Finished all the dungeons in Lorule... now it's off to the castle. I believe I have everything except for 4 heart pieces which I haven't felt like getting yet due to having to play mini-games to get them.

This game is pretty cool... it is really a game in the world of ALTTP, not simply a remake of it.

I actually don't know if the one for Vita on PSN now in PS+ is free for the PS3 version also or just Vita. I bought this game months ago and am now starting to play it.

LIMBO was indeed very short, but I really liked it a lot. The only ding against the game is that there are some traps where it's almost impossible to figure out what to do without dying a few times first. Due to the game's dreary black-and-white shadow graphics, you simply can't tell that something is a trap trigger until you step on it. In addition, the ending of the game is ambiguous and open to quite a bit of philosophical debate, so if you are looking for a clear happy ending you should look elsewhere. Still, it's totally worth playing.

Shyster, I'm interested in what you think of Darksiders once you start playing.

I played a bit of Darksiders. It wasn't bad, but I never ended up finishing it for some reason.

I've read that the end is somewhat disappointing, but I find that my standards are lower than most. Also downloading Darksiders, The Cave, and something else from PS+. So worth the $50.


I stopped playing that randomly. Just ordered LA Noire and Batman Arkham City for a total of $34. Pretty happy about that. Played none of LA Noire and just played the Demo of Arkham City. Good times to be had.


Ok i lied, but it was still very cheap 6 months ago. scared

Really. I'd happily play the game again just to completely annihilate baddies like War can with his giant sword and that awesome scythe he has. Once you upgrade the stuff, it's mayhem. Game has one of the best combat systems I ever tried and the story's good too.

I'm really not sure, but for $8 I figured I'd give a shot down the road when I'm down with Zelda, Mario and Rayman

Speaking of The Cave. Either this game is really hard or I'm an idiot. I totally don't know what I'm doing and am getting stuck on early puzzles. Like the first or second one. Once I looked up a hint, shortly after got stuck on another one. Less than 5 puzzles in, I tossed the game in my maybe-play-again-sometime-in-the-next year-or-so-or-maybe-never-cuz-I-really-don't-give-a-duck section.

No. Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, then Arkham Origins.

Arkham Asylum, imo, is the greatest superhero game ever made. Arkham City was a great game, but I prefer Asylum.

The pacing to Arkham Asylum was better, and that's what gives it an edge over City.

Just finished a Link between Worlds. Great game. Easily the best handheld Zelda game since the Oracle series on GB Color... Quite possibly the best HH Zelda period.

I need to replay the Oracle games because it's been at least 10 years since I played them.

I'm sure I would see the game in a whole new light since I'm older and pay more attention to the story.
