I just got done with the Journey Demo. So glad I waited for it to have a demo/go on sale. It's neat with a very serene atmosphere, but not worth $15 in my opinion.

The demo was extremely linear where if I veered off the correct path, hurricane force winds would blow me back to where I was supposed to go. I don't know how the rest of the game is, but without any kind of incentive to replay it the price needs to drop first for me to consider purchasing it.

I read in one of the reviews that unless you're matched with a random players for cooperative play, the gameplay suffers. I'm not going to hate on this game since I could see what they were going for, it's just not for me at this time.

Young Thor is basically side-scrolling God of War for kids. It's good, but only having four levels with varying versions of each with different difficulty levels isn't as good as having a linear set of unique levels. The main strategy it requires is playing the levels with the lowest difficulty until you run into a roadblock and then go back to an easy level to grind a bit more, which makes it repetitive.

Anybody that wants a good Mini on the cheap should check out One Epic Game, which is a sidescrolling shooter/platformer where you're constantly running at full speed and need to complete the different goals you're given for each level. It's kind of a Monster Dash meets Canabalt.

For recommendable Minis for Vita, check out Alien Zombie Death, Doodle Fit, Mecho Wars, OMG-Z, and One Epic Game.

That's only the additions this week. The complete list is quite a bit longer.


Oh the list is the list. But I looking for games like Birth by Sleep and Crisis Core to make the jump. Never happen, maybe? Still got hope.

Seems like other stores have games we missing. Which is odd. Although it goes both ways.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Might be a stupid question, but is the PS3 version of flOw the same one that was available for free a couple of years ago? I remember getting it for free and it is installed on my HDD, but it's not listed as previously purchased for me nor is it listed in my previously downloaded list


During that giveaway part of the terms were that you couldn't re-download the game. I haven't seen this on any other PSN promotion but that's why it doesn't show as previously purchased or on your download list.

I'm in the same boat as you and briefly considered purchasing it to lock it in for that price, but I am too cheap-ass to do that I guess.

My case was actually about if I should buy the DLC or not, but as someone pointed out, there's some kind of bug with it. Guess I'll hold out for now.

What's up with these developer sales skimping the past few weeks? Hey, I'm all for any kind of sale, but if you're going to advertise a developer sale why is some content suspiciously missing? Where was the AC: Revelations DLC? This week, we have thatgamecompany content on sale, yet Journey is conspiculously missing. Not even $5 off?

I'm also kicking myself for not getting Outland. I have it for 360 already but was going back and forth on whether to get it for PS3 as well. I finally decided to pull the trigger at around 4pm EST and the store had already been updated. WTF? Any other time the damn thing doesn't update until after 6pm. Just my luck. :(


a developer sale doesn't mean EVERYTHING, but select things. accusing them of being suspicious and conspiculous (wtf does that even mean) is pretty asinine. the game came out only a couple weeks ago.

This is the developer saying: hey thanks for buying journey, if you liked our most recent game, try some of our older games at a reduced price!

the amount of entitlement you portray is pretty gross man. if you don't like whats on sale, move along.

Finally a thatgamecompany sale! I'll be grabbing Flower, Flow, and all the related themes, soundtracks, and avatars. :)

Question about the Modnation Racers DLC: I'm not really interested in level creation, but I'm all for new levels. I assume that the career extensions are what I'm looking for? And how are they? $5 a piece is still kinda expensive.

The Ubisoft sale was for full games and their DLC. Assassin's Creed Revelations isn't on PSN yet, so the DLC wasn't going to be on sale.

Journey's doing too well for them to have a discount this quickly, which is the standard for that situation. You're not going to get a sale on games like Trials Evolution on XBLA for a while either.

You're just gambling with the devil when you wait that long to make up your mind.

Getting Birth by Sleep on PSN is a tremendous trial due to Disney having a stick up their ass about digital distribution.

So what's the bug that you guys are talking about with flOw? I can't find much about it besides it possibly having to do with installing the DLC after the latest update? Couldn't you just delete the game and game data and do a fresh download/install of the game and DLC before starting it up again to get the update? That's what this suggests.

Yeah, unless you got the free version, in which case redownloading is not an option.

99.9% sure it's not gonna happen. There was article about the game today on the PS Blog, and the developer still doesn't have a firm date for release.

So glad both Flow (especially the bundle) & Flower are on sale. & thanks for the info about a glitch. So pretty much install the game THEN the expansion to avoid it.

I have replayed Journey 5 or 6 times, and I don't typically do online co-op or multi-player in games either. To each their own I suppose, but I had all of those same concerns and have absolutely adored it.

Quick question - how is the PS Mini game, The Impossible Game, for $0.99 a "sale" or "deal price"? I bought it quite awhile back for that price, then was telling my friend about it quite awhile later, looked it up to make sure and it was still $0.99. Unless I just randomly happened to look at it while it was on sale at 2 completely different and random time frames, that just seems kinda odd. :-s

I think it's free on android. Try it. It's pretty lame. You've got your jump button and that's it, your 'character' (a block), moves forward on its own.

This sux. They hate money or something? :p

I still don't get the hold out of Square Enix. I was wondering if maybe they'd planned to up res and Vita sell it. They do love to double dip. Although they had no issues putting 3rd Birthday and Dissidia 012 up. Who knows. <shrug>

It's some other notable mentions. I imagine some are like MUA, where the license is up.

Young Thor was a great game and one of the best minis I've played. You have different attacks like the hammer and a lightning attack and can get stronger type attacks and extra gear by completing the levels. There's four worlds but like 8 stages in each world which may be slightly altered. A few boss battles and you gain extra power and HP and magic with leveling up. And you'll have to replay some levels to improve your stats, can replay any level. No trophies but trophy like awards description in game.

Thanks! Downloaded it!
