    I wish they did them on UK PSN, It's such a faf getting US PSN money from eBay.

    Munch, according to community.us.psn.com, the EU PAYPAL doesn't work on a US PSN account and this has been purposefully implemented to prevent false accounts being set up! we're doing it anyway so you'd think Sony would just be happy to take the money any which way.

    You JoystiQz-_-z said:I wish they did them on UK PSN, It's such a faf getting US PSN money from eBay.I just use amazon.com for mine -- Though my nephew pointed me to another site which he uses for all his code purchases, and they're actually cheaper than the monetary value! It's at g2a.com so will probably use them next time.

    OT: Nothing I want here, though I'm not really an anime fan so none of these are really my style, as far as I know. :)

    I think I'll wait for the Black Friday blowout sale. I have just about nothing left on my account and none of these titles make me want to go through the hassle of getting more money on there.

    Also, I have yet to come close to finishing all those games I bought in the under $1 sale from earlier this year.

    Blue Toad Murder files only episode 1 though? Why even bother?

    Thanks Mystical, that's gives me many more options then I had, so that should at least not make it such an fiddle to get PSN money.

Why even bother?If it's any good you can get episodes 2-6 for $8 so it's worth it IMO.It is good, I played all of them years ago (2010-11), probably after a discount of some sort. I just meant what's the point of putting the one episode on sale, and similarly, what's the point in only buying one episode when you have no guarantee the rest will go on sale?

    If it were me I'd probably just wait and buy them all in a sale. On the EU store they have a complete bundle as well as the episode 1 & upgrade option, but just looked at the NA store and looks like they only have the overpriced ep 1 and upgrade option. The normal price of 1 costs virtually half as much as the upgrade for the next 4... kind of a scam, that.

    Not to sound rude, but where did you get $8 from? I'm seeing $10 on the store for the upgrade. Sure, 80% off on the overpriced ep1 might seem like a good deal, but they should have a complete bundle for $15 (judging by the currency conversions on ep1), which means you'd be paying less if the complete bundle were discounted by even 27.5%... but the difference is most people wouldn't see 27.5% discount and be impressed. They woo you in with an 80% discount, but really, you're paying more. Marketing wins again.

    Oh sorry Prince, I thought you meant why am I bothering to get episode 1 because in the 1st post I said I was.

    In regards to the $8, that's what I thought I read last night but I obviously didn't if you're seeing it as $10. Either way, it's worth me getting it as I'd never heard of it and most likely won't get the rest of them unless they come into a sale.

    If I got 80% off of episode one and then either EU or US does a episodes 2-6 for any % off in the future then I'm on a winner.

    The truth is I was just interested to see what the game was about and didn't really give the further episodes any thought.

    It's pretty good, not amazing and quite flawed in places (small dev, first self-published/original IP game, so you have to cut some slack), there's decent variety in the puzzles and plot and some of the characters are pretty interesting if exaggerated. There's one who shouts "SCUM!" and in my mind it's infinitely quotable, but nobody will ever get the reference and you'll just sound crazy!

I often get people shouting scum at me as I walk along my road, at least now I know they were quoting this game! laugh
