You guys were right. It was just too many games that I’ll never play. Got refunded for the 4 i knew i would never touch...

Congratulations?

(I'm wondering which four they were.)

NO point in paying for Jax 3 and Sly Cooper which are both playable for free with the PS Plus tier you and I are on.

But will you both still be on those tiers when you get around to wanting to play them? Or will the games still be on there either for that matter?

I mean rarely do games not go lower (or at least go on sale for the same price) over time, so what's the rush? This isn't disappearing from shelves and unless there are Forza Horizon like license shenanigans...

I just add to my Steam wishlist (and Epic when it's not on Steam yet). EVERY game hits 75% off. I have two plugins, one that tells me if the current sale price is the lowest (and how often it hits lowest) and another that tells me if it's on a subscription service like Gamepass. Those are invaluable.

I have enough time for just Disney Speedstorm (and 5 mins of Dreamlight Valley dailies a day) right now since they just added a TON of content to get through.

Sly and Jak weren’t free. Those were purchased and I am on the premium or whatever tier. Maybe the old ones, which I think I dl’d long time ago but the latest one wasn’t. And, I returned: Afterimage, Jak 2 & 3, and #Blud. And, Still Wakes the Deep.

Heard the Max Payne trilogy is pretty good. Is that accurate? Iím so used to FPS, might be hard to go third person, but for the right game I would.

Sly definitely is free on the top tier.


I can't tell about Jak 2 since I own the trilogy already.

Well, we each have our hobbies. I once made a list of all the games I want to play. It turned out quite extensive, and I realized I'd never have the time to play them all. I thought you were literally gonna play all those games, thus living my dream, in a sense. So my envy was genuine.

I mean that makes sense as an assumption considering the title of this thread...

The servers went down yesterday for 48 hours. My deadline clock to finish Erdtree has started. Once Friday comes, nothing else will matter.

oh, i know. i had it on GameCube and would have finished it, but got stuck at one point and just never went back. i bought incarnations in the past, i think i have it on xbox. but, i am going to jump into this straight away i think bc i haven't played it since GC. i hope it looks like a truly good remaster.

SameÖ but I have forgotten everything about the game except for the joy I had playing it. Glad to have the opportunity to replay and finish it.

me too. i have no idea what it was about or how it played. bits and pieces, like a boat and water i remember, but everything else is fuzzy so it will be like playing for the first time.

Bought Dragon Quest VIII (PS2) a couple of days ago, waiting for it to be shipped.





Listed in VG condition, includes the box it originally came in, the FFXII demo disc + both manuals.
