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.

Street Fighter II is back

If there is one fighting game that I have a soft spot for it's definitely Street Fighter II, I think it was my first game that I had in the genre way back when Super Nintendo was still alive and kicking. I will not say that I'm a pro at it but I always enjoy playing it a lot. So for me this release on Switch under the name Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was really a must buy, I'm pretty sure I'll sink quite some hours into this one!

Two more soundtracks and wow... Look, a game!

Two more soundtracks on vinyl arrived today, one that I pre-ordered some time ago and another of which I just bought the game on Switch. The pre-ordered one is The Last Guardian, a great game with an amazing soundtrack. The art on this record is beautiful too! The other one is from Thumper, a game I recently discovered on the Switch. It's an amazing (and difficult) game with a great soundtrack. And look at that, I even bought a new physical game! I got myself Injustice 2 on PlayStation 4, didn't play the first one but I liked what I saw from the second one.

Let's put a smile on that goonie

It's actually been over two months since I got something physical for a game that wasn't a soundtrack... I got two new LEGO Dimensions packs, the new Goonies Level Pack that was released recently and also the Joker and Harley Quinn Team Pack. Harley Quinn is my favorite DC Comics character so I had to have her for the game at one point, Joker is a nice extra for me! I haven't played the Goonies level yet but I will do so this evening or tomorrow.

Once again soundtracks

Once again I didn't buy any new physical copies of games. I did get two new digital ones however, both for Switch. Those are Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. Wonder Boy is an amazing remake of probably my favorite retro game and Shovel Knight remains a joy to play. Besides these digital games I did get two new soundtracks, one on vinyl and one on CD. The vinyl is from Yooka-Laylee, a game I don't have yet but will have as soon as the Switch version becomes available. But the music is by David Wise and Grant Kirkhope so I couldn't go wrong there. The other one on CD is from NieR: Automata, I'm still playing the game, I'm in my third playthrough right now and it remains a fantastic game by PlatinumGames. The music is amazing in this one.

...And more music!

And for the second part it are two vinyl records that I received last week. I still have to listen to these but I'll do that today. The first one is the last from Data Discs which contains the soundtracks to both Galaxy Force II and Thunder Blade. I haven't played these games and have no intention to do so either but I really like the Data Discs collection so I bought it to complete that one. The second is the last release from Mondo which is Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. This record also includes the soundtracks from both the NES and the Famicom version of the game which is great. Normally I really like the cover art from Mondo's releases too but this one not so much actually.

Music, music,...

The last couple of weeks I received some new soundtracks, most of them are on vinyl and also one on CD. I'll have to split these up in two posts because I couldn't possibly fit those vinyl records in one picture. The first one contains also the soundtracks I received first, these are Snatcher on vinyl and the 30th Anniversary Legend of Zelda Game Music Selection on CD. Snatcher sounds really good, I have never played the game but the music is great. Zelda is also a very nice collection of songs from the series.

Musical amiibo

Lately I've mainly been playing on my Nintendo Switch, I absolutely love the system and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! It came to that point that I actually have no need to start up another system. Also looking forward to many announced titles for it. But besides all that I did get some new things this week. I got two amiibo from Breath of the Wild, the Bokoblin and Link on his horse. They look really cool! I also got the soundtrack from Gravity Rush 2 on CD, I really loved that game too and the music is amazing just like in the first one. And finally I also got the soundtrack from Contra III: The Alien Wars on vinyl, this one arrived today actually. It's playing right now and it sounds really good. The artwork is amazing too.

Time to switch it up

Finally it's here, Nintendo's new console! I placed my pre-order back in January after they made their presentation for the Switch because I really liked what I saw there. Yesterday was the big day, my bundle of Switch stuff arrived with the mail. First of all there's the console itself naturally, it was really quick and easy to set it up and be able to play. I love the interface, very clean and slick. The screen in handheld mode is also amazing looking. Besides the console I also bought a Pro Controller, I've been using it for a good couple of hours yesterday and I gotta say it's one of the best controllers I've held in my hands together with the Xbox One controller. And last but certainly not least I also got the Limited Edition of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This box is huge! I really didn't expect it to be so big. I've been playing the game for a while already and I love it. Such a good time from the get go and this is just the beginning.

Fantastic bricks and where to build them

It was time for some new content for my LEGO Dimensions collection, I still play the game regularly and really enjoy it everytime I roam around in one of the many worlds. I still had a gift card lying around for a shop that sells games and yesterday I used it to buy the story pack from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for LEGO Dimensions. I already started the story and it's very fun so far like most LEGO games. I really enjoyed the movie too, I only buy stuff for this game from franchises that I actually like.
