Lumines + price hasn't gone down to $17 yet. It's still showing up as $20+. They need to get the price fixed for Plus users! It was on their blog. (X_X)


It's not going to go down. It was a mistake.

Man, I really suck at Jetpack Joyride. At about 1600 it gets too fast for me to reliably dodge, so anything past that is luck and vehicle based. My record is 4330 though, so I will probably need to grind coins for items to get me to 5000.


You may already know this, but you can only use one second chance per run. Just FYI, I didn't know it until I used one and then wasn't able to use another. But luckily I had a very good run to make it past 5000.

when you get rides on vehicles the velocity decreases you could start with the item equipped free ride, and each time you see a new vehicle just jump on that you can get a good 800m easily with each one of them.

Also you can do an alternative and buy an super head start with 10k coins it's not better to buy individually alternatively you can also get a super blast so that when you are doing you go further.

Good luck

I was really hesitant about picking it up, but I finally did yesterday morning... and then spent almost the entire day playing it. Definitely worth it, if you ask me, esp. for the PS+ price.


there's a small thread in the ps3 forums. i played the heck out of it for about a week and a half then got bored

I just wish the pacing of Tokyo Jungle was slowed down a little bit. Even real animals have time to explore/sleep/play/etc. In this game, if you're not constantly planning out your next meal at all times, you're dead.

Other than that, it's a really cool and original game.

I'm thinking 5 pack of the 1500 headstart, 5 pack of final blast, 1 second chance (if I think I can do it). I should be able to bomb repeatedly after death, I think. I assume Final Blast is the same as Big Blast for ~250 per bomb.

Currently saving up the 30k to try that, but even if I get it, the rest of the grind is such a turn off... :(

That's the only thing that worries me a little. I wonder if it's possible to over-hunt and wind up with no food and just die out. Thinking I'll use my PS+ trail and get it for $7.

Watch out for the bomb you can only use it once also I would recommend the gravity belt since it helps out, regarding the grind if you wish to do it like me without buying any sort of DLC I had to level up till level 190.

Mostly because like I said before in my country the dlc are not there and never will be so I got the UK version so I can't buy any coins.

Sometimes when the bonuses would change for double coins I would change the coins to gems and the coin collector.

You must adapt the upgrades to the missions all the time.

Also try to get the most of tokens you can get an atomic bomb which helps a revive.

You can also buy revive a pack of 3 costs 25k

Areas repopulate over time, but they repopulate with larger and tougher animals.

'Exploration' is important, only in that it's important you understand each area. It will take many, many generations and games to 'explore' the maps. You're meant to play the game over and over, and die in between (with your mating causing stat increases). If you could slowly explore the world during one game, it would defeat the multi-generational purpose of the game.

I've 100%'d the game and have played the living daylights out of it.

You can't really overhunt; I mean, if you clear an area out and just stay there, yes, you'll die. But the challenges and such are meant to keep you on the move. generally speaking, there's no need to stay in one place -- you want to keep moving, completing challenges (for stats), and finding a prime mate to keep some of those stat increases forever...

Changing radiation patterns can wipe an area clean, but mating will cause all areas to start fresh (though possibly quite different in animal composition). like food at first, radiation is daunting to the new player -- it feels brutal and endless. but there are plenty of tricks to surviving radiation, such as hidden areas that are radiation proof to survive the worst storms.

what you really want to concentrate on is completing multiple challenges during one generation and then getting that prime mate, so that your starting stats will be forever better. sometimes this requires timing your mating with the passage of years.

number one tip - you can evade out of clean kill animations. this is useful and vital.

never use food/water items until the very last second you need to. there are plenty of ways to keep living.

I would say the opposite is true for Tokyo Jungle, since plus members got the first 5 (?) animal DLC characters for free and all the cross over DLC (or at least most) was free.

I got this one

http://www.amazon.co...ils_o01_s00_i00

When I got it, it was $7.xx, now it's up to $13, still probably worth it. It's a pretty slim, solid case. It has a flap that presses flush against the screen, so I definitely feel like my system won't get scratched up when it's in my bag. The only issue I have with it is the game slots--they're nigh impossible to cram games into, it took me several minutes of struggle to mash it in. Luckily I'm mainly playing downloaded games on it
I enjoy stuff a great deal.

The remaining mention of the Journey discount price on the main page is so cruel. Here's hoping for another chance for the formally out of town

Just spend the $20 and get the Pull 'n Go Folio from either Amazon or Gamestop.

Even if you never want to carry the big case itself, it's a good place to store extra games and the cables. And the removable case is about as slim as you'll manage while offering protection (plus some extra game storage).

It's not like it's a small system, so any case will seem bulky.
