Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 85!

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.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 83!

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.
