Question about Games On Demand

#1MrluzoPosted 7/7/2011 1:17:31 PM
I traded in some games today and picked up 4200 points against them. So I am going to buy torchlight and maybe something from games on demand. I was thinking
either Risen, Eternal Sonata or Tales of Vesperia. Going to youtube them and read reviews etc before I do.

Question is, do games on demand suffer and problems? Lagging or frame rate drops or problems with sound? I really want a good rpg and since money is tight I dont want to waste it on one of these to find it has problems that will harm the gameplay experience.

I couldnt find any of the above titles in my local gamestop, and I really want a good RPG, so that is why I am using Games On Demand.

Also, feel free to advise on which title to download. Thanks.

Being on Games on Demand doesn't add any issues. If a game had a bad framerate on disk then it will on GoD.

It's the same as installing games to your HD. They'll load faster, but it wont induce any issues.

Depends on the game.

Good luck finding a copy of ToV for cheaper than $30, which is the price on GoD.

Also, good luck finding a retail copy of Deathsmiles 2.

Torchlight is an Arcade title, not a GoD title.

You can't but it from Amazon.

Oh, also, it is part of the DotW for Gold members, so is currently 33% off (800MSP).
