Oh my god,I really want to play Transformer Devastation. And Resident Evil is free on PS+. YES !

SniperControl752d ago

I dont have either, so cool.

Sony have stepped it up in the last couple months with there PS+ offerings.

Kingthrash360752d ago

Ok....while I still dislike the price increase. ...if this keeps up I can see why they increased it. This is how it was back in the ps3 days where AAA games were the norm.

FITgamer752d ago

Nice month. Will definitely be playing both of these.

ifistbrowni752d ago

I bought RE at launch and still haven't played. *sad face*

could've saved $20. Oh well.

freshslicepizza751d ago

good selection but when are they going to drop vita and ps3 games?


Two great months in a row. I can't complain.

BigLurch751d ago

I suppose the only way is up for their free games.....but anyone thinking this is good obviously hasn't seen the competitors offerings lately.

UCForce751d ago

@Green-gangsta I report you for spamming.

bouzebbal751d ago

awesome.. they just stepped it up

Good-Smurf751d ago

Yeah,for Asian PS+ members got Gravity Rush Remastered for September didn't realized that until last week,like an early birthday present surprise for me!
And now this I think I'll try Transformers,as I already bought RE remaster.

Deadpooled751d ago (Edited 751d ago )


You and others should have reported that comment by greengangster as 'inappropriate', easy way for mods to comment ban him/her. (I think I might be on that list soon lol).

on topic - Resident Evil definitely one to look forward to in a few days time, Transformers looks alright as well.

Oooh wanted to try Transformers Devastation. Nice!!

yeahokwhatever752d ago

I hecka wanted to play it, but didn't want to try it THAT bad. I'm pretty excited to get to try it.

751d ago
xActionBasturdx751d ago

septic getting disagrees cause he's septic lol...but yea I wanted to try transformers as well and RE1 is a classic

Bahamut752d ago

That's cool about Resident Evil, shame I bought it immediately upon it's release like most Resident Evil fans. Still cool though.

bouzebbal751d ago

i bought it on Gamecube and played it a few years later on Dolphin emulator so didn't make sense to buy it once more. I'm very glad i will be able to experience it again thanks to PS+.

XanderZane752d ago (Edited 751d ago )

Yes, some decent PS4 games for a change. Been dying to play one of these Transformer games. I never did get Transformers: War for Cybertron & Fall of Cybertron on my XBox 360 when they were released. Guess I could get them off of EBay. This will hold me until then though. Plus a nice Remastered version of Resident Evil. Just in time for the final RE movie and RE VII. Good going this month Sony. I also wanted to try Mad Riders as well, but was too cheap to buy it. From Dust is a very old game though. Got that game like 5 years ago on my XBox 360. It's an ok game though.

Why all the disagrees? lol!! People don't like the truth I guess.

IamTylerDurden1752d ago

I guess you missed Journey and Lords of the Fallen this month...Badlands too.

yeahokwhatever752d ago

Lords of the Fallen is pretty sick.

XanderZane751d ago

I actually downloaded Journey already. I got Badlands many months ago on the PS4. I picked up Lord of the Fallen on my XB1 when it launched. Why are people so disappointed? This was actually a decent month for Sony. Microsoft went almost all Indie for October, even though Super Mega Baseball: E.I. & The Escapist aren't bad game. They still took a step back with these offerings.

Abracadabra752d ago

Not bad. Above average month for PS+.

BigLurch751d ago

I agree,just like steam coming of a fresh turd!

Kribwalker752d ago

Definitely a better month the games with gold, i don't have PS Plus yet, when you sign up so you get just the games that are on the month you sign up or do you get all the ones available in the instant game collection?

GrubsterBeater751d ago (Edited 751d ago )

Once you have the membership, go to the PS Plus section in the store and hit add to library. You will have those games forever, but can only play them while your membership is active. You also can not go back to previous months to download previous games. You can only download that months games during that month, and once the new month starts, you can't download the previous games anymore, so it is best to at least hit add to library once the new months games are offered (which is the first Tuesday of every month, by the way.)

Hope that helps.

Dark_Knightmare2751d ago

Lol dude has an x1 fan let me just say that gwg October offerings are flaming garbage

Kribwalker751d ago

That's what I said. Ps plus is definitely better this month. And thanks grubster, it works just like gwg for games you get, from when your sub starts your collection starts and not previous. That's what I was wondering

OB1Biker752d ago

Another awesome month on PS+ :)

Sony finally lost some of those Indie games. Hopefully they will keep this up.

cyber_daemonx752d ago

Some of those 'indies' are better than a lot of aaa's.

A good game is a good game regardless.

gigoran752d ago

Some of those 'indies' are much worse than a lot of aaa's. 

A terrible game is a terrible game regardless.

_-EDMIX-_751d ago

I know right, its better they don't give Witcher 3 for free, you know....with it being made by an indie team that owns the IP and all... /s

Skillz1215751d ago

and whats wrong with indie games?

UCForce751d ago

I'm sorry, but indie or AAA are still a game.

XanderZane751d ago (Edited 751d ago )

Many of them were not great however. Some of them weren't worth my disk space. Glad to see Sony is starting to step up their game again though. Fanboys can disagree all they want. Still won't change the facts. Sony had a few bad months with PS+.

Nothing is wrong with Indie games if they are good. Rocket League & Ori and the Blind Forest speak AAA Indie. Sony wasn't giving us that quality every month though.

Dark_Knightmare2751d ago

Dude most of those indies were better then the overhyped triple aaa garbage so no I hope they don't lose those indies

Very solid month.

I own Resident Evil already, but happy folks get to play it for free. Its a great remaster! Looks amazing.

751d ago
FullmetalRoyale752d ago (Edited 752d ago )

Resident Evil is a very appropriate choice. I already own *RE, but I am curious about Transformers, and genuinely interested in playing both Actual Sunlight, and that Code: Realize game.

Bahamut752d ago (Edited 751d ago )

Dislike this comment if you hate Playstation Plus.

Majin-vegeta752d ago

SMH people always want something.

cyber_daemonx752d ago

Its happened to me a few times. This month I have neither. Last month I had already played LoTF.

Its bound to happen occasionally but for the price of PS+ its no biggie.

yeahokwhatever752d ago

While I generally disagree, it would be somewhat nice to get sale prices on other options if you purchased a free game within the past 30 days.

Disccordia751d ago

It's already annoying reading people type "I've wanted this for forever". I mean, if you wanted it that bad, why not bloody buy it and support the developer in the first place. Now we get people moaning that they want free stuff on top of the free stuff. Sony (And MS) can't ever win. Some people are never happy.

Seriously, instead of moaning about it, do yourself (and all of us) a favour and stop being a PS+ member.

shadowknight203751d ago

Sure and after that people are going to complain that they already have the free game and already own the discounted games that they offer as a substitute..then people would complain just because they don't want the free game but want the sale price games at that price can never win with these kind of people

Agreed. I want Wasteland 2 for free!

751d ago
_-EDMIX-_751d ago

lol I just forgot October for Halloween thus Resident Evil

slappy508751d ago

Agreed I'm intrigued with that Code Realise game. And looking forward to giving transformers a try. Wasn't sure if I should buy it as I'm a fan of Platinum Games but I don't watch Transformers.

Dang, finally actual games I'm interested in.

P_Bomb752d ago

2 great games for PS+ I have to say. I bought TF Devastation earlier this year and am 1 trophy away from platinum. The REmake I haven't bought since GameCube but it's another nice title, coinciding with Halloween.

So, even though I've played them both already, I can't complain. It's a better effort than they're used to making. Hope it continues.

RpgSama752d ago

How hard is the Platinum in your opinion? I'm planning on getting the Platinum for it, but the SS rank in every level scares me. And is it too time consuming?

P_Bomb752d ago (Edited 752d ago )

Heh, that's the exact trophy I'm missing for platinum and I haven't even tried it yet. Not because of difficulty because I'm waaay overpowered for Commander mode. Cut through it like butter. But because SS ranks are temperamental and you have to SS every fight, every checkpoint except maybe one or two tops, but the issue is its based on grinding POINTS in a fight while simultaneously not getting hit or taking too long.

Beating a boss or wave in 30 seconds with one long combo won't get you SS. You have to put on a show. So for me I have to use low rank weapons like D or C and grind headshots while still not taking too long, not killing guys too fast, not getting hit and mix in some counters and things even if I don't want to.

Game doesn't tell you until after the fight if you have enough points so you're just guessing. If you screw up and only A rank, you should probably load an old save and try again. So yes, it's time consuming. I may try it again one day since it's all I need, but by this point Ive beaten the same levels so many times I'm just burnt out.

What else for platinum should you know, hmm. There's challenge rooms that are mandatory, some collectables, inventory micromanagement is huge as you're always buying selling fusing weapons and items RPG style. Gotta beat campaign 5 times minimum for trophies on escalating difficulties with at least one run of beating all the bosses on hard without getting hit. Sounds scary yes, but once you grind some S and SS weapons and get good at reading cues of when to dodge, it's easier.

You can level select and free roam levels with different characters after youve beaten them, which is fun. So nothing except the "SS everything" run is missable. Everything carries over. Even if you don't manage every boss on no damage, or beat all the challenge rooms, you can still finish around a nice 71% give or take. Good luck!

RpgSama752d ago (Edited 751d ago )


Thanks for such a well put together explanation on the mechanics to the SS rank and the platinum difficulty, really appreciate it.

Sometimes I wish for some games you could just turn off trophies and play it just for fun without worrying about these kind of things, the same happens to me with games that have multiplayer trophies, hate them.

P_Bomb752d ago

No prob' man! Nice talking about video games on here for a change instead of console wars, lol.

Agree with you about shutting them off every now and then, along with MP ones.

yeahokwhatever752d ago

I basically ignore trophies. The little popups sort of bother me, if not for some of them being funny.
