Choose My Halloween Games

For the last two years I’ve made it a personal gaming event to play games with the spirit of Halloween in mind and blog about them. In 2010 I played Splatterhouse and Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest and last year it was Demon’s Souls and Shadowgate Classic.

This year I leave it up to you from the choice selections I have listed below. The eight titles shown are in groups of two and all you have to vote for is the group letter. You can let me know by commenting on this blog post on GameSpot or by reaching me on Twitter @HartKnight.

Vote on!

Alright, back again and this time I show off a total of 21 games and 2 systems that I’ve added to my collection.

In the past some of you have wondered how I get all of this stuff. It’s all thanks to a wizard or if you’d rather a different reason, then we’ll go with Joe Pesci. Thanks Joe! (lol) In the end it’s about what I got not how I get it. So let’s get to the goodies.

First up is two Game Boy Pockets, one blue (eBay) and one green (eStarland.com). I invite you to check out this video I made that shows me testing the unopened green Game Boy Pocket for the first time.

Now for the games. The picture above is to give a perspective of the many games I bought. Below are more detailed shots via links of smaller groups. Group #2 are actually replacement games as the ones I already owned were working fine, but the label color didn’t match the disc color.

Final Fight 3
The Scorpion King: Sword of Osiris

GROUP #2
Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

I was thinking of plans for future blogs/videos and I thought of showing off sections of my collection that were requested by you all. I’m not going to do a multi-part of all my PS2 games or anything really long like that. However, I’m willing to show games that I have from a certain series or something similar like that. Maybe even with some gameplay footage at the end to spice things up a little. So if you’d like to suggest something, please do. Just remember to check out my game collection list to see what I have first.

Like always, I’ll put up another blog here soon. So thanks for reading.

New Releases 2008: November 16-22

I was going to do this week and next week together this time, but when I looked at what was being released, it looked like a normal amount for three weeks! So for the occasion I upped the “3 Big Games” to 5.

For my pick this week I could go for a number of titles in that huge list below. However, I’ll settle for two. One big game and one pick-up-and-play game. The “casual” game that sticks out to me is Metal Slug 7. The big title is going to have to be Tomb Raider Underworld. I never went near a Tomb Raider game until the revamp with Legend and now I can’t seem to get away.

Enough of my jibba-jabba. What’s your pick for this week (even if you get it later)?

THIS WEEK’S 5 BIG GAMES
Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (PS3, X360)
Tomb Raider Underworld (X360, PC, PS3, WII, DS)
