I'm looking forward to finally checking out Spec Ops. It's not something I am interested enough in to pay for on its own, but I'll gladly play it as part of my Plus benefits. I wish I would have held off on The Cave. That game is not good.

I was thinking about Picking up Spec Ops for a long time, because I was interested in what it was doing narrative wise, but I got bogged down with my back log. This is an excellent opportunity to check it out, and I have been enjoying it so far.

@awesomeusername: Baller. I thought adding the videos, link to reviews, and metacritic scores would be useful though instead of just dumping the material in a blog post. Couldn't you just link to the Playstation Blog?

I'm continually impressed by what Sony offers for "free" with their paid service. I reupped my subscription even though I rarely play on my PS3 so I could finally play Vanquish and inFamous 2.

That's true, but most people on this site already know most of the games that come out. I could just link to to the Blog but then that'd be spam and since most of the people don't visit the Blog, it makes sense to post all the stuff up for them. I'm not saying you have to stop, just letting you know that you really don't need to do it.

I'm really needing a bigger HDD right now for my ps3. Never thought when I bought it that 80gb wouldn't be enough.

I'd rather see a whole blog post in this format on this site than have to keep up with the Playstation blog, though. Pretty neat.

However, we did have someone else that was already doing the same thing. Wasn't it @fluxwavez?

Yep, I retired. @awesomeusername started doing them, but I think I prefer this thread's format of posting videos, reviews and scores associated with the PS Plus content.

@fluxwavez: My reason for doing so was to provide a background for users. A place where they can view the content before downloading it.

So we agree that @kieran_smith5 should start doing the whole Store updates then?! GREAT!
