Sorry if this has already been asked, but are there any further discounts for the Final Fantasy games if you are a PS+ member?

Also, noticed DISSIDIA 012 Prologus FINAL FANTASY is only $1.49, is this worth it?

Did I misread or was Critter Crunch labeled as being a $1 originally? Doesn't matter considering it's only 40 cents, but I'm curious.


Yeah, it was announced on the blogcast as being $1, or something like that (I didn't actually listen to it so I can't tell you exactly how it was said).

Grabbed Final Fantasy Origins, V and VI. Funny thing is, I was going to get them next week when I had some cash in my pocket. Glad this sale came along!

I'm considering getting V, but it not working on Vita is disappointing.


Also why do people seem to not like V?

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.

V was different. Some people don't like the job system and it was the beginning of it. I think it's a great game, but I think that if you want to play V, or VI, then the best versions are all on the Game Boy Advance.

Origins is okay, but I wish they would hurry up and get the PSP remakes of I and II out on the Vita store.

Just because ffvii is a cult classic doesn't mean you ff/jrpg virgins will enjoy it, graphics are very dated and will test your patience. I suggest starting with one of the later games, would be a better intro to ff.

I believe it is, while most of my and previous generations grew up with a ps1, a huge majority of gamers know nothing about ffvii and why it is considered a classic.

I tried out the lotr mobo, was very laggy, all games were mostly ai populated. Was very hard to enjoy the game, to say the least.

I'd consider it on the GBA, but I'm guessing it's a lot cheaper to get them off PSN.

Plus I like switching my save between PS3/Vita.


I might give it a shot though. It's one of the only ones I haven't played yet.

I'm surprised about all the complaints of Guardians of Middle Earth. I got my 100% over the past 3 days and didn't have much trouble finding matches or playing games. Sometimes it'd be choppy but that would only last until the person who was causing it got disconnected.

Also, what's been asked more times in this thread? Which FF game should I get or do I need to download PS+ free games?

PS + Free games.

I thought we were finally slowing down with the FF stuff, but looks like it's starting back up again. I wish it wasn't a 2 week sale.

As for GoME, how is the gameplay? Is there a lot of strategy and a pretty hefty learning curve? I'm pretty much brand new to the genre.

I heard it was pretty straight forward which most people familiar with the genre hated. It'll take a little bit to figure out what each hero is capable of but that's pretty much all the "learning curve" there is. Once you know how to best level your hero up and know how other heroes attack then you can pretty much play with the best of them. I'd give you maybe an hour of play time before you've got a solid grasp and if you're paying attention to what your teammates are doing you'll have a solid strategy grasp after a couple matches. (Assuming you get paired with some intelligent players...)

I would avoid it. The game featured a VERY small pool of playable characters (the Strawhat crew and 4 others), many important / popular characters don't appear (Shanks), the story skips over LARGE chunks of the story (Skypeia, Thriller Bark, Davy Back, Kuja, most of the starting arcs, etc) and plenty of minor problems. Also the game has already been on sale twice, so clearly it isn't doing well... we will probably see it go on sale again when Kaizoku Musou 2 releases in the US.

It's pretty simple as far as MOBAs go.. for better or worse.

I was playing GoME for the first time last night/this morning, and it's pretty awesome. I enjoyed Awesomenauts so I was hoping I would like this. I love the free to ps+ MOBAs, and I have no intention of buying any dlc cuz no trophies plus i like the original guardians more than bert or bilbo/etc. Lots of fun once you get a good team and dominate. I'v tried to win as each type, and all are pretty unique and fun to use once you hold R1 and read all the text. lol

plus seems like some customizations with the belt/gems relics potions commands.

I was surprised by how much I liked it, I almost didn't even bother downloading it. I wasn't brand new to the genre, I played Awesomenauts quite a bit and played about an hour or so of League of Legends so I already knew the basics on how to play that type of game. I don't think there is a ton of strategy or a gigantic learning curve though.

Some basic tips are:
Never approach a tower without soldiers in front of you.
Dying is the worst thing you can do, so even if you're gonna take out an enemy, it's not worth it if you're gonna get killed too.
Take out enemy soldiers whenever possible.
Capture shrines whenever possible.
Always upgrade towers and the soldiers when you can.
Learn what skills work with each other.
Don't lone wolf it, try to at least be with one other guardian.

Also, Lugbol is the shit.

Can the PS3 handle bigger than 500? Cause if so this is a better deal: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822152290

FYI: I just bought this HDD even thought I have a 250 sitting right next to my PS3 waiting to be installed. I figured if I'm going to go through that work I might as well just do it once.

I'm all for off-topic discussion, just take a look at the most frequent posters list for this thread and you'll see that. I just don't personally care for the FF talk because I don't play FF. And for some reason the FF talk seems to overwhelm this thread in ways only US/EU PS+ discussion can. But at least the FF talk is much more civil. I guess I'm being hypocritical, but oh well.

Thanks to you and everyone else for the input. Like a lot of people on here, space is my biggest issue when it comes to downloading PS+ games. I didn't get around to downloading GoME because I was afraid it would be way too much for me, and I'm not one to sink hours upon hours into multiplayer games. But you all make it sound like the barriers to entry are pretty low, in regards to learning how to play.

It's awesome and nearly silent. I put one in my new Slim recently and it works like a charm and is nearly silent. Plus you'll find that the extra 250 GB in space is SO worth the extra $9 in cost.
