Sony's PlayStation+ - It pays for itself. Updates and PSN Sales ...


Recommended Posts

I'd welcome it. Little Big Planet and indie stuff aside, platformers seem like something of a dead genre outside the realms of Nintendo these days (I'm looking forward to the Ratchet & Clank remaster though). It's quite encouraging to see retail PS+ titles kick off on PS4 with a third party game however. Hopefully we'll gradually see more crop up early in 2015.

Calling out your own trolling because it apparently wasn't savage enough for anyone online to give a shit about,... That's a first world problem! 

Heads up, everyone, the season pass for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is currently on sale on PSN for $4.49 (normally $29.99). You don't even have to have PS Plus in order to get the deal.

IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED.     Aw man, I just bought Knack two years ago for $7.99. I knew I should have waited.

Honestly, I don't think I'd describe Knack as a platformer.  There's an element of that, but jumping isn't really a part of Knack's DNA the way it is for Mario, Rayman, or even Ratchet and Clank.  It feels more like a 16-bit brawler in a lot of ways.

 

I was shocked by how much fun I had with Knack -- addictive enough that I played through the entire game in one day-long marathon -- although it really depends on how much of an affinity you have for fairly repetitive old-school brawlers.  It also helps if you've sunk time into the companion app beforehand.   I started off with a bunch of collectibles because of that.  It's not a great game, but I enjoyed Knack enough that I'd pick up a sequel at the right price.

The indie space is full of good 2D platformers these days. You're right though when it comes to 3D ones. There are not a whole lot of them being made right now.

I'd agree. It's much more in the realm of Crash Bandicoot for a new generation than strictly a platformer. There's as much focus on fighting as there is on jumping and on the hardest difficulty, it presents a great challenge.

 

I did not regret my purchase of it at launch. It has problems no doubt (he generic look is a big one) but there's great fun to be had. It's the very definition of the "middle" the industry has been missing for years.

Sound Shapes just came out with an Ultimate Edition that includes all of the DLC. It's mainly note packs, which is really secondary to the real meat of the game: the Campaign. And once you beat the Campaign..... Death Mode. Some really challenging and fun stages.

 

What felt like my 100th or so attempt at "Invaderoids":
