The other day my family was out at Makro in Cape Town, and my mom came across Aliens versus Predator – the one from 1999 – for R99,99. And she didn’t pick it up for me either, which was upsetting.
You all know by now if you bother frequenting this blog regularly that I am a big classic games lover, and I would have liked to have added this to my collection of classics. It’s been years since I played AvP Classic.
Anyway, this weekend I went to Tyger Valley Centre and popped in at Musica, where I saw something that I hadn’t seen there months earlier when I last visited to do some classic game collecting. It was Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Trilogy, which has Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. A three in one pack, originally released a few years ago, which today sold for R99.
Then I went over to CNA and had a look at what they had to offer. They had some pretty good stuff. I was impressed by some of the classics they had on offer. But I eventually settled for Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance – a classic that I haven’t seen sold in stores for years, and one that I’ve wanted to get a hold of for years as well.
I suppose the next time I’ll collecting will be next month. I all ready have my eye on Diablo II and the Lord of Destruction expansion, or else it would have to be StarCraft along with the Brood Wars expansion. I haven’t played either for years. I’ve played them, but haven’t actually owned them if you know what I mean. I played Diablo II years ago at a friend’s house.
