Labyrinth Legends (this weeks free ps+ game)

i wasn't sure what i was getting going in, i'm a huge fan of dungeon crawlers (nethack, etc) but the vids made it look arcadey... and yea, it's
1 part (easy) dungeon crawler (no permadeath)
1 part zelda style fast arcade combat (hearts for health, find equipment)
1 part puzzler

basically, you go into a dungeon (there are many, each with with secret rooms, 5 stars to find, optional time challenge, etc). you're a knight, though you'll eventually unlock at least one teammate (ai controlled for help in combat and solving puzzles). combat is super simple and very zelda-y... swing sword, etc.

i'm only done the first 5 dungeons, but i'm actually pretty impressed so far. puzzles are pretty darn cool, the game plays fast and easy. dungeon design is definitely where the game shines so far... teammate ai isn't perfect, but it isn't really meant to be (hard to explain).

recommended. not sure if i'd pay more than $5, but for free it's an easy play.


Tempted to re-buy Jeanne D'Arc which I never finished on PSP, but I seem to remember it being extremely difficult. Enemies spawning on top of you, turn count limits, restrictions like "no one is allowed to die". Not sure if I'm willing to try again at $15.


as others have said, it's not a particularly hard game. very fun though. if i remember correctly, there are some levels where when you advance to a certain point you can get ambushed, but that's pretty standard in SRPGs and as long as you're advancing tactically it's never an issue. if anything, i found the game too easy because i accidentally leveled up my chars a bit too much. had a blast with that game.

how is rainbow moon? Ive been meaning to try it, but the graphical style was really lame so i never gave it a look. I did hear decent things thougth. Is it a dungeon crawler? or a FFT style game?

Oh and if it is worth getting, is it worth paying the xtra buck for the 'premium' edition? Im a PS+ member so its not a big difference

Anybody else download the ps+ version of Borderlands 1 and bought the Bundle with both games? Borderlands 1 still says it will expire when ps+ does even after redownloading and installing it.

You have to set it up through the Content Manager app.

Online Storage > Vita to Online Storage

Click the "i" button to set each game to automatically upload saves for you and then it'll upload them later on while the system is sleeping. Or if you want to do it right then, just click select all and upload them manually. Card saves can also be uploaded as long as you have the card in the slot at that time.

Then go to the Settings app. PlayStation Network > Automatic Update Settings > Upload Saved Data to Online Storage


Thanks. I realized I've never set this up.

Why is the Borderlands Bundle more expensive than Borderlands 1 + 2 seperately? Are either of these versions the GOTY edition?

I really don't like Gearbox, but it's hard to turn down the first game at $7.

Edit: I think the front page post is in error, isn't the Borderlands bundle $19.99 for PS+ers? That would make more sense lol.

Edited by rcerboss, 10 April 2013 - 02:18 PM.

well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

Kingdoms of Amalur is a must buy at $20. I love that game. If you were bored of it before, try playing a different character like the Thief-Mage hybrid. Yggdra Union at only $5 is a no-brainer. That is one of those rare PSP titles that I just couldn't put down until I finish the game. It's a gem, and so is Jean D'arc. It's one of my favorite role playing game over-all, on all systems.

Has anyone played ---

Hyperballoid HD - $2.99
The Testament of Sherlock Holmes - $19.99

Also --

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - $19.99 - Permanent Price Drop
solid game. got bored after around 20 hours, but solid game. combat/weapons are really well implemented, but the characters/plot is a bit meh.

Yggdra Union - PSP - $4.99
an absolute steal. really cool combat system. i have this on my psp account, will rebuy to my vita.

Jeanne D’Arc - PSP - $14.99 - Permanent Price Drop
great game. if it was 9.99 i'd rebuy.

Judging by the gameplay I watched on youtube, it's an SRPG with grid based movement/combat. Top world travel has visible monsters so that you can avoid encounters if you choose to and supports day/night system. The premium edition includes a (digital) soundtrack and a starter kit which I believe includes extra starting money (maybe pearls for skills upgrades).

If the game were more than 50% off, I'd probably bite... but seeing as it's a 1/2 discount, I may wait until the vita version releases to see if there is any bonus incentive. I'd rather have the portability on this game, given all my other SRPGs on PSN.

Hitman Absolution is an amazing game. Any of you guys who haven't played it and have EU plus, you are in for a treat.

how is rainbow moon? Ive been meaning to try it, but the graphical style was really lame so i never gave it a look. I did hear decent things thougth. Is it a dungeon crawler? or a FFT style game?

Oh and if it is worth getting, is it worth paying the xtra buck for the 'premium' edition? Im a PS+ member so its not a big difference


I don't really like ripping on games but Rainbow Moon is a very mediocre SRPG. There is really nothing worth noting about this game.

New Years backlog completed: 14/100

I love PS+...but seriously, EU is getting some great stuff lately. Not that US+ isn't full of great games, but I would really like to play some of the EU stuff. My hopefuls for next month:
Spoiler

If any of those are in May, I will be very happy indeed. Probably won't be, but one can hope;)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

EU is great for retail games but 90% of them I already bought on disc when they came out

While there are some I'd love I prefer getting psn games I never would have bought were they not given out for free

Well, to each their own. Admittedly I wasn't much of an sprg player when I first tried it, but I just have vivid memories of enemies spawning on top of my party with no notice, getting the first move and using burning auras to obliterate me. Frustrating when you have a 'keep every part member alive' requirement and they literally dogpile your weakest link. For what it's worth, one review on rpgamer says its difficulty is moderate, and one ranks it as very difficult.

Oh, many thanks to those that recommended P4G during the Persona sale! Finished it last night.. It was fantastic. Very glad I got P3P at the same time.

There's no doubt the EU PS+ does a better job at releasing newer games that usually hold more value (although you can get a copy of Hitman for $17 on Amazon at the moment). Whether that makes them "the best" region is still a matter of opinion. I've read lots of different comments for April's content, I personally prefer EU's Okami and Virtue's Last Reward, but tons of people seem to prefer Demon Souls over both of those, despite its age. I also think Malicious and Labyrinth Legends are great "obscure" choices that, even though they only cost $10 each, I much prefer over LotR War in the North.

I don't question the value of US PS Plus because it is great regardless, but the gap in desirability and value between EU and US seems to be growing wider each month.

If you're talking about value based on the going price for each game at the time it hits PS+, then you're probably right. (I'd be interested in seeing a list sorted by value, EU definitely wins for April because of VLR). But desirability is still a matter of opinion. I personally hope the US doesn't get Hitman Absolution, it does nothing for me because I've never played any of the original ones. I just bought the HD Trilogy, so by the time I get those completed and get to Absolution, I should be able to pick it up for just a few bucks.

Of course, taste and usefulness is highly subjective to each person. For me, it's pretty much all about having PS3 and Vita games, cloud save back-up, automatic updates, discounts, and the other benefits I get with US PS+ while I'd only get PS3 games on EU PS+, which wouldn't be worth it to me. It's no contest that US PS+ is way better for me.

Yeah that was one of three factors in me not renewing PS Plus during the promotion (other two being what happens once PS4 hits b/c no backwards compatibility and the other being the loyalty credit debacle.)

Yeah but EU scrapes the bottom of the barrel when it comes to overall treatment by the game industry. If Sony wants to give the street urchin of the gaming world a few extra scraps so be it.

I think that Sony is doing a smart thing by giving the worst area to live a bit more when it comes to gaming, even if it's their rental service.
