PS2_additons

So far this year is off to a good start in regards to my game collection with the addition of about 20 titles for PS2.

  • Fight Night Round 2
  • Formula One 05
  • Black
  • Tekken 4
  • Call of Duty World at War – Final Fronts
  • 50 Cent – Bulletproof
  • Street Fighter EX3
  • Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2
  • FIFA 07
  • Turok: Evolution
  • Socom US Navy Seals
  • V8 Supercar – Race Driver
  • Scarface – The World is Yours
  • Resident Evil – Code Veronica X
  • NBA Live 09
  • NBA 2K10
  • Crazy Taxi
  • Commandos Strike Force
  • WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2009

I’ll likely take a closer look at NBA 2K10 as it’s an interesting release for the PS2 (one of the last releases for the platform). Resident Evil Code Veronica again is another interesting game, Street Fighter EX3 and Black will be looked at more closely on the site soon with possible ‘let’s play’ videos to come of those games.

Thanks to my friend Adam for these games, there are some great games in the list and will take a while to go through them all and play each one. Thanks again.

New Collection Addition: Nintendo 64


About 2 weeks ago I managed to pick up a near-mint Nintendo 64 console in original packaging. Finding anything new for my gaming collection is always exciting and finding items close to mint condition in the box is a bonus. I also picked up a few games shortly after getting this (which I’ll go into in separate posts) but the addition of a Nintendo 64 to my collection brings back many fond childhood memories of sitting around the couch in summer with friends playing Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark split-screen.

The Nintendo 64 is one of my most favoured consoles of all time and holds nice collectors appear as it was the very last console based on cartridges including Nintendo’s last also.

Thee Nintendo 64 , often referred to as N64 (stylized as NINTENDO, formerly known as the Nintendo Ultra 64, and codenamed Project Reality) is Nintendo’s third home video game console for the international market. Named for its 64-bit central processing unit, it was released in June 1996 in Japan, September 1996 in North America, March 1997 in Europe and Australia, September 1997 in France and December 1997 in Brazil. It is Nintendo’s last home console to use ROM cartridges to store games (Nintendo switched to a MiniDVD-based format for the successor GameCube); handhelds in the Game Boy line, however, continued to use Game Paks. As part of the fifth generation of gaming, it primarily competed with the Sony PlayStation and the Sega Saturn. The N64 was discontinued in 2003 in Japan Europe North America and PAL regions by the launch of Nintendo’s GameCube. source: wikipedia.com

The library of games on the Nintendo 64 is not as extended as it’s direct competitor of the time the Sony Playstation, but personally in my opinion what the game library for the Nintendo 64 lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality. Nintendo have always ruled their developers with an iron fist, so the majority of titles released for the Nintendo 64 were first-party developed games.
