Last week I went to a Best Buy and a Kmart, and I picked up a few games.
From Best Buy I bought two RPGs. For $30 I picked up Tales of Xillia for the PS3 and for $35 I bought Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl for the 3DS.
I’ve heard that Tales of Xillia is the best Tales game yet, so I’m super excited to play this game. I was actually supposed to buy this game several months ago, when there was a limited edition bundle available. Now I can’t find that bundle in stores anymore, so I figured I’d just get this standard edition before the game itself becomes very hard to find.
I believe that Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl is remake of the first Etrian Odyssey game for the Nintendo DS. I don’t have that game but I do have the third and fourth Etrian Odyssey games. My copy of Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl comes with a music CD, which I think is pretty sweet.
Next stop was Kmart. I ended up buying three games from this store. The regular price for these three games is $19.99 each, but they were on sale for $15 a piece. I didn’t know these three games were on sale before going to this Kmart store.
Two other things to note: I didn’t realize that all three of these games that I bought from Kmart were published by EA until after I left the store. I also didn’t realize that these three games are the “third” game of their videogame series until I started writing this blog post. All three games have the number “3” in their title.
Anyway, I know that EA is a videogame company that has gotten a lot of hate lately and a lot of that is justified, but they do release some games that I enjoy playing. I probably won’t buy Battlefield 4 any time soon, but the three games from EA that I bought from Kmart for $15 each are Mass Effect 3 for the Xbox 360, Crysis 3 (Hunter Edition) for the PS3, and Dead Space 3 (Limited Edition), also for PS3.
I absolutely love the Mass Effect games. I do already have Mass Effect 3 for my PS3, but for $15 I don’t mind buying this game again for my Xbox 360. Having played the first two Mass Effect games on my Xbox 360 console, I look forward to importing my save into Mass Effect 3.
I don’t remember if Crysis 3 got as much accolades as Crysis 2, but from watching the trailers and gameplay footage, I think I will enjoy Crysis 3.
After finishing Dead Space 2 last year, I was itching to get a copy of Dead Space 3. Now I have heard some people who loved Dead Space 1 and 2 say that they didn’t enjoy Dead Space 3 as much or they couldn’t get into it as much as the first two games. I myself love the first two Dead Space games, so unless they really mess up the third game I can’t see myself not enjoying Dead Space 3.
