    It's a brutal time sink. In my experience it takes about 20 hours until you're sufficiently upgraded for the game to feel 'fair'. First time I've put 100+ hours into a game then come away not sure if I even enjoyed it.

    @Trowel Haha yes I've almost rage-deleted it about six times so far, but then you scrape through a tough section by the skin of your teeth and get another power up... and the sense of progress makes you persevere. Some parts really do seem unfair though, especially with the sparse check pointing.

    While youre subbed you own it already.
    It'd be nice but there's two issues with that. My sub is active for a while, but more importantly, you lose access to the PS+ sale prices if your sub lapses. It's a pretty daft system

    I was tempted to start it soon. 100 hours? I thought it'd be around 30-49!

    I think it took me about 26-27 hours to complete it at 60(ish)%.

    That was plenty for me. Id had enough of it by then and was happy to just get the main story done. It looked like there was more fucking about than I could be bothered with as the game is unbelievably obtuse.

    YYMV and all that. I do seem to be in a minority but I really couldnt be arsed to put more time into it than that (and Im a massive metroidvania fan)

    It's not even a proper Metroidvania game - the new powers you get are largely just better versions of something you could already do, and from memory a couple of the most useful ones are right at the end of the game.

    The badges are a nice idea, but in reality it just means more backtracking to fucking benches to change your loadout.

    It made me very angry throughout, but there's something very satisfying about the challenge of exploration.

    I almost 100% completed it (including DLC) at around 40hrs. So yeah, it's not quite that long. And it's also utterly brilliant imo.

    I just got a message from paypal saying I'd just paid Sony 49.99. A bit of a surprise as I'm 99% sure I turned auto renew off for PS Plus. I quick look online and a lot of people saying auto renew turns back on when you do a system software update. Anyone else had this? Seems like a borderline illegal thing to do if true.

    @up_the_ante Since I disabled autorenew I've done a load of PS4 updates, got a PS5, updated that, and auto renew is still off. Sorry man.

    I just checked my autorenew when seeing how long I had left with the BF sale. Luckily covered up until November 2021 but my autorenew had also sneakily switched on again. Then again I won't store credit card details with Sony and just use much cheaper prepaid cards so as long as my balance is low they cannot do much.

    They really should be forced to make auto-renew an opt-in not an opt-out though so this kind of thing cannot happen.

    @up_the_ante same happened to me. If you email them right away and plead your case you should be able to get a refund (try not to use any plus benefits too until you hear back)

    @theguy they recently updated PSN. You can now buy stuff in your library while you have Plus (at least you can on a PS4)

    Really? Is that just in the console store as checking a PS Plus game on the new web store it is still listed as 'download' not buy.

    @GeezaTap Thanks. I've emailed them, so will see what happens. It wouldn't be so annoying but I don't even use the service at the moment, I've only been playing single player bought games for the last few months.

    @GeezaTap You sure about this? I checked on my PS4, the web store and the app, couldn't see the option unfortunately

    Tried Just Cause 4 on the PS5...and holy shit it looks like hot garbage. It runs at 720p, has to be the worst AAA game I've ever seen. The explosion graphics are like N64 quality, it's truly awful.

    I swear JC3 looked pretty decent?

    I played it on a fairly meaty PC and it looked like shit on that, too. The character models are literally laughable.

    Dunno if its rose tinted glasses but, yeah, it certainly felt like JC3 on the PS4 looked better.

    I played JC4 on One X and it was dogshit, just to complete the trifecta of awfulness.

    I tried JC4 on an Xbox one through gamepass. It did look awful up against the much better looking but poor performing JC3 on my PS4.

    Even 1080 would be better! When you see the tornado in the distance and its such low Res that it has visible steps on the curves.

    It's a shame because the game seems fun.

    Download JC4 yesterday, Feck me it is ugly, how is this a ps4/xb1 game!

    I loved the first two, specifically 2. Didn't enjoy or complete 3, as it was a major step backwards. I have spent about 90 mins on this and I don't hate it, but as I say, it is feckin ugly!

    I loved just cause 3 but 4 awful, going to play the 3rd one again on PS5 over Christmas and looking forward to stability in the frame rate when carnage breaks out 😊

    4 is complete trash, even if you get past the degraded graphics, the missions are terrible. There is one turret mission and is so badly made. I get the feeling they had to shit the game out quickly after 3

    @Darth_Flibble
    I just don't understand where they went so wrong. JC2 is excellent. 3 was trash and from what you are all saying 4 is even worse.
    Mind you same can be said for SR2 being the pinnacle of the series. Back to JC, do we know if a fifth is in the world ?

    3 is the only one Ive ever managed to play for more than 10 minutes without getting bored. Really liked all the wingsuit stuff.
    Not played 4 yet tho.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider & Greedfall for PS4 in January and PS5 owners also get the Shark rpg Maneater.

    Seems to be a pretty decent month and start to 2021 for PS+. I haven't played any of those and it's nice to see an RPG in the 'free' game lineup for once, as they're few and far between.
