From Dust is a 8/10 in my opinion. Not great, but i had fun with it and played it through. The physics are really nice. It was just missing a little bit of magic to bring it home. Basically, i think if the gameplay appeals to you you'll dig it. $5 would be a better price point though.


See, now reading the opinions of people who enjoyed it make me feel like I should give it another go. What the hell, I've already bought it, right? :)

i think it depends what perspective you have going into it.
I was kinda expecting populous hd, with like a sandbox to build and take away etc.
It seems to be a bit more linear than i expected. im an 'ok' gamer, and i kept getting stuck or just losing interest on like the 3rd or so mission where i had to save people from the wave attack or something and i must have been playing too casual cuz i kept losing people or not making them move fast enough away from the water and i was like argh screw this and yeah havnt touched it in a year. maybe ill play it tonite or tomorrow for an hour and get a better opinion to tell ya, but idk, like brodaz, i played the demo thought cool and then played the game for a few hours and havnt touched it since. but i mean, for 7.50, you really can't go wrong if you are interested in it. just skip your next meal or something ;)

n yeah, cag has made me crazy about dollars. im like for $5 id go for it, but 7.50...hmmm, lol. like $2.50 makes a huge difference. its just minutes of work, but still, haha. and this is coming from a guy that paid like 70 for chrono trigger on release back in the day. to be young and have way too much money again.

Totally binged today: Noby Noby Boy, Closure, Alien Breed (Vita), Critter Crunch, Ecolibrium, PS All Stars DLC, Final Fantasy Origins, Final Fantasy IV, Fnal Fantasy V and Dissidia Duodecim.

My backlog is absurd.

I'm surprised nobody really enjoyed From Dust. I definitely did, it felt like something new and different, and I really enjoyed how a lot of the levels had several different solutions. You could pretty much do whatever you want to get through the level as long as you kept your followers safe, and it was fun trying different strategies. It was even fun failing because it meant you could go back and redo everything you did, but slightly change your strategy to make sure you didn't make the same mistake as last time.

Building mountains and valley to redirect lava and rivers was great, you can pretty much sculpt the levels however you like. Slowly watching your world evolve and comparing it to what you actually started with felt really cool to me. Overall it was an extremely unique experience for me. It ended up being my favorite game from the Xbox Summer of Arcade program that year, ahead of even Bastion.

Help?

FF7 - 1.3GB, PS AllStars - 1.3GB - Free space on a 4GB card? 595MB

My save files aren't THAT big.


You never get the full, raw size after formatting with any storage medium, so your 4GB card is probably a useable 3.6GB. My 16GB memory card is displaying 14GB of useable space, 2502MB free.

Add some patches to that, and it goes away quick. I think PS All-Stars already had a patch if I'm not mistaken. In fact, the 1.07 patch is available now, and it's 825MB. Ouch.


I'm aware of that but 1.3GBs basically missing? It won't let me update PSAS :|


Read my response to your post again. 2.6GB worth of content on a 4GB memory card means you have about 900MB-1GB of additional space to work with. Of that 1GB, I'm assuming about ~400MB has gone to patches, maybe system updates, etc. and you mentioned one of your games is PS All-Stars. That game has already been patched and I'm betting that's where part of the remaining 1GB went.

What the hell... Where's the $10 Catherine people were mentioning earlier? I could get Valkyrie Chronicles 2, but I rented it and there was far too much grinding compared to the first game.

it was a mistake someone made -- it's $20.

i was all ready to buy VC2 earlier then i realized it was a price drop and not a sale. which means i can wait. so maybe i will, even though i love VC.

I remember that level. I lost several times there too. What got to me was the pathfinding of your "followers" would some times just go nuts and people would wander way off course. You'd have to make land bridges like 3x as wide as you'd expect, and I too thought it'd be more like a sandbox puzzle game. The time restrictions and singular focus dampened my fun. I think it was a volcano level that got me to finally give up.

Am I the only one that noticed Closure downloaded with one click? At least I think it was one click, shocked me. Normally the free PS+ games take 5+ clicks to checkout with the new redesign.

They changed it again where the free games download in one click. That's why a lot of people complained about the glitch in the pricing of the games such as Alien breed and NBA 2k13.

So any good help sites for Media Go? Just bought a PSP GO and everytime I try to initiate a transfer of a downloaded game to my PSP it triggers a blue screen of death and the computer crashes. Tried searching on google but didn't find much anything of help.

I thought about getting BG&E and Rayman 3 on sale but decided there isn't much reason for me to play them again.

The DLC missions give a lot of experience so not that much grinding is required.

Finally noticed the PSP/Gamestop deals in the "Alternate Deals" section on the first page and snagged Disgaea, Disgaea 2, and Disgaea Infinite to download on my Vita.

How long have those (and the other various PSP RPGs) been on sale for download from Gamestop.com? I'm thinking about getting some of the others, too.

Closure is pretty good. I have no idea what critter crunch is, looking it up now.

EDIT: Looks like some kind of Bejewled/Zuma game with characters that my wife will adore. Split screen play supported. $1.4 Sold.

You don't need a credit card to have PS Plus. Go buy a Year Subscription from your local store. No credit card information needed.

Closure looks like a lot of fun and freebie days are always exciting. Why the heck would anyone want the weekly schedule to change?

I'm not seeing a lot of feedback on Derrick the Deathfin? The trailer looks neat and it's only $4. Does anyone have any thoughts on the full game?

I'm definitely tempted by the confusingly "new" fourth game called Alien Breed. I'm a sucker for classic games and I never played the original. $8 is still too high for me to bite on it for now. I'll wait for $5 or less and, judging from the path the other 3 have taken, I don't think I'll be waiting too long.

Over a year now. They were pricematching an NIS sale in late 2011 and never readjusted the prices back to their normal prices.

You read it. You can't unread it.

I logged in last night well after the store updated for this week and the FF games were still on sale. I was on around 10pm ET.

VoG for life!
