And now for some games
After all the updates with game soundtracks on vinyl it's finally time to show some new games as well! I got a birthday gift from a very good friend which included two games and a very nice Funko Pop figurine. I got Until Dawn on PlayStation 4 and Rodea the Sky Soldier on Wii U, two games that I already wanted to have actually. The Funko Pop figurine is Dogmeat from Fallout 4, I've always been on the lookout for this one but haven't been able to find one so I'm very happy to have him sit on my PC desk now. If you are reading this, thanks again for the great gifts! I also bought something myself today, I got the Knight Rider Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions. This one includes Michael Knight and of course K.I.T.T. It's so amazing how they keep on adding those franchises from the old days, I love those.
The return of Data Discs
More game soundtracks on vinyl? Well yes, of course! The latest releases from Data Discs have arrived today, this time they are the soundtracks to The Revenge of Shinobi and Panzer Dragoon. I haven't listened to them yet but I'm sure they'll be great quality again. I'm especially happy that they released Panzer Dragoon, I love that game and the soundtrack is really amazing.
All your vinyl are belong to us
No I did not get a vinyl record from the soundtrack to Zero Wing but it does seem that they are beginning to overtake this page quite a lot lately. Two new records have arrived today! The first one is Final Symphony, these are symphonic songs of Final Fantasy VI, VII and X. It's a big one too, three vinyl records to be precise. The other one is the soundtrack of Trials of the Blood Dragon. I haven't played the game yet but I loved Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and its soundtrack, this one is by the same artist named Power Glove and it sounds just as amazing as the Far Cry one. I know what I'll listen to in the next few days!
What a horrible night to have a curse
Like the previous two soundtracks on vinyl weren't enough. I just received another one! This time it's the soundtrack to the NES game Castlevania II: Simon's Quest that arrived on vinyl, this one is from Mondo. I also have the first one and that quality was actually really good. I just listened to this vinyl and it's also very good, I really like that they included both the NES and the Famicom versions of the soundtrack. The artwork on it is amazing as well!
More vinyl incoming
Shovel Knight alone wasn't enough for video game soundtracks on vinyl this week apparently because another one has arrived today. This time it's quite a heavy box including the Street Fighter II soundtrack! I missed out on this one the first time it was released but I'm happy I could pick this one up of the second print runs. It contains four vinyl records with both the arcade versions included. This means that both the CPS-1 and CPS-2 versions are on these records. It has an amazing package and booklet and is from the same company that released Shovel Knight on vinyl, they put out amazing quality!
Shoveling on vinyl
A new soundtrack on vinyl has arrived today, it's one that I pre-ordered quite some time ago and I'm very happy it's finally released. It's none other than Shovel Knight, a game that I enjoyed a lot! The music is fantastic as well, so I didn't hesitate a moment when you could pre-order this vinyl. I listened to it already and it's amazing quality, not a single crackle or pop to hear on it.
A challenge has appeared
Yesterday I received a gift from my brother, it's a game he really likes and that I was only quite interested in when I watched him play it. It's Bloodborne, the Game of the Year Edition! I did play the first Dark Souls on PC and while I liked it I never completed it, it was a bit too slow for me. But Bloodborne looked a lot faster so I'm more interested in that one. I won't be playing it in the immediate future though, I'm currently playing three other games and in March the Switch gets released too.
A huge RPG arrived
I've beaten Pokémon Sun on Nintendo 3DS some time ago so it was time to dive into a new RPG and with the release of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King on Nintendo 3DS I knew which one it was going to be. I played the PlayStation 2 version a lot but never have beaten it, I do think I was in the last part of the game though. I really want to beat the game this time around and I'm curious for the new stuff too, I already loved the original version.
Shifting gravity once more
Gravity Rush was my favorite game for the PlayStation Vita and I really enjoyed playing through it again on the PlayStation 4 with the remaster so it makes sense that I was really looking forward to the sequel too. Finally it was released yesterday and of course I have played it already. It plays great again, can't wait to dive into it more! It looks really good too, I'm very happy with the game so far.
The return of a cult classic
Let me begin by saying that I really like the original Wild Guns on the Super Nintendo, it's an amazing game and quite original for it's time too. I guess you can imagine already how excited I was when they announced Wild Guns Reloaded for the PlayStation 4, I was even more excited when they announced the physical edition of the game. I received my copy yesterday and already played it for a while, it's still amazing and the updates are very good! I believe it's harder then the original too or it's just me who's rusty at the game.
Guilty Gear on vinyl... Rock on!
The first new gaming related item I got this year is a soundtrack on vinyl bundled with an artbook. This time around I received the soundtrack to Guilty Gear Xrd together with an artbook of that same game. I don't even have the game (yet) but if there is something that is always great in these games it's the music, always good electric guitars and that is something I can really appreciate.
Not-so-secret Santa also came by
My package from Secret Santa wasn't the only thing I opened up for Christmas, yesterday evening I also received some gifts from family members. I got three new LEGO Dimensions sets, those are The Simpsons Level Pack, the Midway Arcade Level Pack and the Unikitty Fun Pack. I also got two new PlayStation 4 games, those are Ratchet & Clank and Godzilla. I'll really need to make a lot of time to play all of this... Luckily it's vacation at my work right now so I'll be gaming quite a bit.
