  1. Excellent prices on those 3 games we got to vote on. The winning one (which is a bit shit) is only £6.49. And the 2 losing games are just £11.19 with the discount.

    And probably not as shit.

    Yes, I’ve had an afternoon of PS4 fun. Despite the retro graphics, STFU is interesting (possibly the best of the PS+ games). And Armello is an excellent game that should have won the vote. But maybe it’s a bit too complicated? It’s Beatrix Potter’s Game of Thrones. With hexagons. The best of all the shapes.

    • So after a bit more of Armello, I’m kind of completely hooked on it. The basic rules of the game are quite simple, explained in a handy tutorial. Then you start playing a proper game (which takes about 45-60 minutes) and it gets addictive. And the random nature of everything, along with some quite evil cards makes it even more fun. You might be doing quite well, and then something goes horribly wrong. Not in an annoying, unfair way. Something to adapt to and fight back from.

      And it looks nice and sounds lovely. Lisa Gerrard, who I’m sure most of you have never heard of, wailing away nicely in the background.

      Why couldn’t it have won the vote? Still, it’s worth £11.19 anyway.

      • Lisa Gerrard? That’s interesting, i’m a fan of Dead Can Dance but i still think the game probably won’t be for me. I’ll have to watch someone stream it so i can check out the music.

        STFU isn’t bad but after a few minutes it seemed i was using the rewind button as often as i was using the regular controls.

        Also, i’ve only barely tried it out but Grow Home seems quite charming, the procedural animation is both amusing and cute and it seems like quite a relaxing game to play.

      • I thought it was her. Reminded me of Gladiatoe.

      • Yes, it’s Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance. And surprising that at least 2 other people know who she is.

        For everyone else, watch The Mist. It’s a great film, and features just about the best use of a (non-original) song in a film, ever. Right at the end.

        As for STFU, isn’t the whole point to use the rewind button lots? By the time you get to the first boss, everything makes sense. Shoot lots, rewind time, add another player into the mix and repeat until lots of shooting occurs. The bosses _won’t_ die in the time allowed with a single player.

        At some point, it all suddenly makes sense. And you forget about the terrible retro graphics.

      • Oh, and some of the Armello soundtrack is on their website at armello.com right at the bottom of the page. Click on the button to play it.

      • I thought the rewind was something you would only use when you messed up a level but yeah it’s definitely one of the main mechanics of the game.

        I’ll have a look at the website too, thanks.

  2. I’ll grab the plus content but The Witcher 3 is keeping me busy for now.

  3. I see the Metal Gear/Mad Max pricing is as baffling as ever! Same price in €/Aus$, but £10 difference in UK.

    • maybe it’s because they’re going to have to start actually paying the VAT they charge soon.

  4. i wish they’d state whether Vita games worked on the Playstation TV or not.

    • Agreed, do we just assume they all work now!??

      • I think we assume the exact opposite. As cute as the little chappie is he seems to have been cast aside already.
