Sunday Roundup: 11/30/14
I’m a bit late posting this week’s roundup, but here it is! As for a Black Friday weekend Roundup, this wasn’t too great. But still, a trio of excellent games nonetheless!
|Disney Infinity 2.0
Release Date: September 23rd, 2014
Purchased at: Target (Sunnyvale, CA – $35)
I honestly couldn’t pass up this chance to grab Disney Infinity on Wii U for so cheap,. Actually, it was on sale for every system at that price, but for some reason or another I was leaning toward the Wii U as my go to system for this one. Perhaps it was the Miiverse posts about the game that steered me the way of Nintendo. Either way, it’s sitting here in my apartment taunting me to open it up and play/waste more money on other toys. Sadly, this now completes the tri-fecta of NFC toys and games: I have Skylanders, Disney Infinity, and Nintendo’s Amiibos. *Sigh*
| Mega Man ZX
Release Date: September 12th, 2006
Purchased at: Target (Sunnyvale, CA -$8)
Again, another price I couldn’t pass up. This one was the only worthwhile game in the “All Games in this Bin 50% Off” section. I was hoping they’d be foolish enough to throw in a really great game (I still don’t have New Super Mario Bros. on the DS) for this deal, but I only came out with this one. Strangely, this game is the start of another Mega Man series. At this point, I’ve no idea how any of these games connect, if they do at all.
|Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Wild Cards Premium Edition
Release Date: November 25th, 2014
Purchased at: Amazon (Online – $80)
Man, up until a week or two ago I forget I even ordered this game, let alone it was coming out this week! Way back in the summer (or was it even earlier?) when this game was announced I put down my preorder. It’s essentially a crossover between the cast of Persona 3 and Persona 4 in an Etrian Odyssey style dungeon crawler. And this version comes with a whole bunch of spiffy stuff, not the least of which being those sweet tarot cards. Or should I say half of the tarot cards: included here are only half of the full set used in the actual Persona games. The get the other half you have to buy a special version of Persona 4: Arena Ultimax on the consoles. Shame on you, Atlus, for getting greedy and making me buy all your games!
