RM_PS3_FOBRemember Me

Neo-Paris, 2084: Personal memories can now be digitized, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.

A visionary 3rd person action adventure, Remember Me puts players into the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.

Wow a spoiler alert for the Breaking Bad blu ray would have been nice. Not everyone is up to speed with what is going on with the show. And as far as the games that are dropping this week I guess we are going to be seeing yet another Vita game for plus people. I dont get how Vita people are always complaining there is never anything for them when most games are cross platform and are on the PS3 and the Vita and then there are the games that are just for the Vita. It would be nice to have a whole month of decent stuff for plus people instead of maybe, if we’re lucky, one good game and then the rest of the month we get games that are in the bargain bin and nobody wants. Im always seeing people commenting on how Europe and Japan are always getting good stuff and we arent. I dont get why we cant get good stuff just as well.

I love all the people that ask “Can I still play the free games if I’m not a PS+ member?”. So let me get this straight…you’re asking “Can I pay $20 (3 month membership) and get over $200 of games? Really? Really? I can only say NO, they’re for MEMBERS.

Kinda like quitting your job and asking “Can I still get my paycheck every week?” What clowns.

@Harerazer

I totally agree with you. I saw where someone said that unless they got to keep the games after their subscription ran out that it wouldn’t be worth it….it totally amazes me the entitlement that some people believes is owed to them.

The only time being “first”is significant is if, you are the “first” person to make a product, or market a product. The importance of being the first in these two or several areas,is that you have the advantage of selling,or making a profit from being “first” to bring it the market. I really don’t know the advantage of being “first” to post on a blog or page?

Class of Heroes 2 should be on Vita. Why is Sony not forcing developers to support their current gen hardware? Vita will continue not to sell if you dont make games come out on it!

@102 That would be considered fraud.

@107 They usually don’t until the store updates on Tuesday.

Not a whole lot going this time. This close to E3, you’d think there’d be a lot to talk about, even if E3 will be mostly about new consoles.

@ 83 The_Dukenator – Batman games not worth continuing to play?….you must be one of those bastards who buy games only for online or if the game in question has online……Batman is one of the best multiplat. games and is beyond worth continuing to play and do 100% on both games which is very rewarding.

This is my first post here. Thumbs up, Sony! Loving my PS3 so far.

If possible, please enable alphabetical sorting of PS Store games saved on the PS3 system. I’d love to be able to group all of these games I’ve downloaded in a more intuitive manner. Thanks!!!

All I stated was a remark that week after week, regardless the user, there’s always somebody somewhere that says that this week sucks.

If you check all past post, you’ll see, there’s at least 1.

All I’m saying, sure, there might not have something for you this week, there might be some other week.
But do we really want to know there’s nothing for you? In that case, what would you like to see then, that could help sony better serve you.

In any case, there are some good games in there that, unfortunatly, nodoby is aware of them because of lack of information on them. I’m thinking Remember Me, Earth Defence Force and Class of Heroes 2 got my attention.
Haven’t tried them out yet, but I’ve seen some information on them, even if there aren’t a lot of coverage.
