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.


What console did you own in the early 2000’s? A Playstation 2? An Xbox? Let me know in the comments!
