True, but I don't think the store will be 'operating' today due to the holiday. That's why new releases like the Konami Anniversary Collection and God's Trigger released on Thursday, 04/18, instead of 04/19.

Today is not a Holiday; Sunday is. We're still two days away. Those games releases yesterday because new releases traditionally happen on the PS store on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Ehhh, today is not Easter, true. However, it is a holiday in both the Christian (Good Friday) and Jewish (Passover) traditions. When I went to Christian school, Good Friday was always a day off from school to attend services.

This is true, but it's not really a major holiday, like say, Christmas. Unless we're talking about a highly religious mom & pop store, no business is going to close for Good Friday.  Me, I'm just happy I can go back to eating meat on Fridays after today for another year.

Yep, can't click on anything yet to see the full list on my end, but, gonna keep my expectations low as the page says save up to 50% and the preview panel is only showing mostly recent-ish releases (like last half year or so.)

1)The game is one of the greatest games ever made. $60 was a bargain.
2) Vanilla? What other version is there?

I was disappointed there was no Flash Sale today. It seems we're due for one and with the holiday weekend it seemed perfect for a Spring Flash Sale. Bah.


Vanilla meaning base game. Not the one that is $6 more for the extra armor and whatever.

Thanks everyone, guess I will pull the trigger.

Didn't we even have a sale on Thanksgiving or something last year? Why is Good Friday suddenly a huge deal?

I had no idea they even sold additional armor. That seems pointless. The game itself is amazing.

It's probably the best racing game of this generation.

So nothing on the flash sale really interested me and I grabbed God of War instead, and, is the give me a challenge difficulty nothing but damage-sponges? I fought the first boss and he took about 50 heavy swings plus whatever damage the kid did with arrows before I killed him (and yeah I counted, by the time the boss hit the 50% hp mark I was pretty bored of fighting him so I got curious.) It felt really weird for what is essentially a tutorial enemy that only has 2 attacks.

 

First impression of the game is that they meant the "balanced experience" difficulty literally, as give me a challenge felt not balanced.

Thanks for the response guys. I ended up getting it and I’m enjoying the crap out of it right now!

ehhh... i actually thought burnout paradise wasn't as good as 2 or 3 because of the the open world and no circuit tracks.
I also like Drive club and the the codemasters games more.

Anyone able to buy anything on the PSN store right now? I keep getting credit card errors even though my stuff is valid. Just curious if anyone else is getting the same thing.

I started on "Challenge" but dropped to "Balanced" before too long because, like you said, the enemies were damage sponges and it was tedious. The game became much more enjoyable on Balanced so no sense slogging through it on Challenge especially since there are no trophies tied to difficulty level. After finishing the story, I even dropped it to the lowest difficulty to finish up the Platinum.

Holy crap, i haven't played Rocket League for maybe over a year. I boot it up because of the Shazam promo and there's all this new stuff with crates and keys and tiers. There's an entire complex ecosystem of trading in-game items between players !

No, even then, Burnout Paradise is way better than any of the Forza Horizon games. They're bland imitations of Burnout Paradise. It's not even close.

Ehh, everyone has their opinions but I enjoyed Forza Horizon 3 more than Burnout Paradise.

Agree to disagree. I am a huge fan of the Burnout Series but the Forza Horizon games kick ass in terms of open world racers. Not even close.

They’re also different types of games with one focusing on takedowns and destruction. The other on a wide variety of racing.

Hell even critics agree : Burnout Paradise 87 on Metacritic. Forza Horizon 3 - 91, Forza Horizon 4 - 94. Personally think 3 is better than 4 but this is just to illustrate your “bland” imitation thing is a load of crap.

But to each their own.

That's fine. I'm not saying it as an objective thing.

Load of crap? Wow. Tell me what you really think. It's fine if you prefer Forza Horizon over Burnout Paradise, but it's not an objective thing.

 

The Forza Horizon games have always come off to me as bland, corporate Burnout Paradise clones with none of the style and attitude to them and nothing that's arcadey about them despite the way people constantly claim they are arcade racers. I still like FH and FH3 a lot, but FH4 undermines the potential fun with lots of bugs/issues and poor design. Burnout Paradise makes exploring the world fun with no collectibles put up in weird places that you can't access until late game when you're done other activities that eventually make them accessible. The game actually emphasizes going about playing the sorts of races you want towards the eventual goal of beating the game and not some weird endless mess of icons that just wants to steal all of your time. The way you unlock cars is actual fun and challenging without resorting to loot crates that are full of boring cosmetics that add nothing to the game. The weather system makes sense and doesn't make a week every month less fun to play the game and doesn't include the dumb Forzathon system where you're asked to spend a week playing in boring, low power cars completing goals that are kind of boring. It's kind of just a superficial game for me that just wants me to play it forever without much giving me a sense of accomplishment in it. Forza Horizon 3 is cool because of the unique environment and the DLC campaigns showing that they didn't take themselves too seriously in going for some crazy locales, but Forza Horizon 4 completely went back on that stuff to a boring British area that is the same kind of forested location like the first two games and from what I've seen, the DLC campaigns aren't changing that much. It's weird to have such a big departure from what made FH3 a cool game.

 

For me, Burnout Paradise has a great feel, great action with the takedowns, and overall great design that just makes it timeless enough that I've beaten the game a few times and own it on every platform. The multiplayer is a thing of beauty that nothing else has really come close to it in terms of giving people some fun challenges to complete as a group. The DLC added a lot of cool types of cars, including some generic versions of legendary cars that play very differently to the rest of the cars, and the new area is a great change of pace from what Paradise City offers. The post-game support even sets it apart to add bikes and a whole campaign around that along with a lot of other features that helped keep that game feeling fresh a year later.

Burnout Paradise is great but it's a bit disingenuous to say that FH3/4 aren't even close.

 

Anyway, Burnout Paradise is a no brainer purchase for $5.  Not going to get much more bang for your buck.
