    I wouldn't consider the worst game I've ever played a bonus :confused:

    Ah, that's actually a small shame for me (and me alone, if the reaction the announcement was anything to go off). I'm still playing Pro Evo 2017's master league mode regularly, and was looking forward to upgrading (but not enough to want to pay money to leave my 2017 save behind...) and at the same time I already own Detroit and Heavy Rain. Oh well, maybe next time.

    Nah, I was looking forward to playing a bit, too.

    I find David Cage games to be quite wank, so it's a definite downgrade for me.

    Ah excellent, much better month for me now. There must have been quite a backlash to PES then?

    Yeah I was looking forward to having a digital copy of PES as I never want to play it enough to get off my arse and change the disc. And yeah I'm the same with Cage games. Or any game like that in general. Will give it go though because robots and stuff.

    @SamNunn92
    I understand there was, especially from Americans if Twitter is any indication. But I've also seen a few comments suggesting there might have been licensing issues, but they may have been pulling that from their rear ends.

    Does PES19 contain loot-box type things? I stopped playing around the time they dropped the Classic teams, so I don't know. I wondered whether Sony might have baulked at giving away something with loot boxes so close to the publication of that report that suggested a link with adolescent gambling problems. (No particular basis for thinking this, just idle speculation.)

    I doubt it's anything to do with a backlash considering the shit they've put on there in the past.

    Detroit is considerably better than any of Cage's other games. Even if you haven't liked some of the others you should try it, the branches you can look at after show how diverse the story can be and that there are some pretty hefty consequences to your choices.

    That's what I was thinking, there's been much worse on there before.

    @CalamityJames interesting! Good shout re: the loot boxes involved and the timing of all the court hearings, could definitely seen to be endorsing it on Sony's part.

    For fuck sake. I just started the PS4 up thinking I'd go grab and try pro evo.

    The first time in about a year I've been looking forward to a game on plus, and they replace it at the last minute with another one of these shitty story things that are barely games.

    Did he hire a writer this time? And some decent actors?

    Yeah, would have loved to try Pro Evo actually! Detroit is one of the biggest games they've had on there for a while though, and I was a big fan of Fahrenheit and Heavy Rain.

    @Rhaegyr Clancy Brown and Lance Henriksen are fairly decent actors.

    Also horizon chase is even more fun than on the iPhone with the same banging retro soundtrack. That said it may be better suited to grabbing a race here and there on the handheld.

    I was looking forward to a bit of pro Evo as I haven't played a footy game in years.

    Oh well! A bit of nonsense story stuff might be quite fun though.

    Yet we had to put up with NBA 2K16 a while back. Sony could and should have put both up.

    It all certainly feels a bit lightweight now they arenít offering anything for the PS3 and Vita. I want a couple of proper AAA games (albeit older of course) or one very good one, something Indie and a VR offering chucked in now thereís enough older ones for that system.
    Offering so much less, effectively, Roger Sony has just had a bloody price increase.

    It's pretty obvious at this point that their stance is "you'll put up with this shit until ps5".

    And for the most part they're correct.

    I found Detroit to be excellent and Heavy Rain was also good back when I first played it so even just those make it a good month, not tried Horizon Chase yet.

    Sounds like the Pro Evo removal is down to Konami and licensing issues.

    My sub is up this month. Cant see me renewing for a while if this is the sort of shite they're putting out.

    Detroit has a 78 metascore. Hardly shite.

    Detroit was one of my favourite games of last year.

    However Quantic Dreams do seem to generate a bit of a love / hate reaction so I suspect most people that like it will already own it.

    Yeah. Detroit is really good.

    I only stopped playing it because I got so emotionally engaged with the characters that playing became too stressful...

    I had a bit of a play on Horizon Chase Turbo last night. Took me back to Top Gear 2 on my Amiga (though I did prefer the Lotus Trilogy). Now itís clearly not AAA (or possibly not even AA), but I properly enjoyed myself and on its own I feel itís worth the £4.20 I paid for this months PS+ sub. Not yet tried Detroit (or Heavy Rain) yet.

    Iím happy with this monthsí selection - certainly compared to last months offering.

    Apologies, said this before I realised they swapped out PES. Glad they did as Quantic Dream games are fairly bad, but curious oddities, and they're just different from the norm. Apart from Beyond 2 Souls. Fuck that game.

    It's alright so far, put a few hours into it. The writing is as hammy as it's ever been and the messages it send out are as in your face as ever- but it's alright! Find myself wanting to play more which is only a good thing.
