Having trouble deciding on last minute purchases and if any of these are worth it Max Payne 3 (beat disc 1 long ago with free redbox rental), L4D2 (sadly my friends all have it on steam & im an xboxer) or MGS collection (only played mgs4 & get tense with super stealth games)


Replied to you in the other thread, but my vote goes MGSHD:)
Let me tell you two useful pieces of information...

But you're Vault Boy :shock:

Here's hoping they have other things besides those Sega fighters this week. So far the only maybe is Nights into Dreams.

MGS HD - you get two brilliant games with tons of content for your money. Also both of these titles are better than MGS4. :)

DotW day, MS are on a roll lately. Some amazing deals.

LOL I already have the GOTY copies on both systems, have platinumed/1000'd the game on both systems plus all the DLC. I would just love to boot it up without having to pop in the disc. I actually broke down and got it right before you posted haha :lol: Can you tell I really fucking love Fallout 3? :booty:

While pondering if VF5FS was worth the price, I saw that not only did they remove the amazing "arcade simulator" single player mode of 5 vanilla, but the only way they let you customize your character now is through pricey DLC packs, without which you can't even access the Special Sparring mode... really bad move, like Capcpom bad, so that's a no for me.

Wow, people really care about superfluous customization items that do absolutely nothing and a glorified arcade mode over actual amazing gameplay? No, I'd rather not have the best fighting game ever made, it doesn't have enough worthless padding.

Agreed. Snoopy Flying Ace is Crimson Skies with a Peanuts paint job. Great gameplay. I need to play it more.


I had heard that before purchasing it, but I was pretty disappointed. I thought Crimson Skies had much better courses, modes, planes, etc.

Yeah, I often amaze myself looking at what lengths I can reach to avoid futile purchases... 8-)

Jokes aside, I really don't like this "extra bucks for extra colors" philosophy adopted by almost all recent beat'em ups to milk out cash from customers. I acknowledge the undisputed superiority of VF5 in its field, it even managed to catch my attention as a complete 3D brawler n00b and made me spend countles hours on its 4EVO and 5 incarnations (even though I was an ardent fan of the Bloody Roar franchise too... bring it back, Konami!), but I just can't stand this fragmented policy for games and I'd rather wait for a "complete" edition (which will never come for VF5FS, but I'm generally speaking) than buy an "incomplete" product, even if the extras it's missing are cosmetics only.

So yeah, mine's only a personal justification and a critic to Sega's way of thinking. That said, however, the week's long and I might bite anyway since the game is really great... talk about willpower! :lol:

I Can say you can skip Kane & Lynch, the game feels frustratingly dated and uninspired.


Yeah I re-downloaded the demo and got that impression but I also bought K&L2 from Newegg for $10 a couple months ago and decided I'll play the original first.

The demo for El Shaddai wasn't that great so I passed and I vaguely recall liking the demo for DM when it came out like 5 years ago so i did get it at $3. I enjoyed the demo for Dirt 1 and wanted it but Dirt 2 was announced quickly after so I waited and this was a great price.

Total Haul:
MK vs DCU $5 + K&L $5 + Dirt 2 $5 + DM $3 = $18 / 2 (Target points) = $9 spent. :)

I decided to splurge since I didn't get the Crashed Ice or Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 like I originally planned.

This week I'll check out all the cheap 160 MSP games but I'm still trying to be good and not buy games I'm only vaguely interested in even at that price. I'd rather spend that money on a good 400-800 MSP game than 2-4 mediocre 200 MSP games.

create a character modes can be amazing so its understandable to some degree.

and then there is the DLC policy of this game which is mindbogglingly insane.

Might grab all of the Sega fighters if the price is right, I enjoyed playing these in the past and wouldn't mind going through them again on 360. Can't wait for Terraria either later this month, loved it on computer but tend to play more consoles.

You're missing part of the point. The unlocking of said items. Its like COD. Yeah the multiplayer is a blast, but the leveling up and prestiging and unlocking weapons is the icing on the cake (this is proven by so many and their desire to prestige over and over...). You can talk all you want about how good a game is at its core gameplay...but VF5 offers more incentive to come back for more (replayability).

Also tried the trial of Nights...not as exciting as I thought hum thought for 400 it would be a no brainer but well...not convincinh enough right now...

Oh yeah and new Shenmue 3 rumours...maybe it will be a funded per kickstarter....(also didn't know that it should have been 10 parts originally lol oO)
Well for me I would be glad to have a remake of the first two games and a Port from Skies of Arcadia Legends from Gamecube...(because more content than the DC version)

You can talk all you want about how good a game is at its core gameplay...but VF5 offers more incentive to come back for more (replayability).


Actually, to this end, a huge chunk of VF5 single player charm was that, by visiting virtual arcades and beating local regulars and tourneys, you were awarded items for your character, so it was a nice self-gratification and a way to challenge yourself against preset AI who mimicked human behaviour at best of their possibilities, since we all know that Virtua Fighter is more about the ability to read your opponent's movements and gaming conduct rather than to chain endless combos together.

At least, they could've preserved some items to unlock after some matches or fixed conditions, akin to COD in a way, but instead they preferred to let you buy all items at once without even starting to play. It's the IAP mobile axiom ported straight to home consoles, although Namco Bandai still reigns undisputed in this rank. It doesn't deduct anything from the game per se, but it was a fun extra which kept things interesting, and that's why I'm still on the fence...

Oh, I know. I've played it some on PC but I've purposely restrained myself from playing the PC version of Terraria the past few months because I found out the XBLA version was coming so soon... and it's so hard to do that... because that game is amazing.

This is insane talk. Get VF:FS, play online, level up online fighting against solid players who are constantly forcing you to step up your game and all that single player stuff will start to feel shallow and uninteresting, trust me.
