Dyad Free for PS Plus Members Starting Tomorrow

Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Dec 16, 2013 // Sr. Community Specialist

Last year, Dyad hit the gaming scene and stunned critics with its colorful visual palette and psychedelic soundtrack. Seemingly simple to start, Dyad builds on core mechanics gradually, allowing you just enough time to get the hang of things before teaching you something new to master. Lest you think that completing Dyad’s 27 levels marks the end of this entrancing journey, know that there are different modes to unlock as you get better at the game, including Trophy mode and Sandbox mode.

You can download Dyad and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/17.

PlayStation Plus - 12-17-2013

PlayStation Plus: Instant Game Collection

Dyad (PS3)

Free for PS Plus members

Dyad
Descend into Dyad to experience transcendental sensory overload in this abstract psychedelic racer. Blast through a reactive audio-visual tube to create a harmonious synthesis of color and sound as you hook, graze and lance enemies to master Dyad’s 27 unique levels. Embark on a mind-altering interactive journey through Dyad’s Game Mode to prepare yourself for Trophy Mode’s tactical freakout variations wherein a Platinum Trophy awaits only the most skillful. Or choose to sit back and chill with Dyad’s hallucinogenic Remix mode.

Awesome deal on God Of War A. I finally get to play it even though I already own the Collectors Edition (My copy of the game got stolen along with the steelbook, only got to play about 30min of it). Can’t wait.

I forgot we were getting Dyad this month. I forgot Dyad even existed actually.I remember trying the demo and not being too impressed by it. But I do like arcade style games so I’ll give it a toss some day.

And at those prices I’ll also be picking up Guacameelee and PixelJunk Shooter 2.

    I highly recommend it. it’s a bit out there, but once you get through the first few levels, it keeps layering on new gameplay hooks that keep the challenge fresh. the music is so weird too, but so good and fits the game really well at some of the higher levels. play it!


57

+ Viewtiful_Gene on December 16th, 2013 at 9:25 am said:

Awful month.
Dyad it’s boring as hell. There is no much in the game other than the same crap over and over again.

Buying Limbo for sure, though.

I was just thinking on pulling the trigger on Guacamelee! finally. And now, with the PS+ discount, I don’t even have to give it a second thought. I am stoked for finally be able to play this game, that every who has seems to rave about.

Just to know, Guacameelee! are not going to Plus Free in the next month?

For all music lovers, I recomend Beat Hazard Ultra, is not too famous, but is an amazing game, you put one song in your PS3 and the game generate one custom level.

Doubt about tecnical Support for Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3.

I bought the game, and the Ultimate Pack + Jill + Shuma-Gourat DLCs (full game).

I´m reading a lot of news about “CAPCOM IS GOING TO REMOVE THIS GAME FROM PSN AND LIVE…”

May I have FULL SUPPORT after Capcom take off this game from PSN library?

@Ryumoau You think it’s boring doesn’t mean we all think it is, but I’ll agree with you on the sales and Angry Birds though. No one in right mind would pay that much for an iPhone game. You are correct that Activision is greedy, cause they just are.

Not too many interesting sales for me, but thanks for offering more PS+ sales this time. It makes valuable customers like me happy. Already have God of War: Ascension on disc, but for those who haven’t got it yet, definitely buy it if you can afford the space.


64

+ Gamerzlimited on December 16th, 2013 at 9:38 am said:

Oh and I almost forgot. Does anyone know that the image shows Grid 2 as the new game coming on PS+ which was on the beginning of this month? Borderlands 2 and Dyad aren’t there, so it’s kind of misleading for those people who are looking forward to one of the games that already got removed and the other is going to get removed tomorrow. Just the heads up.

I wish I knew how to check how many days I have left on ps plus. I am certain I had overlapping ps plus subs but I am not sure at the present. Would have been cool if my second ps3 could have lasted 3 years but it broke. My 3rd ps3 froze the first day I bought it in the ps store. Definitely won’t buy a ps4 until games are 10 bucks and the system is 300 and comes with a couple of games. I have like 50+ ps3 games I still own but havn’t played and I just bought a gold 3ds. Definitely won’t buy a vita even though I could get a new one for 100 bucks right now because 4 outta 6 ps systems I bought have broke and the psp 2000 never holds a battery charge. Thanks for never giving me my 10 dollar credit for buying 50 a few months ago.

+ Billantwon on December 16th, 2013 at 9:46 am said:

Looks like I’ll be picking up GoW and maybe Hitman. Good discounts. Another great sale would be to see a sale on Singstar tracks every once in a while… that service has been around for over 5 years and can’t remember every seeing a discount on the content. Also, it would be great to have a decent Call of Duty sale on the DLC again. The last one back in September was horrid. Overall decent week for Plus members though.


67

+ Erlaxis on December 16th, 2013 at 9:48 am said:

Nice update. I bought Dyad when it released last lear and I enyojed getting all the trophies (it was hard). Nice game for masochists. The deal for Gow Ascension is awesome. I’ll get that game even though I got all the trophies when I borrowed the game from a friend. The singleplayer is amazing. The MP trial for Killzone Shadowfall is a great idea. I started playing the MP of the game after enjoying the SP quite a lot and it feels right, and apparently Guerrilla will be supporting the game for a while, so the experience will probably improve in the coming weeks.

And I know Runner 2 is coming to the Vita tomorroy, yay! So much awesomeness.

By the way, I don’t think you mentioned the PS+ discounts for Runner 2 and its DLC!

Was kinda hoping God of War would go on sale, kinda figured it would be for $20 and not $10.
Cant wait for The Walking Dead though, been replaying it on my Vita to get my self amped up (that and the three save slots on the console version are taken up)
Speaking of the Walking Dead, if anyone from Telltale happens to see this my uncle would be perfect as a physical model for Kenny, didnt realize it till last night but the two are splitting images, also hes from Florida too lol
Doubt this will be answered but will there be any PS4 games or DLC on sale around Christmas?

+ Criscross87v3 on December 16th, 2013 at 10:09 am said:

Nice week for sales. I sure do wish Limbo was still Cross Buy, but I’m thinking about just getting the Vita version to support the platform. Bought Beat Hazard Ultra on Android waiting for the PS version to get a discount, So I can’t wait to double dip on the PS version to play with surround sound. Quite curious about Atomic Ninjas but the pricing makes me think it’s not Cross Buy. I’ll try the demo first. Would love to get God of War, but the file size is way too huge.

Already bought Guacameelee! months ago, when it was half off, It was an awesome deal at even that price, so I recommend others enjoy the game at the even lower price point.

So there is sales & giveaways on Minis, but where is the love for PS1 and PSP games?

I know you guys almost never answer with exact dates, but it doesn´t hurt to ask. Is the Borderlands 2 DLC going to be on sale soon? I bought the game first week of release and finished it, but lately i´ve found myself getting hooked up on it all over again!
Also, i missed the diablo 3 flash sale, is there any chance on the game being on sale any time soon?
A sale on Tales of Graces and Xillia would be sweet too… :)

+ reynolds-wrap1 on December 16th, 2013 at 10:37 am said:

For the people who keep saying “what about this discount, what about these discounts” , it is obvious that there is not a discount if it is not listed. These people are running a business, you shouldn’t expect them to hand out discounts willy-nilly as the devs for the game decide the discounts.

It seems you people forget that people need to make money as often as they can. So be patient with these kind devs that bring you the games that you love so much. If you cant afford it then you need a better job (but times ar tough).

@38, yeah, I feel the same way. I thought that was a good deal for Black Friday, on the Playstation store, so I bought it. If I knew that in the same holiday season they were going to have an even better sale for half that price, I would have waited. At least a $10 credit would be nice. I know prices are always fluctuating, but you had to have known about this sale and that one. It doesn’t feel right if you ask me.

Any chance of credit for those that bought it for Black Friday, which should have the best deals of the year, for more than this weekend. I mean, I am a PLUS member literally since day 1 and still counting. It would be a nice gesture to have the price adjustment, like other retailers would sometimes do.
