I'm torn on Prototype 2. I've got a $10.00 credit from Max Payne 3, but I haven't heard much in the way of praise for Prototype 2.


And those lightning deals suck. I had to do it. I'm sorry.

I can't remember the last time I snagged one of those "video game" lightning deals... It seems that since Black Friday all my video game purchases came from Best Buy or Newegg.

Prototype 2 isn't a bad game. It can occupy your time if you look to do 100% of the side missions and such but it isn't very challenging. Also there is a new game plus mode that lets your port over all of your advancements/skills while letting you scale the difficulty to higher settings. I think I managed to beat the game on new game plus in less than a day though.

I would wait until under $10. The story mode it pitifully short(under 3 hours) and most of the challenges have you go back over the same areas from the story mode just to unlock more characters.


From what I've seen of it, it's basically Dynasty Warriors set in the Bleach universe, right? If that's the case, the story is *always* short in those games because just playing through it once isn't really the point. But maybe this is different and I've misunderstood what the game is about.

I still wonder why NIS changed the Bleach game's name to Soul Resurreccion, Soul Ignition was so much better sounding. And also why they changed the SID intro song to some generic instrumental that kinda sounds like the SID song towards the end. You'd expect better from a company like NIS that specializes in localizing Japanese games.

I might bite on it at $20 or less though, but after seeing gameplay videos it looks to be the tenkaichi of Bleach games, I'm a bit worried.


I find it extremely addicting and fun. It's a Dynasty Warriors type game, mindless action. I found the leveling up system interesting. The gameplay is basically the same for the entire game, but each character has their own style. If you wanted to Platinum it, it would probably take 100+ hours. I bought it for $35 and I think $20 or less would be a great price, if you're a Bleach fan.

According to The Digital Foundry (See my sig) the Playstation 3 version is the one to get.

Disgaea 4 could be a good deal. It is currently listed as $39, and I don't think the premium edition has been lower.

Awesome deal, just picked it up at about 22 dollars after tax and free super saver shipping, I used the $10 gc promo from amazons livingsocial (I think?) deal of the day to turn $5 to $10 awhile back. and made sure to charge the rest to my playstation credit card by capital one to earn me some bonus points for stuff hopefully. can't pass up $30 (I thought it was only going to $40 at BB and stuff), when it's still $60 other places.

Now I'm thinking should I get Prototype 2 from Amazon for $30, or should I try to get Walmart to PM Bestbuy and get Prototype 2, which includes code to download the first Prototype, for about $44 after tax.

Does the first Prototype worth $14?

There's no story in Prototype, the controls are a bit wonky, and the final boss battle is frustrating as hell. That said, I'd spend fifteen dollars to get it.

And the Tenkaichi of Bleach games is without a doubt, Bleach Heat the Soul. It's a Japan Only game but if you watched the anime, you will be right at home with the last game they made (HtS 7 - yes, they made seven frickin' games).


When I said Tenkaichi , I meant that in a bad way. Those Tenkaichi games with the behind the back view are complete garbage to me. I only like the Dimps DBZ games like Budokai 3 and Burst Limit. And I'm very well aware of the Heat the Soul games, they're more like the Dimps DBZ games than Tenkaichi, which is probably why I like them despite their low frame rate.
