I've never played a Metal Slug but the art always looked enticing. I'm stoked to get the chance as a freebie, woot!

Prcko, it obviously had time to 'heat up' while it ws pending, so say it was at 300 then, that extra 110 came in 3 minuts :)

Normally, I would not be much of a fan of getting a PSP game in instant game collection, but for Metal Slug I'll certainly make an exception. This one had better have Ralf in it.

Edit: It does! Win!

We just got Saints Row 3 and BF3....
generalthadeape  +   420d ago
Just finished Saints Row 3 with a platinum trophy last night-- I can't believe how much fun I had with that game-- it really was "over the top".

Downloaded & installed Battlefield 3 when it arrived on PS+-- haven't played that game at all since participating in the Beta way back when.

I can't decide whether to hop on board with that game or go back to Black OPs 2 to play online with my son who lives out of state.

I have another son who lives in the same state as me that prefers the BF series.

Screw it, I'll probably end up playing BOTH!

I loved this game.

very good

Metal Slug really went downhill after 3, wish the original devs would make a new game with HD sprites.
CalvinKlein  +   420d ago
Id love an hd 16 bit megamanX game, or a 1080P HD one would be awesome too.
PurpHerbison  +   420d ago
Not bad, not bad at all.
S2Killinit  +   420d ago
good stuff

If I re-sign up for Playstation Plus will I get access to all of the older games that have been released since the service first started?
MrBeatdown  +   420d ago
You'd regain access to all the games you had downloaded through Plus.

They aren't going to give you everything ever offered in Plus.
PimpDaddy  +   420d ago
That sucks. I did a 3 month trial at the beginning of the year so I at least should get back what I downloaded before. But it would be cool if I could get everything they ever offered in the US store.

Edit: Also how does somebody disagree with an honest question???

SHIT. EU PS Plus rips US one apart!
JAM_brz  +   420d ago
Man, this game it's something that wasn't been announced in the beggining of the month, so its a "Plus" for the PS Plus. The games for August have not been announced yet, so I think it's ok.
TVippy  +   418d ago
I'm not sure it's a BONUS at all.

Trying to figure out why people are so hyped for Metal Slug XX, is this the game in question?

kupomogli  +   420d ago
Doesn't seem like people are super hyped up about it, but it is a good game that's free on the PS+.

Metal Slug is pretty much SNK's version of Contra and it's a good series. The series has actually fared much better than Contra has as well, as after Contra 3 it's debatable whether the rest of the series sucks or not. The later Metal Slug games aren't as good as the first titles, but they're still pretty good.

If Sony is going to continue giving the US PS+ members older compared to the Europe members though, I would have rather had Metal Slug Anthology. I have it on my PS2 already, would have liked it digital for Vita. Metal Slug XX and Metal Slug Anthology are the same price to purchase, so they could have bargained.
