Funny. This was a draft made way back in May, when I was playing a lot of Trails Fusion. Not as good as the previous ones (or more, not that inovation as the previous), but still a good game. Was a ton of fun to play through. And I would probably start playing it again when I move! “Anywho”, I took screenshots with my phone of some of the glitches I experienced. Nothing game breaking, just funny.
I’ve been buying a lot of games lately. Just forgot to post about it. Last was a little shopping spree I was having at my local Gamestop. They are selling out a bunch of Limited/Collectors Editions of different games. Some really good deals.
So ended up with this:
– Gears of War Epic Edition
– Dj Hero x2
– Splinter Cell Convivtion Limited Collectors Edition
– Arcania Gothic 4
– Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition
There was some more games they had that I’m tempted too buy, Continue reading Shopping spree! (with images)
Every summer plenty of developers and stores have sales, so as every summer I end up getting some new games. Even when I’m away for vacation I’ll buy games. This time I needed help from a friend to buy Magicka Complete Pack from Steam. And I’m glad I took the trouble to contact my good friend. Magicka is one of the best games I’ve played this year! If your only getting one game this year, Magicka should probably be it. So obviously I’ve played a lot of Magicka, but I haven’t tried solo play yet. Only with my friend, but it was hilarious. The first hour went to practicing the spells and not killing each other. It’s hard when you can make so much funny spells.
I also got my hands on Infamous 2 (birthday gift), which is a great sequel to Infamous. The graphic is very nice and polished. The game play is even better and you have new and more moves/action to perform. Sadly no flying mode, but where getting there. Play.com also had a sale so ended up getting Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom. A beautiful game which looks a bit like Shadow of the Colossus. The music is also very nice. It’s not a very long game. I completed it yesterday and it took my around thirteen hours, and I did some collection of chest and such. So I guess a quick run would go for around ten. Still a few hours longer then what Mirror’s Edge take to complete (around seven if I remember correctly).
That’s not all the games I got this summer. I bought Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS2) and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (DS). I thought the DS game was the one who came to the PSP, but that was Birth by Sleep. So guess I need to get that one too. I’ve always wanted to try out the Kingdom Hearts series, as I’ve heard a lot about it. So instead of starting on number two I ended up buying Kingdom Hearts (the first) from Ebay. So wanting for that to arrive in the mail. I also bought some old Xbox 360 games which where on sale. Pure which I’ve had and played before, Rainbow Six Vegas, Kinect Adventure and Guitar Hero 5. As I don’t own a Kinect myself I had to borrow one from my friend to try out Kinect Adventure. Sadly Kinect doesn’t really work that well in my living room since my couch is to big to be moved (or my room is to small, you can decide).
Rainbow Six Vegas came out in 2006 and the years haven’t been good to it, but the game play works really well. So when I’m done with it I’ll definitely buy the sequel. Pure is still cool and it still lacks the split screen which would make this game extremely fun to play. The same problem as the newer Nail’d. No split-screen really makes a game go from must have to, get when I find it real cheap.
Last but not least I bought Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and Rollercoaster Tycoon from GoodOldGames.com. Haven’t had time to try them out yet, but played both of them before so I know what I get. Rollercoaster Tycon is maybe the best Tycoon game ever made (it’s maybe even beating Transport Tycoon Deluxe).
That’s most of the game I’ve tried and bought the last couple of weeks. It’s nice with a summer vacation. I’m also waiting for Fear 2 coming in the mail. There where a sale on CDon.com and I had a coupon, so I got it for free. Can’t beat that!
Today I got some new games. Been a long time since last time. This time it was Bioshock 2 Rapture Edition for the PS3. I’m probably not going to play it, as I didn’t like the original Bioshock. So this one goes next to my Bioshock Special Edition. I also got Fuel and Dark Sector for my Xbox 360. I haven’t heard much about Dark Sector before I friend of mine said it was a great game last Sunday. So I thought, why not get a great game since it’s on sale? Hopefully I will get some time to try it out this weekend. Fuel was a game I just bought because it was really cheap. I had tried the demo before, and didn’t really like the arcade feeling. When I tried it again today, it was the same feeling. For me, it feels to easy (I know I can change the difficulty). I don’t really have to time my turns and watch out for trees and such coming at me. As long as I don’t hit them straight on. The big open area do seems like fun, but since you can’t do tricks in the air you can’t really use the big jumps you find to something fun. The career isn’t that much fun either, just the same on slightly different tracks. I did get around 100 gamescore for an hour play which is always a plus.
I also downloaded the Nail’d demo today. Looks and play a lot like Pure, but not as fun. It’s to much of an arcade game. Just full throttle all the way, and boost when you have enough nitro. Even though you only can ride ATV’s and MX’s, you can’t trick on the massive jumps. Pure is so much better. Hopefully it will support split-screen which Pure sadly lacks.
I got three packages in the mail today! How cool isn’t that! The biggest box was from a competition I won. You remember that I made a little giraffe from a Lambiz vinyl figure? Well, now I have a gigantic Lambiz sheep! It’s super awesome. Wonder what to do with it. The smallest one was also a vinyl figure. It’s called Xboy and is a new vinyl figure from Time Out.
I forgot to tell you all what I got from my girlfriend as a birthday present. A Xbox 360 S! How cool isn’t that?! There is a small story of how I ended up with that. As some may know, my birthday is the 9th. So when we got home from my cabin, I got a medium sized gift-wrapped box which I could open before next Sunday. How boring isn’t that? So I had to wait, finally night of Sunday I was allowed to open it. As I had no idea what it was, I was quiet shocked that it was two bags of 1-2-3 cake. Then she laughed and handed my another gift. I tried to shake it a bit, and I guessed that it maybe was Lego (that would be so much better then what I got). It wasn’t, it was confectionery, which is my idea of a booooring gift. Luckily this is an intern joke, so she laughed again and went to get a big present! I had no idea what is was before I opened it, and I was speechless. One of best present I’ve ever received.
Here some pictures I took of it after I put it up. It got dusty real quick. There is also some pictures of my bottle/can collection.
I played some single player today, trying to get some more achievements. This is what happened when I first tried to do the Dastardly one.
That glitch wasn’t the only one today. I suddenly went underground when I was riding in free-roam in multi player.
Bought Skate 3 today. Looking forward to get come and play it tonight.
Finally got my hands on a boxed Xbox! It’s even the cool crystal edition. Sadly it was with only one controller. I also got my hands on a sealed Super Monkey Ball, guess I’ll never get to play that. Other then that I bought component cable to my Gamecube. I’m really curious to see if there is some difference. Hopefully it is!
