    Death Squared
    Assault Android Cactus

    Really? Super weak.
    Upvote for Splinter Cell though I suppose.


    Only great things with VF5:FS! Loved it back in the day on PS3

    Thanks OP! Can’t wait to brawl with what will surely (hopefully) be populated with online fighters!

    Yay, both companies are shit this month, we can all get along now!

    Though I mean, PS+'s games were pretty old, but some were still legit. Outside VF5, which has already been on Plus years back, nothing good going on here.

    To be fair, we're paying $5 - $8 (depending where you got your Gold from) for all four games, so it's not like we're being majorly screwed.

      But at the same time, we've had killer games in the past for the same price - MGS V, Sunset Overdrive, Sleeping Dogs, etc.


    4 letters: CRAP!


    FWIW, Death Squared is a great little couch co-op puzzler, by an aussie dev.

    It's no AAA blockbuster, that's for sure, but it's a fun game for those that are into that type of thing, and not that old.

    I made Assault Android Cactus, we are based out of Brisbane, and man these crap/hate posts feel real bad :(

    Give it a go, you might be surprised. 84 metacritic, native 4K on Xbox one X.


      Yet even you didn't upvote it? 😂


      So this is unrelated, but I've just started doing a course learning C# and Unity in the hopes that i can someday make games. Any tips or advice you could share with me?

      I'm looking for anything at this point as i know zero people who have tried their hand at coding or development.

        Set yourself lots of small achievable goals, most games that start development never meet completion so it’s important that you don’t burn out trying to go too fast too soon.

        Join local developer groups wherever you are, attend their usually monthly meet ups and make friends, get as much advice as you can about anything specific you can think of.

        Remember that every incredible game developer started out as a terrible one, and that the best way to improve is accept your mistakes and flaws so you can avoid them in the future, make everything you work on the best thing you’ve ever made (at that point).

        I’d offer more specific advice but there’s a broad range of skills and disciplines you can end up with, so it’s really up to you to find your path.


      I like the game but it would be nice to have permanent boost up with some points collection.

      Well done guys.

      Already owned the game :)
