More “loot”

This is a collector blog after all so why not! I don’t really like the term loot but
everyone else is using it, maybe “finds” is better?

Anyway, let’s start with some games:


Somehow I now own the JAP, US and EU versions of both Disgaea and
Makai Kingdom! I might be a fan but that still feels a bit extreme,
the EU (PAL) version of Disgaea is definitely my favorite when it
comes to the box art but apparently the US version have both the
english and japanese voices, I will have to keep them all! The mini
version of Ice climber was a gift from my brother, I only have two
of the games from the mini series but I wouldn’t mind to have
them all one day, so cute.

Next up is a giant mystery box:

Inside we find…


Lots of newspapers! What can this be, christmas decorations mayhap
or some new fancy china?


Oh no! not this again, as some of you might know I spent last summer by
cleaning and repairing old consoles and it seems my fate is to repeat
that task this year too… Last year was much more extreme but this pile
will take a lot of time to test/clean, I have no idea if anything works
right now but some of the items have apparent damage.

I will write more about these items later when I have
had the time to do some testing.

So many things to do, almost no playing this week, at the pace of a snail I
push myself forward in Dragon Quest VI (DS version), I should be about
halfway, it has taken over a year but I will finish it!


Yes, everyone already knows everything and has read the same things ten
times but I still need to mention how amazing it has been! I never
thought I would see the day when the FF7 Remake would finally be a real
thing, not to mention Shenmue 3 and Last Guardian on the same day, phew.

Another big surprise was the Nier teaser, WOW, Nier is in the end my
favorite game of the last “generation” probably tied with Xenoblade.

I haven’t even mentioned Star Ocean 5 and Kingdom Hearts 3 trailers etc,
I am so very happy that we will finally get some new RPGs!

Lastly, I could only laugh myself to tears when I saw Nintendos
presentation, why in the world would they put the Metroid title on
that, that thing?!
Oh well, I still have Environmental Station Alpha! (I have a blister on
my left thumb after trying the new boss rush mode, hehe).

Two new games arrived today, Magna Carta is factory sealed but I can’t
decide whether to keep that one or my opened copy, hm. As I mentioned
earlier the soundtrack is really great in both of the God Eater games so I finally
bought a (new) copy of the first game! I’m currently waiting
for a “PSP to TV” cable and as soon as it arrives I will start playing.


Post time!

Time for a post!

Last weekend was a happy one, a dear friend finally managed to visit for the
first time this year, few things makes me happier, after all he is the man
who introduced me to great games like Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile,
Tales of Eternia etc! We always end up talking about those and
other games, so many good memories.

Lately I have listened a lot to the God Eater 2 soundtrack composed by
Go Shiina and I must say that I love it! So far all of his soundtracks have
been really great, Tales of Legendia especially and I felt both happy and
uninformed when I learned that he was co-composer in Tales of Zestiria…!
Suddenly the wait for the english version feels longer.

For some reason I can’t seem to save up money, just when I finally had some this happened:

Tales of x2
I don’t actively collect Tales of-games but I plan to own them all someday,
at least VS has some nice music, I have no idea what Twin Brave is about…

Ah, I wish I could spend more time and money on the PS2 collection, finally
Grandia 3 is back in my shelf, I have really missed it since I sold my old copy.
This is the first time that I own the other three and with Limbo and Braid
in the collection I soon have every (physical) PC-game worth owning.

This beauty arrived yesterday, Yuki Kajiuras latest album, it contains music
from her live conserts between 2010-2013 including HEPATICA and GODSIBB
from Xenosaga 3, I had no choice but to buy it. I can’t wait to
listen to 3,5 hours of godlyness!

Phew, besides all that I also bought a US PS3 that plays PS1 games and
a much awaited Xeno poster that will appear in the poster section later.
I’m broke, hehe.

Lastly I’m of course looking forward to E3, mostly to get some release dates
but I think this can be an intresting year overall, one week to go!

That will have to do for today!
