The problem with it is that the free games they have are usually shitty, and you have to check it regularly to see if the free stuff is anything you care about.

I don't think you can keep your free games. It won't let me use mine. They are on the hard drive but it won't let me start them.

No. Any free games gotten during your Plus subscription become inaccessible once your subscription expires. Occasionally, the demo portion of a game will still be usable (I could still play one level of single player Bomberman after my Plus expired), but the full game won't be usable anymore.

Also, now that you have a PS3 you should *definitely* get Journey. Just throwing that out there.

I have that on my SS wishlist so I'm going to wait until after Christmas to purchase it myself, just in case. I have definite plans on getting it though. I don't remember if it was you or Square that gushed on and on about it but I have been wanting to play it since then. Or was it Flower? I don't remember. Anyway. Yes! That will definitely be in my collection some time soon.

Journey is a game that has no dialogue, and yet it evoked one of the strongest emotional responses in me from any videogame. The best part is that it only takes about 2-3 hours from start to finish, so I actually had time to play it to completion. They have it on a disc now, together with Flow and Flower, so you may as well get that.

Yeah, I just checked. That compilation is what I have in my wishlist. For once, I just want to play a game where I'm not having to shoot everyone in the face or race to an objective as quickly as possible. Although I certainly enjoy those games too.

Both Flower and Journey are in my top 10 for this generation. Journey made me openly weep, which was super awkward when my room mate walked in.

You know, I never did get all the glyphs (or whatever) that give you the white cloth robe. I should go back and play that again. I'd probably end up getting sucked into the journey (har har) and forget that I really came for the glyphs.

I did. Self-refilling scarf is nice. :)

I've played it a few times, and every time I forget I'm trying to get all the glyphs and just get whisked away. Unbelievable gaming experience.

My only complaint is that I wish it was in 3d.
