Day 11 – Weekends Are Brutal On The Pocketbook

I may have purchased a bunch of video games yesterday.

Like a lot of them.

To be fair, most of them were re-buys of PS3 games on the PS4, since I’m trying to pull over games I want to play all onto the same system.

Then there were the ones that I just wanted to buy.

I have a problem, I know!


So what did I buy? Glad you asked. 🙂

Walking Dead – seasons 1 and 2
I already owned season 1 on PS3, but couldn’t bring myself to finish it knowing that all future seasons would also need to be purchased on the same system in order to continue the storyline. Might as well start over on the newest platform.

Tomb Raider
I already owned on PS3, but haven’t gotten very far. The sequel will be on PS4 anyway, so might as well own both on the PS4.

The Last of Us
Again I already own on PS3, but haven’t gotten very far. I figured I’d probably need to start over anyway to remember what happened so starting over on the PS4 would be way more fun.

Life is Strange season 1
I do own this as well on PS3, but with the second season coming out soon, I decided I’d rather collect them on the newest console. I’ve only played episode one on the PS3, so starting over won’t be a big deal.

Beyond Two Souls
I’ve actually beat this one (one of the few games I have finished on PS3), but was very intrigued by the updated feature in the PS4 version to be able to play chronologically. If you haven’t already played this, definitely play the director’s order first, but once you’re done, I think it would be worth a try playing through chronologically. I’ll let you know how it goes for me.


And then there were the games I didn’t already own but were on some sort of sale and I’ve heard good things about them so…. yeah…. I’m totally failing my video-game-buying fast, aren’t i?

  • Little Big Planet (Because I keep hearing cool things about this series. I’ve never played any of them before).
  • Thief (Because I played the demo and found it really interesting).
  • Game of Thrones season 1 (Because it’s Game of Thrones. What other reason do I need really?)
  • Infamous Second Son (Because I own Infamous First Light already – haven’t played either one yet, but they both look really interesting).
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Because…. cuteness).

To make things better, I listed about 15 games on eBay, including a crap ton of old Assassins Creed games that I bought and never got around to playing. I love the newest rendition in this series, but everyone who grew up playing them says this one is the best, so I’m not sure playing them retroactively would really be the best use of my time. I’m sure if I had played them when they first came out, I would’ve loved them, but going back now to older technology would probably just be really frustrating.
