Man, i've been waiting for a couple of weeks for Shovel Knight to get a small Discount, seems like it's not gonna happen anytime soon, missed out when it did go on sale.

I'll just buy it, been itching to play it for some time already.

I've been waiting for it to go on sale as well but only because I've already paid full price for it on Wii U. Game is fantastic though and easily worth the price of admission.

Re: PS+ auto-renewal.
 
Maybe I'm just unlucky, but...
 
I had it turned off like 2 years ago. When it expired, it used my wallet funds to renew. I bitched about it here, followed guides on how to turn off auto-renewal, triple checked everything. Everything said disabled.
 
Fast forward eleven months, to around June. I let it expire, since it was like a day after PS+ games were put up. It again tried to auto-renew. Failed, cause I didn't have enough wallet funds this time.
 
So Sony does something that automatically turns it back on. I don't know if it's during the new TOS crap, or adding devices, but they've done it twice to me now.

I'm gonna say it's you since few people seem to have that problem. Did you turn off automatic renewal and automatic funding from wallet?

I've haven't even played it, and good to know the game is amazing as it looks.

Might pick it up during this week.

Been awhile since i picked up a full price retail game, so i guess this'll do!

Can someone cut through the bullshit of PS4 AC releases and let me know if any of them are good like AC2 was?  I disliked the first, loved the second, and the other one or two I've tried burnt me out on collect-a-thon.   Have they improved? Gotten worse?

 

Also -- source on PSN getting hacked more than once?  Pretty sure it's just that one time, the baddies didn't get anything and Sony invested a hell of a lot of money into securing everything.    Hijacked accounts due to lack of customer security aren't 'hacks'.

Isn't AC2 the consensus best AC game of them all?  Never played it.

I very nearly shat my pants.

 

 

Heroes of Loot looks very interesting and sounds relevant to my interests. For $3 I think I'll roll the dice.

But I want to know if it's any good. I like the China setting and 2D gameplay style but, aside from AC2--which was fun, hated the rest of the franchise. Freaking tedious, monotonous gameplay.

Sure came as a surprise to me! (Is this one of those deals where you have to tell Sony not to auto-charge every time you buy a subscription? Because that bugged the piss outta me with Microsoft.)

They've never charged me out of nowhere, but then again I just stick to prepaid subscription cards.   It's just good practice in all facets in life to not use your credit card when you don't have to.  Double charges, skimmers, shady subscription models (like Xbox Live and how hard it used to be to unsubscribe), and overcharges are a bitch to deal with.

 

Also, there's a banner on PS3 for The Last of Us being free for Plus users, but when I click it, it's $20.  Wut.

For the most part, they haven't strayed far from what 2 did. Personally, I'd say the ones worth playing through at this point are 2, Brotherhood (though that depends on how well these two hold up) and Black Flag. And if you like Black Flag, Rogue is a direct follow-up to that, though I haven't played it yet.

What's the lowest the Arkham Origins Season Pass been? I think I paid like $4 for it on PSN last year.

And so it is my privilege to confirm that next Tuesday, September 29th, you will be able to purchase the precocious PS1 classic, Mega Man Legends, on the North American PlayStation Store. The game will be $9.99, which is considerably lower than the game's going rate on the likes of eBay. I hope you'll agree with me that it is well worth it to finally see this game available again.

The title will be playable on your PlayStation 3 and Vita, but due to a variety of constraints, it will not play on the PSP. Please be aware.

 

Is this the first time a PS1 game has been compatible with the Vita and NOT the PSP? Odd.

Suikoden II started out that way, but they cobbled in PSP support later.

Looks like TLOU isn't the only game showing some weirdness after the store update. When viewing the deals on a PS4, Black Flag shows up as free on one of the banner images (both for PS+ and non PS+ prices).

 

It will be the correct $15 price on the store page so no need to rush to your PS4s right now, but I just found it interesting that there's multiple instances of incorrect banners at the moment. I won't assume it's anything more than their usual screw ups from putting these store updates together seemingly at the last minute.

To cut through the bullshit of Ass Creed would be to leave almost nothing left. They are the very definition of generic sandbox games.

 

AC1 was the start of the series and was the only game that actually pretended to be intelligent writing-wise which is kinda sad as the mission design was extremely weak.

 

AC2 was the start of the modern formula, borrowing more from GTA than AC's setup. It had two sequels. ACB and ACR. I never played ACR, or anything else I'm about to mention for that matter. ACB felt like an expansion pack but not an unsatisfying one.

 

All AC games take place in beautiful bustling cities. That's part of the charm. But AC3 is the only one that takes place in the only true country: AMERICA. I haven't played it but I have heard almost nothing good about AC3, complaints about atrocious pacing and storytelling abound. And even in the dismal revolving door pseudo-history where every single person who was linked from ancient Italians page on Wikipedia was a templar or assassin, that is saying something. AC Liberation is I think a pseudo spinoff of AC3. It was originally a Vita game I think, or even a PSP game I can't keep up.

 

On the contrary, everyone liked AC4 in which you were a pirate, so it sounds like you played an actiony Ubi-style Sid Meier's Pirates in between your generic AC adventure. Still haven't played it. AC Freedom Cry is a standalone expansion to AC4 where you play a black guy.

 

AC Unity takes you to France and apparently a crapload of bugs. Nobody liked this one.

 

AC Rogue was the B-team's effort released at the same time as Unity. Everyone hated Unity so much I don't think anyone paid any attention to Rogue but everyone I have seen said it had AC4's piracy game and was good because of that. Supposedly you're an assassin that goes rogue for the templars or something betrayed blah blah but anyone, at THIS point in the series, who thinks that sounds compelling? You probably just arrived here from GameFAQs.

 

ACC China is a side scrolling stealth platformer. People have compared it to Mark the Ninja which is ridiculously high praise. I don't believe that myself.

 

I'm hard on the series, but there are some good points. The basic grind mechanics are pretty compelling at times and foot chases, proto-Batmans combat and some light stealth is not really like anything else you are going to get. The stories are all stupid but they at least understand that you need certain archetypes so in every one I've seen you get at least one compelling and likeable bro character (Except AC1 unless you count the king at the very end, but that narrative was carried by the ACTUAL NARRATIVE...) and the visuals are almost always gorgeous and atmospheric.

 

There is no sense in worrying about this series's plot. If you played AC1 and then AC2 the insane tonal shift is immediately obvious (In AC1, Vidik was a charming, philosophical bad guy who was more than happy to debate ethics with the protag. In AC2 he is a mustache twirling snarling cartoon character and your allies are a rainbow alliance of almost Whedonishly quirky goofballs, quickly sequestering you in some fancy yuppie loft. It was hilarious.

 

Long story short, get ACB or AC4 I guess.

Here's the PS4 Oddworld Theme corrected link. I guess you have to copy paste it.

 

Also, was there a glitch where the game was free or something, or did I get it from a season pass or something like that?

Not to go too far off topic, but yesterday I got my Hori FPSplus PS4/PS3 controller in the mail yesterday. It's great, and I really like the feel of it. This is a Play-Asia link although they don't have any for sale at the moment.

http://www.play-asia...black/13/708wqv

It's a PlayStation controller that is designed in the Xbox orientation which is supposed to make first-person shooters easier to play, but I like it because the Xbox orientation is just more comfortable to me. In the past, I've avoided buying first person shooters on PSN because the Dual Shock just wasn't comfortable for me, but now I wish I had bought the ones from last week's flash sale since I can probably get through them with this controller. My only complaint is that the instructions were in Japanese, but it even made Crazy Taxi more bearable for me on PS3 last night.

Frisky, Run Like Hell (and treasure bundle) should be PS+ members only discount.  I am not PS+ and do not see the discounted price of $1.25... just FYI, thanks for all the great work!

Took a look at it.  I like the form factor.  I know it's mimicking Xbox but Xbox mimicked the general Dreamcast controller layout just adding another stick.  So yeah it should be a better configuration for playing old Dreamcast games like Crazy Taxi.

 

The negatives though, no headphone port, rumble, or motion controls.. and it's a wired controller.  So it's not a complete replacement for PS4 or PS3.  And an overall step backwards being wired.  For PS3 gaming, there are other options for the same layout in a wireless controller.  I've seen em at walmart for pretty reasonable prices without any cut out features.  For PS4 though, yeah this seems to be it for the moment.  I just couldn't do without the headphone port, though I do love the old Dreamcast layout.

So I bought that Driveclub PS+ w/ Season Pass bundle for $20. But the full game still shows up for purchase at $15 and has a "Buy" button under overview in my library. Am I missing something? PSN's handling of downloads/licenses makes me feel like Jiryn. CONFUSED AS HELL.
