Bioshock 2 is an awesome game and I will definitely play through it again now that I have the chance. That being said, EU PS+ wins again with Arkham City, Vanquish, and Limbo. I don't understand why they can't give us the same games as the EU Plus.


You know, people in EU will complain with what free games we get here as well. It's a double-edged sword. :lol:

Hmmm....Puddle is 3.50 for PS3 and 2.80 for Vita.
The PS3 one has a demo. Anybody play the Vita version?
Might be fun with twisting the Vita around or incredibly frustrating.

"Quality" needs parameters before it can be properly utilized in comparing the games.

Popular Retail seems to be it or at least retail.

Course, YMMV. Personally, I've been fine with the quality of US titles. In fact, recently finished Quantum Conundrum. Enjoyed it.


I agree, though I wish there was more games I don't have. The last one I wanted that I didn't have was Double Dragon and before that I think it was Shank 2...

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

The Full PS+ Update for this week:

It may be gift-giving season, but PlayStation Plus delivers gaming gifts all year round, and this week is no exception. While many of you might still be getting acquainted with the PS Vita Plus games, PS3 gamers can welcome BioShock 2 into their Instant Game Collection. Download it for free if you’re a Plus member when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday.

Don’t forget that the Music Unlimited offer is still on as well. You can pick up the 1 year subscription for only $12! If you have questions on the service, you may want to check out this handy FAQ. To take advantage of the offer, you’ll need to subscribe from your PS3 or PS Vita Plus enabled account.

Don’t have PlayStation Plus? Go to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita or click here to get access.

December 4th PlayStation Plus Update

BioShock 2 (PS3)

Free for Plus members


Years after the events of the original BioShock, a monster has begun snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Players step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture (and recent star of PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale), the Big Daddy, as they travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers.

Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1 (PS3)

10% off for PlayStation Plus members (Regular price: $59.99, PS Plus Price: $53.99)


An amazing value, this collection features Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, L.A. Noire, and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition. Plus members can enjoy a 10% discount on this new release to PSN.

Puddle (PS3 and PS Vita Versions)

50% off for PlayStation Plus members (PS3 Plus Price: $3.50; PS Vita Plus Price: $2.80)


Experience a brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle/platform game where you must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world. It’s a unique twist on the puzzle genre and both PS3 and PS Vita versions are 50% off. Please note, this game is not cross-buy or cross-play enabled; so choose the best version for you, or if you’re a big fan, buy both!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s update. Tune in next week where we’ll have another fantastic title to keep you gaming with PlayStation Plus. Head to the PlayStation Plus forums to continue the conversation and find other Plus fans, and make sure you make your voice heard in the comments below. As always, thanks for your feedback and we’ll see you next week!

As someone who played a LOT of Disgaea 2 would I like this or not? I loved it but I'm really not interested in another 400+ hour game.

I hate that splash screen so much. It's way too fucking loud. Love the game though.

I quite like it because of the song itself. The splash screen for Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is the worst by far due to the loud sound effects that are used at the beginning for this loud cacophony of noise.

I've noticed that almost all the splash screens have volumes set to max. I'd love a volume slider where I can set it to about 1/4 of the current volume. The worst is the Battlefield game I have. It's just a rumbling bass. I'm pretty sure every time it comes on my sub is going to blow.

It's more due to the type of music that's used. There are plenty that use low key or pleasant songs that don't feel like you're in a silent house and you've accidentally changed to the extremely loud channel on the TV that scares the crap out of you.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Pain are set at different volumes despite one featuring a rock song and the other featuring a cacophony of music, sound effects, and voice clips.

Others I'll have to record are Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rag Doll Kung-Fu: Fists of Plastic, Beat Hazard Ultra, and Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chickens.

The Awesomenauts splash screen makes good use of its awesome theme song:

i already had Biohazard 5 with DLC, Dungeon Defenders, Quantum Conundrum, Bioshock 2 and alot others, but ps+ is still such a great value and def worth it.

Breakfuss Bioshock2 is its own story, i think it is totally independent from Bio1. no idea tho

But you can also use a non-propriety external hard drive to store your data on the Wii U (say an affordable TB drive) or a large SD card which are pretty cheap so it's a step in the right direction.

I just filled up my 500GB on my ps3. It's mainly due to PS+ so no complaints but man, it is easy to eat up memory these days.

I would say that you should play Bioshock 1 first, the story and atmosphere is great. IMO it is way better than Bioshock 2, which for me is more like an expansion of Bio 1.

It takes place a few years after Bio1. It ties back to 1 in a few places (one achievement for sure) and just as a general setting Rapture is much more unstable than it was in 1 (Structurally and politically).

One could argue that you can play the lesser 2 first and then play the superior 1 afterwards.
But the original really sets the mood and atmosphere and story so you can appreciate how their society has fallen in the sequel.

If you missed Bioshock, I highly recommend running out to grab yourself a copy as soon as possible. Easily my favorite non-RPG game this gen, and probably on my top 10 all time. I liked the sequel as well, but to this day I still feel that a the single player and story development suffered because they were busy trying to tack on multiplayer. Also, the lack of Ken Levine is noticeable. I'm pretty happy with the decision to leave multiplayer out of Infinite. More companies need to realize that multiplayer doesn't have to be in every game.

I would just wait for infinite to go on sale, since it comes free with that.

I think this is why you should play the first one before the sequel. It's not that the story won't make sense. It's that the character of Rapture is so different in the sequel you won't be drawn into the story as easily or feel any need to keep playing in the weaker moments of the story. And anyone who's played it, and enjoyed it, will know what I mean when I refer to the city as an actual character in the story.

I'll get Bioshock 2, even though I have it on the 360 that I got from Blockbuster awhile back. I didn't know there was DLC in Bioshock 2?!

Maybe I'll just buy the DLC on the PSN when I have the money. I prefer getting DLC from the PSN.

Well the looks of things. I probably should get a hard drive larger than 500GB.

Maybe, I'll get a 750GB. When it comes to upgrading from that, hopefully I'll make it to where about 500GB of data will be left to be backed up. I heard you could only back-up 500GB at a time using the PS3's back utility tool.

If you're referring to Morgan's comment, he is a customer/public relations employee for Sony. He gets paid to say that every week.

But if you're asking if I think we'll get 6 games this month, I don't know. I think we'll definitely get 4 or 5. My guess is 3 PS3 games and 1 Vita game for the month. Also just noticed that Christmas falls on a Tuesday, I wonder if they'll do a Monday or Wednesday update that week so they can give everyone Tuesday off.

all the games expire after a short while of being available. We usually get a little bit of warning when that will be. However, if you're already signed up for PS+ you can add them to your download list and they'll be available for as long as you're a PS+ member. (You can do this with the Vita games too on your PS3)

They expire when they're announced to expire, which is different for every game. RE5 Gold Edition will no longer be free for PS+ with tomorrow's update, so you'll have to grab it before then to get it. Yes, you can play it with Move.

I really enjoyed Bioshock 2. I didn't hate the first, but I did, and still do, hate the sheer amount of praise it gets. It's nowhere near the revolutionary title people think it is. System Shock 2 was a much more involving experience. It's a cool idea with a great setting, but it's far from gaming's savior.

Infinite does look really neat, though. Hope it's good.
