Back in my mid-year life update, I mentioned the fact that earlier in the year I got an Xbox One. I’ve been obsessed with gaming and have come across quite a few games that I adore. I even recently posted about three Xbox games I’ve been obsessed with. Generally, when it comes to games I like variety and to switch things up often. Having recently completed Resident Evil: BioHazard and being very close to completing BioShock Infinite I found myself after new games to play. The problem? Games can be pretty pricey. When you add them all up it can be a pretty damn expensive hobby. My advice? Always look around for the best offer. I like to keep an eye on HotUKDeals as often games pop up on there at really good prices.
One website that I recently discovered that sells certain games at very reasonable prices is The Game Collection. I managed to grab myself eight games for less than £50 which isn’t bad at all. The prices stated in this post are what I paid for each game and I suspect these prices change often. So that being said, what I paid for each game might not be the current listed price. Oh, another thing worth mentioning, the website also sells pre-owned games, however, the games I purchased were all brand new, in perfect condition, sealed and came super quick. Seriously I ordered them late Saturday afternoon and they were with me on Tuesday. Plus I didn’t pay ANY delivery fee. Anyway, enough chit chat, onto the games I bought.
The first game that I ordered from The Game Collection was Titanfall. This set me back just £3.95. Titanfall is a multiplayer first-person shooter in which players control pilots and mech-style titans. The game requires Xbox Live and although I haven’t yet played it, it kinda sounds a little similar to Overwatch. I mean if you play as D.Va in her Meka it really starts to sound similar. Anyway, like I said, I haven’t yet played Titanfall but I’m looking forward to it.
The second game I ordered from The Game Collection was Titanfall 2. Again this was £3.95. When I spotted the sequel and saw the low price it was kind of a “why not” moment. I don’t know much about the game other than the fact that it differs greatly from Titanfall because there is an additional single-player campaign.
The third game I picked up from The Game Collection was Evolve. This is a first-person shooter in which five players battle against each other. Four players play as the hunters and one person plays as the monster. The hunters’ goal is to eliminate the monster. The monster’s goal is to ultimately evolve and make themselves stronger. They do this by consuming wildlife. Once done their goal is to eliminate the hunters or successfully destroy the objective. I’ve not given this game a bash yet but it sounds fantastic, especially for a mere £3.95.
Homefront: The Revolution
The fourth game I ordered from The Game Collection was Homefront: The Revolution. This is another first-person shooter which is set in 2029 in an alternate timeline. In the game, you follow Ethan Brady as he stages a resistance movement against the army of North Korean occupation in Philadelphia. The game has an open world environment with many districts to explore. The game is also supposed to have a really good weapon customization system so I am excited to play. At £5.95 it was a pretty good deal.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
The fifth game I ordered from The Game Collection was Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The reason why I bought this was purely because in all the videos I watched it looked super pretty. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a first-person action-adventure platformer where you play as Faith Connors. You basically progress through a futuristic city using urban exploration and parkour movements to fight or evade enemies and complete missions. The visuals of the game are seriously stunning. The game is so different from what I normally play but it is a refreshing change albeit I do find it a bit of a challenge. This game cost me a nifty £5.95.
Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare
The sixth game from The Game Collection I ordered was Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare. This is the thirteenth primary instalment in the C.O.D series which was released back in 2016. The game is unsurprisingly a first-person shooter but it takes place in outer space. Other than that and the fact that Infinite Warfare underperformed in sales compared to the previous Call of Duty titles, I really don’t know much else about it. That being said I am looking forward to giving the £6.95 game a bash.
The seventh game I picked up from The Game Collection was Dishonoured 2. Dishonoured 2 is an action-adventure game that has stealth elements played from a first-person perspective where you play as a supernatural assassin. In the games sandbox environment, you can complete missions in different ways from stealth to violent conflict. I’ve not yet got round to playing Dishonoured 2 but I am super excited to give it a try. In terms of price, this game set me back £7.95.
Resident Evil Revelations
The eighth and final game which I purchased from The Game Collection was Resident Evil Revelations. I absolutely LOVED Resident Evil BioHazard so I thought I’d try another game from the series. At £9.99 I simply couldn’t say no to Resident Evil Revelations. In the game, you play as counter-terrorism agents Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they try to stop a bioterrorist organisation from infecting the Earth’s oceans. So far I’ve played a little of this game and compared to BioHazard I don’t love it as much. I don’t hate it, in fact, I am quite enjoying it but there are some things about the game that I’m not a fan of. However, I’ll save that discussion for another day.
Are you a gamer? Have you ever purchased anything from The Game Collection?
