December 4th PlayStation Plus Update

BioShock 2 (PS3)
Free for Plus members
Years after the events of the original BioShock, a monster has begun snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Players step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture (and recent star of PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale), the Big Daddy, as they travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers.
Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1 (PS3)
10% off for PlayStation Plus members (Regular price: $59.99, PS Plus Price: $53.99)
An amazing value, this collection features Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, L.A. Noire, and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition. Plus members can enjoy a 10% discount on this new release to PSN.

Puddle (PS3 and PS Vita Versions)
50% off for PlayStation Plus members (PS3 Plus Price: $3.50 $5.00; PS Vita Plus Price: $2.80 $4.00)
Experience a brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle/platform game where you must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world. It’s a unique twist on the puzzle genre and both PS3 and PS Vita versions are 50% off. Please note, this game is not cross-buy or cross-play enabled; so choose the best version for you, or if you’re a big fan, buy both!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s update. Tune in next week where we’ll have another fantastic title to keep you gaming with PlayStation Plus.

“Actually, you just don’t realize just how good I am….It’s not even that much of a challenge to destroy you people’s arguments.”

Then why aren’t you destroying any arguments? You don’t even try to discuss the topic at hand. All you do it thrash around throwing random insults, then delude yourself into thinking that you actually won the argument.

but, never mind. go ahead and continue to lie to yourself if it helps your pathetic self-image.

Stop trolling dude, and I’m assuming you’re a troll because you have been here arguing for 5 hours and you don’t even have PS+. So either your here because you are a really big fan boy, or you just like to argue for no reason. Why would you even spend 5 hours talking about something that doesn’t even affect you in anyway? That’s just sad.

@bamahollis88

I already explained how it “affects” me. You don’t get to tell me if it affects me or not.

And I haven’t been here for 5 hours. I logged off, took a dump, and played a game for a couple hours like I said I would. I came back out of curiousity/desire for more entertainment. Is that cool with you? Should I whine about Plus instead? Would you like me then? Probably. And THAT”S what’s really sad.

I just played the demo of the original BioShock a couple days ago and I really enjoyed it. The whole eerie atmosphere and story (as deep as the demo goes) of the game really caught my attention even though I’m not a huge fan of horror survival-type games. I’m glad I get to snag the 2nd one for free as I’ll probably buy the first one pretty soon.

Pretty good week for me. Thanks Morgan & Sony.

Yea, I didn’t read through all of your troll post so I don’t know what excuse you came up with that made it “affect” you but I’m sure it was just a bunch of BS anyway. The reason I don’t like you is because you’re a troll, the first post you made 5 hours ago started off with name calling and let’s face it that’s what trolls do, and you get entertainment out of arguing which is further evidence that you’re a troll. You’re not here to add any real thought or ideas to this blog, but instead your just trying and argue with people.

Shall I show you how you project yourself? Observe:

“All you do it thrash around throwing random insults”

That’s what you’ve done.

“then delude yourself into thinking that you actually won the argument”

That’s what you’ve done.

“go ahead and continue to lie to yourself if it helps your pathetic self-image”

That’s what you’ve done.

I should point out that the latter 2 are old, boring debate “tactics” that became stale the instant after someone tried them for the first time. Decades ago. There’s no point in saying either one of those things. They’re absolute dead-ends. Do you see it? Neither one of those statement provides a proof. Yet you still have your nose in the air… hmm. Yep. Projection.

I personally havent got a game that i would had bougth on PS plus IGC, nonetheless i consider i already gotten the money of the 1 year subscription i purchased in barely 2 months in. Certainly in comparation with EU we are getting less popular games, and the unequality in both regions service can give the feel that we, with the US service are getting the short end of the stick, but objectively we are getting more than our money worth, and that EU is getting more popular games dont really mean we are getting bad games, even if like people have said, bioshock 2 can be bought for 3 dollars, those are 3 dollars out of the maximum 6 you are paying a mont for plus.

if something i agree with the complaints,it’s with morgan telling people to be excited for next week, or saying next week is going to be good, specially when he repeatedly replies that preferences are subjective,knowing the long-argued issues of EU getting more widely acclaimed games, this just drive the blog in the direction it isnow.

in the end, to playstation; i can only say: thank you i enjoy the service and plan to keep doing so.

@neuropunk
The same can be said of RPGs. Aren’t they almost always turn based, about a group of people or a lone hero attempting to stop some evil force and going on long fetching missons?? I can’t stand RPGS. I tried to give FF7, FF8, Crisis Core, and some Tactics game and I just played each of them once and then deleted them. Taking turns in combat is not realistic at all! Who punches someone and then waits for the other guy to take his turn. My opinion is the supreme opinion and if you don’t like shooters you will get cancer! Thats what you sound like.

No seriously, I don’t like RPGs but I don’t go around saying they suck and they need to die because they are all the same. Stop hating on shooters. Yes COD is weak, but that doesn’t mean superior shooters don’t exist. And missing out on Bioshock is a great loss. Bioshock 1 is easily a top 10 game for me and is a game that I can replay over and over. It has a great atmosphere and villain.

The same can be said of RPGs. I mean aren’t they all the same with a group of people or some lone hero battling some ancient evil. Don’t they all have hours and hours of text and long, boring fetch quests? Seriously taking turns in combat? Who does that in real life?

Lol no seriously, I’ve tried quite a few RPGs just to see what the fuss is about and I just can’t play more than half an hour without getting bored and wondering where my life went wrong. But I don’t go around saying RPGs need to die and that anybody who plays them should catch a disease.

Stop hating on shooters, and especially Bioshock. That game is easily a top 10 game for me and it will be an all time classic. You are missing out on a great villains, characters, atmosphere and storyline.

There are no “free games.” You pay for the service, which has lost or decreased the frequency of their former offerings for “rented games.” I have no problem w/ a rented service but I do w/ the current Plus.

Just make two different Tier services for Plus. One IGC, one Classic Plus. I’d love to pay less for more discounts & avatars. Even if we no longer get Qore in either Tier it’d be better than the current state. Instead of getting forced into a program change I didn’t agree to. The IGC killed Plus for me, I already have the games I’m interested in playing from those offered. The majority were extremely disappointing however. I no longer see the point in buying games with them being given out for “rent” either. Specially when they aren’t even being announced the same day.

I’m no Fanboy or a Corporate Thrall, so Id criticise any company that dissatisfied me as the costumer. Honestly, the need to defend a business baffles me. I suppose thats a sign that the “corporations are people” agenda is really being driven into consumers. They dont care about you. They only care about your money.

Sevyne,

Not even close to being right. Regarding anything you’re talking about. Especially when it comes to me.

And now look what you did. You made the same mistake all the other fools did.

When you combine “miserable piece of trash” & “pathetic loser”, and follow it up with “nothing better to do than belittle people over the internet”, it’s like stepping right into a trap right after you’ve set it.

And this comes after you’ve done nothing but bicker with other users and persistently bash Sony, Plus, and the blog team FOR MONTHS. Other than Ryumoau, you’re probably the most critical. Just because you laid low for a while doesn’t mean I forgot, and neither has anyone at Sony who reads this blog. Stop trying to act like an angel so suddenly.

I hope you do pretend like I don’t exist anymore, because then there will be one less fool addressing me that I have to put back in his place. Good riddance.

You’re super ignorant and there are not enough words on here to explain how wrong you are. They don’t even make proper turn based games anymore since your shooter games mucked up the entire video game industry. I’m so sick to death of your casual bare bones gameplay and shallow games with nothing to them aside from aim some stupid cursor at some stupid enemy or explosion thing. It’s old and stale and needs to die. You Call of Duty games are among the worst games I have ever played. I also have tried Bioshock and that is just another generic trashy shooter. Sucks that shooters cannot be more like Metroid Prime and Half Life, no, they have to be watered down for dumb gamers like yourself.

And you expect for an RPG to pick up in the first 30 minutes? Holy crap, talk about unreasonable. You should go back to your ADD meds if you cannot handle a game not having explosions every freaking minute. You are everything that is wrong with the video game industry and your type makes me sick.

LOL @ you thinking they still make turn based JRPGs (my favorite type of game that I’m pissed off that Sony and other companies have abandoned). Makes me so mad that Sony mostly focuses on sucky shooties these days. I used to love the PlayStation, but now I’m starting to hate it.

“people disagree with each other all the time…there’s nothing wrong with that as long as they’re diplomatic and civil about it”

Ungrateful and selfish. Calling for Grace to be fired, for Morgan to step down, among other things… and for what? VIDEO GAMES?!?!

“attacking people for attacking a service seems kinda petty”

It’s not about them attacking the service, it’s the way they do it. As I just stated, it’s the disrespect. That’s the problem. They complain about not getting $100 worth of content every month for their $4.17 investment, I complain about their disrespect and their destruction of the good vibe around here.

When everything is a shooter, nothing sets them apart or makes anything special. Only shooter I play is Uncharted 3 online, but I am starting to hate it because of sniper and shotgun spam. Other than that, just Deus Ex HR, Fallout, and Skyrim is ok, but the combat sucks. Demon’s & Dark Souls are the very two best video games this generation though.

It is a passionate response since the NES was my first console and have been playing RPGs for over 15 years, and Mario RPG was my first and FF7 was my 2nd. PS1 had me hooked on RPGs, so did PS2, etc., and now it’s like Sony got us hooked and then just yanked them away. I have been waiting for great JRPGs on PS3 for over 6 years, and the Final Fantasy XIII series is absolute freaking trash. Tales of Graces F and Valk Chron are the best the system has to offer, but what else for JRPGs? And a few WRPGs are good, but they do not replace my love for JRPGs, and Sony as a Japanese company have taken away my Japanese RPGs and spat in my face, only to give me these crappy freaking shooter games that suck and have nothing to them. They are linear watered down and dumbed down, and don’t have puzzles, no quests, no good story, no towns, no exploration, etc. etc.

It’s not too bad and pretty original. And yes FFXIII is garbage, I agree….I do like the occasional action game though…I like variety…Far Cry 3 is pretty great so far if you want a shooter that’s a bit different than the norm.

What the hell do you expect from the king of JRPGs having tons of great RPGs on PS1 and PS2. JRPGs are my favorite types of games. I have been waiting PATIENTLY for JRPGs, but nope, they are not coming, just a butt load of crappy pewpewers. So many JRPGs this gen like the Atelier games have pedo crap in them. Pretty sure Chris Hansen shows up at their door if they play any of that over the top silly loli anime crap.

I have been waiting 6 years for good JRPGs on PS3. The best games are Dark & Demon’s Souls (I consider these WRPGs tho), Tales of Graces F, and Valkyria Chronicles. The best traditional JRPG this gen is Lost Odyssey. That is what I was expecting from the PS3. Not Fail Fantasy. Not this Hallway Fantasy, can’t control your characters, no world map, no airship, not turn based, no traditional FF elements. The Final Fantasy series used to be my favorite, but now the Final Fantasy sucks super bad, Final Fantasy as much as it pains me to say is beyond horrible. No words can describe how horrible they are or how angry I am at the video game industry for killing off my very favorite subgenre. The PlayStation brand is supposed to be filled with Japanese games but instead it’s filled with generic western crap.

Dragon’s Dogma is too bland and sorta unpolished, generic, and the combat is sorta clunky, sorta like third person Elder Scrolls type combat. I also don’t dig on the story.

Tales of Graces F is fantastic and the closest thing to a real JRPG on the PS3. Plus, IT ACTUALLY FEELS LIKE YOU’RE PLAYING A JRPG! (Unlike FFXIII which feels like playing a crummy action game)

I will download the Ninokuni demo tomorrow. I’m going to remain skeptical, because whenever a JRPG dev tries to “innovate” a new combat system into a JRPG, 9 times out of 10 it ends up sucking. I just want normal turn based ATB combat like FF7-10, Xenogears, etc. with a fully controllable, fully customizable party, with 3-4 characters, non linear, world map, vehicles, preferably mature characters, updated graphics but unlike those untalented hacks at Squeenix, not emphasis on graphics or cutscenes (substance before flash). Square (soft) used to make my favorite games, but I would not trust Squeenix to make me a sandwich.

Game designers (not indie) do not choose what games to make, the publishers do. But I do not want low budget 16 bit sprite game, I want an HD FF7-10, Xenogears (Xenosaga series sucked), Chrono Trigger, etc., quality JRPG with current gen graphics, much like Lost Odyssey, but the turn based was good, but really slow and tedious, the battles lasted a lot longer than classic FF games. Lost Odyssey is the best traditional JRPG this gen.

There’s still millions and millions of people around the globe who adore JRPGs, turn based ones, who want more, and these companies refuse to give us more, but shooter after shooter after shooter, and I can’t take it anymore. I bought a Wii U and 3DS (since N games are my favorite aside from JRPGs) and I’m done with Playstation next gen if they won’t give quality Japanese games anymore, like they used to. Final Fantasy 7 was the game that dragged me into the PlayStation in the first place.

Japanese companies stopped making JRPGs because they didn’t sell. Well, guess what?

RPGs DO NOT sell on the ShooterBox, unless they read something like: Elder Scrolls, Fable or Mass Effect.

At the start of the gen, Xbox had JRPG exclusives and it messed it up for RPG fans and I’m so angry. All I wanted this gen was a real Final Fantasy game and some good turn based JRPGs to go along with it.

Well, let’s see, Japanese games on an American console that the Japanese refused to buy, and I do not blame them for not buying a crappy Shooterbox 420. I especially do not blame them since M$ has no good exclusives aside from Lost Odyssey.

I have thought about importing, but I just do not think it is worth the hassle.

Well, let’s hope Ninokuni actually feels like playing a traditional JRPG, as opposed to most of the new crappy RPGs coming out these days. You asked about Resonance of Fate, I personally hate that game, it’s too weird. Cool if you like it but I think it’s really bad. I want a traditional JRPG experience, and so do millions and millions of people, so it does not make sense that all these companies are ignoring JRPG fans so much.

Well I understand that’s it’s weird, but that’s what I liked about it…it was pretty addictive once I got into it…but I definitely get why you wouldn’t like it (RoF)….anyway, the fact that I’m having trouble giving you any valid suggestions pretty much proves your point…there’s not a lot to choose from….that’s unfortunate, but I’m staying optimistic for NiNoKuni…the art style is awesome, and I hope the gameplay matches it….I guess Star Ocean is the only game I haven’t mentioned that was halfway decent and I have my problems with that game so there ya go. Oh well, here’s to hoping the industry goes back to making a larger variety of games, JRPGs included.

I don’t agree with weekly updates,
EU shows it right ahead and this update is simply frustrating, Bio2 really? Xmas is slow this year for PS+ US.

@484 BioShock 2 came out in 2010, Batman Arkham City came out the year after.

@497 There’s more planned for the future.
