Badlands

Lord Of The Fallen

Journey

My pick of the games are Journey which is as always brilliant.

The other two games are also fun and well worth playing this month if you liked limbo give Badlands a go.

Lords of the fallen is an intresting take on a RPG and is fun and again worthy of playing.

PlayStation Plus September Opinon

The games for Septembers PlayStation Plus are
Journey

Lords of the Fallen

 

Journey

Is a great game and well worth a play however by now I would have though anyone that doesn’t have it just doesn’t want to play it. So as a PS+ game is a bit of a waste.

Lords of the Fallen

I don’t know anything about this game so in that way I’m interested in seeing the video’s I have just seen make it look a little like god of war so it may be interesting at the very least.

 

I’m still holding out that Sony have something planned for PlayStation plus in relation to their Conference on the 7th of September.

 

Time will tell but as of now not a great month for PS+

Amazon Gift card and Playstation Plus Purchase

This Christmas I got a lot of Amazon gift cards and vouchers and knowing that my PlayStation plus is due to expire in January I decided to use my giftcard balance to try and buy a 12 month subscription.

On trying to purchase one of the codes i was asked to validate my account with a debit or credit card.

Turns out that this is just a security feature and that money is taken from the gift card balance and not the card unless there isn’t enough balance of course.

New batch of lets play video’s

I have been pretty busy on the video front. I have several new videos on my youtube Channel

Check it out Here.

 

Main recent videos of not as far as I’m concerned are

Let’s Play World of Guns Tutorial Parts 1 and 2

World of guns is a game where you have a 3d model of a gun in this instance an ak47 and you can disassemble and reassemble it. The game part is pitting you against your friends and the world and challenges you to disassemble and reassemble in the fastest time possible while remembering which part goes where.

The 3d models seem very accurate and things like xray mode and split mode which allow you to fire the gun and see how it works make this game really interesting if your even remotely interested in guns or how they work.

 

Let’s Play Don’t Starve Day 7-8

The next part in my Don’t Starve let’s play series. I’m really enjoying this still have no idea what im doing as you maybe able to tell but at least im not dead yet.

 

Let’s Play Simraceway. Race!

I love racing games but it can be very difficult to play and record them. This is one of the two video’s that I have done playing the game Simraceway a really good Free to Play racing game on PC. For anyone interested I was using a Playstation 3 controller with MotionJoy to control the car. I can tell you it was a pain in the butt to get working but it is an ok way to control them if you don’t have a wheel. Unfortunately I didn’t count on the lag both network and fps.

 

 

There are a few more videos as well that I have uploaded Including a nice trailer for Project Cars [That game is looking amazing] And I have a load more coming soon. Check them out on my channel Here and  if you like what you see please do Subscribe

I do seem unable to keep to any sort of schedule for posting things on this blog for which i do apologise.

This part actually covers two months September and October hopefully Novembers will be done on time and within a week of the main playstation plus update.

anyway with out any further to do  this is how I’m shaping up so far

So this is how it stacks so far at the current time [19/10/10]

Playstation plus -39.99
Wipeout HD +13.99

So as you can see I’m now well into profit actually the amount I’m now up is rather surprising even to me.

Now lets see how much more I can make.

Is PlayStation Plus A Good Deal? Part Two

This is part two of my ongoing mission to track my Playstation plus transactions and to see whether or not Playstation plus is a good deal.

I have bought the year subscription for £39.99 English pounds and just like This Article from the guys at IGN.com im tracking my savings.

I’m following the same rules that have been set out by IGN which are as follows

For the next year, IGN PlayStation Executive Editor Greg Miller and IGN Guides Guru Colin Moriarty will track their PlayStation Plus PlayStation Network purchases every Wednesday. If they buy a full price game, it won’t be logged here. On the chalkboard below, we’ll track what the “free” content would have cost them as well as the discounts they’re receiving. Now, these figures will only include new stuff that the boys have downloaded. If they already own a piece of content, it won’t be included just because it has been discounted or marked as free. This is strictly what they’ve downloaded under the PlayStation Plus umbrella to date.

I will trace how much i actually save assuming that i actually save anything. I will try to do this as quickly as i can after the uk store has been updated and intend to do it quicker than i did this time around this has been delayed due to a dead ps3 you can read about my thoughts on my new slim Here.

So this is how it stacks so far at the current time [31/07/10]

All price are from the UK store and in Pounds and pence (£)

Playstation plus -39.99
Wipeout HD +13.99
Destruction Derby +3.99
Field runners +3.99
Age of zombie +3.99
Steel & titanium pack +4.79
Sackboy on the run theme +1.59
Alien Zombie Death +2.49
Blast Off +2.49
Origami Swan Avatar +0.20
Origami Butterfly Avatar +0.20
Grand Total -2.27

It was a bit of a quiet update for me i already owned a lot of the stuff that was available still got a couple of good games to play for 5 mins also had an hour full game trial of mushroom wars. That games a lot of fun might well purchase it at some point in the future. Also a couple of demos were made available early to us plus subscribers so although store content for me was poor there has been one or two nice surprises.

I expect that the new Playstation plus content will be on tomorrows [Wednesday  1st September] And with me having the weekend off of work the next update should be up by the end of the week.
