I liked the PSP mini version. Don't know if I'd buy it again.

Posted by ChaoticRedder

Hmm...Now I have to see about getting a PSP

Dang

I bought a PSP GO, so maybe I should buy this to justify the purchase.

Looks so fun. :)

LOL, another crappy tiny-consoles game, instead of quicklooking many of the far superior by default PC games. 
 
Like for example, the far superior tower defense game, Defense Grid: The Awakening.
 
I'm disgusted, it's a total regression of the representation of the gaming industry.

You MONSTER.

This has been out in Europe at least as long as the PSP go. Odd its only seeing the light of day now in the US. 
 
Never mind I don't the the UMD made it out here.

And this would be why Giant Bomb doesn't do many PC Quick Looks: because most PC gamers are douchebags and don't go to Giant Bomb because they attend a bunch of PC supremacy websites.

Have this for the PS3 and it is pretty fun, can get tough though especially trying to get the archievements.

Defense Grid isn't that great, I had fun with it, but it's no better than any other TD game.

Was looking forward to 3d dot heroes but now kinda concerned about being able to finish it as I tend to consistently lose at tower defense/rts games.

For the record, Defense Grid is also on Xbox Live Arcade, so your argument is invalid.

The little bars indicate how close the towers are to finishing upgrading. You gotta stay in one spot and dance near the tower. It doesn't take that long. Not that any of this matter, after the fact. Game looks identical to the ps3 version. Don't know if I'd pay 10 bucks for it, though.

Just a related heads up that all the PS3 (not PSP) Pixeljunk games are on sale right now for $5 each as part of their Spring Fever sale.  (I think that the sale is good through the end of Monday.  I'm liking Shooter so far.  I don't  like Eden, and I'm still up in the air about Monsters.  (I didn't buy Racer.)

Posted by Freaksaus

The little red bars by the towers are indeed experience bars. They get experience by killing monsters or when you dance while standing near the tower. The game starts out easy but the later levels get pretty crazy, especially if you try to rainbow(perfect) them.

Has GB ever been a PC focused site? I don't think so. So, go back and play your "superior" PC games instead of trolling the comments of a PSP video.

Booooom! BOOOOOOOM!

Posted by BenderUnit22

You'd think everyone would've figured out the tactic of putting your towers in a U-turn for maximum efficiency.

Posted by Meltac

Looks pretty boring, but I've been the biggest fan of these kind of games.

Posted by Gibbs_Acolyte

awesome

Posted by Tebbit

I felt like hanging myself when rather than "dancing" the green tower up to yellow for free, when it's upgrade bar was almost completely full, Brad wasted a gem on it. 
 
Maybe I played to much Pixel Junk Monsters...

Posted by swamplord666

haha having played my fair share of the PS3 version, I was getting a little annoyed at brads relative inexperience :P things like dancing to upgrade, getting rid of the arrows for the boss, etc.  
But yeah, someone new to the game wouldn't know that so it's all good :)

Posted by napalmtrees

Quit feeding the troll... I mean Zol.

Posted by swamplord666
@Tebbit: haha I know what you mean! For me I kept thinking "CONTINUE DANCING ON THAT TOWER" when he kept moving between waves instead of upgrading.

This was Zol's first post: 
"I can't believe these dumbasses play such games on inferior xbox 360.
And when they do play on PC, for example Call of Pripyat, the play on lowered graphical settings and then talk about how the game looks outdated.
 
Sometimes I'm really disgusted by these unprofessional incompetent idiots. " ............yeah.
PS: he's been on the site for FIVE days!

Posted by MJHAYLETT

if the PixelJunk games had been on XBLA I guarantee that all of Giant Bomb would have played all of them. Just Saying.

Edited by bitcloud

If you're going to only get one, get the PS3 version.

Yeah and most console gamers are mentally retarded frat boys. Stop being an idiot and generalizing..

Zol is obviously trolling.

Edited by Skrams

Not trying to hate on Brad but I cringe when he wastes gems to upgrade instead of dancing for maybe 2 more seconds for a free upgrade. 
Also I hope he didn't play that far into the PS3 version w/o knowing you could buy new  towers with gems. 
But ya, $10, why pass this up?

Posted by NickLott

Brad didn't die, but he let his villagers die. 

Posted by RobotHamster

I just bought pixeljunk monsters on psn for $5, great deal!

I'm a PC gamer. I only say it because almost every other PC gamer I've encountered is a hardcore elitist snob. There's a reason the stereotype exists.
Posted by Scarabus

Name that game = Borderlands. 
So obvious but it took me a while to remember.

Edited by RoadCrewWorker

As someone who has played over 30 hours of Defense Grid this doesn't impress me too much with its lack of path shaping, juggling or tower variety.

Then again this is Brad playing here, so it might just be a bad representation of the more challenging gameplay. Also the gameplay mechanic details are obviously different enough to bring it down to a matter of taste and personal preference - regardless of platform. (What the fuck is wrong with people here getting into kindergarden slapfights about retarded concepts of 'superiority'? Way to give all gamers a bad reputation!)

I think the stereotype we're talking about is "gamers".
Posted by MomentDEFINED

as a pretty big Pixel Junk Monsters fan, it was painful to watch Brad not dancing on towers! You can use gems to instantly jump to the next level, but a KEY part of PJM is dancing on towers to gain experience on them when they aren't killing monsters. It takes an interesting balance between having to level up towers and build new ones. Great game through and through.

Posted by Korne

Man... these guys are terrible! I guess Brad completely forgot how most of the game works... like dancing, it levels up the towers! And save the crystals to unlock new towers (like the flamethrower, the best tower in the game).  
 
Oh well... still one of the best download multiplayer games I have played... especially if you have a girlfriend who doesn't play many games.

Posted by gla55jAw

Brad you can upgrade towers by just standing next to them!

Posted by MomentDEFINED

also, for anyone curious about how you unlock the other tower types, you have to go and open the menu on your "home base" of sorts. Then you can use the gems to unlock towers like the flamethrower and tesla towers - these elemental towers become ESSENTIAL later on when you get shielded enemies that are resistant to physical damage and vice-versa

Posted by ch3burashka

I both love and hate tower defense games. They're a great time sink with a sense of progress, but whenever I'm required to cash in old towers for new ones, I'm fucked. I simply cannot justify taking down towers for new ones.

Posted by MomentDEFINED
@RoadCrewWorker: 
 
The original game was released nearly a full year before Defense Grid According to wikipedia.

Wow, I've illegally had this on my PSP for a LONG time, I didn't realize it wasn't even out in the US yet. (I'm not bragging about being an asshole pirate, I just really didn't know.)

Go fuck yourself.

I liked the True Lies reference in there.
 
Edit: Seriously didn't expect to see this much hate on a pixel junk quicklook. What's the deal?
