just got done with Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart, still have Mass Effect Legendary, and have Mario Golf on the way, really happy with gamefly. It seems like there are less people using it though, as new releases seem to always have high availability. also, gift certificates are back!
Gamefly got sold to a new owner a little less than a year ago. Since then they introduced things like Gamelock and the new Elite plans. I was happy with GF before the transition, but these days it's probably the best service it's ever been. Even shipping seems to take so much faster these days. I actually think there are a lot more people using it right now, as they sent out an email a while back welcoming all the new members that signed up during the whole lockdown thing. Anecdotally, a lot of my friends decided to finally sign up recently, and I'm seeing so much more random people talking about it online. It's a great deal- people should really take advantage of it while consoles with disc drives are still a thing.

I own both but have only played PictoQuest so far. It's fine. I was expecting more rpg elements, but really the levels are just placed on a very linear world map, and there are harder levels here and there that are "boss fights," and that's about it. You are apparently fighting monsters in each puzzle and they have health bars and whatnot, but all that really just acts as a level timer. They attack you if you mistakes, but the game is pretty easy compared to other picross games so it doesn't add much to the experience. I don't even remember if there was a story. If there was, it was so uninteresting that I completely forgot about it. But the actual picross gameplay is solid. I liked how short it was- you're not looking at like 100s of puzzles to solve like in other picross games. Though that can be a negative for a lot of people.
I do love picross.
Related, can anyone speak to the quality of these two Picross-RPG mash ups that are currently on sale as the Indie Gems Monograms edition bundle for the lowest price ever?
Seems you get Piczle Cross Adventure and PictoQuest for $10.

People are disappointed by Nintendo's upcoming games? We got a deeper look at Mario Golf, new 2D Metroid, SMT V release day, new Warioware, and a BOTW 2 teaser with a 2022 date. Other than BOTW 2 everything is coming out in the next 6 months.
You have to admit, these are a very niche collection of games. Not so much BotW2, but that's not out this year. What is Nintendo's big mainstream holiday release? I didn't see it in that Direct. Not that I care- what they showed was right up my alley, personally. Advance Wars remakes.. almost too good to be true.

Posting in case anyone is considering the RE 4, 5 and 6 bundle in the double discount sale.
RE6 isn't bad because it's too action and not enough horror like a lot of people say. It's bad because it's an awful game with horrible mechanics that are a total departure from anything resembling any of the other RE games. In fact, I have never seen any other games that are as shitty as it is. There's no innovation to speak of despite the fact that they're trying something new, it's just pure, unenjoyable trash from front to back with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
I thought RE6 was overall abysmal and Capcom should be permanently embarrassed for ever ever releasing it ... But it has a handful of redeeming qualities. The Ada campaign is decent, and it's seperate enough from the other campaigns that you can play it by itself and ignore the other stuff. The couch co-op is mindless fun, especially when playing with someone who may not be so great at shooters. If you are one of the weirdos who plays RE for the story and characters (like me), then there is a lot to keep you interested in the other campaigns too- like nearly every major RE character showing up, Chris & Leon finally meeting and Wesker's son being a thing for some reason. It's a B-movie plot, yeah, but that's always been part of the series' appeal. Unfortunately the gameplay itself is just so so bad.

Which PS3 RPG's on there are you looking at? Just curious to hear what games are on the service that you're looking forward to playing.
Been kicking around PS Now for a while and just looking for some reasons to hold off or pull the trigger.
There are some decent co-op rpgs on there. Darksiders Genesis, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, Titan Quest, etc. Alongside other good local co-op games of different genres. I basically just use psnow whenever my partner wants to play something together, and we go through the catalog and pick something.
Surprisingly thin selection of Japanese rpgs though, if that's what you're after. A few ps2 ports, some ps3 c-tier jrpgs to stream, and a couple Kemco shovelware. That's about it.

In my experience, those that talk bad about California have either never been here or are just angry with how expensive it is so it's a defense mechanism. I know very very little about politics but you can play PlayStation games no problem here😁
About 200,000 people move out of California per year. That's the equivalent of losing the entire population of a decent-sized town every year. And they all seem to move here to Colorado, driving up rent and home prices, and then continue voting for the exact same kind of scumbag politicians that caused them to flee their old state like refugees. I guess I am just tired of seeing hybrids with California plates drive by every minute here. They don't even bother getting new plates when they move here lol. Sorry for derailing the thread, I wasn't going to say anything else, just irked by this comment in particular. I have no desire to revisit California and don't care about how expensive it is, but just want you all to stop migrating here in mass numbers if California is so wonderful. Also, it would be nice if your state's massive inept government bureaucracies filled with unqualified cronies could get a handle on those wildfires that keep ruining our air quality over here every summer, that would just be wonderful, thanks.

Most libraries were closed until recently so there's also that.
My library never closed and was immediately deemed an essential service (which libraries quite plainly are). They did curbside service for a few weeks at the beginning of the pandemic, and then went back to normal. Not everyone lives in some nutty place like California where the governor can unilaterally decide to shut everything down while he dines out maskless with lobbyists.

7th Dragon III Code VfD is a great little hidden gem of a rpg. Extremely fun battle system and a decent story, as far as jrpgs go. It's basically a highly customizable dungeon crawler, so if you like stuff like etrian odyssey you will like it alot. Used physical copies seem to have gone up in price these days, so that digital price is not half bad.
I need to decide between a few Sega/Atlus 3DS downloads that are on sale.
I have $20 in eShop, and I'm trying to decide between the following 3DS games.
Sonic Transformed Racing - $9.99
Stella Glow - $9.99
7th Dragon III Code VfD - $14.99
I know that these all have physical copies that might be found for less in the wild, but 3DS games have dried up here locally.
Thank you for any constructive suggestions.
