I saw Dark of the Moon.

I've spent more than $15 for a 2-4 hour experience. I regret that.

This? I've not taken the bait ... yet. Loved flOw and flower.

I have not finished it yet, despite it being rather short. I think I'm going to start fresh on it this week and play through it all in one sitting. I've heard that's a good way to do it..

I absolutely love this show, don't get me wrong. But what a dumb and irritating idea. Supposedly there will be half of the season starting in July, and then after waiting until NEXT year, the season and series will continue and finish. Why make us wait?!?

Actually it -is- the developers job to "force" you to play a certain way. If I buy soccer and want it to be more like tennis, I purchased the wrong game. I definatly see both sides of this argument. That being said, after reading any reviews you should know what you are getting into. Noone is pissed that in world of Warcraft you are " forced" into a multiplayer engagement. That's what the game is! Same goes for battlefield 1943 ( or really any of them). Journey was * intended* to be played with someone. The experience is supposed to be that way. I didn't buy a Suburu and then complain that it couldn't do 2 wheel drive. The fucker is AWD! As advertised!

Some of you seem to be putting words into the mouths of the developers. Here's a snippet from the "About the game" section of the Journey homepage:

Quote from: thatgamecompany
Travel and explore this ancient, mysterious world alone, or with a stranger you meet along the way.

Note the highlight. The game's description, from the developers themselves, indicates that you have a choice in the matter. You don't. I call that misleading, and it certainly doesn't jibe with what you guys are saying. Games like Dark Souls are also online singleplayer experiences, but there you always have a choice in whether or not you want other players to interfere with your own experience. I shouldn't have to read reviews to figure this out (I had in fact at least watched a video review, which made no mention of the fact that you may end up stuck with a player against your will, so even reviews are no guarantee that you'll be informed).

In short, I feel as if I ended up playing a different game than what I was told it would be, and it definitely soured the experience for me.

I guess I never have seen that quote. I see your point there. No matter how you cut it, we all Deserve our own opinions to be respected... Even though I'm right;).

I hate to say it, but if you're trying to force people to quit and play it solo, you're playing it wrong and the devs have said as much.

Well that's a pretty damn big problem with their game design then. If people who want to play it solo end up sabotaging the multiplayer experience of those who want to play MP in order to be alone, then none of those two parties benefit. Why couldn't they just have an option called "Solitary Journey" or something in that style? It's not a game developer's job to force players to appreciate a certain type of experience. For games where the experience itself is the central motif, I'd like to appreciate it on my own terms without having a total stranger bouncing around on my screen trying to get my attention. Is that really so much to ask for?

Also, I guess the value of a game is and should be based on different things decided by each individual. Sometimes a short game like journey is worth 15, sometimes not. Sometimes a 60 game like dues ex human revolution is worth it at its 30 hrs range, sometimes not. That's opinion. Really. I
Don't sit next to someone in a restaurant and tell them that ribeye wasn't worth it, but my chicken is great value. Ding, ding, ding... Opinion!

I would argue the point of this game is to experience it with a random person and not play it solo.  It's an amazing experience when playing it with others because it allows you to experience the game together without the stuff that would normally be off putting about multi with the ability to directly communicate. For instance, going through the game with one person up until the end and then losing them somehow. Or, having a great experience e with someone and seeing their name at the end being TapDatAzzzzz69 and realizing that you had a great experience with someone that you would have prejudged.

I hate to say it, but if you're trying to force people to quit and play it solo, you're playing it wrong and the devs have said as much.


I agree with above. It's very interesting to play mp in this fashion. The developers wanted it this way. Going through a "Trippy" atmosphere with a stranger. That being said, sign off psn. Done deal.

Awesome. Probably won't be on much in the next few days. Maybe Saturday though. Usually Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday I'm down for gaming. New schedule is better for alot, just not gaming... It very well might change again due to my " boss" being new and a complete fuckup...

Hrm, 2012 Impreza does have good MPG, it would seem... old ones seemed to be the same as Forester/Outback, but the 2012 is saying 36 highway.

Subaru is apparently offering 0.9% through tomorrow.  I had identified a potential Forester, but maybe the Impreza is worth a drive.

I love my car, but man the newer impressa is a beautiful looking machine...

It seems like most things that are a decent size, especially wagons/hatchbacks, are all under 30mpg... I keep coming back to Subaru... later model Outback would be so nice for everything other than the mpg... but even looking at FWD cars in a similar price range (Nissan, Chevy, Ford), they are all in that same 27mpg sort of range...

I get 24 or so only on traffic. But 32 or so on freeway. My wife's legacy gets slightly better mpg and she is all freeway, where as I'm all traffic. But I can't complain. I drive 7 miles to work, she drives 28... I've had this car for 17 months and I only have 9,000 miles. She got her car over a year later and is close to passing me up..

I didn't know it even had games, let alone free ones. The ones I'd seen when I first tried Home out were games you had to pay to play and I didn't know how many of them were really games. This looks pretty decent. Might have to check it out again.

I was surprised by that as well. Hell, they really don't seem to tell us about this kind of shit. As if they don't want us to know. Conspiracy...

Haven't turned mine on in a few weeks now, and am seriously considering trying to sell it before any price drops.  I can always re-buy one later if some games I'm interested in actually come out.

Didn't even take it on my week-long road trip last week.  The new games on my iPad interested me far more than anything on Vita.  frown

Maybe it's just me but.. It's only been out just 2 months!!! I don't get why you would drop 300 and give up in 2 months? I'm still in the positive mindset with the vita. Not only that I think thus far it's been a great device. I still have lots of things on it to keep me interested...Rayman,Uncharted, hotshots, wipeout, motorstorm, superstar dust...infact I'm thinking of playing something
On it... And I can't make my mind up. Maybe it's just me;).

I did the same exact thing. Maybe I'll check it out again...Btw, how is dc universe?

DC is a fun game up'n till max level where it gets a bit grindy - but for an MMO, it does do some pretty nice stuff. Be aware though, it took me 3 days to download.

Wtf!?! Three days! Wow. How big is that file?

The only thing I don't like is that the keyboard takes up drawing real estate when you're guessing, but the drawing screen doesn't show it, so you often get art that's obscured.  I am certain there's a way to make it disappear, but it's not apparent.

You can "pull" the screen up to see the part that's obscured by the letters.

I actually just figured that out on my last play!  Still not ideal, though.  There should really be a way to hide the keyboard.  I'm sure they're working on it, it's so obvious.

One person I have been playing draw something with has been putting words in their pictures - kind of made me wonder if people send the answer back and forth just for coins. Played correctly its pretty amusing, though.

I've taken to deleting those people immediately.

I do the same thing. It's fun played correctly, but giving the answer! Really?!? Where's the fun in that? Still don't understand the train of though involved in cheating.

For anyone that was interested in Warrior's Lair (formerly known as Ruin), the upcoming hack and slash action RPG, you might not want to hold your breath.  Through some friends at the company (Idol Minds) I heard that Sony canned the project today and they had to layoff a bunch of people. 

Bad news for Vita gamers, and worse news for those developers.    disgust

Great...the one RPG coming out for the Vita gets shitcanned.   icon_evil  If E3 doesn't bring some significant news on the Vita front, mine will be on Ebay shortly thereafter.
surely not good news, but I'm not sure I share the opinions of above. Im sticking with my "it's way too early to be that negative" about things with the vita. Most consoles don't have THAT many great games that early on...
