Warhammer Quest looks interesting. I'll at least be keeping an eye on it.

It's a fun game on iOS, but it looks like this is a straight port without much added. Was really hoping they would beef it up for the PC. Highly recommended for an iPad game though.

I'll get Whoa, Dave if it does come for PS4 (I'd heard it's only for Vita this week, with PS4 later).

I'll be getting Woah Dave and Duke Nukem as part of PS+.  Warhammer Quest looks interesting, but $24 for the deluxe version seems rather steep, so I'll wait for a sale.

I'll grab Infamous: First Light. I'm on a self-imposed spending freeze until I can work through some of my extensive AAA backlog.

So, exactly how "stand alone" is First Light? Can someone who hasn't played the base game know what's going on?

It's a prequel to Infamous 3 and it doesn't require Infamous 3 to play it, so I would say that's pretty stand alone.

Well, except like many prequels, there are events that happen which are unknown until later in the original game.

Ah... wasn't aware of the prequel part for some reason. So actually better to play it first then, I assume, if given the choice.

Eh.  I'd say it's about the same either way.  There are some spoilers but certainly nothing that would ruin the story of ISS.  It's all background of some of the characters he meets.  As long as you don't play them back to back, I don't think order matters.  I'm not sure if they patched all the minor refinements from First Light into the base game or not.

The story in the Infamous games (caveat: I haven't played the second one) is pretty ham-fisted schlock with a hilariously inept morality system though, so it's not like you'd be missing much anyway. The gameplay is the important part here.

Didn't want to start a new topic just for this, but had to chuckle when I saw the subject of the email I received from "Playstation Store" today:

New this week: Most anticipated games of 2015 - The Witcher 3: Wild Hung, Battlefield Hardline, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and more!

Well, the Witcher always had a libertine attitude towards sex.  Why not go full porn title?

Made me wonder if Peter Dinklage had joined the cast.  nod
