Bear in mind that if you were to drop the sub then resub you'd regain access to everything you previously had.


Again

It's a bit no-frills compared to FIFA, especially with the bulk of the team names being unlicensed, but I prefer PES 19 to FIFA 18 in terms of gameplay.

So... what you're saying is... the games you get on your paid for PS+ sub are effectively free.

This sounds like a statement I can fully endorse.

Absolutely. It’s the example I used when pointing out how wrong you were wrt HBM, where the games are the main and only benefit.

I’m glad we can draw a line under this now as we are in complete agreement.

PES has vanished, and Detroit: Become Human is in its place.

You should be pleased about that.

I liked it a lot but it’s mechanically the same as the other games. If you don’t like the detective/actionQTE way his games are structured then you’ll not get much enjoyment here. Looks astonishingly good though.

Probably give it a miss then. I haven’t been gripped by one of his games since the Indie Profligacy

That's good news, I tried to buy Detroit when it was on a super cheap deal from Amazon, but they magically ran out of the cheap versions and it was only available at full price, after I bought it.

I never bothered trying to buy it again, and now I get it for free!

Horizon Chase Turbo moves along nicely but there’s no detail in the tracks and it’s just a bit boring.

I really enjoyed Detroit: Become Human. It helped that it looked brilliant and several of the characters were genuinely likable. I haven't played any DavidCage'em'up since Fahrenheit, so I found the various methods of interaction to be surprisingly interesting and fun.

I have Wipeout on PS4 and Sniper Elite 4 on PC.

WORST MONTH EVER.

I really should turn my PS4 Pro on, it may have died of boredom or the capacitors might have gone bad.

Arkham Knight looks utterly fucking incredible--it's probably one of the prettiest games of this generation even now--and has a really good story with an interesting take on the Batman and Joker relationship; it's probably worth playing for that aspect alone. As an Arkham game it's definitely not the best mind - the Batmobile stuff is generally annoying and the combat eventually escalates to a degree of complexity that's genuinely just fucking irritating. 90% of it though is just 'more of the same' Arkham stuff, which I genuinely mean as a massive compliment because the core of it's still incredible fun, so if you haven't played one of these for a while it's very recommended.

I loved the first Darksiders game, even though it was pretty derivative, but the second one just bored the tits off me within a couple of hours of playing it. I can't even remember for sure what annoyed me about it. I think it might've been the ridiculous surfeit of loot that had to be constantly examined to see which thing had higher numbers than the other thing, plus the general lack of focus in the level design. It just felt like they tried to throw another couple of genres onto the already teetering pile that the original game was balancing and it finally collapsed under the weight. So, needless to say I've no interest in the third game, although I imagine there is some fun to be had with it if you enjoyed the previous installment.

You should send it to me. You owe it to the hobby of gaming to ensure as many people get to play games as possible.

It was pitched pretty well for the majority of the game I felt, it was just nearer the end that the memory load required to keep in your head all the moves required to beat the myriad of enemy types it would throw at you simultaneously got completely ridiculous. In hindsight I should've knocked the difficulty down at that point to keep my enjoyment up, but I'd finished the actual story by then and was just mopping up side quests and whatnot so wasn't too bothered. Well, that and the fact that idiotically I often seem to flat-out forget difficulty settings even exist e.g. getting the shit kicked out of me multiple times by the Minotaur in AC: Odyssey a week ago, and only being randomly reminded by a load screen tip way after I'd given up that I could've dropped the difficulty down. I then completely forgot again for a another couple of days and only remembered after narrowly beating the Cyclops in a similar encounter.

tl;dr: I'm a tit.

I played it last night and loved it. It can get super tense, batting is a challenge, as is decent fielding. It is great!

Reminder that 'Black Friday' is next month and you'll probably see some sorta deal for PSN renewals at that point

You won’t get much cheaper than that. Still not enough for me to renew I don’t think. I don’t play the games and don’t play online.

I finally remembered to cancel the auto-renew on my PS Plus.

I'm sure it's good value for some folks but just ended up making no sense for me whatsoever.

Meh. I never got very far in the Nioh demo--I think I even retried it after my Bloodborne adventures and still got hilariously murdered--and after the boring experience of Outlast I'm in no hurry to try it's sequel.

No way. I'd just sold my physical copy of Nioh on eBay and wondered if I'd done the right thing.

Might just take the plunge as I like horror games and Outlast 2 sounds good.

Outlast 1 is great: scary, creepy, great characters and doesn’t overstay it’s welcome much at around 4 hours. There’s a few really good scares in there and some body horror stuff if you’re into that. On the other hand Outlast 2 is a steaming turd of a game that fails on all levels; plus the story requires you read some comics or something to understand what’s going on. It’s just terrible.

Nioh on the other hand is fucking brilliant! The combat, level design and bosses are all top notch for anyone who doesn’t have spacky hands and wants an actual challenge.

Ah, right. Disappointing the horror game is pap.

I'm up to the Quick Icy Lady on Nioh, is that about half way through?
