Really? That seems fairly obvious. I must have missed something during my excavations. Thank you sir!

Yeah it's tucked away in the System Settings. What ticks me off is that hard drives are advertised at their gross size and not their net size; particularly for consoles since you can't exactly play with the OS.

I don't own a PS4, so I'm just going by what I've heard, but apparently the available space on the launch PS4, which claims a 500 GB hd, is 411 GB. That's pretty crummy. Why can't they make a 589 GB hard drive so the customer actually gets 500 GB? Surely that's possible. I know this has been the case since the dawn of the hard disk, but I think as the size increases so too should practices change.

 

But yeah, hell of a time to have PS+ .. the list of everything they've had since 2012 is incredible: North America | PAL

I go on the store every Tuesday now and just "purchase" the new free stuff no matter what it is so I can get it at any time if it beckons. Since the program really kicked into gear in June 2012 I've played, for free: Pac-Man Championship Edition, The Walking Dead, NBA Jam, Mega Man 9, Closure, Spec Ops The Line, The Cave, Machinarium, Galaga Legions DX, Oddworld, Hotline Miami, PvZ, Mutant Blobs Attack, Virtue's Last Reward, Retro City Rampage Wipeout 2048, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush and Rayman Origins. Of course I don't mention the games I already owned... SotC, Ico, DXHR, Demon's Souls (!!!), Bioshock 2, Outland, Guardian of Light, Just Cause 2; and the ones I have yet to get to, Uncharted 3, XCOM Enemy Unknown, Borderlands 1 and 2, Darksiders, Sleeping Dogs, Saints Row 3, Jet Set Radio, Kingdoms of Amalur, Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen, Binary Domain, Soul Sacrifice, Sine Mora, SART (!)..... the value is bonkers.

Edit: Oh, and the wretched Bioshock Infinite, which I downloaded and am playing on Easy to see if it makes me hate it less. The combat, probably. The meh factor of everything else...unlikely. But damn if that first 30 minutes or so isn't something else.

For those who are curious but holding out, Broken Age is on sale today on Steam.  33% off, which makes it like $16.

I picked up Papers Please, The Stanley Parable and Tomb Raider for £14 as part of Steam's BAFTA awards sale. Not even sure whether that was a thing over the pond.

If you're one of the few people like me who didn't play Batman: Arkham City you can now grab it for free if you're a PS Plus member!

And if you're one of the many people who didn't play FORCED, you can get it on Steam half price!  Great game.

Well spotted! What Dix said. It's a fantastic co-op game that's best with your buddies.

Sang-Froid is going for practically nothing on Steam at the moment.

Metro: Last Night now $9.99 on Steam.  Purchased.  But now I feel sort of guilty when I think of those developers working without, you know, chairs.  And desks.

You! BOTCH! YOU ARE THE CHEAP BASTARD REFERRED TO IN MY VIDEO!!

I thought it was just a concept, an idea of cheap bastardy. I never thought it could be you! You seem nice!

Shame on you sir. Shame on you! A pox on your house etc etc etc

Enjoy it. It's pretty sweet, and man, so pretty if you've got the rig to really jack it up.

But...um...Helmut!  He did if first!

Fact: Cheap bastards are notoriously nice.  I'll feel even guiltier if I start playing if before finishing Metro 2033.

True, but Helmut made it all the way to Anor Londo without locking on to an enemy, so I pick my battles with him. And the battles I pick are only battles where he's way far away and I'm surrounded by muscular and intimidating bodyguards.

Lifeless Planet comes out on Friday, and it'll probably be a steal during the Summer Sale.

Save your money on Metro. It's a game that highlights how good its predecessor was by overcooking the recipe and just not doing it. I have not progressed past the 2 hr mark, I don't think. Perhaps, some might speculate, there are secret commands and keystrokes I have yet to discover that would enhance the experience, but I'm certain this is not the case. 

I wouldn't be so cheap if I didn't have two male dependents ages 6 and 9 with gaping pie holes to fill. Constantly. And word is it just gets worse. So I'm saving for the future.

So I've been seeing on Twitter that Uncharted 3 is free to PSN users.  Not PS+.  PSN.  Because I don't know why.  But apparently it's real, for now.  If you haven't played Uncharted 3, it isn't as strong as 2 but it is certainly well worth the low low price of downloading it for free.

Maybe we should call Helmut "Master of Unlocking".  Seriously Helmut, it's too bad you didn't take footage.  You would likely win the Internet.

Not liking Last Light?  Well that seals it.  I must play both to find out for myself.

I'm typically the first person to deride a sequel for forgetting what made its predecessor great in the first place. But there are exceptions (Gears of War & God of War come to mind). I enjoyed Uncharted 3 every bit as much as 1 & 2.

I would win the internet because of the rampant magnificence of my front diving evade and rebounding katana upslice through the ying.

I'm just glad I took the opportunity to wiki the rite of kindling to discover I can elevate to 20 estus flasks rather than waiting for someone to mention it.

The absolutely magnificent Freespace 2 - pinnacle of the starfighter sim - hit Steam today, and it's half off for the next week (making it $4.99).  If you haven't played it yet you must.  Today.  Right now.
