Compulsive Collector Obsessive Purchasing Disorder My Life 13 MAR 2007

ultimate spider manDamn my weakness when it comes to gaming. I specifically told myself I wouldn’t purchase a new game until I’ve completed all the games I’m currently busy with. Lo and behold, last night I pop into Tygervalley Mall for a quick trip to Pick ‘n Pay and decide to make a quick stop in at Musica just to have a look around. And there was the damn Ultimate Spider-man (PS2) game I’ve been looking to get for a while now just staring at me at the wonderfully low price of R150. Unable to control my collector obsessive disorder that plagues me to this day, I regrettably have to say I purchased, all the while grinning like an idiot.

But what a good purchase! Sure GameSpot only gives it a 7.1, but for any comic book fan, this is one perfect purchase. From the start this is a game about a comic book and is played and presented like a comic book. Happiness.

Now my busy playing list looks as follows:
– Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
– Psychonauts
– The Matrix: Path of Neo
– Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams
– Ultimate Spider-man

(I won’t mention the fact I’ve got a bead on a cheap copy of LOTR: Return of the King which I probably will give in to)
