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.

Destiny 2 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2018 by getbent57

Played the open beta for Destiny 2 when it was out last summer (July 2017).  Back then like the smooth movement but it was very boring to play.  Felt very generic.  Well gave it another try now that is one of the free game for PlayStation Plus members (September 2018).  The open levels of the game are the same from the beta.  Forced myself thought that again.  Wanted to see what happens after that.  Once you get passed that the game becomes much better.  Only played about three story missions and one public event.  Must say this was very fun.  Think I will be keep playing it.  Well until Red Dead is out.  If you are a PS Plus member and have the hard drive space (80 GB’s or so) it’s well worth the download.
