Stories is worth it for $0.79 just for the art and first couple of playthroughs. 

BUT if you want to get the platinum or see all the timelines, you're going to want to shoot yourself. Becomes extraordinarily repetitive.

Thanks Frisky!

According to psprices, :vita: Valkyrie Revolution is cheapest it has been. Still too rich for my blood.
The Asian physical release is already dirt cheap. At this price for digital, I might as well just import it.

Amazon has it for $20 or less, has been forever.

Ahh nvm, just saw you said for vita. Forgot the 2nd one was also on vita..

If you’re looking for any input, Stories isn’t that great of a game. It was a free game for PS+ a while back. Gameplay is boring and repetitive. Story is kind of amateurish.

Infamous Second Son is a must play. Killzone’s multiplayer was good but the campaign is meh. It was also a launch game so who knows how many people are still playing it.

Thanks CrepeNuts and Quagmilion for the input on Stories, even for $0.74 doesn't seem like it'll be worth it. I like a good challenge, just not one that'll make me crazy. kelo360 I definitely agree about Second Son being a must play. I put Killzone SF on the maybe list for the very reasons you mentioned. I'll pass on it too.

Ended up buying Infamous Second Son so I can eventually get the rest of the trophies and plat the game. May grab NBA Live since it's less than $10.

It's a great game. I had it in my top twenty of the year for 2016.

Frisky, you wrote 4.99 for volume which has vr in it but the vita version is the only one on sale. Ps4 version is still full price

I might get Second Son too just to finish and platinum the game. I missed out on it when it was free on PS+.

It's Cross Buy, so you get both versions either way. Fixed the typo, though.

Bought both Gravity Rush games. I own the first on Vita but didn't play it much. I rather own them physical on PS4 but they are too rare and expensive for me to pass up both for just over $30 digitally.

There were free gift cards out there yesterday, so you just missed it.

Bought Hidden Agenda over BF and was thinking of playing with my family tonight. See that it’s like two hours. Does anyone who has played know if you can save like after an hour or something?

Not sure if my family is capable of sitting for two hours straight for a game. LOL.

Yeah, you can stop whenever you need to. Just make sure everyone downloads the app.

All I got for Christmas was the games I bought myself on sale.

Word.

 

I always assume the game Frisky Business that I see on sale sometimes is just about going through different sales list and correlating everything for ungrateful bastards. 

:lol:

 

Ah well. I love and hate CheapyD, Frisky, BlackBeard (Gamestop Spreadsheet!), and Bloomy (over on the Microsoft thread) for all their hard work. Hate because their hard work makes it more likely for my money to go from savings to expanding the backlog. :)

Same here. Every time I see one of those massive lists typed up, I get nauseous to my stomach because I know I'm about to spend upwards of $100 on games I may or may not end up playing.

 

I'm still reviewing the list right now, but thanks for all the work, Friskeroonie! I'm definitely seeing Bloodborne, the Infamous games, Journey, Kona, Layers of Fear, Observer and Oxenfree in my future. Plus another 30 games from the previous lists. God damn it.

Just in case someone was thinking of Kingdom Hearts games, 1.5+2.5 Remix and 2.8 Prologue are ~$25 (~$20 w/ GCU) at Best Buy this week. It wasnt in the weekly BBY first post, but mentioned further down the thread.

Thx Frisky. MLB 17 & the Drake Collection for me. Having them digital should keep me from trading them in this time :-)

Is it normal to have a US,JPN and EU account? I'm thinking of making a EU account to buy a game or 2 from the psn trade thread.

Without spoilers can someone tell me if last guardian is a satisfying conclusion to ico + sotc? Do you get good lore or conclusions at the end of the game regarding the universe or timeline?

Yeah, I'm not sure how much difference there is on PS4, but the PS3 versions of each store offer some unique games. Hong Kong might be better than Japan since you have a better chance of getting Asian English versions of games that are only in Japan.

Got the entire Uncharted collection digitally! Also Outlast 2 and Dead by Daylight Halloween DLC. Where’s Ratchet & Clank for $8? I’m still regretting now pulling the trigger on that over the summer.

I feel like there's a little more story/lore in last guardian than the first 2, but there's no real answers or anything about the world.

Stories is not a hard game it's just that going after the Plat becomes a boring grind after you've played through the game about 5 or 6 times getting different endings. Each run is less than an hour but there are 25 different endings plus grinding to max out your level and skills. I burned out about halfway through the grind but I still think the game is worth playing especially for such a low price.

Im shocked to see that no one is talking about Bloodbourne Complete being only $13.49. I hate to be that guy, but is Bloodbourne a decent starting point in the Dark Souls/Demon Souls genre of games? Im looking for something to play on the downside when I get tired of Horizon. Ive wanted to pull the trigger on Bloodbourne before but I question if I have the patience required for a playthrough and the dlc. The same goes for Nioh.

I'm decent at games and I played bloodborne for at least six hours, and I still couldn't beat the first boss.
