If anybody is looking for a very unique, very well made RPG with an interesting cast, I recommend Riviera: The Promised Land for the GBA or PSP (You can get it digital for Vita as well). Truly not one to miss out on if you like the genre!

Okay guys, I just earned $50 to add to my $100. I'm only looking to spend around $40 to save up for future games, so I plan on either getting Mario & Luigi Dream Team for 3DS or Rayman Legends for Vita. What should I get? Rayman Legends looks so charming and excellent in terms of quality, while Dream Team looks so imaginative and addictive! I know both of these games have already came out and people have played them, so I need other gamers' inputs. What should I do? Reply ASAP. And I may need more than one response just to be sure.

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

@ClassicSonicFan Yeah I'd go do that. Sorry for not replying.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

I originally heard that Rayman Legends Vita would be missing 28 levels, but then I heard it was only the Invasion levels, which are actually modified versions of existing levels. So in all honesty, I didn't mind that. I also heard that the Invasion levels would be added via a free future patch. So Rayman Legends Vita it is! M & L Dream Team will have to wait.

Posted this in the PS3 thread, but no one's replying...

I really want to get Bayonetta. Right now, it's available on the PSN store for $15 and seems like practically a steal, yet I've heard bad things about this version (like being 30 FPS instead of 60 FPS). I don't have a Xbox 360 (and never will buy another Microsoft console again because of what Microsoft tried to do with the Xbox One), so the PS3 version is my only choice unless they port it to the Wii U. Should I bother with it nonetheless despite it being a weaker game than the 360? Currently deciding between this and Red Dead Redemption for my next purchase.

And while I'm at it, I'll ask another thing. I've been thinking about doing YouTube videos (not planning on displaying a face yet since I don't really like the way I look) and I want to use it for rants/discussion about video games/etc. Are there any video editing programs to recommend that's any good that isn't outrageously expensive?

Honestly, I would sooner recommend you buy a used 360 for $150, even if Bayonetta is all you play on it, than suggesting you play the PS3 version...

I agree with CanisWolfred on this one. It would probably be cheaper for you to buy a 360 if thats the only game you want to play. Than after you finish it you can trade it in. Not buying a 360 because of what MS tried to do with the Xbox One is a stupid reason not to buy a 360. But in the end its your money.

You're probably right on that one, but if I were to get a Xbox 360 (and it'd be used since I have no intentions of giving Microsoft any money), it'd just be for single-player games like Bayonetta and while I would love to play the best version, I don't feel like spending $150 on a machine for one game. Perhaps after the 360 is no longer being supported and I have some money leftover will I reconsider a 360 if I find other single-player exclusives (or superior versions) worth getting, but for right now, I'm going to hold off on Bayonetta and hope for a Wii U port that turns out better (and there are a few games I do want to get on that system even if PS4 will be my priority). So Red Dead Redemption it is.

1. A Link to the Past, Twilight Princess, Wind Waker HD. I recommend you don't play Majora's Mask. (Not connected though, just a gut feeling)
2. 1, 2, 3, 4.

1. Um, whatever you want. You won't gain anything from playing in a certain order. It's Zelda. Timeline BS aside, none of the games are actually connected, and every one of them offers something different to the table.

2. Metal Gear Solid 1, then 2, then 3, then 4. Portable Ops is non-canon and Peacewalker comes after 3, which is really the only thing you have to remember, because it has spoilers for 3. Metal Gear Solid 3 may be a prequel, but you won't understand jacksquat if you haven't played MGS1 before.

You dont recommend Majora's Mask??? Blasphemy!!!
Seriously, I'd rather play that than all the other Zelda Games I mentioned.

I just got a $25 Gamestop gift card and I can't decide what to do with it. I have a number of options:
1. Use it towards a game. Probably Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, but I also want Blacklist and Lego City: Undercover. The problem with this one is I would still need to put more money into it, and our budget only allows me $30 per month on non-essential things like video games. Also all of these games are cheaper on Amazon than at Gamestop, but definitely not $25 cheaper.
2. Get a $20 eShop card for the WiiU, where I would get probably Duck Tales but I also still think The Cave looks cool and I liked the demo.
3. Get a $20 eShop card for the 3DS where I would probably get a number of VC games I want (Shantae, Wario Land, Sword of Hope 2...can't think of any other off the top of my head, but I know they are there).
Any suggestions or other ideas?

Undercover and Blacklist probably will go down in price sooner than later. There is a demo for Dream Team. I don't know the quality of it, but it might help you with your decision. Basically if it doesn't convince you, maybe it's worth going for an eShop card instead.

As for which one to get...I really want to say "go for Ducktales" but some old school fans have found it disappointing, while a few others have run into glitches. Just thought I'd put that out there, I don't know how serious those issues are. Really, it comes down to do you want 1 potentially great game, or a bunch of smaller games that might each be great in their own right...or maybe not so great.

Personally, I don't like to put all my eggs in one basket. You also have the option of saving it for when something really important comes out. It's up to you, maybe you should look hard to see which games you want the most and see what you can do?
