I just started Nights of Azure. Saw it was on Ps now in the past and didn't know if it would stay long so I decided to give that a go. Not far with it yet but it's an action type jrpg which I generally love.

@Th3solution I wouldn't upgrade for Avengers sp alone no unless you have only 1 month to go or something. Otherwise I would wait until there are more games you want to play then upgrade and play those games at the end of the subscription so you get the most for the least amount of money

@Lavalera Yeah, that’s a good strategy. I have a handful of games on Extra that I now want to try, but nothing immediately. Stray, Avengers, Last Stop, Deliver Us the Moon, FF7R DLC, Elder Scrolls Online, Kingdom Come Deliverance, Prey, Everybody’s Golf, GoT Iki Island DLC, etc. But nothing that I’m going to play right away so I’m waiting until I’m ready to play one of those, then I’ll upgrade.

I've been playing some more R&C: A Crack in Time via streaming and it remains very good

Post Elden Ring, I downloaded a bunch of games from Extra including:(takes deep breath) Guardians of The Galaxy, Tetris Effect, SoulCalibur VI, Townsmen, Car Mechanic Simulator, THPS 1 + 2 and Curse of the Dead Gods. OK, the last two are from Essential.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

May have mentioned this before (I'm completely unsure) but I'm planning on starting Deliver Us The Moon this week. I've heard it's a very good game and its upcoming sequel Deliver Us Mars sure has a good amount of hype and excitement building up around it online. I believe DUTM isn't incredibly long — maybe the same length as Stray? — so if that is the case then I should possibly have it done in no time. Just... finding that time currently is the issue.

Can usually be found doing something. Often seen wearing clothes.

Just wants to play Silksong...

I'm playing Yakuza LAD now and enjoying it so far. My biggest complaint is the lack of full voice acting. It is annoying when a character says the first word than the rest is text. I'd rather they don't say anything if it's not going to be fully voiced. When at first it happened, I thought the game glitched. It's a minor annoyance to what is turning out to be a fun game, noting I'm only 5 hours in.

@Kairu
Yeah it's an interesting enough experience and like you say very short. I did it a few weeks ago and think first play through was around 5-6 hours or so, then another couple for collectables and trophy clean up. I enjoyed it well enough.

@Elodin Tales of Arise did a similar thing, where are lot of the optional dialogue isn't fully voiced. I understand that budgets are limited and there's a ton of talking in these games, so I didn't mind it that much personally.

@Elodin It's pretty standard fare for the Yakuza series, probably because of the sheer amount of dialogue. I think Y6 was the only to be fully voiced.

Not that I minded too much as I always played with Japanese dialogue so it meant I could skip through the written dialogue quickly.

Elodin

@Thrillho @Voltan yeah, I've noticed it in other games as well. It just bothers me. Not a terrible complaint just a minor one. Still a great game.

A game I want to recommend to adventure fans is 11-11 Memories Retold. Beautiful WW1 story game.

@dschons agreed! I played it on PS4, and it is highly recommended.

The art style may seem a little odd, but once the story gets going it is beautiful.

Th3solution

@dschons @HarmanSmith Thanks for the recommendation. I’ve been on a WWI kick lately and was not aware of this game. I haven’t upgraded to Extra yet, but here’s another game to put on the list for when I do it eventually.

@Th3solution Hope you like it! As a bit of trivia, it has Elijah Wood's voice acting.

When I saw this title on PS Extra/Premium (I think here it is called "Deluxe" - man, Sony did mess up the tiers by region) I thought "well, that's a nice title I hope more people will play".

Now, I am starting "Last Day of June", one which I found interesting since I saw it, but I never get to buy.

dschons

@Th3solution Very welcome! Hope you'll enjoy it. It has a nice bit of historic background information when you find collectibles as well.

@HarmanSmith IIRC correctly, Last Day of June features music by Steven Wilson, which got me interested. Good to know it's on the service too.

@Th3solution I really enjoyed 11-11 too, fantastic historical game. It was made in collaboration with Arrdman Animation of Wallace and Gromit fame. The story was really strong and balanced nicely between the various characters.

I'll see you again in 25 years.

HarmanSmith

@Voltan You're right! That's a nice plus (even if some of the themes, IIRC, are "recycled" from Hand Cannot Erase, methinks).

Anyway, it is worth a look

Playing through Assassin's Creed Valhalla. I've played the others on PC, but had gone right off the series (even if Odyssey was decent). This is more of the same. It's alright. It's still not really Assassin's Creed, to me.

I’ve been playing Lego Star Wars III, which I started off a bit unsure about but now I’m totally convinced that it’s really quite good. I think the problem was that I did the Count Dooku missions first, which were primarily the RTS-esque levels, and I really dislike RTS games. The General Grievous levels were a lot better and closer to the older Lego levels. The animations are really impressive actually, each lightsaber wielder feels different and the lightsabers even cause sparks when they brush against the environment. While I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the first season of the Clone Wars, I did recognise a few set pieces from the show and they totally nail the recreation. Each level is suitably epic due to the show following an anthology format, so you don’t have the slow build that a movie has. The scale of the levels is impressive even coming off some of the newer Lego games. It puts the Marvel ones to shame.

Think you said it was your favourite Lego game @RogerRoger and I can definitely see why! Just got the Asajj Ventress levels now and if they’re as good as the General Grievous levels then I could see it being pretty high in my personal ranking too.

Plumbing’s just Lego innit. Water Lego.
