I bought the physical copy of Heavy Rain/Beyond from Amazon UK without any issue.

Why won't that game drop below $20-25. I've been wanting to import it.

Ha, I don't know. Heavy Rain is one of my all-time fav's, so the $40+ wasn't a big deal for me. Had to own a physical copy.

So is The Stick of Truth gonna let me down since I’ve been loving FbW as much as I have been? I keep thinking I’m near the end of the game and it keeps pumping out awesomeness...

Got my 15 last night. I had 2 bucks in my wallet still so I snagged RE:Origins bundle. Been probably a decade since I’ve played 0

The cheapest I've seen it is 34.99 and I've been checking up on it constantly for like 2 years :/

Grabbed Nier and Darksiders with my $15 credit for a total of $19. So happy that my Nier save carried over to digital, I really didn't want to start all the way from the beginning again. Also, Darksiders Remastered looks and plays damn good.

Thanks. I already have a 32GB card so no problem.
 
Thanks. Im still in doubt which game I should play 1st as I never ever played any and I really dont know what to expect.
Will try to read more.

Thanks both

people typically say ayesha to play first since it is easier for people new to the series.  imo its alright but has a really weak cast.  And the airheaded ditz ayesha isn't what one looks for in a protagonist.  Regina would have made a better lead.  She is far more likable and besides the owner she is one of the few characters to even get a backstory.

 

Pana needs a spinoff dammit.

 

 

Oh and rorona plus hwas a physical ps3 version so I highly rec going that route for it assuming you pick up the arland trilogy.  Generally rorona is the least recd title of both its trilogy and the series.  I have only played ayesha so I cant comment to the quality of arland.

 

 

If you are interested in sacrificing the plus content you could pick up all the ps3 versions of the series far cheaper than the plus versions and they all run better.

Anyone see any hidden gems in this sale?

My recomendation is The Castle Game if you like tower defense or castle building. Watch some vids, if it looks like youll like it you will.

Also siralim if you dont need a game to look fancy. Colllect monsters and take them to battle while you build your base.

And of course crimsonland if you like dual stick shooters.

Any others?

I think I actually liked Stick of Truth more than The Fractured But Whole. They're both solid, enjoyable games but SoT definitely was the funnier of the two in my opinion.

I would love to hear from other CAGs about what PS4-exclusives that are on sale that I should be looking at.

 

Even with all these titles, I'm still not sure what to buy with my $15 - seeing how I already bought Nier and Nioh two weeks ago just to get to the $100 threshold anyway.

Any thoughts on Valley and This War of Mine: The Little Ones for PS4? I would like to hear from those who have played them before making a decision.

I really liked This War of Mine myself. It's a survival game but unlike most of the genre it's wrapped inside something more akin to say The Sims. You are managing hunger, sleep, and all that but the actual gameplay is micro-managing a handful of characters (usually 3-4) and having them do things around your house to keep themselves alive and healthy. This includes a mental state as well so you actually have to find ways to keep them entertained on top of the usual survival tropes.

 

Then at night you can send someone out to explore a location from a world map. The locations you can go range from abandoned houses, NPC camps where you can barter, or places labelled as danger zones with hostile NPCs (but of course these places usually have tons of supplies.) The game has combat but it's not really a focus, actually every single time I encountered an enemy if I did not escape I was flat out murdered. It also tries to have some morality themes so you can steal supplies from innocent NPCs but I found it a hassle in practice because it typically effects your character's mental status in a negative way. Granted the characters are not randomly generated, it grabs from a pre-determined pool and they all have their own traits so maybe I always got characters who felt real bad about stealing, I dunno.

 

That's basically it honestly, if it sounds fun to you it probably will be. It's a pretty well balanced game actually, usually survival stuff can be pretty harsh and while I wouldn't call This War of Mine easy it's not super hard either. I "won" (by surviving until there is a peace treaty) on my second attempt. I will say if you aren't someone who likes doing multiple runs it's probably not a game for you, it typically only takes a few hours to win or for the whole thing to crash and burn and a lot of the fun comes from starting a new game and seeing what characters you have and the state of the world map each time (because while the levels aren't randomized what occupies the level changes each time.)

 

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is infuriating, especially for someone with no natural sense of direction like me.

Yeah I have super mixed feelings about the game myself, some tiny bits of interesting character drama in there but without a guide you absolutely miss the vast majority of it. The thing I did not actually realize until I went back with a guide is that each section of the map is actually devoted to one character and their last few days before crap went bad, it's actually cohesive when you follow it from start to end but that is basically impossible to do on your own - especially because each event you stumble across actually has a chronological order you are meant to find them in. 

 

And yes the run speed is the worst part of the game, it's not random though, just has an insane wind up before you hit top speed (something absurd like 6 or 7 second each time.) I liked the game more when I went back with a guide but even then I'd say I only really liked maybe 1 of the characters. The actual main narrative itself I found fairly interesting but the game is like 10% that 90% character development so that's not great when your characters are not interesting or worse completely insufferable.

I couldn't sleep, so I ended up playing through it again using a walkthrough, which is the most boring way to play a game. But you're absolutely right; once you hit all the story points (and actually know which direction you're headed), it's a lot more intelligible. It took me approximately 5 hours using the completionist guide and I wound up getting all trophies but three. Since I'm one platinum away from a $10 credit on Sony Rewards, I'll probably gather it tomorrow after I've slept off this video game hangover.

 

Anyway, for $3.99, it's not a bad game.

Reading all of you talk about Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, I'm glad I gave up.  I got that feeling that I'm missing parts of the story and I hate missing parts when the whole point of the game is to figure out the story.  Following a walkthrough takes all the fun out of the game.  I'd rather just read a transcript of the story than go step by step pc to PS4 looking for the parts.

 

Maybe I'll start again someday when I have nothing else to play.

I used my $15 to pre-order Dragon’s Crown Pro. With the current ps+ discount it brings it down to $29.99. Which is cheaper than buying it at Best Buy with GCU. Sure, I don’t get a fancy steel book but I already have physical copies of the ps3 and vita versions on my shelf.

Thanks for the breakdown on This War of Mine, been looking to try different types of games. Sounds like something I will enjoy playing indeed, gonna buy it. Now just have to find out if Valley is worth buying from someone who has played it.

They are toying with the idea of a Yakuza 0-2..  but I don't think you can discredit the whole series because of 1 entry especially when 6 is coming out in a few weeks..

Maybe I'll start again someday when I have nothing else to play.

I played The Vanishing of Ethan Carter today (currently on sale for $5.99) and it seemed heavily inspired by Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (along with Murdered: Soul Suspect), except you have the ability to zip around the map a lot quicker. It's funny, as soon as it starts out it tells you "this game doesn't hold your hand." And indeed, you're deposited in the middle of this world without an introduction or any inclination of what to do but "explore." If I hadn't just been through this shit with Rapture, it would have driven me nuts, but this time I was much better equipped to figure it out on my own. Problem is, it's a minimal game trapped inside a huge environment which makes it feel longer than it has to be because you're mostly wandering around aimlessly hoping to stumble into something.

 

I can really only recommend it to fans of walking simulators or people with lots of patience (perhaps, both).
