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 !

This week I added a bunch of games to my ever growing Playstation collection!
Dynasty Warriors 4 and Dynasty Warriors 4 Empires (PS2)
I’m on a quest to complete my Dynasty Warriors collection and these two fit right in. I’m a big fan of the series because these games are really easy to pick up and play.
NBA 2K12 and NBA Street Homecourt (PS3)
I know what you’re thinking; why would anybody buy old sport games? Well because I’m a basketball fan and I love playing the older basketball games (it’s fun to go back and look at the ratings of certain players). It also helps that these games are never really that expensive so they are very easy to collect.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and NBA 2K18 (PS4)
NBA 2K18 is a bit of a disappointment for me; the game itself is great and fun to play but I hate how everything is now (even more so than previous iterations) based around VC. You get so little VC for playing that you’re forced to buy them to actually progress in the game. That’s a real shame because I never really spent money on a NBA 2K game before (mostly because I only play MyPlayer). Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a fun fighting game but it’s nothing special. The overall presentation isn’t great and it’s a real shame that there aren’t any X-Men characters on the roster. It’s still fun to play but there are better fighting games available at the time (Injustice 2 and Tekken 7 for example).

I only got one game this week because the next couple of weeks will be very expensive for me (I pre-ordered so many games!). Let’s see what that mystery game is!
Destiny 2 (PS4)
I only played the beta of Destiny and after that I never really bothered with it. The release of the second game didn’t really change my feelings towards the game until I started playing it. I really enjoy the combat and the way the game looks and feels. Diehard fans might be a bit disappointed with this game but as far as I’m concerned it’s a great!
Which games are you guys going to be in the next couple of weeks/months ? Let me know in the comments!
This week I got a couple of new games for my PS2, PS4 and Xbox One and I also got my first Amiibo !
Shovel Knight Amiibo
I’m a big fan of Shovel Knight and I wanted a collectible for my figurine collection so I got the Amiibo (because that’s basically the only option right now). It looks really good and it will get a special place on my figurine shelf.
Sunset Overdrive Day One Edition (Xbox One)
My quest for a complete set of Xbox One exclusive games continues with the addition of Sunset Overdrive. The game is pretty unique and so far I’m really enjoying it.
Downhill Domination (PS2)
I remember playing this game on a demo disc that came with the official PS2 magazine back in the day and I loved it. So I was really excited when I found the complete version for a very good price. The game is complete and in very good condition which is always a big plus!
Deus EX Mankind Divided Steelcase
I didn’t buy this; I got it for free at my job. Nice little collectible to have!
Yakuza Kiwami Steelbook Edition (PS4)
I’ve never played a Yakuza game but I figured that this was a good place to start. It comes in a really cool steelcase which is something I as a collector really appreciate. I haven’t had the time to play it but I look forward to it!

Disclaimer; Weekly pick ups has been moved to Sunday because of my job!
This week features the biggest haul ever; I bought a ‘new’ console, some games and a couple of new figurines!
Gears Of War 12017 Marcus Fenix Action Figure + Gears of War 3 3/4 Inch Marcus Scale Figure
I’m currently playing through the Gears of War games again and I really wanted a GOW figure. I found these two of Marcus Fenix on Amazon for a decent price. I’m probably going to display the bigger one and keep the smaller Neca one in the package.
Call of Duty, Call of Duty United Offensive, Shovel Knight and Rally Authentic Simulation Big Box
Normally I prefer my PC games to be digital (because of the lack of re-sel value) but when they are this cheap I just can’t resist. I got Call of Duty and the expansion for €1 each at a thrift store. I found the big box at the same thrift store for €0.75 and Shovel Knight I got for €0.80. A really good deal for these games if you ask me. I already owned Shovel Knight on the PS4 but the game is just too good to pass up.
PS2 (2 controllers and 2 memory cards were included) + Carry Case + SSX Tricky + 50 Cent Bulletproof + Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2
Initially the plan was to buy a controller and a video cable for my PS One so that I could play on it. But then I found a PS2 + Carry Case + 2 controllers + SSX Tricky + 2 memory cards + Network Adapter (with all the discs/information) for €33 including shipping. I bought it because now I can play my PS1 games on my PS2 and I can buy some of my all time favorite PS2 games. I then went to a thrift store and found 50 cent Bulletproof and Smash Court tennis for €3.50 each. I’m not going to go too crazy with the PS2 games but I’ll look around to find games that I enjoyed as a kid.
What’s the best thing you ever got from a thrift store? Let me know in the comments!
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.
What’s your favorite horror movie/horror movie franchise? Let me know in the comments!
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).
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.
