Infamous Pinball

My first new games bought of 2015 happened when I was talking with Usagi704 about how one of the PlayStation 4 games I’d like to get would be The Pinball Arcade. He followed up by saying that the game is likely to become harder to find. I didn’t want that to be the case and asked where he bought his copy. He said Toys-R-Us and I noticed they closed in an hour on that night. I immediately headed out and found that they had one copy left. While I was there I also spotted their last copy of Infamous: Second Son and also included that game in my purchase.

As some of you may know I’ve been playing some PS1 titles lately in response to the original PlayStation’s 30th anniversary in early December. I didn’t have PS2 component cables to make those games look better. Once I bought them the television I was using them on wouldn’t always display video. I don’t know exactly why it was happening, but I knew a perfectly working TV that Usagi704 had sitting around would do the trick and it has since I started using it yesterday.

Those are my first gaming purchases of the new year. How about you? Anything new?


UPDATE: As it turns out I remembered incorrectly. Usagi704 actually saw a copy of Tomb Raider: Underworld at Toys-R-Us and not a copy of The Pinball Arcade. In fact, he bought The Pinball Arcade off of Amazon instead.
