Thanks for the opinions on SA. It can wait for a sale, at most.

Good to have you back, Bobby. That sounds like a pretty crappy situation, aside from creating a new life. You can't do anything better in this world, although it sounds like your partner wasn't the one to do it with.

I know it's mediocre, I've read the reviews, and I still want Spartan Assault. I guess I'm a sucker for Halo stuff. The co-op sounds fairly interesting to give it some replay. The problem is there's no way it should be $15 for 360 yet it won't be on sale for a while. Decisions. I almost never pay more than $10 for digital.

I'm kind of interested in a Killzone SF phantom. The multiplayer is awesome. Have we been doing 60/40 on PS4? So $24 and $16?

Also, Beyond is a great game. Really interesting emotional story and some gameplay situations you just don't see in games. There's plenty of gameplay in my opinion. As a parent some parts are tough to get through but any game is pretty incredible to evoke that kind of response from me.

Added you I think, mills, and will anyone else I missed. Thanks for the tips, Pete. This is my first HSG game and it shows I'm sure. I still enjoy it, though, unless things get really out of control on a hole.

Also one of my 2 physical Vita games now. I got The Show from that eBay sale as well. I've had my Vita for over a year and they're my first two! Love Plus!

Posted by stillshadow on 21 January 2014 - 03:26 AM

Yeah, definitely bad design choice, syn. Reminds me of frustration on the old Ratchet and Clank games. Vita is so lightweight of a system and suspends so well that I usually just pause something and hit the power button. Not much battery gets used up and then it's right there to resume in seconds.

Awesome, thanks. It doesn't take much to convince me. I really enjoyed the campaign, not just because it was an accomplishment for Vita. The OWL system was fun.

The multiplayer was straightforward, which I kind of appreciate with how nuts and complicated most upgrade systems and game modes have gotten. The interrogation and capsule things seem unique.

Totally agree, Yanks. No way would I change it out just to do multi so it's perfect just sitting on the memory card for quick sessions.

Hey, I think you've already got this tourney going but I just wanted to add that I'm looking forward to playing this one again. I rented it months ago but finally bought it from that cheap eBay deal. I can't remember all the idiosyncrasies so I will have to learn it again. It's my first HSG game.

I will probably send some FRs to you guys that I don't have on my list just in case we do something else in the future. It's never bad to have CAG Vita owners on your list.

That's cool you liked Blackgate, tek. I couldn't stand it for more than an hour or two. I think I'm just getting too old for the frustration/trial/error/puzzles. Just let me play, have fun, and move on to something else. I can't stand backtracking without even knowing if I'm going the right way.

And the mapping system? Only Blackgate could make me pine for the maps of Doom. IDDQD! You could just run right through every wall, for crying out loud.

Tearaway and Ratchet were awesome, though. I don't think I've ever played a game quite like Tearaway.

Developers could and should start looking at platform agnostic cloud saves so people can move between consoles and PC. I think a lot of people would even pay a little bit for that. A dollar to unlock cloud saving for a title would be enough to cover storage costs, easily.


Sign me up. The fact that it's never been tried before makes me wonder if the console makers have some rule against it? I don't know why they would, though. Seems like good business for everyone.

I don't see a whole lot of talk about the $50 PayPal thing for $10 back. I think it's a great deal. I don't have to buy $50 worth of games I might not want in some arbitrary time period. I never do those. This lets me have funds sit in my wallet that I will eventually use. Going to do it right now.

Seriously, you guys wouldn't shed tears over Nintendo being reduced to Sega status? You must be either too young to care, Genesis kids, or have a heart made of hard stone. Mario on Playstation? Zelda on Xbox? My childhood weeps for thee.

I feel the same way about lack of an achievement system for old/Nintendo games, and I don't like it. I know I will reach a point where I will just have to play the first-party favorites but it is part of what stops me from buying a WiiU. Whatever their motovation it was pretty foolish financially not to just put in an achievement system. Apple even has one, for crying out loud. Just make it optional for the weirdos. What's the harm in that?

I couldn't stand Spelunky for Xbox but I'm probably going to get it again to give it another chance on Vita. No, I don't know what's wrong with me.

Pretty cool that the CAG leaderboard is 2nd biggest on TT now. Nice job vacation.

Okay, I've been missing out on this, too. So that's truetrophies and we can join a subgroup for CAG?

Edit: duh. I'm working backwards through the thread here and see the link now. I actually thought you went on vacation and came back to find the leaderboard higher up.

Actually, it's not bad, I'm just getting extremely frustrated with the Director's Cut DLC. I also absolutely hate touch controls.


Kind of interesting in a semi-Limbo, slow as molasses, touch control way. Normally I hate touch controls as well but it's actually a plus for me being in the same room as a sleeping newborn.

At least the puzzles are manageable to me, unlike Machinarium. Gosh darn that is a frustrating game to me. It's one the highest-rated on Vita and I really wanted to like it. I just can't stand a game at this point in my life that makes me sit in frustration for minutes having no clue what to do. I just want to be entertained and move on. I give up with that one.

Personally, I don't care if a sale goes on free games later. I'm not going to buy them. I think it's weird that people are obsessed with "ownership" and would ever bother. I do, however, think it's a little shady to put a sale title free IMMEDIATELY after the sale like with Rayman. At least give it a month or two to be less transparent and soften the blow a bit.

So Ico is one of the titles coming up for Plus? I'm interested in the Remote Play for it. Has anyone done it for that game?

+1 for clone . bought a slot from him smoothly as always .

 

 

thats a nice idea really , :bouncy:

 

 

Sending PM.

 

 

Awesome, works for me. If you haven't sent me one already, mine is MattNY.

 

Got ya already, Matt, and will add you and send some other requests tonight, Setup. If anyone has a Vita and is friends with me you can look at my list for some other CAG/GS names if you want. I'm Jaskull on XBL for cross-system folks but I've been on my PS3 more these days.

 

This is the only thread I frequent on CAG anymore so I thought it would be fun. Seems like it would be an interesting thing to add to the OP but also isn't really related to gamesharing so I could see why it wouldn't be.
