Weekly pick-ups: Week 130!

Another pretty solid week for me; got some new action figures, added some games to both my PS2 and Xbox collection and so much more! Let’s jump right into it!

Black Panther and Captain America action figure

My mom found these for €2 each; pretty awesome! I didn’t have a Black Panther or Captain America figurine so they fit in nicely with the rest of my Marvel collection.

Maximo vs the Army of Zin Strategy Guide 

My love for the Maximo games has been on full display the last couple of weeks and this week I got the official guide for the second game. I bought this guide from the same guy who sold me the guide for the first game and it’s in the same, excellent, condition! It took a couple of weeks to arrived and I even thought that it wouldn’t arrive at all (the tracking code didn’t update for weeks) but in the end it was all good!

Need for Speed Underground 2 and GTA 3 (PS2)

Another find by my mom this time in a goodwill store! Games were €1.5 each and they are both complete! Well except that GTA III has the GTA Vice City disc but that isn’t that big of a deal. Just nice to have a copy that has the poster because that was missing from my Xbox version.

Call of Duty Black Ops IIII (PS4)

H1Z1 has made me love battle royale games so I just had to grab this one to play the Blackout game mode. So far it’s a ton of fun but I haven’t gotten a win yet!

Batman Dark Tomorrow and Medal of Honor European Assault (Xbox)

Got these on Gameforce for €6 and €4 respectively. I didn’t know anything about the Batman game and that’s why I picked it up; I looked up some reviews and apparently it’s pretty bad but I’ll give it a god. Medal of Honor European Assault had been on my wish list for a while so I’m happy that I can finally cross it off!

Payday 2 Dallas Mask

A friend and I had been talking about getting a mask like this for a while but we never found one that we liked (price and quality wise). So when we saw these on Gameforce we just had to buy them! I picked the Dallas mask because it’s my favorite design.

What’s a game that’s on your wish list that you really want? Let me know in the comments!


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!

Do you struggle with an enormous backlog of unfinished games? How do you fix that? Let me know in the comments!

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 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.
