As of today, I'm done running deal threads here for the PSN and eShop deals. It's been a great run, but this pandemic has made trying to keep up with these deals more of a drain on my mental health as I gave up too much of my free time to try to get them done the best way I could. I have to do what's best for me and move on to things that bring me more joy and creative fulfillment. These days, Deku Deals and PSN Prices do a better job of keeping up with this stuff than I can ever do, so I'll let somebody else take over these threads and wish them all the best. I'll lock this thread on Sunday so whoever wants to take over can start their own thread.

 

I appreciate all of the support over the years for the various things I've shared and wish you all the best in these tough times.

Appreciate your efforts, and yes, please take care of your mentals.

I've always admired your dedication to this thread Frisky. I've been coming here for about 10 years to look at the psn deals in your nice, neat format. It's the end of an era. Much love and happiness to you. Thanks for all the work.

Your run was what, almost thirteen years? Really incredible. I've regularly admired your dedication in the past, while at the same time wondering how you could possibly keep it up. I'm glad you were able to for so long, but I'm also really glad you're stepping down now and doing what's best for you. Thanks a ton for all of the memories!

Me neither.  Just because there won't be deal lists posted, doesn't mean we can't continue using the thread to discuss PSN games and deals.

I've said it before, but for my money FriskyTanuki is the hardest working man on Cheapassgamer. Your work will definitely be missed, but taking care of yourself always comes first.

On deals, Touhou Double Focus looks like a fun Metroidvania, especially for just a dollar. I haven't played it yet, but I got it bundled with Touhou Genso Wanderer.

My guess is because he keeps the OP and title updated with the latest deals. With his attention to detail it would probably leave an itch to have incorrect deals and bad links hanging around with his name on it.

It's easy enough for someone to create a general discussion and deals thread and start fresh.

Edit: also wanted to say thanks. Especially with the updated storefront I would often wait and scan your lists rather than use the PSN store

I remember my tenure on the Xbox thread and how much work it was, so you've always had my respect for what you do even if we butted heads sometimes. I was kind of hoping someone would eventually offer to take over for you in the eShop thread because managing two of these threads seemed like far too much work for one single person. In any case, thank you for your hard work over the years and enjoy a well-earned retirement.

I think PSPrices is great, but it's better to post the best of the deals here so people can have a conversation about the games on sale.

Going through some PS4 physicals. Deciding what I keep/sell/donate and what to play eventually. Going to do more of these likely have about 40 games to go for those interested. If anyone has any comments let me know.

Thanks Frisky! You put a lot of effort into the deal threads over the years and you've no doubt saved us CAGs an incredible amount of money. You're a CAG MVP for sure.  :whee:

Omega Quintet - This IF game almost put me to sleep. The battle system was kind of wonky and there are character tropes with somewhat bad voice acting. Graphics are OK enough. Story seems really dumb after doing 1 main mission and saving after a bit over an hour of gameplay. 6/10 and a good chance for dropping/selling

 

I'd definitely be interested in OQ or any other physical JRPGs you might have if the price is right.

Thanks for all of the nice things you've been saying. It means a lot. I'll be doing more streaming and video stuff that has been a good stress reliever for me over the past few years, but I'll still be around here.

That is a nice one I didn't know about.

Besides psprices.com I also use psdeal.net.

There are so many options available it's nice to have a selection.

They start with censoring a butt in DMC5, now they're pressuring devs to censor violence/gore. They're trying to out Nintendo Nintendo now.

Clickbait--this is specifically referring to Japanese games, which is still a bad idea, but the article title makes it sound like all games will be affected.

They've already started pressuring Japanese devs to tone down sexual content in games to conform with western standards. With this thrown in as well it just sets a bad standard.

Saw naruto ninja storm legacy is on sale and I was a huge fan of number 2 but never played any of the other ones. Any other fans recommend picking this up?
