#11487987 Zelda Four Swords - Free on E-shop until Feb 2.

Free is free, and this convinced me to open the 3DS XL i bought myself well over a month ago.  Thanks, OP!

Anybody played that NHL 3 on 3 game?  And is it still online(ie, they haven't shut down the servers)?  I remember being tempted to get this way back when it came out, but ultimately opted not to.  Looks like a poor man's NHL Hitz, which was one of my favorite mp games on the original Xbox.

Thanks OP. You look exactly like GuilewasSNK. Whatever happened to that guy?

No idea.  Just switched my avatar a couple of months ago, after like five years using HK-47 from KotoR.  If he happens to reappear and it seems i've ganked his avatar, i'll change it again.

 

Well, maybe pretty bad is too harsh, but my two biggest issues were 1. Bullets blending too easily into the background making them very hard to see sometimes, and 2. The girls "riding" on the ships made it very difficult to tell where the hitboxes are (yes, I know there's a practice mode that shows the hitboxes but you don't want to play the whole game that way.)

I just think there are much better shmups on 360, but I'd go for it at $4-- it's worth that much. I'd just play any of the Cave games first, or Gradius V on PS2 (which I LOVED, wish that one would get a port to newer systems.)

Now that you mention it, wonky sprites/hitboxes did make things a bit hectic, especially when playing three player simultaneous.  On the plus side, the game supports three player simultaneous, which is the first and only time i've seen that in a shmup.  Yeah, i'd love to nab a comprehensive collection of the Gradius, Darius, R-Type, and/or Raiden games.

Nothing for me but I never knew this site existed. Liked them on FB thanks OP will keep my eye out for future deals. 

I've had an account there for years, but this is only the second or third time i've bought anything from them, so don't hold your breath for more amazing deals, ha ha.  Never hurts to be on the mailing list, though.

 

Otomedius Excellent is pretty bad, but if you're a shmup fan you should be able to get $4 worth of entertainment out of it. I bought it when it was full price, unfortunately.

Pretty bad?  It was a total blast from the past for me.  The gameplay is old fashioned and the co-op is unfortunately flawed, but anyone who enjoyed Gradius back in the 16 bit era should enjoy this plenty.  I like it more than i ever did Parodius, which is along the same lines, but sillier.

Yeah, i know Otomedius has been cheap forever, but i finally bit on this one.  Pretty nice price for ZoE, too, i'd say.  They also have Karaoke Revolution: Glee 3 on 360 for $2:

A number two?




#11092849 Sniper Elite V2 $8.99 free ship Gamefly PS3

Posted by happydogs on 27 September 2013 - 07:26 AM

TesticleS, plural?  I was hoping the devs would run with the rumor that he had only one due to an injury he sustained in WWI.

 

I was hoping for the same; alas, the Fuhrer's x-ray kill is identical to everyone else's in that regard.

Anyone wanna talk me into Sniper Elite for $9.xx?

 

I'll talk you out of it:  wait until you can get the Silver Star(ie "GotY") Edition for cheap.  If you buy this game, you *will* want to kill Hitler.  By shooting him through the testicles.  And the DLC lets you do that.




#10851494 Tekken Hybrid PS3 $8 + Free Shipping on Newegg

Posted by happydogs on 22 June 2013 - 05:50 PM

Anyone on the fence should jump on this.  Tekken Tag is one of the all time classics, and still totally playable.  The movie, while no masterpiece, is watchable and entertaining(hell, i'd watch it again just for the Lee scenes).  And if you're a trophy hunter, both Tekken Tag and TTT2 prologue can be platinum'd/100%'d in a day.  For $8, i'm tempted to buy it, and i already own it(LOL).
