Frisky, make sure you note that Dokuro - $9.99 sale ends next week too. Don't need people complaining the sale ended (when they had 3 weeks) and it isn't on the store anymore.


Thanks for reminder, I really should buy it, but feels like this will be a PS+ freebie in the future...

To those confused, NBA Jam, the disc based version is having its online servers taken offline on Jan 11th.

NBA Jam on Fire edition is the SAME game, but more modes, which had a PSN only release (probably because NBA Jam shouldnt have been a full retail disc release)

So if anyone tells you PS+ gave you a game whose online mode is being taken aware are DEAD WRONG

I understand that you're saying it's the same basic game, but the removal of Remix Tour mode means that it's quite a different game as far as single-player is concerned.

However, it's a huge improvement over what NFL Blitz offered to solo players, which was just MK-style arcade mode and exhibition.

You read it. You can't unread it.

The same thing can be said for any other game in the store though. The thing you have to ask yourself is it worth playing now (also owning) and not waiting. You could end up waiting 3, 6, or even 12 months before it gets offered, or it never does. By then, if it isn't offered you might completely forget about it or lose interest because of other games. It just comes down to if you really have an interest in playing it sooner rather than later, or at all.

You also have to consider we have no idea really what Sony will be offering with the Vita IGC anyway. It could end up being more like Big Sky Infinity and Chronovolt which are new games as they roll out, or even let them put more PSP games on it.

You still have a week to think about it anyway. It really comes down to the developer and if they want to put there game up on IGC, which we will never know until it actually happens.

Anyone know if Skullgirls is best played on PS3 or Steam?


As of right now, PS3 is better, because the PC version hasn't even been released yet!

The way I see it, they already gave out the best retail games..figures well get a bunch of psn only titles for a while that few want/know about...

I have yet to see anything of (post patch) Amy that depicts a genuinely good reason for all the over-the-top hate. For anyone that's really played both, how does Amy honestly hold up against RE:ORC?

p.s. I picked RE:ORC because that's the other game people seem to just hate with a bizarre amount of ferocity. I don't have anything specific against RE:ORC.

If I were to only get one of the two, would you recommend Dokuro or Sound Shapes? Disregard the fact that one is cross-buy while the other is not and pretend they're the same price.

I felt sound shapes was a little overrated- that said I never played Dokuro

Sound Shapes has like 15 stages and just as many "death stages". This game can be platinumed in 4 hours, which is mostly due to how long the death stages take you. Also there are community stages I believe, but I can only talk about things you'll 100% experience.

Dokuto has 147 puzzles (I believe) and will most likely take you a lot longer to figure everything out. There are also a few bosses and some challenging trophies to test your skills.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Amy was pretty awful from what I played, I actually managed to beat RE:ORC because I like RE and sadly, in retrospect, it was better than 6. I don't think I could have played through all of Amy if I tried.

They dropped the ball so hard by removing the Lumines PS+ sale.

Yeah I had it on my buy list for $17 but $21 is enough for me to wait for it to drop.

Just getting the free stuff and Tokyo jungle and sound shapes. Could of had more of my money Sony...

Renewing my PS+ today and probably buying Bulletstorm, Arkham City, and Assassin's Creed 2.

Having not finished the first Assassin's Creed, will I miss anything going into the second? I own the first still, I've just never finished it.

Any opinions on Touch my Katamari? I love the series, but I heard this one was a cheap cash-in. And it only has 12 trophies.....

Bad decision.

Both Arkham City & Bulletstorm are free on EU PS+. They get way better games and way better discounts than the crap they serve us for North American PS+

I've tried on three separate occasions to finish the first AC and it just gets too repetitive. The second one is great though.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Personally, I liked ORC too, but I could see how some wouldn't. It's like Left 4 Dead in the RE universe.

Picked up NBA Jam though!

Silly question here, but is there any place(sony.com or playstation.com) to get the sale prices on games from the past week's sales(12/24-12/30 week) after the week's sale is expired? I really wanted MG collection HD and Unit 13 for the Vita but missed it since the store updated at some point in the last few hours. I didn't know if anyone here from CAG ever tried before to contact Sony and have them honor a sale price if someone just missed the store updating to the new week's sales.

Thanks in advance for any help!
