Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 86!

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!

What’s a game that you used to play on a demo disc but you never actually purchased? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 84!

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.

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).

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 83!

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.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 53!

I love collector’s editions but the big problem is that I don’t always have the money to buy all of the collector’s editions that I want. Thank God that some of them aren’t popular (mostly because the game is rubbish) and that they get put in the budget bin.

Homefront: The Revolution – Goliath Edition (PS4)

The game itself is pretty mediocre but I liked this collector’s edition for one reason; the RC Goliath that came with it. The original retail price was €129 but I only paid a fraction of that. The Goliath edition also comes with the obligatory art book, a steelcase and some DLC. I don’t really care about the other things because the RC is a lot of fun to screw around with. The built quality isn’t top notch (the remote feels like it could break any second) but for the price that I paid for it I can’t complain.

Xbox One Controller

I needed a controller to game on PC and I decided to go with the wired Xbox One controller. I could have waited for the S controller to come back in stock but this one does the job just fine.

What’s your favorite controller of all time? Let me know in the comments!

Bonus: Here’s a short video of me messing around with the Goliath RC. I crashed it so hard that the battery came loose; that’s why it stops working at the end of the video (it still works).

Battlefield 1 gets an exclusive collectors edition!

The release trailer of Battlefield 1 is the most liked trailer of all time and that is a good indication of how excited people are for this game. And like every major game release these days, Battlefield 1 will have a collectors edition. Let’s see what’s inside!

This edition will include:

  • Cloth Propaganda Poster
  • Messenger Pigeon Tube With “DLC” Code Inside
  • Steel Case For Game
  • 14″ Statue Of Cover Character
  • Deck of BF1 Playing Cards

The price for all of this will be around 220 US dollars which I feel is a bit much. The figurine looks good but I don’t feel like it totally justifies the price. The rest of the items are pretty OK (if they are high quality) but I still feel like this is priced just too high. A price around 150 US dollars would have been much better in my opinion. I’m not going to buy this one at its release but when I find one for a decent price (new or used) I might consider buying it.

What do you guys think about this collectors edition? Let me know in the comments!

Friday the 13th (the game) Official Announcement Trailer

The game currently has a Kickstarter campaign that has been backed 724 times for a total amount of 48,419 dollars (as of writing this blogpost). That’s a lot of money considering that the campaign launched today. The developers are hoping to collect 700 000 dollars; which seems reasonable. Are you interested in this game and are you willing to put some money towards it ? Or are you just going to wait until the full game releases and try it then ? Let me know in the comments!
