There an extended version of that song/video.



I also have both games but I don't mind the repeat all that much given what I was able to take advantage of in the last few months.

Eh... I feel kind of dumb still going on about the PS+ thing from last night, but oh well. Kind of a wall-o-text, so I put my replies in spoiler tags to it's not such a page hog.

Why are you ignoring the "initial batch" of games? Games like Infamous2, LBP2, R&C:A41, Saints Row 2, Just Cause 2, and Warhammer 40k are also pretty nice. If you joined in June like I did, you should have about 10-15 retail games and another 10-15 PSN games. Even at the low end of 20 games, $50 per year is not bad. And this is not even including Vita games. This is also not including the fact that June subsribers have 6 months left on that one year subscription. At this rate, there could easily be 30 or 40 games at the end of that first year. Less than $2 per game seems like a good deal to me - even if I don't want some of them.

That being said, if the service quality wanes over time, the value proposition will get less and less, but it is much too early to be concerned by that.


Spoiler


What did you expect, look at his user tag. Literally bought plus for free retail games as if that's mainly what the service was intended for:roll:


Spoiler


Well clearly there's a disclaimer with Plus that says users are going to get a minimum number of retail games per year. And anyone buying the service for anything other than retail games should just not bother.

Oh wait...the primary purpose of Plus isn't to get free retail games? And there's no promise or assumption anywhere that the majority of free games offered should be retail games? Weird...


Spoiler


The rest of the guys have pretty much said what I would have in a response so there's not much more for me to say on the subject of PS+.

I actually have no problem with people voicing their opinion or "complaining" about PS+, or pretty much anything else in the world. I think the reason we're all so testy about the PS+ complainers is that they do it in such a childish, immature, ungrateful fashion. They call the 20+ PSN games we're received since IGC started "crap" and "garbage", they threaten to storm off and not renew their subscription or to even change to a rival console, they curse and whine and (on the PS Blog) even suggest that the SCEA team should be fired. When the complainers say stuff like that, their arguments lose all validity. And since it happens almost ad nauseum across the internet, those of us here on CAG tire of it.

Here's a far better way of complaining:

Spoiler


If someone was to post a well thought out "complaint" like the one above, I'd gladly respond to it in a civil manner and have a genuine discussion about it. I'm sure Morgan and the team at the PS Blog would be more responsive and appreciative of critical feedback like that as well.

Yeah, they'll be up until at least next Tuesday morning.

The only one I'd have any qualms about recommending is Brain Challenge. It's really lame. Also, I believe it would take 100+ hours to 100% the trophies.


So the game isn't fun? I guess I'll skip those.

Why aren't the Mega Man games available on Vita? Or are they and I'm not seeing it.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

i have 70 platinums and a ton of 100% but i wont refuse to buy a cheap game because i wont want to 100% it. brain challenge and dungeon hunter are fun to play, but not fun to 100%. but if you can enjoy it for a few hours and its only $1 why let a few missed trophies ruin your chance at cheap fun? life is too short to be OCD and force yourself to complete things, I only do that when I really like something or if its really fast. It wont stop me from having a few 0% trophies or a ton of games under 10% completion.

So it's a fun game just not fun to 100%? I could care less about 100% just wanted some fun, cheapo games.

Also is modern combat that one game by gameloft.

I'm all for lively discussion, but these PS+ arguments went over the line into pointless bickering/bitching at each other and needs to stop. Agree to disagree and move on or else the mods will have to clean it up.

You can play with bots, though the demo should give you an idea of how the community it.

Well, for me, it's because my backlog is in the triple digits and Dungeon Hunter doesn't look all that interesting to me. If it had easy or relatively quick trophies, then I'd probably buy it for a buck.

Earthworm Jim has crazy hard trophies, but I definitely would have bought it if I didn't already own it.

I'm trying to be more picky with what I buy, regardless of price.

If I remember it's just a few "brain training" minigames played over and over. Then again, it's also only $1, so not like you're out much if you buy it and don't like it. But I found it pretty lame.

So it's a fun game just not fun to 100%? I could care less about 100% just wanted some fun, cheapo games.

I think they're all Gameloft games (all the $0.99 cent ones, that is).

When I downloaded the demo a while ago, I was actually doing way better than I do in most FPS MP games. I was probably just playing other guys who had downloaded the demo though. I don't imagine there's a ton of MC: D veterans, though it is a pretty decent game.

Will most likely get Blokus, Dungeon Hunter, and Earthworm Jim for sure.

I'm on the fence about Brain Challenge and TV Show King.

Anyone play the latter? I can't find any reviews for the PS3 version but I assume it is the same game, more or less, as the WiiWare one:
http://www.metacriti...ii/tv-show-king

Definitely mixed reviews there... But these are the only types of games I can get my 15 year-old daughter to play any more so for $1 it might be worth if for that alone.

The only one I already had was Tank Battles and I would definitely recommend that for 99 cents. It is like a super-charged updated version of the old Atari Tank game - worth it for that alone if you grew up playing that game like I did. Having said that, it is a good game in its own right - no need for any nostalgia to enjoy it.

My 10 and 13 year old nieces both loved playing the TV Show King games on Wii. I don't think you can go wrong for $1 even if you do not like game shows.

Blokus is a more than decent puzzle game, I only played it for about an hour, it's hard but fun. I would have been addicted except I kept losing.

Brain Challenge is a "brain training" game with a few mediocre minigames. Definitely the worst of the bunch.

Dungeon Hunter Alliance is the best value in this sale. 10-15 hours of gameplay, it's a very generic but passable dungeon crawler.

Earthworm Jim HD is a fun but dated platformer. Nostalgia glasses will help enhance the value, but still an easy recommend for $1.

Modern Combat: Domination is COD-lite, multiplayer only game (though it can be played with bots. No campaign though). Controls pretty much exactly as COD. Doesn't look nearly as good or have nearly the maps, but it's a fun diversion for $1.

Tank Battles is almost exactly like the tank minigame on WiiPlay, which was by far the best game on that disc. It has a fairly big campaign and I assume it has multiplayer, though I've never dabbled in it.

TV Show King is basically just a TV game show. Keep in mind that not all the questions are about TV, there are a wide range of subjects. I only played this one for less than an hour, but I was actually impressed with the quality of questions in the game.

Uno is the virtual version of the card game. Multiplayer is really the best part of the game, and only if you really like the game (I don't personally care for Uno at all, too much luck involved).

TL;DR - Easily recommend all of them for $1 except for Brain Challenge which I only kinda-sorta recommend because it's so cheap.

Dungeon hunter and modern combat are just watered down games of their genre but for 99c, they are more than worth it.

The one I definitely recommend is blockus. I spent tons of hours on my iPod. I wish I could post a video but Im on my smart phone.

Personally I'm getting all of them because there is no big con for a 99 cent game.
