Latest Purchases #51
The Worlds Collide Crossover for Sonic and Mega Man is well underway. In Part 4, our blue heroes finally realize that they've been set up and start fight side by side rather than against each other. Part 4 is actually takes place in Mega Man #25. I like this crossover but at the same time, I'm a bit miffed that it's taking place during some landmark issues. Sonic the Hedgehog #250 is right around the corner and it's already been confirmed that Worlds Collide will run through that issue.
I've known about LEGO's Architecture line since 2011 and I've been very intrigued by it. See, I've always been fascinated by building structures. Be it comic books, movies, paintings or real life, I've always loved the look of cites. So combining buildings, actual landmarks with LEGO is one of the coolest things ever. So for my first LEGO Architecture set, I went with the Empire State Building, the tallest building in New York City. At $20, the Empire State Building is one of the cheaper models. It even comes with a set of building prints and facts about how long it took to complete the building and what types of material were used to construct it. Pretty sweet that they went the extra mile to include all that stuff. This is also the first LEGO set I've bought for myself since I was 12.
Seems like it's been a dog's age since I purchased a PlayStation 2 title. It's not easy to find a lot of new PS2 games at reasonable prices but I'm glade I was able to find Final Fantasy XII for less than $15 brand new. Yes, this game gets a lot of hate. Not to the degree of Final Fantasy XIII, but the hatedom for this installment is still quite high. Nevertheless, I want to give this game a shot for myself to see what it's like. Besides, I LOVE this game's soundtrack.
