"Yes MotorStorm RC is Crossbuy, not the complete edition though, we may be able to arrange a discount on the DLC though, watch this space!"

Happy to see both Remember Me and Vita Strangers Wrath up on PS+ next month. I was close to getting both but passed on them several times, I'm kinda glad I did now.

Remember Me was one of those games I was interested in, but not ultimately enough to pay £40 for - so great to get a go on it via PSN. This really is great way to get access to games

You must have only joined PSN plus, as Strangers Wrath (ps3 version) was released free a couple months ago on psn plus.

Yes. It was good, though it was quite hard in places. I managed to get right to the last battle in the game and couldn't get past it. It took an hour to get to the end, then I spent two hours re-trying the same fight. In the end I gave up. It doesn't save levels, so I'd have to do the whole level again to ever try it again, which I'll never do.

Apart from the end, I liked it. And it was free, so even better.

Been playing it recently, parts of it are more Sonic than Mario strangely.
Revengeance and a remember me are two titles I don't own so again it will be a good month!

It's that time of the month. :P

In summary:

Leaving PS Plus:
27th November: Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
27th November: Jak and Daxter Trilogy
27th November: MotorStorm RC
27th November: Oddworld Strangers Wrath

Entering PS Plus:
29th November: RESOGUN
29th November: Contrast
27th November: Grid 2
27th November: Guacamelee! (Cross Buy)
27th November: Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed
27th November: Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories

Had been planning on buying Grid 2, so that's not bad. And I guess we all go for the PS4 games even if we're not getting one anytime soon.

Remember Me is my favourite game of the year (apart from maybe GTA 5). So yeah, get onto that before it goes.

Sonic Transformed is good fun - especially if you have kids - (recommended also for Sega fanboys like me)

I wouldn't quite go with favourite myself but it's got some nice ideas and is definitely worth a play. Looking forward to Guacamelee, Metroid meets 2D Brawler from what I've read :)

I wish they'd put the format in those lists. Grid 2 and Guacamelee! are PS3.

I only just finished Dragon's Dogma last night (189 hours!), then had a quick go on Remember Me. I still have Metal Gear to play. I'm glad we only get two games for the PS3 these days, as it was too much getting three. I seem to spend every waking minute playing the PS+ games. I might catch up now and be able to have a break once in a while, or actually buy a game.
