God I don't even know anymore

I decided to not pick up Dead Rising Mobile. I seemed to be the only one rooting for that one, and I don't usually let word-of-mouth get to me, but the reception for that game is universally abysmal. The "hunger" aspect of it, as well as the fact that you really can lose everything you worked for in one blow, combine to make me never want to touch the game, even if it were on sale for $0.99.

Here's a list of games I'm holding out on, but will buy eventually:

Infinity Blade
Real Racing 2
Shadow Guardian
NOVA 2
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Aralon: Sword and Shadow
Riven

And probably a ton of other games. I'm holding off on these for various reasons:

- Space on my computer is close to being non-existent... let alone space on my iPhone XD
- Waiting for updates to fix potential problems (Lara Croft is the only one that applies here)
- SO many apps on my iPhone that I haven't even started yet... so why pick up any more?

For the EA sale I picked up Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Scrabble, Scrabble for iPad (future investment), Battlefield Bad Company 2 (apparently not the most wonderful game on the app store ), and The Sims 3 (I figured if I ever got the urge to play a Sims game, I can't do much better than $1)

The games I'm most likely buying as soon as I figure things out:

Aralon
Riven

Dead Rising is terrible in every aspect except the mall which is very fun to explore, the weapons which vary and are fun to use and just the level of fun. It is easily the most fun game on the appstore but shame presentation etc is alcking.
