Happy Tuesday, everybody! Sorry it took me so long to post today. My internet was out for half of the day, and then I was actually done this about an hour ago, but everything I wrote just magically disappeared. Don’t you just love when that happens? Ah, technology. Anyway, this week’s haul includes God Of War III Remastered for the PlayStation 4, three new Blu-Ray releases, and one Blu-Ray release from last week.
Kratos is back in God Of War III Remastered for the PlayStation 4. This is my favorite game in the series, although I haven’t played Ascension just yet. I’m looking forward to playing this again, even though the game doesn’t appear to look much different from the original release. Sure, it’s not a new game in the series, but that’s okay, right? Well, it depends on who you ask. I wonder how the Uncharted Remastered Collection will compare?
Next up is the Rogue Cut of Days Of Future Past, which adds about 20 minutes to the film. The added scenes of course include Rogue, whose scenes were cut from the Theatrical version by director Bryan Singer. Now, these scenes have been implemented back into the film. I’ve heard that the premise of this cut is that it’s Rogue who sends Logan back. This makes sense because Kitty never had powers that would allow for this to happen. However, I haven’t seen the Rogue Cut for myself yet, so I’ll have to add back to this when I do. This also includes 90 minutes of new Special Features, the Theatrical Version, and some (not all) of the special features on the original release. In other words : hold on to your original release disc.
Up next on the list are three blind-buys. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Ex-Machina, and being the sucker for science-fiction that I am, I can’t wait to check it out. It Follows has had a lot of good publicity going on around it. People are saying the film feels like a horror move from the 1980’s. I sure hope this is true. Last on this week’s haul is a zombie flick starring Ahnuld. I’ll pretty much watch him in anything, so this should be interesting.
All of this week’s release prices were exceptionally low. I was shocked. X-Men was $20, Ex-Machina was $14, It Follows was $13, and Maggie was $14. Add in a $15 certificate, and my total was around $80. Because of how low the Blu-Rays were, it’s like I got GOW III Remastered for free! It just goes to show you why I always shop on release week. Great deals.
Well, that wraps it up for this Tuesday Haul, but there may be a bonus haul later this week. I bought a ton of essential Batman graphic novels during Barnes & Noble’s B2G1 sale.
Speaking of Batman, I finished Arkham City in less than a week. Now I’m just finishing up all of the Riddler trophies, and I’ll be moving on to the Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC. I should have a full Backlog Blog Review of Arkham City up before the end of the month, if not sooner.
Until next time!
