Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 55!

Last week I bought two consoles and this week I added a handheld to my collection.

Gameboy Advance

I had an original Gameboy laying around but the screen didn’t work properly  so I had no way of playing my Gameboy games. At first I looked at old Gameboys for a replacement but those prices have skyrocketed over the last few months. After a while I found a boxed GBA which was just perfect! It was complete and in good condition and it wasn’t expensive (€25 including shipping).


Soul Calibur 2 (Xbox)

This purchase is definitely a mixed bag. I love Soul Calibur 2 and it’s a great game for my collection but I wasn’t so happy about the condition of the game. It didn’t include a manual (the description was super vague; ‘sometimes’ you get a manual depending on the stock) and the case is an Xbox 360 case and not an original Xbox one. The price was fair but I still expected a bit more but the game works and that’s the most important thing for now. I’ll probably buy a complete copy in the future.

Ryse: Son of Rome (PC)

Picked this up for €4.99 on Humble Bundle and I love it! The graphics are great, the fighting mechanics are smooth and the story is pretty interesting.

What’s your favorite handheld of all time? Let me know in the comments!
