Wow Puppeteer already on PS Plus.

PeaSFor828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

still shaking my head over PES, a soccer game... really?

im canadian and i eat and breathe hockey, im not into dramaqueen sissy sport like soccer.....but free is free i guess....like a free hemoroid.

anyway, i will at least enjoy Stick it to the Man on ps4.

nope111828d ago

I agree. Sports games shouldn't even be part of PS+.
Other than that it's a good month for me, i was planning on buying Skullgirls when all the DLC came out.

I'm Canadian, too, but let's not get caught up in personal experience and preference.

Football video games have been better than hockey video games almost every year since they transitioned to 3D.

armor or not, your soccer player would simply die on the ice

this isnt theatre, son.

Myst-Vearn828d ago

so what? you don't like FOOTBALL which is fine but it's still the most popular sport on the planet and a lot of people will be happy they added a football game.

PeaSFor828d ago

Myst-Vearn soccer is indeed the most popular sport, because you pretty much need nothing else than a ball and peoples walking fast around it.

go wonder why its popular.

ShinMaster828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

I thought Canadians weren't supposed to be a-holes. And I'm saying that as someone who's not even a Football -sorry- "Soccer" fan.

Back-to-Back828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

Leave the soccer shit in EU. Us Americans like real man sports like football and basketball.

@ShinMaster

Trust me there are plenty of asshole Canadians, I live in Quebec and I'll be the first to say two thing, one is Quebec is home to some of the biggest asshole people and politicians I know (and I travel alot) and two is.. I hate hockey -_-

lodossrage828d ago

Too much bigotry in this comment section.

If you don't like a sport, fine, that's your business. But don't go mocking the sport just because YOU dislike it. I'm pretty sure a ton of people can just as easily rag on the sport YOU like.

And as for the person that commented about sports shouldn't be a part of plus, WRONG. People need to understand Plus is meant to accommodate ALL the customers, which by the way includes sports game players.

Some people here need to stop acting like the world revolves around their likes/dislikes alone.

Heck, I don't play/like sports games either. But I'm not going to sit here and say it doesn't belong on the service or rag on the sport in general because of it.

Delsin_Rowe828d ago

Remember even if you Canadian that doesn't mean people have the same taste as you, there many Canadian could a different taste of sports, PLUS+ are offer game for every type of gamers.:)

T2828d ago

Soccer games are fun as hell with friends.. Also I grew up on west coast, cant play hockey unless in a rink.. Played way more soccer growing up who had time to put gear on during recess when you are a kid?
Plus we had no ice

_FantasmA_828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

If you don't football then don't play it. Seriously why even bother stating your opinion like that. You could just have said you like hockey, but to come in here and criticize another sport when no one asked you is just childish. I don't watch football either unless its the World Cup, and I never ever watch hockey, so why would waste my time talking bad about something I don't even care about?

ShinMaster828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

@ Back-to-Back

Speaking of EU. You wanna talk about a "real man" sport that doesn't rely on armor and tights? Rugby > American Football.

Septic827d ago (Edited 827d ago )

"im canadian and i eat and breathe hockey, im not into dramaqueen sissy sport like soccer...."

Err...yeah okay...good for you.

Gotta remember, they have to make games for a diverse group of gamers.

Puppeteer + SkullGirls? Yes. Very nice.

Good selection of games, IMHO. And I don't even like sports games.

MEGANE828d ago

Man! Was wrong with plus lately... Soccer game for U.S. ...really... And Europe gets muramasaand we get a puzzle game... GTFO.

admiralvic828d ago

"Gotta remember, they have to make games for a diverse group of gamers. "

True, though I would argue they're doing a poor job even by that logic.

Take Skullgirls Encore, which is yet another fighting game. Now, for whatever reason, NA seems hellbent on giving us every fighting game out there. No joke, if you actually examine the number of fighting games out there by how many we got with Plus, you would see that it's probably the most represented genre in NA and why we see so many people complain about them.

PES is another great example, since sport games are probably the least common Plus genre (probably given the low demographic of sports fans with Plus). Now, the problem with NA vs EU is that NA is very conflicted in regards to top sport, where as I think most people in Europe would agree it's soccer or as they put it, football. For NA, America likes Football, Canada likes Hockey, so that would make this mostly for Latin America, which matters, though we probably shouldn't get a game that only appeals to 1/3 of the region (generally speaking), especially in something thats very narrow to begin with (sports games).

Anyway, the best example of this is Limbo and Stick it to the Man!, since we've also gotten a lot of quirky / weird high concept games* in the past. These join Thomas was Alone, Dyad, Ibb & Obb, Runner 2, Ico, Dokuro (great game though), Kyntt Underground, The Cave, Closure and probably more.

I mean, it's good to make games for a diverse group, but some groups are certainly better represented than others. For instance, the last turn based JRPG I saw offered with Plus was Disgaea 3 in March of last year and in that same span of time we've gotten 6 fighting games...

* I generally listed games that were either weird in concept, art style or something that falls into a category that is really atypical.

Jaqen_Hghar828d ago

Second best platformer of the 7th gen in a man's opinion (Ratchet and Clank ACiT being the first). Really a shame it was so low selling but hopefully more people see the most charming game of the 7th gen this way and the ratings and feedback help Sony fund a sequel or spiritual successor (seriously guys it has brilliance bleeding out of every corner!)

Guwapo77828d ago

You guys are worried about a damn football game... What happened to the Action RPG Muramasa Rebirth for the Vita. Oh how I wanted it. /sigh

Neonridr828d ago

At least I get Limbo for my Vita, that was one game I tried the demo for but never bought back on the 360. Happy I will be able to try that game out.

Not super psyched for the PS4 or other Vita offerings, but I will give Stick it to the Man a go anyways.

Eonjay828d ago

It seems funny. I could use something lighthearted myself.

Neonridr828d ago

who knows, maybe I will love it to death..

AceBlazer13828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

Kinda pissed i chose puppeteer over Xillia in that 13 for 13 sale.

Anyhow it was a fun game and Excalibrus has to be the coolest pair of scissors ever.

nope111828d ago

Xillia was mediocre imo.

Umbasa828d ago

Yup, same here, wishing i got Xilla instead. I hope Skull and Stick it are fun and if not back to more Warframe.

tmacdonald828d ago

I am excited to try Stick it to the Man! What day do these offerings start?

Ilovetheps4828d ago (Edited 828d ago )

It'll probably start on May 6th.
