It's a top-down vehicular combat game that was mainly given out for free as an incentive to subscribe to PS+ for some that got that offer in their email. Being free for me, it was an okay game at best. The only positive thing I can say is that it has an okay single-player challenge mode and the MP was completely dead at launch, so I'd suggest avoiding it unless you have money to burn for no reason.


meh, I think I'll skip then and get De Blob 2 or Stacking instead, thanks for the heads up

nosey little fucker arent ya?

Wasn't looking to buy anything else this month. But Im going to have to buy Costume Quest for that $3.75. Been wanting to give it a try since I got my PS3 last year.

How's Stacking? I believe it was on PS+ but I didn't have Internet at that time.

Does the Persona sale end this week? It didn't say it does on the blog but want to be sure. I've been thinking about grabbing P3P since I love RPGs but I'm only 2 hours into P4G and would like see more before I jump on P3P.

Definitely get either of those games before you get RF: Battlegrounds.

Stacking is OK. I really enjoyed the premise of the stacking dolls and how different dolls had different abilities. The only drawback for me is that, at it's core, it's still an adventure game. No matter if you think you have the perfect solution for a puzzle, if it's not the solution that the creators came up with, then you're S.O.L. But if you're an adventure game fan, it's a quality pickup.

Also, I've heard people report they get motion sickness from that game...

Also, kind of odd that PS+ is only getting an extra 5% off beyond the sale price on the SE games and EscapeVektor. Better than nothing, but that's the smallest "extra" discount I recall seeing.

Stacking's a cool little puzzle adventure game where you're a tiny Russian nesting doll that needs to stack into other dolls to gain abilities to solve puzzles in each level, which can be solved in a few different ways.

The Persona sale probably ends next week since P4G is supposed to end then. I doubt that Atlus would have one of the four games on sale for two weeks and the rest on sale for one week.

That's not true at all. I believe there are at least three solutions to every main puzzle in the game.

I'll pass on Stacking, have enough in my backlog thanks to PS+. Will get Persona while it is still on sale and Costume Quest. My vita will be full of RPG goodness with adding P3P and Disgea 3, love having all digital on my 32GB card. :)

Thanks guys!

I used to say that I would only buy the PS3 version if a game came out on both PS3 and Vita but now I'm leaning towards the Vita version. I don't have Limbo on PS3 yet so I might just have to get it on the Vita instead.

Excellent, I bought it at release on 360, it's a quality game that just got a bit too overhyped so people started hating on it.

Anyway, I'll gladly pick it up on sale and play through it again. Is the Vita really easy to port games to? Seems like every indie dev is giving the Vita a shot at this point.

From what's on sale, I can do videos of these for those that want to see what they are:

Costume Quest
Darksiders II, which will be the Xbox 360 version
de Blob 2
Just Cause 2
Kane & Lynch: Dead Men, which will be the Xbox 360 version
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which will also have to do two videos with the other being the awesome, free Kane & Lynch DLC
Red Faction: Battlegrounds
Red Faction: Guerrilla
Stacking

Despite what some folks have said, the sudden influx of Vita indie ports seems to suggest that it's maybe not as hard as it could be.

I'll definitely pick up Limbo again as long as the price isn't absurd.

Loved Limbo but until I become rich, I will not buy games multiple times. Maybe if it added new interesting features.

I want to start in this thread and ask everyone to stop buying Ass Creed games so they stop churning out these retreads announced almost right after the last is released. Seeing more info of the new pirate one on the blog got to me.

I like them all lol, keep um coming until I get bored.

I stand corrected. You're right, I believe they did add 3 different ways to solve each puzzle. That doesn't 100% solve the problem though.

You didn't use the hint system it has that can ultimately just tell you flat out what to do? It generally does a good job of helping you out even if you're terrible at figuring out puzzles.

I know the PS1 Persona 2 is not on sale, but the PSP Persona games are. Are the current sale prices the lowest they've ever been?

These are the typical sale prices that these games have been listed at for the past few Persona sales.

Probably stacking and maybe costume quest, though the combat on CQ was already getting repetitive by the time I beat the demo.

And it stays that way throughout the game. I found a team that I was happy with and pretty much used that setup for the entirety.

Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed the game from beginning to end. I loved the art style and the simplicity of the game was a nice change of pace that made for a relaxed playthrough.

I actually played it all the way to the end (including the DLC) this past Halloween so it was kind of nostalgic in terms of childhood "trick-or-treating" memories.

If you can get over the repetitiveness, I highly recommend it, especially for the price.

Hmm. Stacking + Costume Quest + De Blob 2 or P3P to make up the last $10 I need to spend?


Costume Quest is kind of short and easy but I had a lot of fum playing it.
Stacking is excellent and funny and just a whole lot of fun to me trying to find different ways to solve the various puzzles. (which is actually something that game keeps track of and encourages)
