I’ve been asked to review yet another RPG for Kombo—another Square RPG called Nier—and what do you know…it also has a guide! So it looks like I’ll be making an unscheduled detour in my current schedule for Nier, which is okay as I’ve become more and more curious about this game the more I hear about it. (I really need to stop listening to podcasts and subscribing to gaming magazines.)
At least, I hope I’ll be able to review this guide as well. After what happened with Bayonetta, I don’t assume anything anymore. BradyGames is handling this one, and they’ve rarely canceled a guide, so I have hope. And a preorder. And the satisfaction of knowing that Amazon will not charge me until they ship the guide. The latter is possibly the most important.
And I believe that Doug Walsh is the primary author for this guide. I can’t say for certain, but I swear I remember reading or hearing somewhere that he was working on it. So I suppose, if the game absolutely sucks, at least the guide will be well done.
So no, I will not be playing Splinter Cell: Conviction or reviewing the guide, but if any of you out there would like to do so and submit a guest review, please feel free to do so!
