I'm pretty new to the Playstation Network Plus thing. I only remember subscribing to it because I was given a month for free. It did ask me for my credit card number when activating the free one-month subscription, and I guess I forgot to unsubscribe before my free month was up. I didn't do my research on it, and I didn't really care for it since I was an Xbox 360 fanboy. When I read that I'd be given free games with my PSN+ subscription, I automatically assumed that the offer would include some lame stuff that I would never want to play, and for the first couple of months that's exactly what I saw.
I first subscribed to PSN+ a few months ago, and when I checked out what was free to download, I was pretty disappointed. The only PS3 title that I found worth mentioning was Dark Souls, and of course that game was free because the game is so goddamn difficult that no one wanted to purchase it. I still haven't beat the game.
The other titles that were free on a monthly basis were different Playstation Vita games. I don't own a PS Vita, which made my PSN+ subscription even more useless. I kind of gave up on the whole thing.
It's been a couple of months since I last turned on my PS3. The last game I played was Ni No Kuni. It wasn't until I saw a credit card charge for a three-month subscription renewal for PSN+. Crap, I forgot to unsubscribe again.
On a whim, I decided to check out what's there to download since I'm stuck with it for another three months. To my surprise, there was actually things I would actually find myself playing. Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3 were available and I quickly confirmed both downloads.
While waiting for those two to download, I turned on my 360 to play a couple of rounds of Black Ops 2. Before I could get the game started, I get a text from a friend saying that Assassin's Creed 2 is free in Xbox Live. More free stuff? Heck yeah!
Now all I need to do is find some spare time so I can actually play these games.
