Has anyone seen/heard any actual reviews of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time? I'm surprised and somewhat concerned that a game of such seemingly high profile has such a late embargo time and date for reviews.


I'm surprised as well. Still excited for it, though.

That is awesome we got the lotr game for free. Guess ill wait a few more weeks to do that euro ps+ cuz guardians was the only game i wanted to try out. This fits their model tho of giving dlc heavy games for free. This was 15 to buy, 15 for season pass dlc, right? I loved awesomenauts so this should be fun too. Still thinking bout those discounted games tho. Peace all and Thanks

It's the norm nowadays. Still it's pretty annoying. Nothing for Dead Space 3 yet either which also releases tomorrow. Just means I won't be buying either of them new.

Reviews for Big Sky Infinity make it sound like its worth $6. Discounted PSN games have been the only thing keeping my Vita in use these days, which isn't a complaint exactly because there have been some quality releases (esp with PS+ discounts). Can anyone vouch for it?

There are a few Dead Space 3 reviews floating around at least such as:
http://www.ausgamers...space-3/review/ and
http://multiplayer.i...gli-incubi.html (warning, in Italian)
that give some positive vibes. Sly reviews are just as absent as Ratchet and Clank Vita so far... (zing!)

Perfect sort of game for a PS Plus freebie : interesting enough to be excited to try once it's free, but not enough for me to have already bought it.
And new enough to have not gone on sale anywhere yet.

It seems as though embargos tend to get lifted early when there are really good reviews. I'm sure the publisher likes to do that to drum up more interest since there would be little downside. This has me thinking that Sly and Dead Space may review ok, but not great.

Some of the passive mentions in different podcasts seems to be positive for both games, though - especially Sly.

Weird, I've never even heard of Karateka. When did it release? I'm indifferent on the LOTR game being free. I probably won't play it for a while and I'd rather play a MOBA on PC anyway, but it's something new so I'm not going to complain.

It seems like they really don't make distinctions like "free PS3 game" and "free PSN game" for the month anymore, and haven't for the last few months (did they ever?). It's mostly just the commenters who try to classify things like this.

In December we got Bioshock 2 on Dec. 3 and then SSFIV:AE on Dec. 10. In January we got NBA Jam: OFE and Chronovolt on the Jan 1 (techinically Dec. 31), MegaMan on Jan. 8, then Darksiders on Jan. 15.

The time of the month (whether it's the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th update) doesn't seem to have any bearing on whether we get a full game or PSN game here in the US.


It's generally 1 game/week for 5 weeks. 3 PS3 games go first, followed by 2 PSV games at the end of the month. 4-week months have 2 games for one of the weeks. Also, some months we have an extra game or two.

If I'm not mistaken, the free trials expire in the first week of March. If you have 2 or more codes, it's a good idea to use one of them now.

How does one update the expiration date on their PS+ games without re-downloading every game they have?

532919.pngsig.gif

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.

It should update automatically. I think mine took a few days to update last time I extended my subscription.

to those waiting to activate the free month of eu ps+, can't you just use the link to get multiple codes, activate it now, download the games and play them on your regular acct, then when the ps+ expires the next month, just make another acct and put the code on it and do the same thing?

Is Ridge Racer Vita as bad as its reputation? At $12.49 it's at least approaching the 'I've owned one on every Sony system' nostalgia point for me.

I'd also recommend Touch My Katamari at that price point to anyone who is a fan of the series or who has never played a Katamari Damacy game before. If you've soured on the series or feel it's too iterative, this one sure won't change your opinion though.

Borderlands 2 kept it's embargo until release day. Several other highly rated games have too. I think it's more to do with concerns about outliers trashing on your game before all the positive reviews can bury them. (which is my #1 problem with smaller review sites)

I actually feel like those are Still too expensive to be regular price! These are freakin old PSP games that should be on sale for $5 just to rope in those last few people who may have missed them. However, looking over the complete list has made me realize why I'd never had a problem with Namco before... I don't even think I'd impulse buy a single game on that list (besides Katamari for $5) regardless of price.

No. They won't even refund you if you're an hour early. Just how businesses work, I don't blame them personally.

Yeah, if PSP games were cheaper or went on sale more often, it would be a way greater incentive for Vita owners. Since PSP was a distant 2nd against the original DS, I'm sure a lot of people never owned one and missed out on some games. That, and I'm sure the UMDs are super cheap these days, not to mention the way piracy was so rampant on the PSP. If older PSP gamds hovered in the $10-15 range, there are quite a few that would have already been impulse buys.
