Germinator is a game I'll play in small chunks over a very long period of time.

^ This ^ Wish I could help, but I can't really think of anything like/as good as bust a move on psn either. Wish my wife even wanted to play video games with me haha.


Me and my gf are playing legend of mana again. She pretty much only plays games she finds nestalgic, wish she was into new stuff too but she could care less.

I'm the same way. I only like the kind of games I grew up with and couldn't care less for the latest 3D games. In a couple of years, I think nostalgia-based products targeting '90s kids will be big business.

She used to play WoW back in high school days, but stopped after she found she was getting too addicted to it. Hasn't really played many games since. That's about all her gaming experience haha. I'm just thankful she got away from WoW.

Starhawk's the only thing that sticks out to me with these ultimate bundles, though I'm not sure quite what the DLC entails. Still, only a couple dollars more than ordering it from Amazon. I just can't decide whether Starhawk's worth it or if I should just stick with trying to get into Dust 514.

I forgot what people were saying during the time debate, but my Hard playthrough of Guacamelee was just over four hours and that was collecting most of the chests.

I like how the credits were different based on what ending you got. I also think I preferred the "bad" ending.

Oh, and anyone who uses the Hard Mode glitch because "it's just more of the same" or "the only hard part is the platforming" or whatever is full of shit. Hard mode was significantly harder than normal mode.


It wasn't impossible, but some of the locked-in battles with waves of enemies were downright brutal, especially early on before you have a lot of health upgrades. There were a few of those fights that made me want to throw my Vita across the room, but I mostly enjoyed the challenge because it makes you really plan out and use your attacks in the most effective ways. Also shows off what a (mostly) great combat system they put together, which is uncommon these days for a 2D game like this.

And yeah, that fucking Jaguar fight on hard had me ripping my hair out. It wasn't too bad until his white shield at the end - it's hard to get enough damage in to actually deplete his health, and the majority of his attacks take priority over your own moves. Ugh.

I think it's worth it at full price, but definitely glad I got it on sale. One of the best games on PSN, easily.

Free Pinball Arcade is awesome. They are also offering a discounted Season 1 pack. Not sure if that's up yet or not. I'm going to switch from Xbox with all the publishing issues there. Which I blame fully on Microsoft, not Farsight. Thus the discounted season pack is perfect! EDIT: ah, I see that it's in the OP. Nice!

My understanding is that after their publisher on the 360, Crave, went into bankruptcy, several creditors are owed money and are fighting over assets. One of these assets is TPA on the 360. Until that's settled, no DLC for the 360.

I'm not sure how that's Microsoft's fault, although I guess you could say it's their fault for requiring a publisher in the first place.

If you had PS+ when the single-player campaign was made free, all of the DLC was also offered at the same time, so this deal essentially gets you the full game for much cheaper.

I've only been a PS3 user for a month or two, heck I didn't even know that Starhawk had a singleplayer campaign.

Question: my wife really loved super bust a move growing up and I wanted to know if there's any similar games we can play together on psn?


It's not really at all like SBaM, but if you are after a super cute and fun puzzle game on PSN, I can't recommend Critter Crunch enough! I had way way way more fun than I thought I would, maxed out all the modes, and just completely loved my time with it. It has local and online multiplayer, both co-op and vs, and is really easy to understand, but has enough depth to allow for strategic planning and combo making. Some of the most fun I've had with a PSN games easily:applause:

Gotcha. The DLC are mostly skins and a couple of co-op maps, so there's nothing really amazing there. The game itself was very fun for me as a big fan of Warhawk, though I don't know if there's still much of an MP community left.

That's the main thing I'm worried about. Ah well, I'll just put that money towards BF4.

Not really similar, but Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is good and has fun local co-op. It is like the match 3 puzzle games but with more depth.

Thanks for the info. Now that I have 2 years of PS+, I think I will wait on it if it has been on PS+ before for single player (it might come again), and the DLC is not all that much.

I had more fun on Hard mode than normal. Sure it's tedious and less enjoyable, but you actually have to use skill to win.

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.

I platinumed Lost Planet 2... I thought it was established. But no, the tedious / less enjoyable aspect came from the fact that I and I suspect many others would only be doing it for the trophy, which is more of a mad dash to the end. I should have been able to select it from the start, since it's definately the better of the two modes.

Beating hard mode is more rewarding, because like vic said, you actually need some skill to beat it.

Haha I'm just messing with you. I just thought it was kinda funny how you worded it. I've preferred hard mode in some games as well, and I actually like that trophies/achievements compel me to play a game on them. I wouldn't normally, but lately I've been doing it more often, and it definitely is a different experience than I'm used to:)
