Sunday Roundup: 11/30/14

I’m a bit late posting this week’s roundup, but here it is! As for a Black Friday weekend Roundup, this wasn’t too great. But still, a trio of excellent games nonetheless!

Disney Infinity 2.0 Starter PackDisney Infinity 2.0
Wii U
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Purchased at: Target (Sunnyvale, CA – $35)

I honestly couldn’t pass up this chance to grab Disney Infinity on Wii U for so cheap,. Actually, it was on sale for every system at that price, but for some reason or another I was leaning toward the Wii U as my go to system for this one. Perhaps it was the Miiverse posts about the game that steered me the way of Nintendo. Either way, it’s sitting here in my apartment taunting me to open it up and play/waste more money on other toys. Sadly, this now completes the tri-fecta of NFC toys and games: I have Skylanders, Disney Infinity, and Nintendo’s Amiibos. *Sigh*

 Mega Man ZX CoverMega Man ZX
DS
Release Date: September 12th, 2006
Purchased at: Target (Sunnyvale, CA -$8)

Again, another price I couldn’t pass up. This one was the only worthwhile game in the “All Games in this Bin 50% Off” section. I was hoping they’d be foolish enough to throw in a really great game (I still don’t have New Super Mario Bros. on the DS) for this deal, but I only came out with this one. Strangely, this game is the start of another Mega Man series. At this point, I’ve no idea how any of these games connect, if they do at all.

Persona Q Wild Cards Premium EditionPersona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Wild Cards Premium Edition
3DS
Release Date: November 25th, 2014
Purchased at: Amazon (Online – $80)

Man, up until a week or two ago I forget I even ordered this game, let alone it was coming out this week! Way back in the summer (or was it even earlier?) when this game was announced I put down my preorder. It’s essentially a crossover between the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4 in an Etrian Odyssey style dungeon crawler. And this version comes with a whole bunch of spiffy stuff, not the least of which being those sweet tarot cards. Or should I say half of the tarot cards: included here are only half of the full set used in the actual Persona games. The get the other half you have to buy a special version of Persona 4: Arena Ultimax on the consoles. Shame on you, Atlus, for getting greedy and making me buy all your games!

Laters,
Jsick

Sunday Roundup: 12/1/13

New Games (12-1-13)As far as Black Friday video game deals go, this year wasn’t too nice to me. Sure, there were some great finds that I’m sure many people loved, but I didn’t find much of anything across 2 separate GameStops, a Best Buy, Target, Toys R’ Us, and even another Goodwill. That being said, the games I did find weren’t crazy, must-have titles, or superbly awesome sales, but they are good enough to be added to my collection. So let’s get the first Sunday Roundup of December started!

Gaming News: 11/24/12

What happened last week? Something big… something noteworthy…

Something. Ugh, I can’t think of it.

Oh yeah! The Wii U was released, and that’s pretty much what every news piece concerning games related to this week. Still though, some stories sneaked through the Wii U dominance and caught my eye as well this week. Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Thanksgiving!

Whether or not you’re living in the United States and celebrate the holiday, there’s always reason to be thankful during this time of year (and any time of year, for that matter). A few notable examples are family, friends, and of course the holiday sales on all your favorite video games! Here’s a quick run-down on what’s for sale and where. And if you’re one to avoid massive crowds and don’t want to go out this weekend, then I’ve got plenty of deals for you online as well. Take a look!

Gaming News: 11/10/12

Get your wallets reader everyone, Black Friday is almost upon us. And with that not only comes leftover turkey and delicious desserts for the upcoming weekend, but also great deals on video games! Many big retailers have released their advertisements for the shopping event, so you’d better start planning where you’re going, what you’re going to get, and how you’re going to deal with all those other people waiting in front of you in line! My suggestion? Don’t make a scene.

Also this week, two bits of information concerning everyone’s favorite Disney-owned series Star Wars, as well as an alert to collector’s looking for games that are soon-to-be-hard-to-find.
