PS+ is good for the semi-casual gamers, since they don't buy every single game just because it's cheap.

 

Since I don't own bloodborne or ratchet(or deus ex). this makes it a good month. Really hate the constant bitching about how the games suck every month, specially when it's those who own the games already and so feel offended that a game they own already is free.

 

People like different types of games, so one persons good month is anothers bad month.

This got me curious about how many PS+ games I played from the last year. (That I hadn't already bought myself)

 

Day of the Tentacle, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Abzu, Killing Floor 2, Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry.

 

I really don't get a lot of value out of that. Good thing there's discounts.

Anybody played Blade & Bones? Reviews I've read say it's really good as an open-ended Metroidvania, but it fails at the one thing it tries to focus on; sharpened Souls-like gameplay.

  • We all knew this would happen eventually. (Though I thought it would be around the time a new console is announced. We would have heard at least some concrete rumors by now if a new console was to be released even by end of 2020. And with Nintendo's late entry and the enhanced Pro & OneX, this gen will probably last a little longer than generally expected.)

 

  • Just a warning but, 360 GWG games will eventually end as well. Especially with a BC requirement since, as we all know, 360 BC is dead already. :D

 

  • We do now receive VR games here and there from Plus, which was an addition we weren't paying extra for already. By next year there will be a stable of older VR games that developers will probably be happy to give thru Plus for new revenue. My guess is that we will be getting at least one VR additional game per month by then.

 

  • We will still see some PS3 and Vita games that are cross-buy with the PS4 games they give in the future.

 

  • Opinion, but the real worth of Plus is (besides MP) is the discounts. The discounts EASILY give me return on investment. Most here are probably the same, you don't follow this thread to see what the Plus games are each month. Besides, half the time I already own the games anyway, which doesn't bother me since I most probably got a sweet discount on it. The other half is cake.

PlayStation Plus is making it easy not to renew my subscription. Besides being tempted by sales I shouldn't be getting in the first place, I've played maybe 3-4 of the free games, total. Either I already own them or I have no interest in them. I bought Bloodborne: Complete Edition for $13.99 and Claire: Extended for $3.74 and still haven't played either. Ratchet will go on my backlog for the non-immediate future. It's just "meh" for me all the way around.

 

So PS+ is a bad value because you are unable to stop wasting your money on games you aren't going to play.  Got it.

i'm confused... I have chocobos and i haven't gotten to the carnivals yet [still]. You get chocobos as soon as you enter chap 3 if you want. right near the first outpost... prompto even says he wants to go there first.


Sorry, the limited time ones (Festivals probably more accurate. The Assassins one & one before that). I didn't know there were other carnivals, sorry.

Hot Take: Nex Machina is a good game and should be bought.

They should treat PSVR like a separate system. If they're only doing 2 PS4 games a month and one of them is VR, non-VR people are going to be pissed.

Like chip said above, it's only a good value if you plan on taking advantage of the sales. I don't do multiplayer and I barely get any use of out of the free monthly games. It's my own personal decision, people are free to make up their mind and do as they please.

I'm interested in this too. I seem to remember looking up reviews on metacritic & passing because I couldn't find anyone I knew I usually agreed with who reviewed it.

Hoping some PSN credit deal will pop up this week with the 15 back on 100 thing going on.

Yeah, I meant that I think there will be an additional VR game per month by then besides the 2 regular PS4 games.

My PS+ is up in April & since I never played Uncharted MP, or any other game's MP, I think I'm not going to renew it for the first time since it was introduced on ps3. I can't afford to right now, & that plays a part in my decision, but it is getting me to think about things from a perspective I didn't consider before, & those funds could be used on other more pressing things, at least for a while. I usually end up already owning most of the games that I care about in the free games portion, & I will never play the others.

Sony's sent me a PM, as a player of Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, with a code for some items for Everybody's Golf. It's probably going out to others that have both.

Or it's like the current system where they're an added bonus on top of the other games offered.

Yeah, I was just going by that tweet that was posted earlier.

 

 

Who knows what'll actually happen one year from now, though.

PSVR games don't count as part of the six games per month, so that tweet doesn't really mean anything on that subject.

But there also aren’t PSVR games every month...like next month, for instance.

It seems like in a year PS+ will be quite different from what it is now. I don't know what it will be. But this seems like just giving fair warning to the few people who subscribe just for PS3 and/or Vita games that they probably don't want to renew.

Having a hard time making a decision on what to spend my ps credit on. Last week it would have been easy, as I only had $14, & have waited on What Remains of Edith Finch to go on sale again. I was apprehensive the more I read it was more like an interactive story, in which you couldn't fail. I have disliked Mario Odyssey because of the lack of challenge, so not sure if I'd feel the same with this game, which I had no expectations for, unlike a Mario game.

Then, someone mentioned that PS rewards points expired in March, so I looked and saw I could pay like $2 for the points to get a $10 PSN credit. I did this because I've had lots of points expire before but I wasnt aware they sold PSN cards, or that they sold points for .o1 cent per point. Anyway, now I have enough to get Uncharted Lost Legacy since it's on sale now (which is an exclusive, so I couldn't get on X1 using MS Rewards credit, which is a possibility in my case with Edith Finch if it goes on sale before my Xbox credit expires). I dislike digital versions usually, but I doubt I'll dislike this game, even though I've yet to complete Uncharted 4.

Reading the context I provided, can anyone offer advice on choosing between these 2 games to help me make that decision? I'd especially like to hear from anyone who enjoyed both games. Thanks.

Uncharted LL, I would rather just read a book than play Edith Finch.

So I havnt had a ps4 in a long while. Over a year. I caved and traded my 3DS and everything in for one.

I want South Park really bad but I dunno if I need the gold edition or nah. I’m also not having much luck on finding out if I can still snag The Stick of Truth or nah.

Can anyone help?

What remains of Edith Finch is a walking sim and I don't mean that in a negative way. I actually really enjoy them if done right but like you said you can get it on a non-playstation platform.

 

Uncharted however has more replayability and is more of a "game" and is exclusive. I'd go with that.

It's an interesting predicament. I love the Uncharted games, and The Lost Legacy is no different (plus you don't need to complete U4 to enjoy it). It sounds like you might want to wait for the physical though. Edith only has a limited physical release so you're probably leaning more towards digital, but you can play on either X or PS (double the chance of another sale coming along). Since you've got more than enough for Uncharted, I guess you should go in that direction, and hopefully use your Microsoft credit on Edith before it expires (it seems like PS and X sales usually go pretty close together).

Picked one up at GS. Both the Stick of Truth and Towelie codes worked a couple of days ago.
