What We're NOT Playing (Sorry Larry, 'The Pitt')

We weren't able to play many games during GDC last week but now we're back from San Francisco. So here are the games we could play, but aren't going to.

Stephen's Not Playing...

"Fallout 3: The Pitt" (Xbox 360)

Why he's not back in Bethesda's clutches: I can't play any of the new "Fallout 3" downloadable quests until the third and final one raises the level cap. My character is maxed at level 20, so why would I play new content that doesn't let me earn new experience points? The third pack, scheduled for a May release levels the cap. I had asked Bethesda folks if I could be earning experience points in an unregistered way right now. They said "no." So I will wait.

What Tracey's Not Playing...

"Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust" (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

Why she's passing on Larry's latest sleazy adventure: The last "Leisure Suit Larry" game I played was the original on my dad's work computer. I was 9 -- I've been traumatized ever since. I'm not that interested in seducing beautiful women anyway. At least not through the lens of Larry. Do people still buy and play these games? It seems like the kind of thing you buy and then promptly place in a brown paper bag...
