First. I got the platinum in "13 hours, 36 minutes, 44 seconds", so feel free to break it down however you wish.

Unless you used guides, that sounds like an anomaly for a first run, so suggesting that six hours is easy/normal is misleading.

A) I originally said you could beat the game in 6 hours easy... because you can probably do it in 3 if you ignore everything. I just so happened to get all the collectibles at 6, so I gave that time for that reason.
B) Guacamelee is a pretty straight forward game. Pretty much every collectible I missed was "hidden" via a chicken path or I lacked the tools to accomplish at the time. If you wanted to speed run it, you can also void MOST of the effort by flying as the chicken.
C) I never suggested six hours to get all the collectibles was normal, I just said I did it. Maybe it was a fluke, maybe other people suck, I don't know... just saying I did.

Limbo I would be excited for, as I still haven't gotten it. Batman, I already bought the GOTY version for :360: a while ago, and still haven't played it. I really wanted it for PS3, so I might play it twice for, well...you know whats;)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

According to a sony advertisement leak, it seems Batman:Arkham city and Limbo will be next for the PS+ instant game collection.

Two games I own and have beaten. Two excellent games, mind you, (hence the reason for owning them already) but it's always a bummer when you realize an upcoming IGC game is something you don't need. If it's true, some people will have an great month ahead with their PS+ membership.

I'm more interested in what Vita games will come, but other than Rayman I've more or less bought all of the retail Vita games I want to play for now.

Your first time through the game? From my experience and what I've seen from others, the average is between 8-10 hours for a 100% on the first playthrough, so your time is an exception and not the norm.


My time was around 6:40 for a first run through with 100% completion. It really takes no time at all if you're used to the genre and spot areas on the map that might have a hidden shortcut.

Hmmm...that's not too exciting. Would have preferred Batman a few months ago when I could have sold my copy for $15 or so. Oh well.

To beat it in three hours requires you to know what you're doing, which most people won't know their first time through the game. Most of them are going to explore and go for collectibles as they get them and not just mainline the game and come back for collectibles later.

Saying that there's no replay value is odd after you found enough value to play through it a second time. But whatever, my point was that it's closer to eight hours for the normal completion time.

My time was around 6:40 for a first run through with 100% completion. It really takes no time at all if you're used to the genre and spot areas on the map that might have a hidden shortcut.

I didn't say it's hard to 100%, though some of the orbs are quite a challenge, but that the average completion time's going to be a bit higher than six hours for most people.

Do you just skim my posts or do you actually read them? I said "almost no", which I can guarantee I wouldn't have beat hard if it wasn't required for the platinum. I wouldn't be shocked if a lot of people agree with me on this one either...

sorry, i was mainly just thinking out loud, or seeing what others would do in my situation. if these had come out 6 months ago, i'd have bought all 3 without blinking. being injured, and out of work, makes me actually think about my purchases, lol. it's a shame the soul sacrifice demo, and sacred citadel, didn't come out last week. would make this a lot easier for me.

Finally had to bite on Borderlands and bought the digital bundle. I'm not a PS+ member but I had $25 in Best Buy RZ certs which I gladly exchanged for PSN cards, so $5 out of pocket for 2 games I've never owned or played. I've heard great things but I just always passed on them for some reason. This is the best deal I've seen though.

Out of all the games I've owned/played, it's crazy that I never got around to at least trying them at some point.

Finished recording footage for the PS+ Preview videos of Labyrinth Legends and Malicious. Malicious was hard because I forgot how to play that game, so you'll see two attempts at the same level with the latter being my good run.

Be sure to read the controls section of the manual in Malicious on the main menu, as it does a good job of explaining what each thng does. You'll need to grind out kills of the scrubs around the levels to gain enough mana to go into your power mode so you can do actual damage on the boss.

I'm sorry that playing through a game a second time on a harder difficulty doesn't qualify as almost nothing to me, but this is dipping into a trophy discussion, so I'll concede. You win.

I hope this is not the case and the rumor turns out to be wrong, I already have both of those games, if they plan to give us games that have been on the EU ps+ IGC then make it Deus Ex HR or Sleeping Dogs

I made it up to the part where you are fighting through the wildlife preserve. I lost my save file when I got a new ps3. Is it worth picking up the game again. or was I too close to the end to get my $'s worth?

Wait, are we expecting the same games as the EU PS+? If so, I need to introduce some new variables into my purchase planning algorithm.

Had a chance to play a Sound Shapes demo at Target. Damn, wish I had picked it up when it was on sale a few months back. Definitely getting the next time around.

And on Demon's Souls, died at the Tower Knight boss in 1-2. Then, I died 5 more times trying to get back to it, twice by the dogs. Wish I knew you could spend souls to upgrade stats because I lost thousands when I died, thinking I had to bank them to buy equiptment.

sound shapes is amazing, one of my favorites in recent memory. I finally got the platinum last week (which IMO isn't to hard, but can't say much more), and want to replay it again if I get the chance. It's just so fun, and the new community picks really help you find some great levels. Totally worth it at any price, very highly recommended:applause:
