Joining in with Cosmic Star Heroine is awesome.

Buy it if you don't have it and like these types of games.

Whaaaat? Well thanks for the heads up lmao. No, no, no...no.

And SOMA looks scary as shit so I'm going to pass on that. Will likely pick up Cosmic Star Heroine and call it a day.
It's not as unforgiving as DS if that's the reason you are skeptical.

Can anyone tell me if The Witness did anything to address the motion sickness from release?

It was unplayable for me. After a few minutes, I had to lie down because I felt horrible. Had to request a refund.

Nice, Salt and Sanctuary works on the PSTV. I still use mine quite a bit when I travel, it's a great little box for hooking up to hotel TVs, always good to have another game for it.

These summer sales need to stop. My PS backlog is getting ridiculous.

I think I'll pick up The Witness and Garou. Definitely been meaning to play the former and in the mood for some environmental puzzling.

Anything even remotely in that vein isn't for me. Don't have patience. Not a knock at the game though as I love its style.

Have you played The Unfinished Swan? That's the only game that ever completely laid me out lol. If it's anywhere as bad as that looks like I'll have to skip it.

LA Cops is not a bad little Hotline Miami clone with levelling up and skill points, I had fun with it when it released and got the platinum trophy quite easily.

I'm gonna buy Dear Esther and preorder Superhot VR I think.

Then I'm gonna start playing games that aren't Crash Bandicoot for a while. I think.

Ouch, my wallet. Picking up Talos, 100ft Robot Golf, and CSH. Sony has become Steam.

Witness, SOMA, Inside/Limbo, Darkest Dungeon, Galak-Z, and Salt and Sanctuary are all highly recommended, but I already have them.

I'm going to grab Cosmic Star Heroine for sure, I've been wanting to play that for a while but kept telling myself to get through more of my backlog first.

Now I just need to decide about Snake Pass, NBA Playgrounds, and Skull Girls.

FYI-

Salt and Sanctuary is cross-buy, but it isn't cross-save.

Very annoying.

Did we play the same game? While yes, it is 2D Dark Souls, it's also VERY Metroidvania.

What I was thinking...Dark Souls is a metroidvania.
Is Salt & Sanctuary a metroidvania and similar to Dark Souls? I still am on the edge about it. Skeptical since the dishwasher dude made it. Is this his best game so far??

What's the word on Late Shift?

Was it fun or interesting? I get that it's more of an interactive movie, but was it executed well?

Hell, $7.49 is about what an iTunes rental costs...worth it?

Tons of good stuff already recommended (Salt, Talos, Inside), but I also recommend Klaus if you're a fan of platformers. Interesting style and has some unique mechanics. I picked it up during a sale last year and really enjoyed it. A steal at $3.99

YES! buy it. We need more interactive content like this on consoles. It's the first game since Her Story that my g/f and I have been able to play together in this way. So, her, as a non-gamer, and me...not being a non-gamer, but enjoyed it immensely. The story isn't the greatest thing ever, but it's still better than 90% of video game stories, and the choices just add more gravity to the situation.

I don't know that I'd call Dark Souls a metroidvania since there's generally no reason to ever go back to areas you've cleared, but Salt is a true metroidvania. There's a huge interconnected world with incentive to go back after acquiring new abilities. The Castlevania influence in map design and combat is strong, but sometimes it's hard to tell how much of that is intentional or just a side effect of making Dark Souls in 2D space.

Salt and Sanctuary is cross-buy but it is NOT cross-save. Which kind of defeats the purpose unless you want to go through it twice.

Really? Why are so many games coming out like this? Same game on both consoles, no cross save. Completely defeats the purpose of wanting/buying/playing both. I've been play Ys on Vita and went looking but can't find a cross save so might as well delete from the PS4.

Bought:

  • Absolute Drift
  • Dear Esther
  • GNOG
  • KLAUS
  • Late Shift
  • Snake Pass
  • Wayward Sky

That should do for the stylish and story games.

I only got Salt & Sanctuary, think it's the first time I've seen it on sale. I could have bought like 5 other games but my backlog is long and I've been getting burned a lot lately buying games that end up on PS+ before I get to playing them.

What. No. Salt and Sanctuary is definitely Metroidvania.

It's essentially 2D Dark Souls, yes, but guess what kind of genre an officially made 2D Dark Souls game would resemble... Yeah.

It's literally a Metroidvania with Souls inspired combat and mechanics, and it's glorious. It even has unlockable abilities that help you progress further in the game, which is definitely a Metroidvania thing.

I really want to buy Darkest Dungeon but I hate rougelike games. Any opinions?

Otherwise picked up Salt&Sanctuary and Cosmic Star Heroine. Otherwise I own everything else I might want.

Seems like PSN may be moving to bi-weekly sales since this sale lasts for 2 weeks.

Plus it says "Round 1" and not "Week 1" on the banner.

Wow. This is one of the best sales in recent memory. Added over a dozen games to my wishlist for purchase consideration.

I keep running up against an increasingly lower wishlist limit because apparently I had some games on my wishlist that were pulled from the store yet despite them not showing on my wishlist they still count towards that stupid limit >_<
