by Ron Duwell | September 24, 2016

I woke up this morning thinking that it was about time for PlayStation to throw a Flash Sale over the weekend. I sat down at my desk, fired up my PC to start my day, and hey! Would you look at that!? A Flash Sale from PlayStation.

Either it’s becoming like clockwork, or I’ve been doing this for too long.

If we’re going with recommendations, as usual, my favorite game here is Mega Man Legends. Capcom broke a lot of ground on the original PlayStation with this game by creating an anime world to play in, and the art design was clearly inspired by the Studio Ghibli classic Castle in the Sky. Excellent game, one of my all time favorites.

For $16, Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a steal. High quality Dragon Ball games are rare enough, but this series has broken ground in making sure it can live up to the anime’s legacy. Plus, making your own character lets you put a fun spin on the canon. Here’s mine in action!

Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Grim Fandango Remastered are easy recommendations, and everyone loves Rayman Legends. I’ve always had more of a soft spot for both Shantae and the Pirates Curse and Shantae Risky’s Revenge when it comes to 2D platformers. I’ll also give a nod to Ducktales Remastered since $4.49 is worth the price of “The Moon” remix alone. The game is pretty fun, too.

Catherine is the most unique game of the bunch and is worth a look for anyone who loves Persona and weird block puzzle games. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is in the running as one of the best JRPGs for the PlayStation 3, and what would an animation sale be without South Park: The Stick of Truth. And, it’s not the best game in its series, but Tales of Zesteria is a decent entry in the long-running series.

The best game is Tales of Symphonia, which is actually cheaper!

Plenty of great games to go around, so be sure to check out PlayStation Store this weekend. And oh man, I just gotta hear it!
