TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan Announce Trailer and Screenshots

If you haven't heard, there's going to be a TMNT game coming later this year!

and the announce trailer that was just released a while ago..

Looks not too bad.. I'm trying to keep my hopes down for this. There's been several TMNT games in the past, some were decent, some not so good..

But with Platinum Games working on this, plus some observers are saying this will be a open-world game with 4-player online co-op which sounds exactly what a TMNT game should be.

I'm not expecting this to be great but if it isn't broken and most importantly, if it's fun, this will be more than enough for me. I love TMNT and with all the excitement surrounding it with the 2nd movie this year and lots of collectibles, hopefully this will be another positive for the turtles' fans.

McFarlane Toys' Assassin's Creed Movie Figure coming?

Some pics from Toy Fair 2016 in UK have popped up online and it looks we have something from the Assassin's Creed movie..

Here we have the Aguilar figure from the 2016 Assassin's Creed movie, starring Michael Fassbender.


Looks not too bad, the likeness of the actor is definitely there. Hopefully production pieces can come close to that.

Not surprised to see a movie figure come out, I just wasn't sure if McFarlane Toys was going to do one. So, thankfully, we will have one to go with the rest of the figures.

So, now the question is.. "Will there be more figures of characters from the movie? What about building sets like the ones from The Walking Dead TV show?"

The Aguilar figure also comes interestingly packaged in a 'Redcap Collection' box. Not sure what that means but there's also a Shay Cormac in a similar packaging.

Pic isn't all that clear but it looks like the Shay Cormac figure from series 4. Or is it a variant? Will have to wait for more info I guess..

No doubt we will see more collectibles from the AC Movie, maybe a Hot Toys one? Will be really cool to see a Michael Fassbender/Aguilar figure of their quality!

Far Cry Primal Trailer - King of the Stone Age

New trailer dropped for Far Cry Primal as we approach it's release, just over a month away..

Here's the trailer.

Yummy looking supper at the 10-sec mark, don't you think?

Trailer's full of brutal action, getting me excited for this. Can't believe this is so close to release though. That said, the lack of multiplayer has me a little disappointed and based on the patterns over the years, this should go up for sale, rather quickly.

Might consider waiting this out and pick it up probably at the end of the year when it goes on sale. Especially, with the backlog of games building up and considering I haven't touched any of the other Far Cry titles..

Looks like a lot of fun though, can't wait to see the reviews!

Until Dawn Torchlight Collection Pics

1 more item from that bundle of random items I got..

The Until Dawn Torchlight!

This one is a bit more rare. Wasn't given out as a preorder bonus but heard from the seller that this was given out at a media-only launch event in Singapore. Pretty cool!

Again, I'm not that keen on keeping this, so will sell if a fair offer comes along.

Bloodborne Letter Opener Collection Pics

Bought a bundle of random items recently and this Bloodborne Letter Opener was 1 of them..

This was given out as a  preorder bonus for the game here in Singapore.

Comes in a cool, sleek box..

Let's take a look at it.. There's also a space to hold your letters until you are ready to slice them open.

The sword can be removed.

Neat! Really cool piece of merchandise but not something that's a must for me. Really wouldn't mind selling it if I get a fair offer for this. Drop me a mail at jveron004@gmail.com or PM me on Facebook if you are interested.

Hitman Collector's Edition and release details revealed

Square Enix has confirmed that the new Hitman game will be fully episodic.

With the first episode set in Paris when the game releases in March. the following episodes will see gamers travelling to Italy, Morocco, Thailand, US and finally Japan in monthly episode releases. 

A bit similar to Telltale Games' episodic releases for their games.

Gamers can choose to purchase individual episodes or the entire 'Season' for the standard game price which should be slightly cheaper.

There will be a beta version, which will be available on 12th Feb for the PS4 and 19th Feb for the PC. Pre-ordering should give us guaranteed access to the beta.

Also for the hardcore fans, a Collector's Edition has been announced, based on votes.

The Collector's Edition will include:
- HITMAN Digital Game Download (Full Experience)
- 10” Agent 47 "Chessmaster" Statue
- Hardcover 60-page art book, curated by Art Director, Jonathan Rowe
- Agent 47 Iconic red tie and clip set
- Premium Collector's Edition packaging (aka the box)

First game purchase of 2016 for me?

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Shift Codes with Exclusive Skins & Weapons

Can't believe they are still giving out Shift Codes for new Exclusive skins and weapons for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Went to take a look at all the exclusive theme-based items and there's a few, some of which I haven't unlocked myself. Hopefully, they are still valid..

Here's the list of all I could find..

If there's any more that I have missed, do let me know!

Will try redeeming them tonight to see if they are all still valid..

Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack 2 Gameplay Trailer & Details revealed

Some details have emerged regarding the Kombat Pack 2 for Mortal Kombat X..

First things first.. The gameplay trailer of the 4 upcoming kombatants...

Looks cool! Most excited to play Triborg but the others aren't so bad. Predator vs Xenomorph will be a good fight!

As of now, apart from the 4 characters previously announced.. Goro will also be included in the pack.

There's also going to be some skins included..

The Apocalypse Pack is new and will feature skins for Takeda, D'Vorah, and Erron Black.

The rest were all previously available on PSN Store. Thankfully, I wasn't too interested in the 2 packs and didn't purchase them, so the KP2 will be a nice deal for me. 

Also hoping they include other content, together with each character release, similar to how they added fatalities and skins with the Kombat Pack 1 releases.

Anyone buying these or just too late for you? Or are there too many guest characters in the game?

AC Syndicate Checkers Set, Newspaper & Coasters Set

More AC Syndicate stuff to expand the collection!

Here's an actual Newspaper that they released in Netherlands to promote Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

I don't understand dutch of course, but you can make out what each article is about based on the pics. Quite interesting, looks like a paper you would find in the news stands back in the Victorian era.

Here's a different set of coasters from the ones at the German Pub Tour.. but they will all go together.

The best goodie in this lot is definitely this nice checkers set. Packed in a box this cloth checkers set looks really neat.

We have the Rooks' gang emblem on 1 side..

and the Blighters' gang emblem on the other..

One of my favourite AC Syndicate collectibles so far..

More AC Syndicate collectible pics coming in the next few weeks!
