That would be me...and probably one other guy.

There are some decent deals if you aren't choosy. They even including Criminal Girls 2 and La-Mulana for Vita!

W-why? Just buy Madden 13 and print a new cover, you'll save like 50 bucks.

That's like telling a fighting game fan just to play Street Fighter 2 and print out a new cover for it.  I'm not a Madden player, but for people that love football it is nirvana to get a yearly update, and as I understand it they change more than the rest of us gamers think they do each year (more than just rosters).  There are people that buy consoles just to get the yearly Madden game and no other games.  My wife's co-worker's son is like that, football season is huge.

Are any of the Assassin's Creed Chronicles games better than the others?  Are they worth playing if you haven't played an AC game?

I thought ACC: China was the best of the three, and no, you don't need to have played a prior AC game.

That works for me, added to the backlog!

I really liked all 3, they all have different mechanics that keep them different from each other.  That being said I think Russia was the weakest.  China and India are both about on the same level to me.  And while you don't have to to have played an AC game to enjoy these, there is something to seeing some of the abilities you use in the 3D space put into these 2.5D games.

I still have like 20 or 30 digital only PS3 games I'd like to go on sale but the sales are usually retail games or ones that have been ported to other systems.

And it doesn't help that Codemasters' racing games for PS3 never go below $7.49 even when they're on sale. I hope they get a clue someday that they would probably sell more copies at $5 or less.

Damn. Doom Eternal looks fantastic.

 

Also, I wish these flash sales weren't as insulting as they've been lately.

Are we having another flash sale? I just noticed a few games from my wishlist showing sale prices for this weekend

Two flash sales in two weeks? This is unprecedented! Sadly, nothing on my list. Just a whole lotta regret...

Since most of the games offered are repeats, they could have this sale every week and it wouldn't make a difference either way.

In all honesty I've been achievement farming that game since 2006. 13 is seriously the last one to have any kind of have innovation, the last five have been jokes. Admittedly I'm not playing every game mode for months, but game play wise I've seen NOTHING that made me think I'd ever pay a non Gamefly rental price for it.

One way to make me love Doom even more is to add my favorite Nier: Automata pod program to it. The chain/wire.

 

I just hope they let us fully customize the controls. I used the PS4's button remapping to give the first Doom controls I liked, but then I had to remember how the buttons are switched even in the game menus. I'm going to want to put jump and the chain on the shoulder buttons.

 

After playing Nier: Automata I was thinking of giving Just Cause 3 a try because it has a grappling hook. It's in my PS+ library.

Get the 1st and 2nd to start. If you like them after beating them get 3 to finish the story and the other one if you want a side game between the 1st and 2nd I believe.

Road Rage too broken to get $7.50 out of it?


I too would like to know this, but I can say the last time it was on sale I researched it and decided to wait for Road Redemption instead.

Admittedly I'm not playing every game mode for months, but game play wise I've seen NOTHING that made me think I'd ever pay a non Gamefly rental price for it.

It's the minor details that the fans appreciate.  As I understand the gameplay/movement of runners is a big change this year to be more realistic.  The graphics have pretty much peaked on the game, I don't see how it can really look much better - other than some of the animations not being perfectly smooth it looks pretty much like you see on television now.  Sound also peaked, the play by play is pretty natural and accurate.  Those are the things gamers see most, but the intricate movements matching the game are what matters to the fans - remember many of them aren't gamers first and foremost, they are diehard football fans (many of them buy a console just for that game).  They have a different perspective than we gamers do.

 

Also, one thing to remember that once a new version comes out, the online community for the previous one gets a lot more scarce.  Everyone is playing the new one.

 

And lastly, the cost of a new Madden is pretty damn low in comparison to a game ticket.  Our PSL season pass, upper deck corner 11th row tickets are $85 a seat for a regular season game this season.  Football diehards will pay that in a hot second for a three hour game.  A new copy of Madden for the year is $25 cheaper than one ticket for one game.  If you love NFL, that's a bargain.

Since I got no answers in the Steam thread... has anyone here bought PSN store credit from Direct2Drive? Does anyone know if you can buy multiple $10 codes, or if it only sells a single code to you?

I have enjoyed both DOOM and Wolfenstein, but I would say DOOM hands down if i had to pick between those two.

Im pretty sure Direc2Drive was formerly Gamefly’s digital game storefront. Last I knew they were legit

Is anyone else having problems browsing the web browser PSN store this weekend? I keep getting the error message "Unable to Find This Page.  It may be unavailable or the address may be incorrect. Select [Home] to continue browsing the PlayStation™Store." 

 

I've tried it both on Google Chrome and Firefox, cleared cookies/history on both, tried incognito mode, and the Android PlayStation app too, all receive the message at times when loading a game's page or part of the list of weekly deals and flash sales. 

 

Might actually have to use my consoles' storefronts to get a few of these deals  :shock:
