Woah! Alex Kidd for a buck?! AND it has trophies? SWEET!!

Before I drop the dollar, does this separate Alex Kidd download mean PS3 didn't get the 3 game compilations that are on XBLA? I don't want to buy it twice on PS3 (unless it has separate trophy lists of course :D) because I'm perfectly content buying the 3 pack if it's available.

The new little king's story has horrible english dubbing, but good thing you rarely hear some one talking.
(seems like voice actor doesn't know english or doesn't know how to act)
Also it has some what significant flame drop.

however, even with these flaws I will recommend this game.
well worth 39.99, one of best Vita game I ever played.

Its very addictive and just FUN,
this is fun to play, I hardly find games THAT is fun to play.
Graphic is Beautiful too

This was way better than my expectation.
Just played 5-6 hours straight.

Hey Chrono, don't see you much in this thread.

You're correct, the first two XBLA 3-packs (Super HangOn/Alex Kidd/Shinobi and the Monster World Games) were all released as seperate games on PSN for $5 each.

Here's the update in May where they were all released.

any recommendations from someone who has played tokyo jungle a good bit?


I'm also curious to hear firsthand impressions. Really can't decide if this is for me or not, and there's no demo.

And I really appreciate the asterisk system, I've always found the expiration system to be somewhat vague, dare I say hidden, perhaps not to draw attention to content disappearing.

I remember when netflix stopped showing movies that were being removed from Instant Streaming, for what I can only assume was the same reason.

Sweet. I'm in. Yea, PSN has been terribly slow for games I'm interested in lately. Alex Kidd is now the first thing I've bought in probably 6 months or more. I still download all the PS+ freebies but for the most part I really only pay attention to PS exclusives. Though I did boot up Double Dragon and play it for a few minutes. I don't see why people are hating on it. It's exactly like it was 20 years ago. If you didn't like it then, why would you now? I had a lot of fun and will probably come back to it again soon.

Last year I made the grade for the spend $100 get $20 back and then some, but seeing as it's been so dry lately and I've only got about $85 in credit I bought discounted, I don't see myself hitting it this year. Even if I bought a year of PS+ to take out half of the requirement. But you never know, they could have something interesting go on sale. The month has only just begun after all.

Okami HD, while not technically a PS exclusive, is definitely something I'm looking forward to.

That being said, I bought one of those PS+ ebay codes over the summer so I have no need to get another year, so I won't be participating in the spend $100 get $20 back promo.

Here's a quicklook from Giantbomb http://www.giantbomb...jungle/17-6591/ they gives a pretty good overview of the game and two of the animals you can use.

In for Sonic Adventure 2 + DLC, NiGHTs, and Alex Kidd this week. :)

I tried out NFL Blitz, and wow, this was not anywhere near as fun as I remember the originals being.. but maybe it's just the removal of late hits that's killing me.

This incarnation of NFL Blitz is still a fun game, but I too don't find it nearly as enjoyable as the older versions. No late hits definitely sucks. Funny how a completely meaningless part of the game could bother so many people.

Eh, I think it's just people letting something small that they remember get blown out of proportion so now the game is not fun anymore. It's not like late hits were the only thing that made the past NFL Blitz games fun. I'm sure it added to it, but was it really that significant? If this new game really isn't as fun as previous games, it's probably due to fundamental gameplay issues, or maybe your tastes have changed with age.

It's just like people who said the changing of the Crazy Taxi soundtrack ruined the game. Really? Is that what made the whole game fun? The soundtrack? It's just over-reacting, whether intentional or subconscious.

As for needing help towards the spend $100 promo, don't forget about that Montezuma crystal pack!

Yeah, it's definitely not the only thing that makes this game not as fun as earlier ones in my mind. I think a lot of it has to do with a change in tastes like you mentioned. But it's still a good game and everyone with PS+ should download it and check it out.

And oh shit, I almost forgot. I can stock up on 2,000,000 crystals for $140 and then get $20 back!!! I'm set now!

Just in case any vita owners out there didn't notice. Castlevania symphony of the night is finally compatible with the vita. It's not available in the ps store yet, but if you already purchased it, it will appear in your download list. It's nice to have this game on a handheld.

It's been compatible for the vita since they released the psone patch. You just had to download it to the ps3 and transfer it.

How do you guys feel about the Assassin's creed 3 bundle for $119?

The Gold edition ($89) + The Vita Game ($40) + the season pass (free?)


That is a great deal and i absolutely have the space for it. It's just i never bought a major release as digital


I have both games pre-ordered at gamestop for about the same price. Physical copies.

With the buy $100 get $20 back deal going on it makes the bundle look even better than it already is.

Any thoughts? Opinions?

I was considering this, but... isn't the Gold edition just plus the season pass? Is there anything else to it? And if so, and further supposing that the Gold editions extra 20 bucks isn't a discount over the regular season pass, that would mean this bundle has no discount, right? Please do set me straight if this isn't correct, I'll be glad to know the facts for sure.

I posted this in another thread in response to exopuppy's similar question:

(my reply):
The interest is how unique and different it is. Very surprising they brought this over from Japan. I can only play so many FPS and RPG games after years of gaming and countless entries. Something cool about it to me. Post apocalyptic setting that doesn't involve zombies. Zombies are way over done in every type of media these days though too. With that said, I'm currently playing shadows odd the damned, never dead, lollipop chainsaw, and Tokyo jungle. I bought battlefield and got in on the free premier upgrade, yet I enjoy these new IP's for their originality and trying something a but different.

Trying to see how many years you can get your animal to survive is addicting too; 30 years...I'm doing pretty good, 45 years...alright time to top that, 60 years....sweet lets go for 100!!

You would be something of a sucker, honestly. Assassin Creed games release really close to black friday and typically get discounted within a week or two. Within a year we saw Revelations drop from 60 dollars to 20 constantly and ultimately 10 with the original game at best buy. Also a lot of people forget that Season Passes are a huge risk. Usually you don't know what you're getting and sometimes it can bite you in the ass. These could just be online maps or maybe 1 story part and 3 online map packs, hard to say, but not worth paying that much for so little.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Ugh man, I'm so conflicted on that spend $100, get $20 credit deal for Oct on the PS Store. On the one hand, there is definitely $100 worth of games on the PS Store that I would like to get and haven't gotten yet because I don't think I'd play them immediately and keep hoping there will be a sale. Plus with Okami HD coming out at the end of Oct, it would be awesome to grab that since I've only played it with the fucking horrible drawing control port to motion controls on the Wii but loved the game otherwise. And I've played the PS2 version on my friend's post-game save file so I know that the original controls are WAY better than the motion controls, which made the game so much more enjoyable without getting frustrated with it for interpreting the wrong drawing or no drawing at all. :)

On the other hand, money is getting tighter and tighter, which I don't see changing anytime soon. So while I could easily afford to drop the $100 this month, that may put me $100 closer to be dead broke in 6 months or so if things don't change. :cry: Man I don't know what to do but knowing me, I'll probably spend the money anyway. :fridge:

Unless you have a major purchase to make, like $50 to renew PS+, I don't think it's all that great of a deal. Anyone with a backlog (like me) would be well served to just wait for the games to be half off (or maybe even free), since this is basically just a 20% off deal. Because of my backlog, I never let myself buy anything for just 20% off unless I know it will play it right away.

Has anyone here used the data transfer utility and ethernet cable with two ps3s? It has taken me 12 hrs so far and the status bar shows 83%. That's messed up. I'm only transferring about 110 gb to a new 160 gb ps3.

You should be safe if you just leave it running. The PS3 uses 5400 RPM hard drives which can be painfully slow. It might not only be transferring your software but also going through the process of installing it as well which would only add to the amount of time.

I bought it to support the game since the Wii release sold so poorly, and to support this kind of game on Vita. However, I'm also inadvertently supporting horrendously high prices. Pretty ridiculous.

It definitely takes forever, the estimate is usually way off. When I transferred my stuff from my Phat over to my Slim I thought it was stuck since it stayed at 86% for a long time, but then it shot up to 92%.

The estimate to get 60ish GB transferred was supposedly 1hr 40m but it ended up taking like 3hrs. So yeah just leave it on for awhile.
