Well, that's ****ing rip-off. All I got was some exclusive themes which I don't use, Max Payne (the PS2 game) and a bunch of indie games which don't look very interesting. Yay.

Sorry! Didn't mean to mislead. Also, it sucks that your version is more expensive and doesn't have the same stuff. Maybe they'll fix it? Hit up Google, I would, but it's blocked at work.

Nah, I should've really done my research. It's not much more expensive as it's a 90 day deal aside from the exchange rate. 5€/month.

I read the original blog post just now and it doesn't say anywhere that it's US exclusive, and it was an E3 deal as well. Should be worldwide, but I'm not seeing anything yet.


EDIT: According to the EU PSN blog, we're getting the update tomorrow, 6th of June.

The EU freebies are:

- LittleBigPlanet 2
- InFamous 2
- Motorstorm Apocalypse
- Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD
- Outland
- Renegade Ops
- Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
- Chime Super Deluxe
- Darksiders

So, no Just Cause 2 for me. ****, I really wanted that game, since I had it in my old PC and quite liked it. That being said, I ain't complaining. Infamous 2 should be good, never tried LittleBigPlanet but I've heard good things about it and Motorstorm seems intriguing for me as I love racing games.

It looks like these games will be available for 12 weeks until they're rotated. This system, if true, will be a good reason to actually stay as a PS+ subscriber.

Oh that's cool, glad you're not getting screwed. The other cool thing is discounts on DLC and PSN games.

I just can't believe PS+ gives you free games and Xbox Live doesn't. That was a way bigger waste of money IMO.

Darksiders, Warhammer, Stranger's Wrath, Infamous 2, and LittleBigPlanet 2 are all really good.

You'll probably really like Motorstorm, being into racing and such.

Watched the Xbox and PS3 events at E3, God of War: Ascension looked great, Black Ops 2 looks decent and Halo 4 looks pretty good. Might even have to check out that new South Park game.

I'm more into simracing to be honest but I never say no to a nice arcade blast.

So, WILDhockeyfan you went and did it. We had a gentleman's agreement that nobody would pick Wild in our NHL 12 league!

That mentioned, anyone up for some NHL 12 league or online VS? I guess it's more relevant to this thread than the EASHL one...

What a ****** E3. Wii U just clearly isn't ready for launch this year; it's basically Pikmin, Mario, and... honestly were there even any other games?

MS and Sony are pretty obviously wrapping up development to move on to new systems because they had almost nothing for current gen systems.
MS: More Gears of War and Halo is OK, I guess. At least they're trying to make them very different from the existing trilogies, but man it just seems like time for an entirely new series.
Sony: The Last of Us looks pretty awesome. More God of War is just so unappealing at this point.

The new Need for Speed looks like a lot of fun, but I still wish Criterion would hurry up and make another Burnout.

Challenge: Name an interesting game shown at this year's E3 that is not a sequel/franchise.

I came up with The Last of Us and literally nothing else.

I think were reaching that point in society where almost nothing we come up with is truly original. So now everything is a sequel, remake, or spin off of something else.

They need to make NFS Most Wanted again with more cars, bigger map and better graphics. That's all I'm asking from them.

Well, Portal was pretty original.

But I think you're right. That being said, I wouldn't oppose an improved version of, say, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, or Metropolis Street Racing, or Virtua Tennis, or... hell, name any decent Dreamcast game or early 2000s/late 90s PC game.

And I really wish Geoff Crammond gets his **** together and finally makes Grand Prix 5.

Well, it was a video game take on this: The portable hole.

So it wasnt THAT original. Just a slightly different take on the concept.

Watch dogs looks AMAZING for an IP that came completely out of the blue. Literally, no one even knew it existed 5 days ago.

Aside from that? Yeah... Pretty underwhelming E3. Based on the rumor mill, it may be near-death anyway...

That new PS3 exclusive coming out looks pretty decent. It's from the makers of Heavy Rain. I think it's called Beyond: Two Souls.

PS Store update now online!

Downloading Motorstorm Apocalypse ATM. 6791MB, ugh. And InFamous 2 is in queue, 15GB. That's going to take a while, even with 10MB connection. Download speed about 1MB/s, which means it'll take bit under 2 hours to download Motorstorm and some 5 hours to download InFamous 2.

That being said, thankfully I can pause the downloads if/when we're going to play NHL 12 tonight.

So, I finally figured out how to get minecraft to run for more than ten minutes at a time. I'm not really seeing the appeal so far...

I've got a house. And I can't quite see why I should do anything more, I survive every night with almost no effort.

It's in my queue at Goozex. So eventually I'll try it, just wanted to know if anyone else did.

Surviving the night isn't really the goal.

I equate Minecraft to playing with Legos. You can build practically whatever you want, dig really deep mines, find different elements. My enjoyment of the game isn't really focused on the end-game - and there is a final goal. I usually have the most fun just messing around.

That's fair, I guess I just need to mess around a bit more.
