it's updating right now. i went to refresh the blog and saw the giant Plus symbol flash but the podcast story loaded over it.

It's not. You're just seeing the PS+ banner for what's shown under the PS+ tab on that rotator when the page loads. There's no "updating" for the blog. The article is either up or it's not.

No offense, but how many people work there? They KNOW which games are going to be free, how hard is it to copy and paste some paragraphs about it?


I hear they are waiting as long as possible to build excitement for an awesome announcement of Walking Dead Survival Instinct as the big retail game this month. It's a new release so that should make everyone happy.

Telltale Game's Poker Night 2 is coming to PSN later this month. Full announcement here:

Leading publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games - in partnership with studios spanning the worlds of games, television, and cinema - confirms the next entry in their high-stakes series with Telltale Games' Poker Night 2.

Some of the biggest personalities in gaming, film, and animation are going all-in on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and on PC and Mac from Steam. Other platforms to be announced.

Taking the fifth seat at the table, players will be joined by an all-star cast:

  • Claptrap from Gearbox Software's critically-acclaimed and multi-million selling Borderlands video game series
  • Brock Samson from Adult Swim's animated series The Venture Bros.
  • Sam from the Sam & Max video game and comic book series by Steve Purcell
  • Ash Williams from the cult classic movie Army of Darkness. Groovy!

Players at the table will be assured of a fair hand dealt under the unblinking gaze of a Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System from Aperture Science research facilities. Otherwise known as GLaDOS from the Portal and Portal 2 games by Valve, Inc.!

Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 will offer the chance to win 'Bounty Unlocks': rewards for use within other games when special goals are achieved. With cunning and skill, players will unlock prizes including exclusive skins and heads for use within Borderlands 2 (Xbox 360, PS3 and PC), character accessories for Team Fortress 2 (PC only), unique Xbox 360 Avatar Items, and Premium Themes for dressing up PlayStation 3.

"It's great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead. People might not know that we have a strong history of humor in our games and players are going to find a lot of laughs in Poker Night 2," said Dan Connors, Telltale CEO and Co-Founder, adding "Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe."

Telltale Games' Poker Night 2 will be released late April on the PlayStation Network, PC and the Xbox LIVE Marketplace; other systems to be announced. Poker Night 2 is rated 'M' (Mature) for Violence, Suggestive Themes, Strong Language, Simulated Gambling, and Use of Tobacco by the ESRB.


No offense, but how many people work there? They KNOW which games are going to be free, how hard is it to copy and paste some paragraphs about it?

Maybe they're waiting because an announcement is supposed to be made about something that relates to the updates for this month. Maybe something like the announcement above?

You can't possibly have beaten all of them, I mean Spec Ops, Darksiders, Vanquish etc. you beat them all by the time it arrived on PS+?

Pretty sure those were already announced awhile ago. They're getting Okami HD, Lord Of The Rings: War In The North, Thomas Was Alone, Virtues Last Reward (Vita)

I have an EU account and there's nothing there that sounds too good to me. VLR is awesome but I don't have an extra Vita to use just an EU account for.

Hoping US beats them this month. It would be great to get VLR for Vita here though. I think the only game that could possibly be better is Persona 4.

I thought you were asking for a list of what's coming down each week in April, which we of course don't know yet.

I beat / platinumed a good chunk of the ones offered for PS Plus. The only exceptions are typically things I don't want, don't have the interest in (already platinumed Disgaea 3, so doing portable was never high on my list) or were completely new to plus. In terms of last month...

Spec Ops: The Line (PS3) - Didn't want.
Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention (PS Vita) - Platinumed PS3, so I didn't care (already had it too)
Joe Danger 2: The Movie (PS3) - Don't like racing.
Tekken 6 (PSP; Supported on PS Vita) - Platinumed PS3 version.
The Cave (PS3) - 100%ed and did a bunch of guides.

So I don't think it's impossible to believe others beat a lot of them / most of them. Perhaps not all of them (since some were day 1 freebies), plus the games you just never want to play, but outside of those 2 instances, I don't see whats so hard to believe.

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

I have no sympathy for people who have DLC codes that expired.

With that said, I highly doubt I input my Resistance 3 online pass so I hope that still works. I am surprised that an online pass would have an expiration date. I'm going to go through my collection for anything else I might have missed. If I did miss something though, I'm blaming myself, not someone else.


You do know a lot of games you buy brand new at the store have codes that have already expired? IE if you go buy GOW Saga right now, the GoW Origin codes should have all expired on the 31st of March.

Unless the expiration date of the code is clearly printed on the case/packaging, I have all the sympathy in the world for people who buy brand new games expecting everything advertised on the box. These publishers love people who wander into stores and buy games based on very limited information or no information except what they see on the box. Why, then, is it not ok for those same consumers to expect whatever contents to be valid that's indicated as part of the purchase. Consumers shouldn't be expected to know to research DLC code expirations before buying something.

Ah, I guess it's a matter of playing habits then. I would actually download and try a couple of the games that are free even if I have low interest in them, like Joe Danger. So every update is a party for me :D. I really wanted to like the Cave, but the camera wasn't set up for local co-op and it was a huge letdown for me.
