Watched the Sound Shapes review. Looks fantastic! Will probably pick it up once I get my PS+ 30-day trial setup for the discounted price.

Sound Shapes only looks meh to me. The review turned me off to it. If there's a demo though, I'll at least try it.

Thanks Frisky. Honestly, that doesn't look all that fun. I'll give it a shot though.

It's not necessarily about being fun, as it's a challenge mode built around being difficult and challenging.

The normal campaign is fun to play.

Breakfuss, you have to take an average of at most two seconds to grab each note within the time limit, so you have to rush to each note. They build the level to play off of that pace so that the obstacles Fuck around with the pace you want to have.

I wouldn't advise anybody using that video as a review or anything like that because it's not a representation of the normal game. It's a side thing that only masochists and trophy hunters will endure.

Well, I watched the Gamespot review, which was pretty positive on it, not sure on other reviews, but I can understand how it wouldn't appeal to many people.

bought MGS HD for the Vita at $17.14, hope there's no regrets!


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?

I played that game so long ago that it was before I found out about faqs on the internet. (they may not have even existed yet I don't know...) and that psycho mantis part freaked my shit out! But not nearly as bad as MGS2 did. You'll know what I mean when you get there.

I'm playing through MGS2 again right now on the MGS HD collection. It must be my 20th playthrough since the game first came out and I can still never bring myself to skip that sequence. :)

Man, I'm conflicted about Sound Shapes. It looks like LocoRoco or PixelJunk in that they are all solid titles, though not amazing ones, and they are more there to bolster Sony's indie cred than anything. I just picked up Retro/Grade and Journey and did not enjoy them as much as I thought I would, so that doesn't help either.

Haha I read that as Link to the Past, took me a minute to figure out what you meant by LTTP.

Anyways, I was actually pretty disappointed in MGS2. I really loved 1, 2 was a pretty big step down in my opinion. That's as far as I am in the series, I hear 3 is pretty good.

2 is at least twice as insane, story wise...whether that's a good thing or not is up to you.
I like the gameplay better too, but the environment is not nearly as good as Shadow Moses island.

3 is the calmest game in the series, story-wise. I mean, it has craziness, but it's more about a particular relationship and what the end of it meant for a particular figure in the series. The gameplay is probably the best in the series.

4 is....ugh. MGS4. The first two chapters are some of the best MGS gameplay ever, then the last 3 chapters have about an hour of gameplay total. it does wrap up everything, and I mean everything, in the series. The cutscenes are out of control though...there are way too many of them and they are not so great.

I'm visiting family so I don't have access to my ps3 or I would check the regular store to see if it is OK or not.

Something is seriously wrong because I can't find Final Fantasy V either. I know I got that for free on 2012/01/31: http://blog.us.plays....sy-v-and-more/




Final Fantasy V won't transfer at all, whether it's through the store or system. It's not Vita compatible at all, which sucks.

"so you like suikoden! haha so you save alot." that was so awesome when he read your memory card.

also spoilers ahead for mgs2 but crazy col campbell quotes -
http://www.gabe-e.co...azyquotes.shtml

"I hear it amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flapped jaw space with a tunning fork does a raw blink on hari-kari rock. I need scissors! 61!"

"Actually, I am in really bad shape financially. I pay money to my ex-wife as part of our divorce settlement, among other bills... I just had no choise but to make you pay for lunch the other day. I'm really sorry"

that said im gonna skip the vita bundle. great deal/price, but my backlog is too insane and i already own mgs trilogy on ps3 and id rather have the bigscreen/surroundsound/etc. but still wow great deal/price, but i need to try and control myself in 2013. im hoping just the bestbuy preorder games(which end up net positive for me always) and ps+. (and i guess Anarchy Reigns cuz thats a preorder already for a deal :) ) i doubt it will work tho... cag destroys my willpower to not buy more stuff...

Transfarring cloud saves between the two versions is pretty sweet. Play on my PS3 at home and now I'm working on 3 while on vacation.

i had a hard copy of the Vita version, but the trade-in value was about $16 after PUR and 50% boost, so I figured that's close enough and got the PSN version. I'll be playing those MGS2 VR missions + Snake Tales until I'm dead, so I may as well!

3 is fantastic. I'll admit that it doesn't feel like a MGS game. The gameplay is similar to 2 only they made melee combat much more fluid. And the story is easily the least convoluted and actually has emotional depth. 2 & 3 are so good that I'm considering purchasing them again (for the third time) just so I can have them on the vita too.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but MGS2 is my favorite in the series, with 3 being my least favorite. I loved the craziness of MGS2, and beating on extreme was one of my most satisfying gaming experiences ever. 3 just kind of felt boring to me.

You only notice it because you're not playing it, as it's not a distraction in the normal levels.

someone asked what i mean by "clean up" before

well some of the links in the OP link to october and november stuff, and lists them as new.

don't get why we don't just have one topic for new ps+ stuff (new deals, expiring deals), and one for new psn stuff (weekly deals). there's entirely too much material to sift through and it's all over the place

Yeah, I'm the exact opposite. The craziness of 2 was a total turn-off for me, and I'm super excited for 3 because it's been described (here and elsewhere) as the most down-to-earth game in the series.

I'd say it's almost for sure that it will be on sale tomorrow.

Twas not. I played the first waaaay back in PS days and hated it, so I never bothered with the others on release. Finally got around to playing them this year and love 2, tolerated 3, loved 4, replayed 1 and loved that too. But 2 ends up being my favorite, followed closely by 4.

Quick question. If I have less than what the game costs in my wallet, will it require me to add more money to my wallet, like how the 360 works, or can I just pay the difference with my credit card?
