It’s not every week I go video game shopping, although I do love my shopping and I do love my games. This week though I decided to go down to my local Bookmans, which is basically a used book store that also has games/music/instruments/action figures/everything awesome. This store is one of the reasons I hope the industry doesn’t push for getting rid of used games. There’s so many titles that I’ve never even heard of or vaguely remember! That means my future-favorite game could have easily been lost to me, because I didn’t pick it up when I was younger!
So, this week I decided to ditch picking up a Vita (which I was probably going to do anyways) and go back in time. I grabbed Resident Evil: Code Veronica, since after finishing Revelations I wanted to re-play the series and collect them all. Voodoo Vince an Xbox game developed by Beep Industries and published by Microsoft Game Studios. It looks like a neat platform game, but it’s a original Xbox game that is not supported by the 360 console WHICH BLOWS. This probably means I’ll end up returning Voodoo Vince, unless someone will loan me their original Xbox for a bit. Lastly I got the Summoner, a Playstation 2 RPG released by THQ. It had fair reviews and seemed worth the $4.
I also got in two rentals from Gamemine, a rental service much like Gamefly. I got a new copy of L.A. Noire (hopefully disc 2 + 3 will work this time), along with Hunted: The Demon’s Forge.
That’s it for this week, stay tune for a Revelation review.
