Weekly pick-ups: Week 114!

I got a bunch of stuff this week; some games (it was bargain bin time again), blu rays and two TMNT figurines!

Donatello and Michelangelo TMNT figures

The 90’s TMNT cartoon is one of my favorite cartoons of all time so when I saw these figurines in that style I just had to have them. I already owned a Rocksteady figurine from the same range which is great; they now share a spot on my figurine shelf!

Spider-Man Homecoming and IT (blu ray)

Spider-Man Homecoming is the best live action Spider-Man movie because it just perfectly captures who Spider-Man is (Tom Holland is perfect for the role). IT was a great horror film that I, as a horror movie collector, just needed to have. I got both blu-rays for €20 which isn’t a bad deal!

Might No.9 (Xbox One)

The reviews for this games aren’t great but I really wanted to give it a go because I like the old Mega Man games. And it was only €3.99 so even if I don’t like it, I didn’t waste too much money.

Socom US Navy Seals (PS2)

I remember getting this game (and the headset) together with my OPM2 (official playstation magazine) subscription and I immediately fell in love with it. I know that there are a lot of tactical shooters that are better than Socom but it’s just a bit of nostalgia for me!

Command and Conquer Collection (PC)

17 Command and Conquer games for €1? Count me in!

Lego Marvel Avengers and Superbeat Xonic (PS Vita)

Lego games are always a ton of fun and getting this also helps my PS Vita collection. I didn’t know anything about Superbeat Xonic but I saw that it was a rhythm game so I just bought it. Lego Marvel Avengers was €5 and Superbeat only €3 so yeah; can’t really say no to that.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 113!

Another week with a bunch of new games so let’s get right to it!

Agony and Raiden V Directors Cut (PS4)

Agony was a game that I had on my radar for a long time; the setting look really cool and I’m always up for a horror game. Raiden V is a shoot em up game of the purest form. It’s nothing too special but it’s a ton of fun and you can find it for a very low price (I paid around €15 for mine,new)

Mark McMorris Infinite Air and Resident Evil Revelations (Xbox One)

As a collector I always check the budget bin when I can because you never know which little gems you’re going to find. I got those two games for €5 each which is an absolute steal. I’ve played the Infinite Air game a bit but I’m not a huge fan of realistic snowboard games so I don’t know how much I’m actually going to play it but for €5 I was willing to give it a go. I’ve already played Revelations and I thought it was a good game but I didn’t own it on the Xbox One so why not?

What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten from a budget bin? Let me know in the comments!

FIFA18 – Just Have Fun (Montage)!

Since the introduction of Fut Champs in FIFA17 the game has gotten a lot more serious. Done are the days when you would face a Brazilian skiller squad in higher divisions or when people tried to beat you with all kinds of crazy cards. These days, especially in Weekend League and in the Daily Knockout Tournaments, people just want to get the win. That results in sometimes boring games where my opponent starts to pass the ball around as soon as he gets the lead. I’m not a great FIFA player (I finish around Gold 2/Gold 3 in Fut Champs) but I like to have fun and that’s what I wanted to show in this montage. I rather score a beautiful goal and lose than play like a ‘dick’ and win. I also love playing with players that don’t fit the meta of the game; just because I like them in real life or because their card appeals to me. I hope you guys enjoy this video and I see you next time!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 112!

Only two games this week and both have the number ‘2’ in their title so you know what time it is; sequel time!

State of Decay 2 (Xbox One)

The first State of Decay was a very solid zombie survival game but it had one glaring weakness; no multiplayer. They fixed that in the sequel and they added a bunch of new features to keep you busy. It’s also released for a budget price (€30) which sweetens the deal even more.

Steamworld Dig 2 (PS4)

I’ve never played the first Steamworld Dig game and I didn’t know much about this sequel but the trailer in combination with the budget price made me buy it. I’ve played it for about 2 hours now and it’s a really fun action/platform game with a bit of humor.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 111!

It’s been a while since I’ve done my last weekly pick ups and that’s mostly because I waited for some stuff to arrive. Now most of the things that I’ve ordered have arrived so I can update you guys on what I got! Are you ready? I sure hope so because I’m going to get right to it!

Kratos and Atreus Totaku Figures

The new God of War is easily one of the best games on the PS4 yet so it’s no wonder that it got a ton of merchandise. I got these two Totaku figures for €15 each, which is a good price for figurines which look as good as these ones.

X-Com 2 (Xbox One)

I wasn’t really looking for any Xbox One games but I found this one in the bargain bin for €4 so why not? I’ve played the first game on PC and I enjoyed that so I hope that this one is more of the same.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap (PS4)

Nostalgia fever hit me with this one. It’s a remake of a classic Sega Mastersystem game and it’s really fun. It also came with some fun collectibles (a keychain, a cd and a little instruction booklet) that gave it that extra retro feel!

God of War Collectors Edition Unboxing!

I’ve always loved the God of War games.The mix of a great story and solid fighting mechanics made the franchise a must have for Playstation owners. The newest addition in the series dumps the Greek mythology and goes all in on the Norse mythology. I personally like that move; it keeps the series fresh. I went out and got the collectors edition that I unbox in the video below. Have you picked up the new God of War game yet? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 109!

A very calm week but I did get an amazing new game for the PS4 (that I already finished!)

Detective Pikachu (3DS)

I got this because it looked interesting and fun and something totally different from the normal Pokémon games. I haven’t played it yet but I very much look forward to it!

Far Cry 5 Deluxe Edition (PS4)

My God; what a game. The story is great, the gameplay is a ton of fun and there’s a lot to keep you busy if you don’t want to follow the story. I have finished the game in around 18 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it. If you liked Far Cry 3/4 then you need to play this one!

Iron Man Unmasked and Black Widow Pop Vinyl Figures

My Mom got these for me because she knows I like comic book movies. They fit nicely in the rest of my Marvel figurine collection!

Have you played Far Cry 5? If so what did you think about it? Let me know in the comments below!
