My thoughts: I’m a big fan of Legends Of Tomorrow because the show doesn’t take itself too seriously; the rules don’t really matter too much it’s all about the fun. The mix of characters (some serious some a bit less serious) works really well and that’s why it’s just a lot of fun to watch. This trailer shows us a bit of the new season where the Legends once again travel through time to save the world. I can’t wait for the new season but what did you guys think? Let me know in the comments!
This week features the biggest haul ever; I bought a ‘new’ console, some games and a couple of new figurines!
Gears Of War 12017 Marcus Fenix Action Figure + Gears of War 3 3/4 Inch Marcus Scale Figure
I’m currently playing through the Gears of War games again and I really wanted a GOW figure. I found these two of Marcus Fenix on Amazon for a decent price. I’m probably going to display the bigger one and keep the smaller Neca one in the package.
Call of Duty, Call of Duty United Offensive, Shovel Knight and Rally Authentic Simulation Big Box
Normally I prefer my PC games to be digital (because of the lack of re-sel value) but when they are this cheap I just can’t resist. I got Call of Duty and the expansion for €1 each at a thrift store. I found the big box at the same thrift store for €0.75 and Shovel Knight I got for €0.80. A really good deal for these games if you ask me. I already owned Shovel Knight on the PS4 but the game is just too good to pass up.
PS2 (2 controllers and 2 memory cards were included) + Carry Case + SSX Tricky + 50 Cent Bulletproof + Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2
Initially the plan was to buy a controller and a video cable for my PS One so that I could play on it. But then I found a PS2 + Carry Case + 2 controllers + SSX Tricky + 2 memory cards + Network Adapter (with all the discs/information) for €33 including shipping. I bought it because now I can play my PS1 games on my PS2 and I can buy some of my all time favorite PS2 games. I then went to a thrift store and found 50 cent Bulletproof and Smash Court tennis for €3.50 each. I’m not going to go too crazy with the PS2 games but I’ll look around to find games that I enjoyed as a kid.

No new console this week but I did pick up a game for my newly acquired Xbox One and then some other stuff. Let’s dive into it!
Gears of War 4 (Xbox One)
I found this for €20 new which is an amazing deal knowing that it not only has Gears of War 4 but also includes all the Xbox 360 versions of the previous Gears of War games! Pretty neat.
The Final Destination (blu-ray).
My horror movie collection hadn’t seen any updates in a while so I decided to change that. I’m a big fan of the Final Destination series but this one is definitely the weakest of them all. Weirdly the normal blu-ray version was more expensive than this 2D/3D combo; no idea why.
The Cursed Crusade (PC)
I like games set in the Middle Ages so this game was on my radar for some time. I normally buy all my games on Steam but The Cursed Crusade wasn’t in the store anymore so I had to go to Amazon to get it. It’s good that it was cheap because it isn’t a good game.
What’s your favorite horror movie/horror movie franchise? Let me know in the comments!
Public service announcement: From next week on weekly pick ups will be online at around 9 instead of earlier in the day. Stay tuned because next week will be another BIG post (I already spoiled a bit on my Twitter).
You know that special feeling when you buy a new console? Well, I experienced that this week!
Xbox One S 1 TB + Forza Horizon 3 + Quantum Break + Halo Wars 2 + Gears of War Ultimate Edition + Halo The Master Chief Collection
I wanted a Xbox One for a long time but I never really found one for a decent price. But that changed when I found a Xbox One S 1TB + Forza Horizon 3 + Quantum Break pack for €288. That pack was especially good because I’m only going to use my Xbox One to play exclusive games (console exclusives also count). I then went out and bought Halo Wars 2 (€19,99 new), Gears of War Ultimate Edition (€9, new) and the Halo Master Chief Collection (€24,99 used). A lot of gaming for a relatively small price. And yes, I know that the Xbox One X is coming out in the very near future but I just couldn’t pass up this deal.
What’s your favorite ‘this gen’ console? Let me know in the comments!
Had some clips sitting on my hard drive and I decided to throw them together. Most of the games are on PS4 with the exception of NBA 2K17; that’s on PC! I hope you guys enjoy this short video; next week I’ll be back with a BIG weekly pick ups !
First thoughts: I have been excited for this movie ever since the first teaser dropped and this trailer just fuels my excitement. Some of the shots in this trailer are just drop dead gorgeous! Justice League seems to be a great mix between action and humor; something that previous DCEU movies had trouble with (Ezra Miller is hilarious as the Flash). I’m also pumped to see Ben Affleck as Batman again; he was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman. But what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments!
This week we take a trip to the past. I bought some new/old toys that were a big part of my childhood. Let’s see what I got!
Virgil Tracy Thunderbirds Action Figure Doll (Matchbox)
I loved Thunderbirds growing up; I had all the VHS tapes and I would watch them whenever I could. I also owned most of the toys that were available at the time (including the Tracy Island set) and I loved them! I however stupidly sold them in my teenage years and I regret that decision till this day. A couple of weeks ago I found one of these dolls on eBay; complete and in the box for about €30 with shipping; not a bad price for a piece of my childhood. This doll will get a prominent place in my collection; probably right next to the dvd boxset.
Rocksteady; TMNT classics
Last week I got a bunch of TMNT stuff and this week I added this Rocksteady figure. I bought it on Amazon for €20 and I want to re-watch the classic cartoon every time I look at the packaging. This will go perfect with the Bebop action figure that I got last week!
What did you guys sell in the past that you now regret? Let me know in the comments!
