    Even ignoring the whole “tim schafer/double fine” thing I have to question the logic of putting a halloween game in the may rotation.

    Schafer needs the money urgently to pay Anita for feminist protection?

    The underlying message on this and PS+ over the past 2 years is that Doublefine and adventure games aren’t worth buying.

    Lol It seems PS+ gamers aren’t the only ones getting shit games. Misery loves company.

    Wow that’s an impressive drop in quality, throwing in a mister shitface game really sets the tone.

    what I dislike about all this: gold/plus thing is that, if you ever stop paying the damn thing, all that “free” games you had, goes away…..

    A tower defense game (admittedly, a good one), a game tainted by the stink of Tim Schafer (eww), a driving game I had to uninstall after about 10 minutes because of the obnoxious cinematic thing it does, and Peggle (not Peggle Nights or Peggle 2, just the 9 year old original).

    These are… interesting choices.

    Only the Xbox One and PS plus games do. The 360 ones you keep permanently

    Defense grid. lol

    Remember 3 years ago when this was the first game for games with gold, and everyone was mad

    For the love of God, Microsoft, just give me R-Type Dimensions! I want it, but don’t want to spend $15 on it!
