I have been comtemplating what to play next for the last few days. I completely forgot that Sleeping Dogs was free tonight.

I just finished the story for AC3 and I finally decided to start Sideway NY (cant remember if i got it free or discounted from plus). It is a cool little platformer, but the rotating buildings can be a pain in the eyes from time to time. Anyways, its okay, but now that Sleeping Dogs is coming I know what should keep me occupied for a few weeks. I hope it is as much fun as it looks and everyone says it is. Glad I didnt buy it for $20 recently.

Probably why the Star Wars tables weren't on sale on PSN last week:

Honestly I think this is really dumb. Zen worked really hard to get all their Zen tables under one hub, and now they launch this???

I didn't see any new discounts or free games. Did I miss them?

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

any of the sleeping dogs DLC or DLC packs worth it? do any of them add anything to the game outside of cosmetics / stat boosted crap?

hey one more question i just thought of (hopefully last)
about the psn + where you can play the download games free as long as you have an account...

Do you need a active hook up to the net ( meaning does the system hook into the internet everytime you open these games )

When you download a game which is free with PS+ it is imprinted with the date your PS+ is set to expire so that you don't have to maintain an online connection (unless the game itself has online DRM like some capcom games that would be present even if you bought it). When it expires the game will cease to function.

Retro City Rampage is rather crappy and barely worth the price of free with PS+ let alone half off. The 80s references are amusing but the gameplay ranges from bland to godawful.

Apparently the 3 story DLCs for Sleeping Dogs are Nightmare in Northpoint, Year of the Snake, and Zodiac Tournament. Some seem to like them, some seem to hate them.

I don't know what RCR you've been playing, but I think it's pretty damn fantastic for a cheap indie title. I have spent most of my playtime with the Steam version, but I did try it on PS3 when it came to PS+ for free and didn't notice any significant difference.

Can't comment on the game, as I haven't tried it yet, but $15 isn't exactly what I'd call "cheap"

Especially for digital.

I wanted to like RCR too, but couldn't. I remember I had more fun with GTA II (possibly a bad comparison, but couldn't think of anything else that I played when I was young at this moment that is similar to RCR), but perhaps they are about the same but times have changed.

Nevermind, I figured it out. Turns out the download for the PSN store application doesn't go ahead of other downloads like normally for some reason.

I really don't want to miss out on getting Sleeping Dogs, but every time I try to access the PSN store this week I get these messages on screen.

Anyone get else get these messages? Spoilered for spacing.

Spoiler


It let's me press circle to go back. A new message appears:

Spoiler



I check and there is nothing under [Network] that tells me the status of the download. It says I have the latest update.

I don't know what this "Software Update" is exactly, but it is making me unable to access the PSN store.

I let it sit for awhile and nothing happens. Usually, it starts a download automatically. Any ideas? Thanks ahead.



My advice, hit triangle on the PS Store icon on the XMB, hit delete, once it is deleted click the PS Store icon again to force it to download the app again. Hopefully that fixes it.

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.

You're not going to miss out on Sleeping Dogs. For one, it's not even available for free yet and two, it'll be on the store for at the very least, a few weeks.

I didn't see any new discounts or free games. Did I miss them?

We don't know this week's sales in their entirety yet, so there could be some discounts on Vita games. You can't expect them to discount or put up free Vita games week in and week out and if they don't, they're not assholes. You just expect too much of them.

I wouldn't. The story is cute, but nowhere near interesting and all the collectibles are super easy to find. You can easily 100% the game and never play it again in 5 hours, which is just way too low.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

While I agree in the that it is a very short play through, with a very easy 100% regarding achievements - I thought it was a fresh take on Infamous franchise incorporating the 'horror' genre that has been very popular the past few years. The vampire and zombie theme are portrayed in it, (not to say the story isn't extremely basic and predictable) but I just thought it was a short yet fun and rewarding play through. But I also have not burnt out from all the zombie, vampire, horror stuff in popular media either, so it could be just me.

$5 for 5 hours seems more than reasonable especially if you're a fan of the Infamous 2 and its game play style.

Honestly that sounds perfect to me. I have very little time for games so short, well made games are great. Let's not forget there are some retail games with 5-6 hour campaigns and no replay value either.

Looks like some will come with it. From the blog post:

...this version of Sleeping Dogs comes with not only the full game, but also 3 premium DLC packs including the Retro Triad Pack, the Red Envelope Pack, and the Street Racer Pack.


No idea if those packs are any good, but it's something at least.
