Weekly pick-ups: Week 115!

I got a couple of games for my PS2 and I also got some Ubisoft special editions!

Maximo and Maximo vs the Army of Zin (PS2)

I’m a big fan of Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts on the SNES and the Maximo games feel like a version of that but for the PS2. The difficulty can be brutal sometimes but I like a bit of a challenge.

Splinter Cell Blacklist: Ultimate Edition (PS3)

There are two reasons why I didn’t need this special edition. The first one is that I already own the 5th Freedom Edition (the one with a Sam Fisher figurine) and that I already completed the game on my PS3. There’s however one reason why I did buy this and that’s the watch. It has a freaking Splinter Cell watch. The watch is made of plastic and isn’t the most incredible thing in the world but I think that it looks pretty cool. And I didn’t pay that much for it so why not?

Child of Light Deluxe Edition (PC)

I didn’t know anything about Child of Light and I didn’t even know what was special about the deluxe edition. What I did know was that it only was an Euro so I grabbed it. Haven’t played it yet but I can’t see how I can be disappointed in a game that cost me €1.

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!

 

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 92!

This week it’s all about South Park!

South Park The Fractured But Whole Collector’s Edition (PS4)

I was a big fan of the Stick of Truth so I didn’t think twice about picking this up. The game is really fun (it has a bit of a slow start but after that it’s great) and the extra’s in the collector’s edition are great. The the Coon figurine is well made and nicely detailed (Ubisoft has a thing for making good figurines/statues) and the post cards are a cool little extra. It also comes with a PS4 download code for the Stick of Truth; great for the people who missed the first game!

What games are you excited for this month? Assassins Creed Origins? Super Mario Odyssey? Wolfenstein II ? Let me know in the comments!

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

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 75!

Weekly pick-ups is back and it returns with a bang! I bought 2 seasons of a DC tv show and a PS4 game.

Gotham Season 1 + 2 (blu-ray)

Season 1 of Gotham wasn’t the best; it had some strong moments but overall it felt pretty ‘meh’. But Jiminy jillikers Batman did they go all out with season 2. Everything was just bigger and better and that trend continued in season 3.

Far Cry 4 (PS4)

Far Cry 4 should have been called Far Cry 3.5 and didn’t really deserve a full €60 price tag on release. The fourth installment didn’t add a lot so that’s why I didn’t pick it up when it was released. I recently saw it for €17 as part of the Ubisoft deals and I decided that this was the right time for me to pick it up.

What’s your favorite DC tv show? Mine’s still Arrow (Season 5 has been really good) but Gotham is close on its tail!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 68!

This week wasn’t a big week for pickups; I just bought one PSN game. The following weeks might be a lot better (if some things come back in stock) so be prepared for that!

Trials of the Blood Dragon (PS4)

I’m a big fan of the Trials series so when I saw this on sale for €7 I just bought it. The level design is great but I’m not a huge fan of the changes they made in this game. I like the grappling hook but I really hate the levels on foot. They feel out of place and aren’t as good as the ones with a vehicle. But overall it’s still a fun game with some gorgeous levels and for this price it’s a must buy for any Trials fan.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 63!

I’m already feeling the Holiday spirit because I received 2 awesome gifts from a friend. I also got something to put on my ears and something to put on my shelf. Let’s see what I got!

Watch Dogs 2 (PC)

I’ve never played the first Watch Dogs and to be honest; I wasn’t going to buy this one. The game looked interesting but not interesting enough for me to pay full price. Turned out I didn’t have to pay anything to own the game thanks to an awesome friend! He bought a new graphics card and got the game with it but he already bought it so he gifted it to me! Thanks man! I’ve played Watch Dogs 2 for a couple of hours now and I really enjoy it. There’s a lot to do in the city, the hacking is fun and the multiplayer is really nice. The only thing that I don’t really like is how the cars handle but that’s not too bad in the grand scheme of things.

Logitech G430

I wanted a wireless headset but I couldn’t find one for a decent price so I opted to go with this one because I can use it on my PC and PS4. It was on sale (€64.90 instead of €72.99) which made it a pretty good deal.

Outlast (PC)

Another gift (from the same guy, I’m starting to think that he really is Santa Claus!) that I got recently for a game that I wanted to play for some time. I’m a big horror fan so this game is right up my alley.

Raditz Banpresto figure

Awhile ago I got the Bardock Banpresto figure and I loved how it looked so I decided to buy a Raditz one. This one isn’t as good ; the paint job is a bit iffy (the scouter for example) but overall I’m still quite happy with it! Fits in great with my other Saiyan fighters.
