Don't do it and stream? Or use your Prime sub to download the free streaming music from Amazon for offline listening?

 

 

Except that's not the situation they were setting out.

ps plus for april is trash. just going to let my ps plus expire in may since I don't even play online anymore.

Giving away my 20% discount code. I don't want to just give it away to the quickest person to message me though. So what I will do is just message me and then I will do random number between 1 and how many people message me so if random number was 1 then first person gets it, 2nd then 2nd person who messaged etc... I will check back tonight after work to send the winner.

 

EDIT: winner was selected

winner was VACRMH so here you go

Spoiler

I only see one PS4 title on offer other than Drawn to Death. Am I missing something? The 2 PS4 titles are DtD and Lovers. They didn't give DtD as a one-off bonus, they took up one of the guaranteed, advertised PS+ monthly titles for PS4 (that are advertised as real retail games, not failed internal projects) with their own failed internal project. 

If they didn't superficially make Drawn to Death a $20 game simultaneous to pulling this PS+ shit, they might even get into legal trouble for doing this. It's shady as Fuck

If you want to go that route, there are three other PS4 games on there besides Drawn to Death. You get four games for PS4 this month.

 

They announced it would no longer be a Free to Play game back in November.

I'm fairly certain that they have advertised that they select two unique titles for each of the three platforms. And yeah, I already noted both of the Vita are cross-buy in my first post. 

Anyway my point was to explain the backlash, or why the lineup seems so bad. I'm not arguing that PS+ isn't worth it or complaining myself, I'm just recognizing the obvious: that after advertising how PS+ works, releasing a free to play game through PS+ is incredibly shady, even if they tried to cover their ass with the technicality of making it retail at the exact same time. Trying to squeeze something through on a technicality does not make it any less dishonest an action.

Microsoft is so desperate for people that they offer rewards for using Bing. You just can't stop the Google monopoly.

It is pretty shady, but I would not mind if it was a good game. H1Z1 was suppose to be F2P, but they changed that. So here is hoping they make that a ps plus title.

I don't care about what you think of PS+, but you're intentionally being obtuse and ignoring facts to make a big deal out of this falsehood you're pushing. If you just want to be irrational, then have fun.

I think when my PS+ expires, I'm going to drop it. With the price increase and the fact that I don't play multiplayer on PSN, I don't need both XBL Gold and PS+. The freebies aren't worth it. And, yeah, there's some additional discounts too but doubt it is worth it for me.

Heck, a fair number of the indie titles on both programs end up being on the other one many times. All my friends with MP on X1 too.

Got to go through and see what games I may want to "keep" and buy them when they go on sale.

Really enjoying MLB The Show 17 so far, as the RttS has gotten quite a nice upgrade with a dialog system that lets you better role play as the type of character you want (diva, jerk, humble) that at least provides better bits of story than the poor, forced crap that NBA 2K has been trying to do over the last four years that removed the role playing focus of the mode. That said, the story presentation is a bit rough, as the narration is like a stiff educational documentary that is intentionally generic in not specifically mentioning your player's name. They've also done a good job of improving the feature that lets you play multiple games in a row without having to go back to the menus, which even lets you apply XP to stats between games if you have enough to do so. I can see myself putting in a lot of time, though I've got a handful of games currently and upcoming that will be very demanding of my time.

 

The servers are borked at the moment and makes the card stuff more of a hassle to deal with at the moment. Tried to at least set-up Diamond Dynasty and lost connection midway two or three times, but it luckily saves progress and lets you continue where you left off. I'm not going to bother with it much anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

Anyone play Deus ex on the pro 1080p? I played the game when it launched, really enjoyed it but I traded it in. Now that all the dlc dropped, I wouldn't mind going back at it especially with the PSPro. It's like $20 for the full edition after that %20 promo

I can understand that. Getting caught up in The Show 17 myself when I still have Mass Effect and Nier to finish with Persona 5 next week. At least I'm on vacation next week so I'll be able to get a lot of gaming in.

It seems dlc for a game is a lot more rare for it to ever go on sale. They probably figure since games get cheaper naturally due to being physically in stores that they have to get cheaper, but once they have you hooked that you would pay whatever price they want for the extra content.

 

I don't play their games though. I waited out the storm for Bloodborne dlc and was rewarded.

Think it's more about whether the game will truly be "premium" in how it feels. I didn't play any betas but hopefully they will have balanced things well.

There's also a question of whether the devs feared the game wouldn't do well and made it a "premium" PS+ game to save them from losing a ton of money just from whatever they got from Sony for it.

Only time will tell if it's garbage or not. Just seems to be a lot of doubt due to it originally being a F2P game.

I got every ME game on Day 1 since the first ME game. Andromeda is no different. 

 

I loved all of the first three. They were all amazing and among the most memorable games I've ever played. 

 

Andromeda, however, is such a POS. It is the most tedious, boring game.

 

In short, you go to planets, find a desk, hit a button, scan things, and then talk to people. This is literally the game. It sucks. I wouldn't buy it for $20 because. I think it is that bad. 

 

I've stuck with it as I keep telling myself it will get better. It doesn't get better. Not once have I thought, "Wow. That was pretty awesome." 

 

This game was a total cash grab. Six more months -- one more year -- could not have saved it.

You mean Sony saw that the game they invested way more time and resources than they ever should have couldn't gain any traction in its long running beta despite being featured along AAA titles multiple times each year and decided to recoup what little they could from it by not paying for another game for April?

I've later learned that Bioware's D team made this as the A team (Edmonton) is working on a new IP and the B team (Austin) is doing something else. 

 

This was a total cash grab. 

But the gameplay is so good man, so FUN.  Lol I was saying this thing was a giant POS last week and got flak for it.  Glad you agree.

This game is a broken POS. 

 

Bioware is further misleading consumers by saying big fixes are en route. NOTHING can fix this game. It is fundamentally broken at its core. They would have to literally change everything to fix it. And I'm not just talking about crappy animations. 

 

Buyer beware.

Hope this isn't too spammy, but I just announced my new PS4/Vita game if anyone's interested in checking out the trailer.  It's a challenging 2D platformer, something like Super Mario World with some light RPG elements.
