Five Games To Play While PSN Is Down
No PSN? BUT WHAT THE HELL CAN YOU PLAY? You can play these things…
What the hell is all this about PSN? Sorry, been off for a while, must have passed me by. So it’s “down”, you say? Right, well we’ll have to come up with something else to do then. Possibly in list form. Because lists are ace. Howsabout five games to play that you really don’t need PSN for at all? Yeah, that’ll do:
Even when you’ve finished it, as I have, there’s still enough to just mess about with. Hours can be spent exploring, picking flowers (don’t laugh), picking fights, taking the arena fan bloke/kid thing to the top of a mountain and pushing him off, riding your horse and getting it stuck behind small rocks, easily beating minotaurs in one hit and many other activities. It’s ruddy brilliant.
Dragon Age 2
A shorter, more focused take on the fantasy RPG. It’s split opinion with many folks, but what better chance to give it a chance than when you have no excuse to run off to play Call Of Duty? I say give it a chance, but then I am a fanboy. Maybe. Possibly.
This is more a reminder to myself to play through Metal Gear Solid 4 again, as it’s brilliant. Also: no risk of multiplayer ruining things, as who ever bothered with Metal Gear Online?
Play it the way it’s meant to be played – against other people sat in the same room as you. Playing online is nonsense, because you can’t punch the other person in the face when they get one of those flukey bastard goals other people always bloody get. Or you can knock their pad out of their hands. Ah, bliss.
Any horrible timesink JRPG ever
Self-explanatory, really. If you can be bothered with them, they will eat up all of your time.
That should cover you until the Evil Overlords Who Definitely Want To Kill Us All By Stopping Us From Using PSN (“Sony”) pull their thumbs out.
