#14188295 PSN Weekly Deals - 11/12: Double Discount Sale! $23.19 Romancing Sag...

Posted by Deuteros on 12 July 2019 - 06:02 PM

So I finally picked up Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit on sale after wanting to play it for YEARS, and now I find out that the U.S. version is fucking censored because apparently we're all a bunch of prudes (EU version is reportedly unaltered). God damn it all to hell, is it so much to ask to see some polygon boobage? :cry:


Also, I've read that the plat is difficult to get because the QTEs (especially on hard mode) are quite frustrating and it seems to be glitched for many people. So that's just peachy. Looks like it's a game I'll be playing just for the story (and watching the sex scenes on YouTube, like some sort of degenerate).

Indigo Prophecy* was censored in the US because of sexual content, while Beyond: Two Souls was censored in Europe because of violence.

I'll gladly choose sex over violence, though.

* Even the game's name Fahrenheit was changed to avoid 'controversy'.

Sorry, Wampler13 took it from my dumb human hands.

Thanks, in any case. If I manage to source the necessary amount of PSN credit before the end of tomorrow, I'll beg for a discount code in the PSN deals thread.


Sorry, dude! Went all stealth mode. 


And thanks again, bardockkun.

Buy something fun! :)


What do you mean about the tables being gutted? I have the first 3 maybe 4 seasons on Xbox because my wife loves to play this game.

Our longstanding licenses for the Williams and Bally pinball trademarks will finally come to an end on June 30th, 2018. Therefore, after this date tables from these manufacturers will no longer be offered for sale within the Pinball Arcade. However, customers who purchased any of these tables prior to the deadline will continue to own them and have access to them within the Pinball Arcade, and we will continue to support them as we do the other tables in our collection. This change will affect all of our devices and platforms.

So if you’ve ever been interested in owning these great tables, please purchase them now, before they disappear!

FarSight will continue to release new tables for the Pinball Arcade. We are excited to announce that Season 8 will launch later this summer and will feature all of the recent Stern tables in Stern Pinball Arcade along with several new tables.

We’d like to sincerely thank all of our customers and fans over the past decade. Your amazing support of our game has helped build the Pinball Arcade into the greatest pinball simulation of all time. Pinball forever!

A tragedy, really. And there has been official confirmation that the terms of their agreement prevent FarSight from having a sale.

360 games show no benefit on the One S, as we all know. OG games run by default at 4x the resolution.


KOTOR comparison (no X1X, just S footage):


Sorry but I'm still a bit unclear on this...


Xbox 360 games are only enhanced on the Xbox One X, and even then on a case-by-case basis (except for games with uncapped frame rates that might get a slight performance boost).


Will BC for original Xbox games be similar? Reading this, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is the only original Xbox game listed as enhanced on the Xbox One X (renders at 2560 x 1920 while the Xbox One S renders at 1280 x 960). Is that strictly due to brute force (as in the uncapped frame rate scenario) or was that game tweaked?


On an entirely different subject, using IIII instead of IV would only be acceptable if done in jest, which I'm confident Activision is incapable of.

I love my asian copy of Crackdown with a completely different cover by Monkey Punch (of Lupin III fame):

Ejectedbunny and Jimbo8574, thanks for the Gold code! I'll need it in order to take care of a soon to be unobtainable achievement in Saints Row IV.

At least it wasn't shoes.

gamegirlpocket doesn't wear shoes. It's a well known and photographically documented fact around these parts.

How do you explain trophies, then?

I think it's simply that Sony is afraid of scarying some of its userbase away if they change the design of the DualShock too much. At its most basic, it's still an iteration of the SNES controller.

I saw the trailers for Mother, but didn't realize for some reason it was an Aronofsky film. So yeah, now I get why everyone is saying it's completely nonsensical and yet critics are climbing over one another to say how brilliant it is.

You're thinking of David Lynch.

If nothing else it's amazing how the level of tension was kept so high the entire film. I found myself having to consciously relax my hands as I kept balling my fists.

Same here. I'd say it was because of the camera work. Lawrence is in close-up for 66 minutes of the film. When she isn't, it's shot from her P.O.V. or from over her shoulder.

So, games... Right!

The only game worthy of the 'walking simulator' moniker is Pilgrimage (Ohenro-San: Hosshin no Dojo) for the GameCube.

Odds of "XIII" going back compat? Discuss...and go!

Zero. XIII is unavailable digitally everywhere and was pulled from GOG at the end of 2012.
