It's nice to get a console section for the forums, the non-Nintendo platforms will have a nice home (why hasn't anyone else posted in this thread yet D: ). Anyway, I've downloaded Batman Arkham Asylum as part of PS+, is it any good? I thought I'd give it a go at some point. Just wanted to know people's opinions on it.

I bought it cheap on disc, and tried giving it a go not long ago, but to be honest I just couldn't get into it. I didn't find the combat satisfying or particularly fun, and that is basically the game. However it did seem solidly made, for what it is, and I know I'm in the minority for not praising it.

Is anyone else getting Freedom Wars on Vita this week? Digital release is on Wednesday and physical on Friday!

Arkham Asylum is really good and definitely worth playing. I also think it's the best of the three Arkham game although most people seem to prefer City.

Thing is, I bought Arkham City a while back, but didn't buy Arkham Asylum before it (not sure why, just didn't I suppose). PS+ has given me an opportunity to play it, which order chronologically do the Arkham games go in by the way? Is it Origins -> Asylum -> City? Maybe I should play them in that order?

I've pre-ordered the physical copy, got it real cheap on Amazon (around £23), which is pretty good considering it's a new game and hasn't been released yet.

It doesn't really matter.

I suppose not. I'll play Arkham Asylum first then as it's the easiest to access to currently.

I don't have time to play my ps3 anymore which sucks. KH 2.5 HD might be the next and last game it ever plays. Going to swipe my brothers PS4 for when Type-0 HD is out. Words cannot describe my hype for that XV demo too.
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

Hope it's ok to ask for help on here. Anyway my boyfriend has a PS3 & every time we watch Netflix the sound cuts out every now & then. Any idea why?

Sony secretly do this to get try and get you to upgrade to their new Netflix player, the PS4 ;)

Being serious I have no idea, make sure all the cable connections are nice and tight or maybe your speakers/TV is on it's way out if it's getting on. I'm sure some other forumers may have a better answer for you.

If it's only happening with Netflix I imagine it will be a problem with the Netflix App/whatever it is called as opposed to something fixable in the playstation system settings. I'm afraid I can't offer any help beyond that. Definitely okay to ask here though!

Getting to the point now where I've played everything I've wanted to play on PS3 and the jump up to PS4 is on the cards for next year (probably June, when Arkham Knight is out).

Think my boyfriends tv is quite new as it's a 3D tv. Will double check the cables next time I'm round there.

Yeah it only happens on Netflix as when he's playing a game the sound doesn't cut out at all same with watching TV. Thanks you two for your replies.

Try deleting the Netflix app and then redownload and reinstall it.

Think I might be getting a PS4 for Christmas this year. (Which is super awesome but I don't know if I'd want my mum spending that much.)

Would like to try out Destiny if so... I mainly want one for Kingdom Hearts 3 and that Ratchet reboot thing.

PS4's 2.00 update rolled out yesterday. It has a USB Music Player, which is practically useless because from what I can see there's no way to mix the sounds coming from your TV, which means Dinklage is talking all over my songs

So, been playing Freedom Wars for a couple of days now. So far - really liking it. It is a lot more story-driven than I was expecting, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you want to play it as a single player game. I'm yet to multiplayer but that will happen tomorrow, so I shall see how it fares. The actual gameplay will work well, it's just the number of quests available not tied to story content that I am worried about (don't want to be constantly stopping multiplayer to do story in order to unlock more stuff).

The style/setting of the game is super cool, with some really nice ideas. The gameplay is also very fleshed out with lots of content. So yeah, so far, recommended!

From the sounds of it, next month's PS Plus freebies are looking good. Lot of indie stuff. Binding of Isaac Rebirth on day one is the highlight for me. Played the original on PC, but I prefer playing on console. Not sure if our line-up's the exact same as the US, but if so, SteamWorld Dig will be free this November also. I'd recommend that game to everyone here because it's one of my favourite 3DS games of all time. Something truly fun, challenging and unique

Bit of a bummer I already bought SteamWorld Dig - but it was on a heavily discounted special offer so not much loss there.

As for the other game: Binding of Isaac Rebirth? Day one. I will be getting it.

I'm now fully up and running with the new console, took me a while to get on PSN as i... umm... forgot my password. :oops:

Anyhow, redeemed my PSPlus code, played a couple of Advanced Warfare matches so far, and activated the facebook link.

I will start Lego Marvel tomorrow, which should be fun.

Might also try and trade in a few of my old PS3 titles and put the store credit towards something else (unfortunately, i only have space on my table for one console, which means the PS3 has had to be packed away).
