G'day GAF! Here are my pick-ups for August
Some rare-ish Commodore 64 Lucas Arts goodness:
The eBay prices for this are crazy
The only Lucas Arts adventures that I've finished before are The Secret of Monkey Island 1 and 2. Once I'm done with Baldur's Gate 1 (...now easily
in my favourite games of all time), I plan to play through this. What platform should I play it on GAF? I have a few retro computers set up in my house.
On to the more modern stuff:
My favourite game of all time
I have physical vanilla copies for the PS3, Xbox 360 (+ digital for PC) and the boxed Premium Edition for 360 but this is my first time owning the Songbird Edition. This is unopened too! The seller packed it so well that it rocked up in perfect condition. Happy days. Now I just need to buy and play through the "Complete Edition" copies on each platform (Infinite is my most completed game...I've done so many runs through it).
I didn't want to leave my PS4 hanging to dry, so I finally grabbed Nier Automata:
I scored the steelbook for a reasonable price too:
I honestly really want to play NieR Automata right now
but I'm going to hold out until I can acquire a mint-condition copy of Nier for the Xbox 360 and play through that first. The soundtrack to the original Nier has been at the top of my WinAmp 2.11 playlist for whenever I'm coding for eons, so I really need to play it. Preferably sooner rather than later.
Some under appreciated JRPG Xbox 360 goodness:
And some other assorted gems that were missing from my Xbox 360 physical game library:
