Nice! Looking forward to checking out Malicious.

Quick question, though. May be obvious, since it isn’t listed under “Last Chance” but, are the Borderlands sales continuing? I still need to pick up the DLC, but, don’t have the extra $$$ for a couple more days.

I’m still stuck on Demon’s Souls. I may be late on these. : /

Question: It was mentioned that the last week in the Spring Fever Sales was a PSASBR Heritage sale features games from the heroes in the game. Will that include HD collections from them too?

Great deals on GTA for people who like the series.

I’m dying to see what The 30th All Stars sales brings us. As someone who has only played Golden Abyss in the Uncharted series I am hoping for some deep discounts on a 3 pack, also hoping for some MGS sales (revengance). I own all RE games save for Code Veronica so really between the sales for PSABR and Zombie Tycoon, the 30th can’t come soon enough.

Thanks for the update. Thanks for the GTA discounts, but since I have them all on disc already, I won’t be getting the digital versions unless they’re free.

Here are some games I’d love to see in the IGC:

God of War (any/all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
Grand Theft Auto (any/all games in the series)
Metal Gear Solid (any/all games in the series; digital version of MGS4)
Red Dead Redemption
Saints Row 3
Uncharted (any/all games in the series)

Actually like the discounts for the GTA IV Ultimate Edition. Used to have it till I gave the regular game to my son, then he sold it. =) Now I can download it and I’m sure he’ll play it again. He loves it.

Too busy with Guacamelle!

Finished the “Tree Tops” area and was quite proud of myself…currently on the disappearing platforms part. Old-schoolers will have their skills put to the test.

Dragon Fantasy Book 1 is awfully tempting though….

    oh man, yeah Guacamelee definitely tests the best gamer reflexes at some parts but they struck a great balance with it being challenging, but not frustrating.

Unless there is an unannounced sale for Spring Fever, nothing but Dragon book for me this week. I don’t like GTA, I would like to have seen you put random stuff on sale rather than a whole franchise.

I’ve been wanting to try out Malicious. Of course, now is the perfect opportunity. Also, I’m definitely jumping on Dragon Fantasy. However, I don’t think I’m going to pick up anything on the Grand Theft Auto sale, although I believe it is a great sale. I already have GTA III, IV Complete, and San Andreas (I’m also inevitably going to pick up V when it comes out). Those will keep me busy for a long time to come. I’m sure there will be plenty more in the Spring Fever Sale to spend my money on come next week and the week after.

    Always good to budget your purchases =) Dragon Fantasy looks like a lot of fun and definitely something new. Nothing wrong with passing on the GTA stuff, and you can definitely look forward to more discounts as Spring Fever rolls along. There’s still Thomas Was Alone, and then Zombie Tycoon II (and Zombie Tycoon II will be coming free for Plus members on Day 1, so even better!)

Only the Dragon Fantasy discount for me this week. Already have Malicious (and didn’t much care for it)(it’s basically Demon’s Souls, except only boss fights), and absolutely no interest in RockStar games. But hey, Dragon Fantasy!

I’m rather disappointed, not because I own Malicious already, but because Malicious is an extremely weak title. Not only is it not fun to play, but the gameplay gets stale about ten minutes in. It looks nice though.

does anyone get the feeling don’t buy dragon fantasy yet, we’ll have on the IGC next month or is it just me?

4/15/13 and still no $10 credit from buying PS+ for 49.99 last month :( I hope it’s there once the maintenance is done. But they said around 4/12/13. It’s getting to the point of “not” around 4/12/13. Just sayin’…..

Nice on the GTA sale. I already have all of these in one form or other, but I’m buying EfLC again, because the PC port runs so slow for me, and my system runs most games fine. May pick up Dragon Fantasy, too, depending on what else is on sale this week.

@31, if you notice, #28 isn’t a + account, so I don’t know why they’re even here. Troll, perhaps?

@35 My $20 discount arrived over the past weekend (Sat to be precise). Hope they didn’t screw you over a penny ;)

Still need to pick up Zombie HD from last week. Otherwise nothing for me this week.

Loving Guacamelee, finished my normal play through. Just a hard speed run left to go for the platinum.

Without doubt a great game, but as an old school gamer who cut his teeth on the classic platformers of the past, there are some positively evil sections. Those disappearing platforms almost killed me (and caused an untimely demise for a Vita….). Perhaps time has dulled my skills.
