Last 2 Months of Gaming Pickups

I bring you a new batch of gaming goodness that I’ve added to my awesome gaming collection. Check it out, won’t you?

Korg DS-10 Plus (DS) – This is not so much a game as it is a real synthesizer on a DS cart. Fun to mess around with!

Destruction Derby (PS) – A solid game for an early PlayStation release. DD keeps it nice and simple so you can enjoy those awesome-for-1995 crashes!

Skydiving Extreme (PS) – Only the greatest game ever made about skydiving! 😀

Kurohyou: Ryu ga Gotoku Shinshou & Kurohyou 2: Ryu ga Gotoku Ashura Hen (PSP) – Both of these titles are part of a spinoff series from the main Yakuza franchise from Sega. Looking forward to seeing how they are in the future.

Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi (PSP) – Hey look! A new physical PSP game for North America! Sure, it’s mediocre, but there’s hot guys everywhere! 😆

WTF: Work Time Fun (PSP) – I used to own this and now I own it again. Can’t resist that ramen timer! Flex, flex, spice, and enjoy!

Vampire Resurrection (PS3) – This is a re-release of the second and third games in the Darkstalkers series of fighters by Capcom. I have always enjoyed them, but they never achieved much popularity outside of Japan. I’m looking for some peeps to play against so let me know if you’d like to play.

Midway Arcade Origins (PS3) – A compilation of 31 Midway arcade games. Hopefully it’ll turn out to have mostly proper emulation and crisper visuals than last generation’s Midway Arcade Treasures releases.

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 (PS3) – My love for some licenses leads me, at times, make what are probably not great purchases. This is the follow-up to the first FotNS Dynasty Warriors game and I now have both, but have played neither so far. It wasn’t released physically for PS3 in North America so I found out there was an english version released for non-Japan Asia and picked it up.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND (PS3) – The changes made in Continuum Shift II really rubbed me the wrong way so I’m hoping CS Extend will set it right again. I bought the not-so-limited limited edition for pretty cheap and it came with an artbook, soundtrack, and a now outdated calendar.

Unreal II: The Awakening (XB) – It’s Epic Games trying to tell a story in the Unreal universe. How cute. I’m sure that narrative with be top-notch and the voice acting superb. What’s that? It isn’t? Shocking.

Burnout Revenge (XB) – It’s the direct follow-up to Burnout 3. What’s not to like?

Shadow Hearts: From the New World (PS2) – A JRPG series that has an intriguing looking battle system. I picked up the third one in the series because it seems to take itself less seriously than the previous entries.

OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast (PS2) – A great update of OutRun 2 from the previous year, but now also on PS2!

Rogue Trooper (PS2) – I played this a few weeks ago. A fun, solid game with a good amount of cool options to take out your enemies.

Red Faction II (PS2) – A spur of the moment purchase on the cheap. Looks solid.

Unreal Tournament (PS2) – I played this through soon after I bought it. For a launch port of UT for PS2, it’s pretty good and even has keyboard and mouse support.

Alter Echo (PS2) – Looks like a decent action/adventure.
