Lean month. Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection is my only game-related purchase, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 my only movie-related one. I'm curious about the Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors, even though I know it won't be as good as the indispensably cheesy efforts put forth by The Immortals from the 90s.
Both Tron Legacy and Tron Classic should be worthwhile as a rental; especially the latter on Blu-ray, if just to see how much they cleaned up the picture quality. (Right, and there's that Tron Legacy Reconfigured remix album to look forward to as well!)
I won't be picking up HP 7 part 1 - I'm waiting for the later Ultimate Edition release instead. It was released at the end of March, picking up Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22, and then also a couple of Doctor Who complementary releases are out in April as well - the Mara stories Kinda and Snakedance. Final Fantasy Creatures Kai Vol. 3 set it also out at the end of April, plus I pre-ordered both versions of Dissdia Duodecim Chaos and Cosmos wall scrolls from CD Japan.
For games pretty light, just Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection and that's it.
No Portal 2 love? I'll be getting that on day one for PS3 if Amazon isn't lying to me about the "release date delivery" option. I also plan to pick up FF4 (PSP) but probably not immeditately.
And these CDs:
-SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE -EVOLUTIONAL THEORY
-Ayumi Hamasaki/ayu-mi-x 7 -Limited Complete Box-
-Rockman Zero Collection Soundtrack -resonnat vie-
I also want to be literate in the memes that Portal 2 will spawn.
If anything, this is the thing I am LEAST looking forward to.
Portal was a nice and quirky game, but the memes were run into the ground to such a ridiculous extent that it actually hurt my appreciation of the game in retrospect.
I can't pass on getting two versions of Portal 2 for $35.
Actually, I think you get three versions: PS3, PC, and Mac. Of course the silliness of the freebies is just because Valve wants their trojan horse (Steam) to be on everything you own.
Concerning memes, I'll be surprised if we see any out of Portal 2. Memes usually arise out of unexpected places.
Let's see... what have I got/will I get this month, from a variety of sources...
