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!

Weekly pick-ups: Week 106!

Microsoft dominates this weeks edition of ‘Weekly pick ups’! I get games for three different Microsoft systems and a PS4 game manages to sneak in to make a last minute appearance! 

Rad Rodgers (Xbox One)

I got this one because it was very cheap (€20) on release and so far it has been exactly what I thought it would be; a budget platform game. It’s nothing special but it’s definitely fun and the low price makes it an easy pick up.

Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo Elements of Power and Fable III (Xbox 360).

These three were pretty high on my ‘wanted’ list and I found them all for a very good price (Perfect Dark was €2 and Kameo and Fable III were around €7 each). Can’t wait to play some deathmatch games against bots on Perfect Dark!

Brute Force, Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee, Unreal II and Need for Speed Underground (Xbox)

Found these in a thrift store for €3/€4 each. I haven’t played any of them (well, I did play Need for Speed Underground but who hasn’t?) but I look forward to checking them out.

Kromaia Omega (PS4)

I’m a bit of a sucker for shoot em up games (Ikaruga, R-Type, …) so I got this to feed my shoot em up needs. The game isn’t exactly what I thought it would be but it isn’t bad. You might want to check out some YouTube video’s before buying it though.

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!
