    Single Player games you would recommend...or help my lag?

    Post by Seignar on Wed Mar 20, 2013 5:03 pm

    So, this happened...I had received news that my Internet's speed was increased. However, the only thing it has done is slow down everything and cause me to lag in Dark Souls consistently.

    As such, I must now refrain from most, if not all online activity (Except sneak kills in Dark Souls) and I'm practically locked into playing DMC HD collection for my Single-Player. If anything, that will soon lose its luster. So, I must ask you my fellow forumites: What would be good Single-Player games for the PS3 (PSN included; already tried Persona 3 FES, so don't recommend that).

    ...or help me fix my lag?

    What is it about your internet that was done? Check with your ISP though, you may have faster download and upload speeds but your ISP may be throttling your gaming bandwidth.

    As for singleplayer games, all HD collections are amazing(particularly stuff like PoP, Hitman or ICO/Shadow of Colossus). There are always JRPG's too.

    Valkyria Chronicles and if you have a PC, Civilzation (4/5) and Homeworld.

    These games are like crack, that you can enjoy a single rock for several months.

    It was good knowing ya.

    I can suggest Cave Story. Also, check out vsauce's DONG's on Youtube. There's always some single player games mentioned on there.

    Wait Longshot. I never said I was quitting Dark Souls, just I wouldn't be doing straight out PVP.
    Anyways, thanks for the recommendation on Valkyria, I remember having downloaded the demo on 2010 and liking it in general. Although, I was a bit annoyed I had at least 2 of everything and my opponent had like 5 scouts or something...

    I suppose the actual game does feature opposing forces of all kinds? The demo was kind of easy because they had so many Scouts and not enough Shocktroopers to impede my straight-forward tactics...

    What is it about your internet that was done? Check with your ISP
    though, you may have faster download and upload speeds but your ISP may
    be throttling your gaming bandwidth.
    I don't know the details, apparently the "speed of the internet" was boosted, although I have only seen quite the opposite, most noticeably on console. Mostly everything involving my internet has been slowed and I have not noticed any performance upgrades.

    You going wirelessy or wired to the PS3? Could also be a net connection with a crap contention ratio, so basically crap internet at peek times. Is the internet bad on pc\laptop etc as well or is it just ps3.

    As for games, there's so many, the hd collections like den said although he left out the bob of war collection. It's early in the morning so i'm scratching my head to think of others but there are great games out that will keep you going for ages.

    Tokyo Jungle
    Very fun game. You start off as a little pup in the streets of a city in tokyo, roaming aroundjust trying to survive. Eventually you can unlock other animals. It's especially fun being a velociraptor.

    inFamous: Blood Carnival
    Very short campaign, but the game is just so fun to play. Unlike the other inFamous games, this one is actually fun because you don't have to worry about choosing a side, just about powering up. Plus, you get to be an eltricity-controlling vampire!

    Gungrave: Overdose
    Game based on an anime based on a manga about a dead gangster who comes back to life to protect those he loves with awesome gunslinging action. It's a PS2 title but you can get it on PSN.

    Way of the Samurai 4
    All the Way of the Samurai games are amazing, this latest being the best. You're a samurai in Japan on the turn of an era where europeans and guns are introduced to Japan. You walk around, encountering people. Some attack you, some don't. You can choose to do 'missions' which progress the story, or just go around fighting everyone and everything. Plus you can create your own weapons from different parts, and trust me there's a lot. It's a game worth playing, one of my favorites.

    all these are from PSN, definitely worth the money.

    You mention the Hitman HD collection, I really enjoyed those on PS2 but I have read mixed reviews about the remake, is it any good?

    Dead Space 1, 2 and 3 - Third person horror games. Great, fun and exciting gameplay with interesting story.

    Red Dead Redemption - Third person shooter game. AmazingBeautiful story. Great gameplay.

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - A hack and slash game. Although short, it provides fun gameplay.

    Heavy Rain - I've heard good things about it.

    Sonic Adventure 2 HD/Battle - I believe it was released for PS3 as well as 360. It's a great and fun game that offers more than just the general Sonic games do. You can take care of "Chaos". These Chaos can be leveled up and taken care of by you. They can also die. All in all, if you care for the "taking care of Chaos" aspect of the game, it can also offer some emotional relations to the game. Atleast it did to me. Still miss my chaos. sad

    I honestly don't know if the HD collection is good, but I do know the old games are good and the two HD collections I own(PoP and DMC) are great. I'll probably pick it up next month(or maybe even this Friday) so I'll let you know.

    Stop. Just STOP.

    Dead Space 3 is awful. Heavy Rain is awful.

    And while we're at it, Koei games are awful.

    Admittedly I've never played Heavy Rain, I saw some gameplay of it and didn't really like what I saw. The game looks beautiful itself, but I'm no fan of quicktime events so I just ended up avoiding it.

    Dragon's Dogma is singleplayer with the multiplayer being used differently than in most games.

    Any of the Atelier games that you could find, they're JRPG and have an time limit on them so there is actually some pressure to the decisions you make within them.

    HeavyRains not a game, it's something very different but it's good, worth checking out.
