#11382054 GameFly 2013 Year-End Used Game Sale (12/24 to 1/6)

Posted by waldo21212 on 24 December 2013 - 05:31 PM

Too bad, I was hoping for a repeat of some of the December sales so I could try and grab them before they go OOS.  Oh well, no big loss I guess.

So I'm currently 49 out of 138 in the trophy thingy.  Seems pretty high since I stopped actively going for them a year or so after they were implemented. I guess I play enough different games to rack them up passively. Some of those people at the top, though... what a sad, tedious existence.

Ha!  Number 48, suck it!

Interesting article about Ethan: Meteor Hunter, a PS3 puzzle-platformer that came out about a month or so ago.

No demo, no sale price, and not much press to someone like me who doesn't follow stuff like this closely = no purchase from me.  Too bad, it looks like a game I would enjoy.  I would probably pick it up if it ever goes on sale on PSN for $5 or less.

And it shall spite you back with no trophies.

 

I was just going to say no trophies is probably my biggest complaint, because at least with trophies I probably would have put forth some effort in AC1 (completed more side missions, explored more), but with no trophies I did the minimum amount to finish the game.

 

I think I only did the eavesdrop and pickpocket missions to progress the story.

ARGH!!!  My PS3 just died on me.  Now I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place since my boy and me have been playing Disney Infinity together on it.  Broke my heart when I told him it was broken.  My PS4 preorder is now in jeopardy... not sure if I can swing buying both systems. 

 

DAMN YOU PS4 AND YOUR LACK OF BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY!!!!

 

Curious - was it a fat or a slim PS3?

 

Also, if you aren't opposed to buying a used one, I've had good success with Cowboom - I picked up a Vita and 2nd PS3 (super slim model) from them for $120 and $140, respectively, during their flash sales.

Still doesn't answer the question as to why not just wait until Vita TV is out to play it on your home TV that way? And RO is getting ported to ps3 in Japan with RO Ace coming out so I don't see why SS would be any different. Maybe wouldn't come here though.

 

Either Ubisoft wasn't aware of the Vita TV, or more likely, they like money and decided it the amount it would cost them to port AC:L to PS3 was less than their projected sales for a PS3 version.

 

We still aren't sure if the Vita TV will officially make it outside of Japan.

Have they told us it's a resources problem? because if it is, we could complain to the appropriate person, AFAIK they haven't said that. All they more or less say is we understand and then do nothing.  They talk and do their work like politicians.  If the 'team' is not getting enough resources then they should complain or tell us to complain.  I really don't think that is the issue.  most likely there are way more vita owners in the US so they want us to spend money for games, while in europe they are trying to create a fan base so they entice people to get a vita for example.

 

I still wonder if it's a piracy issue.  By that I mean, in Europe, piracy is more prevalent, so the publishers are more willing to get some money via PS+ freebies vs. no money via piracy.  In the US, since piracy is not as prevalent, they aren't willing to make the same deals.

 

So while EU PS+ team might get the same (or less) money than NA PS+ does, they can get more bang for their buck so to speak.

Just an FYI to anyone who bought the PoP Trilogy - there is a glitch in Warrior Within - if you do the water tower first instead of the mechanical tower.  I can't get the levers in the water garden to come up, even though the cut scene showed them as up.

 

Can't see to find a work around anywhere on the interwebz, and I've only been using one save slot.  FML.  I don't really want to restart the whole fucking game again.

should said no vita cart games,, 

 

hell i would rather had  2 psp games this month then the  crappy  so called vita game they released this week

 

Wait, Sony is mailing us cart based games with PS+?

 

Last time I checked, Dokuro had a Japanese retail (cart) based release.

 

I would much rather have 2 Vita PSN games over pretty much anything for PSP (other than the Rockstar stuff they won't give away free anyway).

I've had the collection for almost a year and I've beat SotC 3 or 4 times but haven't ever played ICO. I guess I should. Without spoiling anything, are the two games related by the story? Just wondering based on how SotC went and when you look at the connecting places when selecting which game to play...
 
Anyways, thanks to Ceol_CAG. I forgot about that game being on sale and had 63 cents in my psn wallet. lol


The ending of SOTC ties into ICO. Having played SOTC first you should be able to pick up the link at the start of ICO.

I've passed on Battlefield 3 at $5 before, so I guess it's nice that I'm getting it for free.  I'll never play it though.

 

Looking at the list of the games on the PS Blog, my reactions were:

 

"Yuck"

"Damn, another PSP game"

"Meh, already got it for free on Vita"

"Damn, already own it."

"FUCK YEAH!"

 

Munch's Odyssee will make the whole month for me!  Been waiting for that game to get a price drop for quite a while.

 

Same exact reaction here, expect I already own JSR on PS3.  Was kinda disappointed until I saw Odd World.  Makes the whole month ok with me.

Oh God, please no...

 

This last one was underwhelming, and even III felt a little off to me.  The formula has been used, over-used and then used again into oblivion.

 

Unless they branch away from the main series with spin-offs and really change a lot to add something fresh(not tacked on MP) to the gameplay, I hope the series is done.  I've had enough of Kratos, and continuing the franchise is only wasting valuable Sony Santa Monica dev time that could be used for something much better.

 

I'm a huge GOW fan and I agree, I'd like to see a new IP from Santa Monic Studio instead of a 5th GOW.  

 

Unless they want to make a new GOW Vita game, then maybe I'd be cool with another one.
