What games are you buying during the State of Play sale?

1 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:10 ID: nnc8dq

I’m thinking about getting Spider-Man, Valhalla or Final Fantasy XIV myself. I’m curious if there are other good games to buy right now for their price during the sale.

Can’t beat Horizon Zero for $0

ID: gzufx7x

For some reason I just can’t get into HZD.. does it take a bit for the game to take off?

ID: gzusma8

Might just not be for you, I noticed many people have a hard time. I was intrigued by the story and the mystery surrounding this world and the robots. It starts slow, then it peaks up but I gotta say, mid-game towards the end it feels like a slug for a few missions, it deviated from the things I was interested in finding out. Anyway, still one of the top 5 last-gen games for me.

I started playing and then didn't touch in for like 6 months, tried it again and once the story gets going it gets better.(had a similar experience with Control)

I'm tempted by Demon's Souls but it's a pretty tiny discount and I doubt I'd be able to finish it before Ratchet & Clank drops in a couple weeks.

ID: gzuuas8

It will get discounts, deeper too if you wait long enough. Meanwhile play other games in your backlog

FF14 complete edition. Glad I waited for a sale.

5 : Anonymous2021/05/29 02:37 ID: gztyccc

Yakuza 0

6 : Anonymous2021/05/29 03:42 ID: gzu4zd7

Going to get Spiderman and Jedi Fallen Order. I badly want Demon's Souls but the price is still high.

ID: gzuwps3

Fallen order should be getting a free ps5 update soon so good idea to pick it up but maybe play Spider-Man first

ID: gzuykuw

Yes. That's the plan. I am playing Control now so I will start Spiderman after I'm done with this. What are you playing currently?

7 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:38 ID: gzts06t

I'm saving my money for Rachet and Clank but I think I'll pick up the Ultimate upgrade for MK11. I bought the base game when it launched

8 : Anonymous2021/05/29 10:50 ID: gzuyqp1

Some of the sales are pretty bad. In Australia, a 17% off sale brings Spider-Man MM down from $95 to $79. So it's now what a full priced physical copy of a PS4 game would be on release. Sackboy's 14% off sale is pretty bad too. $110 down to $95.

On the other hand, TLOU2 has a juicy 57% off sale which is really nice.

9 : Anonymous2021/05/29 06:36 ID: gzuj7di

Tlou2, sekiro, and blasphemous. I need to stop buying games.. so many to play in my backlog.

10 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:13 ID: gztpgf7

I bought Judgment

ID: gzu6fqm

Played any yet ?

Sackboy so far. The game is terrific, feels very Mario-esque and it’s beautiful looking. Loving it.

ID: gzugajw

Platinumed it with my wife and really loved it. Have fun with it! 🙂

ID: gzunkgo

I definitely would plat it if I had a second controller, I hate when games have co-op/multiplayer trophies

ID: gzuohxj

I was planning on buying this in the sale, but 14% off is a joke. So I bought Streets of Rage 4 instead.

13 : Anonymous2021/05/29 03:05 ID: gzu186l

Finally bought Last of Us 2 to try cause it was on sale and finally got the 60fps update that I had been waiting for

14 : Anonymous2021/05/29 03:10 ID: gzu1r9f

Persona 5 royal

ID: gzuazdd

Yeah, had about 10 hours into P5 (free w PSN) and once I read some of the great changes in Royal I bought it. NO RAGRETS

ID: gzu37be

Just got it too. What are your thoughts?

ID: gzu3gcg

I’m 10 hours into the game. Loving it so far.

ID: gzub0rd

Best JRPG I've played in a long long time

ID: gzvbqak

For me, I keep starting and stopping it, I’m not sure why. I’m in the 2nd palace, maybe 20hrs in. I think I’m not super interested in the mechanics of your team of personas still? It’s hard to tell in battle when I should be trying to kill outright, or get more money or items, or should I be trying to get that xp for a persona or not (it’s hard to tell what difference being higher level makes). It seems like combat is a mini puzzle of “how can you finish combat in the first round” and I’m not sure it’s jiving with me so far.

15 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:14 ID: gztphmj

Spider Man. Might pick up Doom, though I’m not much of an FPS guy. $5 is too good to pass on.

Maybe Sekiro.

ID: gzts2w4

Sekiro was my GOTY for 2019 and in my top 5 favorite games of the decade this past decade so I can’t praise it enough, but it IS a challenging game to start but I absolutely love love love it, this is the lowest I’ve seen it digitally so I’d say check it out if you are interested

ID: gzuivhm

i know that every comment thinks X game is the best game in the world and its a must play, but doom is very very fun and definitely worth $5.

ID: gzux440

Don't wait on Sekiro it is in my top 3 games of all time

16 : Anonymous2021/05/29 05:06 ID: gzucg0t

I got into Resident Evil series literally 2 weeks ago. Started with 7 on sale to test the water, last week I finished Village. Today I bought Resident Evil 2 remake. I think I'm officially a fan of the series now.

17 : Anonymous2021/05/29 04:14 ID: gzu80oo

I got Bugsnax and loving it so far. I'll probably pick up Miles Morales and GoT later on.

18 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:54 ID: gzttqqt

not sure if this is why its on sale but I’m planning on buying ffxiv. Never got into a MMO but I’m obsessssed

ID: gzuuaw9

I got into it like a month ago and I have already played like 200 hours.. It’s reeally good, especially once you get to the expansions. Also the community is really nice.

19 : Anonymous2021/05/29 10:25 ID: gzux5w8

Final fantasy 14 is the only sale that’s tempting me, most of the others are too low.

Not sure if I want to sign up for a monthly fee tho, i fucking hate subscription style gaming. It makes me feel obligated to constantly play the one game that I have to keep paying for rather than ever making any progress on my backlog.

I probably shouldn’t buy ff14 but damned if I don’t love FF games, so I hate to miss out on a decent game

20 : Anonymous2021/05/29 02:57 ID: gzu0h0i

Judgment. Thinking about buying RE3, maybe buying sekiro.

21 : Anonymous2021/05/29 13:21 ID: gzvaf69

Finally got 13 sentinals and oh my god is it such a great game. I heard about it through the castle super beast podcast once and I'm so glad I waited for a sale to pick it up

22 : Anonymous2021/05/29 02:54 ID: gzu0371

Bought The Outer Worlds Season Pass today.

23 : Anonymous2021/05/29 05:51 ID: gzufyrl

Played and finished bloodborne recently and now I’m playing through dark souls 3. I’m gonna continue this train of despair and grab Sekiro to play next.

ID: gzukwkx

Out of curiosity, how is Bloodborne these days? Still active enough to enjoy picking up for a first timer?

ID: gzumgbz

Bloodborne is great. I highly recommend it. It’s tough (you will die..a lot) but once you get the hang of things it’s very fun.

24 : Anonymous2021/05/29 12:30 ID: gzv5xpt

Far cry 5

25 : Anonymous2021/05/29 01:17 ID: gztpv4d

Bought RE 3 and Titanfall 2.

ID: gzu1wef

Make sure you don't skip over TF2 campaign. Its not that long and outside of the boring first mission its brilliant.

ID: gzv0klc

Yeah i enjoyed both hours of the campaign

Joking aside, I regret not playing this MP when it was new.

Well designed game.

26 : Anonymous2021/05/29 02:07 ID: gztv3yc

Already got REmake and RE4 as I never played them before. Maybe I’ll splurge on a AAA game if it’s for sale

27 : Anonymous2021/05/29 06:51 ID: gzuk6d8

Imo none. I might borrow returnal to give it a try. Not a fan of rouge likes/lites but figured at minimum its worth a try.

Ill be picking up ratchet and clank when it comes lut for sure though.

28 : Anonymous2021/05/29 07:30 ID: gzumoti

I bought Fenyx Rising and am loving it. I'll probably get GOT before the sale ends.

There's a great deal on Far Cry 5 and New Dawn but there's been no patch to make it 60fps, which is a shame.
