A few more games this time around for the collection. Not all were necessary, but it’s how these things go sometimes.
The first game is very much in that “not necessary” category. I already have Legend of Kay on the PS2. It was one of those games I didn’t know about, but ebbderelict had fun with it as he’d mentioned in his review of the game he did six years ago. As usual I’ve yet to play that one and bought the PS4 rerelease Legend of Kay Anniversary anyway.
In Neo-Geo news, I picked up Garou: Mark of the Wolves and ADK Damashii on PSN when they were on sale for around 50% off. These both are PS2 imports for play on PS4. ADK Damashii is a compilation of five games: Aggressors of Dark Kombat, Ninja Combat, Ninja Commando, Ninja Masters, and Twinkle Star Sprites.
I also bought a recent disc release of Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviours by Limited Run Games. This is the first time I’ve shopped with them and I also plan to do so for the rerelease of the Sega CD game Night Trap that they’ve announced is coming soon.
Finally, I picked up the Harrison Ford movie, The Fugitive and the great 1980s series Cosmos by Carl Sagan. This latter is a DVD set since there hasn’t been a Blu-ray version made as of yet. I also have another DVD on the way of Best of the Best 2. Wayne Newton is fantastically cheesy in this film and I loved it.
Hey there folks. I hope your holiday season is going well. Overall happy and badass, as one might expect. I have for you more things that appeared at one point or another on the silver screen or the TV screen. Let’s see what they are.
I feel like there’s a thing about me that others think I dislike The Fifth Element. This is certainly not the case. I’ve even quoted it many times since I’ve first seen it. I’ve also have watched it several times, too. With all of this being said I picked up a copy on Blu-ray in a stealbook. This is the first time I’ve had my very own copy. As Ruby Rhod would say, “Unbelievable!”
A Goofy Movie is one I’ve only seen a couple of times, but it has stuck with me. My recent viewing of Encino Man reminded me of this film. The unfortunate part is that this is still only on DVD and it’s an early generation DVD from 2000 at that. It’s long past time for a Blu-ray upgrade, Disney.
Ten years ago I was very much into watching Prison Break. Most fans I noticed felt it was over and done with at the end of season one claiming that since the main characters accomplished the title of the show that it should finish there. I disagreed and I enjoyed the second season. It was the third and fourth seasons I didn’t think we needed.
Two weeks ago a package unexpectedly, but also expectedly, arrived in the mail. It was from my Space Suplex podcast co-host @24bitAJE. Without charging me a single penny, Anthony graciously sent me five WWE Blu-ray releases spanning from 2012-2014.
First up is The Best of Sting and Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Collection. Both are 2-disc sets for each of the former Blade Runners, if you will. The next one has almost all of the around 30 War Games matches that WCW presented from 1987-2000. The great Dusty Rhodes gives some of his thoughts on what went into putting these crazy matches together in War Games: WCW’s Most Notorious Matches.
Finally, there’s two volumes of ECW Unreleased. The use of the term “unreleased” is kind of a misnomer. It seems to only apply to the ECW Championship match at CyberSlam 2000. Regardless, I’m sure both volumes will be enjoyable.
On a separate note I picked up Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse on PSN during their recent flash sale for $5.
