Review: PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD - 2 Years of Frustration Are Finally Over

Chris of The Games Cabin: I’m free. It’s over. That’s what I said when I put down my PS Vita after finishing the last challenge on PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD. For the past two years (maybe a few months longer) I’ve been dipping in and out of the game. I’ve deleted it out of frustration, only to then find myself downloading it again a week later because I need to finish it. That time has come, finally.

Isn't it almost time for the August lineup for PS+? Why are we getting news about July?

Sharius3508d ago

they usually out at the begin of the forth week of month, so next week

SaiyanFury3508d ago

Can we load up on Japanese developed games here in the west?

Fullmetalevolust3508d ago

We should treated to more Japanese games here in the West. I wouldn't mind a few free recent RPGs on my vita :)
I support what the poster above me said haha.

LetoAtreides823603d ago

Surprised the Xbone isn't on the gold program yet. PS4 had PS Plus support since day 1.

DigitalRaptor3603d ago

You'd think that they could at least have already gone with something like LocoCycle, Crimson Dragon or Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. Those would've been a good option for launch, even.

"It’s not fair to count the PlayStation Vita games against Microsoft because Microsoft doesn’t have a handheld system, but the Xbox One is still not part of the Games with Gold program five months after the console’s release."

So Sony is able to offer a better lineup for 3 platforms than Microsoft is for one, and somehow this is "not fair" on MS?

"So Sony is able to offer a better lineup for 3 platforms than Microsoft is for one, and somehow this is "not fair" on MS?"

So which imaginary Microsoft handheld should the VITA titles be compared against?

Kryptix3603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

@Septic

You missed his point.

Even without counting Vita's PS Plus games, It still gives more value than Games with Gold.

Think about it for a second. If Microsoft has no handheld system to give a game to & they haven't applied GwG to Xbox One yet, why is it still not doing better against the PS3 with the 360?

For owners of all 3 PS systems, PS Plus is an amazing value. I decided to buy a Vita soon due to PS Plus's offerings. Have a very long list of Vita games waiting to be played.

Gazondaily3603d ago

You're reading way too much into it. The article is basically saying, well let's not bother comparing VITA titles to the X box because there's nothing to compare it to that's all.

Giul_Xainx3603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

Taking the comments left by fanboys against the PS Vita such as "the vita is dead." Or "the vita has no games."

I don't see how you should have a problem with ps vita games being included.

All I see in a comment trying to cut out the ps vita is nothing more than pure weakness. A platform that fanboys constantly put down gets free games with ps+. Because of this it somehow becomes a double negative towards another brand.

I guess it wasn't just the drm policy that burned down the xbox brand. Looks like Microsoft has finally lost it all.

(And it was so obvious. I guess the adjusters still haven't learned a single thing. SPIN SPIN SUGAR!)

I guess you can say Plus is better.

Gazondaily3603d ago

That's not even an opinion. It's a fact.

Thunderhawkxbox3603d ago

How is it better I know you get better game on ps plus but on Xbox live u do own the game forever ps plus it's like renting a game if u cancel it u don't own the games anymore but Xbox live you do even if u do go to silver

Sam Fisher3603d ago

It is like renting, you are right. But if you have to buy year subs for you to play consoles that are now mainly made for online you might as well say its keep since youll most likely have a yearly sub every year

Oschino19073603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

@Thunderhawkxbox, what game rental service allows you instant access to hundreds of games (assuming you have been a member for some time).

I have only been a member for a year and 5 months almost and have around 100 games from plus not counting all the discounts and other bonuses I have taken advantage of.

As you said it's generally agreed upon that PS+ gets better games but let's also not forget the rest.
More games
Newer games
Better and more frequent sales/discounts
Cheaper MSRP
Doesn't lock up other free and paid services

By your logic you are "renting" the ability to play Free 2 Play games and use otherwise free apps or already paid for subscription services.

reaperofsouls3602d ago

@Thunderhawkxbox
" how it better"

well PS+ is better than games with OLD because:
1 you get game across 3 platforms

2 you get much more recent games eg FARCRY 3 , BIOSHOCK INFINATE etc which were 1 years old at release vs HALO 3 RAINBOWSIX LOSVEGAS which were 7 years old at release

3 You get more games 6 per month every month

4 You get discounts on game from store

Hope this clears it up for you.

hotbeatz853602d ago

When you can play them offline then I would agree but until then you can shove PS+ where the sun don't shine

assdan3603d ago (Edited 3603d ago )

Microsoft is willing to do that though, at least not right now. Games with Gold only throws you the scraps that don't really matter anymore. Games that you could find pretty easily for less than $5 most of the time on Amazon. PS+ actually offers new content all the time, and that's a big deal even if the games aren't AAA. But on top of that, they give us AAA games less than a year after their release, often times. Both are great ways to play big games that you may missed out on, but playstation plus is clearly far more valuable. Especially if you own every platform that it's on.
And that's just right now. MS easily could, and probably will, at some point, make games with gold a service that's more than just an attempt to combat a Sony service. Which let's be honest, that's all it the for. So they can say "Well look! we have this too!"

hotbeatz853602d ago

Surprised PS+ does not let you keep them at all so enjoy it till they stop supporting ps3
