wtf! why is Ico/SotC showing up as 35.99 buy price :(

Edit: Nevermind. I'm an idiot. That's the "new" price. I must have missed it. Would have got this and PoP Trilogy, but the first post didn't update so I thought they didn't update their sales for the night. Ah well, hopefully they'll repeat eventually.


Both are still showing up on sale for me... Ico/SotC is still $17 and PoP is $13...

You still have a chance!

LOL Nice
I mentioned that to a friend recently when he told me games like halo/gears/COD when he beat those cuz of his "uber" skills. I told him to beat the first two contras then he could brag and take the title of gaming master.


Lol I see your point but really bad example. Contras are very easy to beat compared to some NES games, I used to do it as a small child.

For whatever reason, in Shadow, they decided to adjust general grip effectiveness and other slight mechanics so it technically is more difficult than it used to be. This is only an issue if you're going to go for the hard time trials, really, but it makes it one of the tougher platinums out there.


This is exactly what I was referring to. I beat the original PS2 version at least twice and had a pretty good feel for the game, so when I got to the third Colossus in HD Collection I had to ask myself what the hell was going on. I checked a few boards and a lot of people were saying the same thing. Some have said that SotC is based on the Euro version that has the same grip effectiveness, I have no idea if this is true or not.

Not that I'm saying ICO/SotC isn't worth this price, because it absolutely is and then some. SotC feels slightly less satisying with the looser/shorter grip mechanics, but on the other hand you do get a vastly improved framerate.

Anyone know if the Capcom Digital Collection makes you download the games off the disc or anything weird like that? Or do the games play straight off the disc?

I Really doubt that's the reason honestly. It's not that hard to go to the Gamefly website at 8ET and click under free shipping to see what's on the cheap. Or even easier, just check Gamefly's Twitter at that time. I Really just want Cheapy to update just so I know if any deals tomorrow or not.



It's not Cheapy's responsibility to ensure that you know about every single deal that is available. If he misses one so what, it's not the end of the world. If it's so easy for him to check the deals why can't you just do the same? The trend for Gamefly is they will have deals Monday-Thursday with the last deals of the week going through the weekend.

The disc would be abused if you could download them off of the disc

True, I guess I am asking because I recently got High Velocity Bowling for PS3 (disc version) and it requires you to download it to the system but has to be played with the disc in the drive.

Got Rayman and HP 5-7, both ps3, today. Chipped as usual. I always get my games from the PA distribution center, im wonder if maybe its only this distribution center with the chipping problem?

games today arent hard. they have checkpoints and all that.

beat a game like battletoads then we'll talk.


Games today can still be hard. They are just nicer.

Going back and playing games from when I was growing up showed me just how unbalanced and mean they were. I almost feel like the creators where intentionally being asshats ;).

^ I'm in LA, too. Usually get games super-fast. However, I ordered Dark Souls last Saturday and it still hasn't arrived.
Not that I was going to play it until I finish Mass Effect 3, but still...

Better yet, beat Contra without losing a life. Good lord, I played the hell outta that game.
