[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 04/02/18

Hello guys,

You should have read about my lucky purchase last week in a second hand market, since I managed to buy 4 (kinda) working consoles and I finally started my enterprise of collecting “modern” games giving the fact that I’ looking everywhere to find XBox and XBox 360 games as long as they’re cheap. The good news is that this weekend there will be another market 25kms away from here and if the sun will grace the day I’ll be surely going.

I don’t want to spoil anything particular but this week I’ve bought some really good good games I was looking at since ages and I’ve finally found the good deal. Talking about games it happened something that I dind’t know it could be possible: I’ve completed Ghosts and Goblins. And when I say completed I mean I’ve completed twice, how is meant to be. I’v made great use of the save function on the NES Mini but I think I could have finished it anyway because the unlimited continues make the game at lease a bit less challenging (but relly, just a bit).

After having finished GnG I’ve throuwn myself into a new challeng with something more modern: I’ve carved out some space under my living room big TV to put the PS2 and the PS2 to have the always ready to play and I’ve christened their “new house” firing up Resident Evil 4 for the PS2. It’s a game I’ve bought recently and that I’ve never played before. The over the shoulder visuals it’s a bit unconfortable at the beginning but as time goes by, you get used to it. It’s a bit more action oriented that the first trilogy and probably a bit less scary but it’s a good game anyway, something I will surely enjoy in the days to come.

Back to today, cross the fingers for me, so with your positive vibes I’ll be able to find something good at the market!

      I’m happy for having completed the gane even though I feel as I’ve cheated a bit…I remember your tips about getting an XBox 360! So I’d really appreciate if you could suggest some good/cheap games!
