#14060599 PSN Weekly Deals - 11/13: Black Friday Prep, Choice Provisions, EA, Final Fan...

Posted by CAiNiAC on 01 October 2018 - 05:13 PM

You know some people just want to beat a game? And a large majority never seem to beat any games? I'm just on the other side, I like to squeeze every ounce of game out of the game. It's not that I want a platinum trophy, is that a spent money on the game, like the game, and getting the Platinum feels like mastering it. I'll do the same thing with stupid flash games and Android games, getting 3 stars on every level even if I don't really like the game.

It's not really an issue until you add in terribly designed trophies that don't respect the player. I have no issue with beating a game on a high difficulty level, I find most games too easy anyway. But in a single playthrough? Silly. Or difficulty levels don't stack so you have to play a game 10 times? Awful. As long as trophies are created in a thoughtful manner I think they're a great idea. Unfortunately once you get in the habit of getting platinum's you'll run into games where all of a sudden you realize there's one grindy trophy between you and the plat.

 

 

I think the issue is just avoiding a game all together because of a trophy. Thats holding a bit too much influence over someone.

The DQ XI CE is going for stupid money on eBay. It's not even in an actual CE box (game is separate) and the game doesn't even have exclusive cover art. Very surprising to see that. 

 

 

Every time this happens it feels better than the last.

Wonder what the material ratio for the helmet is and does it also have any functions like a light or something.

 

 

Headlamp, voice modulator and VATS sound effects.

Fallout 76 has always-online DRM, even for single player, so the disc you're collecting will be a coaster when they turn off the servers.  This is just as pointless as buying Lawbreakers Collector's Edition.

 

 

No ones buying it for the disc.

Kingdom Hearts 3 CE is up on the SE Store. Another exclusive. $229.99.

 

 

I'll stick with my $40 preorder on Amazon for years ago, heh.

Yeah, this DQ CE was a no brainer for me. Ordered instantly.

 

Now to patiently wait for the bitching we'll hear when this thing goes OOS in a month and everyone wants it.

You all forgot this announcement today.

Forgot, or chose to willfully ignore?

 

That price is laughable.

I highly doubt anyone will pay full-price for that DLC at this point.

 

I don't know. I would think that since they keep doing it it must be selling. I wouldn't find it too surprising that there are impulse buyers out there who will splurge on full priced DLC when a base game is cheap. It doesn't make a lot of sense to our small community but if there are whales out there dropping hundreds on in app purchases every week in some games theres bound to be people willing to throw down for things like this.

3 different games on the same day? I feel like Limited Run Games aren't so limited anymore.

 

 

Limited print runs, not limited number of releases.

The market for LRG is pretty weak. CS prolly moved on. Maybe he comes back for the strong releases.

 

The only way that guy moved on from LRG releases would be to the afterlife.

 

Thats one troubled dude.

I definitely have interest in pretty much any Switch steelbook but they are doing an excellent job making me not want to buy normal games. "Outer cover is randomized so if you want to guarantee the cover you want buy 2!" Lmao get fucked

 

 

The covers are reversible. Just buy one and open it like a rational person.

Ack, April is almost over and this is all I have to show for it.

Spoiler

 

Do you actually plan to attempt to play all of these things you purchase or is it just a collection thing?

No clue why someone'd even bother to post the same sad song over and over again anyway, as any publicity is good publicity. Sandy vagina comes quickly to mind though...

I'll take a squad invite. I'm already over 100 hours in. This has been the first game to truly pull me away from For Honor for more than a day or two since last February. Though they'll be pulling me back once season 5 hits.
