[Picks of the Month] June/July 2019

Hello guys,

Yes, two months in one. And yes, very little to talk about. Unfortunately the summer months are always a desert and the fact that I spent two weeks on holiday, far from markets and auctions has further shrunk the amount of new games.

Giving this premises the jewel in the crown in these two months is the PS Mini. I wasn’t so keen to buy one because from the firtst days after its release it was clear that it was a dull copy of the original console, made with no efforts in trying to restyle a bit the games featured (and the games featured are in most of the cases rather average). Even when the price has ben cut and dropped to 39,99€ I ‘ve been hesitant but then after a few days I got it as a present from my gf, so all of my hesitation suddenly faded away.

Yes, the game roster is quite mediocre but there are some games worth to try, for example GTA, even though getting used to the console controls is a bit hard for me having always played it on my PC and Resident Evil Director’s Cut. I still have to delve into all of the games but I’ll have plenty of time this weekend.

Only a few games featured in this post, plus most of them will be shipped in August so I still haven’t got any pictures of them: the two I alreaday have are two NES games, Amagon and Tetris 2.

Then the next month I’ll receive WipEout 2097 for the PS1, a game I’ve played a lot on my PC as a kid, then The Evil Within 2 for Xbox One I’m curious to try after having briefly played the first on the Xbox 360 and finally, always for the Xbox 360 Biohazard 5 Deluxe Edition. This is the first non-PAL version of a RE game in my collection and I bought it because it was rather cheap. I don’t know if I’ll ever complete a full collection including also the different localization if the games (so al least PAL, NTSC and J-NTSC) but, in case, this could be the starting point!

    Some months are slower than others, but you still managed to add a few titles so it’s not a complete loss 🙂
