I'd recommend and 2 of the following:

Devil May Cry 3 SE
Katamari Damacy or We <heart> Katamari
Tekken 5
X-Men Legends 2
If you're a BIG Simpsons fan, Simpsons Hit & Run


For Devil May Cry 3 SE, do you think it's better if you played the first 2 beforehand? OR it doesn't really matter?

It really doesnt matter, but I would recommend playing the DMC1 first since its inferior gameplay wise to DMC3. Its still good, but it will feel dated after you play DMC3.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Like whoknows said, I would definitely play the first game beforehand. It is an awsome game and gives you a good foundation going into 3. I would skip part 2 though. It is not a good game at all and contributes practicly nothing to the franchise.

I disagree. I feel that DMC3 shook up quite a bit of what made DMC1 fun. More isn't ALWAYS better.

Granted, DMC3 is an excellent game, but DMC1 is excellenter.... yeah, that's right, I said excellenter.

I'm thinking of going back and getting 2 more games for 30. I already picked up SOTC and Socom 3. Any suggestions? I own a PS2 and 360 (so the xbox game must be BC). Thanks in advance!

In addition, I recommend Mercenaries for PS2. Dunno if it is BC for XBox.

I dunno if it feels dated.... just different. I actually think that DMC 1 holds up really well and both games offer surprisingly different experiences.

Skip DMC 2 though... pure garbage.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

I was hating the 'hay guyz no platforming?' change to Ratchet Deadlocked, but I am freaking LOVING this game. Screw those AI bots though, which are good to throw EMP shots and turn bolts and hack nodes. Ratchet is the one gunning shit down, and with the weapons in this game (including the Arbiter, an obvious joke about Halo 2), I'm having a blast.

Sly 3 feels just like part 2, although I had a bit more fun with part 2 than I am 3.

DMC 2 really that bad? I thought of playing it to complete the trilogy
Currently Playing: Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Wipeout 2048, Persona 3: FES, Some crappy FTP iphone crap
Best Gaming Memories: Super SF2 and Killer Instinct on X-Band for SNES (online play w/little lag in the 90s!), FF2 + 3, SF2 (arcade), MVC2 (DC), Goldeneye + Perfect Dark (N64), Starcraft Broodwars
Too many games in my backlog...not enough time!

Unfortunately yes, it is very bad. The game has dull levels, easy/repetitive combat (all you have to do is keep your distance and shoot with your pistols), no personality (Dante is very un-Dante like and barely talks), and feels rushed. I bought the game when it was released a few years ago expecting a great sequel. After the first few levels I was thinking "this is cool", but by the end of the game I couldn't wait to trade the damn thing in to get it out of my house. One of the biggest sequel letdowns I have ever played. Thank God they redeemed theirselves with 3.

If you can find it sub-$10, pick it up for completion sakes, but don't expect anything close to part 1 and 3.

Should I play ICO before SotC?


I would say the exact opposite.
Although SOC is a great game, it can't even touch the feeling you get from ICO.
Go for SOC first.

Just finished Ratchet: DL. Liked it overall, but my favorite in the series is still UYA. For those who have played and beaten UYA, you'll enjoy the after credits video for sure.

That's what I was thinking: Either get all 3 and finish the story, or not by at all. That's why I was wondering if DMC3 has any storyline reference to the DM1 and 2.

Thanks guys for your feedback :)

If you are playing DMC for the story, you are playing the game for the wrong reasons. DMC is awesome because it is a VERY deep, VERY well-thought out action game, more akin to the precise combat of Viewtiful Joe than slugfests like Dynasty Warriors.

Its plot is non-existant, for the most part. Hell, DMC3's cutscenes were just there for the characters to show off.

It's the same reason I bought Prince of Persia trilogy and Onimusha for the story + the action of course.

Don't get me wrong, story is not the only thing I am buying DMC for, it's just that I am worried I'd miss out on the story and just hack and slash thru the game, no different than Dynasty warriors.

Just play DMC 1 - 3, in that order. Even though DMC2 isn't the greatest, it should still be played.

God of War and Shadow of the Colussus for $30? I'm in. So I just have to buy a $30 gamer gift card, then go back to the games, pick those two up, go to a different cashier and the card will cover everything except tax?

I think you'd have to buy two cards.

Many BB locations have the GH sticker on the outer package, so the game inside is still the original print.

Is PoP3 going to be GH? It is 19.99 also.

Most cashiers will let you apply the cash to the card and immediately apply the card. They know what you're doing.

Yeah, I haven't run into any trouble doing it.

But like I said, you might want to tell them what you're doing ahead of time, as I have been told that they have to do two transactions, to be able to activate the gift card and then use it towards the game you're purchasing.

Yeah, I've run into one cashier who let me scan the coupon and put the case back on the shelf (so as not to waste time and plastic).

Usually they are cool with it if you explain, but some of them just don't understand (the two transaction thing).

I figure they might get in trouble if they just scan the coupon, so I don't insist.

I picked up SotC, Socom 3 and Rachet for $14.99 each after the $5 BB/PSU coupons. I may pick up Sly 3 and/or Jak X later with my spare GCC, but not sure if they are as good as the other 3 titles.

Are Sly 3 and Jak X any good? I already have Sly 2 and Jak 2 & 3.

Sly 3 is similar to Sly 2, not better than Sly 2 in my opinion.

Forgot to mention that I saw a crapload of the new SotC with the printed GH banner at Target. The red banner doesn't really go well with the SotC cover color.

Better act quick if you want the non-GH cover ;)

BTW-- SoTC uses the same UPC code on the GH as on the orig -- so no extras, not that I expected Sony to give us some fan service.
