Game Pickups Week 4 June/Week 1 July 2016

Okay so I was a bit lazy last weekend.. I had some other stuff to catch up on, but that did not stop me from buying games! I'm going to combine the last 2 weeks in to one post, which is kinda hectic because they were such big weeks because of.. something cool.. I'll explain more later!

Game Pickups Week 2 June 2016

Okay, a pretty standard week of pick ups this week. Mostly bargains and nothing amazingly special (yet). I left the price tags on most of these because I watched an interesting collection video and the guy said he leaves all the price tags on because they tell a cool story about the game and how it was obtained. I thought that was cool.. I think i'll peel them off still, but left them on for the photo at least. First image is a bunch of assorted random games and a really unique Nintendo DS internet browser. This allows you to use Opera browser on a DS to browse the internet.

Game Pickups Week 1 June 2016

Okay so I know I said last time that it was a bit of an unusual week that I scored so many great things, but it seems this week has been just as crazy! Maybe it's to do with the economy or something, I don't know! But what I do know is that I've had some amazing pick ups this week.

Game Pickups Week 3 May 2016

So for around two years now I've created a bit of a habit of collecting video games. It started as filling a few holes in my collection like replacing a missing copy of Final Fantasy 12, then turned in to completing full series of games and has now gotten a bit out of control. I don't mind, I have amazing fun doing it and it doesn't cost me very much (if any) because often I pick up a few games I already have in bundles and end up flipping those games for a profit or paying for the rest of the bundle.

Pokemon Yellow Nuzlocke Challenge Part 1

So a little while back, Nintendo re-released the original Pokemon games for digital download. Nostalgic me wanted to play through these games again, but challenge-loving me wanted to do it hard mode. Because somehow I forgot that these games were actually already considerably hard without adding the Nuzlocke rules to them! If you don't know what those rules are, you can check out this article on Bulbapedia.

Board Game Review - Walking Dead

Almost a year since any new posts on this website? What's going on? Well, i'll get to that in another post, but for a short answer - i've not been gaming anywhere near as much as I used to. Instead I've been playing a lot of board games lately! I've been meaning to come back and write some new content and I thought, what better way than with a board game review!

Harsh Review - 8-Bit Boy

The more I played this game, the more it felt like Wonderboy. But that's not exactly a compliment. What I mean is, the controls are a bit clunky for a platformer, but once you get used to them the game is not half bad, considering I got it for $0.16 in those Steam auctions. I decided to finish it and review it anyway.

Duels of the Planeswalkers - Battle Mastery Achievement

Lately I have had this little obsession over 100% finishing every game, including getting every achievement. One that frustrated me a little was "Battle Mastery" from Magic 2015, until I found a nice way of getting it. So I thought I'd share it.

Harsh Review - Game of Thrones Episode 2

My favourite story driven graphic glitch-fest of a game is back with a new episode. This time with a bonus round of crappy crossbow shooting! Ok, so that was extremely harsh. A lot of things in this game actually did impress me. I will try to review it the best I can without spoiling the story.
