This past week or so I went out to Sears and found some a few games at unexpectedly good prices! I know I said last blog that I wasn’t going to get any more games for awhile, but when you come across these type of deals, you gotta go for it.
Folklore – $9.97
Timeshift – $9.97
Heavenly Sword – $14.97
TImeshift wasn’t much cheaper than can be had from almost anywhere, but Heavenly Sword and Folklore are both pricey. Heavenly Sword and Folklore are always around $50-60 (new) and usually $35 (used).
On the playing games front, because of the release of Klonoa: Door to Phantomile for Wii, I decided I’d play though the original PS1 release again. Still a completely awesome game that I really enjoy! Since I don’t have a Wii, I checked out someone’s entire playthough of the new Wii remake on YouTube and I have to say it still looks like it is almost completely identical to the PS1 version outside of the visuals. However, there are a few things that were changed from the original which seems stupid because they make the game even easier than it already was. The biggest culprit is that you get five hearts of health in the Wii remake as opposed to only three in the original. Regardless of those minor changes I wholeheartedly recommend the game no matter which version you choose, though I still prefer the original.
I also finally started playing Killzone 2. I have been having a hard time getting motivated to play it because I was involved in the multiplayer beta back in November and I think it spoiled my enthusiasm I had for the game at that time. I can say the same for Resistance 2, which is probably why I don’t own it yet. I’ll likely turn down any future invites I get to betas because of these two revelations. It is a bummer that I end up this way, but I can’t help it for some reason.
Other games I played off and on recently: Tekken, Bleach DS 2nd, Ridge Racer, Mortal Kombat II, Tetris DX.
Somehow I got sucked into playing the original Tekken and the original Ridge Racer, both of which hold up pretty well considering their age. Mortal Kombat II, on the otherhand, is way too basic of a fighter for my tastes nowadays, which is something I could say for the whole Mortal Kombat series with the exception of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
I am totally excited for E3 and am looking forward to the awesome announcements that are sure to come out of it. I’ll be twittering my thoughts on the press conferences as they happen, so if you’d like to follow me on Twitter to see those, check me out at twitter.com/usagi704!
Also, I have put up videos of my collections for a few of my game systems on my YouTube account. Check those out if you are interested. Later!
