Gaming Over the 4th

Got some gaming in this week and a few purchases.

Bought (over the last month actually)

Batman Arkham Asylum for 360 - Only the Arkham Collection is avialable digitally on Xbox right now. I just wanted the first one for a good price. I got that with physical.

Pure for 360 - I wanted a good physical copy of this fun racer.

God of War for PS2 - I needed a case for my loose disc copy.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars for DS - Same. I needed the complete boxed copy. By a creator of XCOM and plays like it.

Chronicles of Riddick for OG Xbox - I wanted the Dark Athena version for 360 but it's better to have some version of it than nothing.

Condemned 2: Blooshot for PS3 - I wanted the 360 version but this was all I could find. It's not available digitally, only the first in the series.

Red Faction Guerrilla for PS3 - Same with this. The Re-Mar-stered version is available digitally but this was cheaper.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for Wii-U - I stumbled on the digital version on Xbox one day and absolutely loved it. It's just nice having a physical copy and a great addition to my Wii-U library.


Super Mario Galaxy - I rented the Super Mario 3D collection to play it on Switch. I just love the perspective bending gameplay as you traverse planetoids and wack space plants. I grew a little tired of it though. Maybe it's the Switch controls that I still don't feel too comfortable with. Anyhow, I still have it on Wii for next time.

Bioshock Remastered - I'm playing this on Xbox Series S digitally. I'm totally hooked again. I'm going after lots of achievements I never had before. I've also never finished this remastered version of the game, although, I'm almost at the final battle now. I may even go back to the 360 version as well and mop up any achievements I left behind there too.

I've been doing new things in the game like using the camera a lot. My whole strategy is to gain as much research as possible so I shock 'em first then photograph them. I've maxed out most of them at this point. Also done all the weapon upgrades and most of the magic powers too. 

The ultimate challenge is difficulty levels with no respawn booths. I'll try it at least when I get there.

That's a week and more. I'm still on games '07-'09 for the month. How many I'll get through is going to be interesting. Who knew there's be so much left to do in Bioshock.

How's yer gamin'?

The Sonic racing games they made back then are really good.  My favorite characters to race as are Tails and Ulala.

I think I said it before, but if it weren't for my nostalgia for Super Mario 64, I'd say Super Mario Galaxy is the best 3D Mario game.  Even better than Oddessy.

Galaxy is pretty great. I'm not even a platform game fan and I like it.
