Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time and Arcadegeddon will be the PS5 games for July 2022.

Good month, games I haven't played before.
Actually not too bad. Though they would give us really bad titles buts actually ok
Solid lineup. At least they haven’t trashed essential Ps plus yet. Hopefully it doesn’t go the way of games with gold as soon as game pass became more of a thing.
Thanks for that insightful comment.
I think Arcadegeddon is made by (or has ties to) Raphael Sadiiq, of Tony Toni Tone fame. Im excited for it..!
Pretty decent month, Crash 4 is a really good continuation of the Crash series. Unfortunately, Man of Medan was pretty disappointing as it performed pretty poorly on a base PS4 (texture pop-in, frame rate dips, freezes etc.), it had an interesting premise that was handled poorly and is easily the weakest of Supermassive's 'interactive drama' games. I would still recommend to give it a go since it's included with the sub.
I thought man of Medan was fantastic, atmospheric and very memorable.
Same. To me all 3 are really good.
I still had the pop in and such on PS5. The premise and characters are pretty cringe as well. Little Hope was slightly better and the technical issues were improved.
Ridiculous how they are making it hard to find the essential ps plus games in the store.
It already was a bit of a pain but yeah now I need to click through like 4 different menus and basically go on a treasure hunt for them.
Are you on PS4? Because its pretty straight forward on PS5.
Click on the ps+ tile, and they are right there…
No. It is deliberately obfuscated. Takes several clicks and lots of scrolling. Then one of the games "Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker" does not even have a link to click, you have to search in-store manually.
They are deliberately burying them under the higher-tier game catalogue.
It's one tap away in the App. You can either select the big Playstation Plus promo or select the + symbol next to Playstation Store at the top. I used to scroll right and hit Subscriptions, but the essential games are no longer in that link. You have to hit the Playstation Plus promo.
That's great for app users.
Wonder what rubbish shovelware Microsoft will give us this month. At least PS Plus is still decent, for now…
Eh I'd trade these monthly games for day 1 first party titles in game pass over some old games that you can buy cheap like Gold and PS+ games.
Doesn't change Xbox Live "Gold" free games are pretty sad nowadays.
Forza Horizon 5 isn't really "free" for me. I wanted the quality of life improvement so I bought the premium pack. Best to buy that early to get the benefits early (to save a fair amount of time). The early glitches required me to replay certain portions of the games and I was lucky what I lost was the house that's included in the VIP pack. Had I actually spent my in game credits and purchased a house (then losing it due to the glitches earlier on), I wouldn't be happy.
FH3 never entered GamePass, FH4 will eventually leave GamePass. I am a fan of FH series so I still have to fork out money to buy them. It doesn't feel good that Microsoft milk me for every FH game and ultimate add-on.
FH5 hot wheels expansion pack coming up. I paid so I will get to play it. If you don't paid, will you get to play it when that's released? Doesn't really feel "Ultimate" does it?
Yeah those 'quality' day 1 games.
All shit except for Forza.
yeah such trash….
You're not a fan of the critically acclaimed Joe Danger 2: Buy The Movie?
Still waiting for Uncharted lost legacy to pop.
Man of Medan is a great coop story!
Nice, can sell the physical copy now.
Man of Medan been on my list for a while. I've been waiting for the Dark Pictures triple-set to get cheap enough. I guess this will tide me over for now!
This one pretty much shows you what they're all like.
3-4 hour co-op short rides that aren't bad, but on the same note, aren't really worth a full price game.
Has to be played co-op though or it would lose its neatness.
I enjoyed Until Dawn… I assume these are along the same lines as that?
It's no where near as high production as Until Dawn.
But yeah, pretty much a mini tale version of Until Dawn that's co-op.
@Ruddaga: i assume they chose this title as it’s part of a trilogy while also a subtle way to promote The Quarry
@b0rnwithabeard: It's part of an anthology. The games aren't actually connected in any way other than the narrator (who is probably the best thing about the games).
@Ruddaga: i mean as in they’re all made by the same developer, Supermassive Games
Sweet, I've wanted to play Crash and Medan for ages. Thanks Sony
Man of Medan was absolutely awful. One of the corniest and worst intro's into a game I've ever played. I've heard the others in the series are better but this was terrible.
Is CB4 and Arcadegeddon PS5 only this month?
It’s comments like yours that make me wonder if I even played the same game, I thought it was fantastic and dripping with atmosphere and foreboding.
Waiting for next PS Plus discount
Now officially confirmed: https://blog.playstation.com/2022/06/29/playstation-plus-mon...
Crash Bandicoot 4
Man Of Medan
Thanks for the links.
Does gamepass have monthly links like this?
Beasts of Maravilla Island
Games with Gold
GamePass is great, but Games with Gold suffered greatly.
It is beyond ridiculous that Sony have made it so hard for Plus users to get the games they have paid for. I will not be extending my plus subscription anytime soon!
Why is it only downloading the man of Medan trial???? It’s so annoying it won’t let me play base game
