    I assume you're saying that those titles are excellent, because they are.

    I really liked Titan Attacks, too

    I think it's some German law which prevents titles like this being given away. It's the same thing which prevents some games being given away as competition prizes. SCEE would only exclude Duke Nukem from Germany if they had to.

    That damn "all but" construction, I still have to understand that apparently it doesn't work as it does in my language lol

    Yeah, those games are wonderful!

    I think the closest we would use in English would be 'anything but' :)

    I enjoyed only one of them - Steamworld Dig. I cant even imagine why did they put Pix The Cat, TxK ald Luftrausers when they feel like typical web browser games. Velocity was "meh" for me.

    Dont get me wrong. I like indie games, but not all of them. Most of the indies that are put in the PS Plus are the one I hate. Why dont they put for example Rogue Legacy or Retrocity Rampage?

    I don't get what this sentence means... do you mean that those games aren't polished? Or that the concept/realization is shallow? Because I found Pix The Cat to be incredibly polished and with ton of fun content among the multiple modes, while TxK is the perfect nextgen reintepretation of an old classic (Tempest). Luftrausers is visually pretty barebones but its gameplay is very finely tweaked.

    It isn't given away, I have to pay for the PS+ subscription. A PS+ subscription can only be legally bought at 18 in Germany. Same goes for anything in the PSN store (credit cards and PSN top up cards are both only available for adults).

    Actually, Sony uses PS+ as an age gate for free 18+ demos in Germany from time to time. I wouldn't even complain that much about the game not being "free" on PS+. It is just that the game won't be released at all in Germany and I waited for months to play it on Vita. I want a new shooter on my Vita and the multiplayer sounds great.

    The original game is still indexed in Germany, which is quite a joke because the content was considered offensive decades ago, which was already a joke back then. Today's content is much worse.
    Several other older games got taken down from the index but not the original Duke Nukem 3D.

    So considering that, I would still understand why they can't offer it in Germany. The kicker is, the Megaton Edition is available on the German Steam for purchase. I already own it there and can easily buy more copies of it.
    So why is Steam different from the PSN? Typing of the Dead, which is also indexed in Germany, is not available on the German Steam so Steam has not some wildcard.

    I played every of them. I dont mean they are not polished. I meant that gameplay is rather boring. Those 3 games are typical web browser games where you have to get as high score as possible. While I still can justify those games on smartphones, I cant stand them on PSV. When I bought PSV, PS Plus had greater games to offer. Now PS Plus feels like
    unfulfilled promise.

    They're score-attack games. This does not relate at all with the platform(and even if it would, it would be the arcade), it's just a genre you don't like.
    By the way, Pix The Cat has two puzzle modes(Laboratory and Nostalgia) that aren't about score-attacking. Arcade mode is definitely the mode I've played the least; TxK isn't just about getting an highscore either.

    Oh it seems that you don't like games that do not have some sort of progression/storyline right? I always have games like Luftrausers, Lumines in the Vita for a quick play sometimes. Because they are so easy to pick up and enormously fun, I always forget to play other games. And please don't say web browser games lol, that can really create such a silly impression of those games.

    Titles are up for EU - except Infamous FL, which seems to have disappeared entirely!

    Downloading the Duke right now with bated breath -- sank so much time into the original when it first came out back in 90-whatever. Came so close to hitting insta-buy when it accidentally dropped a few weeks back, in the window before it got pulled again. Glad I didn't now. :D

    When I first heard of PS Plus (i.e. before I had a Vita), I hated the idea of paying a regular fee in order to retain access to games. Now I can't live without it.

    That's how I was with it too. I got used to paying the fee and just grew up with it. :p

    Anyone got an update on this 10% discount we are getting? Timings etc?

    I'm hoping (but not counting any chickens) that it appears before the sale ends.

    No information coming out of the blog - they're saying that we'll be advised once they have specific information.

    I can't imagine we'll get it before the sale ends.

    I'm holding off buying some games waiting for that sales also. And the games included in this January sales are not really my cup of tea.

    But when that 10% off arrives, I'm gonna throw money at Sony anyway.
