Since when does BB sell $10 cards??



and bump a thread that's months old?


My Best Buy has been selling them for a few years. It's the only BM that I know of that sells them, every other store I go to only has $20/50 cards.

lol, really? People can't just like the game? If anything, The Walking Dead holds the distinction for the title awarded most "GOTYs". I'm assuming that's press groupthink as well? Gaming is no longer the monolith it was 20 years ago, so judging Journey by the same standards you would [insert game] is stupid.

That said, I'm not a fan either of the games with little to no game play (recently wrote a blog here about it), but i don't think Journey falls into that category.

I read quotes like that and I wonder if they played the same game as me. How did I totally miss this deeply emotional experience? Someone tell The Wizard to give me a heart.

I thought you wrote for a site, so I assumed you have been there. Anyway, now that I am not on my phone, I guess I will explain this in a little more detail.

I do, but that doesn't mean that I visit/use that site. I haven't seen the site in years and it was what a gaming version of Digg would look like when console warriors decided what was bumped up back then.

Hmmm.... my long ass post was deleted... that is quite unfortunate (thought this was an open minded forum). All i wanted to say is The Walking Dead belongs to an old school genre, one that many of you may not enjoy. That is perfectly fine, enjoy your own genres and their specific games. The Walking Dead promises a great amount of adventure games to follow its success and that is amazing news for us fans of that genre.

Is that The Cave as in the Telltale Double Fine game? If so I had no idea it was coming out so soon. Awesome.

And Journey + The Walking Dead are both amazing games. 2 of the best I've played in 25 years of gaming. Just to add my 2 cents. Yeah some of those Journey quotes are really pushing it, and I had no such feelings. Though I did play through the (very short) game 3 times in a row which is something I've never done before.

If you play a game, and give it your best shot, and don't like it and I can understand your reasons for not liking it, it's fine. But for some, it's the fox and the grapes thing. They play the game, they suck at the game, so they say "well I didn't want that game anyway, it sucks". Do you happen to have a link to that review? I am curious if it is the former or the latter.

My favorite Souls "I am sucking so this is bad" quote is this one.

President of Sony's worldwide studios, Shuhei Yoshida, explains why Sony passed on publishing Demon's Souls in the USA

For my personal experience with Demon’s Souls, when it was close to final I spent close to two hours playing it and after two hours I was still standing at the beginning at the game. I said, “This is crap. This is an unbelievably bad game.” So I put it aside.

I like reviews where they said the game was too hard and then later on they say all they did was button mash.

I agree with those who said that while having your own opinion on a game is obviously totally cool, branding all of those who do/don't like said game as (fill in the blank) is silly. I also find it unlikely that a sizable portion of the gaming population pretends to like games that they secretly abhor in order to look smart or cultured. And I thought I was cynical!

You question phrased "game journalists" as a hive mind that picked Journey to be the universal Game of the Year even though it's been all over the place.


Exactly. Look at Game Informer, for example. They had Mass Effect 3 selected as "Game of the Year", but they also published top ten lists of each of the twenty or so staff members involved in voting. Each one was widely varied and a few of the staff members didn't even have Mass Effect 3 on their top ten lists at all. So even if IGN or somebody gives a game Game of the Year as an organization, that doesn't mean everybody on staff loved it and agrees. I'm not sure if people really believe that or if they just pretend to because it makes it easier for them to frame their arguments in a certain way (ie "Everybody loved/hated x game").

I still have to do the Beat School levels and the majority of these Death Mode levels. What is there to the Beat School levels? Is it pretty much beat the Death Mode levels and the platinum is yours?

Tried logging and in it said PSN is under maintenance.

Kind of glad I didn't buy up all those $0.99 games. Was disappointed that I missed out on the $0.99 sale.

Then, I found out that there is going to be a 75% off sale for PS+. Hopefully, my subscription to PS+ hasn't run out, by the time this sale is running.

Orgarhythm - Vita - $19.99 - Permanent Price Drop
Rayman Origins - Vita - $26.99 - Permanent Price Drop
Sumioni: Demon Arts - Vita - $14.99 - Permanent Price Drop


What's up with the pricing for Dungeon Hunter Vita when the PS3 version was on sale for .99 cents?!? I know it might be a reach to be comparing the PSN pricing with iOS or Google Play pricing but Vita owners are taking it hard on this one with a $25 price gap for the same game on the same network. Gameloft FTL.
