The weekend is upon us once again, and if you’re a PlayStation owner who’s looking for something to get in to, you’re in luck — there’s a brand new flash sale on a ton of great games over at the PSN store.
Check out the full list of discounts right here.
I picked up Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE today at Best Buy, but since I ordered it online it won’t be here until next Wednesday. I also snagged Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward on Vita through the above flash sale. It’s something I’ve always wanted to play, but never got around to. $7.50 seemed too good to pass up.
I’m really tempted by Soul Sacrifice: Delta on Vita as well, since it’s only $7.19, but I don’t think I’d get to it any time soon.
Lately I’ve been playing a lot of Persona 4 Golden on Vita. I loved the PS2 version, so I’m thrilled to revisit one of my absolute favorite RPGs of all time. Great characters, art style, combat system, social links, and story. Just a phenomenal game overall.
Outside of that I’m finally working my way through Heavy Rain on PS3. I rented it from GameFly, thinking it was the PS4 version, but it’s fine. My PS3 is still hooked up, after all. I’m really digging the story, but the gameplay… yeesh. These controls are awful.
I don’t even mind the quick-time events and heavy narrative focus, it’s just the way Quantic Dream made something as simple as navigation such a chore. You hold R2 to make your character walk forward, adjusting their direction with the left analog. The direction you choose is based purely on the direction your character is facing as well, so if they’re looking toward the screen and you want them to go left, you have to tilt the analog right instead.
I’m 3 hours in and still haven’t gotten used to it.
My girlfriend and I will probably do some WoW leveling. She has a triple-XP boost that lasts until the 29th, so I’ve been helping her level some alts. Might as well take advantage of it while it lasts, right?
What about you folks? What are you getting in to this weekend?
