ALERT....ALERT!

$4.99 & Under Flash Sale now live!




Some nice deals there. NFS Rivals is a great game for under $5. I will be grabbing PaRappa The Rapper as well.
Jackbox 3 is a total steal at that price.

I've heard the parappa the rapper remake has input lag problems... which is like death for a rhythm game. Look up reviews first. For instance:

Yeah I remember that. It was even worse than the PSP version.

There is also a demo up. So yeah, check it out first, the lag issues really killed the fun for me.

I think I'm going to pick up Octodad and Jackbox 3. So I look forward to them being the PS+ games for February

Thanks for the info but, eh, I've played the Free Demo of Parappa Remastered (which looks like it has been since removed from the PSN Store). I thought it played okay. My son loved it and has asked more than a couple of times for me to buy the game. I've told him I was waiting for a sale, so I will get it for him now.

BTW : I recently bought him the PS trifecta of Sackboy, Ratchet and Parappa plushies from Think Geek for his room.

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

Trying to see what’s in the flash sale, I click on it on my PS4 and just get a blue screen with nothing there so I pulled up the app on my phone and on there when I try to go to page 2 I get a screen with nothing on it. Way to go Sony.

PS store has always been kinda shit, but even worse than normal lately. Hey Sony, I'm ready to give you money... oh, I can't access the store... cool cool cool. I'll go do something else and save myself some money.

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

Goddamn, shit's still fucked up.

Went into PS Store, wouldn't load up. Backed out. Went back in, it finally loaded, went to search for something specific, after going into the search screen, nothing came up - I mean I couldn't even search as the line of letters to input into a search wouldn't come up. Tried to back out, couldn't, kept hitting the circle button - it just stayed in the search screen without any means to search. Had to shut down the PS4.

What a bunch of fucking shit!

Eh, they are doing you a favor. Wasn't all that thrilled with the choices, but I kept wavering on Tetris Unlimited. It was $3.75, I pulled the trigger. That's about what it is worth...

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

So there's a new sale on the playstation store today. While I was checking it out, I saw a 10% off code show up on the side of the screen in a vertical banner. It was weird, it says "use this for 10% off your total purchase" and it's 10 digit code ... but the banner automatically switches to another ad after a couple seconds, so it's tough to copy down!

Anyway, looks like a one time use code, not something I could post here. So keep an eye out for it. I saw the ad here:

Not sure if it is unique or a universal code, but this is what I saw:

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

Missed a few great games this weekend when I put them in my cart, got distracted, and forgot to pull the trigger. Looks like Jackbox 4 is at a decent price, I might go for it.

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

Anyone play Song of the Deep? It's $3.74 which is pretty good. I never heard much buzz about it. Can't be too bad for Insomniac?

Re: Official PSN Games Thread

Check your emails, Sony sent out a 20% coupon to some people. From what I've read the codes are unique. Valid through 2/12.

I actually got one! (I never usually get these things)
