Thanks to redditor neocarleen for posting the titles with their very handy PS Store links!
This is a sale that favors indie developers and there are plenty of games for under three dollars.
I bought Real Farm and REUS as they were only 74 cents each, with a PS+ subscription.
I also bought Octodad : Dadliest Catch as it was $3.74, and I am just going to buy games on my wishlist if it is under four dollars. I had a policy of any games under five dollars but that threshold was being met to often.
Elle and Rosie looked like they had a fantastic time playing the game!
Looking into it, the game does have two player couch co-op where up to four players can play as each limb, so Walker Dennis and I may try this together, just without the giant overcoat.
. . .
11-11 Memories Retold is $7.49, which I have been interested in since reading an article about the game in GameInformer.
Dear Esther : Landmark edition is $4, and I think you would get that much out of the game. I started the Commentary Track playthrough and the first several audio files were interesting but I was pretty done with the game by that point. A great looking walking simulator.
Alphabetically, Deployment is the first under two dollar game.
Drowning is a relatively quick platinum, and probably worth the $1.49. I liked it, I wished it had an additional chapter as it was getting very interesting.
Flower is a nice enough game but $5.24 is probably too much, and I would recommend waiting until the Journey Special Edition is on sale again and get Flower and flOw that way, and it would most likely be only a dollar more.
Fractured Minds is worth the dollar, as it has a great story behind the game and a percentage of sales goes to a great cause. I wrote about it before :
I would never buy a modern day Leisure Suit Larry game, unless it got amazing reviews, but $26 seems way too much!
Life is Strange and Life is Strange : Before the Storm Complete Seasons four $4 is a great price, that is like buying four episodes and getting the fifth for free, dollar wise. I only completed the first episode of the original Life is Strange, and I really should head back in one of these days to finish it.
The LIMBO and INSIDE Bundle is $9, which might be a tad high, it all depends on if you want to view getting LIMBO for free and I am not sure if INSIDE is a nine dollar game. I enjoyed INSIDE much more than LIMBO, and INSIDE is nearly a two hour game, and such an interesting adventure, but nine dollars? That part I am not sure about.
Mafia III Season Pass is $15, adding three additional chapters to the game. If I took to Mafia III, I might consider it worth it, but I did not get that far into it before getting distracted by other games. I should try to get back into it.
Ninjin : Clash of Carrots is $4, and I definitely bought it for under two before, so you should probably wait for that price to come down again.
Oustlast 2, I got as a PS+ game in November 2019. I did not take to it, but I know people love the franchise so $8 for a horror game people like, might be up your alley.
Overcooked was a PS+ game in May 2019. It was fun, but I am not sure if it was $6.79 worth of fun. Maybe if you had a friend to play with, it is probably a lot more enjoyable.
If the Oxenfree Bundle : Game + Dynamic Theme + Avatars was under $5.59, I would jump at the chance, as the game looks super interesting. I am just buying way too many games, but I also love a deal.
Everything I see anything regarding Persona 5, I feel like people should know that Personal 5 R is coming out and they should wait for that.
Elle of PlayStation Access fame is a huge fan of Return of the Obra Dinn, and that game is $15, which is a tad steep for me.
Rogue Aces was a PS+ game in February 2019. I also did not take to this game, so $5.84 seems high to me.
Slender : The Arrival was used during PlayStation Access’s Christmas Maze, and it looked interesting and $5 is probably the perfect price, and that is at 50% off.
Now that I know games can and will eventually drop to 75%, I am super willing to wait until that happens. Plus, I did not really get a feel for what the game was like, but it was super fun to watch!
We were given Sonic Mania as one of the PS+ June 2019 titles, and I was tempted to get the Encore DLC then, and now that it is $3, I am tempted to get it again.
I have Surgeon Simulator A&E + I Am Bread combo on my wishlist, and $7 for two games seems like a deal, but after seeing gameplay of I Am Bread, I am pretty hesitant to purchase it. It may not be my type of game.
The Bridge was a PS+ title in October 2018. I did not get that far into the puzzles, but I definitely would type that I got $2 worth out of it.
Nathan of PlayStation Access said The Swapper was a good game, so I added it to my wishlist, and $4.49 sounds good, and that is at 70% off. I am willing to wait for a bit to see if it comes down anymore.
Rob of PlayStation Access talked so highly of Thomas Was Alone, that I added that game to my wishlist as well. $4.99 is a good price, and that is at 50%, so I wonder if it will ever drop to 70%?
I clearly adore the PlayStation Access team. I could not work in a game that Dave recommended.
Uncanny Valley is a very interesting game that we got back in January 2018 as a PS+ title. It requires multiple playthroughs to 100% the game, so I bet I got $5.19 out of it.
People absolutely rave about Undertale, and $12.74 is probably reasonably priced, but that is also at 15%. It will eventually get to 50%. I can be a very patient gamer.
If I were to ever buy Unravel, it would be as the combo bundle.
We also were given What Remains of Edith Finch as a PS+, way back in May 2019, and I definitely got $8 worth of entertainment out of it. Such an amazing experience!
Yooka-Laylee gets a lot of love too, and that game is $10 at 75%.
. . .
I should state that next week, we find out what the February 2020 PS+ games are, so you may want to hold off on any purchases from this deal and the Games Under $20 deal, though one would imagine none of the games on either list would be named as one of the titles, but that is also why I do not buy more than five dollar games towards the end of the month.
. . .
I did not take to Defunct, so I would save your 23 cents for that game. I read it was like playing a Sonic game, but I did not get vibe from it. Well, besides that the main character rolls around, but I did not take to the game mechanics. If the game was all downhill, that may be fun and then it added anti-gravity to the game and after earning a few trophies, I felt like I had played enough.
. . .
Shiny – A Robotic Adventure I would highly recommend, and especially at 23 cents! It is a platform game, and besides Level 12, I enjoyed it a bunch. I stayed up way too late one night and just knocked out all 21 levels, which was highly irresponsible as I was the worst the next day.
I was told on reddit that some of the trophies have glitches and I can confirm that. I collected everything in Level 3, and did not die once, and I did not earn the trophy for Not Dying in a Level. So that was disappointing. Another gripe I have about the game, was once you replay a level, all of the collectibles come back. I was really hoping only the collectibles I had not collected would be present, which is probably a bit much to ask for.
. . .
Walker Dennis keeps just getting better at Spider-Man PS4. He just completed Act 2 and I am highly impressed with how much he is able to accomplish on his own.
I am currently stuck on the Kingpin fight of Amazing Spider-Man 2, and regretting playing on Super Hard mode. I have seen videos where I am supposed to take out the goons prior to taking on the Kingpin, I just have to commit to doing it. I already know that the upcoming Electro and Green Goblin fights were nearly impossible on Easy, so I am dreading playing those as well on Super Hard. I am definitely never attempting anything beyond Normal as my first playthrough. And now, I am sort of in a position of not wanting to replay hours of the game on Normal and having to recollect those comic books again. Especially the flying ones. So I am mostly disappointed in myself.
I have been making a point of playing a level of Lego Batman 3 first, collecting the red brick and the character token for Bat-Mite in each level. I believe I am currently on level seven? That sounds about right. I love how fast the levels are and how they made it so you could skip segments if you have a character like Man of Steel Superman who can fly ahead and do whatever it requires for that section to be completed. I also miss how the Lego games used to let you pick a subsection of the level to play, and to tell you where the collectibles were in each mission. Lego Dimensions must have been the transition game that handed off different mechanics to the next generation of games.
. . .
I have also become super obsessed with Nolan North’s Definitely Playthrough of Uncharted and I am currently watching his playthrough of Uncharted 2. Troy Baker. I absolutely love the theme song for the show, done by Droid Bishop. I started Uncharted 1 and I got to Chapter 3.
. . .
My wife and I also played one game of Wheel of Fortune. I really wish Pat and Vanna were paid for their likenesses in the game, as the stand-ins make the game feel very cheap, and the game costs a decent amount of change. The game itself is pretty good, as is the presentation, but it is a real shame the game was not properly licensed. We have yet to try Jeopardy.
. . .
Rayman Legends is on the Games Under $20 sale and I finally gave it a try. Such a fun platformer! Playing this and Shiny brought back so many great memories of how much I enjoy playing a good platformer. Rayman Legends just looks great too, it has this really great classic feel to it and the levels are not unforgiving nor all that long. I was playing a level of Lego Batman 3, followed by Rayman Legends, then whatever the main game of the night was going to be.
Then, of course, I bought all of these games, and then I have been too tired to stay up and have not played any of them.
