I didn't love Edith Finch like I expected to, but it's a beautiful game with amazing voice acting and some really innovative ideas for the walking sim genre. I haven't played Overcooked but it looks neat. Pretty decent month.

Great month! Looking forward to playing Edith Finch and I may have Overcooked but it's a great chance for everyone else who hasn't tried it to enjoy this great little game.

Overcooked is such a fantastic game.
And i always wanted to play Edith Finch, heard a lot of good things about it, so yeah, seems like a great month.

Edith Finch..... this game once you play it I assure you it will hunt for for the rest of your life.

What a hunting touching emotional beautiful story told in the most unique way ever, gosh what an amazing experience.

Personally disappointing - I already have both - but they're both pretty solid choices if true.

Oh awesome, I never but on Edith Finch but was always curious. It got added to game pass I noticed when I booted up my X yesterday, so guess now I just have to choose where to play it.

These are both exceptional titles, great that more people can experience them.

However, it's another month where dropping the PS3 and Vita games (usually one or two a month with PS4 cross-play) hasn't really resulted in anything different than what we had before and it's starting to really feel like the service has really lost value since March.

aah fuck this, i am done with Sony and their monthly games, the last few months have just been disappointing. my ps+ sub is ending somewhere at the end of this year and i hope atleast they add some great titles.

Those would be hella disappointing. Didn’t like Edith and tbh both are available on GP, which while that’s not necessarily something Sony should care for, it devalues PS+ further for me.

I kinda wanted Metal Gear Survive since I didn't wanna pay out my dollaroos for it. Oh well, Overcooked'll be a laugh at least.

Happy to get my hands on Overcooked, played it at a friend's and enjoyed it. Edith Finch is great... but I've owned it since launch.

Isn't this only about £20 worth of games? Glad to see the removal of the Vita and PS3 games and price rise are paying off /s

Decent games, but damn when did this service become “old indie games the subscription”. I kinda feel like we should be getting one AAA and one indie game per month. Or maybe like newer games at least...

when there are AAA games: "i already have these games already! this service sucks"
when there are good indie games: "i dont care about indies give me AAA"

It hasn't leaked yet in France. I'm happy about Overcooked but I probably won't even claim my free copy of Edith Finch

I am happy about Edith Fintch since I was going to buy it eventually, but overcooked 1? Kinda lame since the sequel is better in everything

It runs a lot better on PS4. I've played it on both and the XB1 version isn't X Enhanced. It's lower res, muddier and jerkier than the PS4 version.

Still a great experience but if you have the option then PS4 is definitely the way to go.

Might be a weak month for some but those are both games I’m missing so I’m happy with it.

That’s exactly what I was looking for thank you, always easier with one being a clear choice.

I was really disappointed with how linear Edith Finch was. They have a huge mansion full of secrets and hidden rooms and yet the game never encourages you to explore, discover or solve puzzles, only to move from designated point to point.

This has to be a joke. They raised the prices of plus several times and this is all we get?

Where the hell is Ruiner or Gravity Rush 2 or Shadow of the Colossus or even some JRPG.
Fuck, why not Doom 2016.

So many choices and they give us this.

Good for people who haven't played them I suppose.
I already owned and played them both.

They're both great titles, but that is no where near sufficient, especially given we only get PS4 titles now and the price itself is slightly higher too.

Where I'm at (don't know too much about Overcooked, but I loved Edith Finch).

Especially since one of them (Edith Finch) was available for free (on PC) not long ago iirc.

Played Edith Finch a few days ago, which I got for free via epic. Really touching story a much better than the similar gone home.

But yeah, I'll let my subscription definitely run out this time. Too many free or cheap games nowdays. But still a few years left lol
