Weekly pick-ups: Week 130!

Another pretty solid week for me; got some new action figures, added some games to both my PS2 and Xbox collection and so much more! Let’s jump right into it!

Black Panther and Captain America action figure

My mom found these for €2 each; pretty awesome! I didn’t have a Black Panther or Captain America figurine so they fit in nicely with the rest of my Marvel collection.

Maximo vs the Army of Zin Strategy Guide 

My love for the Maximo games has been on full display the last couple of weeks and this week I got the official guide for the second game. I bought this guide from the same guy who sold me the guide for the first game and it’s in the same, excellent, condition! It took a couple of weeks to arrived and I even thought that it wouldn’t arrive at all (the tracking code didn’t update for weeks) but in the end it was all good!

Need for Speed Underground 2 and GTA 3 (PS2)

Another find by my mom this time in a goodwill store! Games were €1.5 each and they are both complete! Well except that GTA III has the GTA Vice City disc but that isn’t that big of a deal. Just nice to have a copy that has the poster because that was missing from my Xbox version.

Call of Duty Black Ops IIII (PS4)

H1Z1 has made me love battle royale games so I just had to grab this one to play the Blackout game mode. So far it’s a ton of fun but I haven’t gotten a win yet!

Batman Dark Tomorrow and Medal of Honor European Assault (Xbox)

Got these on Gameforce for €6 and €4 respectively. I didn’t know anything about the Batman game and that’s why I picked it up; I looked up some reviews and apparently it’s pretty bad but I’ll give it a god. Medal of Honor European Assault had been on my wish list for a while so I’m happy that I can finally cross it off!

Payday 2 Dallas Mask

A friend and I had been talking about getting a mask like this for a while but we never found one that we liked (price and quality wise). So when we saw these on Gameforce we just had to buy them! I picked the Dallas mask because it’s my favorite design.

What’s a game that’s on your wish list that you really want? Let me know in the comments!


H1Z1: Down a Man? Just Carry Harder! (PS4)

What do you do when your buddy dies in a game of duo’s? Give up? Well, I never give up! I decided to go for the win even though I was outnumbered. The taste of success never tasted any sweeter!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 129!

Two comics and two games: perfectly balanced as all things should be!

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and Wolfenstein: The Deep!

I’ve seen the animated version of Gotham by Gaslight and I very much enjoyed it so I decided to buy the comic it was based on. I don’t know anything about the Wolfenstein comic but I love Wolfenstein so I thought: why not?

Forza Horizon 4 (Xbox One) 

I prefer the Horizon games over the normal Motorsport games because they are more fun and this entry is the best one yet! Everything just works a lot better (and quicker) than in Forza Horizon 3.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III (PC)

The game has a co-op mode and it was just €5 so yeah; I’ll ignore the bad reviews for that.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 128!

A lot of the big releases are lurking around the corner : Forza Horizon 4 is next week and then the train just doesn’t stop: Soul Calibur VI, Red Dead Redemption 2, Hitman 2 , …: my wallet is going to have a hard time. So I didn’t got anything too crazy this week: just a couple of games for the PS3 and PS2.

Wolfenstein (PS3)

I’ve played this before on the Xbox 360 and I remembered it being a bit ‘meh’ but I wanted to give it another go and well it’s nothing special.

Castlevania and Alone in the Dark: New Nightmare (PS2)

I had the urge to play a Castlevania game when I heard the news of the remasters of SOTN and Rondo of Blood so I went online and got this. Played it a bit and so far I enjoy it. It’s totally different from the Castlevania games that I love but still enjoyable. I got Alone in the Dark because it was cheap and because I like horror movies/games.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 127!

The last couple of weeks were pretty crazy: I got a new PS4, bought a bunch of figures and games; complete madness. The madness is over and we’re back with a more normal week. Couple of games and a figurine: not too bad.

Valkyria Revolution (Xbox One)

Found it in the budget bin for €5 and decided to grab it. I then realized it was the ‘bad’ Valkyria game but ey: I’ll give it a shot!

Forza Motorsport (Xbox)

Bit of a surprise that I didn’t own this one. I love the Forza series (both the motorsport and Horizon) and this one started it all. It’s still a great game today and I picked it up for €3.5 from a thrift store!

Maximo Captain Cadaver Figurine

The set is almost complete! Found this one on eBay (in Italy) for around €10 including shipping: pretty good deal. Now I only need ‘Bokor La Bas’ but I haven’t managed to track that one down.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 126!

The craziness continues! This week I picked up some Marvel blu-rays, got a statue for a free to play game and added something to my Maximo collection! Let’s get right into it!

Batman and Two-Face from the DC Designer Series

You can never have too many Batman action figures (that’s a saying right?) so when I saw these for €7.99 each I didn’t even think twice about picking them up. They had some other variants but they didn’t really appeal to me; these two however look awesome!

Quake Champions Scalebearer Edition (PC)

I had seen the statue before but because of the price tag (around €90) I never really paid any close attention to it. Last week however I got some coupons which lowered the price by a lot: I paid €30 for it which is a really good deal!

Avengers Age of Ultron, Deadpool 2 Steelcase edition and Doctor Strange (blu-ray)

Avengers and Doctor Strange were part of a 3 for €25 deal (my brother got the Revenant); pretty good price. Deadpool 2 is the only blu-ray I’ve ever pre-ordered because I love the art on the steelcase. Oh and Deadpool 2 is also an amazing movie.

Maximo Strategy Guide.

This guide was only released in the US so I was really pleased when I found it on eBay. It’s in great condition and hardly ever read.
