@D_Bones: If you haven't got it Pac-Man Champion Edition DX is the game to get there, that and Renegade Ops.

Infamous was good but it's only about 2 hours long and doesn't have a platinum trophy. So unless you're a huge Infamous fan I'd pass on it since it's not all that special. Pac-Man DX is something everyone needs to own. It's go god damn good it's unreal.

Kind of disappointing. There is nothing there I want.

Nothing that I really want. Hopefully there is gonna more games on sale that they haven't revealed.

And for the OP, I would say that SOTC, Pac-Man CE DX and Renegade Ops are all great games.

Leaning towards Crysis, I never played it on PC so might as well try it

I'm probably just going to get Renegade Ops.

It's not the greatest lineup of games, but at least its something. Most of them are pretty solid games.

Wow I just realized I never should ask you guys to help suggest games. I also thought lineup was fairly mediocre but now am considering like five. Jerks lol

That's would require them to actually care about Vita.

European PSN had a Vita sale earlier. I was hoping we'd have one here soon, too..

I could definitely go for playing through Shadows of the Colossus in HD. I might check out Crysis as well, if the price is right.

#19 Posted by Addfwyn (1997 posts) -

Shadow of the Colossus HD for sure. Anything else worthwhile I already have.

If you don't have them, the Infamous DLC and Renegade Ops are good buys.

Does Crysis use the same control layout as Crysis 2 on consoles? If so I'll definitely pick that up.

Already got Renegade OPS through that free PSN+ promotion. I'd have to say House of the Dead. I've been on a lightgun binge lately.

I don't think I've ever bought a game during a PSN sale. Steam has spoiled me for sales. 30% discounts don't hold the same allure that they used to.

Neat-o! I should get Renegade Ops, and maybe Crysis. Maybe. And maybe something else, depending on the prices. I don't know how much a lot of that stuff costs normally.

The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection is $20 on Amazon right now. Anyone know how much SOTC is on PSN?

I finished Renegade Ops today, I'd say it's worth checking out, even better if you have someone to play multiplayer with.

Over on the Sony blog, they pretty much confirmed that Pacman Championship DX got pulled from this, because it's one of the freebies for PS+ next month. So pretty awesome, depending on whether you have Plus or not.
