I would be jealous too as my current one is broken.

I looked this error message up online and other people don't know how the **** to deal with this either. I haven't bought anything since that network outage way back so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it.
you may want to search your inbox, i got an email from sony or something about a year ago. At the time they were giving away 2 free games to everyone when you signed back in but i dont know if thats still going

After a five-month hiatus due to being abroad for a semester, I'm finally returning home on Saturday and one of the things I look forward to most is ditching this POS, 5-year-old, Acer-actually-a-notebook-but-shitty-enough-to-be-a-netbook that has a faulty power supply cord, about 1mb of RAM (such that I cannot watch things on Youtube without video AND audio stutter, even if all other programs are closed), and most aggravatingly, a mystifyingly uneven bottom surface such that the whole damn thing wobbles when I type.

And once I'm back on my dearly beloved desktop, after transferring all the pictures I've taken and music I've downloaded, I'm going to get back into the game of my childhood, Counterstrike.

You see, the newest iteration, Global Offensive, was released toward the end of August, and ever since I've been sating my addiction by watching livestreams of competitive matches and tournaments. Finally I can get off the spectator's bench and jump into the twitch-reaction, legacy-as-****, skill-ceiling-higher-than-Snoop-Lion goodness of CS.

I'm going to get my ass whooped (which, considering I have a decade of experience, is kind of sad, but such is CS) and it's going to be fun.

Yeah, I remember getting that email and got the two games for free as well. Not sure what the issue is but some people say it can go away after a while so I guess I'll just try a bit later.

Edit: I just reset my billing information and it works now.

I will totally play with you, I've needed an excuse to play that more. What's your name on Steam?

So, Journey was incredible. Definitely something you have to experience if you've got a PS3. Time flew by when I was playing it, and it only took me an hour and a half to two hours tops, but it was unbelievably fulfilling. Honestly, I didn't know what the hell was going on half the time and the game gives you pretty much no real direction, but I think that made it even better.

I enjoyed the anonymous companion thing SO much more than I thought I would, and it had to be the best thing about the game. There was a particular point in the game where it was really apparent:

Spoiler for Spoilers:
The second last "level" where you're hiking up the mountain, you actually have to rely on the other person to help to boost you up through the snowstorm, and vice versa. It's by far the longest portion of the game, and there's a particular point where you have to cross a wide open plain being watched over by a giant monster with no cover but some small rocks to hide under. It actually got pretty nerve racking, but it was cool to go through it with some other player. The ending of that portion when both characters start dying down was very memorable as well.


As for replay value, I'm not really sure that it provides much. I know that going through it again would not be anywhere near the same experience, but I do think that I could still enjoy it. Either way though, it's $15 Canadian, and that's not much more than it is to go to a movie theatre here. I know that I got a lot more out of this than pretty much any movie.

is it actually a game, or just a visceral "experience"?

Sounds like it could use some custom classes, some red tiger camo

I definitely dig the art direction on that. I wish there were more games out there that looked so cool!

^ Yeah, definitely one of if not the most beautiful game I've played.

And it's kind of in-between a game and an "experience". It wasn't challenging at all, but you do have to kind of figure out how the mechanics work yourself and perform everything on your own as it doesn't really give you much guidance. It's probably more of a game than some of the other visceral experience games you hear about though.
