So I just ordered these games online for a catch from The Warehouse and CDWOW! I know not all of them are really great games but they were going pretty cheap, I also picked up World of Warcraft Cataclysm from the store yesterday, I'm not really into wow but my brother players it pretty avidly and I had a ton of fun in it in the past yeah I obviously have the other expansion , but I'm not into throwing myself in the game or huge amounts of time , I mainly just enjoyed the the RPG playing by myself killing players as I progressed, don't get me wrong I didn't go hunting people or even kill people lower level than me , 90% of it was self defense.. honest. Anyway these are the games I ordered.
I've actually got this in my ps3 at the moment about to play it, just about to check out the trophies boy do I like trophies and achievements that's one of the main reasons I've purchased alot of these games. Iv e played Mirror's edge about 2 times before and always been a fan of the game and it's introduction to acrobatics to FPS games at least its the first I know of or can think of that's done it. The game cost me
$17.99 with free shipping all games from CD WOW! have free shipping that's one of the many things I like about the site, and of course its bargains. S picking up a ps3 game for 18 bucks seemed like a sweet deal to me , not that I'm trying to justify my spending it's all pure overindulgence, that and my new years resolution was to start buying Games in the retail box's because I've come to hate just having the game on my steam account or computer with the CD key in a email or something. I'm hoping to get all the trophies because I don't remember there being anything in the game I couldn't do so it shouldn't be a problem yet although I'm saying this before having looked at the trophy list.
Front Mission Evolved PS3
So this lol?, yeah really, I was on game-trailers looking at some Top 10 GT countdown games from a link a friend of mine Eugene, sent me, he always sends me links of new games and other various links I would probably never find myself , hes good like that. I'm not sure I would have bought some of these games If i didn't watch those video's on game trailers they really sold them for me, they were reviews. the front mission review was actually quite condescending actually but the way the bloke did the review it seemed like a experience I'd want to have with the game myself like he had, So when I was scrolling through the bargain basement on CD WOW! I came across this for $26.00 free shipping , I recently played Fear 2 on my PC and PS3 and when I was in the power armor yet again and I thought to myself I would like to spend the whole game in this suite on hard difficulty and all then laughed to myself yeah right. then saw this game and with those missile pods you get to fire it seemed like what I was looking for at the time. The disk clip inside is actually broken but it 1 side of the 3 seems to still be holding the disk still lol.
Lost Planet 2 PS3
So Lost Planet 2 was the other review I watched which generally showed the game to be quite terrible actually endless justifying the game all the way through , stand up guy he was. The game seems to have a 4 player coop online , which is always cool playing a game with someone always makes the game 'that much better' depending on the friend you have of course, cough*. The game seemed to consist of alot of futile missions and blowing up massive creatures with your buddies which seemed a good enough reason to get it for
$24.99 that and the lingering dream at the back of my head of having a massive game collection In my house one day and a game experience I want to have of course.
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm PC
So I thought I'd add this to the list even though I picked this up from the store and not online. Cost me $59 on the dot I have all of the others I think so I figured If I'm going to get Cataclysm to jam with my bro I might as well get the box, since the price is about 7 dollars apart, more for the box
Resident Evil 4 PC
I got this for $ 2.97 with another game Dark Messiah: Might and Magic.
I've played Resident Evil before and to my memory I think it was the one I most enjoyed for some reason maybe because I really haven't played any of the others haha other than Resident Evil 5 which was relatively recent last year I think, that wasn't that great but for 3 dollars for both I couldn't say no.
Dark Messiah: Might and Magic PC
So I have played this game before and I really loved this game It was awesome , I actually tried playing oblivion before it but It wasn't my cup of tea at all , I checked this game out and tried it and Loved it really good story and everything. I definitively recommend playing this game and it was a absolute steal at $2.97 with RE4
Ok I haven't even watched the movie of this game and I'm not going to even try and justify myself for buying it for $ 4.97 , but how bad can it be, I kind of Just wanted to add the achievements to my Windows live accounts but how bad a can it be? I guess I'm going to have to watch the movie now. It actually didn't come in a box like the box art I have on the left, It came in a blue baby handle like one personally I would have preferred this one on the left as it was displayed on the site but I really don't mind.
Tom Cancy's: Splinter Cell Conviction - Collectors Edition PC
So wow this only Cost me $19.97 and for the collectors edition I was pretty stoked , It comes with a model of Sam I'll link below the black CD box in the picture below looks pretty cool , I didn't get that one however I just got the normal PC one I have here on the left the model is actually pretty damn cool, although I'm not a really big fan of all Tom Clancy games I did like the Splinter Cell series
It also comes with some exclusive in game content and the original soundtrack. Out of the all games I bought this week I was most impressed with this one, It was the last one in the store at the Warehouse and had to be bought online
I actually Didn't get this game, I ordered this game for around 20 bucks from CD-wow! but it seemed to be a mistake and they canceled my order , its around 90 bucks usually. It was obviously too good to be true personally I think they should have awarded me the game , It was their mistake miss advertising but what can you do , I'm not bothered at all but I will look at trying to get the game in the future if I ever see the price really low
Mini Ninjas PC
This cost me $8.79 Free Shipping I don't really know anything about this game at all but its mini ninjas'? come on has to be good, I saw this game advertising a while ago cant remember where but the price was well away from 9 bucks so I thought I'd grab it
Devil May Cry 4 PC
I've never actually played any of the Devil May Cry games but heard so many good things about them and seen a ton of trailers and video's so I saw it on CDWOW! and decided to pick it up for
$13.99 Free Shipping
I'm still waiting for Mini Ninjas and Devil May Cry 4 to be delivered they will probably arrive tomorrow or Monday.
So those were all the games I bought , I've definitely taken a good step on my way to purchasing games in there retail box's. I really do love steam but it just doesn't feel like you get what you payed for at all. I really don't like having a bunch of numbers in front of me telling me I own a game and owning the actually hard copy is part of the great experience for me. I know very well steam accounts can be hacked and numbers erased never to be remembered I've lost a steam account before It's not something I want to invest in largely again
