The November 2019 Free PS Plus Games are : Nioh and Outlast 2!
Nioh 2 is coming out sometime next year so it makes sense to put the first game out for free to build interest.
Outlast 3 has been confirmed. This probably makes sense coming out of Halloween and is more of a horror game than The Last of Us.
I have not heard much about Nioh besides it being an amazing game in the same genre as the Soulbourne games. Outlast is a very scary game series. I like how Outlast 2 takes place in Arizona, I wonder if it is a fake Arizona town. I will find out on November 5th. I might start with Outlast 2 over Nioh but I am not sure how far I will get in either game.

Reddit seems pretty happy with the selections :
. . .
Nioh is a $20 game now that it is part of the PlayStation Hits line.
Nioh 2 is going to be $60 and can be preordered now through the PlayStation Store. The game will come out in 132 days. There is also a DIgital Deluxe Edition for $80.
There are three avatars, each for 49 cents. Okatsu, William (the main character), and Hanzo.
There is a static theme for three dollars.
A Season Pass for $25 and a Complete Edition of the game for $50.
I have the SHAREfactory theme which is free and the Yokai Static Theme that is also free that I will be using as my theme while playing the game.
There are three DLC Chapters.
Dragon of the North ($10)
Defiant Honor ($10)
Bloodshed’s End ($10)
So the Season Pass seems to be a pretty good deal at a savings of five dollars.
PSPrices states Nioh has gone as low as $15.99.
Outlast 2 is $30, and right now the PlayStation Store is offering it for $7.49, so hopefully no one buys the game at that price this week!
There is DLC for the game. PSPrices states $7.49 is the lowest it has been.
So best way, the two games are worth $50 together or at their lowest, $24.
Nioh came out on February 7, 2017 and Outlast 2 came out on April 25, 2017 – so both games came out months apart and within 2017.

PlayStationTrophies.org has excellent guides for both games :

Here are the thoughts from my usual peeps :

So I am pretty excited about these games! If I take to Outlast, I might look into getting the first game but I imagine the second one will be enough for me as it is a stand alone story.

I finally beat the first boss who is on the 10th floor of Let It Die. I ran out of my free lives and had to buy ten additional lives for only a dollar, which seemed decent enough, so I bought my first trophy but at least I am done with that game. I might come back to it one of these days and get the broken equipment trophy. If I attempt that, I will just start with the first floor and work my way up. Those dman flying drill robots really kill my buzz as they take so much of my health and I am not good with countering them. Fun game though with lots to do but I was mainly focus on getting that first boss fight under wraps.

I also gave Deus Ex Mankind Divided a proper chance. I wanted to get pass the helicopter section but I cannot figure out what am I supposed to do there. Am I supposed to take out all of the enemies and then concentrate on the helicopter? I need to look it up. I got the trophy for doing all of the tutorials (which I did not know there was a trophy for) and then got stumped by the helicopter section. But I stopped so I could jump into Let It Die as I knew that was going to be a longer commitment. Apparently there is a trophy for inputting 0451 into the very first keypad so whenever I go back to the game, I might as well start over to get that trophy as I am only like 30 minutes into the game and that will go faster now that I am more familiar with the controls. I really do like how simple the stealth takedowns are done with pressing circle and those can become death takedowns if we hold circle down. I am going to attempt a non-lethal playthrough. I do wish there was a simple punch option as I was standing in front of the helicopter with no way to attack it as I was all out of ammo with my stun gun. I had picked up other guns but I cannot figure out how to switch weapons while avoiding the enemies attacking me.

I had such big plans to end the month with Man of Medan but then I saw Rocket League was doing a Halloween event, Haunted Hallows.
Thanks to Rocket League for hosting their own video.
I have been seeing it advertised but I did not know it was a Stranger Things event. Finding the above video, I see this is an annual event.
I earned the spider crawling animation and I plan on getting the leaf exhaustion and wood tires so I have to compete in 27 matches to earn those two items and I think I should be able to do that before the end of the event.
Then I will probably put the game away until their next event, if anything catches my eye that time around. I am sure something will be worth a few games. I do like how freely they are adding out pumpkins, every match has at least ten pumpkins to go towards the prize items. I have plenty of time as the event ends on November 11.
. . .
Once Burnout Paradise Remastered goes on sale (hopefully prior to the end of November, or I will just wait to see if it becomes the free December game) for six dollars, I am still committed to buying that game.
. . .
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween! Walker Dennis is going to be Spider-Man this year!
