New Loot (#27)

Hubby's been on a retro gaming kick and decided to buy me every Final Fantasy game he could find for consoles, except for the online-only ones. I did not object.

Here's a brief list of the ones I've gotten in the last couple of weeks...

***Final Fantasy***
Published/Developed by Square Enix

I already had Type-0 HD Collector's Edition (PS4; rated M), FFX/X-2 Limited Edition (PS4; rated T), and FFXIII/XIII-2 Collector's Edition/Lightning Returns (Xbox 360; all rated T), so that means the only one left to get is FFVII. I tried to order that, but the one I bought ended up being VIII instead of VII (seller error), so I need to find a different copy of VII. I'll probably just buy it in the PlayStation Store. It's only $10 there.

You know what? Screw that. I'll get the Steam (PC) edition of FFVII. That way I can mod the heck out of it. They also have FFIII. I'm pretty sure I'm getting ALL the FF games for PC, so... yeah. I probably didn't actually need to get all the retro disc games. LOL

Until next time...

Screenshot Saturday (#1) - FFXIII-2

I'm starting a new weekly post wherein I share a screenshot I've taken from one of the many games I play. Some of these might be interesting, surprising, fun, or just plain odd. Battle scenes, menu screens, character quirks, or any other thing that catches my fancy. Enjoy! ♥

For today, here is a randomly selected screenshot. OK, not so random. I don't really do random, especially with pictures. :P

CoOpted by Silver Stag Entertainment

I have this friend, this writer/gamer friend, and she has this friend, this.... well, I don't know anything about him. They have this show called CoOpted, in which they play games together, sometimes awkwardly, sometimes badly, sometimes fantastically, but always hilariously. This is their show.

Oh, I should warn you. There is some strong language in this show from time to time. If you're easily offended, don't watch.

Borderlands Episode 1

I strongly urge you to click on over to YouTube, give the video a like, and then watch the more recent episodes. It's pretty funny, especially if you've played Borderlands. I may have yelled at my screen whenever they missed a loot chest...

Until next time...

New Loot! (#26)

A few non-FF games we've gotten recently... 

***White Knight Chronicles II***

Published by Sony Computer Entertainment/D3 Publisher
Developed by Level 5/SCE Japan Studio
Released 2011
PlayStation exclusive
*Rated T for Teen*

When I first asked hubby about getting a PS3, he told me to look for playstation exclusive games and let him know how many there were that I wanted. He was trying to determine if there were enough to make the purchase worthwhile. This was one of the games I found and added to the list.

I originally wanted the first game, White Knight Chronicles, but then I discovered that II includes a remastered edition of WKC I. Soon as hubby informed me that he'd ordered a PS3, I had him order this game for me. :D

***God of War***

Published by Sony Computer Entertainment/Capcom
Developed by SCE Santa Monica Studio
Released 2012
PlayStation exclusive
*Rated M for Mature 17+*

Five games in one, though the copy we got doesn't have the two games that are download codes. It's a chance one takes when ordering used games. Ah, well.

This one might have been a mistake anyway. Not sure yet. I'll have to play it and see if it's too gory for my delicate sensibilities. ;) It might end up being hubby's game, but he never really cared for bloodbaths either. We'll see.

***Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec***

Published by Sony Computer Entertainment
Developed by Polyphony Digital
Released 2006
PlayStation exclusive
*Rated E for Everyone*

Hubby's latest retro score. He had to complete his Gran Turismo collection, after all. Now he's waiting for the new GT game to be finished. Meanwhile, he can relive the joy of these older games.

Until next time...
