PS+

in the month of November we’ll have The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth and Steamworld Dig on PS4, Frozen Synapse Prime and Luftrausers on PS3, and The Hungry Horde and Escape Plan on PS Vita.

In December, we’re excited to add Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition and Secret Ponchos to PS4’s IGC lineup. As one of the biggest fighting games, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition is the first AAA Blu-ray title to join the Instant Game Collection for PS4, and we think you’ll really enjoy playing it since DRIVECLUB PS Plus Edition is not available yet. For January’s PS4 lineup, we’re adding the hit games inFAMOUS First Light and The Swapper for PS4.

phasing out ps3 there

Steve 'n' Seagulls and Flock of Van Dammes (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 5 November 2014 20:18 (four years ago) link

yeah, definitely. i may break on PS4 if there's a good enough deal on Black Friday, but nothing's jumping out at me yet

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 November 2014 20:27 (four years ago) link

Injustice and inFAMOUS sound like good additions for new system buyers

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 November 2014 20:28 (four years ago) link

I still haven't played Binding of Isaac so I'm excited for that one.

polyphonic, Wednesday, 5 November 2014 20:29 (four years ago) link

inFAMOUS sucks, don't get it. Redbox it at best.

antexit, Wednesday, 5 November 2014 21:40 (four years ago) link

It'll be free in January anyway!

Nhex, Wednesday, 5 November 2014 21:43 (four years ago) link

I'm playing inFamous at the moment, and I think it's ok, but I'm glad to hear it's only about 10 hours long cos it's starting to get fairly tedious, and I've just cleared the top 'island'. Don't know that I could face the expansion, but nice to see a couple of non-Indies coming up for PS4.

I might have messed up my experience by my normal videogame compulsion to level up as much as possible before doing too many story missions. I found by the time I got all the powers there was nothing more to interest me in the game. Also I cannot fucking STAND your character, a 90's-style "whatever man" 'tude dude that you're forced to endure through umpteen unskippable cutscenes.

antexit, Thursday, 6 November 2014 14:25 (four years ago) link

one month passes...

Titan Attacks is free with Plus. It's fun, get it.

polyphonic, Saturday, 13 December 2014 05:49 (four years ago) link

i enjoyed it for about an hour. Got past the first four bosses then let it go; didn't feel like wasted time. Pseudo RPG space invaders with upgraded gen attackers past each level; I imagine by level 10 you're in bullet hell mode.

a stupid red mute juggalo (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 13 December 2014 05:51 (four years ago) link

There's a current deal at Target - you can get a Black Friday bundle for $340 ($60 off) w/Last of US HD and GTA V, in addition to a free $20 PSN card (and from what I hear, an ADDITIONAL $10 PSN card as well w/the included games). Really tempting me... I think I'm gonna go to the store after work to agonize over the cardboard box.

Nhex, Thursday, 18 December 2014 18:47 (four years ago) link

Considering I have probably over 100 games in my 360/PS3/3DS backlog this is a bad idea. BUT THE DEAL.

Nhex, Thursday, 18 December 2014 18:51 (four years ago) link

can't play knack w/out a ps4

bizarro gazzara, Thursday, 18 December 2014 19:02 (four years ago) link

I broke. They were out of GTAV/TLOS bundles, but I got one with the Pick One digital download instead (one of Destiny, Far Cry 4, NBA 2K15, Little Big Planet 3). Huzzah!

Nhex, Friday, 19 December 2014 16:48 (four years ago) link

which download did you go for?

bizarro gazzara, Friday, 19 December 2014 17:45 (four years ago) link

Not sure yet if I'm gonna pull the trigger or just sell the card on eBay. Leaning towards FC4 if I do pick

Nhex, Friday, 19 December 2014 18:14 (four years ago) link

fc4 is fun, I'm playing it now. if you've played fc3 it's very similar - fixes a lot of the problems of that game but somehow I'm not enjoying it as much so far.

bizarro gazzara, Friday, 19 December 2014 18:49 (four years ago) link

lol him and the brother suck. still had fun playing it, the mechanics are pretty tight (excluding the lame banksy graffiti shit). liked it enough to grab first light which i'll prob like more since the neon stuff was the best part and she's a much more tolerable main char

FYI, a bunch of PS4 launch titles are on sale at Best Buy this week for $20 - Infamous: Second Son, Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall. May bite.

Nhex, Monday, 5 January 2015 05:44 (four years ago) link

I think Second Son is free on PS+ this month.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 5 January 2015 07:47 (four years ago) link

I think it's the Infamous dlc/expansion thing that's free on PS+ - First Light.

CraigG, Monday, 5 January 2015 11:14 (four years ago) link

ah - that makes sense.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 5 January 2015 15:48 (four years ago) link

it's expandalone, right? still would rather play the main title first, but i don't think you need it

Nhex, Monday, 5 January 2015 16:00 (four years ago) link

I believe so.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 5 January 2015 16:48 (four years ago) link

only one post on ILX to date mentions driveclub and then it's still only a C&P of a press release.

||||||||, Saturday, 17 January 2015 11:39 (four years ago) link

I just picked it up (in Hong Kong, for about half the price) and I'm enjoying it so far in a stripped down Gran Turismo kind of way. Haven't got onto much of the social stuff, partly since I don't know anyone else with it. I haven't tested out whether the disastrous online problems have been fixed yet either.

gawping at the rain physics on the windscreen is worth the price of admission alone.

i've got it. looks truly amazing but it feels pretty restrictive and dull compared to forza horizon 2, which I bought a couple of weeks before and is the most fun I've ever had with a driving game. the online component seemed to be working fine every time I've played but fuck a multiplayer imo

Super Mega Baseball, dudes

Best baseball game since Ken Griffey SNES

Active PlayStation Network Accountholders:

If you participated in the PSN “Welcome Back” program that followed the restoration of PSN service on May 15, 2011, you can get one of these three benefits:
• One free game for your PS3 or PSP (see the Claim Form for the games you can select), or
• Three free PS3 themes (see the Claim Form for the themes you can select), or
• One free subscription to PlayStation Plus online services for 3 months (this option is available only if you are not already a PlayStation Plus subscriber).

If you did not participate in the PSN “Welcome Back” program following the restoration of PSN service on May 15, 2011, you can submit a claim for two of the above benefit options.

Up to $10 million ($4 million for “Welcome Back” Participants, and $6 million for “Welcome Back” Non-Participants) in these benefits will be available (calculated at $9 per valid claim for one benefit or $18 for valid claims for two benefits) until the total available amounts have been reached. If your claim is received after the $10 million cap has been reached, you can get a free subscription to PlayStation Plus online services for one month instead (whether or not you are already a PlayStation Plus subscriber).

In addition, if you paid other companies for certain media services (specifically, Netflix or Hulu Plus) that you could not access through the PSN while the PSN was temporarily offline from April 20, 2011 through May 14, 2011 (the “PSN Offline Period”), you can get:

• Three free PS3 themes (see the Claim Form for the themes you may select), or
• A free subscription to PlayStation Plus online services for 3 months (this option is available only if you are not already a PlayStation Plus subscriber).

You must provide documentation in the form of credit card or other payment receipts or statements that you paid Netflix or Hulu Plus for media services during the PSN Offline Period that you could have accessed through the PSN but for the outage. You are not eligible for this benefit if you received a credit or reimbursement offsetting your payment, and you must also certify that you did not access those media services during the PSN Offline Period through some other means, such as by streaming media through internet-connected computers or ordering it on disc through the mail. Up to $1 million in benefits for such claims will be available (calculated at $9 per valid claim).

knack?

am0n, Friday, 23 January 2015 21:05 (four years ago) link

no ps4 games apparently!
dead nation, infamous, LBP, stardust HD, rain, puppeteer, "invizimals", god of war hd and a pile of PSP games

Sounds like a forks display name (forksclovetofu), Friday, 23 January 2015 21:49 (four years ago) link

quick heads-up: if you buy the dying light season pass for $20 from gamestop.com at the moment you'll end up with a code for the full game. whoops.

ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ (am0n), Monday, 16 February 2015 22:13 (four years ago) link

lil urbane (Jordan), Monday, 16 February 2015 22:17 (four years ago) link

eu doesn't deserve it, na made demons souls a hit

ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ (am0n), Monday, 16 February 2015 22:22 (four years ago) link

that would probably sell me on the system

the plight of y0landa (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 17 February 2015 00:48 (four years ago) link

Bloodborne is the only reason I'm buying it, so their little plan worked.

lil urbane (Jordan), Tuesday, 17 February 2015 01:57 (four years ago) link

lol @ the order reviews

ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ (am0n), Thursday, 19 February 2015 19:24 (four years ago) link

the "Ready At Dawn, finish by lunch" joke got me

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Thursday, 19 February 2015 21:16 (four years ago) link

Ok I've got one of these now, for a crazy low price thanks to a friend moving to Japan and selling all his stuff off. So far it's a Destiny prettifier, but there's a ton of games I've acquired via PS+ over recent months which I've mostly not really heard of. Any recommendations amongst that stuff?

JimD, Saturday, 21 February 2015 18:24 (four years ago) link

easy way to remember:

X marks the spot that you want to press to go forward, O means nOOOO!
