Awesome deals, I have all of these I purchased fairly recently except eyepet and kung fu riders and alien vs predators which I will pass on I guess. Love to see Mafia 2 up there.

Anytime you see him trolling just report him. That goes for everyone here. It's the easiest way to get rid of garbage from here

Or use the site's "ignore" feature. It's possibly one of the greatest features available for reading through threads full of useless posts.

that still doesn't stop the person from derailing the thread. Unless every person puts him on ignore. Anyway I'm hopeful the mods will notice his behavior and at least warn him.

I played the demo for Eternal Sonata and wasn't really feeling it. I'd bite for $10 and under.

I suppose - you'd be surprised how little effect a troll has if you mention the ignore feature and that user's name in the same sentence ;)

It's only a "RPG" in the most cursory sense, there's very little dialog or story to speak of, and you will _not_ be spending much time on inventory management or kak like that. At least that was the case in the Asian import I had, which I understand to have been more or less the same as the North American version, save for a couple of object and spell names. I would say it's about 95% hardcore tactical action/adventure, 5% RPG. I've finished exactly three "traditional" JRPGs in my life, none since the original Playstation/Saturn days, _hate_ the genre, but flippin' LOVED Demon's Souls....it's really a mistake IMO to pass on it just because some reviewers or retailers lazily shoehorned the title into some particular genre.

Dammit. Was hoping for Bayonetta, but I'll jump on 3D Dot Game Heroes

I was thinking that too since now it's probably only going to be GH. But how can you be sure?

After reading the IGN review it has me really apprehensive to try it. It states that when you die you practically start over from scratch with nothing. As often as I die in these types of games I am afraid it will really piss me off. :cry:

Is there a demo of this game at all?

Even at $16, I have a hard time recommending Eternal Sonata. Just couldn't finish it on the 360, and I wanted to like it so much, because the story's concept was quite interesting. But the writing was very juvenile, in my opinion. I almost always finish RPGs that I start, but this was one that I gave up on.


I did the same and sold it soon after. However, once it was released i re-bought it for PS3 and ended up loving it and finishing the entire game.

Also hopefully amazon will pricematch since I have amazon credit that I'd be willing to part with for a few of the games (specifically Demon's Souls, Katamari Forever, and Kung Fu Rider)

Edit: Seems amazon dropped their prices on these games since i last checked, may just pick them up even though there $2-3 more expensive

I'm not sure if there's still a demo or not. It's true that it's a difficult game, but it's nowhere near the Everest it's made out to be by some. You only lose unexchanged souls when you die, no weapons/armor/equipment, and if you can fight your way back to the spot where you died on your ensuing life, you can recover everything you lost. Once you pick up Total Protection/Warding, only a few of the remaining bosses (namely Maneater and False King) will present a substantial challenge. Basically, it's just very unforgiving of lapses in concentration; if you are prepared the give the game your full attention as you're playing it, I have to imagine you'll get a lot out of it.

FWIW, despite having spent thousands of hours playing vids, I would say I was only "great" at a small handful of them--namely Quake, TF2, the Myth series and the defunct 2k football series. None of these have mechanics anything like DS, yet I beat it without much frustration. I really think it has to be in the discussion for Game of the Decade.

I still can't reconcile this love for it with all the claims that it's super hard.

Just because of all the love I'd rent it if I were doing Gamefly at the moment, or buy it for $10 or something I guess, but I'm 95% sure I'll hate it it sounds like.

Bought 3D Dot Game Heroes at launch though :)

Aw man, they are oos on Katamari Forever.
I was just looking and they sell this games at Best Buy for $29.99 and that is for PRE-OWNED
They don't even sell it new.
Walmart only sells it online and it's for $49.99.
That is madness.

I think these are great prices for Demon's Souls, Eternal Sonata, Katamari Forever, and 3D Dot Game Heroes, especially if you are not charged tax.
