For December 2019, just in time for the holidays, we are getting Titanfall 2 and Monster Energy Supercross!
Titanfall 2 on October 28, 2016 (my sister’s birthday). Ben of Platinum Chasers fame said in the below video that its inclusion makes sense as their latest game, Star Wars Jedi : Fallen Order, just came out. I am not that familiar with Titanfall 2, as I just learned that Apex Legends takes place within the Titanfall universe.
Monster Energy Supercross is a BMX game that I bet Walker Dennis and I will enjoy playing together. The third game in the series is set to come out sometime next year.
. . .
Titanfall 2’s Standard Edition is $19.99 (and will most likely be the version we get). It gets as low as $5.99.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame Standard Edition is $39.99 (and will most likely be the version we get). It gets as low as $11.99.
So at their highest value, $60, and at their lowest value, $18. Which is not horrible nor the worst for the subscription, as long as I have been tracking
. . .
Both games have a slew of side content!
This game has three pages of content!
There is a free SHAREfactory theme that I have just downloaded.
There is an Ultimate Edition for $30.

There is a Colony Reborn Bundle for $25.
A Monarch’s Reign Bundle for $25.
A Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 Ultimate Bundle for $60.
A Elite Weapon Warpaint Bundle that has no price.
An Operation Endeavor Warpaint Bundle for $20.
An Angel City’s Most Wanted Bundle for $25.
There is a Deluxe Edition Content for $10.
A Jump Start Pack for $7.
Typing all of that, the Ultimate Edition cannot include all of the art items, right? It does not but it comes with 500 tokens to unlock more items that it does not come with but it does come with a slew of items.
I might as well type all that it includes to save you, dear reader, an additional click :
Base game, Deluxe Edition content (Scorch & Ion Prime Titans, Decluxe Edition Warpaint for 6 Titans, Deluxe Edition Camo for all Titans, Pilots & Weapons, Deluxe Edition Nose Arts for 6 Titans, Deluxe Edition Callsign), Jump Start content (All Titans unlocked, all Pilot tacticals unlocked, 500 tokens to unlock loadouts, cosmetics and gear, 10 2x XP tokens), and the Underground R-201 Carbine Warpaint.
Which I am sure all of this makes sense once we start playing the game.
Monster Energy Supercross
Has a Monster Energy Cup $6
A Special Edition for $50
A Season Pass for $15
Credits Multiplier $5
Blue fire Custom Rider Pack $1
Yellowfire Custom Rider Pack $1
Additional Icons $1
Redfire Custom Rider Pack $1
Theme Liveries $4
So I am not sure if it is worth spending two dollars more for the Add-Ons that total $13, just to save a few clicks as we still have to click download for the individual DLCs.
Anyone else want to spell “Energy” as “Engery” which, of course, is not right, but I seem to keep wanting to spell it that way.

December is an awkward month for PS+ Subscription. Sony will never agree (nor the publishers most likely) to release a super popular game this month as that would cut into sales of physical gifts for the holidays. On the other hand, for those buying a new PS4, and getting a free trial of either 14 days of three months, one would think they would want to show off the PS+ Subscription Service to show how great it can be, instead of having the person look into the previous year’s offerings to see the value. That may be what the games in March are traditionally popular games to get people to resubscribe after their initial three months are up.
I say all of this as my favorite subbreddits are not too pleased with the offerings. Titanfall 2 has been steeply discounted over the years and Supercross seems like free advertisement.
That’s right, I have added PS4Deals to my subscriptions as it was the only way to find out what free themes were being offered and various other deals.
. . .
Here are my usual peeps on their thoughts :
Elle of PlayStation Access :
Adam of PlayStation Grenade :
Ben of Platinum Chasers :
Thanks to Ben for explaining all of the Death Stranding Supercross jokes / comments I was reading on the above subreddit threads as I could not imagine how Monster Energy drinks could make it into Death Stranding but they are definitely there!
. . .
Here are the trophy guides from PlayStation Trophies :
Seems like I should not have to work too hard to get at least my first trophies in these games.
. . .
In Mad Max, I have finally taken out all of the Top Dogs and I am slowly working on building all of the Archangels and completing Death Races. The Maximum Air trophy keeps eluding me, which is starting to really irritate me.
. . .
I did put a pin in that game as Elle mentioned Path of Exile in this video :
Which she had me at “free game.” After attempting Nioh, I really like the idea of playing a character with dual swords so hopefully my Duelist gets those soon.
The game can be pretty intense with the communities that have been created surrounding the game. Forbes has a pretty detailed three part introduction to the game :
So interesting how Forbes has a dedicated video game writer team.
I just started my game last night so I am pretty much just walking around the opening shore line and have visited the first town and then my first waypoint, then I had to turn off the game.
My plans are to turn him into a Slayer.
It is a lot of information to take in and the menu is very busy but I am committed to playing until I complete Act 1 of 10, and then I am probably going to put it away until I am reminded of it again.
. . .
Then I will probably jump back into Mad Max, try to get all of those Death Races completed, I know I am not getting the Platinum in this game as already two races are beyond me to earn the Legendary speed so I am only committed to finishing these races.
I can see me attempting Titanfall 2’s campaign, that I hear is excellent. Everyone states the multiplayer trophies are super easy, two of them are just doing things and one of them is winning the match so hopefully my team can carry me through. Supercross, I will have to read the trophy guide and play the game but I might do it like I did Horizon Chase Turbo and commit to tracks or cups, or however they break up the races.
. . .
Looking at the list of games, some of them really stand out as being pretty good :
For Honor (February 2019)
What Remains of Edith Finch (May 2019)
Sonic Mania (June 2019)
Sniper Elite 4 (August 2019)
Batman : Arkham Knight (September 2019)
The Last of Us Remastered (October 2019)
I really should make a bigger point of playing HItman : First Season and Detroit : Become Human.
So those would be my Top Six Free Games of 2019! I enjoyed playing the other ones but those stood out to me. So I would say six stellar games that I really took too (well, Sonic Mania might be the sixth game on that list), for $40, is not a bad bundle.
. . .
Have a Happy and Super Safe Thanksgiving Day, Ya’ll! Enjoy those Black Friday deals as well! Make Good Decisions!
