This weekend's PSN flash sale is ridonkulous.

There are 81 games for around a buck or just under a buck on PSN this weekend.

The PSN has finally heat Steam Sale territory - and there's some awesome stuff, like Telltale Games titles, SCE first-party PSN titles, and PS1 classics.  Let's take a gander, shall we?  Here's the standouts, in alphabetical order...

Back to the Future: The Game (full series - PS3)
The game that got Telltale Games (The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, A Wolf Among Us) foot in the door can be owned, in its entirety on PS3, for eighty cents.

Breath of Fire IV (PS1 classic - PS3/PSP/Vita)
One of the great old JRPGs, Breath of Fire IV is ninety-six cents.

Dead Nation
The horror-themed twin-stick shooter from legendary genre developer Housemarque (Super Stardust, Resogun) can be had on PS4 for $1.65 on PS4, or $0.88 on PS3 or Vita.

The game is great.  If you don't have it, if you've ever been the least bit curious about it, now's the time.

Dino Crisis 1 & 2 (PS1 classic - PS3/ PSP/Vita)
Capcom tried to recapture the lightning in a bottle which was Resident Evil by cross-breeding it with Jurassic Park in these classics - just ninety-six cents each.

Game of Thrones (PS3)
It's not Telltale's Game of Thrones, unfortunately - it's that sub-par RPG from a few years back - but I had some friends who loved it, and for eighty cents, you may too.

Gravity Rush (Vita)
Still one of the best games on Vita, Gravity Rush is a must-own, and if I could buy it again at eighty-one cents to cement my digital license of the game (which is currently granted only through my PS+ membership), I totally would.

If you haven't tried this game yet, you have no further excuses.

Home: A Unique Horror Adventure (PS4 or Vita)
One of Sony's indies that never really took off, you can give Home a try for ninety-five cents.

Jurassic Park: The Game (full season - PS3)
Another of Telltale Games' early works, for eighty cents.

Katamari Damacy (PS2 classic for PS3)
The original classic for ninety cents.  I'm buyin' this just for Kayla to try.

Megaman X 4, Megaman X 5 (PS1 classic - PS3/ PSP/Vita)
Ninety-six cents each.  Hell yes.  Bought.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection (PS3)
It's Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3's original arcade ports, on the PS3, for ninety cents.

Payday: The Heist (PS3)
The first game in the co-op shooter franchise, for ninety cents.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space (full season - PS3)
Another Telltale adventure, for eighty cents.

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse (PS3)
Yet another Telltale adventure for eighty cents!

Surgeon Simulator: A&E Anniversary Edition (PS4)
Wacky medical hijinks, for ninety-one cents.

Syphon Filter (PS1 classic - PS3/ PSP/Vita)
Aw man, I still remember trying Syphon Filter at a friend's house and just marveling at the tazer.  Yeah, you remember the tazer.  We all do. Ninety-six cents.

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!! (PS3 or Vita)
Before they made the absolutely fabulous Guacamelee, Drinkbox Studios made the pretty-darn-good platformer Mutant Blobs Attack.  A launch window game on Vita, it's absolutely worth picking up for less than a buck.

Tales of Monky Island Bundle (PS3)
Telltale Games!  An adventure!  Eighty cents!

Tokyo Jungle (PS3)
That crazy/weird generational survival/action game from SCEJ is just ninety cents - and definitely worth grabbin'.

Wild Arms, Wild Arms 2 (PS1 classic - PS3/ PSP/Vita)
Like Breath of Fire, Wild Arms are some seriously beloved PS1 classics - just ninety-six cents each!

Zeno Clash 2 (PS3)
Deeply surreal first-person brawling can be yours for just ninety cents.

So, I think I... am gonna' go nab Breath of Fire, those Megaman X titles and Katamari Damacy.
