    Axiom Verge for those who like Metroidvania games. 84 Metacritic
    Battlezone a game I think can now be played without VR since a recent patch albeit full price is too much lead to mixed reviews.
    Darkest Dungeon had the blogcast and especially Sid addicted for weeks, I got addicted as well. 84%
    Firewatch a narrative based experience 81%
    Flower a palette cleanser experience 91%
    Hohokum a game/experience that holds an odd niche. 75%
    Journey a game that put President Shuhei Yoshida in tears 92%
    N++ A game with thousands of levels/challenges 82%
    Ratchet and Clank needs no introduction. 85%
    Risk of Rain the more you play the harder and crazier it gets, tons of crazy. 81%
    Rogue Legacy a challenging time and time again until you get the hang of risk/reward/mastery 85%
    Soma. SOOOOMAAAA Sci-fi horror game and favorite syllables for the Podcast. 84%
    Last of Us from the genius of Naughty Dog. 95%
    Unfinished Swan an interesting emotional story/puzzle experience about loss and grief. 83%
    Transistor another genius games from the people who made Bastion, Pyre, and well the middle child Transistor. 83%

    None of these games are bad. Some more niche’ than others. Maybe grab something new. I have all but 2.

    @MakaiOokami

    I don’t think that’s correct. I’m pretty sure Battlezone VR still requires VR for the entire game. There is no NON-VR mode.

    MakaiOokami said:

    August 23rd, 11:29 am

    I guess you’re right drd7of14.

    I guess it was Eve Valkyrie Warzone that’s getting patched to no longer require VR. You can see how the mistake was made. Warzone Battlezone. I’ve got VR so it wasn’t something I was really paying attention to. Thanks for the correction. I thought a non VR patch was why someone decided to make it their pick for the discount.

Can I get a bonus game? I might have all 15 of these already.

And yes, I am not kidding, I have every single one.

    I’d definitely recommend all of these those. Great farmfresh picks!

    MakaiOokami said:

    August 23rd, 11:40 am

    I don’t have firewatch and i don’t have Axiom Verge. Wasn’t in the mood for Metroidvania, and waiting on Firewatch till I get through my tale tale backlog.

    So yeah…I’m almost in the same boat. lol

Wow, yet more evidence of how horrible the blog staff are, just look at their taste in games.

    Good luck with that whole being a big jerk thing you’re doing here.

    MakaiOokami said:

    August 23rd, 12:47 pm

    You’ve got Journey, Rogue Legacy, Ratchet and Clank, the Last of Us, and Transistor.

    You’ve got 1/3 of the games up there…

    Gotta ask why Darkest Dungeon and Risk of Rain aren’t on your collection. If you liked Tharsis you’ll probably like Darkest Dungeon IMO.

Hovahtsug said:

August 22nd, 2:36 pm

6 games are PS Plus Free games, and just 33% off on old games.
But anyway, congrats for these 10 years.

    Pretty sure you are just admitting to having terrible opinions and being a jerk towards others. Most of these games are incredible.

    If you dislike the blog so much, why even comment?

Axiom Verge – Own it, very good metroidvania heavily inspired by metro game. It’s getting a limited physical release. Recommend it!
Darkest Dungeon – Currently one of my favorite indie games atm. This game is a fun dungeon-esque crawler with heavy emphasis on sanity. It’s new DLC Crimson Court just released today too so worth the pick up.
Firewatch – Audio in this game is amazing, relaxing sounds of the forests draw you in. The communication between the two main characters is astounding.
Flower – Everyone knows what this one is, just a simple game for relaxation and calming.
Hohokum – Weird game, played it a few times and never went back.
Journey – Well known, no need to say anything about it.
Ratchet & Clank – Awesome remake
The Last Of Us Remastered – Need I say anything about this masterpiece
Transistor – GET THIS TITLE NOW!

    Good rundowns of each game! I loved Hohokum, if you’re into super-chill experiences you should give it another shot. :)

Prices of these games still seem high to me. 67 percent off or more would of did the trick for me to pick some of these up. Been wanting soma and firewatch for some time now.

gohan16ken said:

August 22nd, 3:10 pm

No, thanks but congrats!

P.s. will there be a flash sale this weekend?

killaruna said:

August 22nd, 3:40 pm

Pretty terrible sale considering its only 33% on only 15 games. Some good games here dont get me wrong but they have been at better prices before or free on PS+. Suspect decision making whoever decided to ok this.

    steeler192 said:

    August 23rd, 8:41 am

    I agree that it’s pretty terrible. Why make a discount code that’s only good for 15 games? Why did they not publish the games WITH THE 33% DISCOUNT ALREADY ON? I mean, buyers could have very well purchased the games already and not get a discount if they’re not aware of the code…

axemtitanium said:

August 22nd, 3:53 pm

It seems I already have most of these. I’ll take that to mean I have good taste?

ScarGardens said:

August 22nd, 4:45 pm

Congrats on 10 years and a thank you to the entire blog team for always keeping me and others on here updated. Few great games in there, though I have the ones I would want already. Still a extra sale is great for everyone on the blog though some don’t deserve it.

mschulze00 said:

August 22nd, 4:58 pm

what happens when you input the code and have a title that’s not in that list in your cart?

Thrasher20 said:

JinZer069 said:

Can anyone confirm if the code works for DD: Crimson Edition? I might jump on that to finally play it on my PS Vita.

Would be nice if PSN was actually working (at least in Chrome, it’s completely broken at the time of this post, with lots of “unable to find this page” from links found within PSN)

Pack3rs0wn3rCB said:

August 22nd, 10:08 pm

Maybe firewatch… but the rest of this is bad. I have Ratchet(fun!). I wish I didn’t have journey. Blah. But anyways between everybody’s golf(cannot wait for it!) D2 and Madden I have no time for indie shovelware atm

ULTMT_WRATH said:

August 22nd, 11:07 pm

Happy 10 guys, hope to keep hearing from you . Picked up Risk of Rain so I could play with my Bud on Vita. hoping for more good stuff

R2tito11 said:

August 22nd, 11:59 pm

is this a “sale”? what a joke…

Tatanka2007 said:

August 23rd, 1:51 am

Definitely rather weak since many titles have either been free with Plus or have had far better discounts. I suspect that they will have better discounts again in the future too.

Still I gotta admit that Rachet and Clank is so much fun and looks even better on PS4 Pro. I think regular digital is only $20, so get it!

Delly-dally said:

August 23rd, 3:40 am

People are being such babies about the choice of games on sale.
Utterly missing the point.

Congrats on 10 years guys!

This “sale” is a bigger fail than Obama’s presidency.

    MakaiOokami said:

    August 23rd, 3:28 pm

    Better than the current presidency. I’ll be just happy if the current president doesn’t cause Japan or Korea to get nuked off the face of the Earth…

    Now THOSE are low expectations. Let’s not get all the great games we want from TGS to be wiped out by 2 madmen who need a diaper change and the t.v. constantly on telling them that they aren’t sad, losers, with no good qualities and money gotten by stealing from all those they look down on thanks to their father being powerful and dying leaving undeserved power vacuum that they then got sucked into.

Happy 10 year downward spiral!
I don’t know about the vast majority, but I would gladly give up these “sales”, and have much more excitement and enthusiasm if the old PlayStation Store update format came back. Alas, we know that’s not happening, so cheers!

Fuhr31 said:

August 23rd, 4:14 pm

the problem with PS Store is that sales are based on inflated base prices. Older games need a permanent price drop like you see in retail, then we can talk about sales. When the sales at best only bring prices down to what you see everyday in retail, then they arent really sales at all.

anszbd1 said:

August 23rd, 6:46 pm

The sale can be better though.

FWIW Transistor is the highlight of my PS+ subscription, in that it was both not on my radar at all and turned out to be one of my favorite games on the system. I’ll probably be nabbing Firewatch and cleaning up my wishlist a bit.
