VLR!! VLR!!

@lisatsunami

In the very VERY remote possibility that I give up plus, what is the workaround for purchasing IGC games (discounted games are already yours to keep).

I would think that I would have to notify psn to remove the game from my dl list. Is there an easier way?

Probably not have to do that, though, since I would opt to buy physical copy, since the price would most likely be cheaper.

I just pook up my vita today, unfortuanetly, I have no memory card. So, no games till then. And those are great sales you got the there! Cool free game too.

Any word on the US PSOne Classic release of Tekken 3 and Fear Effect 1 & 2 for the PSN/PSP/Vita? Japan has Tekken 3 and Europe has Fear Effect 1 & 2. Was wondering when we get ours?

+ boomstickbhg on June 24th, 2013 at 3:35 pm said:

Even though it only took a few hours to beat Zero’s Escape, and I’ll never have any reason to play it again, I would have to say it’s one of the best Vita games I’ve played and a great addition for anyone who hasn’t played it.

But for me, yet another nothing for me week/month/year.

At least this time the BBRC is getting a game that isn’t Bargain Bin yet.

I believe tons of PS+ US Subscribers are really interested on those titles! :)

Thank you!

I thought about buying a Vita last year, but I passed. After E3 I really got excited about it again and bought one shortly after. It’s probably the most satisfying purchase I’ve made in a while, and it’s just getting better. PSN+ is almost essential. It’s so worth it.

Loving my PS+! Just added another year after Mr. Tretton confirmed PS4 will be included! Can’t wait to see how that’s going to work and what will be offered. Secret Ponchos sounds fun. Anyway, I always enjoy this update and reading your responses whether I’m into that week’s games or not! Keep it up!

Please.. no more HYDROPHOBIA.. They gave it away free and have put it on sale what seems to be about 10 times since then.. I think anyone who actually wants it will already own it.

Let’s see some deals on Capcom Arcade Cabinet, and other classics.

+ boomstickbhg on June 24th, 2013 at 5:56 pm said:

@whoever asked.

I don’t want the BBRC/IGC at all, I want discounts, ps1/ps2 games, avatars, themes etc…

The only reason I kept plus after the IGC change is because all the restrictions on save file back ups, and the fact that ps3′s will die at some point, the Cloud Save feature keeps me on plus.

If I could just buy Cloud Save space, I wouldn’t need plus at all since I get nothing else from it (auto update is neat, but not necessary).

I would like to see games that are less than 2 years old in the IGC. I would like to see games that cost more than 10-20 dollars (or less) at most stores, since ALL WE GET IS A RENTAL. Wouldn’t mind less shooters and fighters, especially on the vita. I could go on and on but then I’ll start to get annoyed and insult psn plus staff which is not productive.

Btw. If what I just read about Drive Club not really being free at launch for ps4 is true… wow another epic sony lie.


137

+ boomstickbhg on June 24th, 2013 at 5:59 pm said:

Sorry if this is a double post.

OMG please don’t listen to whoever asked for Battlefield 3.

That game is under 15 dollars everywhere I look, and less if you buy used (and online pass doesn’t matter now)

No more super cheap shooters in the IGC please!!!!!

So jealous of all the lucky people that get to play VLR for the first time :/. That is the best game i have ever played in my life and that is saying something as i have played some amazing games. So glad that people finally get to play this hidden gem and appreciate its beauty.


139

+ boomstickbhg on June 24th, 2013 at 6:04 pm said:

Darn just read that we’ll be getting one ‘Indie” game per month for the ps4 on plus. I know there won’t be much for the first few months after launch but even so, I’d rather had discounts, themes, or (if they decide to do it) games from older systems on that Cloud service type thing they mentioned.

IGC is bad enough when we get 30-40% indie on ps3, doing more than that for ps4 seems like you’re trying to kill plus.

Which I guess is why it’s mandatory for online play on ps4.

Yes I support Indie Devs and I am glad they do what they do, but 95% of their games aren’t fun for me.


140

+ scorpionov4 on June 24th, 2013 at 6:10 pm said:

oh i am a bit confused about that too. will ps plus support for IGC on ps3 and vita end after ps4 comes out? i really hope not.


141

+ jgrizzle358 on June 24th, 2013 at 6:10 pm said:

@139 there’s nothing wrong with Indie games. Some of the games we’ve gotten (The Cave for example) have been AMAZING.

And Indie games in general are just as good as the big beefy triple AAA titles.

Heck, I’d play Journey over and over and over before I’d EVER touch a Call of Duty game.


142

+ boomstickbhg on June 24th, 2013 at 6:14 pm said:

@141

I agree that Indie Devs make some great games.

I agree that some of what they do really is amazing.

But I don’t enjoy most of those game anyway.

For example, I’ve tried a bunch of times and I pretty much hate Journey. I recognize how well made it is and such, but I play games for fun and it’s not fun for me.

Same with “most” indie games (for me)

But I don’t want to take away from the great things they can do, even if Indie games aren’t my kind of game.


143

+ lisatsunami on June 24th, 2013 at 6:26 pm said:

Boomstickbhg, even though I agree with most of what you said: I don’t get many games from the IGC, the cloud save is the best feature for me, most indie games are not my favorite because 95% of them are platformers and I hate that…I still will support Plus all the way. I was a day 1 adopter years ago when we got very little and there was no cloud save. When the PS4 comes out there will be what, 4 games? Why would you expect one of them to be free? That would bankrupt the system which I most assuredly do not want. The one indie per month free game is a very generous addition to Plus. I agree I would like to see some themes and avatars like back in the day. I’m sure discounts will continue.

@140, scorionov4, Plus will apply to all the consoles: PS3, PS4 and Vita. Jack Tretton said that and he said it will still be the same roughly $5 per month it is now.

@141 Yes, Journey is great but I can understand how the younger, FPS obsessed crowd would not think so. I like the very wide spectrum of choices available only on Playstation because I can love murdering thousands in TLOU (just kidding, sort of) and slowly floating nonviolently through the unique world of Journey.

I am really excited about Virtue’s Last Reward! I think I’ll be playing it for the next few weeks as much as I can.
Also I have a question about Plus.
I bought the Walking Dead from Telltale season pass when it was $19.99. But I had tried out the first two eps as a plus member a few months before that. I was looking at my dl list and saw that it says I never purchased ep 1. All 2-5 say purchased but just that one doesn’t. I don’t want to delete my game and try to re-download one day not to have it available. Any clue why this happened?
