Did you feel it was too short? I've been trying to decide whether or not to buy the game since it came out on Tuesday.


I think it's great value and quite a lot of fun! I'm surprised admiralvic's done!
I am trying to kill Cerberus :/

Buy it. It is discounted on PSN Store as well if you go digital ($35.99). I picked it up this morning after just a little time with demo and I am glad I did. I am really enjoying it.

Almost done with Thomas Was Alone as well. Very surprised (pleasantly) by this game. It is not at all what I expected it to be. I never thought I would get so invested into those little (sometimes big) blocks. Cool story and narration.

Yes, avalon pacts are the only thing you can do online.

That fight gave me some problems, but it's not impossible. I strongly suggest equipping at least 2 stone / rock element items and 1 poison element item. As soon as the fight starts, start hitting him with whatever stone item you have (ideally a projectile) and wait for his to get in petrified hell. When he's in PH, pull out something high damage and attack for a couple of seconds. Once you feel your time is running out, hit him with the poison item. This is what they call a "skillful attack" and will INSTANTLY remove the hell, but give him another stun. Pull out the stone item and try to get him in PH yet again, this will be harder, but can be done (I've never done the same hell 3 times). If you're lucky enough to pull this off, do some light damage and then hit him with poison again. This should bring him down to nothing / kill him if you're strong enough and as long as he's critical... you shouldn't have a problem (he will start falling down and is a lot slower). Beyond this, attack his spear (limits his attacks) and dog heads (stuns him), not a whole lot else to say besides this. If you're still having serious problems, I might be able to do a higher level mission to give you a more powerful tool to win.

Finally, you can dodge his lightning attack by evasively rolling towards it (I guess it goes "under" you).

Cerberus is pretty simple once you get used to him.

Do what admiral mentioned and also bring in a shield with you.

When he gets down on all four and charges at you, have the shield out and he'll bounce off of it to be stunned for a while.

The less HP he has, the shorter the duration of the stuns so really lay into him when you're able.

Also, always try to destroy his heads as they'll trigger another stun and also it's his weakpoint so you'll be doing the most amount of damage there.

thanks guys!
I'll usually bring a Shield and Golem for him along with the Attack-boosting Fruit Tree
I "specialize" in Homing spells... Eggs... Morphs.. but they seem largely useless against him..

I should add both of you to PSN!

Most bosses are pretty straight forward, though I did one on Magusar. The only exceptions are the mino and lev (though there is only one of those guys), but even then they're straight forward to a degree. Most bosses will die with relative ease (like I can solo a rank 10 Hydra with minimal to no problem), just when you get the double bosses... things become hard. Probably the griffin / phoenix combo fight is the hardest mission in the whole game.

expected GTA5 and PS4 launch dates line up pretty much exactly with the launch date of our first new family member, which... means as much as i want both, i'm worried i won't have time for either.

but man, i want both... if only time and money weren't in the way, lol.

Only money is in the way, not time. Newborns dont care much about your day/night cycle. You'll be up at all hours for the first few weeks. I got in a lot of gaming with Number 1.

altho, pro tip, don't play too many shooters all the time with them on your lap.
my son has been actively (passively) brainwashed by me setting him on my lap since he was born and playing cod all the time. now everything is a gun and he wants to shoot everything. crazy

I tried looking some pages back and didn't see MGS Portable Ops vs Portable Ops Plus comparison. Is the basic breakdown:

Portable Ops:
Has 1P story mode.
Has MP with possibly closed servers.

Portable Ops Plus:
Has 1P Infinite mode (random missions).
Has expanded MP with possibly closed servers.

Is this right? And which are recommended?

I liked the story in Portable Ops. If the servers for both are closed, you'd be better off just getting Portable Ops. Plus was geared more toward multiplayer

It can still be hard, though. My first child wanted to be held constantly, which made playing games hard. I got pretty far on Xbox Bejeweled Infinte mode though, lol.

After doing a little research, which I technically should I done, it appears that PO and PO+ servers were shut down last year. Guess I'll go PO for the story, thanks. It does make me wonder why PO+ is there, if multiplayer is gone...

I can still find time to game while watching my little one, but the deep immersive games like Skyrim are harder to do. And any game with cutscenes that can't be paused can be really frustrating (your child is guaranteed to wake up and start crying at just the wrong moment!).

I've found my Vita to be wonderful for squeezing in game time while watching my child. You can always pause any game and a lot of portable games are designed for pick-up-and-play. I just got a Vita a month ago and I LOVE it. I almost think Sony should actively market it to Dads!

BBCSE has none of that. It's likely the easiest FG to handle aside from Tekken and the cheap PSN ones like VF2/5 and Sonic Fighters. The challenges are extremely easy (well, as required for the trophies) since you need to do so few, and then you have people with BS crap like Ragna that any scrub can use and be strong with (god I hated playing Ragnas online).

Basically, if you just want simple inputs, it's fine. There's very few of those 1-2 frame links from SF, insane motions like KOF, or super situational combos like MvC. They exist, but you can enjoy yourself plenty without ever needing to learn them.


Great to know, thanks for the input. Just bumped it off near the top of my Vita backlog in that case. I can actualy do okay in MvC thanks to the one-button super combos (or whatever they're actually called).
