A funny thing happened on the way to the latest Broke Gamer review, two of the three games on the list for voting were assigned to me for review by another website. With that in mind, I’m proud to present the next game up on the hit parade…

Congrats on the honor, oh character who barely appears in the game.

If you were hoping to see a review of Asura’s Wrath or SSX then don’t panic, they’re coming too! Although you’ll have to check out the full reviews on WorthPlaying, I’ll still provide excerpts over here.


Don't worry, we're getting reviewed too!


I’m nowhere near done playing Kingdoms of Amalur yet, but a review will be coming soon. With that in mind I should have time for one more review this month, so I’m letting the last of the nominees duke it out to see who will be the winner. The plan is to leave the poll open until Friday, February 24 at noon ET, and then whatever game is leading at that point will be declared the victor.

As of right now SSX leads by a single vote (that’s why it gets to have its picture at the top of the post), but anything can happen in the coming days. Remember, the voting restrictions have been lifted so you can vote as often as you want for any of the finalists. Or, if you love them all you can vote for each of them an equal number of times, but honestly that’s kind of dumb. Take a stand already!

Also, if you’re able to donate to the Broke Gamer fund then please do. I’m willing to chip in some of my own money for the next game if need be, but the livelihood of this blog really rests on the generosity of its readers. If you’ve already donated once then I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you are moved to donate again then I’m sure you’ll be richly rewarded in both this life and the next with high scores, infinite lives and eternal gaming fame.

Also, please know that I pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 some time ago, so that review is coming for sure next month without you even having to vote for it. Consider it my way of showing you how much I love you guys, and not the truth of the matter, which is if I didn’t buy that game my wife would probably divorce me and kick me out immediately.

Good news everyone! In less than a week enough money has been raised for the first ever Broke Gamer review! And according to the poll the winner is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

I’ll head out this weekend and pick up a copy of the game, then set to the work of crafting the review. Amalur is a rather lengthy title so it may take me a bit to get through, but I promise to have the review up just as soon as I finish the game.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who contributed and remind you that it’s not going to stop here. If you have the means, please donate and vote so that we can get the next game slotted for review. Right now Final Fantasy XIII-2 holds a very slim lead, but you guys are the ones who decide.
