  1. I’d go for a 7, but I’m not someone who gives 3s to fps on hard as many people seem to...
  2. Same here - 5-2 is the only one I’m missing. It seems like you can’t lose more than 50 health on that one. It’s... hard. There are a few other tricky ones, but the game is a lot of fun, and for $1, I wouldn’t stop myself from playing!
  3. Has it been confirmed that people in North America have also received the email? Nothing for me yet... I'll most definitely make good use of the codes (supporting indie devs too!) if anyone ends up not using theirs!
  4. Me: Waits until $10 game is on sale at $9 before getting it.

    Also Me: Gets $100 game soundtrack without blinking.

      Unfortunately, that seems to be the truth! :awesome: I swore I wouldn't preorder games and here I am seriously considering it.....

  5. The game's only got a few hundred players here (a shame, really, it's lots of fun!), but somehow there's 1.2M views on this youtube boss guide video. It looks like the guy's "all boss" videos all have over a million views... He doesn't seem to have that many subscribers either... Am I missing something?
  6. January 2020 predictions Far Cry 4 Celeste
  7. Couldn't find a lot of info on Canadian Black Friday sales, so thought to share here... I picked up: Starlink: Battle for Atlas Uncharted 4 Uncharted Lost Legacy ...for $10 each at Best Buy Canada. I haven't seen anything worthwhile elsewhere - though some might be interested in other Playstation Hits titles for $10.
  8. That's a great deal, but they charge a whopping $15 USD for shipping, and DQ11 is out of stock... Microplay also have a fairly large selection of AAA titles and others on sale - but nothing that struck me as an amazing deal.
  9. They inevitably make it so hard to find items on sale... It's kind of mind-boggling, really. But hey, one more reason to avoid buying from them. Thanks for the tip. Might pick up DQ11 for the kids... And it looks like we'll be two months in a row without a Flash Sale. Oh the times we live in.
  10. Not sure if this should be posted here or in the PC forum, but does anyone have any idea if a PS4 port is planned? Devolver's games often are, but I can't find any info on this one... Certainly looks gorgeous and would fit nicely in the PS4's artsy repertoire.
  11. I agree that the directions can get pretty confusing. I personally gave up on the walkthrough aspect of the guide, but am using the maps for the collectibles. (Nothing against the guide writer - the guide is useful in many other ways, and it must have taken a tremendous amount of time and dedication. I commend him/her for that!)
  12. Shu's a fun little platformer with mechanics that change from world to world. Its trophy list is mostly easy, but the no-death runs can get quite difficult on some levels. Mini guide: 1-At the beginning of each level, run left until you reach a dead-end. It's the requirement for Bryn's Corner, which will pop at the last level of the core game. 2-Play all levels while trying to get the 6 babbies, mural piece(s), and enough butterflies to get gold status (you don't need them all). The babbies are easy enough to find, but the murals are better hidden. A sound plays when you're nearby to help you find them. Also be on the lookout for tiny bits of wind: you'll often need to jump and glide through secret passages. I only had problems finding the mural in 6-5. (If you have the same issue, it's roughly mid-level: you can jump back left after hitting a checkpoint and boost through a wall. Don't break the boxes there, climb on them to reach the mural.) 3-Replay each level trying to "set" a time (you don't need to beat Goo Shu's time, just complete the level after touching the hourglass) and not die. The last level and most of those in World 6 are where you'll face a challenge as they're pretty long and as you're often chased by the storm, a single misstep can be fatal. 4-Completing all requirements for steps 2 and 3 together will grant you a medal for each level, in turn needed for a trophy. 5-The level-specific trophies are often linked with no-death runs, so you'll get those as well. Otherwise, look at the descriptions, they're all obvious (and easy). 7-You'll most likely get Whirlwind (beating the Goo Shu speed for one level) as you're going for no death runs. Otherwise, find a level you're comfortable and... get gud! You'll need to beat Goo's time on the last level of World 5 for a level-specific trophy, but I've read it only unlocks that one and not Whirlwind. I can't confirm as I already had it by the time I got there. That's it! Hope you had fun and that this helped a bit.
  13. I would not recommend the Hakuoki games, especially the second one. The streams are all completely separate, yet boringly similar. I fell asleep many times throughout... Monster Monpiece I really enjoyed, but it could have done without the creepy swiping thing...
  14. Wondering if Anthem is worth it at that price... Otherwise, Castle Crashers, Raiden V and Road Redemption are tempting, but I was really hoping for indie, digital-only titles, not the same old AAA that are going to be discounted everywhere.
  15. Guide: -Simply play both modes while getting three cube for each level. It's really easy and not worthy of a step-by-step guide. -Nothing is missable as levels can be replayed. Tip: -Buttons remain clicked if you die, but your time will reset. Use this to your advantage: click, die, complete. Review: -Last Standing mode is way too easy. For something similar but more challenging and just better done, play Tiles. -Get All Colors mode is either super easy, or frustrating if you don't get it right away. When the latter happened, I randomly moved a few times and ended up getting everything in a few minutes. -While the game didn't crash for me, it's buggy: target scores disappear if you die, and buttons you click remain clicked post-death, which can't have been on purpose. -It's short, cheap, and easy, but I would recommend any number of other puzzle games before this one (Linelight, Circuits, Expand, Tiles, Almost There, etc.).
  16. I would bring an Elixir from Final Fantasy. Then I'd keep it till end game - and hopefully never have to use it.
  17. I did that a few times last year (50 or so a day) and I got swiftly blocked from updating anything by this very site. If this goes forward, it will have to be with the admins' blessing or we'll just end up getting all our accounts frozen.
  18. I do the same, 5 a day, using a RNG. I even keep a table where I log in country, level, and last game played. Why? I don't know. I don't have OCD, but I find making pointless lists relaxing. (Also, I can confirm most haven't been updated in years - and quite a few are now private.) Random findings: -About a third of users are Americans, followed by Brits and Japanese at 8 and 7%. -There's roughly 11% of the accounts that are now private, and spikes around lvl 5 (10%) and 12 (8%) for reasons unknown. -Call of Duty and FIFA rule the day as series, Apex Legends and Grand Theft Auto V as individual games.
  19. They publish their own guides here, so they do know for sure. But hey, they have found their niche business model, and I'm assuming it's profitable enough that they can release ports at the rhythm they have been. I'm annoyed at the multiple stacks as well (forums should be shared!) but until Sony implements rules around this... I'm happy my Vita gets a steady supply of fun games?
  20. Honestly, I’ve stopped visiting the storefronts through the Vita, PS4, or the PSN app. Psprices is faster and you can flag games you already have or aren’t interested in so they don’t show up (which is very useful when you have a large library) You can also check if the games you’re interested in have ever been cheaper, and you can quickly see what games are always on sale (Effie!) and what games aren’t to control your impulse purchases. Its only problem is that it sometimes misses games (most of the Ratalaika Games come out with a discount that somehow never appears on psprices, for example), but it’s not frequent enough to be a deterrent.
  21. Fun I'll go with Celeste since it was on XBOX Gold and would be Christmas-y, and probably a Ubisoft game since it's been a while... 2 and 3 were freebies so... Far Cry 4?
  22. Fun! 2009-10: 0 2011: 2 (most common: Dynasty Warriors 7 - 12.09%, rarest: Katamari Forever - 5.43%) 2012: 1 (Final Fantasy XIII-2 - 21.26%) 2013: 0 2014: 2 (most common: LEGO The Lord of the Rings - 23.05%. rarest LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars - 15.39%) 2015: 9 (most common: Life is Strange - 36.21%, rarest: Dust: An Elysian Tail - 9.33%) 2016: 17 (most common: Hitman GO: Definitive Edition - 70.30%, rarest: Dragon Age: Inquisition - 6.70%) 2017: 56 (most common: My Name is Mayo - 97.86%, rarest: SteamWorld Heist - 2.53%) 2018: 106 (most common: Jack N' Jill DX - 99.28%, rarest: Army Corps of Hell - 4.65%) 2019: 119 to date (most common: Storm Boy - 98.54%, rarest: Night in the Woods - 4.52%) Highlights: -I started collecting trophies (and spending more money on games) in late 2016. -2017 was my MNIMY (My-Name-Is-Mayo-Year) and also when I bought a Vita, basically doubling my gaming productivity (and killing my book reading/phone gaming). -I bought a VR set in 2018, adding choices to an ever-expanding library. It's also my YODRG (Year-of-Discovering-Ratalaika-Games) - which I actually enjoy for the most part! -I'm getting more trophies than ever in 2019. I've thought about it, but I really can't say why it's happening. I still rarely game when the kids are around (which is most of the time), still work full-time... Mystery. -I currently have a backlog of 927 (!) games I have not completed. I have not earned a single trophy in 598 of those. I really wish we could lend our digital purchases... Sort of waste at the moment. But you know what? I'll buy more games this week. Conclusion: While being a completist is a disease (for everything that's grindy anyway - the time devoted to it really isn't justifiable), I'm proud to (almost) only ever play games I like, with a huge share of completed games that aren't Platinums to prove it, and also not to be a stacker! Shows I have principles!
  23. I enjoyed Dream Daddy a whole lot - great music and fun story line. One Way Trip is also interesting in a very strange way, and is one of only a handful of non-romance VNs out there. Punch Line is a slightly ecchi VN with some pretty funny bits. One Night Stand is very short but provides a more, erm, realistic take on romance? Three Fourths Home is also worth checking out. Its often on sale, is short, and also is more realistic... But yeah, can't go wrong with Danganronpa, Zero Escape and Steins;Gate!
  24. Road to Ballhalla is a super funny, fun, and challenging game that somehow only a handful of people played. Here's a mini-guide in case a lack of info is what's stopping people... First: Nothing is missable! Trophies are divided into: Progression trophies: Just... play the game. Token trophies: Get all yellow bits in every level AND don't die more than 5 times per level. Speed trophies: Beat the 3-star time in each level (where the challenge lies!) Random trophies: -Do Not Enter: Just... enter! (it's pretty funny) -Ball Hacks Required: There's a door that requires 999 tokens... but there's also a jump pad nearby. Use it to jump on the wall and roll into that slot. -The Final Secret: Find 10 codes in various levels (they will be represented as purple teleporters). They are REALLY hard to find, so I recommend using guides on Youtube. You also need to find all 10, you can't just use the completed code.
  25. Gabbuchi is a fun puzzler that can get quite challenging. Given the lack of guides, I only wanted to tell everyone that while you need to complete all levels in order to get the gold trophy, you do not need to get a full heart for any of them. Just play the game casually - it gets challenging enough without having to worry about filling your stomach or limiting the number of switches!
