Weekly pick-ups: Week 108!

I went thrift shopping and found some nice PS2 and Xbox games (and a PS2 demo unit that I couldn’t buy 😦 ). I also got a couple of remakes for the PS4 and a guide for my favorite game of all time!

Stuntman (PS2)

I remember playing this game when I was a kid and the only thing that I thought back then was ‘Damn, this is difficult’. I look forward to playing it again to see if I got better at the game.

Titan Quest, Assassins Creed Rogue Remastered, A Way Out (PS4)

Titan Quest and A Way Out are games that I bought solely to play them in co-op with a friend. We’ve been playing a bit of ‘A Way Out’ and so far it’s fun. Assassins Creed Rogue is the only AC game that I’ve never played but people told me that it was a lot like Assassins Creed Black Flag and that’s my favorite AC game so I decided to give it a go!

GTA Vice City Guide

I’m a big fan of physical guide; I just love reading trough them even when I’m not playing the game. I never had a guide for GTA Vice City so I went on Amazon and found one in pretty good condition for €10. Great deal if you ask me.

Project Gotham Racing 2 and SSX On Tour (Xbox)

PGR is my favorite racing franchise on the Xbox (Yes, I prefer PGR over Forza) and I’m really sad that they don’t make a new one but I can now at least relive the greatness that is PGR2. SSX On Tour isn’t a great SSX game but it’s still fun and it was cheap so why not?

What’s your take on the remake/remastered culture? Do you like that they remake some of the older gems or do you think that it’s just a quick cash grab? Let me know in the comments!

My E3 2017 Top 5 !

A ton of new games have been announced/shown on E3 and I’m going to list my personal favorites. Let’s do this!

1.God Of War : Be A Warrior

We got some gameplay footage of the new God of War game and it looks amazing! I’m already looking forward to kill that giant snake thing we see at the end of the trailer.

2. Spider-Man!

An exclusive Spider-Man game for the PS4 will always interest me especially one that looks as good as this one. The combat reminds me a lot of the Batman Arkham games and that’s a good thing; I really love the timing based combat. A good Spider-Man off course has good web slinging and this game seems to deliver on that front; the web slinging looks fun and solid. The worst part of this game is its release date: 2018. Bummer!

3. Call of Duty WII Multiplayer trailer!

I haven’t been excited for a new COD game since Black Ops but this one put me right back on the hype train. I’m skeptical that the multiplayer will look this good and fluid but we shall see. The trailer didn’t show any exuberant skins on the weapons and I hope that this is also the case for the final game. I don’t want to play a World War 2 shooter with a pink MP40.

4. Skull and Bones

My favorite Assassins Creed game is Black Flag so you can see why I’m excited for this game. I’d love a good online pirate game but it is still Ubisoft so I’m skeptical; how are the servers going to be ? What about the balance ? I’m going to try to get access to the beta to see how the game plays but the trailer does look good.

5. A Way Out

2 brothers breaking out of jail might not sound like the most interesting premise ever but what is interesting is the fact that it is co-op. I love a good co-op game and this might be a very good one!

Honorable mentions:

  • Wolfenstein II The New Colossus
  • Marvel vs Capcom Infinite (the gameplay looks great!)
  • Xbox One X
  • Need for Speed Payback
  • Metro Exodus
