Ugh, I bought Jet Set Radio last month for 7 bucks. I knew the price would go lower than that eventually, but not this soon.

Still waiting on Sonic 4 Episode II to hit $5-7.


I'm also waiting for a similar price on Sonic 4 Episode II. Here's to hoping. Glad I never jumped on the Jak HD collection seeing as how Precursor's is the only one I was super interested in. I never played 3 but if it was just more of 2, I don't think I missed too horribly much.

...but...but... 3 > 2 > 1. One of the few series that got better with each entry.

The release announcement PR mentions a digital discount for the PSN version of Ni No Kuni:

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is available now; exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system in North America and Latin America with both English and Japanese voiceovers included. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is available for purchase at video game retailers nationwide for a MSRP of $59.99 for the packaged version or $54.99 for the digital version available via download on the PlayStation Network. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch carries an ESRB rating of ”E10+” for Everyone 10+.

Surprising move for Namco.

There should be no weekly preparation when you expect traffic spikes on the same day each week. It is extremely clear that the SEN team is extremely inefficient, understaffed, or both.

Its not like this is a rare occurrence for them

I kinda wanted to get tiger woods also but then I saw a review that said that nearly half the courses are locked and you have to pay to unlock them. Buying the courses(dlc) apparently doesn't even unlock them forever. Just for a certain amount of rounds.


To clarify (based on what reviews say) you can unlock the courses permanently. But it involves completing a high number of "challenges" such as hitting the fairway X number of times or getting a birdie Y number of times, all of which have to be completed on the course you wish to unlock. So you have to earn enough coins/XP to give you temporary access to the course enough times that you are able to complete the challenges to gain permament access. (or just buy the damn things since that appears to be what they actually want you to do.)

So yeah, not doing that. It's like locking out half of the NFL teams in Madden and making me play for hours just for the opportunity to unlock the team I want.

Hot Shots Golf it is!

PS: I believe it's 20 out of 36 courses in Tiger Woods 13 are locked.

Not the best place to ask, but I might have a better chance at an answer here.

I just got my new super slim ps3 today and I'm wondering if I can just plug my old slim ps3 AC adapter into it instead of having to go behind my entertainment center to switch the wires.

The cables look the same so I'm thinking its fine but I just want to make sure.

Wow! That is a shocking. Why don't companies get that this is how you encourage digital purchases?! This is how you thwart used game sales. Even if it is just a negligible discount.

Ehhh idk man, perhaps it was the fact that 2 was such a departure from 1 but it didn't sit well with me. The first one was, in my opinion, one of the last great platformers. Well aware they were going the way of the dodo, but that didn't keep me from wanting more.

If the discount on the PSN version of Ni No Kuni was $49.99, I'd buy it. But it's a start, I suppose.

If they came out and said $49.99 imagine just how many more sales they would get. $5 is still good, but I'm personally going to try to wait for a sale on retail, but will probably end up getting it for MSRP on retail just because it seems to be that kind of game deserving of a case and what not.

Edit: The post above me is even more proof of my above statement.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

This is my biggest gripe with playstation. I only really use it for exclusives and playing blu rays and it seems like every time I turn it on there's an update to apply .. And the installation method for these games is unbelievable. My library is 1/10th that of my Xbox library and it takes up more space!

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I had to search for the games manually, but they were up for me (LBP Karting and The Unfinished Swan).

Ahhh, what? I have to disagree, 2 blew bad. You couldn't even check your orbs collected stat, per location. Way too many (story) missions fail because of dumb luck, 5-15 retries were common. I liked 1 better because it was adventure-platforming. 2 was weapon-crap with bogus missions and a dumb GTA city knock off. 3 was merely ok, but the vehicles pulled it down again, imo.

Now if you were talking about R&C series, I could see that.

This exactly.

Also I just dropped $35 on the 13 for 13 sale. Got everything but Tiger Woods, J&D (already own), R&C (want all 3 on disc), and HOTD (already own).

The only thing stopping me from buying LBP Karting is that it could be a free PSN Plus game at some point.
