Damn that’s a nice lineup. Thymesia and R&C Rift apart are in my wishlist but other releases simply had priority. Humanity also looks interesting, but we knew about that one already.


We are getting closer to day1.
I swear people say this every time while the opposite remains true lol. Rift Apart’s 2 years old now, their live service games were already expected to be on PC day one, not their single-player titles.

Great month. Sakuna has been on my Wishlist since launch.
They are doing a great job with the games lately.
Premium still sucks tho.

I still honestly believe the library of games on PS+ Extra is significantly better than GamePass. And it's almost half the price annually.
Sony slightly kneecapped gamepass with the revamp. Yeah gamepass still gets more day ones, but the past year wasn't exactly nothing to right home about. Quite frankly the older titles ps plus is getting is looking tastier.


Finally Ratchet! I was waiting for Ratchet, sackboy and Kena to be on plus extra to play them. Another good month for me just for Ratchet.
