Qore Episode 41 – October Early Access

Is this enough to convince doubters (and possibly haters… yeah, definitely haters as well) to subscribe to PS+? What discounted content will you get over this period? Don’t forget that if you subscribe to a full year of PS+ (or even for three months) the $50 (or whatever they’re charging for the three months) you spend counts towards the $60 Sony has “will you kindly” told us to spend to get $10 worth of PSN Store Credit in November for free!

I’ll be buying Explodemon, Star Trek: D-A-C, Under Siege (70% which makes it a $5.99 game with a Platinum? SOLD!), Prehistoric Isle in 1930 (played it soooooooo much at Arcades back in the day), Valkyria Chronicles II DLC (unless it’s a Bundle of the game, which I already own, and the DLC) and probably some booster packs for the free Elemental Monsters PSN release along with some of the Only on PSN content (all five PS2 ports if done right and we’re working on getting all the exclusive PSN games for us to review for you guys as well.

    Yes pixeljunk is discounted! Thats a must buy for me( I have almost all the pixeljunk games), but i was gonna wait for a ps+ deal, and here it is

  2. #2 by dragon290513 on October 4th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    seems a bit underwhelming compared to last month but still, who am i to complain :))

  3. #3 by Ajescent on October 4th, 2011 [ 2320 Points ]

    Nice haul, hope EU is just as good.

  4. #4 by EdEN on October 4th, 2011 [ 131361 Points ]

    @dragon290513: Last month was RE month and october is diversity month. All the discounted content makes up for a smaller “free game” selection. The list is also missing the next “SEGA Genesis game with trophies” release so we’ll hear about that one soon.

  5. #5 by Matt Ferrell on October 4th, 2011 [ 130 Points ]

    Cool stuff for October!

  6. #6 by Pedro on October 4th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    I’m either very cheap or very hard to convince… maybe both.

    But the thing is, I’m still not convinced getting a PS+ subscription is worth it, I don’t think I buy that many downloadable titles.

  7. #7 by Isli on October 4th, 2011 [ 40685 Points ]

    @Pedro: It also depends if you like the games that been available for free. There have been a some really good games available for free with PS+, so it’s not just dependent on what you buy.

    For those who are interested, we reviewed “Costume Quest” and its one DLC package here on the blog: http://www.ps3blog.net/2011/02/17/costume-quest-dlc-review/

  9. #9 by Darklurkr23 on October 4th, 2011 [ 17446 Points ]

    It’s funny because ELemental Monsters is like .99 cents XD Great deal PS Plus :D Unless they included some boosters or something.

  10. #10 by Markus on October 4th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    I’m going to give Costume Quest a go soon. Looks like good fun :)

  11. #11 by EdEN on October 5th, 2011 [ 131361 Points ]

    @Darklurkr23: It IS $0.99… and that’s just great since a buck opens up the way for you to get a LOT of trophies (which I loooove) before having to spend more $$$ into the game. Had it been free from the start (like Free Realms and the new DCU Online model) there would be no trophies from the start. There’s even a platinum in it and you would have to spend $12.50 (ALL DLC) +$19.99 (for 100 online play tokens) AT LEAST for it so a theoretical $32.49 for a Plat ain’t that bad. I’ll try the game today-tomorrow and see if I should spend money on the DLC (as all it does is open up more cards faster).

    @Markus: Costume Quest is very fun. Getting it for free is great and you should get the Grubbins on Ice DLC if you like the main game.

    @premiersoupir: That review sold me on the game and the DLC since I got both at 50% hehehe.

    elemental monsters is a great game . Very good haul for plus members this month

  13. #13 by ZFM12 on October 5th, 2011 [ 1415 Points ]

    Very Great Week for PS+ Members

  14. #14 by Darklurkr23 on October 5th, 2011 [ 17446 Points ]

    Hey I get any trophies for just downloading the free part w/o paying? You know always love adding to the %

  15. #15 by kennygk on October 5th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    @Darklurkr23 Yes you get trophies for playing the free trial

  16. #16 by kennygk on October 5th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    does anyone think that about a blob is worth a buy? I played the demo and I really enjoyed it

  17. #17 by dragon290513 on October 6th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    i thought you unlocked the trophies but only actually get them when you buy the game?

  18. #18 by Markus on October 6th, 2011 [ 4322 Points ]

    @Eden Yea, I’m enjoying it. Good ole fashioned turn based action!

  19. #19 by Isli on October 6th, 2011 [ 40685 Points ]

    @kennygk: Yeah, it’s worth a purchase if you liked the demo. It’s a pretty fun game-a little short (obviously-it’s downloadable), but I found it quite relaxing.

  20. #20 by Squirtbot on October 6th, 2011 [ 115 Points ]

    4 Elements HD on sale… YES! Didn’t think it would get reduced that quick.

    Also, finally joined PS+ last month… never saw anything that was interesting to pull me into a subscription, but last month and this months content has been great and I’m happy with it so far.

  21. #21 by kennygk on October 6th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    dragon290513: i thought you unlocked the trophies but only actually get them when you buy the game?  

    Yes actually your right, I always just assumed that because the trophies pop up when your playing they are automatically added to your trophy list, but you have to play the full game to unlock any trophies you get in the trail

  22. #22 by kennygk on October 6th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    @Isli okay thanks i’ll think about buying it

  23. #23 by EdEN on October 6th, 2011 [ 131361 Points ]

    Wait, was there a change to that? Last time I checked all progress you made you got to keep should you buy the game from PSN (think it doesn’t work for retail purchases but I could be wrong) and it is THEN when trophies unlock.

  24. #24 by dragon290513 on October 6th, 2011 [ 7218 Points ]

    yeah there is 2 stage of unlock, when you got it in trial mode, you can see it in your trophy collection but not on your friend tab. Once you actually bought it then it will show there, and the PS website. Though I can be wrong since last time i did that was when the tomb raider game came out digitally a while ago.

  25. #25 by Kane112 on October 6th, 2011 [ 32937 Points ]

    oh great month for plus members

  26. #26 by kennygk on October 12th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    What happened to pixel junk side scroller? Is it only under the “only on PSN” category or has it been taken off cause I could not find it last night.

  27. #27 by EdEN on October 12th, 2011 [ 131361 Points ]

    @kennygk: Sidescroller is part of the “Only on PSN” line and will be released on october 25.

  28. #28 by kennygk on October 13th, 2011 [ 24968 Points ]

    Hmm strange, i’m almost 100% positive i saw it with the price listed 25% off and available to buy.
