So the rumor of VF5 for PS+ was true... NICE!!!!! I also like that Squadrons is there. I want to try out that VR mode.

Petebloodyonion733d ago

VR mode is a blast, it's probably the best Fighters' game in the series since Rogue Leader on GameCube.

I can’t believe they’re giving VF away for free. I was ready to shell out the cash!!

Abnor_Mal733d ago

Damn I bought Squadrons a few months ago while on sale, still haven't played it and now wishing I never bought it. But whats done is done, and I still have the other games on offer to play without any extra cost besides being a plus member.

darthv72733d ago

You should play it. It's fun.

Abnor_Mal733d ago

Oh I plan to, thats why I bought it. Im only saying instead of my compulsive buy i could have waited and gotten it at no extra charge outside of my plus sub.

The warmer it gets, the more gross it is to wear the headset for long duratuons of play with sweat soaking into the padding. Also im having to deal with that same padding crumbling from overuse putting it on and off along with the sweat likely adding to the crumbling.

"Oh I plan to, thats why I bought it."

HAHAHA...THAT'S what I said when I bought Gravity Rush 2 like 3 months after its release. it's still in its original wrap in the plastic bag it came with right now LOL! and my other unopened copies of SW Jedi FO, FFVIIR, Spyro etc...sigh...

let's just hope you have time to play yours! cheers

Abnor_Mal733d ago

@badz149 LOL damn you got me on Front Street now, so cards on the table, I do have that problem but its only with digital games. I play all my physical copies cause those are generally only the exclusives, everything else is usually heavily retail price reduced then bought on sale. Those are the games that I tend to forget about until I go looking through my library.

I havent gotten a PS5 as of yet, and don't really plan to get one till next year summer some time. I'm not searching but at the same time I'm not seeing, so in the mean time I will be going through my library of forgotten digital games and crossing some off. Some will forever be lost to time, a button press away but so distant in my want to play, same as many PS3 games yet not played.

I'm trying to do better.

BoneMagnus733d ago

I bought it on a May 4th sale for $20. Oh well. What are you gonna do?

Abnor_Mal733d ago

Yea I got it for like twenty three or twenty five dollars.

After playing Crisis VRgade2 for a while I went into Dragons Dogma. After I finish that then I will give Squadrons a go.

Ratchet75732d ago

If you have a VR headset, go and play it right now.
It's like being in the movie.

Knushwood Butt732d ago

I bought it new, day 1, and have played it once.

Consider yourself lucky!

Abnor_Mal732d ago (Edited 732d ago )

But you've at least played the game once, while I have yet to do so.

I like planes and jets and play games like Ace Combat, also playing games like Endspace in vr although its a bit disorienting not knowing which way is up. I'm just not a big Star Wars fan and that may be an underlying reason why I've been sitting on the game for so long. Now if it was a Star Trek game with the same combat, I likely would have played it a few times already.

I'll get to it though.

These services are starting to feel more like how long do I have to wait for the game I want to hit the other service vs one service having more then the other. Squadrons was a highlight for gamepass due to EA Pass a couple months ago and now free on Plus. Pretty sure it will hit PS Now in 2-3 more months at this rate which just makes me feel like I can relax on running to buy most of these games.

Vizigoth04733d ago

@ Lexreborn2
Absolutely. It’s possible to get caught up in all the games that you want to by but you miss out on the diamond in the rough or just simply never got around to a certain game and then all of a sudden it’s free or on an great deal or included with a subscription model. For example I’ve never play FF XV before and despite mixed emotions about it i thought why not give it a shot. Then I go look at the PS Store but ended up finding the Royal Edition Included Free on PS Plus. I’m like bonus! Download. Little perks these days.

Lexreborn2733d ago

yup, I swear I was sitting down yesterday looking through Gamepass and PSnow I was just like.... They certainly aren't making it necessary to day 1 games anymore.

darthv72733d ago

Squadrons from EA access is where i started playing it. I was told to get it for the PS4 if i have the PSVR and now... here it is.

Lexreborn2733d ago

It's like people on the internet are arguing over value and quality and in reality... We are all getting the same things just at different rates. It's an interesting Genjutsu we've been put in... Perhaps the infinite tsukuyomi did work..

Nice thing about PS+ (or Games with Gold if the games weren’t all turds) is that you get to play the game so long as you are subscribing to PS+. I can download Lego Marvel Superheroes that I got from PS+ in 2014 and still play it.

Profchaos733d ago (Edited 733d ago )

It does but then you end up waiting for a game to reach a service and it never does. I'm still waiting for far cry primal to hit either PS plus or gamepass even gamepass PC for example. It's a game I'm intrigued by but don't think I would want to spend the money to buy it

Been waiting for years as FC primal always looked and felt like DLC to 4 from everything I saw and read almost a garuntee for a service like plus or gold but nope.

Wow!! Thats effing nice, will see if I still remember to combo in VF5 :D, I really didnt expect VF5 to release so soon and even free, well kinda PS plus members ;)

JEECE733d ago

Yeah, I'm wondering if the shoulder buttons are going to be changed. The tendency on PS4/PS5 has been to treat R2/L2 the way R1/L1 used to be treated on PS3 and earlier, so I'm wondering if they'll make that switch for VF5 or keep it the same. It's a weird thing, because in most cases the newer shoulder buttons are much better, but for VF5 specifically I may miss the PS3 controller.

LucasRuinedChildhood733d ago

I suppose the Dualsense is a different shape than the DS3 and pressing L1/R1 might not be as comfortable, but if that's not an issue, you can just go into your PS5 settings and use the custom button assignments.

hot4play733d ago

I thought I was the only one who felt this. Yeah I kinda miss the natural way my index fingers rested on L1 & R1 and middle fingers on L2/R2 up to the DualShock 3. The PS5’s DualSense is an improvement over the DualShock 4 in this regard as its more comfortable to rest your index fingers again on L1/R1 or L2/R2.

LucasRuinedChildhood733d ago (Edited 733d ago )

VF5: Ultimate Showdown and Star Wars: Squadrons are solid picks.

Not sure about Operation: Tango since there are no reviews for it yet. I've looked at some preview videos and it could be good though. It's cool that 2 games are launching day-and-date on the service.
