  • Will That’s You have a online element such as the way players were able to create their own quizzes like in the game BUZZ?

    That game really got my whole family involved because I created trivia questions about 30 family members. It brought back so many memories and conversation about each other.

    If That’s You doesn’t have something like that you guys may want to think about it. Or maybe even bring BUZZ back.

    • Yes to more Buzz, but I think that studio got shut down so some other group would have to make it.

      But “That’s You” isn’t a quiz game. It’s a party game where you take selfies, people manipulate those selfies, and everyone expresses their opinion of the people using their edited selfies as representations.

      It’s more about what other people think of other people, not a factual, but perceptual. At least as far as I can find info on it.

    • @MakaiOokami: I will give it a try, though my first reaction is “a game based on selfies sounds like a special kind of hell”.

  • a bit of a light week but sometimes people need these to re-coop their

    • It is much easier to “re-coop their wallets” when the games of the month aren’t cheap and terrible

    • PlayStation Plus is not worth the money for their “free games of the month”. Save your money and just purchase a good game instead

    • Until dawn is pretty good, the discounts you get a pretty good, the peace of mind you get from not having a thunderstorm corrupt your hard drive data and delete all your local save data, is pretty dang good.

      But you know if you have a niche’ set of games you like to play and won’t try out freebies, than yeah PS Plus might not be for you.

      I don’t get why you come to the blog comments just to troll them and complain.

      All the games that PS Plus is going to give you are going to be cheap. The publisher isn’t going to give millions of people a copy of a game that they think the can make millions off of, for hundreds of thousands of dollars. How PS Plus works is that Sony offers a lump sum, and the publisher either says yes or no, or a publisher comes to Sony and asks them to promote a game by offering PS Plus.

      Then the Publisher hopes to make some extra money on top via DLC, or word of mouth. The games have been better lately, and they are more or less on par from the competitor’s, however, the only way for Sony to outdo them is to drop PS3 and VIta support, to give at least 3 PS4 games instead of 2 of each platform.

      That’s just how things go. That’s how this stuff just works.

    • this girl seems like an xbot talking smack since until dawn is an exclusive and a good one. there should be a filter to catch trolls posting too often.

  • One of these days Clements, one of these days … you’re going to say Patapon is coming next store update :)

  • This may be the lamest summer of games I’ve ever witnessed. For the love of god, stop with the indie platformers.

    • Agreed!

    • Don’t you guys have Crash Bandicoot N Sane trilogy to be playing?

      Why don’t you guys like Indie platformers? Not enough skill to enjoy them?

    • MakaiOokami because if I wanted to play a 2d platformer that requires no skill other than jumping and occasionally shooting that looks like it was made for the Super Nintendo era I would just play it just as smoothly with equal visual quality on my cell phone.

  • Why nothing about Sword art online vs accel world ? Thisgamewill be release on 7th of july… this gameshould be on thedrop main title.. -_-

  • Another month of terrible games. PlayStation Plus is NOT worth it

    • Ok we get it. You hate PS Plus. Maybe just leave it be and it won’t bother you any longer. I myself still find value in it. You come across as very entitled.

    • Why don’t you like Until Dawn? What’s so bad about that? What’s wrong with a telltale game about deciding when and how people die? Well technically both games are about you deciding who lives, who dies, through both action, and inaction in a way that affects you emotionally.

      Why do you hate these games? What games would you rather be playing. Can you just stop being a troll and actually have a discussion about good games that you enjoy for once so that people can have a productive discussion about the hobby they spend thousands of dollars on, or are you just a whiny little entitled brat?

    • FOUR AAA games. FOUR. 2/3 of this month’s PS Plus games are AAA titles.

      It wouldn’t matter what they gave you. You would complain anyway.

      Sort your life out kid, there are thousands of better things you could do with your time.

    • I am not sure you posted nearly enough for me to understand where you stand on this, could you clarify and go f*@# yourself? on a separate note the PS store is taking forever to load. WTF?

  • Scam spam

  • MidnightDragonDX

    Was a bit surprised to see a drop until I saw most of it won’t be out until after the 4th of July.

  • that’s as kind as i can make it

  • PlayStation needs to do better on the games they offer

  • Yet another month where the games offered to PlayStation Plus are digital only and cheaper than the monthly fee

    • Until Dawn is $15-20 in retail, TellTale Game of Thrones is technically on disc even though some of the content has to be downloadable because they are too cash hungry to wait for the whole game to be finished before they put out the disc, but that’s absolutely not enough to consider it “digital only”

      So I think I figured it out. You went to the wrong dang blog post. You’re ranting and raving about the wrong games.These are all brand new games.

  • You need to do better, these games are terrible

    • I agree. I’m tired of all these indie/mobile quality games. On the other hand, it’s all relative. My Xbox consoles are collecting dust. The games are really really lacking over there. Their weekly sales and special games stink in comparison, and their Games With Gold when viewed at the end of a year are weak compared to PS+.

  • Chrisiznotonfire

    I’m surprised to see Speedrunners hit stores next week. I’ve been wanting that game to come out for playstation. Anyone know the price point?

  • We’ll see how That’s You compares to Jackbox.

  • infamousgodV2_0

    Just dropping by from my Xbox 1 web browser. Just got done listing to the blog cast too from it. I see the PlayStation trolls are at it again. People reading the blog try messaging there accounts they all have privacy settings on obvious trolls are obvious. This list right here is why i haven’t turned on my PlayStation since march. Even crash is coming to Xbox 1 Come December so i still have no reason to turn on my indieremasterjapanesestation 4. Maybe for the final fantasy 12 remake but meeh. And speedrunner was a good free game for games with gold but i Wouldn’t pay for it.

    • i think you are the troll…

    • We just got Nex Machina. I guess that’s considered Indie, but what’s wrong with remasters? Btw then you are excited about a Japanese Remaster? Go play Final Fantasy XIV. You will especially enjoy Stormblood. Amazing story there some people are even putting the Stormblood Expansion as one of their favorite RPG stories. I mean hard to blame them to be honest when you try to liberate a nation, fail miserably, and go half way around the world to liberate other people as an attempt to break up the military strength of a nation that conquers other nations, then enslaves their citizens and forces them to then go forth and conquer other nations. And of course that’s after Heavensward where we had to fight to end a 1,000 year war waged by a Dragon for specific reasons, who ended up becoming an avatar of wrath while also trying to liberate the citizenry from a lie that has basically destroyed them as a society.

  • So I guess save the ninja clans and speedrunners are two games in one. I miss games like Tokyo jungle . lets get something unique like that!

  • Well its not the best week but still its something.

  • Go back to whatever circle of hell you crawled out of.

  • Not a great week but I just picked up Shadow of Mordor for $4!!! It is topshelf and I haven’t played anything else since I got it.

  • Sword art online vs accel world, this game will be release on 7th of july… this gameshould be on thedrop main title.. -_-

  • Starwind_Amada76

    Gundam Versus is out July 6 in Japan (NA release is 9/29). You don’t need to know Japanese to play so just import the disc or download from the Japanese store.

  • Super_Devon28746


  • Accel World vs Sword Art has no digital pre-order available for NA and only available as digital, yet other regions it’s available as digital and physical and EU got the digital pre-order in the ps store like a week ago. Pretty sure the day one dlc is limited time for NA considering it has no digital pre-order available for NA.

    I know people imported Accel World vs Sword Art from other regions ps store and Play-Asia website. Not 100% sure but it’s probably a full price game. The release dates 7/7/17 and SAO Re Hollow Fragment had no digital pre-order either, guess it’s not popular enough or not a priority for Bamco

  • I can’t believe Speedrunners is finally coming to PS4! Legitimately one of the best multiplayer games I’ve ever experienced. Try it! Or not… and miss out on one of the best times of your life. Couch co-op rules!

  • great two vita games

  • I’m sitting here patiently waiting on a sale of I am Setsuna and Digimon Next World

  • been on sale alot of time

  • I know this is a little out of place, but I didn´t receive the $15 code yet…Is anyone else having the same problem?

  • Accel world vs Sword art online friday??

  • Yes Accell World vs Sword Art releases this Friday and again NA has no digital pre-order available
