    I'm very excited to get some free games with Plus. I've wanted to play Don't Starve and Bioshock Infinite for a long time, but money has been very tight, partly because we've been saving for this shiny new PS4 :)

    Hey so what's the deal with the instant collection? Are they only available for that month? Can you not play them when the month ends?

  • AtomicTofuAtomicTofu She's a straight-up supervillain, yo Registered User regular
    They go away after a period of time, but if you've added them to your collection, you will be able to download and play the games as long as you have an active Plus subscription. If you drop your subscription and start it up again later, you'll still have access when you resub.

    You can play them as long as your Plus subscription is active. They're only available to purchase for that month.

    You don't even need to fully download them right away. Just add the free game to your cart, purchase it for zero dollars, start the download, cancel it, and you can pick it back up again whenever you want to play it.


    Edit: or what he said.

    Hey is anybody planning to sell/trade in their old PS3? If so, and you have any extra wireless controllers, I would very much love to buy one off of somebody. I can match price, plus shipping. I've scoured the used electronics shops around here and can't find anything that's really cheap.

    Just PM me and let me know. Please, and thank you.

    so uh

    where does one go to find these free Plus games? I got a 1-year plus sub when I got my PS4, but when I go to the Playstation Plus parts of the store the only things listed are the various duration Plus subscriptions.

    Killzone: Mercenary is a pretty solid shooter and probably the best ever to grace a handheld.

    Dragon's Crown has some pretty iffy art that upsets some people but is a fantastic game nonetheless.

    It seems to me like the art in Dragons Crown is only an issue to people who like to talk about issues.

    Yeah, I recently gave in to my curiosity and tried Dragon's Crown

    A lot of the art is pretty horrid

    But goddamn if it isn't a fun game

    Hopefully someone will make less-gross versions of that sort of game sometime soon to be enjoyed by more

  • WimbleWimble Registered User regular
    I think I would pick up Dragon's Crown even if some of the art does bother me quite a bit. It doesn't bother me in the way games such as Dead or Alive does where I want to avoid it all cost on some kind of principle, so I can deal with it considering I've heard it's a good game and seen it has super amazing art outside of that stuff

    No one's perception of women has ever been shaped or validated by the artwork in Dragons Crown unless that person was already an irredeemable troglodyte.

    The idea that games shouldn't be made targeting young males with sexuality is not soluble with reality, and the person who saw the mermaid in Dragon's Crown and decided women aren't people doesn't exist.

    Who has the need to take up arms against it other than people who are looking for a case to make?

    Who has the need to take up arms against it other than people who are looking for a case to make?

    Or

    now stay with me here

    people, specifically those who are let's say women, in general really really really really fucking hate this sort of shit because all it does is propagate terrible stereotypes and bad art in any kind of medium.

    Stop peddling the "not soluble with reality" bullshit like nothing can ever be changed because you see it as cement. Remember when slapping a lady's ass was unironically acceptable in both real life and media? Yeah people thought it completely unrealistic to get rid of that fuckery because they thought it unfathomable to halt any sort of material that appealed to young men.

    And guess what! You cannot possibly say people haven't/won't ever be shaped by bullshit art like this because you can ask a tonne of guys from previous generations, hell even my own, and when asked to think of their ideal lady they'll probably refer to some really dumb examples they've drawn from popular media. Some people think the designs of women like in Heavy Metal and christ most comic books today are completely in proportion with what women are supposed to look like, when even someone like Spider Woman is damn near completely fantastical.

    This is a really fucking lazy argument to make, because it comes from the easiest possible place to criticise without a modicum of actual thought put into it, and it stems from some pretty damning preconceived notions.

  • WaltWalt Waller Arcane Enchanted Frozen ElectrifiedRegistered User regular
    I tend to see things as people issues and not media issues. You were exposed to exactly the same set of media, and yet you don't have ridiculous standards for women's bodies.

    I don't think the Bible is bad because it propogates homophobia. I think vile, small minded people propogate homophobia and hide behind it as an excuse. I think charitable, loving people are inspired to perform amazing acts of kindness by the same book.

    In much the same way, I don't think Dragon's Crown propogates misogyny any more than it propogates saving peasants or hoarding treasure.

    And no, I don't think you will ever win at making people not make art featuring huge boobs any more than you will ever stop them from making art with huge dicks or severed heads.

    The impasse is that I don't think media actually affects the minds of people as much as we want to believe it does, because I think saying you were influenced to do something does not absolve you of any personal responsibility or dilute your innate ability to choose. Simply taking away comic book sexuality or women in refrigerators will not help the perception of women in the world; having meaningful conversations about them with people absolutely will. Why invest energy in the former?

    I had a friend in high school that found anime girls so attractive he honestly felt no real life women could even come close. He even mentioned that on his very first(and as far as I know, only) date. That said, I think that's an extreme case and well outside of the norm. But it does happen.
