Game Collection Roundtable 03/19/2016: Pokken Tournament (Wii U), EA Sports UFC 2 (PS4), PSN Flash Sale

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.


Lucard

Pokken Tournament (Wii U) – if you had told me, even up to several months ago that a Tekken fighting game would be deeper, harder, play smoother, have less bugs and be a better overall fighting game than the latest Street Fighter, I’d have laughed at you. Of course, SFV has been a pile of crap right out of the gate and Bandai Namco had Nintendo (and the various branches of TPC) micromanaging this one. Hpw did this turn out so wonderfully and yet the Fatal Frame games have been a disappointment.We are living in crazy times.

Lego Dimensions (PS3) – Isaid I’d only get this is it fell under $50 and was finally ableo get a copy for $7, so I stuck to my word.

Lego Dimensions Emmett Pack
Lego Dimensions Superman Pack
Lego Dimensions Stay Puft (With ZUUL!) Pack
Lego Dimensions Retro Gamer Level Pack

It begins…

Ryu Amiibo. I don’t get Amiibos. Never have, never will. Howeverthe Ryu sculpt was pretty sweet and it goes nicely with my SF4 Collector’s Edition Ryu. Plus this was a gift so hey, Lucario and Mewtwo have company.

Aileen

Undertale (PC)
Stardew Valley (PC)
Dangan Ronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PC)

These were birthday gifts (thanks Chris, Aaron, and Mark!). Undertale garnered a lot of hype last year, and skimming the Steam reviews makes it seem like a…surreal experience. Also there are apparently an uncountable amount of dogs so that’s a point in its favor right there. I’ve heard lots of good things about Stardew Valley, so I’d been wanting to give it a whirl and woo some peeps while being a strong independent farmer. Also you can have a dog in it (what can I say, I’m a dog person). Dangan Ronpa on Steam and being able to play it on a larger display is awesome.


Aaron

EA Sports UFC 2 (PS4) – Caved on this at the last moment. The roster is massive, it has more modes, and the punching is still great. It’s got some odd features though. I lost a training session for my created fighter because my gym had cable installed. I’ll be writing up a review for this at some point, so hopefully it gets better.

Disney Infinity 3.0: Marvel Battlegrounds Playset – Ordered this a while back because they were offering it for ten bucks off at places if you pre-ordered. Haven’t tried it out yet, but that new Captain America figure looks pretty sweet. A shame I won’t be able to take advantage of the four player vs mode though.

Dungelot: Shattered Lands (PC AND iOS) – Got the PC version for review, and then bought the iOS version in a fit of addicted madness shortly thereafter. My review should be up by now, and it’s a mostly solid game. It gets a bit long in the tooth as the dungeons get bigger, but it’s still a decent amount of fun. I usually don’t like roguelikes, but this one won me over.


Madson

Ryu amiibo
Roy amiibo

After this, there are only three DLC characters left for me to collect of the Super Smash Bros. line of amiibo (Cloud, Corrin, & Bayonetta). Then I can wash my hands of this whole thing… until the next super cool line comes out.


DTN

There was a PSN sale on the The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and Trails in the Sky Second Chapter. Figured it was the best time to pick them up after continuing to torture myself with my current Trails of Cold Steel playthrough and wait for the sequel to come out. It’s fine. The game is fine. Ihateeverything.

Oh and the Roy amiibo. Huzzah~
