Very cool!  Thanks CAG and Swappa!


In Topic: PSN Flash Sale ends 1/22 @ 11 AM ET/8 AM PT

I just bought Parappa and played through the campaign in one sitting, on the default difficulty, and I didn't have any real problems except for being able to confirm what everyone says about the timing being wrong in stage 4.  It took me about half a dozen tries to beat stage 4, but I finally finished it with a Good! after realizing that, only in that stage, you have to hit the buttons so Parappa says the words just a fraction of a second too early.  Weird.  I don't remember if it was that way in the PS1 or PSP versions, but that stage does feel a bit broken.  The timing felt pretty good on the rest of the stages, though, or at least as good as it was on the ps1/psp.

Yep, the original was like that, too.  I got the original on the first release and loved it up until stage 4.  You can ask my college roommates just how much I flipped out during that stage every time I lost.  The PSP version was also like that I think.  I would beat the game many times overall, but it's disappointing to read that this remaster didn't at least fix this stage.  

Still, I may buy it during the flash sale despite how the tap timing has always been off.  It's still so hard not to love the utterly lovable characters, songs, and presentation after all these years.

I didn't even get a notification :/ Well, congrats to those who did get it, though. I have a couple friends who can hopefully get me one this week, so I wish each of you also still hunting the best of luck!

Though I know it's no guarantee, I did manage to get on the waitlist (after it went OOS just before I had one click to finalize my order *sob* :D).

Have others previously on the waitlist manage to get a notification for more restock in the past? A little hope would be nice, I'm not banking on it ;D

Nevermind; the event starts at 8pm so I'll miss the release tonight. anyway  Looking forward to tomorrow, though :)

 

My Best Buy is doing a 9:01pm release tonight for Super Mario Odyssey near me (Washington State).  How long does the store stay open for releases such as this?  Until the line dies down, for one hour, etc.?  What have been your experiences?

 

Sorry to ask this here but I spent 30 minutes on the phone with their system and eventually two kind, but uninformed human beings (not their fault at all; seems like Best Buy doesn't even inform their phone reps) and for an hour on their website and online trying to find the answer.  I came up with nothing and the website doesn't list an end time.

 

I'm coming from an event that probably goes past 9pm tonight and I just wanted to know if it was worth heading there afterward to pick up my preorder or just pick it up tomorrow after work.

 

Thanks in advance, fellow CAGs!
