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 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 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 108!

I went thrift shopping and found some nice PS2 and Xbox games (and a PS2 demo unit that I couldn’t buy 😦 ). I also got a couple of remakes for the PS4 and a guide for my favorite game of all time!

Stuntman (PS2)

I remember playing this game when I was a kid and the only thing that I thought back then was ‘Damn, this is difficult’. I look forward to playing it again to see if I got better at the game.

Titan Quest, Assassins Creed Rogue Remastered, A Way Out (PS4)

Titan Quest and A Way Out are games that I bought solely to play them in co-op with a friend. We’ve been playing a bit of ‘A Way Out’ and so far it’s fun. Assassins Creed Rogue is the only AC game that I’ve never played but people told me that it was a lot like Assassins Creed Black Flag and that’s my favorite AC game so I decided to give it a go!

GTA Vice City Guide

I’m a big fan of physical guide; I just love reading trough them even when I’m not playing the game. I never had a guide for GTA Vice City so I went on Amazon and found one in pretty good condition for €10. Great deal if you ask me.

Project Gotham Racing 2 and SSX On Tour (Xbox)

PGR is my favorite racing franchise on the Xbox (Yes, I prefer PGR over Forza) and I’m really sad that they don’t make a new one but I can now at least relive the greatness that is PGR2. SSX On Tour isn’t a great SSX game but it’s still fun and it was cheap so why not?

What’s your take on the remake/remastered culture? Do you like that they remake some of the older gems or do you think that it’s just a quick cash grab? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 107!

This week I got some awesome figurines and I added a bunch of games to my Xbox collection!

Dead Island Definitive Edition: Slaughter Pack (PS4) (not pictured)

As a horror movie/game guy I just couldn’t pass this one up. Great games and some really nice extra’s for a budget price. If you want to see an unboxing for it; https://wp.me/p6lqKe-e0

Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, Knight of the Temple Infernal Crusade, Obscure, Soldier of Fortune II, Batman Begins, Cold Fear and XIII (Xbox)

All of these games were cheap (around €5 each) and that’s the reason why I got them. I really want to play XIII but I don’t want to open it up (it’s still factory sealed). I might just go out and buy another copy because that’s an amazing game!

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collectors Edition

The game isn’t that great (it’s OK but pretty disappointing if you’re a fan of the series) but the collectors edition is something else. You get four amazing figurines; Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Chun-Li and Mega Man and you also get a box (that lights up) with the Infinity stones!

What do you guys think about collecting factory sealed stuff? Stupid (because you can’t play it) or smart (because the value may increase)? Let me know in the comments!
