Right, my understanding is it's related to that whole mystery dungeon thing (hence the 'Q' in persona q). But then my mind reads it as "IQ" as much as anything which might be intentional but from there it's only a minor cognitive leap to 'mindmaze'

And I wish it had a PS4 remaster so I could play it.

GOG's got their Star Wars Week specials up: looks like the X-Wing games are $5.29, KOTOR's $3.09, and Jedi Knight is a STEAL at $1.89 (all prices Canadian, so cut that by 30% for USD).

The Humble Store is giving away Dungeons 2 as part of their Spring Sale if you're interested.

Alan Wake is going to be 90% off this weekend... because it's going to be delisted after this weekend due to expiring music rights. Pick it up if you are even vaguely interested in it.

All digital stores. I can't imagine there's too many new physical copies on shelves, either.

Sci-fi themed flash sale on PSN. Some decent deals there -- Axiom Verge, Shadow Complex, Risk of Rain, the Stealth, Inc games, Doom, XCOM.

I had some leftover credit so I picked up Soma from that Flash sale. Been meaning to get it for a while.

Old news, but I might as well post this while it's still active. Tons of Xbox 360 games are on sale this week. I've already picked up a few and own many of the others, but I'm still hemming and hawing on others. What would you recommend? Ghostbusters is tempting, but there's a lot about the game I don't like in the gameplay footage I've seen. Must I use the PKE meter all the time? Yeesh.

It's been a while since I played, but I don't remember the PKE being an issue... The game is fun, it has the original actors and the story makes a modicum of sense! It's certainly worth the price.

It's the closest you're ever going to get to a canon Ghostbusters 3, so if that sounds interesting it's probably worth whatever they're asking.

Okay, okay, I'll do it! (No reason not to after that joystick auction fell through, grumble)

I just gotta think of something else to round it all out. Maybe Discs of Tron, maybe Metal Slug XX. I dunno. Decisions, decisions...

Starpoint Gemini 2 is free for 48 hours. I know absolutely nothing about it apart from that.
