Hollow Knight and Bugsnax?
AWESOME!!
I was curious about Bugsnax, if I don't have to pay for it (more than the ps+ that I already have paid for), even better.

Eventually they do drop the "old" consoles from their lineups of "free"(they're actually rentals) games.
Oh for sure, I just wonder if they are going to push down to one ps5 game. I can't remember how the PS4 launch was.

Was it only resogun?

PS Plus PS4 owners are getting the major shaft here, no PLUS Library(or whatever they're calling it) and no shitty Bugsnax game despite the fact that it's available on both consoles. Sony's shitiness is starting up again.

If you haven't played Shadow of War, do so, fun game! Hollow Knight is really good as well.

Bugsnax.... Sure? Why not?

Ive been trying to get back into Shadow of War on Xbox lately... a shame they bloated the game with so much crap. I really hate how it’s like impossible to do any mission against an enemy captain now without having like three other guys show up to fight and I have no idea who the fuck they are. So every mission just turns into this long battle of attrition where you have to grind down tons of enemies and three or four bosses.

Then there’s the whole siege stuff.

If you have kids, then Bugsnax is nice. Not sure I want to play though, but I will keep an open mind.

Personally I think it's a bit silly to hate on a kids game. It's an important demographic for Playstation.

Are people really excited about Bugsnax for the memes, because they are PS diehards, or for the game itself? I suspect it is the first two...

Regardless, between Bugsnax and Destruction All Stars both moving to launch on PS+ it is a great way to get people interested in games that I don't think would have sold as well otherwise-especially given all of the other titles launching at the same time.

Hollow Knight and Shadow of War are nice as well. PS+ has consistently delivered great free titles, especially over the past 2+ years. On the other side of the fence Microsoft has done a fantastic job with the Game Pass line up but it seems like Games with Gold is an afterthought now.

Imagine buying a Ps5, putting PS+ and have 23 (20 Collection + 3 Nov line up) amazing games ready to go.

Not even counting the launch line up on it´s own (Demon Souls, Miles Morales, SackBoy etc.).

Ps5 is absolute BONKERS, Sony absolute mad lad what in the actual fuck this shit is just insanity.

Not every game needs to be in a photorealistic violent setting.
Some people like cartoony games, some have kids and there are so few games for kids on consoles (non Nintendo consoles).
I want it just to play around a foolish game in between Demon's Souls sessions.

I agree. I'm not suggesting that it isn't a good game. Rather the hype for the title seemed disproportional to what the game had to offer. I suspect that was due to memes and PS fanboy hype. Was wondering what the perception was on the game that aside-looks ok, not something I would buy but will certainly try on PS+.

Kind of like how Xbox fans made Grounded/The Medium out to be bigger titles than they actually are.
