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 77!

My collection of psychical PS4 games keeps on growing and this week I added 2 games to this ever-growing list!

Doom UAC Pack + Mafia 3 (PS4)

Both games were on my wanted list for some time and I just waited for a big price drop. I picked up Doom for €19 and Mafia 3 for €20; not a bad deal. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Doom and looking at some gameplay on Youtube I think it’s going to be right up my alley. Mafia 3 received some mixed reviews  but I still look forward playing it. It might not be as good as Mafia 2 but I’ll (hopefully) get some enjoyment from playing it!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 76!

I only bought one game this week but what a magnificent game it is!

Injustice 2: Deluxe Edition (PS4)

I’ve played the first Injustice game a lot and it was one of my favorite superhero fighting games. Injustice 2 takes everything that made the first game good and made it better; the graphics are improved, the combat system is a bit refined and they’ve added a lot of stuff to customize every character to your liking which gives the game some variety.  The story isn’t as great (in my opinion) as the first one but that has more to do with how awesome the story of the first game was.

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 74!

 This week we take a trip to Moscow after a nuclear war. Sounds lovely, doesn’t?

Metro Redux (PS4)

I’ve played the first Metro game on PC and I really liked it but I never got around finishing it. Yesterday I saw that it was on sale on PS4 so I decided to buy it. The Redux version includes both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light and they improved both games quiet a bit; better frame rate (60FPS on consoles now), all the DLC; you get the complete package.

What’s your favorite game that’s set in a post apocalyptic world/ nuclear world? Mine’s definitely Stalker; Shadow of Chernobyl.

 

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 73!

Only one purchase this week and it’s an Indie game! But there are so many Indie games so which one did I buy? Let’s find out!

Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla EX) (PC)

I played this games YEARS ago (Maldita Castilla) when it was a free download and I loved it. It reminded me a lot of Ghouls and Ghosts; one of my favorite SNES games.  I recently found out that it was on Steam so when it went on sale I didn’t think twice before picking it up. It’s a great game for anyone who’s nostalgic for the good old SNES days!
