Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Well, after my 360 got banned I did the deed - sold my 360 & HD for $100 and traded in my games at Gamestop for about $425 in credit and a shiny new 320gb PS3 is now mine. It's really nice, aside from the game updates/installs I think I might actually like it better than my 360. It's crazy quiet (I had a 360 fat, isn't going to require me to have a steady supply of AA batteries on hand, and seems to have really great monthly gifts if you do the subscription. But I do have a few questions I was hoping for help with.
1.) I had to enter a cc# to do the free trial of Plus. I'd like to let my son try the DC and FreeRealms online games but obviously I know they have the option to buy stuff. Is there some password protection to not let him accidentally buy stuff?
2.) How is the Plus from month to month? It seems worth it from the point that I just downloaded Sly Cooper for free, but is it normally that good and what other perks does it offer (if any).
3.) What games do I need? I'll play anything, especially want to try PS3 exclusives except Gran Turismo - I don't do sim-style racers. I saw Resistance, Motorstorm, and a bunch of HD remakes that are PS3 only. I was really intrigued by Heavy Rain and the Ico remake is a given as well. The online store seems to have a ton, but is a pain to browse. We bought (some are multiconsole that I just never got around to playing:
Uncharted 3 (packin)
Little Big Planet
Dragon Age Origins Ultimate
SSSFIV Arcade Edition
Batman Arkham Asylum
Metal Gear Solid 4
Earth Defense Force 2017: Insect Armageddon
and we downloaded Plants vs Zombies (my 7 year can't have a console without it...)
I'm going shopping at lunch today with two $10 off used games and one $5 off used games coupons from all the Powerup points I earned. Any ideas? Genre wise I know I could use another cheap - 7 yr old appropriate - fighting game, and maybe a FPS with a solid single player experience, and probably an arcade racer.
