#13652181 Nintendo eShop Deals - 3/23: Atlus, Nordic, & Xseed Sales! $7.49...

Xenoblade X can be found a lot of places for $30 like Walmart and GameStop, the Nintendo store has the Special edition for $45

Woops, sorry, missed this. Thanks.  I should have specified, I have been sucked into preferring digital downloads.  Especially with the Wii U going bye-bye, I definitely don't want to have game boxes to cart around with me when I move.  I know it's silly.  I'm good with paying $10 extra for the digital download.

I thought the holiday sale was all right, and I've been following since 2009.  However, the last two weeks strike me as the worst ever.  I gave last week a pass considering it was in the wake of the holiday sales, but this week too?

I have been playing Tomb Raider since I bought it for like $6. It is amazing how similar it is to Uncharted. It basically took it and made it worse by adding a lot of those horrible no control moments(which is ironically the same reason uncharted started to turn to shit after 2). You know what I am talking about. Those awful *hold up* moments, etc.
 
This is the reason why the soulsborne games are so popular. They are just pure gameplay. You have 100% control over your character at all times. Even in the hub in bloodborne you could attack the doll and do whatever.


They make fun, but you speak wisdom. I agree. Quick time events are not gameplay.

Yeah, I just Platinumed Day of the Tentacle and had a lot of fun with it. I got the game when it first came out back in 1993 but it came with a full hint book so I ended up barely trying to figure out the puzzles on my own and rushing through the game due to me having no willpower. Played through this time without looking at a guide except for trophy cleanup and I would suggest everyone do the same since the puzzles aren't too obscure like in Grim Fandango.

 

I'm glad there aren't any new games I'm interested in coming out for several weeks. Good chance to finish up a few games and maybe clear a few from the backlog.

I've purchased it four times now, I think, and wouldn't mind buying it a fifth on iPad!  (In addition to PS4, I have it on Steam.)

 

I original bought it on 3.5" floppies.  I remember making my family watch the intro over and over, because it was full talkie even on the disk version.  But then I got it on CD as well when I got a CD-ROM drive for the full talkie.  Oddly, now I am nostalgic for the days of no talkie, just fantastic music and sound effects with plenty of text!

 

I had totally forgot it came with a hint book.  I remember when I first played it (SPOILER!!!), I did not realize that Dr. Fred had the battery plans on his bulletin board right there in the basement, same place where he asks for them I believe.  So I spent a great deal of time with Bernard going all over the hotel asking people if they'd seen the battery plans.  There's a huge amount of dialogue one would miss if one were smarter than myself and realized where they were in the first place.

 

I must have broken out the hint book when I finally gave up on trying to find the battery plans!  But now when I play it again, I sort of want to pretend I don't know where the battery plans are, just to re-experience that.  That's probably one of the few puzzles I actually remember from the game.

You guys are in luck if you don't have any/many of these.  Day of the Tentacle is one of the best adventure games ever made (best point and click ever, in my opinion); This War of Mine is an absorbing and creative strategy/sim/life-thing and a hell of a lot of fun; Titan Souls is great but too damn hard for me.

 

I already had them all!  I'm not super excited about The Swindle, Azkend or Blazerush (couldn't they have given us the PS4 version as well at least?)

 

Great month for folks that have been thrifty; not so good if you already sprung for all these.  I think I bought the ones I mentioned in the first paragraph all at full price, and they're definitely worth it.

Stories and Invisible Inc would be great if I didn't already have them.  VVVVV is nice I suppose although I have it on a billion other platforms.

 

But I don't think I want Tiny Troopers or Color Guardians cluttering up my download list, even for free.  Kind of a piss take.

Weird. Got a $10 code on PS4/PSN from Sony for whatever reason.

I do too, but I haven't gotten my $15 yet.  What the heck?  I thought, hey, why is it $10 instead of $15?  But I guess it is two separate things.

 

I really really wanted to like KH 1 but never could get past the Alice in Wonderland part. Blasphemy I know. :(
 

I loved the hell out of the first Kingdom Hearts (I think I was 20? never even a Disney fan), but every single KH franchise experience past that first game felt tedious, boring and obnoxious to me.  I can't even figure out why people like it now.  KH2 just felt like going through a linear corridor, button mashing, watching a lame story that barely made sense, repeat.  The first one never felt like that to me.  (I did like the Winnie the Pooh levels in KH2 though.)

I love how my PS4 lectures me every time there's a power outage, like it's my fault.

that's another problem too, when you have slow net and psn is slow it's double slow
 
Literally all us gamers want is a way to keep all of our purchased games ready to play over the entire duration of the generation
 
sure there are work arounds but if we don't speak with our wallets and posts nothing will ever change.
 
Also many of us are ready to go full digital from now into the future and it makes it harder when you gotta say "hold on friends that came over to game let me go ahead and delete a game and download the one we want to play for the next 12 hours-2days because my hd is full" lol


It wouldn't be double slow. It would be the speed of whichever was slowest at the given time. I understand your frustration, though.

I guess I was playing PC games in 1991 with a 20mb hard drive, so I could only have one 12mb game installed at a time. I am used to it. Things are pretty good now. I'm fine planning ahead a bit, but I don't have friends over much, and my internet is decent (except when PSN is not). I'm full digital and happy that way.

There are always going to be hiccups, and they will affect some of us more than others (like they affected me with a 20mb hard drive in 1991 when I was 9 years old and other people had way larger hard drives and.... CD-ROM drives!). Sony doesn't know or care whether you are replacing your hard drive or not, though. As someone else said, this is an issue that will be ameliorated when storage finally catches up. We are at an awkward time where optical and magnetic storage are both dying long and painful deaths. You probably still have purchased more than the average gamer, and Sony probably thinks you're quite happy with them and a great customer.

You're 100% protected with credit cards. Notice bad transactions, report them, they're cleared and you move on. No fear. Id suggest not tying a debit card cause that will ping actual funds but do credit cards like crazy.

  

Problem with that is that the moment you report and there is a charge back on that account Playstation will automatically ban you and you will lose every digital content on that account as well as the PS+ sub you have on it. I suppose you can attempt to dispute it with Sony but I'd rather not chance it.


This happened to me, and I'm here to tell anyone reading, DO NOT EVER DO THAT. When Gawker got hacked back in the day, they got my e-mail/password combo from there, because I used the same e-mail/password combo for everything. (Now I don't, and I use two-step where ever I can.) So, they used that to log into my PSN, added like 9 PSPs to my account, and took maybe $50 from my credit card. I guess either my credit card company called BS on it, or I noticed it somehow and did. (This is back before digital was a big deal, so I might have looked at my card and been like, "Huh?? I didn't buy anything on PSN!")

Anyway, whether it was me or my CC company, the charge was disputed. Sony immediately locked me out of my account. I e-mailed back and forth with them but did not want to get on the phone with them. Again, this is before digital was a big deal. I had quite a lot of stuff on there for the time but not enough to get me on the horn. I figured I'd sort it out eventually, as I did want my stuff back.

Eventually I got a Vita, and I had started wanting to do digital on PS3. There were more and more sales. So, annoyedly, I finally called Sony. This is when they told me that any time a charge is disputed, they block the account permanently. They said there was nothing they could do. Then, they went on to LAUGH AT ME and BLAME ME and say I must have given my password out to friends! This went on and on. They said, if it was really due to the Gawker hack, why did I wait so long to resolve it? Because they are a bunch of assholes I didn't want to sit on the phone with, that's why.

I filed a claim with the BBB. that got Sony's attention fast. Someone from Sony ( a higher up) called me and said they would just take my remaining wallet balance ($20) and we could call it even. I just wanted it over and done with, so I said fine, do it. So basically they got free money from me after all my trouble, and I got back into my account. He gave me his number and said to call him personally if I ever had trouble again.

But still, the whole thing was absolutely ridiculous, and they should be ashamed of themselves. I'm probably one of PSN's best customers.

Anyway, for a long time after that, I just bought PSN cards rather than using my Paypal or CC on PSN, but it is a pain in the ass... So my CC is back on my PSN. I use a ridiculous password, change it frequently, have two-step turned on, and whatever else, and use different passwords for everything now, so at least it would not be as easy for me to get hacked now.

This morning on the pot, I noticed Frisky posted the PS4 World of Final Fantasy demo was out. From my phone, I "purchased" it, went to my download list, and set it to download. I went to work.

I got home, worked out, blah blah. It's been about 10 hours. I just sat down and turned on my PS4, and it just started downloading it now when I turned my PS4 on. What gives? What's the point of sleep mode if it sits there all day and doesn't download what I wanted it to download?

After playing DQ builders for 15 seconds I am fine with O being jump since you rarely have to jump in the game

If you play for more than 15 seconds, you have to jump quite a bit more.  But maybe after you play for 15 seconds next time, you can change it, play 15 seconds, change it back, then change it again, then feel salty tears sting your bleeding thumbs.

 

Frisky provided you with a solution to your problem. If you can't spend 5 seconds changing a setting back when you're done playing the game that's on you.

Meng, we all love some Frisky, but you gotta get off his jock or he won't be able to keep posting deals.

 

Though I like Frisky, I did not like his solution, so I'm very pleased to hear the full version has the option.  Not that it would be a deal-breaker for me.  I enjoyed the demo more than I should have, I think.  Guilty pleasure game, I guess.

It literally took me about two hours just to get into my first battle with monsters.  Part of it was I usually take my damn time with RPGs, talking to NPCs multiple times and checking everything for hidden items.  But still, even my patience was wearing thin.  5 hours in though, it's definitely a better experience for me.  Not sure I'll put in the 100 hours like some people, but I'll see how far I can get.

Two hours??  I swear the original PlayStation version had a much longer intro.  I remember really enjoying it.  Didn't mind it this time either, though it felt SHORT...  You guys have no stamina.  We should appreciate when a game is about more than just killing stuff.
