Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 54!

This week it’s all about consoles! I bought two new (well old really) consoles for my collection and I also bought some PS4 games on PSN.

Sega Dreamcast + VMU + Hydro Thunder

I owned a Dreamcast before (many many years ago) but I sold it because I wanted a new bike. About a week ago I saw a lot of posts celebrating the 17th anniversary of the release of the DC in North America and I decided it was time to get myself another Dreamcast. The set that I got includes everything you need to get started; the console, the controller, a vmu and a game. I chose Hydro Thunder for two reasons; the first is that it’s a fun game and the second one is that it was pretty cheap.

Microsoft Xbox Sega GT 2002/Jet Set Radio Future set

My original Xbox broke and I needed a replacement. I found this one for a decent price and it’s in great condition. The box is a bit damaged but the set came with an extra controller which is always nice. Now I can continue to dominate the court in NBA Street 2!

Killzone Shadow Fall and Air Conflicts Pacific Carriers (PS4)

Killzone was one of my favourite PS2 games but I didn’t really pay attention to any of the sequels because I switched to an Xbox 360 (I didn’t have the money to buy a 360 and a PS3). Now I go back to the series with Shadow Fall. I’ve read some good things about the game online so I don’t think that €9 is a bad price. Air Conflicts Pacific Carriers is one of my guilty pleasures. I love flying games but only the more arcade style games (Dogfight 1942, Blazing Angels, …) so this is right up my alley.
