3 excellent games there, I literally just finished little nightmares and it's expansions on Xbox this morning, I quite I enjoyed the game and purchased the sequel now, what I'll get round too, going to do Digimon Survive first.

Love Yakuza LAD, finished it 100% minus the final dungeon a second time, as I don't want spend a silly amount of hours grinding, but absolutely loved this game, hopefully this brings in more fans to the Yakuza series.

Thps1+2 remake was a master class remake imo.

Great month for ps+ users, that haven't already played these titles.

Holy shit if true. Finally Tony Hawk. Been playing the old school games since I got the Deck, but now I can finally play this one.


That's a great lineup. Kind of regret buying Tony Hawk like a year ago now since I have barely put any time into it. Little Nightmares is really good, though it has one of the most brutal achievements I've come across. Was not able to platinum it.

How "scary" is little nightmares?

Horror games are not my genre at all. I'll never play silent hill or amnesia, but I'll tolerate last of us.

Good games, but the only one I haven't played is Yakuza (any of them). Can you play this one without having played the ones that came before?

Little Nightmares is good, but not as good as Inside.

It's more "cute scary". There are some grotesque characters that will try to get you etc, but nothing like those games you mention.

Damn, great month. I’ve been holding off on buying Tony Hawks pro skater because Activision sale prices are usually garbage, so I’m pretty excited about this.


Even though I already have Tony Hawk and LAD this is still a great lineup for the month.

And Little Nightmares is seemingly worth a look so I’ll get that too.


Very good month, too bad I already own THPS 1+2 and Little Nightmares. Really happy about Yakuza Like a Dragon though, I have been eyeing it for a while and I see a lot of people praising it!
How is Tony Hawk for someone who hates games with no progress/campaign/ending?
There's some minimal collectibles and plenty of stages to play. Some objectives if I remember correctly.

Then you can try to chase high scores. Shines with other people around to pass the controller around and try to top scores. It's a classic.


Great month! Already own them but glad this means more people can get Yakuza.
I was a bit unsure about them transitioning to a different battle system in Like a Dragon but I think they nailed it and it worked well.


Even after releasing their extra and premium subs, Sony just keeps releasing great games on essential.

Best deal in gaming.
