Weekly pick-ups: Week 118!

Last week I showed you how I got 5 used games for €15; a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Well this week I went back for 5 other games!

Medal of Honor Airborne, Max Payne 3, Never Dead, Splinter Cell HD Trilogy and X-Men Destiny (PS3)

I really wanted Medal of Honor Airborne and the Splinter Cell HD Trilogy and the other games I just picked in the store. I’ve played a bit of Max Payne 3 in the past but I don’t remember much of it. X-Men Destiny is a game that got pretty mediocre reviews but I’ll give any X-Men game a go and I don’t know anything about Never Dead but it just looked cool!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 117!

The World Cup is nearing its conclusion and Belgium is still in it! I got the luck of the Belgian national team with a ‘5 games for €15’ deal and I added some games to my ever growing Xbox One collection!

Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare, Injustice Gods Among Us, The Adventures of TinTin; The secrets of the Unicorn and X-Men Origins Wolverine (PS3)

The games normally were around €14.98 each so getting them all for €15 is a pretty sweet deal. Both Red Dead Redemption games were missing in my collection and I want to finish them both before the second one hits the shelves. I already own Injustice digitally on the PS4 but I really wanted a physical copy of the game and a PS3 version will do. The TinTin game is a bit of nostalgia for me because I’ve been a TinTin fan since I was a little kid and lastly the X-Men game looks to be a fun action game.

Heihachi Tekken 7 Totaku figurine

I already got two figures of this collection (both from God Of War) and when I saw this Heihachi figurine I just had to have it. Fits in nicely with my next purchase.

The Crew 2 Deluxe Edition and Tekken 7 (Xbox One)

I liked The Crew; it wasn’t anything special but it was an enjoyable racing game. They added a bunch of stuff (mostly boats and planes) to the sequel so I’m curious to see how that pans out. Tekken 7 was on sale for €25 and my dad had a coupon for €5 so I got it for €20 which is a good deal.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 116!

What a week! Belgium won their first WC game and I finally found a collectors edition that I wanted for a very long time!

Recore (Xbox One)

I want all the Xbox One console exclusives so I had to have this one, especially for the low price of just €10. I’ve read some things online about it and it seems like something I would enjoy!

Burnout Paradise Remastered (PS4)

Remasters are so hot in 2018; it feels like there’s a new one announced every 5 seconds. Some of them are great but some of them are definitely just cash grabs that don’t deserve your attention. Burnout Paradise falls in the first category for me. It comes bundled with all the DLC and it runs great on the PS4. Now they just need to remaster the first Burnout games (especially Revenge) and then I’m a happy camper!

Hitman Absolution Collectors Edition (PS3)

The search is over! This Collectors Edition was on my ‘want’ list for so long but I never found one in decent condition for a fair price until I found this one (sealed!) on eBay! The game and box are in French but that’s not a big deal for me because I really wanted to Agent 47 figurine! It just looks so cool.

Maximo Action Figure

Last week I declared my love for the Maximo franchise and that love has only gotten stronger. A few days ago I was browsing eBay and I found that Maximo had some action figures (officially licensed by Capcom) and I just have to have one. I went with Maximo for obvious reasons but I might go back and buy the rest to.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 102!

Another week, another huge haul of games!

Fable Anniversary, Fable II and Borderlands Triple Pack (Xbox 360)

I really wanted to play the Fable games again and the good thing about the Fable games is that they are backwards compatible with the Xbox One. Fable Anniversary was pretty expensive but I didn’t really mind. Borderlands Triple Pack is a weird one for me; I never really enjoyed a Borderlands game but for the low price of €8 I was willing to give them another go.

Deux EX Mankind Divided, Assassins Creed Unity, Evil Within 2 (PS4)

Yes, I know that you can currently get Deux EX for free with Playstation Plus; I completely forgot about it. Unity completes my Assassins Creed collection (well, I still need the chronicles collection but I’ll find those eventually) and Evil Within 2 was just really cheap so why not? I’m a big horror movie/game guy so this game must be right up my alley.

The Elders Scrolls Online (Xbox One)

The game was really cheap and that’s the only reason that I got it. I’ll definitely play it but I doubt that I’ll actually enjoy it. I’m just not a big fan of the newer Elder Scrolls games (I loved Morrowind but after that I just couldn’t get into Elder Scrolls games).

Enslaved and Little Big Planet (PS3)

Two games to add to the PS3 collection; Enslaved looked cool and interesting and Little Big Planet is a must have for any Playstation owner.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 101!

What a crazy week! I got some more PS3 games and I added an absolute gem to my PS2 collection!

Crysis 2, Crysis 3, Aliens vs Predator, ModNation Racers, Sacred 3 first edition, Dragon Age 1 and Dragon Age 2 (PS3)

The ‘get 3, pay 2’ deal was still going strong so I decided to add some more games to my PS3 collection. I mostly got games that looked interesting. I played Modnation Racers for a bit and that’s really fun. And today I’m going to see how Crysis 2 runs on a PS3.

Assassins Creed Ezio Collection (Xbox One)

My colleague is a big Assassins Creed fan and he’s the reason that I wanted to revisit the series. The Ezio collection is perfect for that because it has 3 games!

Assassins Creed (Xbox 360)

The only Assassins Creed game that I ever completed. I got it just to complete my collection but because it is backwards compatible with the Xbox One, I can still pop it in and play it sometime.

Assassins Creed Syndicate, Sniper Elite 4 and Dragon Age Inquisition GOTY (PS4)

I bought Sniper Elite 4 in an impuls but it was really entertaining. The story is a bit short but it’s a very enjoyable game. The other two games fit in nicely with the rest of my purchases (completing the series of both Assassins Creed and Dragon Age).

Metal Slug Anthology (PS2)

I’m a HUGE Metal Slug fan and this Anthology gives me a ton of Metal Slug for a very low price.

Incredible Hulk Q-Fig

The Q-Fig series is a bit like funko POP’s but better (at least for me) because the overal finish and look is just nicer (once again, just my opinion). My brother got this for me and it looks great!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 100!

Time for a party! For this 100th blog entry I got some sweet PS3 and Xbox One games and 1 pretty big pluche!

GTA IV, GTA Episodes of Liberty City, Army of Two 40th Day, Warriors Orochi 3 and Dynasty Warriors Strike force (PS3)

I wasn’t a big fan of GTA IV when I first played it but I decided to give it a second chance and I also got the two big DLC packs for it. The three other games were a bundle; get 3, pay 2.

Stardew Valley Collectors Edition and Rayman Legends (Xbox One)

Normally I only buy Xbox One exclusives but I made an exception for these two games. Stardew Valley looks to be a lot of fun (and a bit of a time eater) and I just love Rayman Legends; the game is so beautiful and fun to play!

Junimo pluche

Got it for €12 for no particular reason. It just looks cool.

Medal of Honor Rising Sun (Xbox)

A great entry in the, now dead, Medal of Honor franchise. Got it for €2 in a second hand shop.

Master Roshi coin bank

I’m a big Dragon Ball fan and I found this great looking coin bank for €12 and I just couldn’t resist it. Fits in nicely with the rest of my Dragon Ball figurines!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 97!

Weekly pick ups returns with a bang! I added a lot of games to my PS3 collection and I got a new console! Let’s do this!

SNES Mini

I bought this for two reason: to play Super Castlevania IV and Super Mario World and the reason that I got this instead of a classic SNES; the size. This fits perfectly on my desk without needing to move everything around.

Soul Calibur IV, Soul Calibur V, Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, Silent Hill Homecoming (PS3)

The announcement of Soul Calibur VI made me so excited that I wanted to play a Soul Calibur game again. I found both games for a very good price and I already finished both of them. Great games and I can’t wait for Soul Calibur VI. Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions is a great Spider-Man game because you can play as different versions of Spider-Man who all play differently. The noir version of Spider-Man is a stealth specialist, whilst the venom version of Spider-Man uses brute force. The variety really makes the game fun to play. I’m a big fan of Dynasty Warriors games and I still missed this one in my collection so I picked it up. And then we got Silent Hill Homecoming; I haven’t played it yet but I really wanted to play a Silent Hill game. I’m still looking for the HD collection of the first games but that seems to be pretty hard to find (and a bit too expensive).

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package (PS4)

This version includes all the DLC and extra’s that were released for Dead Rising 4 on Xbox One and PC. I’m not a huge fan of this game because it is a bit too easy. Still a fun game to play though.

Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (Xbox One)

One of the most popular games on Steam right now and that’s why people were really excited that it would get an Xbox One release. Well it turns out that the game isn’t optimized for the Xbox One and therefore it runs horribly. The graphics are bad and the framerate dips below 30 a bit too much. It is an early access title so things can still improve drastically but so far it isn’t a great game on the Xbox One.

Puzzle Bobble Universe (3DS)

It’s Puzzle Bobble; what more can I say? This game is perfect for short gaming sessions of 10-15 minutes and that’s exactly why I got it.

Are you guys a fan of these mini versions of classic consoles? And which console do you want to see remade as a mini console? Let me know in the comments!
