That's really a decent price on Katamari. The game plays well on the Vita (I haven't gotten to spend too much time with it yet though). My understanding is that it's on the short side or has some DLC hook or something, but I can't confirm or deny so do your homework.


I love Katamari games and this was the first Vita game I bought and was my only game for a while. There is not enough variety in the level designs and you play through very similar stages through the dozen or so levels. i.e. the last two levels take part on nearly identical towns but the final level lets you expand into fantasy world. I did not like the touch movement controls and played the majority of the game with the traditional two stick control from the original PS2 game. There's regular, high speed and eternal mode, the last two you buy with candy points you earn in the levels.

The DLC is okay. There's a snowman level, Pacman level, collect things for money, race down a hill, etc. To unlock DLC you have to find "FAN" characters in the game (or buy them). 10 Fans let you unlock a new DLC level. One fan will always appear in the same spot of a particular level but randomly will appear so you can go 20, even 50 levels before it appears. And you still have to grab it and successfully complete the level. Frustrating and makes me want to hate the game. The Calorie level is easiest to find and capture the Fan but even online sites recommends start the level, if its not there quit, then restart until you get it.

The most boring type of level grinding. I can't bring myself to get the last 21 Fans I need to unlock the last three levels which I'll probably play only a few times.

Haven't played NBA Jam since the Genesis days so great to get that one free. Chronovolt looks cool but is apparently terrible. Hopefully this is a one time thing and we don't get a bunch of completely shit Vita games.

So, maybe it will be all 3 of the paid AR games combined? If so I'll definitely be getting that too.

Wait, the 3 paid games are only $1.99 each. Hmm...

PulzAR - $1.99
Table Ice Hockey - $1.99
Table Top Tanks - $1.99
Table Top Tanks - Toy Tanks Set - $0.99
Cliff Diving - Additional Cliffs - $0.99
Table Soccer - Match Day Game Pack - $0.99

Total: $8.94 like it says in the listing, so it's the three paid games plus all of the DLC.

Does Tokyo Jungle support remote play? If so, I'm all over it. Looks super interesting.

Yes, it received that update I think two weeks ago.

That's really a decent price on Katamari. The game plays well on the Vita (I haven't gotten to spend too much time with it yet though). My understanding is that it's on the short side or has some DLC hook or something, but I can't confirm or deny so do your homework. Nonetheless, hooray Tokyo Jungle! I think the digital discounts are really promising even if they're not usually for me. $15 for Batman AC? $8 for Skullgirls? $10 for Shadow of the Colossus? For those that prefer a digital library, it really seems like Sony is making a play for their business (at least in comparison to XBL's winter sale which is also really decent).

People bitch too much.

I accidentally read the PS blog comments and now I just feel antsy and pissed off.

They've been making that push since June 2011 when PSN came back, as they had a number of great deals for ACII Deluxe, Borderlands GOTY, and others that has also come with the big push to get as many retail games on PSN since then. This is just a continuation.

The holiday Games on Demand sales on XBL have been their best push for that stuff since the big $5 sale, which was the only other major sale they've had for that stuff. They're at least improving on that.

Glad to hear about Sound Shapes allowing cross trophy unlocks. Wonder if Jetpack Joyride will be considered cross buy as well.

For someone who isn't big on realistic sports games, but tends to have decent fun with the more unrealistic ones (Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 through 4, Mario Tennis & Sega Superstar Tennis, etc.), would I have fun with NBA Jam: On Fire Edition?

I'm the same way and haven't played NBA Jam in years but I'd say almost definitely yes. Games like this that I liked are Tony Hawk, Tecmo Bowl, NFL Blitz, and of course NBA Jam. The real sports games tend to be overly complicated for my tastes even though I do enjoy them when I actually manage to find the patience to learn them.

I thought it was a mini. Aren't those always cross-buy? Also, if it's free, why would it matter if it's cross buy? Is it only free on one system?

There's a Minis version that was released a few weeks ago, but this is not related to that. This is a Vita and PS3-specific version that is free-to-play, which doesn't automatically mean that it's Cross Buy supported. I purchased the Vita version on an alternate account and didn't get the PS3 version with it, so it doesn't support Cross Buy. Not supporting Cross Buy likely means that there's no Cross Save or Cross Trophy support, though I haven't looked into the details yet to confirm or deny that.

when is this getting updated

cant wait to get sound shapes

It's up now, which is why I posted the list.

To those confused, NBA Jam, the disc based version is having its online servers taken offline on Jan 11th.

NBA Jam on Fire edition is the SAME game, but more modes, which had a PSN only release (probably because NBA Jam shouldnt have been a full retail disc release)

So if anyone tells you PS+ gave you a game whose online mode is being taken aware are DEAD WRONG
