Game Collection Roundtable 03/27/2016: Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS), XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus (Vita)

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.

Nameless: The One Thing You Must Recall (PC)
Magical Eyes – Red is for Anguish (PC)

Nameless was a late birthday gift (thanks Ted!). I can never have enough pretty boy sims, especially since I got my platinum in Code Realize. Magical Eyes is a review copy. I admit to having my interest piqued by the morbid sounding premise in the store description, and I’m liking what I’ve played of it thus far.

Finally, I get to one of these before the deadline goes up.

I picked up Twilight Princess a while back (I’d preordered it) and completed it. It’s not my favorite Zelda game but it was still really fun. It really put me in the mood to see the Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses, which comes here in November. I guess next I’ll have to play Windwaker, which I’m told I should enjoy.

I also preordered (and subsequently picked up) the Roy amiibo. We don’t have a large amiibo collection on purpose, but I’m happy to fin
ally have some Fire Emblem in that collection. One day I’ll be able to track down a Lucina. Maybe.

Ryan ordered World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1, which we’re both looking forward to. I recently got into Hearthstone, as it doesn’t take a lot of time or energy (I have little of either these days thanks to graduate school), and there’s a promotion thing going on where if you level a World of Warcraft character up to level 20 (which you can do for free), so I figure I might do that on the rare occasion where I would have time to put into a game.

Chibi-Robo Zip Lash (3DS) – Had a five dollar coupon that was about to expire. Grabbed this because it looked cute. Then I looked up some information about it. Apparently I bought a poorly designed platformer that will try to sell me licensed snacks. Sigh.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus (Vita) – This dropped out of nowhere, and I grabbed it minutes after finding out about it. It seems like a port of the iOS version of EW, which is fine? It has some glaring performance issues though. The load times are bad enough that I got flashbacks to playing Madden on my old PSP.

Disney Infinity 3.0 stuff: Picked up Black Panther, Darth Maul, and Toy Box Speedway. Oddly enough, I ordered the Toy Box Takeover, but decided to not bother sending it back. I needed both anyway. Panther and Maul are probably two of the best looking figs to date, and I am incredibly happy to have them.

The Howler (PC) – I got a new debit card in the mail and wanted to test it out. I figured a fifty cent steam game was the way to go. It has something to do with a hot air balloon. I may never play it.

Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS) – Because my Wii U gamepad doesn’t reach to the bathroom.
