That was for a years sub and you didn't find any time to play any of the games in the whole year?   

Sorry to hear about your loss.

There was lots of drinking and I've been buying 2 or 3 retro machines a month so I just haven't had time  :-[ I would have hoped there would have been more of a range of games on the PSN Plus.

The biggest problem I had with Last of Us is was supposed to be this really immersive experience but the AI wasn't up to it and when you had to engage in combat, the combat system wasn't great, and the stages where you had to snipe from an upstairs room felt tagged on... and so much walking only to find it was a complete waste of time. I don't know, personally, I was just underwhelmed by the game. Oh, plus it would also have been nice to have the option to kill Ellie at the end for being so damned annoying  :laugh: Still, at least it had and ending unlike Rage  :laugh:

Personally, I think the PSN+ is phenomenal value even though I don't have enough time to really play many of them. And even though on the PS3 a lot of the best games I already own. Having games like Uncharted 3 on there is phenomenal value for money if you haven't already played it.

I originally just signed up because Ico + Colossus for the PS3 were on there and it cost about the same to buy them second hand as a year's subscription.

Like Carnivac, I activate every game even on the consoles I don't yet have. And so when I got a PS4, the only game I "purchased" was Watchdogs as I got it in a bundle with the console, and yet I've already got 8 really good games because of the PSN+ subscription.

Xbox Live now has a similar thing - the Gold subscription now gives you free games each month too...

Well I'm a little rusty at it now, but apparently every ball can be hit for 6. It's a little bit like playing Grand Prix Driver in the Amstrad except your dodging the Cars going at a certain speed, Great Fun!  :D

* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

Last current-gen game I played was indeed the new Wolfenstein. Only because i loved the previous titles in the series. I enjoyed it quite a bit to tell you the truth. Can't judge the graphics as I don't focus on them that much, but they looked nice. Didn't feel like a next-gen game, just more and better of the same, but I had a blast. Not too easy, not too hard, took me several days of trying till I finished it. But apart from that... ugh.

Only title I'm looking forward to is No Man's Sky:
No Man's Sky
No Man's Sky

This should be interesting...

PS Oh, as for the Zone: courtesy of a donour who wants to remain anonymous, I'm in possession o f the static portion of the site. Not the forum, unfortunately. Still trying to decide what to do with it...

I agree, and so long as you maintain your ssubscription you never lose access to the games. There are so many games I hardly need to buy any.

I liked UC3, but it's quite buggy, and I don't think it was anywhere near as good as the first one.

I've played Resogun and completed Dead Nation Apocalypse.. Haven't really had much chance to get into the rest of them.

Don't Starve is really good fun. I had to choose to stop playing as I was playing it non stop for the first week I owned my PS4 (and I was on holiday, so that's a LOT of time!)


The initial few days you die very quickly until you figure out how to survive. My current save is at 100 days which seemed like a good point to stop! (A game day is 8 real world minutes)
