Put in a couple of hours of Just Cause 3 last night. It certainly gives you loads of fun tools for blowing shit up but I found myself running out of explodey type ammo pretty quickly and taking out a generator with a machine gun just feels a bit crap. Also, I always seemed to end up running round a location like a twat searching for the last billboard or fuel tank or something which is annoying; does the game actually guide you towards these in some way and I'm just being a blind idiot? Either way, I suspect the repetitiveness of it all will kill it for me before I'm anywhere close to the end but I don't mind playing it while it's being fun given that it was 'free'.

For some reason it took me a while to notice as well but it actually shows all the billboards and stuff on the map.

Yeah, even then they're sometimes tricky to find but you can usually work it out.

Pro tip if you're running out of things that explode - steal a helicopter or tank.

Ah, cool, I'll look out for that. Although it'll get annoying dipping in and out of the map constantly, it would be nice if there was some kind of indicator on the HUD.

It's not too bad if you just stick a waypoint marker on it.

Getting a VR game is quite the surprise, pity it's some multiplayer bollocks. Also, the fact that the studio behind it is effectively dead by Sony's hand means it's a bit of a freebie from their point of view and probably not the start of a trend.

Infamous has always seemed like the most generic of generic open world nonsense, though I'd be happy to hear good stuff from anyone who's actually played it instead of my witless mutterings?

Hatoful Boyfriend looks cool and I'll definitely be giving it a shot. Though I worry that as a sort of satire of dating games it'll still include too much of the genre conventions to hook me.

We Are Doomed I know nothing of: what's it's deal then?

Oh, and Child of Light: played the demo ages ago, hated it. It wasn't really my type of game though and I was in the minority in not liking it so I reckon most people will think it a good addition.

I liked it - but it had the benefit of being one of the first big open world games on the PS4 and has some really nice graphical effects for the powers (i remember the firework one being really good) , however this was in the first few months after the PS4's launch and I dont know how well it will have aged.

Its also one of those games that once you've played through once (or until you get bored of it) thats it - you'll never go back to it

Photo mode was also a 'new' thing for this and was highly praised at the time

I also never really 'got' child of light so very little for me on there this month (although like you I'm interested in Hatoful (pigeon boyfriend sim!) - although to be fair i'd be interested in anything by Devolver

Yes but for some reason they are now including it again as a 'bonus' game - I guess with the shift in price they are going to look at making the PS+ list look impressive but if i was still on a PS3 i'd be pissed off with the selection for this month

Ah. ps3 owners had more than enough aaa games, didn';t they?
would have liked to try the psvita version of handball 2016 btw.. always wonder if those 'smaller sports' games are fun (apparantly rugby the world cup was horrible? (see Rugby Challenge, International http://worldofstuart.excellentcontent.c ... /rugby.htm )

i think btw they have positioned That's you a bit differenly anyway than a normal psn game , more communication etc.. next to it being available for a longer time..

but pigeons.. interesting

The aesthetic for We Are Doomed is facking horrible. I'd bloody love a new Geo Wars but I couldn't play this for very long before I had to turn it off.

So, Hatoful Boyfriend's a hell of a thing then. At the same time, it's somehow much more and much less weird than I was expecting because for a lot of it you're just doing school stuff and talking to folk; except sometimes you remember that the 'folk' are all different types of pigeon. To get a single ending only really takes about 20 minutes but apparently
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
there's like a whole secret story called Bad Boys Love that only unlocks after you've got some of the normal endings. The secret story is longer than the main game and explains the entire backstory to how this world came about and why a human girl is at a school for intelligent birds. It's all post-apocalyptic and (even more) bonkers and grimdark murdery and I think I owe it to myself to at least unlock that story to see what it's all about.


Also: whenever the dialogue would usually say "everybody" or "anybody" it instead says "everybirdie" and "anybirdie". Incredible.

My Little Pony has been doing that for years, bro!

"Everypony", "anypony", etc.

Heh, and I was just warming up to the possibility of finally playing my physical copy of that MSG game. Hue looks like my kind of thing (and may even already be on my Steam wishlist) and I'll likely give Amnesia a shot seeing as it's there.

Huh, for some reason while reading about this elsewhere I've only just realised that it's not the 'teaser' MSG game we're getting here but the full-fat entire MSGV experience. I assumed they'd never give that away for free so just jumped to that conclusion in my head. Which begs the question: do I play my disc copy of Ground Zeroes before moving onto this or just go straight for The Phantom Pain? Or not even bother TPP? I confess that the alleged size of TPP puts me off as I'm not sure I can be arsed spending that amount of time playing it.

It's a bit of a sandbox, you can just doss around in it until you've had enough.

Is it at all worth playing GZ if I'm going to plat TPP? Or is one just a warm-up that's rendered redundant by the other?

Perhaps if you're going to try and follow the "story" then it might make sense to do that but otherwise, nah.

I’d day that GZ is a must play if you’re at all interested in the story to come in TPP.

But since TPP is a 50 hour+ opus from start to finish and you’ve got the staying power of a disgraced MP, then I wouldn’t bother if I were you. You can enjoy what’s on offer without knowing a bit more of the backstory. You get a recap of sorts at the beginning anyway.

Is anyone actually interested in the 'story' of a Metal Gear Solid game?

Wait, where's this coming from? If I enjoy a game I play it until the end. The fact that I acknowledge being shit at games doesn't mean you can start parlaying that into whatever other random insult you fancy chucking at me.
