#11703677 PSN Weekly Deals - 4/22: Batman Sale! Flying Hamster HD & Sunflowers...

Hey Jay.  Just for you.

 

I bought Tokyo Jungle, Jurassic Park and a third game of which the name is completely escaping me right now.  Good thing it was only 99 cents!

I created a second PSN user ID just so I could buy all the 99 cent games twice.




#11696509 GameStop B2G1 Used Games under 20. YMMV Ends 4/20

Posted by WNYX585AM on 17 April 2014 - 10:20 PM

Can anyone recommend some online (preferably co-op) games I should get for me and my pops? He just got XBL recently so we've been looking for cheap stuff to play. I was thinking Halo ODST, Borderlands, and Battlefield 3 which would come in around 12 bucks.. He just bought MW3 the other day and we've been having fun with that, I was thinking he could return and rebuy that and grab 2 other games at $10, but I'm not really sure what's good at that price point. Maybe GTA 4 (is the coop good?) and Madden 13 (servers still up)? I dunno, I'm a little out of the loop, appreciate any suggestions

Halo and Borderlands series are great for co-op.  Battlefield 3 has a very limited co-op mode that's not so great, but the online multiplayer is fun.  Gears of War is another great series for co-op (both for campaign and horde modes).  It sounds like your definition of co-op is pretty loose, so a lot more games may fit your definition.  Most people define co-op as two or more people working together against AI, so my answers are based on that.  One of the best co-op games that's often overlooked for co-op is Portal 2.  I had so much fun going through that with a friend.  We were both pretty bummed when we finished it.

 No idea what Borderlands DLC is any good.  A little help?

If you enjoyed the main Borderlands 2 campaign on single player, I would recommend getting the Season Pass.  All of the DLC's are good (some better than others) and there's a lot of content for $15.  Skip the headhunter stuff since it's not much content in comparison (and no achievements).  Definitely skip the skins unless you are really into that.  The Mechromancer and Psycho packs are good if you want to try different play styles.  Mechromancer is definitely my favorite.

Oh and another thought on the Borderlands thing...how does it make any sense at all to release a game that takes place between the first two games in the series, on another generation of consoles? If it were Borderlands 3, and it was releasing on last gen consoles, I'd agree it was a mistake. If it was a situation where we're 3-4 years down the road and PS3/360 are really on their last legs...mistake. But the last gen is still very much alive and well, you already have the first two parts of the narrative on those consoles, so leave it there and start fresh with the next entry in the series on PS4/Xbone.

Agreed.  However, there is a good bet that a lot of Borderlands players tend to be a little more hardcore (not COD/Madden only) gamers and therefore might tend to be earlier adopters of next gen.

 

One more thing, and then I'll shut up about this topic.

 

I'm also very confused as to how PS4/Xbone have been out for less than six months, and we're already at the point of "every new release must be on the new consoles."

I spent $1000 on next gen consoles.  I deserve it.   :)

If install base is a concern, why port Borderlands 2 to vita? You're likely right about their line of thinking, but I doubt it's going to do as well as they assume. Especially by the time it arrives. Without BL/BL2 sales figures in front of me it's hard to draw any conclusions, but basing their decision chiefly on the size of install bases seems short sighted. It's a gamble either way, but it can be advantageous to release early in a console's life. I'm sure Second Son is doing better than it ever would have on PS3. Eh, this just screams cash grab...more GOW: Ascension, Arkham Origins tripe (hope I'm wrong). The least they could do is put it on newer hardware.

 

The only reason Borderlands 2 is coming to Vita is because Sony is paying for it and taking all the risk.  Given the install base, it's likely going to be a money loser for Sony or at least not very profitable (and Sony probably knows it).  Also, i'm betting that the sales figures of Pre-Sequel will determine whether it gets a next gen port (despite what has been said).  It will be on PC which supposedly makes next gen console porting relatively easy.  I don't know how true that really is, but i'm sure 2K is waiting to see what the interest level is and whether they can sell the game twice to suckers like me who would probably buy it again on next gen a few months later.

 

EDIT: Captain beat me to the first point (and possibly the second).

It's 2014 and we have the most powerful consoles ever and we're getting 8-bit games. I like retro and all but even if they could just go 16-bit rather than little blobs I'd be happier.

I agree.  I'm not a big retro game fan in the first place, but retro graphics used to be quaint and unique a couple of years ago.  Now it seems like overload.  I'm sure it's tough to make a great looking game on a smaller budget, but it seems like developers could make some improvements and still keep it reasonable.

 

I think the retro fad is starting to fade.  I'm sure it will stick around, but I think a lot of gamers will start looking at it with a more skeptical eye in the future.

Yes.

 

 

Someone talk me into or out of getting a Wii-U.  I could use certificates and pick it up for the price of a king size reeses pieces and get $50 back... 

I'm tempted but passing simply because i'm expecting more and more incentives and better bundles in the coming months.  I've waited this long, so I might as well wait a little longer.  I suppose WiiU could get enough of a boost from Mario Kart to prevent some of those incentives for awhile, so maybe i'm wrong.

Hate to be "that guy" but I just looked up the achievement lists for Bioshock and Xcom.  Decided to pass.  No patience for collectibles in Bioshock, and I'm not doing 5 playthroughs in any game (i.e., Xcom).

 

Picking up Titanfall in a little bit, and then Watch Dogs in May, between those and the free GwG, I think I'm good.  Will save my BB credit for another day.

If you pass on Bioshock and XCOM simply because of how achievements are structured, you're doing it wrong.  If you've already played those games and are thinking of rebuying them that makes more sense.

 

Bioshock, Borderlands, and XCOM are all great, fun, and enjoyable (at least for one playthrough) - whether you get achievements or not.

So I got an email over the weekend about a survey on my opinion on PlayStation Now, but I haven't gotten an activation key or email yet.  Anyone else in this boat?

Tell them their service is lacking.

Next Borderlands Game Is Pre-Sequel Set On The Moon for 360/PS3/PC (Athena The Gladiator, Wilhelm The Enforcer, Nisha The Lawbringer and Fragtrap) https://www.gamepoin...et-on-the-moon/

I love Borderlands, but I sure wish this was next gen.  I'm also wondering if this is kind of like SR4 that simply started out as DLC and they decided to convert it to a full game.

Being anti-gay marriage is being hateful, be honest. Hiding behind the religion excuse is just a convenient way to mask it. There is literally no rational reason to be against gay marriage except spite.

I love gay people, I just don't want them to marry each other. Yeah, okay, that makes sense.

As someone who believes in God and believes in the Bible and believes that the Bible says homosexuality is wrong, I don't believe in gay marriage.  I don't hate anyone.  I just can't condone something that is against what I believe God says.  According to what I believe, God is making that choice for me, not myself - I am simply choosing to follow what God said.  To accuse others of hate simply because they have a different viewpoint than you is just as narrow minded.  Sure, there are some people filled with hate but I wish those on the opposite side of any issue would not jump so quickly to assume those extremes and have some sort of understanding that there are reasons for every viewpoint.

 

Believe it or not, though, I won't fight gay marriage even though i'm opposed to it.  It is impossible and foolish for me to try to force my beliefs on others through a non-religious government and society that doesn't care about God or the Bible (or at least doesn't care in the way I do).  This is one thing that I wish those who oppose gay marriage would understand better.  If I want to fight gay marriage, then I also have to fight everything else in society that I think is against the Bible and I frankly don't have the time or energy for that futile exercise.

I just wanted to remind everyone here that Fez is awesome.  Because people are saying things to the contrary.  That's not cool people.  And my opinion means more because I am CEO of me.

I don't know if I am willing to listen to you until you tell us your views on gay marriage.  Also, please include Phil Fish's view on gay marriage.

I'm kind of upset at the Plus list simply because they just recently had a sale that included Pixeljunk Monsters and Stealth Inc. and I bought both games.  I thought Sony stopped doing sales on titles that would be free in the near future.

 

Luckily, my rule has been to only get dirt cheap digital games recently so I didn't spend too much.  Still, it's kind of annoying.

 

EDIT: Also, isn't Stealth, Inc. crossbuy?  It lists PS3 only on the list.
