    i have to ask does it have googly eyes yet?

    Nah, I haven't done anything too much with it, no googly eyes. That kind of thing doesn't matter since its eyes are covered by the VR helmet.

    I'm burning off the last of my vacation time, four days and some personal holidays, so I'm out of town again. Went to a GameXchange and bought a Steelbook version of Persona 5, Raiden V: Director's Cut, and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood VR. That last one might be a good one for me... the freeroaming VR games have been making me almost instantly motion sick, maybe being on literal rails (it's a rollercoaster game but the animatronics attack you) might help with that. Oddly, mine says "Not for resale" like its a pack-in but I've never seen it at any other store before so it's not common enough to be a pack-in. I'll have to research that.

    Oh, that makes sense. Since I typed that I had never seen that game anywhere before I suddenly started seeing it everywhere. And I bought my PS VR second hand so I had no idea what the original pack-in was.

    I've just come home from vacation, and stopped briefly at a GameXchange along the way to buy Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition and another charger cable for the PS3 controller. A couple of days ago I picked up Mad Max and Deception IV - The Nightmare Princess at a 2nd and Charles store. Also bought a couple used manga.

    Today's my birthday, and my current boss is less dickish than my previous one so I was allowed to have the day off. I got myself a great meal (grilled Australian barramundi topped with lump crab meat) and hit a great but difficult to get to game store that's too annoying to reach to go to very often. Bought Labyrnth of Refrain, Tokyo Xanadu eX+, and Valfaris. Not pictured was a cheap third-party PS3 wired controller I bought used to replace my stand-by since it won't charge any more.

    The wife wanted to do a family fondue party, so I went out to the thrifts during lunch today. I found skewers along with a $5 V Smile system with Kung Fu Panda to replace one my kids have that always freezes. This one would power on when you plugged in power, so that told me it thought a game was inserted. A generous squirt of contact cleaner and a couple insertions of a cartridge and it was working fine.

    I haven't been posting my pickups as of late for whatever reason, so I've got a couple pics grafted together of the games I've picked up in the games I've picked up on my several days off.

    I spent $29.99 for Defender's Quest from Limited Run games, and it turns out it's basically a phone game that doesn't use any of the power of the PS4, and has artwork that looks like something off Tumblr.

    Ping Pong VR was a UK release that I didn't think was brought out over here, and when I see these kinds of things I feel the need to snap them up because I might not ever see it again.

    I've played some of Abzu, and it's not as much of a game as it is an experience made to chill you out. It's beautiful and I have no idea what the goals are.

    I went to a good game store in my hunt for a decent selection of games for the PS4. I don't go to GameStop if I don't have a gun to my head (I stopped going there around the era of the Nokia N-Gage being clearanced, it's gotten much worse since then) and there's several Game X Change stores around along with Movie Trading Company stores, but they don't have the biggest selections. There's lots of quirky little games for the PS4 along with oddball Japanese titles that generally don't end up in those places. I really like going to a higher end game store that has maybe 500 different PS4 games on the shelf, a good chunk of which are new. And not too expensive, either.

    I saw a short YouTube of gameplay of Gal*Gun, and it looked so stupid and bizarre I just had to track it down at a Movie Trading Company and get it. Gunvolt, The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2, and Risk of Rain 2 came from Game Trade in Mesquite, TX. Great store. When it comes to the PS3 and PS4, they carry stuff I've never found at any other store. That's great for the collector in me.
