^Thanks. I think I'll pass on the DLC if it's really that tough. I do not have the patience (or even the talent) that some of you guys have. If I'm not going to be able to beat it, it will feel like a wasted $1.

I platinumed Spelunker HD and it took me repeated attempts (as in losing all 50 of my lives) just to make it to 1-5. Granted, a lot of those were lost getting mural pieces and once you grab it, you don't have to worry about it again so I think I'll be able to beat them, it'll just take forever. I don't know about the co-op levels.

Also, how tough are the Spelunker HD DLC levels?

I just barely got around to playing the main game, after turning on the rope assist and learning the rules of the game, I got through the first 10 levels fairly easily, plus with the fact that you can save and go back at any time, even if the game is hard it seems like I should still be able to get through it.

So, is the DLC like way way way harder? I bought DLC pack #2 and beat the first 2 levels, though they were pretty damn tough. I know what I'm asking isn't exactly easy to answer, but any input would be great. And for anyone who's played both Spelunker and Super Meat Boy, are the DLC levels harder, about the same, or easier than Dark World in SMB?

Thanks.


Honestly speaking, they're pretty easy. HOWEVER there are some EXTREMELY difficult parts. Additionally they follow the same logic as the original game, so levels don't play get progressively harder. I would say EX levels rank in this order...

2, 8, 4, 1, 7, 3, 5 , 6 , 9 (easiest if you have a good partner online, but hardest alone.)

Currently EX 10 isn't out, so that could fall just about anywhere. In the end, unless you can figure out the levels quickly, you're going to break a controller. Then again, you can ask someone more knowledgable than me on CAG... I only beat EX 1 - 9 on the Japanese version (100% Mural / All trophies) and EX 1 - 8 on the American version (100% Mural / All trophies)

Edit:

Forgot to mention it, but I've been uploading hands on videos for over 6 months now. You can get an idea of what the first 1 - like 4 floors in each area are like.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Anybody playing Zen Pinball 2 and having a hard time getting 150 million for the trophy buy the Plants vs Zombies table. I played it 3 times and got 85 million. I'm not great at pinball as CAGs on my friends list can tell. It's a very fun table and looks beautiful on the PS3 and especially on the Vita.

I got my 2000 pt. trophy tonight on the PS3. After I played a game on my on Vita it popped. I heard some people were having trouble getting both to show up.

I got the spelunker dlc, but I won't be touching it until I finish Ni no Kuni. If anyone is still playing by then, I'll look for some co-op action.

Just as a warning, the PSN Play credit has an expiration date of October 7, so don't wait around to redeem that credit if you want it.


Does anyone know who to contact if you didn't receive the message? I got an email that my PSN Play credit was waiting, but nothing in my message box. Is this a Sony Entertainment Network problem or a Playstation support problem?

Machinarium dropped in Europe last week and was free for PS+

Crossing my fingers that we get it for free as well. It's a beautiful little point and click title.

Though unannounced, I hope JSRHD gets a 20% PS+ discount. Probably won't happen, but I guy can hope.

I'd much rather enjoy the benefit of a discount than getting the game a week earlier for the same price. Though I wonder if there'll be a bunch deal for when the Vita version comes out & you can get both that and the PS3 version for a discount.

Thanks for the heads up on the pvz table. I was able to knock out two trophies with my first game on the spiderman table (2000 pt, and team points) but I had no clue how I was going to get that 150mil trohpy.

As someone who dislikes the Trophy system and doesn't bother chasing them (I saw people discussing this title in terms of buying it strictly for trophies, which is why I mention it), I will say that Daytona USA has enough content and polish to warrant the $3/$5. The game handles just like you remember Daytona USA handling, with all the powerslides and drafting that made it great. The graphics are smoothly scaled to 720p and the game runs a flawless 60fps with zero dips, which I think is important for an arcade port with precision handling techniques. There's wheel support, a variety of challenge modes and time trials, and even the old "CONGRATULATIONS You just lost your sponsors!" message made it in. If only I had someseat overheads blaring "Daaayyyytoonnaaaa" in my ears, I'd be right back in 1994.

Before you call them easy, you should mention that you've played this game for over 1,000 hours.

*edit* Actually, I take this back. I thought I read that you said that somewhere but I can't find it so I'm not sure.


I played the original for a while, but my save file only reads 80 hours (this is including the EX levels, getting the platinum and all that). My pre EX level US save only read 10 hours and that WAS with the platinum (I held the fastest platinum time of 1 day 2 hours according to PSNProfiles). I also did Spelunker Black, which is a different version of the same game. My save for that is about 40 hours. This means I only have around 150 hours of game time. Yes, this is still quite high, but thats over a 3 year period. Finally I didn't say they were easy per say, I just said that they're easy with some extremely difficult parts.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

It's cool. I know where you're coming from, but at the same time I am offering a different opinion. Plenty of people thought the original game was hard, but I had no issues beating the US version in 1 sitting and getting to cycle 2 level 1-1 with 99 lives. Due to this, I wrote them in order of difficulty based off my experience. Like 9 was a JOKE, me and a friend got all the mural pieces on our first run and beat it with 49 lives remaining. With this in mind I also mentioned I uploaded videos of each area, because I strongly believe the title deserves more attention. You can find them all (EX 1 - 9) on my Youtube, with 5 - 10 minutes each.

It's also on sale on Xbox Live but my 1Tb hard drive in my PS3 made the decision for me.

You think the Wallace Wells/Online DLC delay was because of the base game being free tomorrow?

I don't know this week's update looks decent for me, $40 for Max Payne 3 is a fantastic deal, I already have it on steam otherwise I would grab it. Also we get Scott Pilgrim for free, been looking forward to that all week

Really depends on which table you excel at to reach the goal, there's no restriction on what table to play to get the 150 mill trophy.

The only thing I can say is that the SFII table is gives out multiballs and save balls like there's no tomorrow due to its simplicity. Though expect grinding.

I read someone say they got 200 mil on the PvZ table on their first try. Yeah, there's no restrictions, but this obviously seems like one of the easier ones to do it on.
