I would love the the HD Chronicles to be on sale, but I just can't see it happening due to it's recent release.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Sorry to divert anymore attention to this, but I just want to mention that I did retry Malicious with staggeringly different results this time. I spent 20 minutes last night on one boss, and got no where. I played the same stage today and beat it in four minutes. Then, the following stage in 8. So, yeah, I was playing it wrongly. Thanks for the video, @frisky.

It's worth a play through or two (probably all you need to beat it), but still grateful I didn't buy it. Shame, lots of potential.

I think the Chronicles are the only PSN RE games I don't have so that'd be a buy. I'd have to debate RE6.

Is Dragon Fantasy Book I any good? I'm having a hard time finding any reviews.


I, too, am wondering about this. Any recommendations?

If you like NES-era RPGs, it's a solid homage to that style of old school RPG. I'd have preferred to see them adjust the rate of random battles and misses since they both happen a bit too often for my tastes.

I'm a level grinder, so I like the rate of battles, but the rate of misses seems off the charts to me. It's like every third attack fails to connect.

They could get the same effect with the rate of battles by lowering it by about 25% and increase the rewards accordingly. Going through the last part of the fetch quest in the first chapter with no new armor/weapons to buy is killing my buzz to marathon through the game.

Recent? I remember reading about it way back and thinking to myself "Great! Waiting for a sale on this one". Then I forgot about it after I got HoTD...

EDIT: I will probably buy it either way, but how is the calibration with this game? After playing so many rail shooters, I find that different games have different calibration quality, and this is the most influential factor in how much I enjoyed the game. Sadly not too many reviews on these games.

To the point that @jack frost is antagonistic, I don't know that there's ever a reason to tell others to dismiss someone's opinion. Completely unnecessary and silly.




There was a reason because you werent playing the game right

No official prices have been announced yet, Frisky's list is just speculation.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I'd pick up Chronicles HD collection at that price and maybe Code Veronica X as well.

Hopefully we'll see though prices or lower.

Does anybody know if the RE: Chronicles games are still fun without the move controller? I've always wanted to pick them up ever since they came out on the Wii, but never got around it.

i would've recommended the original until i saw the psn version changed the original music which imo ruined the game

the music in the first resident evil completely set the tone and made it scary, the music in the psn version is corny

i would say get 4 because it's a timeless classic

Resident Evil 3 is the only RE game I haven't finished, aside from 6, so I'll definitely pick that one up. Is it playable on Vita?

RE 2 is my personal favorite of the PS1 era RE games - it has both a Claire and separate Leon campaign and really improved upon the 1st one.

I would say get all 3 if you have the means, since they are all worth playing, but remember they are PS1 games, so both graphics and controls leave a lot to be desired. IIRC all 3 at least have dual analog support (playing through Dino Crisis, which doesn't have dual analog functionality was rough).

I bought Code Veronica X already and still need to get around to playing it. I had it on Dreamcast and loved it, but for some reason I couldn't get into on the 2 times I tried to on PS3.

If you still have the Wii and it's a backwards compatible one, you should try finding the Gamecube version of Residen Evil 1 and playing that, it's very good. Then get 2, 3 and Code Veronica from PSN.

The gamecube remake of RE 1 is probably the scariest RE game in the series. I wasn't a big fan of Zero, however.

i already have the three PS1 REs on my vita (from ps+ ages ago, i think), but my attempt to try the first was got thwarted by old school ps1 'tank' controls. is it worth getting over that, adjusting to the controls, and playing through them all?

Probably not. The series is about as iconic as Tomb Raider and holds up just as well as those games do. That's to say not very much. If you're curious about the storylines, you might be better off playing the light gun games, which are actually pretty good.

Finished up the first two chapters. The first was much longer at maybe around six hours or six with the second being maybe two hours long at best. The second chapter takes place during the first as you control the remaining brother/prince and it ends about halfway through the campaign in the first chapter, though I was hoping it kept going to show what he does later on after that. The biggest difference in gameplay is that you get a party of people to work with to make it easier than Ogden's solo adventure.

Frisky, message me if you can. Tried messaging you but cant.

For everyone asking about PS1 RE games... it takes some adjustment but they're still highly playable. I'm actually quite fond of the RE1 port on the DS, which has two different modes (one is the standard game, one has DS-specific additions on the touch screen which I don't care for). I always wished Capcom would have done the same with RE2. I have all of them on Gamecube, but if they're as low as $3 each I might double-dip on 2-3 just to have them on the Vita... as if I'll ever have time to play them!

Fun fact regarding the PS1 Resident Evil games... RE3 introduced a quick 180 turn that really makes the controls less cumbersome, especially when you're in a narrow hallway with something trying to kill you. Subsequent ports of RE2 (Dreamcast, Gamecube, etc.) as well as the RE1 remake on Gamecube, DS port, etc. ALL integrate the quick-turn.

Going back to the vanilla PS1 RE1 and RE2 games after playing RE3 or any subsequent ports/releases without the quick-turn can be grounds for controller smashing.

The RE games that are PS Classics were free with Playstation Plus, what, a year ago?

I have them on my PSP Go. Haven't played em.

If those prices do hold as Frisky has put, is RE5 and RE4 both worth getting? Or would it be better to just get one of the two, as I would still want to pick up something in the following week's sale regarding PSASBR. RE5 would be mainly for the coop with my brother, and RE4 would just be to pick up and play.

Odgen is solo the whole chapter? That's a little annoying. I was hoping to get a slew of crazy party members, but I guess I'll have to wait it out on that. Reminds me a little of how Earthbound kept you with one main character for the longest time. At least they had some supporting characters to fight with you though.
