Catherine: Stray Sheep Edition

A few months back, I reviewed the standard edition of Catherine, and was quite impressed with it.   Now the experience is enhanced.   The Stray Sheep edition comes in a pizza box, and has inside Vincent’s shirt, a couple of coasters from the bar, a poster, and of course the game itself.   Adrian also tells me that you can ignore the price stickers in the above photo, they are going for $79.88 each!

Asura’s Wrath

I know nothing about this game, but the cover looks cool and here is what Wiki has to say about the plot…

Asura was once one of the Eight Guardian Generals, 8 Godly warriors who fought to protect Heaven and Earth from a destructive force called the Gohma. Returning from a victorious battle, Asura was summoned to the Emperor’s throne. But to his horror, Asura finds the Emperor has been murdered and he has been accused of the crime. After escaping vengeful imperial forces, Asura rushes home to protect his family only to find his beloved wife Durga dead and his daughter Mithra kidnapped. In his rage, Asura finds his former allies who have Mithra captive. As the demigod charges to save his child, Asura is repulsed by the god Deus, who reveals himself to be the Emperor’s murderer so he can bring about what he calls “The Great Rebirth”. Weakened by Deus’ attacks, Asura is dropped over the edge of the platform and falls to Earth while swearing to exact his vengeance.

Twelve millenia later, Asura escapes from the depths of Naraka to find that his former comrades, now dubbed “The Seven Deities”, have been using Mithra’s power to amplify their own to god-like levels. During his quest for love and vengeance, Asura will confront and battle the forces of Heavens, packs of the Gohma, Divine Battleship fleets, and other tremendous obstacles. Sometime later in the story, Asura’s old rival Yasha will see how wrong the ways of the Seven Deities are and will try to aid Asura in his battle.”

Rocky Action Figures

Get Rocky and Apollo Creed to battle it out in your own home.   ‘Nuff  said!

Battle Royale

This is a cult classic of a film that pits young teenagers against each other in a game of survival.   Think this year’s upcoming Hunger Games, but Asian and potentially a lot more bloody.   I haven’t seen it yet, but every indication is that it is amazing, can’t wait to see it!!

I am told this little beauty has been hiding out in the back room.   But it is now found, and it is yours if you want it.   12 issues of The Walking Dead in one volume.   The series is due to start on Foxtel this Sunday, so pick up a copy and get acquainted with this popular franchise!!
