I'm not looking to buy more games at the moment, but do you guys have any suggestions?

P.S. - I would have purchased Dark Souls if it wasn't for the fact that it's $60 I don't want to spend on one single game right now. :3

I'd say pick up Valkyria Chronicles if you can. It's a great exclusive and one of my favorite PS3 games of all time. That and Little Big Planet 2 (not sure how much LBP2 is right now but you should check it out sooner or later.)

Of course, if you're gonna pick up Dark Souls sooner or later whenever you get the money I recommend that you also pick up Demon's Souls just to compare the two! Also practicing at Demon's Souls makes Dark Souls seem so easier than it actually is (still damn hard) and it's also one amazing game.

Killzone/Resistance and where's that Uncharted love?

Dude, Uncharted 2 is dirt cheap these days - one of my favourite games this gen. Also, if you're too broke for Dark Souls, get Demon's Souls. Even with the servers being offline, it's still great.

Also, Killzone 2 is still pretty as hell and worth a look for the $10 it'll cost you.

They don't shut down the Demon's Souls servers until next year! Also yeah Uncharted 2, that's another one I recommend.

@FluffyZombeh: Really? I thought they'd gone already! Great news then.

Also, this is just a personal thing but, I HATED the Resistance series. Big fan of Insomniac in the PS2 days but I feel they haven't evolved at all compared to their peers (i.e. Naughty Dog). Ratchet has barely changed and, as for their first foray into the FPS genre, I think Killzone destroys Resistance from agameplay/level design and graphical perspective. Really not a fan. I always liked it conceptually but hated the feel and look of the first two games in the series a great deal.

Demon's Souls is deffo worth a look. I imagine it'll be going pretty cheap now.

Nice, All of those games are great. From what others are saying, Demon's souls is a must have if you are thinking of dark souls in the future as that game is Dirt cheap and will help you in learning how to play. Also Uncharted 2 is the shit, and is cheap also :D. I would say to look for some Yakuza games as 3 is pretty cheap brand new and 4 is fun as hell.

Thanks for the replies guys. :)

I'm not too into the Uncharted games (lol blashphemy, right?) because I played some of the second one at a cousin's a few times and it never stuck with me. Also most FPS are only fun for me when they're about the competitive multiplayer, so I dunno about Resistance or Killzone.

Just looked at a Youtube video of Valkyria Chronicles and it reminds me of Advance Wars on the GBA a bit. Definitely going to look into that more when money allows it.

It's more like I ran out of money that I allocated to buy this stuff. :P Still need to have money for school, gas, random expenses. ;)

EDIT: Even though a few of you are saying I should pick up Demon's Souls before Dark Souls, I probably won't do that when I go to buy it. :S I don't see my attention span holding through the first game and onto the second for that long, and I think I want the fresh start with the, probably, more polished game of Dark Souls.

Sup, den? :3
