Got the two pieces of Assassin's Creed II DLC since I have the game on disc. Also got Scott Pilgrim bundle, going blind on this, hope it really is like River City Ransom.


Yeah, it's like I was saying before, to me it feels almost just like RCR, just with obviously much better graphics, a wider variety of moves, which are also a bit more over the top; but in terms of a side scrolling beat-em up and the store system where you purchase upgrades like stat increases, new moves, etc. it feels almost just like RCR to me...very fun. :)

Scott Pilgrim is worth $4.89. Just have some friends to play with you since unfortunately there is no online multiplayer.

The lack of online multiplayer on Scott Pilgrim was one of the most shocking insults of this generation, more-so than Crapcom DLC fest, or anything else that occurred.

Either way, easily one of the best beat em ups i ever played. Gotta get around to completing it one of these days lol

I'm having an absolute blast with that 5-in-1 PS3/PSP mini. Whether it's playing the pool game on my PSPGo or the PS3 on my HDtv it's so much fun. Mind ya, I wish they had allowed you to use English on the cue ball via the shoulder buttons on the PSP or the L1/L2/R1/R2 buttons on the Dual Shock 3, since there have been a bunch of times I coulda likely lined up some trick shots to sink a couple balls at once.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

And more PSP Games and Minis on the Vita Store over the next two weeks, which should be the rest of the list we've been given.


That Syphon Filter game on PS2 is crap, the only bad game of the series. I remember being at E3 2004 and at that game demo and being asked my impressions and told them they had killed Syphon Filter and walking away in disgust over that crappy game.

And I was pretty much right as although the PSP games were fantastic, they were PSP games and no one but pirates and PSP fanboys like myself played them so that series was removed from the general gaming consciousness.

I have to agree this is a very fun game. Went in blind and it was well worth the $4.89! I played the first stage and part of the second one. So much fun, I might look into the comic book that this game is based on.

Oh cool, the price was right, but I couldn't find any reviews on it. I might get this and that air hockey/ bowling mini.

Are the Monster World games separate releases? I thought it was a collection.

They're separate on PSN, but they're a collection on Xbox Live. Noooo idea why they did that.

Really? That's weird. I wonder what they're going to cost. Hopefully no more than $3.33 each, like their Xbox price.

Wow, lots of free games. I've never heard of many of them; I'll have to look them up to see if I want them. So far I've really been enjoying the free games I wouldn't have otherwise even tried (Trine 2, Hamsterball, Awesomenauts, Supersonic Rocket Powered Battlecars, Rock of Ages, etc).

Speaking of Rock of Ages, I just tried it last night. I really like the humor and sensibility of the game, and the art is neat, too. And of course the gameplay is very unique (to me, at least - haven't played any similar games).

BUT... is the online totally broken? Every time I tried for a quick match (or anything else), it popped up an error telling me there were no games, before it even had time to search. WTF?

It's not all that bad. They made some mistakes to be sure (e.g., not being able to access all of the game content unless you played online, which hardly anyone did on PS2), but when you really dig into it there is a lot to like if you are a SF fan (which is one of my all time favorite series'). I personally enjoyed it more than SF3.

And yes the PSP games are incredible. We really need a new entry in this series...

That is really shitty if it becomes more expensive for PSN users. I'd be okay with buying the games separate, but I am guessing they will be six bucks a piece or something.

I am thinking they will be $5 each, which is really shitty compared to the 3 for $10 on Xbox. I'm interested to see come Tuesday.

Glad I never picked that up when Five Below had it for $5 then.

Then again, I still have an unplayed copy of Dark Mirror waiting to be played at some point...

What free games do you mean :?: If you're referring to Frisky's post about the blogcast, that was next week's release list, not the Plus freebie list.

Oh, crap, guess I misread it :( I'm still busy with my aforementioned actual free PS+ games, though.

No Avengers Tables / Zen Pinball 2 next week either? Those games are done and sent for approval. The wait is killing me.

If you're a Pinball Arcade fan, they've got a Kickstarter going to help them pay for all of the licenses required to get The Twilight Zone table because. The basic tier is $10 to get the table on one platform, which would be two if you get the Vita or PS3 version.

Wow.. a Kickstarter for a Pinball Table? I guess they have Kickstarters for everything these days.. seems like overkill to me.

It's for the licenses to put the table into the game, not the table itself.

Yeah, I understand that. Still seems like overkill to me though. For $10,000 I'd expect them to deliver me a real-life physical pinball table lol.

It may seem like overkill to you, but that's what it costs to get the licenses since they've done the work to figure out the math to make it work.

I'm not saying the cost for the licenses is unrealistic or surprising or anything, I'm saying that it being a kickstarter is a bit weird. I didn't think there'd be much interest in people supporting/pledging that.

Get the Twilight Zone pinball table on a single platform of your choice (except for the Xbox 360- Microsoft won’t let us!)


Not surprising at all. MS being dicks as always haha.

I played it back on the ps1 and loved it. Sort of an atmospheric survival horror game with Lovecraftian overtones. Really good stuff.
