Weekly pick-ups: Week 129!

Two comics and two games: perfectly balanced as all things should be!

Batman: Gotham by Gaslight and Wolfenstein: The Deep!

I’ve seen the animated version of Gotham by Gaslight and I very much enjoyed it so I decided to buy the comic it was based on. I don’t know anything about the Wolfenstein comic but I love Wolfenstein so I thought: why not?

Forza Horizon 4 (Xbox One) 

I prefer the Horizon games over the normal Motorsport games because they are more fun and this entry is the best one yet! Everything just works a lot better (and quicker) than in Forza Horizon 3.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III (PC)

The game has a co-op mode and it was just €5 so yeah; I’ll ignore the bad reviews for that.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 127!

The last couple of weeks were pretty crazy: I got a new PS4, bought a bunch of figures and games; complete madness. The madness is over and we’re back with a more normal week. Couple of games and a figurine: not too bad.

Valkyria Revolution (Xbox One)

Found it in the budget bin for €5 and decided to grab it. I then realized it was the ‘bad’ Valkyria game but ey: I’ll give it a shot!

Forza Motorsport (Xbox)

Bit of a surprise that I didn’t own this one. I love the Forza series (both the motorsport and Horizon) and this one started it all. It’s still a great game today and I picked it up for €3.5 from a thrift store!

Maximo Captain Cadaver Figurine

The set is almost complete! Found this one on eBay (in Italy) for around €10 including shipping: pretty good deal. Now I only need ‘Bokor La Bas’ but I haven’t managed to track that one down.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 121!

I set a challenge for myself: I could only buy a new game when I finished one that has been setting in my backlog for a while. A couple of days ago I finished “South Park: The Fractured But Whole” (great game, check it out if you haven’t) so that meant that I could buy a new game! So guess what I did?

Lock’s Quest (Xbox One)

I don’t know a single thing about this game but the description on the back looked interesting and it was only €5 so why not?

Slain (PS4)

Yes, I know. I finished one game but I bought two of them; that wasn’t really the plan but I couldn’t pass this one up. It reminded me a lot of Castlevania Symphony Of The Night and that’s one of my favorite PS1 games so I decided to go for it. It’s tough but I like a good challenge!

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 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.
