Do I need to play Uncharted 3 before I play Uncharted 4? Ive only played the first two but never got to the third one in my short time with my ps3. 

Like any game in a series, you'll enjoy the story, references and especially any depth of character that might be there if you've experienced the other games, but you'll really be fine if you play UC4 standalone.

Kind of hard to understand people paying for digital guides.  I completely understand physical guides for the intrinsic value of having an owning a physical book, but the internet at large is my digital guide and serves me pretty well.  It's hard to imagine a paid digital guide being much better than the numerous sites that offer free info.

Can someone explain the star rating of games on PSN's website?  Looking at Black Ops Declassified for Vita and wondering if 4 stars means almost incredible or just well above average.

Please say that is a Halo sword.

Is it the inflatable one that guy was looking for awhile back?  Better start a thread to let him know...

In unrelated news, there's a rumor that Evolve will go f2p tomorrow.

Oh great.  I hope early adopters like me don't get screwed out of the $10 price we paid a few weeks after release.

Now that RockStar is on board with BC, I do hope this means GTA IV comes eventually. LA Noire, too.

That would be nice, but i'm more hopeful RDR BC is related to a Red Dead new game announcement in the near future.  Can't hurt to have a little good buzz going about the franchise right before you drop a big reveal...

Posted by WNYX585AM on 05 July 2016 - 07:02 PM

In my cart right now I have:

 

Adventures of Pip

God of War III Remastered 

Starwhal

 

 

Then I have sitting in my wishlist debating:

 

the Castle Game

Trivial Pursuit Live!

Armello

 

 

Thoughts/ opinions on any of those six games?

I got The Castle Game during a flash sale a month or two ago for about the same price.  I've been very pleased with it.  The game is a fairly generic tower defense game as the generic name implies, but there are enough variations on weapons, upgrades, etc. to keep it interesting long enough to get your money's worth.  If you enjoy tower defense games, i'd definitely recommend it at this price.

 

Also, I have Trivia Pursuit Live on Xbox One and it's a pretty fun family game.  It's one of the few that's clean enough to play in mixed company, etc.  I was surprised that they were able to make it fairly interesting and entertaining considering my memories of Trivial Pursuit as a kid are pretty bland.

 

Starwhal's a lot of fun but gets old fast.  The gimmick just gets tired, but it's worth a few bucks if you can play in a group and goof around.

I wonder how many people have just purchased Saints Row or ignorantly will in the next couple days.  At least it's only $6 but that seems like poor planning on Sony's part.

Thanks for the tip.

So if my gift cards expired 7/1, I cancel my preorder on 7/15, the gift card will be valid for a new preorder within a day or two of me canceling?

It's been awhile, but my experience was that once I canceled my pre-order, the balance returned to my expired gift cards within a few days.  I was concerned about losing the funds, so I bought something else as soon as possible.  I don't recall issues using the expired gift cards, but I likely used chat or the phone to place the order at that time, so i'm assuming they may have had to do something on their end to override the expiration date.  I recall it being simpler than I expected.

 

I don't recommend someone planning on this method and I don't make any guarantees that it will work, so I recommend verifying with Dell how the refund for the GC will be handled before you cancel an order.  I do recall others report similar experiences as mine, though.

Backwards compatibility is really making me regret choosing PS3 as my primary console last gen.  I'd so love to see all those Xbox 360 titles on my Xbox One dashboard...and still not play them, of course.

Wow.  That says a lot about how this game is doing.  Reminds me a lot of Evolve's trajectory.

How is there not one comment on that image?

I can't take my eyes off that wired controller.  Completely unrealistic portrayal of modern gaming, but this is what you see pushed on the public at large and especially the youth in America in all the magazines, commercials, etc.  Is this what we want our children to think real gaming is?

I was going to "like" the OP for the deals listed, but the picture negated that "like."

Nice, you included and extra paragraph just to insult the people here. I like your style
