Any TurboGrafx-16 sales going on???

Anyway, I think we can all agree that Xbox and PSN sales are compete and utter shit compared to Steam sales.


Too bad you have to buy a new video card every 18 months to save all that cash. ;)

Is trails HD a really hard and frustrating game? I would like to give the series a try and for 400 msp, it sounds like a good deal.

I haven't played it much. But, for 400 Space Bucks, you will get fun out of it.

Not this year. I don't think any of the big three are really providing us with jaw-dropping sales. There have been some good deals here and there, but nothing that completely outshines the competition.

the later levels start to get frustrating but I am not the best at the physics type games. There is still a lot in the beginning to have fun with and most likely you will have enough fun to justify 400 points even if you never finish.

If you dont buy Trials HD or Evo, sell your xbox.


I would rather them be PS exclusives so I wouldn't have to hear anyone in this thread mention them again. :booty:

Personally I've loved this sale, I ended up picking up Deadlight, Dust, Trials Evo + DLC, Serious Sam 3 + DLC, THPS, Trine 2, Hell Yeah, Mark of the Ninja and I'm still contemplating a couple others. Now if I can only find the time to play them all.

On a side note, does anyone else feel like they've become a digital hoarder? Cause I think I might have a problem.

Feels dumb to complain about Trials Evo being 800 instead of 600, because I know it's worth it, but it still bothers me lol.

Well, Fuck. That screws up my plans for the Walking Dead stuff then, even if they do end up at half off each. :/ Someone convince me to buy Trials Evo. I downloaded Trials HD a while back and only played the first few levels. It seems like it could be fun, but is there something I didn't get into that makes it the really great game people praise all the time?


It's just a really, really awesome physic game. If you don't get the fun of it by the time you play a few levels, it's probably not for you.

So, to try to get back onto topic, did anybody that bought Deadlight regret it or are you enjoying? Heard it was short. Just looking for some opinions of cags.

My review points out the highs and lows

http://panicgamer.co...view-deadlight/

First 1/3rd? Fantastic
Last 2/3rds? Ehhh to bah!

Fast out of the gate and then fizzles out

It's short, especially if you're not looking for secrets, like amazingly short

The Radeon 5770 will never go obsolete, at least that's what it feels like this generation. You're still running everything better than a PS3 or Xbox 360 can as long as its not a shitty port.

ANY of the disc-based Tony Hawk games (on gamepad, at least) will run at 1080p & give more satisfaction!


What the Fuck is this worthless list supposed to do???? I had no idea which game to buy since they're not sorted by Metacritic score!!! I bought THPSHD thinking it was the best because you put it on top! and in red!!!! :oldman: :oldman: !!!

Evolution is a better introduction for newbies than HD is. They do a much better job of easing you into it along with the general level design and addition of humorous ways to end levels making it a more enjoyable game from beginning to end.

if you can, save up and get Trials Evolution. Trials HD is great but it's extremely, extremely, extremely difficult with a very very very steep learning curve. A lot of people don't even get through 1/3 of the game because it's difficult. Plus, Trials Evolution has taken everything that was good with HD and made it so much better. It's much more fun. There's lots of free content. There's online and local multiplayer. You're no longer stuck in a drab warehouse. And its difficulty curve is much flatter. If you want the sadistic levels, you still have them but you can enjoy a lot more of the game before giving up than in HD.

I think if you start off with HD and hate it, you won't go on to the much better Evolution. It's like people who hate Assassin's Creed 1 and won't go further to AC2 and others.

Grabbed dust and deadlight. Deadlight seemed interesting in the demo and wanted to see the ending. I haven't even tried trials hd in the limbo 3 pack so I am probably gonna pass on evo.

It occured to me that spending points instead of actual money on games seems to make it feel cheaper than it is, even though I paid money for the points. Makes impulse buy a bit easier, even for a noob xbla gamer.

Bought Deadlight over Dust. Not that wouldn't like to play it, just not anytime soon.

I never understood the high praise of Trials. Oh well.

Decided to get Trials Evolution: Origin of Pain DLC. Even with the amount of user content I'm personally curious as to what the pack entails, especially with a near 1GB size.

This is exactly how I felt playing Trials HD.
It's a great game no doubt, however, as the difficulty increased, it became frustrating to play. I know I can't say this for everyone. There are people who are able to master the game's mechanics however, for those who couldn't like myself, ended up quitting the game altogether. I'd say I only played 1/3 of the game before it got increasingly difficult for me to finish a level which I hated.
800 points is good enough of a price for Evo. heck 1200 is good too, but with Far Cry 3, Dust, Ninja to keep me occupied for a good while, I can contain myself from buying Evo at least until it goes down to 600.

Is there a place where you can buy 100 Microsoft points digitally? Don't want to shell out for another 400 to get a 600 point game.

I've know that for months, which is why I passed on the platformers. I keep buying them and never playing them.

Plus Xbox Live Rewards shows the average Live purchases over the last six months I believe and my own....not even close....like three times more. Makes me feel guilty for spending so much on my gaming addition.

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I don't see what the problem is with Playstation Store post. The format seems fine to me. I think I'm going to grab Dust before it's deal is over.

Oh crap! Theyre catching on to us! The smoke and mirrors are failing us!!

It's the same reasoning behind poker chips in casinos. A chip is a lot easier to throw down than a $20 bill.

I tried to look at the PSN deal thread when I first snagged my PS3, and I... turned around and left. I really wish I could provide some meaningful insight and advice, but almost all I can say is that it just feels so bland compared to "our" OP. While it could certainly use some streamlining and perhaps a little trimming here and there, I like that the XBL deal OP uses a wide variety of fonts and colors and usually manages to do so without feeling like a turn-of-the-century Angelfire abortion. It's easy to skim the post and quickly focus on the info you're looking for without getting lost in a sea of text.

Also, I'll second the suggestion that the sale prices for PS+ and normal PSN should be side-by-side, though at a quick glance it looks like you've partially implemented this idea, at least toward the bottom.
