What? Lol

Drawn to Death looks tonnes of fun! After Let It Die, I'm even more pumped fir some silly, frenetic fun for free!

OtterX175d ago

Hmmm, I wasn't that crazy about the Drawn to Death beta. Maybe some people will enjoy it, but I just couldn't get into it. The crazy designs are fun, but the black and white (and red) colors make it feel bland after a while. I understand the aesthetic choice, just doesn't work for me.

@PlayableGamez-
those are good titles for me, most of the PS plus titles they made free in the last 6 months were titles I already purchased in the past so....

I liked Drawn To Death when I tried the beta. I would love to get a split screen feature, since it feels like the kind of online game that I would play side by side with a friend. As for the other game, I see that it plays coop, so that's a big win for me!

I'm disappointed about the PS3/Vita games though. I wouldn't pay for PS Plus anymore if I only had a PS3 or Vita.

@OtterX

For some reasons, I love the art style, but I would've done a totally different genre of game with it.

That's the main downside of the game, it's another online multiplayer shooter at the core. It's not bad per say, but we got so many of them. I barely have time to spend on some of them, so it's unlikely that I'll play this title regularly. Rocket League as been taking most of my online time lately :D

UltraNova175d ago

I m kinda interested in Drawn to death...all in all its ameh ps plus month as far as I'm concerned.

Kornholic175d ago

I'm pretty sure this David Jaffe's N4G account.

_-EDMIX-_175d ago

I wanted to try Drawn To Death sure, but I'd rather still have something else.

Its to the point were we need dat PS3 to be the savor of PS Plus lol

I'm happy they are giving some indies some shine, more power to them and I found some GREAT titles that I otherwise really would have not bought, but .......I still want some main retail titles on Plus.

ie AC Unity, Watchdogs 1, Evolve, you know...titles I'm not going to buy or play unless given for free lol I mean even on PS3, that has a such a deep backlog that I feel they can do better. I remember looking at my PS3 games the other day when i got God Of War HD collection on sale (3 bucks folks, good deal) and I saw I had like 20 pretty good PS3 download games, all AAA retain games and I was like "bruh, what happened to PS Plus"?

I'll still pay each year as I always get my money's worth from some title or the other, but I think they can do better.

G20WLY175d ago (Edited 175d ago )

Lol at all the xbot dipshits calling me names for wanting to play a game! XD

Haven't played beta, so looking forward to giving it a try. If that offends the haters and the entitled millennials, I can live with that 😉

I played the beta last year for a while. It was OK, but not ground breaking. Looked great, but 2v2 was seriously underwhelming. Was hoping for at least 4v4 or even 3v3 for an arena shooter. As a PS+ game, it should do well as long as it isn't riddled with micro-transactions.

Lovers in dangerous spacetime is like one of the most awesome couch co op games ever made.

seanpitt23175d ago

Sony are not doing a great job persuading me to keep on my subscription, this is utter shite. I have only kept it on for bf1 multiplayer but that game is all style over substance so it looks like I won't be keeping psplus on after next week.

@Sean
Ok. I don't understand but ok.

tyasia0175d ago

At least they are giving away new games and not games from years ago.

What good is getting a bunch of games you already own?

AngelicIceDiamond175d ago

Would be nice if they gave away KZS, or Infamous imo or at least Knack considering there's a sequel in the making. I dunno whats wrong with the older titles they're cheap and there are many who haven't play them yet.

Liqu1d175d ago

@Angelic If they're cheap and you want them then buy them.

AngelicIceDiamond175d ago

Cheap is good but free is better.

tyasia0175d ago

@AngelicIceDiamond

"Would be nice if they gave away KZS, or Infamous imo or at least Knack considering there's a sequel in the making. I dunno whats wrong with the older titles they're cheap and there are many who haven't play them yet."

I already own all three of those games. I own none of these games because they are new. Getting games I already own has zero value.

XanderZane175d ago

@Liqu1d
The point of PSPlus and GWG is that you don't have to waste extra money and buy them. That's just a dumb comment. Would you say that if it was a game you wanted and had not played?

Another month and more dislikes. If it wasn't for MP for Fifa and CoD. I wouldnt even buy PSPlus.. If i wasn't a MP guy and paid for ps plus...you could assume i was a bonified nerd or a Pedo. PS plus games they give 95% of time are anti console games and not enjoyed by vast majority of console gamers which of whom mostly play AAA. #BanNonAAAIndiesOnConsoles

gangsta_red175d ago

Really?

Lovers is a great game and I wouldn't complain about a free arena shooter....even though it doesn't inspire confidence in the game that Jaffe created going for free. But I definitely won't complain.

S2Killinit175d ago

I wouldn't say that so lightly. Remember Rocket League was another game Sony gave away for free when it released.

gangsta_red175d ago

@S2Killinit

Rocket League had some good reviews and buzz even before it went to PS+ as a free game.

Kaneki-Ken175d ago

Complete garbage. This is coming from PlayStation fanboy. Both PS4/PSVITA are getting garbage games and there a lot of games that not new but are much better than complete Indie. March had a so what decent month but this month is just worse.

S2Killinit175d ago

how is it terrible? its a brand new game... I swear some people are just... nvm

CorndogBurglar175d ago

My wife calls me the 10 Second Ninja.

XanderZane175d ago

Not as good as GWG this month, that's for sure - https://news.xbox.com/2017/... . I do want to try Drawn To Death though. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime was on GWG like 2 months ago. Already have it. Here is the full list for people who don't want to click on the link.

Drawn To Death, PS4
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, PS4
Invizimals: the Lost Kingdom, PS3
Alien Rage – Extended Edition, PS3
10 Second Ninja, PS Vita (crossbuy with PS4)
Curses ‘n Chaos, PS Vita (crossbuy on PS4)

Looks like Sony is going Indie crazy with their PSPlus games. No more full retail games like Project Cars, The Crew, Darksiders, Assassin's Creed, Evolve, Star Wars: Force Awakening. etc.. Why isn't the PS3 getting anymore retail games for PSPlus. It had a ton of quality games. I'd take Puppeteer, Dragon's Crown, Valkyria Chronicles, GT6, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance 3, etc... Why all these Indies? For the PSVita, it's ok, but for PS4 & PS3 it's getting sad.

yeahright2175d ago

two things, first multiplayer. the amount of subs they lose from the quality of plus games is more than made up for by the amount they gain from new subs coming on just for multiplayer.
second, sales, xbox is lagging behind and they've shown they want to stay in the fight with things like BC and scorpio. so they push a little harder for their GWG titles. Not to mention from the publishers' perspective, putting your AAA game on PS4, that's 10's of millions of free copies, where as with xbox one owners who also have gold, that number is significantly less. There's more to that last bit obviously as we don't know how these guys get paid by MS and Sony.

XanderZane175d ago

@yeahright2
I was talking PS3 games which have already sold millions of copies. Even games like Knack and Killzone: SF have already sold their quota and aren't going to sell millions more. They could easily put those games on PSPlus with pretty much no repercussion. Thet aren't going to lose much. Even Bloodborne has been out over 2 years now. What's holding that game back?

yeahright2173d ago

Oh I'm with you there. not defending not putting old first and second party titles on there. I was more speaking to the lack of motivation to improve the situation. as much as we complain, subs keep increasing.

FITgamer175d ago

Agreed. DTD is fun for a short while then just like most F2P becomes stale.

thorstein175d ago

Only a turd could complain about a brand new IP for free.

Orionsangel175d ago

Having both a PS4 and an Xbox, I find that the options of games every month by Sony is laughable compared to what Microsoft have to offer.

Outsider-G175d ago (Edited 175d ago )

Drawn to Death is the only one I'm interested in and I might give Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime a shot as well.

peewee11016175d ago

Other then Drawn to death... Lackluster

Darkfist_Flames175d ago

Drawn to Death looks fun, kinda wish theres a story mode to go with it.

yeahokwhatever175d ago

theres a story hidden in the game itself. you sort of have to figure it out as you play. its not very in your face.

Vasto175d ago

Just when you thought it could not get any worse.

WeAreLegion175d ago

But...they started giving us AAA games. And you all complained. What do you want them to give you? Horizon?

Kaneki-Ken175d ago

I am not asking for recent AAA games but I would like Knack, Killzone Shadow fall, Infamous Second Son, Assassin Creed Black Flag which release on or around the PS4 launch so PlayStation have no excuse of not giving AAA games because they have plenty that won't affect big publisher sales

Segata175d ago

March was a good month as we got Disc Jam and Tearaway Unfolded.

nevarDcirE175d ago

I didn't see anyone complaining...

witwiki50175d ago

@kANEKI-ken . So basically you want what you say, and nothing more. If only the world worked like that right?

gamer7804174d ago

He's giving examples, basically they need to have more variety then just indies...
