Sunday Roundup: 4/5/15

New Games (4-5-15)Happy Easter everyone!

This week saw a collection of games from Goodwill, eBay, and GameStop. A few of those GameStop games were great finds: games I have wanted to play for a long time and games that were simply a steal for the price. Anytime I can find something at Goodwill is always a treat as well, and this there was even a surprise (literally!) in one of the games I bought. Lastly the games from eBay were part of a lot of loose DS games, but still included some swell finds for a sweet price. Read the rest of this entry »

Review: Rune Factory 4

Rune Factory 4 CoverI can’t tell you how many times I played Harvest Moon and thought to myself, “Man, growing crops, starting a family, and helping out around town is great, but what this game’s really missing is monsters, dungeons, and battle axes.” Thankfully for all of you who share my concern a brand new Rune Factory game is here and it delivers on all your turnip-growing, monster-slaying desires.

Sunday Roundup: 5/12/13

Two quick games this week, thanks to Groupon of all places. I’ve used the online coupon site before for this and that, and I’ve always seen game deals on there. It’s usually something like $10 – $20 off a somewhat new game (like right now they have Resident Evil 6 for $15). The site updates frequently, so I suppose if you’re in the market for some newish games on the cheap, you might get lucky. This week for me though, I found two games that are in a series near to my heart. And at a magnificent price!

Harvest Moon Animal Parade CoverHarvest Moon: Animal Parade
Release Date: November 12th, 2009
Purchased at: Groupon (Online – $35)

First up this week is Harvest Moon: Animal Parade on the Wii. Not only is this a Wii exclusive, it’s one of the new Harvest Moon games out there (not to mention the newest game in the series on the consoles). The Groupon I purchased included this game and the one below for just $35 total. The crazy thing is, I believe this game is around that place by itself brand new. So, needless to say this was a pretty good deal.

Harvest Moon Tree of Tranquility CoverHarvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility
Release Date: September 30th, 2008
Purchased at: Groupon (Online – $35)

The very first Harvest Moon game developed for the Wii, Tree of Tranquility came out prior to Animal Parade but both games are done in the same art style. Honestly, I expect the games to be identical to previous games in the series. By that I mean it’ll be about framing, wooing a woman, and starting a family. One more important thing to note about this Groupon deal: It also came with the plush duck from Animal Parade! A trend with Harvest Moon games is to release as a bonus item a stuffed animal from the series with each new game. My girlfriend Laura adores soft things as well as Harvest Moon, so this purchase was a no brainer. I believe we now collectively have a stuffed horse, duck, alpaca, sheep, and cow. Not to mention most every Harvest Moon game 🙂

Sunday Roundup: 1/15/12

A nice variety of games this week, thanks to a visit to a Disc Replay store I don’t often get to venture out to. Granted, it’s not the best DR store I’ve seen, but sometimes they’ve got some good deals (like this past week!). On top of that I was happy to find that the new local used game store in my hometown must have received some business, because there were plenty of new titles to choose from. I only grabbed one this time, but I can easily see myself blowing a great deal of cash there soon (and I’ll be extremely happy to do so). This brings my total game count to well over 900, and I expect to hit 1000 by years end for sure. Oh god I feel horrible… so much money!

Last week was half-priced PS2 games at GameStop.

This week was half-off GameCube games.

I went nuts.

Sunday Roundup: 10/16/11

I am really happy when I find a game I’ve been looking for. I’m happier when that game is cheaper than usual. And I’m happiest when said game is a fighting game. This week was accented by a very good find that I’m happy to have in my library.
