With Cado exploring the Colorado wilderness, everyone else gathers around to hear stories of Patrick...stalking his neighborhood for a chance to look into other people's garages? Huh. Elsewhere, we discuss Stray breaking its containment field and being discovered by a huge audience that's going to think all video games are about cats, Ren channels Danielle Riendeau and digs into the latest Into the Breach update, and Rob is, somehow, talking about the Civil War again.
As enticing as Stray looks and how much people seem to enjoy it my brain has become broken by Gamepass and I can’t justify dropping $30 when realistically the game does eventually come to Xbox and Switch in a year. Makes me wonder if this is how I’m going to feel about all games over $20 that are of the high end “B” tier of games going forward.
Ironically, Stray is the game making me tempted to get on Sony’s Gamepass equivalent. So even that game has a subscription option. Which hey, if that’s what middle budget games need to do these days to survive, it’s not the worst thing.
I don’t think Stray is, by itself, worth the price increase for Sony’s nonsense (they teched so hard around how much they still want you to pay $70 for God of War) but if you decide to upgrade your PSPlus subscription, it is worth grabbing Stray.
It should be easy enough to finish within the trial, yeah. The game is about 5ish hours long. I agree that PlayStations shop has always been really weird. I mean it wasn’t until fairly recently that you could purchase a game that you had gotten for free on PS+, so if your subscription lapsed, you were SOL
I put in a 3 stage filter and dedicated faucet. I put it wherever the hose and sprayer was and upgraded my main faucet to one with the built in hose you can pull and spray down dishes. It was pretty life changing, it’s obviously Luke warm but I fill the ice trays with the filtered water and viola.
I ended up doing this. I was going to buy the game but saw it would cost basically the same to upgrade my subscription to Premium for the rest of the year, and then I looked through the list of games and realized that for whatever reason I find this list quite a bit more compelling than Game Pass’s at the moment. Especially the classic streaming options. Been wanting to replay Ico for a while.
Ico is incredible, very excited to hear your thoughts returning to it! I’m also looking over the library and seeing quite a bit that I would play. Think I’m gonna do the middle tier, as the perks for premium are a little wanting for me. Here’s hoping they at some point allow for PS3 owners to access the premium library directly rather than through the cloud, in which case the upgrade becomes a no brainer for me.
Also, Xbox just announced their Games with Gold for next month and it’s headlining with another cat game, Calico:
Man I love this petty console war bullshit. Phil Spencer out here fighting fire with fire.
