Nope, don't have PS+ at this point. That's one of the motivators making me prob pick up Rocket League on Steam, can play it free there. I'm usually not big into multiplayer, played a decent amount of Halo in college but that's about it.

I loved Dark Souls, so I expect to enjoy Bloodbourne. Dark Souls 2 was... meh though. Is it weird that I thought it wasn't difficult enough? I think I beat the whole game and only 4 or 5 of the million bosses managed to beat me even once. (I eventually disconnected my internet for the damn Mirror Knight that keeps pulling in other real players... *******s just run in circles healing the damn boss).

Dark Souls has a fantastic atmosphere.

Also s that the story is there, it just takes a lot of effort to get it.

I didn't do it with the first two souls games but after beating 3 and bloodborne I pulled up the youtube videos that explained the story and just have an "oh, that's what was really going on" moment.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

Got my Champ 3 titles back in 3v3 and 2v2 ranked in the new Rocket League season. Even briefly hit div 2, Champ 3 in 2v2, but dropped back down. I don't see how Grand Champ is in the cards for me, just too much of a gap to bridge in order to be a consistent player at that level.

Kinda fun playing some ranked Dropshot/Rumble/Hoops as well now that you get more even matches. There was always an underlying, behind the scenes ranking system for those playlists though. I just hope the number of players in those playlists keeps somewhat high, I imagine the higher up you get that it would be really really hard to find matches on something like Dropshot. I've found my wall aerials in normal ranked games are improving somewhat from playing hoops and dropshot more.

How many people are buying Blackout? (believe it comes out today). Still on the fence myself, but probably end up getting it.

Nice. Champ is really solid. I'm at Gold for 2v2 playing only with my cousin, who is a bit worse than I am.

3v3 solo is rough. Only at silver there.

Haven't played 3v3 yet. Was at Platinum last time I played (3-6 months ago) from just solo queuing. But haven't jumped back into that yet.
