Man, it's astounding that Pure Chess Holiday bundle isn't a Cross-Buy. I had just assumed it was. Do they really think anyone is going to buy that game twice?

Why would they think that? That's like asking if Ubisoft thinks I'm going to buy Assassin's Creed III for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Anyone know if the 2nd episode of Walking Dead (game) has been free or at least free for ps+ members? I downloaded the 1st episode fine but I could have sworn the 2nd episode was free as well.

Agreed, there is no reason for any of these PSN titles not to be. I bought Pure Chess for Vita because I had a friend who did and wanted to play. Typically though, I will buy games I am questionable on that support cross buy and pass on those that don't.

Episodes 1 and 2 were available for free with PS+ a few months ago. Some items that are registered to your account don't show up in the store as having been purchased, so check your download history to see if it's there.

Just spent about an hour with Tokyo Jungle, it's unexpectedly awesome. And it seems to have a ton of content, a steal at $7.34.

OK thanks. One thing I noticed is that Episode 1 from the store is only a 420-ish mb dl while the Episode 2 from my download list is over 800 mb. Also, Episode 1 has an unlock code but there isn't an unlock code for Episode 2 in "Download Management" after clicking download in background. I hope that ep 2 unlocks OK.

It should work fine. Unlike Telltale's previous PSN releases (Sam & Max, BttF, etc...) where every episode was released as a separate game/executable, the subsequent episodes of The Walking Dead were released as DLC addons for the first episode, so they don't need unlock files.

Hee, you're not kidding. I've got silky terriers that can kill crocodiles with a good sneak attack now. Unfortunately there's a cap to all the permanent stat boosts (Defense and Hunger in particular top out at +20), so they'll always be a little fragile.

I do love this game =]

Got Tokyo Jungle...even though I know I'll probably hate it, but wanted to see what the hype is about.

It really pains me to pass on Bulletstorm, but I know I wouldn't play it for a long long time, and the physical copies are typical sub $10 anyways.

If you already grabbed the PS3 version, then you already have the Vita version. Check your download list to download it.

Just downloaded Tokyo Jungle, ran it once just to see if any updates and to make a save an it gave me remote play for the Vita which made me realize...

Now that I have a PS3.... is a Vita not a bad investment as long as I can get it on the cheap? (By cheap I mean $150)

Well do you have PS+ and are you in the market for a handheld? If you're answer to both questions is yes, then I'd go for it. The Vita is the ultimate handheld IMO. There are plenty of quality games out and the only thing that you really need to worry about after purchasing the system is how much money you're willing to dedicate to a memory card.

You won't regret it. I just finished MGS1, and MAN is that game cahRAYzee! If 2+3 are even half as insane as the first one, I'm all in. I'm VERY LTTP on this one, I know, but in the time that MGS came out, I was into other things. Such an amazing game, loved every minute of it.

One thing though: How in the hell did people play this originally? I was finding myself using a FAQ, because there were moments where I'd be puzzled(Psycho Mantis). Should I have called Campbell more often for tips?


hmm is there a MGS1 HD version?

Nope. The closest thing to it is the MGS1: Twin Snakes remake on Gamecube. There was also a PC port in 2000. I believe that it runs in a higher resolution than the PS1 version, but the art assets probably look very similar.

Not really, but it adds to the story and it's still a good game.

Wow I didn't about that. Do you prefer the original MGS1 on the PSX or MGS1: Twin Snakes. I've been reading a lot of mixed reviews on the gamecube version.

I've heard on MGS1 it's pretty hard to play without a guide because there is simply things the average person cannot figure out (like putting the controller in the 2nd port). Is that kind of stuff common in MGS1? I'd like to play it but not be confused as to what I should be doing all the time.

I too am interested between which version people prefer PS1 or GC.

EDIT: Nevermind. Just looked at the price for a used copy of Twin Snakes, lol.

I got lucky a few years ago and snagged a copy for about $20 and then found the guide at a local store for ~$5. Still haven't played it.

If at all possible, yes. If you want to jump straight into MGS2, then you can read through the events of MGS1, which is included as a digital novel on the MGS2 disc. Needless to say it's much more exciting to experience the events of MGS1 yourself. MGS2 makes a lot of visual references to MGS1, so it will have helped to have actually seen the events of MGS1.

Wow I didn't about that. Do you prefer the original MGS1 on the PSX or MGS1: Twin Snakes. I've been reading a lot of mixed reviews on the gamecube version.

The primary problem with the remake is that it introduces mechanics from MGS2. When they originally designed MGS1 the developers never intended the player to be able to use the first-person perspective or jump over rails. It removes a good deal of difficulty from the game. Twin Snakes came out right around when the Matrix was popular so you'll see that they Matrix-ified a lot of the cutscenes to be much more over the top than they were in the original MGS1.

On the other hand Twin Snakes also adds collectibles to the game which gives you some motivation to play through the game more than once. Unlike most games the collectibles are fairly easy to find. Normally I'm not a fan of collectibles but I rather like MGS's approach towards them.

Last I had looked Twin Snakes was a bit more expensive than MGS1. The original is much easier to find. I'd say go with the original version.

If you want to get started in the MGS series, I'd definitely recommend starting with 1. Just download the PSOne Classic on PSN, I wouldn't bother with Twin Snakes just because of the price.

I think I had to use a guide a couple times for MGS1 (mostly for bosses if I remember correctly) but the majority of it is easily beatable without using a guide.
