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 !

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!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 84!

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.

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).

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.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 79!

You have failed this city! A lot of the times (especially in season 1) these words were followed by a deadly arrow. No risk of dying from my purchase this week but it is Green Arrow related!

Q-Fig Green Arrow!

The Green Arrow uses a lot of trick arrows but one of the most iconic ones is the boxing glove arrow so you can why I picked this up. It wasn’t that expensive (around €20) and it has quiet a lot of detail. Great addition to my DC collection!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 78!

Sometimes I browse online shops just for the fun of it. I’m not really looking for anything in particular; I’m just looking around. I did this a couple of days ago when I came across this Batman v Superman Armored Batman figure. And it is awesome!

Batman v Superman: Armored Batman

This Batman figure is 50 cm tall and still has a decent amount of articulation and detail. The paint job could have been better but overall it is a very nice looking Batman figurine. I made a comparison shot to show you guys just how big it really is. The Batman figure in front of it is about 15 cm tall.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 70!

This week we get a visit from both Lego Batman and the Punisher!

Lego Batman: Joker Balloon Escape

I haven’t seen the Lego Batman movie (yet) but this Lego set was just too cool to not pick up. I might pick up more of the Lego Batman sets in the near future because they are freaking awesome!

The Punisher (Xbox)

The Punisher is an underrated action game based on The Punisher comics and the 2004 Punisher movie (very loosely based). The game is very violent (mostly because of the executions) and the story is pretty cool. It has a lot of resemblance with how we saw the Punisher in Daredevil; gritty and no-nonsense.

 

What’s your favorite superhero game of all time? Mine’s probably Arkham City but I also really enjoyed Spider-Man 2 and Marvel vs Capcom 2.
