#14188213 PSN Weekly Deals - 7/22: Summer Sale! $21 Control, $20 Chocobo...

Posted by Althax on 12 July 2019 - 02:46 PM

I am super tempted by the DMC bundle but I’ve never been able to get into DMC games. They’re so heavily combo centered and I’ve never been good at long strings of fast input combos...

Should I go for it anyway?

If they promoted child porn, they would be shut down. They'll hide behind freedom of speech.


Oh I get it. This is one of those things where the internet SJWs have tried and convicted a company based upon guilt by association. Thanks for clearing that up.

Just read on Twitter that Path of Exile is finally coming to PS4 on March 26th, along with its new expansion Synthesis. I'm excited to try it.


This deserves a quote, upvote, thumbs up, and high five!

Hyyyyyyype!!

Is anyone else excited about Parh of Exile coming to PS4? I know it’s probably better on the PC but I don’t have a gaming PC anymore and POE looks excellent!

Witcher 3 complete for 15$!? Had it been that low before?

I have said no at 20$ despite being tempted over and over again but at 15... I don’t know if I can resist!!

If you're not going to even start it, then don't bother. If you're not going to finish it, then eh.


Both of these are questions I have about my own time to put into it.

Has-been heroes mini review

Total hidden GEM!

What a wildly interesting, unique, difficult, wonderful game.


I dont even know where to start. You navigate rooms sort of like binding of Isaac, where each room can be combat, or a shop, or something else. As you play games, you unlock more... more enemies, bigger dungeons, different rooms, new items, spells, characters. Your first game will be like 5 rooms.... But eventually you'll be playing huge games. There is a ton of content.

Combat is where this shines. You select 3 heroes, each with different starting loadouts. There are three lanes, and you need to manage enemies marching towards you plants vs zombies style.

This is truly impossible to explain,but basically it's like a super intense combat management game. Enemies can block hits X times, but if you can get them to exactly 0 blocks, you stun them and can knock a block off. So for example, if an enemy has 5 blocks, you might hit them 3 times with your rogue, then twice with your mage to stun them, then your fighter hits for big damage and knocks them to the back of their lane and now they only have 4 blocks. Multiply this by hordes of enemies along 3 lanes, up to 5 spells per character each with timers, and every game quite different due to finding different spells and items, and you end up with a fantastic game.

Highly recommended. If you like Tactical games, roguelikes, puzzle games, xcetera you should check it out.


Thank you for this post. I likely wouldn’t have heard about this game and it sounds different and interesting. Will definitely look into it.

No way, let's dive fully into this brewing The Last of Us debate!


There really isn’t a debate.

A lot of gamers find the story and characters deep and engrossing.


And other gamers read books as well as play games.

it's only polarizing here where it's "cool" to hate popular games, it's loved everywhere else


It’s polarizing because if someone dares to suggest that it’s overrated or that they couldn’t get into it, everyone else jumps on them.

I'm holding off on the ps plus 12 month sub. If $40 is the price everywhere, Amazon or somebody is bound to have a random lightning deal for like 35 or less.


Idk about that. 40$ is the lowest it got last year from what I can remember. At this point I didn’t even hesitate on a 40$ renewal.

Ok so I bought several zen pinball 2 table packs and most of them I was able to purchase for free on fx3. However, two of the marvel packs will not show up as free for me and I can’t import them in fx3. Any suggestions on how to unlock those tables?


Ok for anyone else with this issue here’s how I solved it. I had to go buy the free vita version first then that made the PS4 version free to buy.

Ah man Frisky, Don’t let the negativity get you down. The vast majority of us know you do a shit ton of work on this site and in this thread and we appreciate it.

You do good work and I for one appreciate the hell out of these posts and threads. I’m Just part of the silent majority that’s busy getting shit done and often don’t have the time to drop a line and say thanks.

Don’t let the internet get to you. It’s the Home of people with way too much time on their hands and who are too easily upset or offended about whatever thing didn’t go their way today. We all just hear their voices more often because everyone else is doing their thing and not worrying about a poor sale or a lack of a sale or whatever bullshit everyone is upset about today.

We love you and appreciate you Frisky.

What stinks is that the ultimate goal of dating is having kids. Which means a total killing off of your free time.

So yeah, enjoy the dry spells cause man... I would love a weekend to myself!

Did people not play Rogue Legacy or something? Dead Cells is almost identical.


The combat in dead cells feels so much faster and smoother. I like them both and in fact I find myself drawn to lots of rogue likes but dead cells is something special...
