Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 94!

A huge haul this week; I bought a lor of games for 3 different consoles!

Conflict Desert Storm 1 + 2 and Lord of the Rings Third Age (PS2)

I never owned the original Conflict Desert Storm but I did play the first level a lot on a demo that came with the official Playstation magazine. The second one is just an overall improvement and it’s still fun to play. Lord of the Rings Third Age is a bit of a sad story; it’s one of my favorite LOTR games but the disc is damaged so it doesn’t work properly. I bought a new copy (for the original Xbox) and that should be on its way !

Spider-Man Edge of Time + Green Lantern (PS3)

Two solid additions to my ever growing ‘superhero’ gaming collection. I’ve completed the Spider-Man game before and I loved it but I haven’t played the Green Lantern game. I hope it’s better than the movie because that was rubbish.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Collector’s Edition + Assassins Creed Origins Deluxe Edition + Friday The 13th (PS4)

So many games; so little time. I’ve completed the main story of Wolfenstein II and let me tell you; it’s amazing. The story is solid and it has its fair share of ‘WTF’ moments and the gameplay feels smooth. I haven’t gotten around to play Assassins Creed but my co worker absolutely loves it so I’m pretty excited to dive into it. And last but certainly not least; Friday The 13th. What better game to play on Halloween night than a game based on one of the most famous slasher franchises. The game isn’t perfect and has some glaring issues but when you find a good set of players it’s really fun to play.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 80!

Superheroes and Lego go together like bread and butter. This week I got hands on one of the Marvel Lego games!

Lego Marvel Super Heroes (PS4)

My mom actually bought this for my on a yard sale for €5; a great price for a great game!

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

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer #2 !

First thoughts: The trailer might just show a little too much but it does make hyped for the movie so it has served its purpose (even though I’m not a big fan of trailers spoiling a ton of a movie. The Justice Trailer showed how to make a good trailer that doesn’t give away a lot of important stuff so it’s a shame that Spider-Man Homecoming didn’t go the same route). Tom Holland as Spider-Man is just great; he’s a down to earth, witty guy which just fits the role of Spider-Man. It’s also really great that we see Iron-Man in this movie; something that just wasn’t possible before. Overall I’m pretty excited for this movie but what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 72!

This week we get a visit from Captain America himself and we go on a trip inside a Lego World!

Captain America: Super Soldier (PS3)

A game that I wanted in my collection for a long time but I never found a copy for a decent price; until now. The game isn’t too special but it’s a pretty fun action game with Captain America that is based on the first Captain America movie.

Lego Worlds (PC)

Lego Worlds is a Minecraft style game but with Lego which is kind of funny considering that Minecraft itself was basically based on Lego (do/build whatever you want). I’ve played the game for about 2 hours and I’m not a huge fan. The game feels unfinished/unpolished; building stuff feels clunky, the controls aren’t great (playing with a controller helps) and most of the quests are very straight forward and easy. I’ll continue playing it hoping that it’ll receive some updates but for now I’m not a big fan.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 37!

It’s been awhile since something Marvel related popped up in this segment but today that drought ends! Besides the Marvel pickups I also added some blu-rays to my growing blu-ray collection.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Power Charged Electro Figure

I know, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a pretty mediocre (some would say bad) film but that didn’t stop me from picking up this toy. It’s rather small but it has a pretty cool light up feature. The fact that it cost less than €4 made it even better.

Avengers Age of Ultron All-Stars Hulk Figure

Two things made me buy this figure: the price and the fact that this was by far the best looking one they still had in the shop. The other one that was still available, Captain America, looks absolutely horrible. This figurine gets a spot in front of my Hulk collector’s edition DVD.

The Imitation Game, The Purge Anarchy and Welp (Blu-ray)

The Imitation Game is a movie that my brother really likes, the Purge Anarchy is a lot better than the first one (that was just boring) and Welp is a Belgian horror film and even though I thought it was pretty mediocre, I still bought it to support the makers.
