PSA: The AC/DC table is being delisted at the end of the month. Don't know why they have the sale until 7/11, seems misleading that

#14160237 Nintendo eShop Deals - 2/11: Capcom/Namco/Ubisoft Sales! $20 Hades,...

Posted by chipzilla on 29 April 2019 - 08:22 PM

Keep in mind that Frisky only posts the 3DS and Wii U deals for me anyway because I'm the only CAG who is too poor to own a Switch.

 

I just use my general dislike of Nintendo as a corporation and its holier-than-thou approach to gaming to hide my shame.  8-[

Also here only for the 3DS deals.

 

I had originally planned on getting a Wii U this round besides a PS4, but never caught a sale on a new one and then it died an early death. And I have already bowed out of the Microsoft ecosystem after the 360. Just don't have the time / energy to pay attention to multiple marketplaces / consoles going forward considering I already have an s*ton of unplayed games.

 

I am contemplating not moving forward with Sony either, but with the rumored BC for PS4 (including VR) on the PS5, I'll reconsider (would probably just prefer an improved PS Now service at this point).

 

 

But back to 3DS, this of course is no surprise: https://kotaku.com/w...-3ds-1834341535

Anyone that bought some of those pinball arcade seasons still having issues accessing them like I am? I bought seasons 4 and 5 and they still aren’t showing up in the game. And going through the store to them causes an error as well.

Don't know if any of this will help, but here goes:

Make sure you get Firewatch that is bundled with the dynamic theme. It’s one of the best dynamic themes on PS4 IMHO.

I would REALLY like it if we had the option to use the default sound effects (up/down left/right) for themes. There are some great themes like the ones for Rez & Uncharted but if a theme uses something other than the default sound effects, I grow increasingly annoyed by them and can't use them for long.

 

I had considered the theme bundle and checked out the video, thought it looks great but the FX would likely get to me. Haven't bought yet and doesn't cost much so I may still get it. The sounds are definitely not the worst I've heard. 




#13961163 PSN Flash Sale ends 3/12 @ 11 AM ET/8 AM PT

Question for Project Cars: Complete Edition digital owners:

 

Does purchasing the Complete Edition grant you access to Project Cars vanilla and its' DLC (shows as purchased on the PS Store), or is the Complete Edition a separate download that includes the game and DLC all-in-one, ala Shadow of Mordor?

 

I ask because I own Project Cars vanilla, and the store lists the Complete Edition as purchasable, which is usually not the case.

  • We all knew this would happen eventually. (Though I thought it would be around the time a new console is announced. We would have heard at least some concrete rumors by now if a new console was to be released even by end of 2020. And with Nintendo's late entry and the enhanced Pro & OneX, this gen will probably last a little longer than generally expected.)

 

  • Just a warning but, 360 GWG games will eventually end as well. Especially with a BC requirement since, as we all know, 360 BC is dead already. :D

 

  • We do now receive VR games here and there from Plus, which was an addition we weren't paying extra for already. By next year there will be a stable of older VR games that developers will probably be happy to give thru Plus for new revenue. My guess is that we will be getting at least one VR additional game per month by then.

 

  • We will still see some PS3 and Vita games that are cross-buy with the PS4 games they give in the future.

 

  • Opinion, but the real worth of Plus is (besides MP) is the discounts. The discounts EASILY give me return on investment. Most here are probably the same, you don't follow this thread to see what the Plus games are each month. Besides, half the time I already own the games anyway, which doesn't bother me since I most probably got a sweet discount on it. The other half is cake.

Indeed. I'm kind of a chicken shit when it comes to jump scares and I don't enjoy that panicked feeling of being chased.

 

Also my avatar is a band logo  :D/

This might have been posted before, but just in case:

Looks like I'm going to have to go back to WipEout HD & 2048 to get as many multiplayer trophies as possible.

Don't know the current population of the multiplayer, but I have both WipEout HD/Fury & 2048 if you need someone to play with. May have played a small bit of MP for 2048, don't think any for HD/Fury. Also have Killzone 2 & 3, played 2's MP extensively and 3's for a short time, both fun.

Thank you! I will get in on the community and likely pick up a few more of those tables. I wish the Fox tables appealed to me more but I’ve only ever seen Family Guy.

I am leaning towards the sci fi pack and maybe the essentials one (is that the one with pasha and bio lab? I liked those in fx2). I didn’t like the universal tables but might give them another shot. The demo timer is way too short.

Yeah, the Fox pack is my least favorite, I was focusing in on beginner friendly.

 

 

Bob's Burgers is a must watch:

Yup grabbed those. Also grabbed the pack with epic quest since I liked that one in fx2. Any other good tables for a beginner/bad pinball player?

 

Balls of Glory Pinball - 3 of the 4 tables are probably the most beginner friendly of tables (Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, American Dad) the other (Archer) is one of the more difficult tables.

 

Universal Classics Pinball - Haven't played much of these since they were the latest tables until now, but like what I've played so far and seem pretty noob friendly.

 

Sci-Fi Pack - All three tables are great. Paranormal is considered among the best of their tables and one of my personal favorite tables is Mars. I would call this pack an essential.

 

Marvel: Cinematic Pack & Women of Power Pack - Of the Marvel tables, these are the mostly beginner friendly packs. Others contain tables I like better but are paired with tables either not as good or somewhat difficult. The Heavy Hitters pack is probably the most un noob friendly pack of all FX3, though the Civil War table compels me to master it.

 

Star Wars: Balance of the Force & Heroes Within - Sane as above. The Darth Vader table from the first is one of my favorite Star Wars tables.

 

 

There are demos for all the tables, so you can always try before you buy.

 

Also, there is a very good PSN community for FX3 that can be helpful. Of the few communities I belong to, this one is by far the most active with posts pretty much daily. Don't remember the name of it but it is run by Knife-8.

 Maybe if a trophy were up for grabs someone would then be motivated to fix/change the way price sorting works on the ps store.

I'm not sure about that either. I could let you know if they ever put some of the Vita versions of the tables on sale.

 

Well there is four more weeks of sales fingers crossed for some of the tables from Zen Pinball 2 being on sale.

Zen have rarely put their tables on sale, am actually surprised by all these on sale. Star Wars tables on May the 4th, Paranormal around Halloween, sure there were a others but they seem few and far between. I've mostly bought them when I have a % off coupon or a spend $100 get credit back events. Hopefully this signals sales on tables more often (for others, since I own all the current tables).

#13846636 XBL Deals - 2017, Part II

Posted by chipzilla on 04 October 2017 - 07:57 PM

Thanks for the Google Play link.

It’s a pretty good game from what I’ve played so far. If you like Stranger Things or even SNES-era style puzzle adventure games, it’s worth a download.

 
Rarely play mobile games. Don't pay attention to that scene but if someone recommends one and it looks interesting (and free of course), I'll download it and add it to the waybacklog.
 
And never seen Stranger Things (don't have Netflix). Reading about it though, sounds like I would like the show.
And Winona Ryder seals the deal.

On an off topic but not political note, a Stanger Things game is out on mobile and it’s pretty cool (80s themed pixel adventure). Also completely free (no IAPs).
