#12057418 XBL Deals - DwG: NFS Rivals, KI Sabrewulf | GwG: Sept games announced, Dish...

Shadow Complex seemed more 2D Uncharted than a metroidvania type game, I thought. It's a great game that shouldn't be missed.

The only thing similar to Uncharted is the main character is designed/voice like Nathan Drake. It's very much a mix of Metroid's mechanics and upgrades with an Castlevania-style leveling system that has simpler rewards. It's the best of both worlds.

 

Do people here forget that XBLA games have demos? It shouldn't be hard to try it out to see how any of you guys like it.

I'm watching this SCEJA pre-TGS press conference and there are some interesting things being announced:

 

-Vita is getting themes that offer a variety of backgrounds for each of your pages plus custom background music.

-Vita is getting the Live From PlayStation app to let you watch PS4 streams on your Vita.

-New Hot Shots Golf game for PS4, which lets you make new courses with friends.

-The Tomorrow Children will be getting an alpha test in October for PS+ and will be starting sign-ups with PS+ users, at least for Japan, on 9/17.

-They announced for PS4 a new Earth Defense Force, a new Bladestorm, Disgaea 5, Resident Evil Revelations 2, Yakuza 0, God Eater 2: Rage Burst (PS4/Vita), One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, a new Mobile Suit Gundam, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, a new Ys (PS4/Vita), Persona 5, and Dragon Quest Heroes (Musou). At least that's it for things I could name.

-PS4 will be getting dynamic themes with FW 2.0 with custom music and even different art for the game list and the home row up top.

 

Here's confirmation that PS4/Vita themes will be coming to NA PSN.

 

Persona 5 looks to be set in a big city with a new main character.

Double Fine has a new episode of their Grim Fandango Remastered documentary up that shows an early, rough version of it running on PS4 before they've been able to start putting in the original higher res assets.

 

 

If you want to see the original game in action, Tim Schafer did a Let's Play episode where he plays it while talking about behind the scene stuff.

 +1 agree with them, it was a very good game an i bought it day 1 played till EP 3 an waited too finish it in till EP 5 was out.

 

hope they make a sequel, as the lore of world an characters  was well done an worth revisiting, it  has a lot good plot twist.

The season ends leading towards the first issue, so if you want more of that world, the comics are the best place for that as I'd assume that there are some compilations that are great for that.

On TOPIC, looking forward to yet another port of Metal Slug 3 (PS4/PS3/Vita), one of my favorite arcade games on the Neo Geo! And yes I already own MS3 on every other possible platform (except Neo Geo CD, and yes including the MS Anthology for PSN, which works pretty well on Vita), but I still welcome more Neo Geo ports to Sony hardware. There are so many other gems that came out on the Neo Geo, SNK really needs to get with it porting them over. This is a day 1 buy for me!

I'd love to see a proper collection of the Metal Slug games since at least those early games were great.

Is there any sorta Cross-Buy deal on Steamworld Dig?  

I thought there was talk about it being a possiblity.

 

The gist of the article is that NOE has their Cross Buy discount stuff ready to go while NOA is still working on it. EU people got 25% off of SWD.

We are still having an argument about what constitutes a free game? 

Yeah, I don't get what there is to get worked up about besides opinions of whether the lineup for the month is to their liking. I get my money's worth out of PS+ through sales, so the games are a great bonus when there are great games each month.

I started Infamous First Light and I really like how they turned this game into more of a Crackdown-style sandbox with neon orbs all around the north island from the original game that you require using Fetch's abilities to reach. They made some smart adjustments to her abilities, like these neon gas pockets that are all around the place that act as speed boosts to let you make bigger jumps or get around even faster. The side quests consist of races and neon graffiti with the former being like a much better form of Crackdown 2's racing orbs and the latter is a simpler method of motion-controlled graffiti using her neon powers like you'd see in the original game. There are still story missions, but I'm enjoying just running around and doing this sandbox stuff first before I engage the story.
