Weekly pick-ups: Week 105!

Another big week for pick ups! I got some sweet collectors editions and a brand new controller!

Kingdom Come Deliverance Collectors Edition (PS4)

A great collectors edition for a very good price. If you want to see everything that’s in it, check out my unboxing video here; https://wp.me/p6lqKe-dO

Dynasty Warriors 9 + Steelcase and Carmageddon Max Damage (PS4)

The first open world Dynasty Warriors game! The steelcase was a pre-order extra; great if you love that kind of stuff (and I do love a good steelcase). Carmageddon was cheap and I just wanted to see how it’s like.

Shadow of the Colossus + Valus Statue (PS4)

According to critics, this is the best remaster ever. I still haven’t played it but I have shown the Valus statue in detail on video; check that out right here https://wp.me/p6lqKe-dQ

Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Controller (Xbox One)

A fantastic looking controller for the Xbox One. The skull logo actually lights up in the dark but I’ll probably never see it because I’m not planning on actually using the controller.

Call of Duty Valor Collection

This statue originally retailed at €150 here in Belgium. I liked the look of it but I didn’t want to pay that much. A few days ago however I saw it on Amazon for around €50 which is a much better price so I picked it up. It looks great and it gets a spot in my Call of Duty WWII Collection!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 103!

I buy too many games! This week I added a bunch of games to both my PS4 and Xbox One collection!

Overwatch GOTY, Axiom Verge Multiverse Edition, Dark Souls III Apocalypse Edition, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Monster Hunter World, Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy, Resident Evil 5 and Earth Defense Force 4.1 (PS4)

Some of them were pre-orders of games that I really wanted on day one (Dragon Ball, Axiom Verge and Monster Hunter). The rest I got because I found them for cheap or because I liked the special edition aspect of them. Now I just need to find the time to play them all …

Dishonored 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, State of Decay Year One Edition, Batman Arkham Knight, Killer Instinct Combo Breaker pack and Ryse Son of Rome (Xbox One)

These games were all pretty cheap and were on my ‘wanted’ list for a while. I already completed Arkham Knight on the PS4 (I own the CE) but I happily complete it a second time. Same story with Ryse; completed it on PC but I happily fight my way through hordes of enemies once again!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 102!

Another week, another huge haul of games!

Fable Anniversary, Fable II and Borderlands Triple Pack (Xbox 360)

I really wanted to play the Fable games again and the good thing about the Fable games is that they are backwards compatible with the Xbox One. Fable Anniversary was pretty expensive but I didn’t really mind. Borderlands Triple Pack is a weird one for me; I never really enjoyed a Borderlands game but for the low price of €8 I was willing to give them another go.

Deux EX Mankind Divided, Assassins Creed Unity, Evil Within 2 (PS4)

Yes, I know that you can currently get Deux EX for free with Playstation Plus; I completely forgot about it. Unity completes my Assassins Creed collection (well, I still need the chronicles collection but I’ll find those eventually) and Evil Within 2 was just really cheap so why not? I’m a big horror movie/game guy so this game must be right up my alley.

The Elders Scrolls Online (Xbox One)

The game was really cheap and that’s the only reason that I got it. I’ll definitely play it but I doubt that I’ll actually enjoy it. I’m just not a big fan of the newer Elder Scrolls games (I loved Morrowind but after that I just couldn’t get into Elder Scrolls games).

Enslaved and Little Big Planet (PS3)

Two games to add to the PS3 collection; Enslaved looked cool and interesting and Little Big Planet is a must have for any Playstation owner.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 100!

Time for a party! For this 100th blog entry I got some sweet PS3 and Xbox One games and 1 pretty big pluche!

GTA IV, GTA Episodes of Liberty City, Army of Two 40th Day, Warriors Orochi 3 and Dynasty Warriors Strike force (PS3)

I wasn’t a big fan of GTA IV when I first played it but I decided to give it a second chance and I also got the two big DLC packs for it. The three other games were a bundle; get 3, pay 2.

Stardew Valley Collectors Edition and Rayman Legends (Xbox One)

Normally I only buy Xbox One exclusives but I made an exception for these two games. Stardew Valley looks to be a lot of fun (and a bit of a time eater) and I just love Rayman Legends; the game is so beautiful and fun to play!

Junimo pluche

Got it for €12 for no particular reason. It just looks cool.

Medal of Honor Rising Sun (Xbox)

A great entry in the, now dead, Medal of Honor franchise. Got it for €2 in a second hand shop.

Master Roshi coin bank

I’m a big Dragon Ball fan and I found this great looking coin bank for €12 and I just couldn’t resist it. Fits in nicely with the rest of my Dragon Ball figurines!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 95!

The madness continues with another HUGE haul!

Lord of the Rings: Third Age (Xbox)

Last week I got the game for the PS2 but that disc was damaged so it didn’t work. So I went on eBay and found myself a copy of the game for the original Xbox. The game is complete and in very good condition and most importantly; it works.

Call of Duty WWII Limited Edition Crate, Call of Duty WWII Guide and Call of Duty WWII (PS4)

Yes, I’m a fan of the latest title in the Call of Duty franchise. The single player is awesome and the multiplayer, even with the current flaws, is still fun to play. I already did an unboxing for the limited edition crate; you can find the video a bit further down on my blog. And then finally I bought the guide. I’m a sucker for physical  guides and this one is really high quality (hardcover for the win!). I mostly use it for zombies but it still fun to read when I have a couple of minutes to spare.

Need for Speed Payback (PS4)

I can be pretty brief on this one; I haven’t played it yet and the reviews don’t seem all that amazing. I got it because the trailers looked promising and I wanted an ‘easy’ racing game to play when I’m not playing FIFA/Call of Duty. I’ll let you guys know what I think of it when I find some time to play it.

Assassins Creed 3: Join or Die Edition (PS3)

It was cheap and it’s complete; so why not? I’ve played a fair bit of this game but I never managed to complete it. I might give it another go when I find some time for it (which won’t be in the next few weeks).

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 70!

This week we get a visit from both Lego Batman and the Punisher!

Lego Batman: Joker Balloon Escape

I haven’t seen the Lego Batman movie (yet) but this Lego set was just too cool to not pick up. I might pick up more of the Lego Batman sets in the near future because they are freaking awesome!

The Punisher (Xbox)

The Punisher is an underrated action game based on The Punisher comics and the 2004 Punisher movie (very loosely based). The game is very violent (mostly because of the executions) and the story is pretty cool. It has a lot of resemblance with how we saw the Punisher in Daredevil; gritty and no-nonsense.

 

What’s your favorite superhero game of all time? Mine’s probably Arkham City but I also really enjoyed Spider-Man 2 and Marvel vs Capcom 2.
