PlayStation Plus Update: Puppeteer, Surge Deluxe Free for Members

Kristine Steimer on May 19, 2014 // Sr. Community Specialist

Puppeteer is a stunning adventure starring a boy named Kutaro, who unfortunately gets turned into a puppet and then has his head removed. Tough break. As you make your way home, you’ll collect heads from other sources (not sure why there are a bunch of heads lying around, but y’know), which serve as collectibles and your health bar. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Puppeteer, Surge Deluxe)

It was an incredible game.

The Narration is a bit annoying at times especially with Picarina. But its meant for kids so you have to factor that in.

The music was incredible, especially in the wild west stages.

So many games so little time and limited memory. Going to have to delete some stuff that I don't use anymore. Glad I waited though. I've always been wanting to try puppeteer.

It's only a problem if you don't have ps+. Or a playstation console.

Only a true Rabble-rouser would call free games a problem.

Actually ps plus is an illusion of free games. You dont own the game, you have access to it if you pay sub. No sub no games. No net no games. Still some good deals and games. But it definitely isnt free games. When someone gives you something its yours. Sony says as long as you pay me you can play me.

Millions have no problem with not owning every movie on Netflix, every song on Pandora/Spotify, so why would anyone have a problem with PS+?

Ten to twenty years ago, media was limited and you had to purchase everything to use it. Nowadays, since we are overwhelmed with choices in every form of media entertainment, subscription models are beginning to work. Companies are vying for our time and interest. Using the sub model makes certain entertainment available to you that you may or may not have played/listened/watched if you had to pay full price.

How many movies get watched just because "Hey its on Netflix, might as well"? I won't pay 25$ for a movie, but since I'm willing to pay 8$ a month to be able to watch a wide variety of movies/shows. PS+ is the same, especially as they expand the library of free games for plus users.

Anyone disappointed in the recent "re-downsizing" for the Vita PS+ games? It used to be PSP/horrible indie games (Not even the good indie games were on Plus for Vita), then for like two weeks we got like, Sonic All-Stars and Soul Sacrifice, now we're back to arcade-y shoot-y games for the Vita's Plus selection. As someone who doesn't own a PS3, I'm quite unhappy with how far this Plus membership had gotten me so far...

Received a notice that I had only 1 week left of + so I renewed. The puppeteer looks like a fun game for me to start my renewal off with.

Can you add "EU" or "NA" in the title when you submit PS+ stories please. It will only add 3 characters to your title.
jimmywolf  +   316d ago
while i agree 100% under Read full story it say

buffalo1066  +   316d ago
yea but its annoying that i click the link only to find its not relevant news to me when the guy who posted this could have just said it in the title

Puppeteer is an excellent game, well worth playing. One of the most original games I've played in quite a while, in terms of presentation and style at least.

The only complaint I would have is that the different heads you collect are largely just for accessing certain bonus areas, aside from that they are mostly cosmetic and are redundant in a gameplay sense.

Apart from that it's a fantastic game.

EDIT:Just thought, the heads also act as your lifebar as well, so I suppose they do add to the gameplay in another way.

Guess I'll have to add these to the backlog. So many games to play and little time to play them.

ps+ has the worst games for 'free'...
Vystrel  +   310d ago
The PS4 PS Plus lineup could use improvement. Good games have been free but still no triple AAA games. The xbone is getting Ryse and Forza 5 :(
