How’s everybody doing? Good I hope. Welcome to my 3-in-1 blog post. On tap is my current purchases, the new releases for this week, and a yay for me moment. Let’s get to it.
First up are my purchases. I went out to Gamestop at the local mall with the intention of buying Resistance 2. I did so and also included some good (as in condition) used games: Viking: Battle for Asgard, Genji: Dawn of the Samurai, and another copy of Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival.
Now for the new releases of this week (already in progress). There’s several good games to pick up if you’re looking for something new. I’m sure that many WoW players are looking forward to the new expansion pack to their favorite never ending game.
I’m personally looking forward to only one game out of the bunch and it’s also my pick of the week: Mirror’s Edge. Several games that I’m interested in seeing how they came out is Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff and the PS2 version of Call of Duty: World at War that just came to my attention.
I’m also surprised that the Wii VC gets Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (GEN) since all three Super Nintendo SFII games are on the service already. The game is the same as SFII Turbo. Let’s just hope that the extremely redundant Genesis version of Super SFII doesn’t show up.
