    I bought the PS3 PS2 version ages ago in a R* sale for the price of a cheap pint. Never played it, really need to get around to it.
    Yeah, that's the one I got. (Well, the PS2 PS4 version, I'm guessing it's the same). Definitely give it a go - one of the few games I've lived enough to finish ah twice.

    Bully is an amazing game, my favourite from Rockstar and one of my all time favourites. I got the digital version for PS4 a while ago from the Canadian PS store which is the third time I've bought this! The first time for PS2 when it launched, then the Scholarship Edition for 360.

    It's just a shame Playstation never got the Scholarship Edition as it has some brilliant new missions, especially around Christmas time involving a homeless Santa. Plus of course it had a shiny HD visual overhaul.

    Speaking of PS2 games, I purchased the enhanced version (trophy support, etc) of Red Faction for 2.49 during the PS store Easter sale, which was another favourite of mine from the PS2 era.
    I got Red Faction on that Humble sale for one buck. It's the USA version, so at least I'll avoid any bad surprises (Sony still hasn't patched 60hz into Twisted Metal Black, and at this point, I doubt they ever will...)

    I also got Primal, which is pretty okay aside from the crap combat. Considering that it was clearly trying to take cues from Soul Reaver 1/2, it's surprising just how inferior the combat, camera and overall controls are. Still playable enough, though.

    Please forgive what I know to be a noob question, especially since I know I've asked before but for the life of me can't remember which thread so can't find the answer, but when do new PS Plus games go live? Is it the first Tuesday of the month, so tomorrow the 2nd of May?

    Yeah, I didn't even realize it was a thing until I started getting mysterious "cannot take a screenshot now" messages in Persona 5 for no apparent reason (I'd already disabled trophy notifications).

    Twisted Metal Black EU version is missing all the cutscenes too as they were dropped after 9/11 (one scene had a crashing plane I think) and never put back in later iterations. So the NA version is always the way to go with that one.

    As for Red Faction, it's the version released by Nordic Games (now called thq Nordic I think) after they bought up the library of games from the bankrupt thq. It's got full trophy support and has been up-rendered to 1080p, so looks a lot cleaner etc. though there's no changes to things like textures.

    Twisted Metal Black is a shockingly poor game, mind.

    It inverts your steering when reversing FFS!

    @FuzzyDucky the controls are terrible indeed. While proper 60hz would be good to have, I doubt it would be enough to make me play again.

    I've hated all the Playstation controllers, but I love the PS4 version. Think its probably second best I've ever had after the 360.

    @Malek86 Yeah it boggles the mind how anyone on the dev team played it and said "yep, this is how we want our game to control".

    One of most counter-intuative games I've ever played.

    So it looks like mt PS4 has bitten the dust. During Netflix last night it just stopped, and now it will only turn on for half a second before the blue light disappears and it is non-responsive until you un- and re-plug it.

    I'm unimpressed by the 125 charge for a repair or replacement as it only has a 3 month warranty, so I'm tempted by just replacing it for an extra hundred or so as I need to finish Last Guardian and get started on Persona and VR Dirt Rally. Which then makes me think is it worth spending another hundred or so for a Pro?

    Edit: I don't really care about graphics that much, and I don't have a 4k tv, so the internet tells me that it's probably best to go for a Slim.

    From what I've seen, Dirt Rally VR is nicer on Pro, though not in an essential way. It's mostly in the weather effects. It's noticeable but you can easily do without.

    I watched a lot of stuff on YouTube when I was considering whether to go PS4 or Pro and this video was one of the ones that nudged me towards Pro: Dirt Rally VR Comparison. Not sure the slightly nicer effects are 100 worth though, but as I had the money at the time I'm happy I went for it. Whether that weather is worth it is up to you :)

    @DFawkes Hmm. And Simply has Pros for 319, so it's actually only 60 more. Seems a bit silly not to do that, I suppose. And it softens the blow of having to buy the same console again.

    Edit: and I bought a Pro. I guess this is all in the wrong thread now.

    Worth having a Pro if you have PSVR imo.

    Hello you lovely people. A question: if I let my Plus run out, will my cloud saves still be there when I re-sub? Or will they dissipate in the clear sky? Or something.

    Ta.

    I ended up subbing again for another year. I wanted to buy just 3 months, but in the end, there wasn't that much of a price difference.

    Damn you, Bungie. Do you see what you made me do? Do you see?

    Last I heard, they can delete your saves after 6 months. That was a couple years ago though, not sure if that's still the case today.

    Thanks Malek. I'll have a look around and see if that's changed. I might just look through my saves first and see if I'd actually care if they were lost, and then just cancel my sub - I don't play online on PS4 very often at all, and I almost never touch the Plus games, so it's a bit of a waste of money, really.

    The event calendar is such a joke. Everytime it pops up. Guess what? It's a GTA Online event.

    Why the fuck is that thing not better about telling me everything going on? Titanfall 2 double XP? Battlefield 1 Battlefest? Free trial weekend for some games? Open betas? Ecetra. I want the event calendar to tell me about everything, in every game - especially those I own.

    As is, it tells me about GTA Online and Overwatch, and that's it. A piss poor guide to the world of gaming on Playstation. I don't know who's fault that is? Sony not designing it in a way to accommodate more games? Publishers not caring enough to use the feature?

    I hate wasted potential. The event calendar has tremendous potential. It's pretty much a waste right now.

    I know its pretty much irrelevant unless they use it for more than just Overwatch and GTA.

    Another question: where can I turn off automatic renewal for PS+? I had a look on the site yesterday and couldn't find anything, though it's entirely possible I'm a bit fick and missed it.

    Ta!

    @Ror you can't actually turn off PS+. You can only turn off automatic funds withdrawal on your account, which means Sony will disable your PS+ when it runs out because you can't automatically pay to renew it.

    Kinda sucks for those who want that option enabled to pay for preordered games.

    @Malek86 Thanks Malek. I did actually find a way to turn off automatic renewal, though having seen your post I wonder if I just turned off automatic wallet funding. I'm *sure* it said auto renewal though.

    Either way, it doesn't matter. I can't imagine ever pre-ordering a digital game on PS4.

    @Nades Yeah, mine's been doing that.

    I think it's because it's a piece of shit I'm just annoyed because I lost progress on NieR when the console decided to spit out the disc.
