I suck at pinball in knowing how to mainipulate the ramps and so on, which is why I don't think I'll get many, if any, of the original Zen Pinball tables. I can keep the ball alive for a decent amount of time, but that's just hitting the flippers, not too hard.

Yeah, thats what I meant. I can hit the flippers and time that just fine, but getting points and hitting the right timing is something I just dont get. I also feel like I lose a lot of balls where they go behind the flippers and you have no chance to even hit it. I just dont have the patience to learn either. Ah well, at least I dont think Plus sucks because I suck at pinball!

Ya, logically day/month/year makes the most sense since it's shortest to longest. But I just look at the dates posted for that sale and imagine what on Earth the 19th month of the year would even be called haha.

The year/month/day format has always made the most sense to me since it's easiest to sort when the most significant digit is on the left. Sort of how like one-hundred is written as 100, and not 010 or 001. I'm probably in the vast minority on that one, though. :D

I just started playing Infamous 2 last week too. Now I gotta pony up $50 to play it again.
I am really enjoying plus, however. The discounts usually aren't that helpfull but the free games are a wonderful (although a time sink) bonus.

Oh, I don't know how to intentionally score points, I just hit the ball and hope it goes where it needs to go to get me my points.

I obtain little from Plus, but that's really just due to my life as I have no time to play the games I really want (and paid money for) let alone the free ones I get from Plus. As an example, I'm trying to finish Folklore which I bought when it was originally released.

Overall my three month subscription worked fine for me and I took full advantage of the FF sale but I haven't played any of the free games enough to even get a single trophy or make it past one level. I've held off on renewing though I would if there was any type of discount out there.

I'm pretty sure it hasn't and that game has been out almost as long as the PSN store has been opened. You'd probably be okay buying it now but if you want to be safe, wait until after Halloween.

Go read the requirements for the Zen Pinball trophies at PS3Trophies.org. All I gotta say is what the Fuck?

No one is ever safe buying games for "full price" on PSN when they have plus. I couldnt believe they put Saints Row 2 out for free when the game had been out for years.

I think the Zen pinball trophy requirements are what made me not even bother continuing to play the tables when I got bored. Crazy convoluted to me. I think I started drooling part way through reading about them.

Yeah the ZP1 trophies were a nightmare, basically unattainable for all but the very best. I haven't had a chance to look at all the ZP2 trophies.

True, but I don't think the game had been on the PSN store for years. I mean, yeah, sure, there's a chance Siren may go on sale or even free for Plus, but the game's been available on the store for over four years. Most (if any?) Plus offerings aren't that old.

It is a long shot for sure. People should pay what they want for games they want to play. I have just been surprised by some old games being put on sale or free lately.

Yeah, I read the message while I was in a game so I couldn't redeem it, but since I'm a person who sends and receives a lot of messages, I was like, ehhh, I should probably stop what I'm doing and redeem this just in case I forget.

One potential reason: in English, it's read more fluidly the American way. 9/7/2012 is usually read aloud, in English, in the same order as it's written: "September 7th, 2012." While "the 7th of September" is also an appropriate reading, it's not as common (at least not in the U.S.-- no idea about the U.K., so maybe having the day first makes even more sense there).

In languages like Spanish, for example, it's traditionally read "el siete de Septiembre," lit. "the 7th of September." That's the only European language I speak, but if it's the case that the majority of the others happen to follow a similar syntax when it comes to speaking dates, that would seem to explain why it's done differently in Europe (and elsewhere) than here.

Overall, it makes the most sense to me to write it in the same order that it's read in the language being used, as it makes the reading flow better. Adopting the European approach would make a lot of software development much easier, though, being much easier to sort/display when developing software / user interfaces...

Yes it did I am working on it and almost doing 100% on Zen Pinball 1, there is a Menu called trophies on it, which explains what you need to do in order to get some specific trophy.

After I finish this one I'm moving to Marvel Pinball and only after ZP2.

It takes time and patience to master these pinball games

Can someone explain how importing songs from other versions of Rock Band into Rock Band Blitz works? The only Rock Band games I have currently are Beatles Rock Band and Lego Rock Band. Do I need Rock Band 3 to import them into before they can be imported into Blitz, or is there a way to just add them to Blitz?

Thanks in advance.

You can't export Beatles Rock Band's songs, but Lego Rock Band is exportable. Blitz just recognizes the DLC file that it creates for all of the games.

Check out Harmonix's Song Export guide for more details.

http://blog.us.plays...2-new-releases/

The Drop for this week:

PlayStation Network

NHL 13 – Driven by real-world physics and more than 1,000 new gameplay animations, NHL 13′s True Performance Skating authentically replicates the explosiveness, momentum, and top-end speed of NHL players. Supported by an innovative new A.I. system dubbed EA Sports Hockey I.Q., the game delivers a completely revamped gameplay experience true to what gamers see on the ice during real games. In addition, NHL 13 delivers new experiences that connect hockey fans to their friends and the real world of hockey with the all-new GM Connected and NHL Moments Live modes.

Battlefield 3: Premium Edition – Using the power of Frostbite 2 game engine technology, Battlefield 3 delivers superior visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and incredibly lifelike character animations. As bullets whiz by, walls crumble, and explosions throw you to the ground, the battlefield feels more alive and interactive than ever before.

In Battlefield 3, players step into the role of the elite U.S. Marines where they will experience heart-pounding single player missions and competitive multiplayer actions ranging across diverse locations from around the globe including Europe, Middle-East and North America.

ALL FIVE EXPANSION PACKS WITH EARLY ACCESS

Own all five uniquely themed expansion packs and play them two weeks early. The classic, reimagined and remastered maps of Back to Karkand; the unrelenting, fast-paced action of Close Quarters; the largest map in Battlefield history featured in Armored Kill, plus two more expansion packs coming soon! Get’em all and get’em at a discount with Battlefield 3 Premium. More Details Here

Max Payne 3 – When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long. This dark, gritty action game utilizes cutting edge technology for a seamless, cinematic action experience. The game boasts highly-refined gameplay with an extensive range of realistic weaponry, an intelligent cover system and sophisticated Bullet-Time mechanics.

Anomaly: Warzone Earth – Blending fast-paced, explosive action with tactical battlefield command, Anomaly puts players in charge of a military convoy tasked with fighting back against the mysterious alien war machines that have begun to spring up in many of the world’s largest cities. Players take part in battles personally to support and assist a hand-picked armor squad, utilizing their top-down tactical view to plot each and every turn of the convoy. As they progress through the story campaign and challenge modes, players will unlock upgrades and new units to build their ultimate destruction squad.

Exclusive to the PlayStation 3 version is local co-op mode — two Commanders to support each other in battle, one responsible for controlling the armor units while the other plans the strategy. Both get into the action and are able to boost their abilities in the battle.

Double Dragon Neon – The reinvigorated update to the 80′s beat’em up smash hit that is reminiscent to the original. Trained by their sensei in the special form of martial arts called Sōsetsuken, Billy and Jimmy are equipped with lethal combat skills and weaponry to bust some faces and battle the baddest goons around as they journey across the galaxy to rescue the love of their lives.

FIFA Street – FIFA Street 3 creates a hyper-real world that merges the game’s biggest stars with environments that pulsate to the music in exotic locales around the world. Featuring over 250 of the world’s best players representing 18 of the top international teams, each player has been rendered into a stylized caricature with heroic qualities. Decked out in authentic training kits, every player boasts their own, distinctive style of play with unique abilities to match. Choose from Tricksters, Enforcers, Playmakers and Finishers to give you different options on the ball and make your mark on the street.

La Pucelle: Tactics is a tale of betrayal and double cross, monsters in human form and humans in monster form, set in an alternate medieval Europe. The unlikely hero is a smart mouthed and undisciplined sixteen year old who just passed her exorcism exams and her comrades in La Pucelle, a demon hunting squad. La Pucelle serves up a rich storyline, with equal parts characterization and personality to match. Gameplay involves capturing monsters and successfully manipulating each stage’s Dark Portals, all set to a quirky old-school atmosphere and complemented by extra gameplay features, like the bartering system. Over 100 hours of gameplay with multiple endings await.

Also, how tough are the Spelunker HD DLC levels?

I just barely got around to playing the main game, after turning on the rope assist and learning the rules of the game, I got through the first 10 levels fairly easily, plus with the fact that you can save and go back at any time, even if the game is hard it seems like I should still be able to get through it.

So, is the DLC like way way way harder? I bought DLC pack #2 and beat the first 2 levels, though they were pretty damn tough. I know what I'm asking isn't exactly easy to answer, but any input would be great. And for anyone who's played both Spelunker and Super Meat Boy, are the DLC levels harder, about the same, or easier than Dark World in SMB?

Thanks.
