PSN celebrates Golden Week with amazing sale on Japanese games

HNNNNNNNG!

Over in Japan, this week is Golden Week. It's a celebration encompassing four national holidays and also makes for the country's biggest travel and shopping season of the year. In honor of the festivities, Sony is hosting a massive sale on PlayStation Network starting tomorrow, featuring a myriad of awesome games from Japanese developers. 

Just about everything on offer is awesome and there are some killer deals mixed alongside more the modest discounts. My personal recommendation? Well, it's tough to choose. There's so much great stuff! But PlayStation Plus members would be remiss to pass on Rain for $3.75. The puzzle-platformer was among my favorite games released last year, and doesn't get enough love.

Get ready to make your wallet cry!

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

Downloading Phantom Pain. ETA, 16 hours. Just in time for lunch tomorrow.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

After a summer of on-and-off casual play, I've finally reached lv. 34 in Destiny :')

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.
