Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 92!

This week it’s all about South Park!

South Park The Fractured But Whole Collector’s Edition (PS4)

I was a big fan of the Stick of Truth so I didn’t think twice about picking this up. The game is really fun (it has a bit of a slow start but after that it’s great) and the extra’s in the collector’s edition are great. The the Coon figurine is well made and nicely detailed (Ubisoft has a thing for making good figurines/statues) and the post cards are a cool little extra. It also comes with a PS4 download code for the Stick of Truth; great for the people who missed the first game!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 91 !

This week I went to visit an asylum and I bought the highest rated DCEU movie!

Wonder Woman (blu-ray)

Wonder Woman is my favorite DCEU movie for a number of reasons; the action scenes are solid, the dialogue has a good mix between serious and goofy and the build up to the final fight is excellent. There are off course things that I didn’t enjoy (I’m not a huge fan of using so many slow mo shots) but overall it’s a really good movie! Seeing this made me even more excited for the upcoming Justice League film!

 

 

Manhunt 2 (PS2)

Working in a game shop has its perks and finding gems like this for cheap is definitely one of them. I paid €7.99 for this game and it’s in very good condition and complete. On eBay (I know that eBay prices are a bit inflated) one sold last week for €28 (and that came with a €12 shipping cost). Being a fan of the Manhunt series (real shame that it never got a third installment) I look forward to play the second one.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 90 !

This week I added another PS2 classic to my library and FIFA makes a return!

South Park The Fractured But Whole 6 inch Mysterion figurine

The game hasn’t even been released yet but I’m hyped! Stick of Truth was a ton of fun and I expect that this one will be even better. I already got ‘The Coon’ as an RC toy (I forgot to show that in previous posts) and now I added this Mysterion figurine. It’s nicely detailed and painted but the overal finish could have been nicer.

FIFA 18 (PS4)

I had my doubts about buying FIFA this year but in the end I decided to get it anyway. I’m still pretty bad at the game (I can’t defend to save my life) but I’m having fun with it and that’s what counts !

Medal of Honor Frontline (PS2)

One of my favorite PS2 games of all time and the game that got me hooked on first person shooters. I can’t wait to storm the beaches of Normandy once again !

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite: Amazing! Trophy/Achievement guide!

For this trophy you need to complete a 60 hit combo. That might sound difficult but this video will show you an easy way to get it!

This is what you need to do:

  • Go to arcade mode and lower the difficulty to very easy
  • Then select Captain America and Iron Man
  • Proceed and fight until you have 2 bars of power
  • Active the first bar (the easy hyper combo), then press R1 to call in your second character (active switch) and activate their easy hyper combo.
  • The achievement/trophy will unlock after the match is finished!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 89!

This week I added a bunch of games to my ever growing Playstation collection!

Dynasty Warriors 4 and Dynasty Warriors 4 Empires (PS2)

I’m on a quest to complete my Dynasty Warriors collection and these two fit right in. I’m a big fan of the series because these games are really easy to pick up and play.

NBA 2K12 and NBA Street Homecourt (PS3)

I know what you’re thinking; why would anybody buy old sport games? Well because I’m a basketball fan and I love playing the older basketball games (it’s fun to go back and look at the ratings of certain players). It also helps that these games are never really that expensive so they are very easy to collect.

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and NBA 2K18 (PS4)

NBA 2K18 is a bit of a disappointment for me; the game itself is great and fun to play but I hate how everything is now (even more so than previous iterations) based around VC. You get so little VC for playing that you’re forced to buy them to actually progress in the game. That’s a real shame because I never really spent money on a NBA 2K game before (mostly because I only play MyPlayer). Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a fun fighting game but it’s nothing special. The overall presentation isn’t great and it’s a real shame that there aren’t any X-Men characters on the roster. It’s still fun to play but there are better fighting games available at the time (Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 for example).

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 88!

I only got one game this week because the next couple of weeks will be very expensive for me (I pre-ordered so many games!). Let’s see what that mystery game is!

Destiny 2 (PS4)

I only played the beta of Destiny and after that I never really bothered with it. The release of the second game didn’t really change my feelings towards the game until I started playing it. I really enjoy the combat and the way the game looks and feels. Diehard fans might be a bit disappointed with this game but as far as I’m concerned it’s a great!

Which games are you guys going to be in the next couple of weeks/months ? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 87!

This week I get a replica straight from Middle-Earth and I listen to some crazy beats whilst travelling in a maze!

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 (PS4)

I love the first Pac-Man Championship game (I love it so much that I bought it twice!) so when I saw the sequel on sale for a couple of Euros I didn’t think twice about picking it up. It isn’t as great as the first one but it’s still a very fun and solid Pac-Man game.

Sting Replica!

This is something that I didn’t purchase myself; I got it as a gift from my parents. It’s a 67 cm replica of Sting; the blade used by Frodo in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The sword is beautiful and well detailed. Thanks mom and dad!
