I love kart racers and already have ModNation Racers on disc. I was thinking of getting LBPK so when I take my PS3 over to a friend's house I won't have to remember to bring the disc too.

Can anyone compare the two games? They both come from Sony so I was wondering if the mechanics are the same and the differences come in the cosmetics? I wouldn't mind getting rid of MNR if LBPK is just as good or better.

I've been trying to stay away from getting more downloadable games since splurging on 360 titles during the holidays, but some of these deals are too good to pass up. I'm definitely getting Nights since I loved playing it on the Saturn back in the day. I'm planning on getting at least one more game to pair up with it, but I may just decide to spend $10 and get 4 games total:

Machinarium - I could go for a good point and click adventure game. I heard this one is short, but it shouldn't be an issue since it only costs $2.49, correct?

Warp - Seems like a fun puzzle game. Has anyone played this yet, and would you recommend it?

Pyschonauts - I used to have the PS2 version but never got around to playing it. I know that the Xbox version was superior, so I'm wondering if it's worth getting it on the PS3. I'm interested in knowing how well it runs and plays. $2.49 for this game seems like a steal, but I'd like to get impressions from those who've actually played it on the PS3. It seems like this game just became available for download because I can't find any impressions of it through Google.

Thanks for the input guys.

Boy am I glad I didn't pay for Foosball. Retro City Rampage would have been worth the $ but you can't beat free.

Maybe PS4 integration is why we aren't hearing of any releases far off into the future -- Sony doesn't want companies announcing games and accidentally mentioning something about the PS4 until the system is officially unveiled.


I sure hope it is somehow related, but I fear it is not. My hope is not as much for integration but more for companion type games (not necessarily the same game). For example, if the launch PS4 will have God of War and Infamous titles, maybe they don't want to reveal those Vita versions until the the other versions are officially announced with the PS4 announcement. Wishful thinking, I know...

Bought a bunch of stuff from the sale. Nabbed Machinarium, Warp, HotD:O and Unfinished Swan. Glad I took a chance on Warp... it's the most fun I've had with a PSN game in a long time. Highly recommended! Go... buy Warp now!

And yes... Foosball is terrible.

What happens between now and the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season will determine whether or not I decide to get a Vita. The same applies to the Wii U although Nintendo's recent announcement has more or less solidified the likelihood I'll be purchasing a Wii U on Black Friday.

I think there are plenty of valid reasons to get a Vita now, although I wouldn't blame anyone for waiting for a price-cut at this point. There are a good number of excellent titles. Personally, I don't need a huge slew of new releases since Vita is only one of a few different platforms I play and the current library can keep me busy enough. I do want Sony to have more releases for the health of the platform, though.

I don't need a slew of new titles either given the fact that my PS+ membership will net me more than enough titles to play initially after I buy the system. I would just rather not by the Vita if it's dead by the end of the year.

As for my question regarding the 13 for 13' sale, I've decided to buy Nights, Warp, Machinarium and Pyschonauts. I'm still somewhat on the fence about Psychonauts, so hopefully, those that download the game can give their impressions on whether or not it was worth the purchase.

Pretty much all news of any new releases for Sony or Microsoft consoles have dried up as far as the Fall/Holiday season is concerned. Splinter Cell is the last release (August) that isn't just a vague TBA 2013.

As soon as they decide to announce we should see a flood of new titles being announced. Just a waiting game for who announces first. (GDC in March? E3 in June is pushing it. TGS in September is too late.)

WiiU is also lacking in a definitive list of upcoming titles, most likely thanks to companies having to hold out on their own announcements until the other two consoles are official.

I'm pretty interested in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD for the Vita even if the discount is only gonna be 25%. I just wish it had cross-buy :(

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.

The Crysis 3 beta will be out next week:

Hey PlayStation Nation! We’re a few weeks away from the release of Crysis 3, the premier sandbox shooter of 2013. In order to give those fans that can’t wait any longer a preview of what’s to come, we’re launching a worldwide cross-console beta. The Crysis 3 beta will be available for download on PlayStation Network on Tuesday, January 29th and lasting until February 12th. Get ready to suit up!

The beta is designed to give you a taste of the full Crysis 3 multiplayer experience, and help the development team collect your feedback. Read on for answers to some common questions regarding the Crysis 3 Beta, and for more information visit www.crysis.com.

What modes will be playable in the beta?

Hunter Mode: This multiplayer game mode is all about survival of the fittest. There are two teams, initially comprised of two permanently cloaked “Hunters”, and up to 14 CELL troopers awaiting extraction. Each trooper slain respawns on the Hunter team to prey on their former allies, building to a frenetic climax. If any of the troopers survive the round, the hunters lose. Whichever way you play, Hunter Mode delivers a heart-pounding test of strategy and survival.

Crash Site Mode: This multiplayer game mode is the ultimate King of the Hill-type experience. An Alien dropship deploys a pod at random around the map. Players on each team must remain near the dropped pod in order to capture the zone and accumulate points. Each alien pod holds two shields players can utilize defensively as weapons. In addition, each Crash Site map will have a “Pinger,” a CEPH-constructed walking weapon of mass destruction. But be careful: other players can hijack the Pinger while you’re inside!

What maps will come with the beta?

Museum: Roam the dark Ruins of Museum in downtown Manhattan and use the verticality to your advantage.
Airport: Close to the financial district, nature has taken over buildings and planes in this open fields area.
The full game has 10 more maps and six more game modes that are not to be found in the Open Beta.

How do I install the Open Beta on PS3?

The Open Beta will be located for download and installation on PSN in the demos section.

Where do I go if I have a problem, comment, or question?

The Crysis 3 forum at MyCrysis.com is your first stop. There will be threads for each problem as well as for comments; please post in the correct forums. You may find the answer to your problem already posted by someone else in the community or answered by one of the developers. When posting a new problem, please include as much detailed information as possible in order to help us understand the issue and resolve it.

What state is the game in? How close to final is the code I am looking at?

This is an Open Beta, which means most areas of the game are nearly complete; however, we are still looking at balance and polish. Feedback is always welcome.

Do my comments about balance or gameplay matter?

Absolutely. We will read every post. Keep it constructive and keep it civil, but keep it coming!

Is there single-player content in the Open Beta?

No, the Open Beta is only multiplayer content. The goal of the Open Beta is to serve as a final testing of the game’s backbone and features, and to give fans and the curious out there a chance to play the game before it is released.

psychonauts download was awesome. Plays just like the ps2 copy to me. I'm sure the ending is still crazy frustrating, but I've enjoyed playing some psychonauts again.

Isn't there a way to add specific amounts beyond $5 to my PSN account? I thought I read somewhere that you have to add a minimum of $5 when you add funds to your account but that you could pick a specific amount beyond the $5 threshold. It looks like I'm getting three $2.50 games for sure (Nights, Warp, Machinarium) and possibly either Psychonauts or the Unfinished Swan. My total cost is either going to be $7.50, $10 or $11.25. I currently have a balance of $0.35 in my wallet, so I'd like to be able to add $7.15, $9.65 or $10.90 to my wallet so that I end up with $0 in my wallet after my purchases. Is it possible to do this? It doesn't appear that you can do this via SEN, but can you do this by adding funds via PSN? Thanks.

Aha! Thanks. Does anyone know if PayPal is available/working when you add funds via PSN? Also, I need help choosing between Psychonauts and the Unfinished Swan. I know that both offer unique experiences, and it appears that Psychonauts probably provides more bang for my buck. However, the uniqueness of the Unfinished Swan has me intrigued...

If you just go straight to your cart and hit purchase, it'll add the specific amount you need, as long as it's over 5 dollars, which in this case it is. I bought $17.50 worth of items and had 2 bucks left in my account and just hit purchase and it took out exactly $15.50 from my card so I didn't have to add $20.

Psychonauts is one of my favorite games of all time. It's got some clunky level design and the platforming isn't as tight as it could be, but the story and characters are fantastic and the writing is top-notch. If you've never played it, I'd go for that. At the same time, it's regularly this cheap on Steam, and in a better edition as it were; if that's an option I'd just wait and snag it for PC at some point in the future.

I'm not a PC gamer, so I have to get it for either the PS3 or 360. I know the Xbox version of Pyschonauts is better. I just don't know how realistic it is to expect that it would drop to 200 points at some point in the future.
