It's because they got a press release about it. They would not have posted anything if they didn't get the nudge from their PR.


While that may be the case, I was more mocking tylerh1701's sarcasm about it, which I found to be a bit unnecessary. But it's a moot point anyways, since the deal doesn't seem to be live. Oh well. :bouncy:

I didn't get any messages on my Playstation, but it's live for me. BloodRayne is showing $11.99 and Renegade Ops showing $8.99. I'm thinking about Renegade Ops. If it goes on sale on Xbox, the lowest it will be is 600 points ($7.50) so I would only be out $1.50 if I picked it up now.

EDIT: For what it's worth, I did download and play both of these demos when the games were released. These are the craziest deals I've seen on PSN before.

Agreed. I'll have to DL the demos & see if the prices change at all, so wacky they chose to do it like this (or a weird glitch, all the same).

I've got final confirmation that the BloodRayne not being live to everybody is a mix-up in communication between Sony and the publisher, so it should be getting sorted out soon.

Edit: Actually, it seems like an error with the way they announced it. The $11.99 price won't show up until you download the demo, though you don't need to actually download it first. The same is the case with Renegade Ops, so you can do the same thing if you want that deal.

Almost tempted on Renegade Ops, but the CAG in me knows that I should wait. A 33% discount on a game that is also on Steam isn't enough. I will wait for 66% or more on Steam :lol:

If only that deal was good the whole month so I can be sure it wont be cheaper in the Steam sale.

40% discount if you have PS+, but your point is still valid. I'm not a PC gamer, so this deal is still tempting me.

#3757 Chrono Gear

Chrono Gear

    For the Horde!

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 10 December 2011 - 04:58 AM

So I'm looking at the Hyperdimension Neptunia DLC and it doesn't really look like there is anything critical in there. I see the 5pb events for $2.99, Red Events for $2.99, level cap raisers for $0.49 each, and battle tickets to use certain characters in combat.

I'm assuming I can buy any of the level cap raisers and they will raise the cap that much and I don't need to buy them all (but I probably will anyway), or do they need to be purchased in order? I would imagine some people would like to just buy the +300 levels. Also what are the battle tickets for? Are those characters otherwise unplayable? Or are they unlocked in game? Perhaps only playable for a short period of time like Lynx in Chrono Cross (Sorry for the ancient reference. It was the first thing that came to mind)? Finally are the events just extra quests or meatier DLC worth the price?

I want to make sure I buy all the DLC that is good to have. Don't really care that much about stat boosters or clothing.

Well, if you arent after asthetics, you'd only really need the Red and 5pb events (Since they include brand new characters to use in battles, plus extra story), and maybe one of the level boosters if your planning to go for all the quests (You DONT need, but it helps).

Personally, i got all of the costumes excluding the accessories, and all of the events and 1 of the level boosters. (Might get all of the accessories too)

As far as the level booster goes, it goes in order i think? So i think you have to buy them that way, i didnt try personally.

As as far as the Battle Tickets go, you get the 2 characters ingame, but you cant use them in battles without it. (So if you unlock them before you buy it, you can use them the moment you buy it)

Everything else is pretty much just for appearance, or if you want to be a cheater and blaze through the game (Namely the boosters and equips)

Thanks for the info. I think I'll pick up a bunch of stuff. Seems kinda crappy to have characters you can't use without paying for them but whatever, they aren't outrageously overpriced.

Thanks for the compliments for the reference everybody. I realized after the fact it might have even been considered a bit spoilerly since it happens a ways into the game, but if you haven't played it by now you probably aren't going to. I hadn't ment for it to be anything more than example of a character that you only get to use once.

So same basic question as Chrono Gear, but for Trinity Universe. What exactly is all the DLC and what is worthwhile?

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

The old school NES difficulty is great. The trophies give you a good challenge. I also found the controls fine. I got this on the PS+ sale and still on chapter 9.

At least it's not as hard as Battletoads on NES! That was a fucking hard game.

People seem to be split about the controls... I hated them. Made it almost unplayable. But that's coming off of playing Castlevania for years. Maybe I've been conditioned against anything else.

I wouldn't spend more than $5 for BloodRayne personally.

I really disliked the controls in the demo as well. And if i'm not mistaken, you can't duck, which is awful.

IIRC, Joystiq loved it as well. But ya, it's strange when games like this polarize reviewers. El Shaddai is another one with some extremely high scores and much lower scores.
