#12600718 PSN Weekly Deals - 3/27: Infamous First Light $7.50 Until 3/30! 3/24...

Posted by FriskyTanuki on Yesterday, 04:28 AM

They are absolutely worth playing.  Yes, go in order, start with 1 and stop with 3.  Ascension is a let down.  Part three is just so amazingly epic.  The only problem with it is part 1 suffers from a lack of bosses (the last one is amazing though), but rest assured that is the first thing they fixed in part 2.

 

His red marks are because he is a Spartan warrior.  His skin is pale white because they are the ashes of his wife and daughter he is cursed after killing - hence the name "Ghost of Sparta".  Kind of a spoiler, but you learn that almost right away in the first game so not really.  The why is the important part - also learned fairly early.  You don't really play God of War for the storyline, but just be glad you don't have to wait between part 2 and 3 like those of us that played them when they came out - it has a pretty big cliffhanger.

Nope. You'd have learned the true nature of the red mark if you played Ghost of Sparta.

 

Each game is worth playing and the release order is the best path to playing them, as the story is written with that in mind. The first is the roughest of them all with ideas that aren't revisited again (special meters, long rope/wall fight sequences). The thing that truly makes the series special is the spectacle of the action and the story.

Having a weird error on my Activity feed/alert. Says that a bunch of people liked my activity, but when I select to see which activity they are liking, each one of them brings up the same "cannot find that activity" error.

 

WTF. I feel like I have secret stalkers or something.

You do have secret stalkers, but they work in the NSA.

Never played GOW Ghost of Sparta. Is it worth $6 for my vita collection?

It's up there as one of the best in the series, so it's worth the price.

If you remember the XBL Indie Game MinerDigDeep, SteamWorld Dig is basically that concept mixed with Super Metroid.

#12595857 Any plans to prevent selling of review codes and make proof be necessary to s...

Posted by FriskyTanuki on 26 March 2015 - 08:34 PM

The cat is out of the bag on the CAG who was called out by the PR guy for Axiom Verge for selling a review code here and he has likely been doing so for some time, as evidenced by him deleting posts related to his ill-gotten codes. I haven't seen any mods or Cheapy speak on the subject of what, if anything, will be done about this specific CAG and if there are any plans on curbing this from becoming a common thing in the future, so I was hoping this thread could help address that.

 

I know there are a number of ways to get codes early in a legitimate way (Kickstarter, Early Access, giveaways, and such), so it might be a good idea to have a new thread/guide in the trade forums to have CAGs looking to buy and sell codes they've gotten before launch to ask for or provide proof that things are on the up-and-up. Of course, not everybody here cares about where their cheap, early codes come from, but this sort of stuff would be a step in the right direction.

An interesting bit of news involving CAG and Axiom Verge.




#12594017 Axiom Verge PR Scammed by Fake Reviewer, Who Is Also a CAG Member.

Posted by FriskyTanuki on 25 March 2015 - 11:38 PM

http://dan-adelman.c...-with-a-scammer

 

Dan Adelman, former indie relations guy at Nintendo and now PR Manager for the highly-anticipated Axiom Verge, writes about his first experience with a review code scammer that happens to be a CAG. He tried to do the extra legwork to send out codes to legit sites and Youtubers to avoid some of the nasty situations some devs have been been in, but still got bit by one site that he suspects has been selling codes for years. Definitely give it a read if you want to learn about the indie PR side of code distribution and see how he tries to get the drop on this guy only to have CheapyD nearly ruin his hunt for the confession.

 

Edit: And just to add this from the article, Dan doesn't want there to be a witch hunt to get back at the guy since just outing him this way means more potential targets (developers) will know to ignore any requests and be more vigilant about code distribution.
