PSN Weekly Deals - 9/1: Atlus Sale, PS+ Specials, & 6 New PS+ Games! PWYW Foul Play on PS4!

When you have games that you don't remember buying, you need to join the CAG support group.

I have Guacamelee on PSN and Steam ... and I was really, really excited about the updated version being free with GWG on the One. Which is a console I do not yet own.

 

Oh, and I haven't played Guacamelee on any system yet, and had forgotten I'd previously bought it (on either PSN or Steam) until just recently hooking up my PS3.

 

On topic: I'm thinking I want to spend $20 on this sale. Should I get Demon's Souls, Suikoden II, and Time and Eternity, or redeem the year of PS+ I have somewhere and get the above three games and Pier Solar?

Yeah, I've had Demon's Souls in my cart since Saturday. Do I really want to pay $5 for a game where I die over and over? Of course I love Spelunky for the very same reason...

I owned a physical copy of Demon's Souls once (I've also been very slowly playing through Dark Souls on my 360 in fits and starts, and have DS2, too), and I enjoyed it, but I never beat it. The point of all the Souls games isn't dying over and over, though you will: It's forcing you to learn a world that is unforgiving, and rewards patience.

The Vita is the system where digital benefits the most, in my opinion, so I'd recommend that myself.

That unforgiving world part sounds a lot like my life. LOL!

Managed to beat Force Unleashed on May the Fourth.  Unfortunately it's now 11:40 PM and I probably need another 3-5 hours for the plat.  Guess I'll have to wait until next year.

 

I'm not that bad, but pretty much every time I go through the games on my PS3 I find something I had forgotten that I owned.

 

Happens every single PSN sale.

It's also the system where big files hurt the most too. Unless you have a 64gb card or don't mind doing the transfer every time you wanna switch games. I could go either way really. It's almost a 50% difference in price. And depends on scarcity of the vita games around you. Maybe you could get it even cheaper if it's in the target clearances.

A Vita without a 64gb card is like a.. erm.. (clever analogy goes here)

 

But you're right, moving around files on small memory cards is a pain.  I went through that for close to a year with my 8gb card before upgrading.   Once you have a 64gb card, you barely have to worry about that ever again.  $70 or $80 is a small price to pay for that level of convenience, so I've come to assume, very possibly incorrectly, that every active Vita user either owns or is planning to eventually buy a 64gb card themselves. ;)

Can anyone recommend some Action RPG's for the PSP/Vita on that list?  Turn based, non-strat as well?

It isn't really like that though.   Well, maybe for the first hour or so while you learn the combat system, but really once you get going in the game you shouldn't be dying all that much.   And even if you do, it's not a big deal.   There are short cuts all over those games -- you don't need to make it all that far till you're opening a gate or whatever that lets you 'skip' the section you just did (and eventually skip right to bosses once you clear the area).  

 

The games get their reputation because people just learning to play die alot because they aren't prepared for the style of game it is.   For example, you can't spam attacks because you'll run out of stamina, then fall to a counter attack.  As soon as you learn how to play, your death count should plummet drastically.

anyone played Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy? Im not realy sure what kind of game it is. I thought it was a dungeon crawler rpg or something but the videos ive seen make it kinda look like a dynasty warriors type game. What type of game is it? Is it worth the sale price?

Can anyone tell me if TLoU and The Show can be played remotely from a PS4 using Playstation TV?  I do not have a Vita but if I can get PS4 games in other rooms of the house I will pick up a PSTV.  Is there any way to tell which games will or will not play remotely?  Any help is appreciated.

I was looking into Fantasy Hero but decided against it. It appears that there are four playable characters with possibly four different stories, but only one save slot, in order to play the other characters simultaneously you have to buy the DLC that unlocks more save slots....and that just seemed a tad bit shady to me. Especially since the DLC is almost the same price as the game on sale. Didn't look worth it for nearly 15 bucks.

Still trying to decide on:

 

Pier Solar

htoLNiQ

Atelier Escha & Logy

Dead Rising 2 Off the Record

Mugen Souls Z

Crimson Gem Saga

Hexyz Force

 

I'll add my 2 cents on a couple of those.

 

Did you play the first Mugen Souls and enjoy it?  I did, but I thought Z was kind of a letdown.  Maybe I just spend too much time with the first one and wasn't ready to dive in again.  Z felt like a chore, even though I recognized they improved a few things.  I guess for that price it isn't too big a risk. 

 

I LOVED Atelier Escha & Logy.  I hadn't made it all the way through the last couple of Atelier games, but that one hooked me.  The characters were fairly interesting and the game design was improved.  My only hesitation there would be that you can probably plan on it coming to VITA, right?  If that's your preferred platform for those games, I'd wait.  

 

I've been close to pulling the trigger on Dead Rising 2 Off the Record a bunch of times, but I've just never done it.  I'd like to have it in the collection, but I doubt I'd ever play it after going all the way through Dead Rising 2 and 3 multiple times.

I'm sure those can be played remotely although I haven't tried.  I believe every PS4 game must be remote play compatible except games that use the camera.

Oh so firefly diaries wasn't good? I was holding off on it because I figured it could go lower in the future. Maybe I'll pick it up when it's <$5.

They don't have to support RP, but they do by default and have to opt out like Frozenbyte did with Trine.
