SquareEnix could learn a thing or two from Rockstar's pricing model.

I have to say both GTA3 and Sonic CD are both past my expectations. GTA3 is very well done I can't stop playing, surprised how well it works on my ipad1 after it was supposed only work for ipad2 at first. It may be the best iPad game ever. I only played Sonic cd for a game and it's pretty good too, it's nice that it's full screen.

You would think in this economy they would try to cut (square) taxes to help stimulate (sales) growth.

The latest Starbucks free app is Star Walk. Usually $3, it gives you a sky map for wherever you may be. Pretty cool stuff.

I've got a ton of codes for the Starbucks apps if anyone is interested. I'll add them to the spreadsheet as soon as I get a chance.


Sounds good, I almost bought this about a month ago, would love a shot at getting it free.

Psssshhh Square? Who you kidding. They and Capcom will be the last two companies to realize that you can make more by having a sale now and then vs keeping your prices inflated so high that even when on sale people laugh at the price. Believe it or not as bad as their IOS prices and sales are their even worse on steam(which is notorious for having amazing sales!).

SquareEnix does alright on Steam. But that's mostly on the Eidos side of things.

Sonic and GTA3 are both exceptional. Running on my iPad 2 they are incredibly solid. Sonic feels exactly like playing it on the tv, no lag no weird controls like more recent sonic iOS releases. GTA ... damn, it's at least running at PC level graphics-wise, no muddy ps2 graphics here. Smooth framerate, controls are optimized for play on the iPad.

Bottom line - buy both of these now, they are exceptional and raise the bar for ports.

Sonic CD is great - plays very well - though I don't understand the Past/Future bit. I hit a sign that says one or the other and it spins and... nothing happens? Then later for no apparent reason I jump to one or the other. Plus I'm not sure what the difference is other than the look. In any case it's good. Probably even better once I understand that bit. :)

Also, Cave's Bug Princess is awesome! I like the relative simplicity, with only 2 buttons - that works better for me. Control of the ship is of course still great. Also it's universal! I've only played it on my iPhone 4 so far. I can't wait to try it on my iPad 2. Well worth $4.99.

TouchArcade said the controls in GTA3 were iffy, though they still loved it. Anyone have a different opinion about the controls in that game?

EDIT: Ahh, what the heck, just bought GTA3, so I guess I'll find out!

So apparently there's lots of crashing problems with Bug Princess. I did have problems with crashing on my iPhone 4 (seemed to be related to OpenFeint) until I rebooted, but others have said that only temporarily fixes the problem. I guess I'll find out. Hopefully a fix is forthcoming.

The regular Giana Sisters for iPhone is also on sale for $0.99, the lowest it's ever been (usually $5!). Let me throw in a quick plug for this game - old fogeys like me remember this as a classic C-64/Amiga title. It's a very good Mario-like platformer, I recommend checking it out. There's a free version that you can use for a demo.

It follows the same story but if you're expecting the GameCube version, you will be disappointed.

Just picked up GTA3 and played for about 5 mins at work on my 4S. I noticed very minor FPS stuttering here and there, and the controls are of course not as sharp as a PS2 controller, BUT it's otherwise incredible. Did my first Luigi mission, ran over countless peds, launched my car off a ramp... this is going to make holiday air travel much easier.

The only thing that I don't like, is that I wish there was a way to go back and forth playing GTA3 on my 4s iPod touch, and iPad 2 and have it be the same save.

Perfect Cell is pretty fun. Definitely grab it while it's free.

I grabbed Edge. I had purchased Edge Extended. I like that game, but it got awful difficult later on. Now I'll have some easy levels again... before running into the wall. LOL.
