More Q1 2010 Video Game Haikus

milesRob has a good point about how the traditional holiday gaming gold rush has not been abolished, merely moved back a couple of months. Looking at the Q1 release list, it’s absolutely packed. And then you get to April, and there are like five games coming out, total, on all platforms combined. When will they learn.

Anyway, I thought Rob’s game haiku idea was pretty good, and like all good ideas, it deserves to be stolen. Submitted for your consideration, my most anticipated games of the next three months… in haiku.

Feb. 16: Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth

New Ace Attorney
Takes things out of the courtroom
Objection sustained

March 9: Final Fantasy XIII

Spike up your blond hair,
Androgynous hero-man.
Time to save the world.

March 14: Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver

My face, red with shame
But I buy it ev'ry time
Let me show you them

March ??: Mega Man 10

8-bit revival
It was cute the first nine times
The hell is Sheep Man?
