A little Conan

Yesterday a new game for my Switch arrived with the mail, it's the retail version of Tiny Barbarian DX. I became interested in this game mainly because of the amazing art on the box. This art was made by Susumu Matsuhita, he is very well known in Japan for his art in the Famitsu magazine and also for some other games such as Adventure Island. This kind of art is very nostalgic for me, it reminds me of some games that I played a lot in my childhood on the Sega Master System. The game looks really cool too, I can't wait to try it out later today.

Animals with attitude

The 90's were quite famous for their animal mascots with attitude and lately I received two items that have to do with two such mascots. Last week I went to pick up my Crash Bandicoot figurine that is made by First 4 Figures. It's a great looking figure for a very decent price, also larger than I expected it to be. Today another item arrived, this time it was the soundtrack from Sonic Mania on vinyl. Sonic Mania is an amazing new Sonic game with great music so I couldn't let this one slip by. I didn't have the time yet to listen to it but I will definitely do this tomorrow. It's by Data Discs so I'm quite sure it will be great quality again.

A bit of after summer fun with Senran Kagura

I know I said that I won't be buying physical PlayStation 4 games anymore but this will be one of those very rare exceptions to that. I already placed my pre-order before I had the problems with my disc drive and I also didn't want to cancel it. Yesterday I received Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, it's the Girls of Paradise Collector's Edition that also includes the soundtrack CD, an artbook and a Blu-ray. I played the game for a bit already and it's quite fun so far, it's different from the other Senran Kagura games this time around. So far I had no problems with my disc drive, fingers crossed that it will stay this way while I'm playing the game.

The return of Samus is finally upon us

It's been a while since the last update but I finally took some time to take a picture of the latest purchases. But first of all I will go over a digital purchase, that is Yakuza Kiwami for PlayStation 4. I bought the game when it was released and I'm still enjoying it a lot, this is my first time playing a Yakuza game and I'm sold. I love the story, the gameplay, everything about it! I also got myself two new amiibo recently, those are Cloud Strife and Bayonetta. I'm glad I found these two since they are protagonists from two games that are among my favorites. Now I only need to find that other version of Bayonetta... And finally friday was the time for the return of Metroid! Metroid: Samus Returns was released for Nintendo 3DS and I bought the Legacy Edition of the game. I've been playing it for a good couple of hours already and it's amazing. Plays very good, looks great with the 3D effect and the sound is good too. I'm so glad Metroid is finally back.

Some portable PlayStation titles

I don't buy that many physical games anymore but today I brought home two new ones, both are PlayStation Portable titles. I really like the PSP system and I want to play a bit more on it too. I bought Ridge Racer and Final Fantasy II today. Ridge Racer is a game that I played on the PSP of a friend a long time ago and I really enjoyed that game. Final Fantasy II, well it's Final Fantasy and I haven't played this one yet so that was reason enough for me to get it.

Behold, a retro game! And digital on PlayStation 4

It's been quite some time since I last bought a retro game but yesterday I stumbled upon a PlayStation game that always had my interest but I never came across it before. It's Lomax, a 2D platformer which is actually a Lemmings game. I decided to pick it up because this is one of those games that I wanted to have for quite some time now. I was also quite surprised by the prices they sell it for online, luckily I didn't pay that much for it. I also want to say that you probably won't be seeing anymore physical PlayStation 4 games here. I decided to go fully digital on the console for a couple of reasons, the main one being my disc drive that is randomly ejecting discs and I don't want to buy a new console. It's also very convenient to have the games digitally. This way I bought Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age and I'm playing that one right now, it's a great game and it's my first time playing this one.

Time to splat some inklings

The first Splatoon was a really nice surprise for me on the Wii U, initially I wasn't really interested in it but after seeing more and more about the game I wanted to try it out and ended up having a blast with it. Now Splatoon 2 has arrived on the Switch and I can't wait to dive into this one this evening! I also ordered a case for my Switch with a Splatoon theme, really like that one too. I don't use it that much in handheld mode but ocassionally I want to take it with me.

A blast from the past

Finally he's back, folks! Crash Bandicoot made his long awaited return yesterday on the PlayStation 4 with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the first three games in the franchise completely remade. This was a long awaited game for me, I love the first Crash games and this trilogy really does them great justice. It looks absolutely amazing too.

Gunning the vinyl

Data Discs was at it again with a new Sega soundtrack release on vinyl, this time they put out Gunstar Heroes and I received my copy yesterday. I never played the game but I think about doing that through the Sega Classics Collection on Steam. But I know Data Discs always releases quality and I want their complete collection too.

Exploring caves for the first time

Cave Story is a game that I heard a lot about but I actually never got around to play the game before. Yesterday I received a package which contains Cave Story+ for the Switch. I know I can play this game for a lot cheaper but I really like to play games on my Switch and the package for it is just gorgeous. It also comes with a soundtrack CD so that's a nice bonus for me. I'll finally play this game for the first time today!

Back to the 3DS

I needed a bigger game to play among the smaller titles that I'm playing right now and for that I looked at the Nintendo 3DS and its Fire Emblem games. I really liked the first western one on Game Boy Advance but I never played a lot of the other ones on Game Boy Advance and GameCube. I decided to dive back into the franchise with Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. I've played it for a while already and I'm really liking it so far, it looks great on the 3DS too.

Let's create life

I'm still having a ton of fun with Injustice 2 on PlayStation 4 and I also play the occasional online matches in Ultimate Street Fighter II on Switch. But I wanted to have another game besides these fighters to spend some time in until the next game releases that I want. I tried the demo for Birthday the Beginnings yesterday and really enjoyed that one so my mind was set on getting the game. I ordered it and it arrived today with the mail. Really looking forward to start this game tomorrow.
