Knowing Steam this will only be avalible for free for a few days, then you have to pay for it to play further. So basically it is free for like 3 days, and after that is will be completely useless if you haven't bought the game :I

    I know that at one time, you could get a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 if you didn't own it already, but that was only for a very brief time.

    Sometimes Steam (and Origin aswell) does that, but I think they would announce that elsewise as they do with these games who are free atm.

    Indeed, the game was fully free on Wednesday according to Steam. I think they should announce such things better imo, as you really have to search well to get the free games or just keep a watch on Steam all the time. Origin just annoys you with a pop-up once they release a game for free (last time was Dead Space 1 iirc)

    L4D2 is a Valve game. Very likely that only Valve games will ever have "Free to keep forever if you can download it in one day" days like that. It was free on Christmas, too.

      I don't think WarPaint is referring to L4D2 this time.

      I'm pretty sure he's asking why it being for the PS4 swayed your opinion of the game.

      Oh, because the original release date of Watch_Dogs was close to the PS4 launch, and being excited over the console kind of trickled into the games for the platform :P I've always been a huge fan of PlayStation so anything that looks pretty, and is for the console makes me interested :3 Shallow way of thinking, I know ;-;

          I think the fact that you can get Legend of Mana on your Vita and therefore have that game in a portable form is reason enough to keep the Vita.

          Somewhat along the same line as Satoshi, why would you trade in your PS3? D:

            No kidding, i'm buying one next month. Probably the Borderlands 2 bundle despite lacking the OLED screen it comes with a memory card so yay.

            Doubt i'll run out of JRPG to play, for now i have in mind:
            - Atelier Totori/Meruru Plus (maybe rorona plus in 2014 if Gust localize it)
            - Demon Gaze
            - Conception II
            - Tales of Heart R
            - YS

            Non-JRPG:
            - Dangan Ronpa 1&2

            I'm probably forgetting some titles.

              Trading my PS3 in for a PS4 bundle, is what I meant. As for my Vita, seriously all I have is the Disgaea remake that I have for the PS3, Demon Gaze, and Metal Gear HD, which again I've played. A lot of the JRPGs coming out where already on a console, and I've played them there. It's a bit much to constantly rebuy things

              Ah, that would make sense, and seems like a good idea. I would consider doing that except I love my PS3 no matter how chunky it is (I don't have the slim version) XD I'm not making the mistake of selling/trading a console again.

              This year? The JRPGs coming out, as far as I know, are mostly original. Conception 2, SAO: Hollow Fragment, Hyperdimension Spin-off, Natural Doctrine, etc. There are remakes, but there are also a bunch of non-JRPG games coming out as well

              ...Though, for me, my eye is on Disgaea 4. I make it a point to not buy the games since they're rereleased with more content later on handhelds. Personally, I'd at least wait until after E3. Or get into digital downloads (since Vita physicals barely have anything worth buying them for, save for collective purposes. Often times they don't even have books).

                So, I picked up a copy of Secret of Evermore yesterday at a con for $40. That's way more than I've seen it for on eBay, especially after the con, but... cons, man. It's a really good game anyway, and fully worth it.

                You mean Neptunia PP or Rebirth?
                'cause Rebirth isn't spin-off.

                And people still forget Persona-look-alike, Mind 0 in the list of JRPGs.

                You don't search enough =D There's lot of Vita-only JRPGs =)
                And... I would actually advise against trading PS3 for PS4... at least for now. PS4 has really small library and aside from Child of Light, there's no JRPG...
