Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2022 by getbent57

When Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time came out back in 2020 it has been on my to buy list.  Just never got around to it.  Has happy to hear it is one of the July (2022) PlayStation Plus games.  So downloaded it right way.  It has the same gameplay we all know and love.  However with much needed modern touches as well.  The feature I like the most is.  There are no set number of lives.  When you die and you will, it starts you back at the last checkpoint.  With fast load times.  You can change this at anytime to have the old school set number.  So far have played four levels.  Liking what I am seeing and playing.  Even if I did die 13 times in the third level.

Days Of Play 2022

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2022 by getbent57

Forgot to talking about this.  A few days ago (May 25, 2022) the PlayStation Day of Play started.   They are having a sale in the PS Store as well as their mech store.  In past years other retailers would get into as well.  Not sure if that is happing.  The next time I am out will take a look around Walmart.  Would really like to the a new controller.  Don’t really want to play full price.  You can see the blog post > here.  The event ends on June 8, 2022.

All-New PlayStation Plus

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on March 29, 2022 by getbent57

There has been rumours for a few weeks now that Sony would put out a new service to compete with Xbox Game Pass.  Well today (March 29, 2022) they put out a post on their blog going over it.   Which you can read > here.  This new PlayStation Plus will have three options.  The first is what PlayStation Plus is now but with a new name, PlayStation Plus Essential.  The next tier is called PlayStation Plus Extra.  Is the essential tier, with about 400 PS4 and PS5 games to play.  The third and most expensive is called PlayStation Plus Premium.  This has what other two have.  Then add PS3 game though streaming.  The biggest thing it has PlayStation, PS2 and PSP games.  This all sounds good but think that it will be out of my price range.  In that post the don’t say the Canadian prices.  The US price for the last tier is $120.00 a  year.  So guessing that will be about $150.00 or more here.  These new options will launch in June (2022).  But then there will more news and lots of videos talking about it.

DiRT 5 Another Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2022 by getbent57

Yet, another post talking about DiRT 5.  At this point have put in about seven hours.  While I like the game am starting to get a bit bored with it all ready.  Have been playing the career mode.  There is lot of variety with the vehicles.  However all the races seem to play out the same.  Have reach a point were the races become to tuff so I had to lower the difficultly.  Going to keep picking at it and only do a few races at a time.  Unlike there other DiRT games don’t feel compelled to keep going.

DiRT 5 Hands On Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2022 by getbent57

Have put some more time into DiRT 5.   From what I have played am liking it very much.  There seems to be lots of variety with the types of vehicles mixed over different race types.  That is were I ran into some trouble.  Some of the races had no problem winning the first time out.  The other not so much.  Think that is because of the vehicle type.  Those are Super Lites and Sprint.  They were all over the track and couldn’t get them under control.  Luckily you don’t have to do those races if you don’t want to.  One race type took me my surprise is, Rock Bouncer.  You drive a rock crawler over a timed track.  Was very fun and looking forward to trying more.  If you are a PlayStation Plus members for January 2022.  It is well worth the download.

DiRT 5 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2022 by getbent57

Am a big fan of the DiRT series but haven’t gotten my hands on DiRT 5.  Well we got lucky because it is one of the games for PlayStation Plus members for January 2022.   Most times I just add these games to my list and never download any.  This one I did right way.  All so like the fact they are giving the PS4 and PS5 version out.  So when that day I do mange to get my hands on PS5 will have a better looking version.  Not like the PS4 is bad looking, it’s amazing.  So far from what I have played, have been having lots of fun.

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2020 by getbent57

Fall_Guys_Ultimate_KnockoutOne of the free PlayStation Plus game for August 2020 is Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.  Seen a much of people talking about it so gave it a try.  The file size is pretty small, just under 4GBs.  You play as little bean like thing.  They you and 59 others try to make it over, under and past crazy obstacles.  It is a battle royale game.  With the twist of being like the TV shows Wipeout or MXC.  Gave it a try for two rounds.  The first time didn’t get very far. The second got a bit farther.  Going to give it another try.  I wouldn’t have pay money for it.  However would have it had four player couch co-op.
