Dyad Free for PS Plus Members Starting Tomorrow

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

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.

Another thing you should know –

The people who have called me a troll are also some of our most notorious crybabies here on the blog. Are you sure you really want to side with people like that? You’re clearly more intelligent than they are, so to align with such mediocrity would only serve to bring you down. And why you keep bringing up the fact that a few crybabies have called me a troll is quite perplexing to me. Are you assuming it will make me feel bad? Because if that’s your plan, you’re heading down a dead-end. Why would I take generic labels seriously… especially when their coming from people who clearly have trouble articulating themselves at higher than a third-grade level? My concern with this blog ends immediately every time I log off.

Do you want to continue arguing about crap like “trolls” just so you can escape having to post your imaginary resume? Are you still putting it together? Or are you a developer who has worked on some of the most disliked games in the history of the industry and you’re ashamed to reveal your connections to them, especially after consistently smearing other developers’ work? Hmm?

so looks like all that time i spent waiting for a limbo sale finally paid off….if i buy for vita will it be cross-buy with my ps3?

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 12:43 pm

By the way, I don’t run into jerks all day. So, I guess you’re way off base, yet again? Yep.

Anything else you’d like to let me know you’ve imagined about me? Whatever makes you feel better buddy. I’ll keep being honest, you keep pounding your chest and stroking that ego. OK?

CraddaPoosta said:

December 17th, 12:44 pm

I don’t need to prove anything to you, and your use of emotive language in trying to goad me into revealing my private identity is both transparent and patently obvious. Perhaps you’re used to dealing with a bunch of your intellectual peers. 15-year-olds without any social lives who compensate by “pwning” people online.

My name appears in the credits of more licensed, commercial games than yours does. I know it just has to eat you alive to be frustrated by me and for me not to reveal my identity to you, but at least that allows you to continue to triumphantly sit back there, point and scream, “HA! GOTCHA! UR SCARED!”.

Post your home address and your personal photo, and I will post my resume. Deal?

CraddaPoosta said:

December 17th, 12:48 pm

LOL. For someone who does not care, you seem to come back rather often. You seem to be enjoying this conversation. This is the most attention you’ve received from another human being this week, so I guess it stands to reason. Even negative attention is better than remaining forever alone, as you are.

I can almost see your blood pressure rising. You are SO MAD! I love it. You give me all the power to control you, you weak, emotional Drake-alike. I am going to start referring to you as Cool Whip.

Soft, sweet and all up on my nuts.

*inserts response about chest-pounding and demanding personal information to be posted for the world to see

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 12:53 pm

What?!? Dude, you’re not as slick as you think you are. I’m not asking for your address, or your phone and Social Security numbers. What, are you implying you’re afraid of identity theft? Quit playing dumb, it’s not going to work. Just a name… could even just be your first name and a last initial…. then give me the rundown on the games you’ve worked on. I can figure out the rest from there. As of now, it just looks like you’re making things up, which wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened around here. There have been other (dare I say it) “trolls” in the past who claimed to be developers, and it came out in the end that they weren’t.


If you’re proud of your work, you wouldn’t have a problem sharing the details with everybody. Like, “Hi, I’m Bill Jones and I’ve worked on x, y, z, etc…”

What’s the problem?


PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 12:55 pm

“You don’t know who I am”

“I don’t have to prove anything to you”

“I’ve done more than you ever could”


^^^ Classic trademarks of a posers, wanna-be tough guys, and internet thugs everywhere.

CraddaPoosta said:

December 17th, 12:56 pm

POST YOUR HOME ADDRESS and I will post my resume. What part of this was unclear? You want to know my professional credentials. I want to know where you sleep at night. We all have wants.

Tit for tat. At any rate, since we’re BFF’s now, I need to know where my mommy needs to drop me off this weekend for a sleepover. Don’t worry; I am almost past the night terrors, and I rarely wet the bed anymore. I am bringing my copy of Superfudge, so your dad can read us a nice bedtime story after we’re in our Spider-Man jammy-jams.

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 12:58 pm

You’re diggin’ a hole for yourself….

The very same people who you refer to as my “peers”, are the same few crybabies who called me a troll. The ones whose words you tried to use as leverage in your argument. Those 15-year olds with no social lives who live to “pwn” people online.

So… what now? They don’t matter anymore? In the beginning, they were so credible! When they called me a troll, they were spot on! Suddenly, they’re pathetic turds with no lives? How quickly you change your tune…

Now, where’s that resume?

CraddaPoosta said:

December 17th, 1:01 pm

Where is that home address?

Quid pro quo, Cool Whip. Quid pro quo.

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 1:03 pm

Dude, all that kiddy stuff isn’t even close to amusing. I know you think it makes you look smart, but I’m not so easy to impress. You’re talking like a fan more and more with every post, and not as a successful professional.

Would a developer even get on a gaming blog and bicker back and forth with another person like this? Me, I’m just here waiting for the Store Update post since I have a few days off from work, enjoying a short stay-cation…

Check this out… CraddaPoosta is a TROLL!

There. Now we’ve got you all set for a search engine match! I guess that means it’s all true! You really are a troll, ’cause some guy said so! Especially this guy… I’m never wrong.

CraddaPoosta said:

December 17th, 1:07 pm

I honestly could not possibly care less whether or not you believe me. You aren’t going to goad me into revealing any personally identifying information about myself on the internet. I know that just chaps your taint, but, deal with it. You suck at reverse psychology.

Well, you’re repeating yourself, now, so I have lost interest in this discussion.

You have my permission to take the last word. I know you need it. I won’t be responding to you any further on this post, but I am glad that you can’t delete your comments. Other people will see what a splendid fellow you are, and make their own determinations based on what you actually said. You can’t cover your tracks, this time.

See you on the next blog post that lights the fuse in your manpon, Cool Whip. In the meantime, you just keep right on running that pretty little mouth of yours, all by yourself.


PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 1:09 pm

I love how you’re ignoring all my points. You weren’t expecting to run into someone who was going to easily deflect all of your flimsy attacks, did ya?

Get a grip. Acting like I owe you a home address in exchange for your professional resume… yeah, that’s balanced, isn’t it? Your impotent tactics are beyond embarrassing.

Lesson for the day, son: From now on, don’t go pounding your chest and braggin’ about your accolades if you’re not going to back them up with proof. Nobody believes you. Not even your 15-year old associates who comprise your sharp-tounged army. Oh no! They called me a troll! What ever will I do…

I’ll keep being honest, you keep stroking that ego…

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 1:14 pm

I think you’re the one who wishes to delete his posts.

Now everyone can see that you don’t back up your claims with evidence… and NOBODY likes that.

I, on the other hand, have not said a single thing I’m ashamed of. Nor did I back myself into a corner like you did. Oops! Not too slick at all, not too slick…

See ya next time you come here to whine about the oppressive corporate world holding you down with their greed, conspiracy twit! :)

@Morgan: Thank you for the reply. Definitely unexpected, and yes, I understand that you read them. Comments are few and far between though (So now I feel special!).
As for the actual post, the previous sale you are referring to had the first two dlc packs on sale. Since then, four more have been released, disregarding the vault hunter packs/etc. also, there was not a discount on the season pass, which I think is what most people are frustrated about. That other console has had it on sale numerous times. Frustrating. Golden opportunity missed.

34 gb for a not so beloved God of War game is something i’m on the fence about…

What about far cry 3??!?

Baldani_L said:

December 17th, 4:01 pm

Does the God of War Ascension downloadable version comes with the online pass or it has to be purchase separately?

koggster said:

we need some ps4 game please!!!

AcidDrop420 said:

December 17th, 4:49 pm

Just so everyone asking about a sale on the Borderlands 2 dlc is actually on sale right now. Not sure why there’s no mention about it anywhere though.

The prices are listed as:

Mechromancer Pack – $7.49
Psycho Pack – $7.49
Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade – $3.74
Season Pass – $22.49

@ Baldani_L: See comment #121 in reply to my sarcastic comment #108 for your answer… this was already asked by someone else…

question…do games from previous weeks ever return for an “end of holiday” sale??

Moofboy said:

December 17th, 7:02 pm

@AcidDrop: Thank you. Must have been a bit last minute since there wasn’t mention of it on this post or in Morgan’s reply. Then again, not sure it is a PS+ discount. Seems to just be a sale… Which I am fine with. :)

Ikeep hearing that sonic racing for vita is coming but i cant find it anywhere as to when,please someone let me know.

iceblue604 said:

December 18th, 2:25 am

I’m gonna pick up Guacameelee! just cuz so many people here mentioned it.

Seriously, after getting PS Plus I’ve learned to save physical space for Japan import games that are not available on PSN. I’m glad I have held out for GoW Ascension until now!!

Combining with the frequent $10 promotions recently, it seems that Sony is on fire!

Why it seems like we never get any ps1 game for free now like it used to?

Can we please get it back???

I missed all of those ps one classic game for free…. :p

I’m new to the PSN. Does anyone know if Terraria for ps3 is likely to go back on sale in the future? The game looks pretty interesting…

You never know. Even if it goes back on sale the price might be different. Discounts can vary if there’s one.

Wow! Dyad is a great game. This is my biggest reason for having a PSPlus membership. Finding those hidden gems that I would have for sure otherwise overlooked. Thank you PSPlus!

Tharsuss said:

December 18th, 4:14 pm

Not a fan of Dyad.

Tempest meets Child of Eden without the fun of either.

I have nothing new to play right now, and I can’t bring myself to play another level.

My own opinion.

Hoping to get a Vita for christmas, so looking forward to that.

Are they ever going to release that PlayStation Plus exclusive Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag DLC for PS3. This is ridiculous! They release it in Europe, but they ignore everyone here in North America?! Come on, I have been waiting for it for months. Are they seriously just going to screw us over here in North America?! I bet they’ll eventually release it, but only for PlayStation 4, ripping off those of us who have the PlayStation 3 version. Thanks a lot, Sony!

Aikidou said:

December 22nd, 6:33 am

I didn’t get a discount for Terraria. Still had to pay the Full $14.99 for it. Even as a Plus member? what gives?
