PS+ Subscribers received Sims 4 and the Bioshock Collection of games for February. Plus Firewall Zero Hour for the VR.
After thinking I would not invest too much time into Sims 4, I invested a crazy amount of time! I made myself maxed out on playing video games, writing, playing both the violin and the guitar. I am currently working on my piano skills. During my writing days, I was earning royalties for all of the books I was writing but I suspect those may be drying up lately. I made my wife who goes out and works all day so I can stay home and work on my skills, and I used the game’s genetics option to make Walker Dennis, who came out pretty well. Pretty much my face but with my wife’s proper proportions, so we are all pretty happy. I really need to move us into a larger house as the piano is out in the yard and that cannot be good for it.
I plan on trying to stick it out and keep the game into the rotation. It really is a lot of fun. Repetitive but fun. I was getting annoyed as I was trying to write songs and it takes forever to write a song, to the point, where I have not written any songs.
. . .
Bioshock, and I am definitely not the first one to write this, is such a fun and interesting game! I pretty much played it over the course of two nights and I defeated Dr. Steinman, and that felt like a good stopping place for the moment. I am not usually into first person shooters but this game just feels so good to play and explore Rapture.
. . .
There is an amazing Remasters and Retro sale going on right now! I bought the Batman : Return to Arkham set for five dollars as quickly as I could! I also scooped up Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as Walker Dennis really wanted to play a Spider-Man fighting game after he saw me playing Injustice 2. UMvC3 is nine dollars and felt like a pretty good price. Infinite is way too much for this me, if I was more into fighting games, I would jump at all of the content for $24 but I can easily wait. Especially as I feel like I am already done with the game. I would be jumping right into Arkham Asylum but then . . .
. . .
The Division 2 was set to three dollars and I had to buy it! I knew next to nothing about it, except that it usually still goes for $60 and on sale, it still like $20, so three dollars was pretty worth it. I definitely got my three dollars worth out of NBA 2k19.
The one draw back is that the Division 2 is such a huge game so now I feel like I have to mainline it for a while to justify the space it takes up.
Here is Dave from PlayStation Access playing the game :
I watched a few minutes of the video and figured, “What the heck?” and bought the game.
I got to level 6 and completed the third main story mission. So I was able to unlock squads and definitely got my three dollars worth. The game is much better when you get matched with others, heck, even just having a partner made the game more enjoyable.
. . .
Thanks to my 26th Platinum, Life is Strange, I finally got to level 18!
Such an interesting game. I still plan on making Life is Strange : Before the Storm, my March Platinum.
. . .
Here is also a deal that Adam’s Venture Origins is only 19 cents.
That is a deal I could not pass up!
Here is PlaystationTrophies.org’s trophy guide :
. . .
The latest big deal is the Essentials Pick sale :
I quickly picked up Erica for $5 and Monopoly Family Fun Pack for $6.
I was making such good progress on Lego Batman 3 again but that is okay, it will be there when I get back.
A lot of excellent games are on sale right now. I was surprised with how many games I already owned!
Batman : Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Grand Theft Auto V, Lego Marvel Collection, Mafia III, Ratchet & Clank, Man of Medan, The Last of Us Remastered, Lego Movie 2, The Witness, Uncharted 4, Until Dawn, and Until Dawn : Blood Rush,
Here are the two guides for Erica. One is for overall game :
The other is a text guide, which is what I really need.
My plan is to play it like Late Shift, with one playthrough, and then play another game or two and come back to Erica.

For my birthday, Walker Dennis got me Lego Incredibles and we burned through the story mode and now just enjoying the open world.
We unlocked Splashdown, and Walker Dennis really wanted to use his mask for his Spider-Man creation, but it was not in the creation options. So that is unfortunate and disappointing. It would have been amazing!
. . .
When I bought Injustice 2, it did not take long for Walker D to want to fight Batman and the Ninja Turtles. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 went on sale for only ten dollars so I bought it. I forgot the Capcom games did that team-up thing so it isn’t just one character versus another, but three on three.
Turns out, one of Spider-Man’s alternate suits is the Scarlet Spider, so I am super happy about that, but one of the other ones is the black costume, so Walker D likes that. Though he has been playing as the traditional red and blue suit, which is fine.
. . .
I treated Walker Dennis and myself to Lego DC Supervillains Deluxe Edition, so expect some updates about that game!
