As sort of a public service announcement for both Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny on PSP, they are both at the pinnacle of late PSP development. If you take away the resolution differences between the PSP and the Vita (which is not that great of a factor with the Vita's great screen) then these games could easily pass for Vita games. They look and play great. If you've been hesitant to check these out because they're crusty old PSP games, give them another look.


The production values for both games are certainly impressive, but they are two of the worst installments in their respective series. There is no reason at all to play these if you have their console counterparts or earlier installments.

I always thought Tekken 4 was considered the worst.

on PS3 at least they don't let you add PS+ games to your cart anymore. A minor inconvenience really, but it would be nice just to be able to redeem all the games to your account at once. Might be possible with the online store, but I haven't tried.

Does anyone know if Fez is coming to PSN? I haven't found a definitive answer and was considering just getting it through Steam.

Yep, that's I all I've done for the last few months regardless of whether I actually d/l the game. Can't remember the last time I accessed the store through my console.

I remember hearing on Podcast Beyond that it indeed was, but I haven't heard anything about it since. I don't think it will be to long if it is, but if you really want to play it now I doubt it will be any cheaper on PSN.

hmm if we go to the Web Store.. and click PS+, everything that's in IGC should be there right?
there isn't any that's like "hidden" and require Ninja skills to find?

I say this because I always click that menu to ensure I don't miss any of the "free" downloads

Suggestion: for a game as great as Fez, just buy it on both. I picked it up on 360 on launch day, called it my GotY by far last Dec (also probably the game most definitive of this gen), picked it up on Steam on launch day even though my shitty laptop can't run it (or, like, anything since it's six years old), and will certainly buy it on the Vita and PS3 when it hits there as well.

Truly one Hell of a game.

You could just use the OP to get everything that's free for PS+ members. There's more there than what they tell you is available.

I think it's interesting Catherine is free in Europe and is only getting a discount in NA.

Doesn't mean Catherine still can't be free later though I guess.

Just recorded a video of SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny for the PS+ Preview post. That game's modes have really bad names. The arcade mode is called "Trials", which makes it sound like the tutorial mode. The tutorial mode is called "The Gauntlet", which sounds like what you'd call the arcade mode. The mode where you play against AI/User Created players is called "Quick Match", which doesn't give the impression that you're facing special AI in a VF4-like manner.

The game itself is pretty good, though I'd mostly stick to Quick Match since that is the most interesting thing there. I wish the AI player thing was more fleshed out. This would be an interesting game to play online with the PS3's AdHoc Party app.

I think it's interesting Catherine is free in Europe and is only getting a discount in NA.

Doesn't mean Catherine still can't be free later though I guess.

I wouldn't put much stock in it since Atlus puts a game or two on sale every week. It'll be on sale probably five or six times this year.

Those games could both look and play better than anything available on vita and it wouldn't matter to most because they don't have trophies. That addiction is real out here, son.


It doesn't help that they're fighters, for people like me anyway. I enjoy trophies quite a bit, but I still spent a decent amount of time with Mega Man Maverick Hunter X when we got it for free. But fighting games? I don't even bother downloading those.

If I was a betting man, I'd bet that yes, Fez will at least hit PSN, if not the Vita as well. And as a counterpoint to someone who posted earlier, I'll say I was quite disappointed with Fez.

I agree, which is why I'm glad we get the Vita version free when it comes out in "Spring". They only have a month and a half left of that.

It doesn't help that they're fighters, for people like me anyway. I enjoy trophies quite a bit, but I still spent a decent amount of time with Mega Man Maverick Hunter X when we got it for free. But fighting games? I don't even bother downloading those.

I don't download them either, although the art style looks interesting enough to get me to try BlazBlue. I probably wouldn't bother if it wasn't on Vita. However, the first time I run into a combo that requires a half-counterclockwise-stick rotation-only-on-Tuesday-plus-Triangle-R-L-Square-Circle (2x)-only-when-facing-away-from-your-opponent combo I'm deleting it.

I really wanted to like Fez, too, but I was pretty letdown with it as well. I think the lack of fast travel and any sort of indication of what you're supposed to do in most situation just frustrated me and drove me a game that was more fun to pick up and play.

SS? It has a good amount of length to be honest. Something like...

Main story (broken up between two characters and is like 5 chapters long.) and a final boss battle with 2 endings.
4 additional side stories that tell the stories for additional characters.
10 chapters for avalon pacts, with another 4 for forgotten pacts (these are challenge stages, like do not take damage, win in X time, etc).
Roughly 78 costumes to unlock (most are color swaps).
20+ bosses (designs / concepts are reused, but act differently).
"deep" gameplay. Or at least tactics make a difference.
Your character "transforms" when you have a 90 level difference in your level and then transforms again when you have a 99 level difference.
Online co op.
Tons of lore to read.
Missions can be soloed.
Playing differently has different rewards.
etc.


You can easily get 40 hours out of this game, plus even more when the DLC comes out.

I think it's pretty fun - I'm only on the 3rd or 4th chapter (or whatever) and so far I haven't been bored and the variety has been there to keep me entertained.

BBCSE has none of that. It's likely the easiest FG to handle aside from Tekken and the cheap PSN ones like VF2/5 and Sonic Fighters. The challenges are extremely easy (well, as required for the trophies) since you need to do so few, and then you have people with BS crap like Ragna that any scrub can use and be strong with (god I hated playing Ragnas online).

Basically, if you just want simple inputs, it's fine. There's very few of those 1-2 frame links from SF, insane motions like KOF, or super situational combos like MvC. They exist, but you can enjoy yourself plenty without ever needing to learn them.
