I'm not saying the cost for the licenses is unrealistic or surprising or anything, I'm saying that it being a kickstarter is a bit weird. I didn't think there'd be much interest in people supporting/pledging that.

Gotcha now. The thing is that Kickstarter gives them the option of letting the community help them get the licenses sorted out instead of it not happening and that being the end of it like it used to be.

They've already passed 10% on the first day, so I could see it making it by the end. The notion that surpassing the goal would be the first step to help them get some of the other expensive licenses should help.

The Twilight Zone Kickstarter has reached $11k, so that's 20% of the way there on its first day. They mention in the Q&A section that Star Trek: TNG would be about another $55k on top since it comes from the same company as Twilight Zone.

Also, Joystiq seems to confirm the $5 price tag for each of the Sega Vintage Collection games coming in the next weeks to PSN.

http://www.joystiq.c...-on-psn-and-xb/

Smart money says grab them on XBLA if you can.

Even smarter money says just wait, as Sega has been a major contributor to PS+ and I could definitely see these showing up as freebies in the near future.

Just my thoughts tho.

im allowed to have all items except avatars used by all accounts on 2 systems, online passes, add ons, themes, full games, etc. but I heard this is the one PSN game that doesn't let you play on another system for an hour after being on another one, or something.... and if psn is down or your internet isnt connected you can't play it at all.

Yeah, I bought it when it went on sale about 2 weeks before PSN went down last year. I wasn't too happy about that.

It's actually 24 hours that you can't play it with the same account on a different system.
Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 and some of the very first PS3 Full Games (Warhawk and I think GT5 Prologue) also have online DRM.

okay, might just be outland for me then. I liked final fight in the arcade growing up but I got the free streets of rage with PS+ and they are basically the same. Not to mention Magic Sword seems pretty wonky....

Not to mention all of these "arcade" games don't penalize you for using 1,000 continues to powerhouse through the entire game, which is why X-Men arcade was ruined for me. So easy to just spam special moves and keep respawning.

Oh and boycotting DRM is good, even if it is a bargain. lookin at you diablo 3!

I play a little bit of the demo, and it was quite enjoyable.
Just hope the game isn't so difficult that'll get frustrated with it.

I don't understand complaints like this. It's like people who complain that you can sneak through a whole game or do an overpowered combo the whole game and breeze through it and therefore, it was ruined for you. If it ruins the game for you, don't do it. If you think using 1,000 continues ruins the game for you, limit yourself to three or whatever.

One of the later bosses and the very last boss were pretty tough for me. It's a great platformer.

I just beat the first boss and so far the game has the perfect amount of challenge. It isn't too hard, but if there is a difficult part there are plenty of check points and places to get life so it is fairly forgiving so far. I say give it a shot!

I don't see much love for Trine 2, which I would actually say is my favorite free title to date. That game is just incredible to me and could have been a full retail title in my opinion. I've probably enjoyed it at least as much as anything else on PSN.

The controls are kind of wonky at first but start to feel more intuitive with time. The combination of the fantasy setting, interesting puzzles that have several solutions, and platforming that requires on-the-fly character switching is just top-notch. The art direction also has to be one of if not the best I've seen. The cherry on top is it is full of gold trophies and even a platinum. Just a fantastic game.

Not far, still in ancient Greece [Rock of Ages sic].

^There was lots of praise for it and it's predecessor right when it was announced for free for PS+.

Yeah, everyone seems to love trine 2. Trine 1 was actually the 1st psn game I bought right after I got my ps3. Still a favorite as well.

The Twilight Zone Kickstarter has reached $11k, so that's 20% of the way there on its first day. They mention in the Q&A section that Star Trek: TNG would be about another $55k on top since it comes from the same company as Twilight Zone.

Hey Frisky, you should add GT Academy to the op. It is free for all ps3 owners (plus not required). You don't have to own GT5 at all. You get the chance to become a real race car driver. Also, all you need to do is win gold in each of the five sections of each round (round 1-4 is currently available) and you get a FREE GT Academy dlc car for each round. The car is essentially a limited edition stealth model with GT Academy livery. So at the end of Academy 2012 (ends in June) you essentially get a FREE dlc pack of GT Academy cars.

The whole thing is really fun. So far the rounds consist of a mix of time trials and GT "license" type levels with racing at the later sections of the round. I just think people will miss out and not see it in the psn store. Not only that, but it is a bit mislabeled as "GT Academy 2012 demo." It isn't a demo at all. Everyone gets the full package!

In order to find your brother, you’ll have to contend with the evil Janken the Great, who will send his henchmen and monsters at you to thwart your progress. One aspect of this adventure is that you’ll have to play the classic game of “rock, paper, scissors” against the henchmen in order to defeat them. With 16 different levels to conquer in order to save Egle, this classic is sure to test your skills and your wits at the same time.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock – In Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, play as the Doctor and River Song as they race to save the universe and time itself.

Enter a race against the clock or match-up with computer opponents in this high-octane experience.

The Revenge of Shinobi – When the Neo Zeed capture your sweetheart, you’re in for the adventure of a lifetime. You’re Musashi, a mystical warrior who sees and knows all. Using a ninja sword and shurikens, you’ll hunt down your nemeses and enter a fight to the death. Hurl knives, ward off bullets, avoid death stars, and more in this epic rescue journey. Your trip will not be an easy one: Musclemen, Kung Fu gangs, and armies will attack you over the course of 24 levels making for a deeply challenging game.

Wonder Boy In Monster Land – After the defeat of the evil king, the kingdom of Wonder Land was a paradise … for a time. The peace was broken when a ferocious, fire-breathing dragon struck without warning and took over Wonder Land with a swarm of evil, monstrous henchmen, turning the once-peaceful land into the utterly chaotic Monster Land. Unable to fight, the people now look to Wonder Boy. Realizing that he is Wonder Land’s last hope, Wonder Boy sets out on an incredible journey to rid the country of the monsters and defeat the “invincible” evil dragon. Guide Wonder Boy through various environments and dungeons, and defeat enemies using Special Weapons and Spells.

Wonder Boy In Monster World – Monster World was a peaceful, happy place until one dark day when an army of BioMeka monsters invaded. Playing as a young man named Shion, gamers vow to defeat the hostile foes and make the land peaceful again. Attack enemies with swords and spears and guard against incoming projectiles with shields and armor. Travel through the many different regions of Monster World and talk to the townspeople, collect money to buy items, and gather a large variety of weapons and magic. As players progress, the weapons and equipment become more powerful, including suits of armor and boots.

I haven't seen any pricing for Dr. Who, but the physical, British-only version is 18 pounds. Yikes. I'm going to guess $20 for us in the States. About $10 too much for a game featuring River Song (bleh).

Edit: it has a platinum trophy (http://www.ps3trophi...rophy-list.html), so it may be even more than $20. Maybe that's why they've been so reluctant to release pricing info.

Not added game content, btu there are a few things lacking even. You could unlock the original 2 games in the Xbox version and a 3D remake of the first level (What PoP Classic is based on) and none of that is in there. Also, there were a few bonus levels in the Gamecube version if you connected it to the GBA version. Those aren't in either, I believe.
