Another free Vita game is all I needed to make this week worth it. Yay for Ninja Gaiden. Haven't played any of the newer games outside of the DS game.

After watching a bunch of video reviews of LBP karting, I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger. Freezes, so-so gameplay, poor online multiplayer integration, poor create mode tutorial, still lack of cross-DLC costume inclusion, and that it dropped 75% in 2 months makes me think its going to get dropped like Modnation racers. Or are ALL the reviews just overly critical?


I know this is old news now (I assume the sale is over), but just a few responses to this: my son and I have played the game quite a bit since early January. I don't think we've seen more than maybe 1 freeze (if that) and the online multiplayer is pretty much just like in LBP. And the cross-game DLC costume inclusion is supposedly coming with a patch at some point.

It was a blast to play through. As someone constantly fighting the backlog problem (with less and less free time) I can really enjoy a short game that I felt was a good experience. I don't need to grind out 200+ hours to feel like I got value out of my purchase. The 7 hours I put into Swan's 100% was a great time. (Except trying to find the balloons in the dark... that just got annoying)


So, did you 100% the trophies, or just the balloon collection? Because I don't see how it is possible to get through that first section with just 3 paint blobs (which is one of the trophies).

I love how the first response to 'should I get this game' is always 'try the demo' but everyone that talks about demos says they don't do the game justice...

It all depends on the game. Not every situation or game is the same. One can get a really good feel for a game based on the demo. And in other cases, not so much.

I'm surprised the big addition was NG for Vita. No big freebie on PS3. Not complaining, though...PS+ is awesome regardless.

The Minimalist trophy is easily the hardest in the game, took me about 6 tries to get it. But otherwise, the rest of it isn't too bad, especially if you have a guide.

Also, was I the only one creeped out by that sudden change in mood at the first 2 stages of the 3rd world?

This is absolutely where I'm at now, too. I hate it because I love the idea of these huge, involved RPG worlds where I can get lost. But I don't have the kind of free time I did when I was a kid. I can't get more than a few hours a day on a good day, and I can't play one game across 2 months and stay invested. Stuff like Journey, Unfinished Swan, and Papo y Yo are bite sized, one-night projects that are perfect for me. The artistic merit and interesting themes are another draw. And when I have an empty weekend sometimes I can spice it up with a 10-15hr shooter or action game.

But man, I do miss my oldschool RPG addictions.



I agree with all of this, every last bit and it makes me sad. Being a real life adult really sucks sometimes.:-({|=

Happy to snag Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus and Madden NFL 13 Vita (not a great price and the game is a bit gimped but I can't help myself). Bummed no Ratchet and Clank: FFA Vita as scheduled though.

Hadn't heard before (and I know they've been cheaper) but Assassin's Creed II Ultimate ($9.99), AC: Brotherhood Ultimate ($13.99) and AC: Revelations Ultimate ($24.99) are all on sale too.

Bayonetta yes


Patched to be better than at release, yes. Patched to be the same as the 360 version, no.

There's still some slowdowns, and some QTEs show up later than on the 360 version, for example.

I've never played a fishing game before, but I'm tempted by Let's Fish. Just seems like a kind of game more suited to a handheld imo.

I did indeed 100%.

That's not the video I used. I actually made it all the way to the golden crown without any help. The hard part was that ramp with a little gap you can fall through. I kept trying to make it up and always fell at the same spot. So I had to figure out why I was having trouble. (Trick is to listen to the sound of your movement and after gold starts showing up use it to silhouette the rest of the room.) After I figured out that one part the rest was easy.

Just in case you forgot, Cubixx is the free PSM game for the next week:

Dammit why can't Madden be that price on 360 GoD, all of the UTM cards I got from when I rented it (bunch of bonus cards for having played older Maddens) are on the 360 version.
