Weekly pick-ups: Week 105!

Another big week for pick ups! I got some sweet collectors editions and a brand new controller!

Kingdom Come Deliverance Collectors Edition (PS4)

A great collectors edition for a very good price. If you want to see everything that’s in it, check out my unboxing video here; https://wp.me/p6lqKe-dO

Dynasty Warriors 9 + Steelcase and Carmageddon Max Damage (PS4)

The first open world Dynasty Warriors game! The steelcase was a pre-order extra; great if you love that kind of stuff (and I do love a good steelcase). Carmageddon was cheap and I just wanted to see how it’s like.

Shadow of the Colossus + Valus Statue (PS4)

According to critics, this is the best remaster ever. I still haven’t played it but I have shown the Valus statue in detail on video; check that out right here https://wp.me/p6lqKe-dQ

Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Controller (Xbox One)

A fantastic looking controller for the Xbox One. The skull logo actually lights up in the dark but I’ll probably never see it because I’m not planning on actually using the controller.

Call of Duty Valor Collection

This statue originally retailed at €150 here in Belgium. I liked the look of it but I didn’t want to pay that much. A few days ago however I saw it on Amazon for around €50 which is a much better price so I picked it up. It looks great and it gets a spot in my Call of Duty WWII Collection!

Shadow of the Colossus: Valus Statue Unboxing!

Another unboxing? What is this madness? After the great Collectors edition of Kingdom Come Deliverance, I now unbox the collectors statue of Valus from Shadow of the Colossus. The game apparently is one of the best remakes ever (according to critics) so I look forward to playing it. 

Kingdom Come Deliverance Collectors Edition Unboxing!

In this video I open the Collectors Edition of Kingdom Come Deliverance. The Collectors edition comes with a bunch of cool things (that steelcase just looks amazing) but the party piece is definitely the 6 inch polyresin figurine of Henry. What do you guys think about this CE? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 104!

It was another crazy week; I got sick (which sucks) but I also got some amazing stuff for my collection! Let’s get started!

PS VITA + Lumines, Resistance Burning Skies, Earth Defense Force 2 and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time

The PS Vita was never a hand held that was on my radar. The game library just isn’t my thing and most people asked a bit too much for their Vita. Well that was the case until I found this one for €50 (for the Vita, I bought the games myself). I then went out and bought some Vita exclusive games (Or games that seemed to be fun on the Vita) and I have to be honest; I mostly just play Lumines. The game is so much fun and so addictive that I haven’t really gotten around to playing the other games. I will do that in the future though but for now I’m focused on connecting some blocks!

NBA Live 18, Wolfenstein The New Order, Wolfenstein The Old Blood, The Legend of Kay Anniversary and Zombi (PS4)

I sold my copy of NBA 2K18 but I wanted another basketbal game to keep me entertained. I played the demo of NBA Live 18 and I didn’t hate it; yes, NBA 2K18 is still the better basketball game but at least this one doesn’t force me to use real money to progress my player. The Wolfenstein games are more fillers for my collection; I finished them both in the past (great games, go play them if you haven’t) but then I sold them to finance my purchase of Injustice 2. Now I saw a deal where both games were €10 each and I thought that it was a great time to add them back to my collection. Legend of Kay Anniversary is a game that I played on the PS2 and even though it wasn’t something mind blowing; it was still fun. And finally I got Zombi; a weird purchase because I already own the game digitally for the PS4 and Xbox One. But I really wanted a psychical copy of one of my favorite horror games of the past few years. I know that a lot of people thought it was mediocre at best but I absolutely loved it. You can find my full review for it here: https://wp.me/p6lqKe-1U

James Bond; Agent under Fire (PS2)

This game completes my 007 collection for the ‘recent’ consoles (starting from the PS2). This game is pretty hard to find and most of the time it’s the platinum or classic version and I don’t want that as a collector.

Dark Souls II (Xbox One)

I’m preparing myself for the Dark Souls Remastered so I got the second game in the series (I got the third game last week, check that out if you haven’t already!).

Balrog Funko Pop Vinly Figure

This is the Funko Pop that my brother originally wanted to buy me for Christmas ; he just couldn’t find one so he opted for the Saruman figure. I recently came across it for a fair price and my God is it awesome! It’s bigger than a normal Funko Pop and it just looks bad-ass!

Logitech G413 Carbon and Snakebyte Game Pad Pro Wireless (not pictured) 

I needed a new keyboard and after some Googling I found that the Logitech G413 Carbon was a great mechanical keyboard for the price (it’s €99). I’ve been using it for more than a week now and I like it; I’ve never typed so loud in my entire life! The controller was more of a test; I wanted to see if it was any good for the price. And it really is but you can check out my full review here; https://wp.me/p6lqKe-dC

Snakebyte Game Pad Pro Wireless Review!

PC Gaming is built around playing with a mouse and keyboard but some games (sport or race games) are just way more enjoyable with a good controller. The best option these days seems to be a Xbox 360 or a Xbox One controller. But what if you want a cheaper alternative? Well, that’s where the Game Pad Pro Wireless comes in!

The Snakebyte Game Pad Pro Wireless is a wireless (duh) controller for the PC. In the box you find the controller, the bluetooth dongle and a charging cable; not a whole lot but you get everything to get started. To pair the controller with your PC you simply plug in the USB dongle in a USB port and the controller then syncs automatically; it can’t be any easier. The button and stick layout is very reminiscing of that of an Xbox One controller and that’s a good thing because I’m a big fan of the Xbox One layout. The quality of the buttons and triggers is solid; nothing too special (buttons feel a bit too ‘spongy’) but still very good. Same story with the triggers; they aren’t as nice as those on the Xbox One controller but they are perfectly fine.

The only, little, drawback that I experienced is the shape of the controller. The sharp corners feel a bit weird in your hand and it takes some time to get used to it. I then went out and tested the controller with a couple of games (GRID 2, NBA 2K17 and Rocket League) and all the games immediately recognized the controller and I could jump right into the game. Everything felt smooth and after a while I didn’t even notice the difference between this controller and my normal Xbox One controller.

Conclusion: Are you looking for a wireless controller for your PC but the Xbox One version is too expensive? Well then this controller is for you! It’s super easy to use, the buttons are solid and the battery life is above average. And for it’s low price you can basically buy two of these instead of one Xbox One controller.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 103!

I buy too many games! This week I added a bunch of games to both my PS4 and Xbox One collection!

Overwatch GOTY, Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition, Dark Souls III Apocalypse Edition, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Monster Hunter World, Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy, Resident Evil 5 and Earth Defense Force 4.1 (PS4)

Some of them were pre-orders of games that I really wanted on day one (Dragon Ball, Axiom Verge and Monster Hunter). The rest I got because I found them for cheap or because I liked the special edition aspect of them. Now I just need to find the time to play them all …

Dishonored 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, State of Decay Year One Edition, Batman Arkham Knight, Killer Instinct Combo Breaker pack and Ryse Son of Rome (Xbox One)

These games were all pretty cheap and were on my ‘wanted’ list for a while. I already completed Arkham Knight on the PS4 (I own the CE) but I happily complete it a second time. Same story with Ryse; completed it on PC but I happily fight my way through hordes of enemies once again!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 102!

Another week, another huge haul of games!

Fable Anniversary, Fable II and Borderlands Triple Pack (Xbox 360)

I really wanted to play the Fable games again and the good thing about the Fable games is that they are backwards compatible with the Xbox One. Fable Anniversary was pretty expensive but I didn’t really mind. Borderlands Triple Pack is a weird one for me; I never really enjoyed a Borderlands game but for the low price of €8 I was willing to give them another go.

Deux EX Mankind Divided, Assassins Creed Unity, Evil Within 2 (PS4)

Yes, I know that you can currently get Deux EX for free with Playstation Plus; I completely forgot about it. Unity completes my Assassins Creed collection (well, I still need the chronicles collection but I’ll find those eventually) and Evil Within 2 was just really cheap so why not? I’m a big horror movie/game guy so this game must be right up my alley.

The Elders Scrolls Online (Xbox One)

The game was really cheap and that’s the only reason that I got it. I’ll definitely play it but I doubt that I’ll actually enjoy it. I’m just not a big fan of the newer Elder Scrolls games (I loved Morrowind but after that I just couldn’t get into Elder Scrolls games).

Enslaved and Little Big Planet (PS3)

Two games to add to the PS3 collection; Enslaved looked cool and interesting and Little Big Planet is a must have for any Playstation owner.
