going on previous sales, probably will continue to pass on them all. Capcom needs to be a little more lenient to get my money, but I've got my fingers crossed;)

I am hopeful. I think I'm gonna pass on the GTA sale week with the hope of RE1, 2 and 3 all being half off. Doubtful, but I'd love to have those 3 for my Vita at $10. I played a bit of RE1 when it first came out, but haven't played anything in the series since, which doesn't sound like a bad thing since most people don't like most of the series beyond RE 4.

Resident Evil 2 is classic, but people have different tolerances for the quirks of PS1 games.

*sigh*, my man, if you don't like what I have to say, just ignore me. All the silly antagonism isn't necessary. I already admitted I wasn't playing it right.


A) Where is the antagonism? He asked people to nicely ignore your post (one you even admit here is invalid lol) and then told them to judge for themselves. Regardless of how you look at it, it was a nice, respectful and well rounded post.
B) You didn't admit you were playing it wrong, you suggested you might be playing it wrong.
C) Most of the trophies are pretty easy, even if you're completely awful at it, you can get a few of them quickly.

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.

The AC3 season pass needs to go on sale soon. Ever since Xbox got it for 1600 MSP on the 1st I've been hoping for a drop on PSN....hopefully sometime in May or June.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Finished Guacamelee but still need to go back and search for treasure chests. Cannot find the last section in the forest for the life of me, it's stuck at 94% complete but the map looks fully explored.

For anyone complaining about the length of Guacamelee, I want to remind everyone that Super Metroid can be beaten in ~3 hours if you know what you're doing and 8 if you take your time, but no one talks shit on it for its length. The optional stuff in Guacamelee is really challenging and adds to the experience substantially, and it shows how thoughtful the developers were in making the maps & abilities interact well. Finishing things up to 100% it, I'd have gladly paid $15 for it.

Re: the collection ports, I barely have time for console gaming which is why my Vita has gotten so much use. Stoked to see Sly & Jack collections, because I've always wanted to play those games but just don't have time to sit down for hours at a time. Same with games like P4.

I also just finished Gucamelee, got the platinum in just a few minutes over 10 hours. I think a lot of people were giving admiralvic some crap because he said it wasn't a crazy long game. I'm in no way a fast gamer, and it didn't take me very long at all. I still 100% think it's worth $15 though. Awesome, awesome game.

What happened was someone said they wanted three games (Guacamelee, Dragon Fantasy Book I and Sacred Citadel I think), but only could afford or only wanted to buy two of them at the time and asked for opinions. Since two of the games weren't out yet, I simply mentioned Guacamelee could be easily beaten in under 6 hours and didn't have a ton of replayablity. Then Frisky (I believe) mentioned that it would take a lot longer to find everything, to which a debate broke out about how it was apparently impossible to believe I did it in roughly 6 hours (even if my comment was simply about beating the game). I suppose thats what I get for trying to help someone. lol...

C) Most of the trophies are pretty easy, even if you're completely awful at it, you can get a few of them quickly.


I never said my post was invalid, only that I may not have been playing it properly. I honestly think that's less my fault and more the game's failure to adequately explain what was going on. Just finished watching @frisky's video, and the issue seems to be that I was stuck on the projectile weapon and not using the melee. I didn't know you could switch with the d-pad (it's never mentioned). I also didn't know you could repair yourself with L1+O.

I did, however, understand the charge function and that killing the foot soldiers would build up aura, allowing for more powerful attacks. I understand the game's basic mechanics and premise, but the sense of progression was lost on me. Worth noting that @Frisky and I both had dealt the same amount of damage around the 17:00 mark, which is exactly what I said in my original post. Nearly 20 minutes and only a fraction of the boss's health was depleted. I just didn't know to keep going at it.

To the point that @jack frost is antagonistic, I don't know that there's ever a reason to tell others to dismiss someone's opinion. Completely unnecessary and silly.

Re: the collection ports, I barely have time for console gaming which is why my Vita has gotten so much use. Stoked to see Sly & Jack collections, because I've always wanted to play those games but just don't have time to sit down for hours at a time. Same with games like P4.


I'm mostly with you on that, as I've been gaming almost exclusively on my handhelds as of late. Still, there are just certain things that deserve to be experienced in a pristine state, and the recent HD collections definitely fit the bill. I'm not saying the ports won't be good, but what I saw of the Jak & Daxter trailer worried me a bit. And, again, I don't know what went "wrong" (again, wasn't bad...just not as good) with Sly 4 on vita. They're not exactly pushing the hardware, so can't understand why there would be issues. Just something to consider if you have the option to play on either platform.

It's still $40 on PSN right now(oddly enough when RE6 is 30) so I don't see it dropping close to the $12.99 Gamefly has been selling it for. If the surprise me and sell it for less than 20 I might grab it as well.

I went back and tried Malicious again. This time around I read the manual and Frisky's recommendations and I was able to take out the Library boss. I think I'll go back and work on the rest too. :)

It's not exactly ground breaking, but it provides a bit of diversion.

Well, I beat I got the platinum in just over 10 hours, which means two playthroughs, collecting everything. So you're definitely not too off base. I think the first one took me about 7 hours, and the second on hard mode was about 3, since I wasn't collecting anything, just rushing through the game.

Again, I don't know why people can't just not like a game without there being a huge issue about it. I just didn't like it, I expressed that, no need to tell me how wrong I am because I didn't like something, or that I was playing a different game because I had a different opinion on it than you.



People can just not like a game. But if people post reason(s) they don't like a game, other people can (and will) respond to those reasons. I mean, c'mon, this is a forum. We aren't posting into a vacuum, we get responses. And not all responses will agree with you.

Expecting everyone who disagrees with you to not speak up simply because it's 'your opinion' simply isn't how the internet works.

You mentioned that the game didn't 'instantly' appeal to you in direct response to someone else saying game 'opens up' after the first bit, and I was pointing out that it only takes around 15 minutes to 'open up' the game. That is not a long time by any definition. It's not like FFXIII or something where it takes hours.

I hate platformers so I don't play them. And more importantly, don't post about them... but if i did, i'd expect getting blow back for posting how much i hate, say, Super Mario Brothers.

Also: "Demons Souls dumps everything right on the player all at once"

No, it doesn't. It's just very good at hiding it, and never explains anything, really. But plenty of stuff like crafting isn't necessary from the beginning. It adds layer upon layer without ever really getting into tutorial, but it doesn't dump everything on the player from the get go. Even stuff like encumbered simply isn't an issue until you gather enough inventory for it to become an issue, at which point you figure out the new gameplay element organically because your character suddenly moves like a rock.

I played it when I was 12 and enjoyed it! :lol:

So just started playing spec ops this morning. Was always interested in it but just kept passing it up. And man I got to say I love this game. Even the gameplay is cool despite having weird controls. Almost done with it since it is kinda short. Glad PS+ got this. Now I want to buy it for my collection on 360 one day. :D

I loved spec ops, would have definitely gone for the platinum had saves carried over from the disc version. Anyone who hasn't played it yet, hurry up and do. It's only 8-10 hours long, and an incredible experience the whole way through. And it's got everyones favorite everyman Nolan North (surprised, I'm sure);)

And I'd just like to say, I'm playing through Black 2 as my first Pokemon game, and I'm still enjoying it:D
