    The God of War PSP games are supposed to be great and they look just as good as the PS2 Collection did

    Well

    still kind of immaterial since as I said before I ain't got no money

    and any money I acquire in the near future is going to Batman

    I'll accept that

    Are the GoW PSP games any good? I loved console games.

    they're both supposed to be amazing

  • BalefuegoBalefuego Registered User regular
    oh!

    I guess in that case I might do Resistance? Iunno.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll still be doing it when MGS Collection comes out

    although probably not since it's not sony exclusive

    but maybe!
    Resistance is butts

    I really enjoyed GoW: Chains of Olympus, I'd put it above GoW1 actually. It's really short though, even by God of War standards.

    Definitely going to pick up the Origins Collection.

    I tried out Chains of Olympus but couldn't get into it on the PSP. I had the same problem with Metal Gear Portable Ops

    that's why I'm excited for Peace Walker being in the HD collection

  • lostwordslostwords Registered User regular
    Peace walker was so damn good. Are the acid games part of the collection, Keith? I love my some tcg action

    I might not have either, but I borrowed a friend's PSP exclusively to play Chains of Olympus.

    Nope

    It's MGS2, 3, and Peace Walker

  • lostwordslostwords Registered User regular
    That's disappointing. Also that deal makes me mad cause I just ordered the sotc/ico collection two days ago and I probably would have bought the resistance pack ah well

    Man, I not only bought it for $40, but blew my Newegg voucher doing it, and then realized after it shipped that I could have just bought it through work for $10.

  • DarricDarric Santa MonicaRegistered User regular
    And then Newegg dropped the price to $35 almost immediately.

    Well apparently I preordered this like a month or so ago and completely forgot about that. Yay!

  • The GeekThe Geek Oh-Two Crew, Omeganaut Registered User, ClubPA regular
    Really wish I had 60 bucks right now to get those two collections.

    Resistance 3 was surprisingly good, but I haven't played the first two.

    Also, I have really poor impulse control and bought ICO/SotC last night at Fry's for 30 bones.

    I just killed colossus 11

    it's weird, I could have sworn there was a second electric eel colossus, and I remember thinking "wow that's kind of phoned in, why do I basically have to do the same fight twice?"

    but there clearly isn't so I don't know why I have that impression

    it should be pointed out that the sales data being referenced there is only parsed from Amazon, so it may not be the top selling game in the US.

    No FUCK YOU

    I mean really I know the joke is that there's no way it will end well but really I mean

    ICO had a happy ending

    a weird happy ending

    but a happy ending all the same!

    I mean

    it's absolutely possible that TLG is gonna end tragically

    I just don't think it's a forgone conclusion

    so far they have a 50% rate of happy endings

    okay so it's still pretty open to interpretation, but I don't think that Yorda actually made it out of the castle

    eh
    when something is extremely ambiguous and unclear, like ICO's ending, it's usually meant to convey that the literal meaning isn't all that important

    you break out of the stark severe castle and end up on a beautiful white beach, and it's completely open and free of obstacles, in extreme contrast to the castle and Yorda's there and you enjoy some delicious watermelon

    That's a happy ending, regardless of if it "actually" happened. There's a reason the guy was quick to say "well that's only one interpretation of the ending."

    And even if that is what "really happened," that's still not a tragic ending, it's bittersweet. And honestly so is SotC's ending.
    Wander dies, but is reincarnated with the chance to atone for his sins. Mono gets revived like he was promised, and Dormin is vanquished from the world for good so that that It can not prey on the weakness of mortals any longer. Overall it's a net win, and only feels tragic because the player character is the only casualty.

    Yeah that's a good take on things.

    I do remember, immediately upon seeing the ending of SotC, turning to my brother and going 'THAT WAS THE WORST ENDING EVER D:'

    one of my favorite things about SotC

    during the ending, a deer walks across the camera

    if you look through the end credits, there is someone credited as the Deer Animator

    They had a guy whose entire job was to animate the deer that shows up for about two seconds
