I probably shouldn’t be buying as many games as I am but there as so many deals right now! This is going to be short because although I bought Chrono Cross, FInal Fantasy VIII, Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3, I haven’t loaded them up yet. Yeah, I know, I probably shouldn’t have bought them but oh well. So yeah, I bought seven more games since last Tuesday or so. I got Chrono Cross on the PS3 via PSN, Final Fantasy VIII, Batman Arkham Origins and Lego Marvel Super Heroes on PC via Steam and Green Man Gaming, and Lego Batman 2, Gears of War 2 and Gears of War 3 on the 360 via the Games Store.
I’ve popped in Lego Batman 2 and Lego Marvel Super Heroes at bit and had a good time. I’ve been wanting a Lego game for awhile since I don’t own any of them though I have played several. I got what I’ve heard are two of the better ones, though I would’ve liked to have gotten Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. I went through the first stage in Lego Marvel and the first two stages in Lego Batman 2 and I’m liking Lego Batman 2 a bit more. The fight with the Joker in the sea was pretty fun.
However, the game I’ve kinda been focusing on among my purchases has been Batman Arkham Origins. I’m a big fan of the Arkham series and I just went through Arkham City not too long ago. Playing Origins, I can say that it’s a lesser game than the first two but it’s a good game none the less so far. It looks good, the combat is great, the story is less creative but solid and the voice acting is still great. I just finished my encounter with the Penguin and the Deathstroke boss fight was amazing! It’s a variation of the Ra’s Al Ghul fight from City but its super cool and more up close and personal than that was. Overall, I love it and it may not be as good but its not that far off.
So that’s what I’ve bought recently. Have you picked up any new games recently?
