Great deal if you need some PlayStation Store credit and you're a Costco member 4 $25 gift cards for $79.99:

Ugh. Two of those have been on Game Pass for ages.
At least Axiom Verge 2 might be good.

Part 1 was damn good. Still have a favorite booked marked on my phone. When it says coming to other consoles (Xbox) soon. Now, I don’t have to wait and that it’s free…🤗

I really need to go back on Jedi Fallen Order...it looked and played pretty good....FO76 has come a long, long way from its chaotic dismal release years ago that divided the fallout Faithful. I went back a couple of months ago and it's quite fun. The Engine they use is ancient as get-out but been refined over and over so not going to win best Awesome Visual Awards but still looks decent.

Why isn’t Death Stranding free for PS Plus subscribers?

Not everything is free on PS Plus. Titles come and go. Actually the Death Stranding base game is on PS Plus Extra.

And the PS5 Director's Cut is free on Extra also. I don't understand how he comes in with a statement like that, when he clearly didn't even search the PS store.

I love the Fallout games, but haven't tried FO76 yet. I don't play online games, so that was a major strike against it. There weren't good reviews in the beginning, which also turned me away. Since it's showing up as part of the subscription, I'll give it a go. Hopefully I can have a decent solo experience. If not, no biggie.

I haven’t really played Fallout 76 either because you can’t use VATS online. And I’m a huge Fallout fan.

As I said, FO76 has come a long, long way from initial release and I was one of the harshest critics along with so many. In fact I had a PO, played the Demo and then canceled. The uproar was mainly about the infused PVEVP element which they and diehard PvPers wanted and it just ruined everything...but they finally fixed it to where it's straight up voluntary which both parties. In fact there's far more looking for players to join parties and events (which are fun) than before. I got the feeling a lot of the PvPer's have moved on since they couldn't go around in a mob and just terrorize everyone like before.

Most of the game is essentially Fallout like before....just crazy weapons, crazy enemies, lots to explore and see, collect and instead of companions in Fallot 4 you now have coop which with at least 2-3 makes life fun as some enemies can be a test. instead of helping build several incampemen and maintain you now have your own personal "House" and sky is the limit and some can be pretty fun since the Store offers some unique items especially in the lighting area along with seasonal items. more character customizations...get the game I'll gladly join as my friends have moved to other games and never get tired of exploring.

As to The VATS....it has changed but then hasn't....this article explains it but basically in Fallout 4 it slowed time...in FO76 it doesn't but it still target areas that can get more damage...Fallout 76 VATS explained - how does it work online? | GamesRadar+

Yeah I know. I should have clarified I’m a sucker for the slowed time effect. It’s just funny.

Sony confirmed that Gran Turismo 7 has a free VR mode launching next month. And Beat Saber has been confirmed as well, though it won’t be a launch title.

They also showed off Project Leonardo at CES: an accessibility-focused controller.

What does it mean for a controller to be accessible? And, I thought everyone loves the DualSense?
