So guys, I've never played any FF in my life. Nor know what it's about. All I know that it's turn based combat. Can anyone recommend one for a beginner in the series. Consensus seems to be FF7 from the sale would be the best. Anyone else back this? Thanks


I'm one of the many people that think VII isn't anywhere near the best in the series but it is a decent title. VI is usually the one I recommend to newcomers.

Bumping this as i'm still having trouble, downloaded the game for a third time now and still having the same problem.

This is the game I wanted to play most on PS Plus :cry:

Google it since there are a number of potential solutions on there.

Got a few questions regarding Dissidia 012 Duodecim FF DLC costumes...

I couldn't find them in my Vita's PS Store but do see them listed in the webstore. The listings do show "PSP|Vita" but can anyone here confirm the said costumes do get downloaded directly to his/her Vita and work fine?

According to this FF Wikia page, FFIV: The Complete Collection has Cecil's DLC costume but does the PSN version of that game actually have it? Can anyone confirm its appearance on his/her Vita?

Curious to know the above before purchasing Duodecim.

Yeah I forgot to mention I already had a few like Wipeout, some of the PixelJunk games,Dead Nation, Flower, and Back to the Future.

Already have the Pinball games for the 360, but will probably buy then on PSN so I can have them on my Vita. Have Stacking on the 360 as well.

Any Metroidvania type exclusives?


Outland reminded me a lot of Metriod, open map, platforming and combat mixed, linear in the sense that you have to get to a certain point on the map to get your next upgrade to continue on the story.

It's not an exclusive though.

I had the Tifa pre-order DLC costume from Amazon & while I couldn't redownload it on my Vita directly from the history, I was able to do so via PS3 & then transferring, & it works fine, along with the free Warrior of Light costume & Aerith from when I had Prologus back when it came out. I'm not too sure on PC-to-Vita transfer, but I think you can. I'd suggest trying the free WoL costume just to make sure.

As for Cecil's DLC costume with FF4 CC (along with the Aya costume for Lightning that you got from The 3rd Birthday), from my understanding, those were retail bonuses only. I also see no mention of them on the PSN store.

It's like Metroidvania meets a shooter. It's pretty intense at times but I really liked it. Plenty of back tracking for powerups and stuff. Plus the shifting mechanic is actually really fun.

I picked it up when it when free with PS+. I wish we could get more games like it. Metroidvania is my favorite style of game. The problem is so many games of that style end up really bad. Shadow Complex was an xbox only one right? Cause that's been my arcade game of this generation. There was talk of sequels and stuff when it came out but it doesn't look like that's ever going to happen. :(

EDIT: looked it up... it's published by Microsoft so of course it's 360 exclusive. AND they did promise a sequel but that was 2 years ago. So I imagine it will get a sequel when Last Guardian comes out.

perhaps you could let him play the game first and crisis core (if he wants) before mentioning Zack to him? lol

I have a question and I read the FAQ and couldn´t find an answer to this:
As a PS+ member, to avoid missing any free game of the IGC once it is replaced by another game; is it enough to keep the game in my download list (without even trying to install it) or should I install it and then delete it?

Just comfirm the free purchase and you are good to go, don't have to actually download it.

Haven't downloaded a single free game yet due to space but they are all in my download list.

You don't have to download it, as it'll stay in your purchase history for as long as you have PS+.

I love that genre as well. Shadow Complex is definitely Xbox only and definitely great. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a Xbox/PC exclusive in a similar vein, I found it fun but a little bit too easy. Dust: An Elysian Tail is another quality title with a slight Metroidvania (MV) feel.

Guacamelee looks promising, and like I mentioned before Knytt Underground looks pretty good as well. I'll probably be buying it tonight. Hell Yeah has a decent MV feel, but ended up being quite linear.

Others that have at least a tiny bit of MV vibe in my opinion would be Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Dishwasher Vampire Smile (Xbox only), and even Cave Story, which is an amazing game.

No, someone just mentioned it as a great downloadable title. It was actually just on sale a month or so ago.

It was already a PS+ sale item, but unfortunately I didn't have a PS3 or PS+ until after that. :( I'd love to see it go on sale again, since the game is in limbo on 360. Of course I'd rather they just got the publishing issue resolved on the 360, but it's taking forever.

I don't understand why there is a video for Urban Freestyle in the middle of the post. It doesn't seem to have anything written about it. I'm really looking forward to that one - especially for Vita.

Critter Crunch is a lot of fun especially for $1.40. Glad I held off on buying Closure during the previous sales.

Did I misread or was Critter Crunch labeled as being a $1 originally? Doesn't matter considering it's only 40 cents, but I'm curious.

Having played both, I'd say Critter Crunch is the much better game (although Closure is still good). Critter Crunch can be additively fun and there is a lot of content for the price. Closure has some fun puzzles, but I did end up getting frustrated trying to figure out the solution to some of em.

doubtful, it was on sale for $5 very recently if i remember correctly. and i just bought Medieval Madness DLC full price and didn't even blink -- I'd spend that in the arcade on a good table in a heartbeat, and to have that table at my fingertips on a plane trip is priceless. One of the tables you get for the main purchase of Pinball Arcade is Ripley's, which is also just a fantastic, fun high scoring style table.
