Wowzers! What great prices! I want to spend a dollar on each of those games but I already have them all. Please oh please make the expansions be on sale too.

I think I'll get Monsters for the PSP though.

And I thought Eden was great at full price. I loved it so much, I would buy it again for a dollar if I could.

Hot damn at the Pixeljunk sale. Already got Sidescroller when it was on sale for 1/2 off, but gonna get Eden (a shame Encore isn't gonna be discounted), probably Racers (anyone wanna vouch for that?), Shooter, & Shooter 2. $8 for 4 PSN games is a pretty awesome deal.

Nice to get the rest of the PJ games i don't have. The best is only $1 for each one.
I think the shooter series is excellent so its will be nice to play the others.

Yup, Racers was my favorite of all the PJ games. Good times with friends and working my way up the leaderboard. My list goes like this:

Racers
Monsters
SideScroller
Shooter 1
Eden

Haven't played Shooter 2.

I'm probably the only person who would rank them like this.

Whats so bad about Pixel Junk Eden?!? I mean, for $1 I'm gonna buy it, but I was curios about the thoughts on it?

Probably, but trophies CAN act as added encouragement to further explore games. They can for me, anyway.


Oh, for sure, I agree. I'm just saying that they shouldn't limit your exploration of games either, especially if you want to explore them. You can get the Trine 2 plat by chapter 7. It's entirely up to you if you want to finish the game.

I actually really liked Eden but getting 100% trophies is really tough.

My big gripes about it are that the controls aren't perfect, and the entire game is platforming upwards, and you have a time limit on each level. So a couple big falls and you start all the way back at the bottom, and you then have to collect more time and then start all the way upward again. It did nothing but frustrate and bore me.

And I agree with you, my personal motivation to further explore the world just wasn't quite high enough. I think with trophies it would have pushed me over the edge.

And in re-reading what I originally typed, I probably shouldn't have used it a negative critique of the game. Rather, I should have just noted that it is a personal pet peeve of mine when trophies are implemented in that way.

I can honestly say that I don't recommend PixelJunk Eden for $1.

Monsters, 2nd Lap, and Shooter 1 are all no-brainers for $1 (although I'm not the biggest fan of the Shooter series either). I'd recommend Sidescroller for $5 as well, that's what I paid for it and had a good but brief time with it.

HUH.... and Eden is the only one I actually like.

Just wanted to say thanks for this thread, no telling how many deals I'd miss if I didn't check. Updating the title is a huge help.

I have ALL the PJ shooters and enjoyed them a lot.

If you have any interest in the PJ games this is a great sale and worth the purchase.

I will be be getting PJ Eden & PJ racer since those are the ones I'm missing.

Upcoming Deals

PS3
PixelJunk Eden - $1 - Begins 5/8, Ends 5/15
PixelJunk Monsters - $1 - Begins 5/8, Ends 5/15
PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap - $1 - Begins 5/8, Ends 5/15
PixelJunk Shooter - $1 - Begins 5/8, Ends 5/15

I have never played any pixeljunk game, but for $1 I'm willing to give them a try. I'm leaning toward buying pixeljunk eden, don't know about the other 3 yet. Any suggestions?

Edit: Lol I just realize the posts above mines are all discussing about pixeljunk, thats what I get for reading the OP only. >.<

Edit2: After watching some videos and reviews of the games. I think PixelJunk Shooter is more of what I want to play instead of Eden.

Great PixelJunk sale.

I think I'm actually going to wait for Eden to go on sale on Steam. My reasoning: the Steam version comes with the Encore expansion. Even with the $1 PSN sale, if I want the full game it's going to cost $7. Hopefully Q Games is down with the Steam Summer Sale.

I spent many frustrated hours getting 100% on Pixel Junk Eden. Game is controller smashingly hard to complete. I'm not a masochistic gamer at all, but that game taunted me until I got all the trophies. I never picked up the Encore, and am glad to use the excuse "not on sale" to keep me from trying it.

Loved Shooter, couldnt get into shooter 2 for some reason, even though it is basically the same game, and Monsters is your above average tower defense game with hard trophies.

Will pick up 2nd lap for a buck. Thanks OP!

I just finished Trine 2 about a half hour ago. It was as good as(if not better than) the first game. But man oh man talk about lucking out on finishing off the last boss. I got in the last hit required to get rid of him after about 5+ continues.:-#

Okay, I get what you sayin. For me, it depends on how much I like the game. For example, with Rayman Origins, I thought I was going to like it so much that I would go for 350 Lums in every level which gives you a medal in-game, but no trophy. It turns out, the game really annoyed me so I said screw that and moved on.

Haha, good thing you didn't get Encore then, cause Encore was waaay harder.

I too started out wanting to 100% every level in Rayman, but some of the portions of some of the levels were just :bomb::bomb::bomb:.

So I too gave up after a while.

The controls take time to get used to them, but once I got the rhythm of the platforming down, it was a lot of fun.

I'm not sure how far you got, but about halfway through the game, the levels start getting really interesting with how they change up the gameplay. Here are some of my recordings with the in-game tools (spoilers for those that want to go in fresh):

Wow, I must look like a heathen but I never played any of the Pixeljunk games, mostly due to my pile of shame and all. But I still have some PSN credit loafing about so I may have to scoop up some of these gems. Never would have thought I would see a sale like this on a console.

Yeah, I never made it that far, nice to see that there are some gameplay changes. However, just watching that reminds me of how frustrating I found that game to be.

PSN can surprise ya sometimes. I remember scoring Uno and Tank Battles for $1, and the Penny Arcade bundle for $3. But ya, these PJ deals feel a lot more like PC sales than console ones.

Great thoughts, Tyler, and I pretty much felt the exact same way with Eden regarding the controls and daunting vertical platforming. A couple of plays with it were enough for me. That being said, I can't believe these are going on sale for $1! I would pretty much buy any PSN game for $1 but for some of the more original titles on PSN? If you don't already have these it's a no-brainer. Sadly (or not as I've had the privilege to play them already), I already do have all of them.

Wow you sound like a douche. You really just said that if you feel like your teammates arent up to par you will quit the match and leave them to lose worse. What a shmuck

Your like the video game equivalent of Lebron James. Maybe very skilled but lacking in all the qualities to win against difficult odds. So you have to align yourself with other proven winners with better leadership qualities to be successful.

Sounds to me like he just wants teammates worth a shit so that when he plays hard, he has skilled players playing hard to back him up. What's the problem again?

I was playng Awesomenauts last night and I entered a match in progress. When I started my team already had one of our own turrets destroyed and another half dead. But I stayed anyway - winning isn't everything.

Actually, the players I was playing with and against weren't all that great, so I was dominating the match. We got all the way to the other team's base and I was lighting it up (using Lonestar and throwing 3 dynamites - best way I've found so far to take out turrets and bases by myself).

And then.... my controller died. I ended up at 13/2 and my team lost. I don't care about winning and losing that much, but losing like that after a glorious comeback really got me down.

That's cool but I feel for your eyes if it's anything over about a 32" screen.
