Game Collection Roundtable 06/15/2015: Lego Jurassic Park, Amiibo Wave 4, Killzone Trilogy (PS3), PC Explosion

Every week, the Diehard GameFAN team adds new games to their collections. Sometimes they are new releases, physical or digital, DLC or full games, but they are all building blocks in our greater collections.

Tabletop

Elder Signs: Unseen Forces
Call of Cthulhu d20 Game Master Pack

I bought both of these at the crazy blowout sale Chaosium had on their website. Everything went quickly. I wanted Arkham Horror and Mansions of Madness but I was too slow in deliberating. I still managed to get an expansion for a game my wife and I enjoy as well as a collection of d20 CoC bits for only $4.95 – and it usually goes for $80 on the secondary market. Awesome

Batman Miniature Game:

Mr. Freeze
Blackgate Prisoners II set
Commissioner Loeb and Gotham Police Set
Hush
Firefly
Gotham Butcher
Court of Owls Set

New release day for the Batman Miniature Game I love so much. I picked up all the new releases, which is a first for mwe, but they were all terrific. I also grabbed Mr. Freeze, a prisoners and police set to help flesh out some things. That’s 16 new guys to paint, 20 if you count my Lady Shiva set that arrived missing a lot of parts. I’m really looking forward to painting all of these.


Mark B.

The XCOM Collection (PC)
The entire Leisure Suit Larry series (except for Box Office Bust) (PC)
Shantae: Risky’s Revenge (PC)

I haven’t bought anything for myself yet, but Sean was nice enough to pass me the XCOM collection on Steam; I only had UFO Defense, so having Terror From the Deep at the very least will be a lot of fun. Aileen gave me Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, also, which should be fun; I’ve never really done a lot with the series, but it’s clearly well liked, and Rogue Legacy opened my eyes to the possibilities of platformers on PC, so this should be a good time. Also, Alex picked me up basically every Leisure Suit Larry game ever on GOG, including Softporn Adventures, which I’m really happy about. It doesn’t have Box Office Bust, but I mean, that’s not a BAD thing.


Aileen

Battle Realms + Winter of the Wolf (PC)
Cubetractor (PC)
QuestRun (PC)
Ys VI: Ark of Napishtim (PC)
Dandelion: Wishes Brought to You (PC)
Daedalic Armageddon Bundle (PC)

First three were from giveaways, Battle Realms from GOG and Cubetractor and QuestRun from Indie Gala. Ys VI was a gift from Mark, which I appreciate very much (more Ys/Falcom is always good). Dandelion was a gift from my friend Ted, and it’s an otome I’ve heard good things about. Crystal got me the big Daedalic bundle (thank you!), which was great because I had several of their games on my wishlist.


Aaron

Lego Jurassic World (PS4) – I rarely do day one purchases on sixty dollar games. I can count the number of times I’ve done so in the past few years on one hand. But just how in the blue hell am I supposed to pass up Lego versions of Ian Malcolm, T-Rexes, and DENNIS NEDRY?! Even if the game ends up being absolutely terrible, I’m going to end up having a blast with it. I probably should have mentioned, if you hadn’t already guessed, I am a massive Jurassic Park fan.

Starcraft 2 : Heart of the Swarm (PC)- I’ll be picking this up on Friday. I’m nearing the end of the Wings of Liberty campaign at precisely the time when they decided to put this on sale. If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what it. Been absolutely loving SC 2 so far, and can’t wait to break stuff with the Queen of Blades.


Madson

Alphadia Genesis (PC)
Chaos on Deponia (PC)
Wario amiibo
Charizard amiibo
Pac-Man amiibo
Jigglypuff amiibo
Greninja amiibo
Ness amiibo
Robin amiibo
Lucina amiibo
Silver Mario amiibo
Splatoon 3-pack amiibos

While I didn’t necessarily buy all of these this week, my various orders are now just arriving. I also picked up Alphadia Genesis on the Steam sale and was gifted Chaos on Deponia (thanks Mark!)


Matt Yaeger

Just Cause 2 from Games with Gold. I’ve beat it before but I wanted to play it again and realized I didn’t have a copy. One of my favorite sandbox games.

Killzone PS3 collection. It was $10 and I’m dumb.
