Like sands through the hourglass: PlayStation Plus deals

10:00 AM on 08.12.2013 // Steven Hansen

You have no excuse not to play Gravity Rush, ya boneheads

Do you not have enough games to play because you are a literal, oiled and titanium game playing machine (or our own Chris Carter)? Well, Sony's got your back this week, like every week, with a mad array of free and discounted games, particularly for those indoctrinated in the cult of PlayStation Plus. Has anyone else had to get their robes let out, what with all the sitting around and playing 'free' games?

This Tuesday, the excellent and much loved Bit.Trip Presents Runner2 (regularly $14.99) will be made free for PS+ users. The Runner2 Good Friends character pack, normally $3, will run you $1.91. Game for zilch, less than a two dollar bill to play as characters from Super Meat Boy, Spelunky, Psychonauts, and more. Support Raz and Psychonauts, you skinflints. Or don't, I'm not in control of your finances. I just like Psychonauts.

Also available is a Tomb Raider bundle which includes Quantum Conundrum, because apparently Lara raided that grave, am I right? (I'm sure the game is excellent; I got it for free via PS+ and haven't played it yet) Regularly $45, the pack is on sale for $22.49 for everyone, $20.24 for PS+ members. It includes Tomb Raider and a bunch of DLC, like Hitman: Absolution weapons and multiplayer costume packs and map.

Lastly, a bunch of Japanese PS Vita games are going on sale over the next two weeks. Full list below. I should probably finally buy Katamari Vita at less than $4. Oh, and if you haven't played Gravity Rush yet, c'mon. It's superb. And free (for PlayStation Plus; on sale otherwise). Looking at picking anything up?

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

That test was pretty raw. Some decisions cut deep, some I didnt care for at all. But im satisified with the end result.

People are having serious anthropological discussions about video games and here I am reminding people that they have one more day to get a dumb card I painted:

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

I'm in the mood for some feel-good music. Hit me with your best feel-good VGM, people! [youtube][/youtube]

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Ok you Monday morning motherfuckers, 3 favourite fictional universes you'd like to exist in (The initial iteration of the universe had to be in videogame form) Go.

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?
