PlayStation Plus Free Games (October 2020)

In October 2020, PlayStation Plus members get another pair of free games with their subscription. Subscribers can claim Vampyr and Need for Speed Payback. These games are yours to keep as long as you’re a part of the PlayStation Plus program.

Developed by Dontnod Entertainment–the studio behind the Life is Strange series–Vampyr is an action-RPG that flew under the radar when it released in 2018. You play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a man who took a hippocratic oath to help the citizens of London but now finds himself a newly turned vampire. This understandably creates a moral dilemma, and there’s also a widespread influenza outbreak that is threatening the population. Your choices in Vampyr truly matter, altering both the gameplay and the story. It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot’s Vampyr review.

Racing fans can pick up Need for Speed Payback, the 2017 entry in the long-running series developed

PSA: First Free Year of Apple TV+ Subscriptions Ending, Expect Charges on October 31

With the launch of the iPhone 11 lineup and the introduction of the Apple TV+ subscription service in the fall of 2019, Apple gave those who purchased an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV a free year of Apple TV+.


For those who signed up for Apple TV+ right when it was available on November 1, 2019, those free year-long Apple TV+ accounts are expiring at the end of October. A year is a long time to remember to cancel a subscription, so we wanted to warn MacRumors readers not interested in keeping Apple TV+ that charges are imminent. The first subscribers will be charged for Apple TV+ on October 31, 2020.

For Apple TV+, Apple did not allow subscriptions to be canceled right after signup because doing so would end the subscription right away, so there are many potentially active Apple TV+ subscriptions out there. Here’s how to cancel.

‘Destiny 2’ Made Two Years Of Content Free, But It’s Deleting It, So What Now?

Probably the single biggest move Destiny 2 made after its split from Activision was making a sizable portion of the game free-to-play. The project was called “New Light,” meant to bring in Guardians from all over the gaming world to try Destiny if they had avoided it so far.

The amount of content offered was substantive. The entire base game of Destiny 2 and all its Red War campaign missions. Then both follow-up DLCs, Curse of Osiris and Warmind. Then most of the content in year 2, Seasons of the Forge, Drifter and Opulence. It’s a hefty mountain of content available for free.

And now, it’s almost all going away.

One thing Bungie has really not talked about at all is how the concept of the Destiny Content Vault is changing the free-to-play premise of New Light. A long, long time ago we got the barest hint

The Longhorns (2-0) are hoping to keep up their winning ways and get revenge on a Pittsburgh team that took advantage of numerous UT errors in a win last year. For the Horned Frogs (0-1), head coach Gary Patterson’s goal is probably to see his team take a big step forward from its first game to its second.

Here’s what to watch when the two squads tangle in Austin on Saturday.

Gary Patterson reunited co-offensive coordinators Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham on his staff this year after Meacham spent a couple seasons at Kansas. The pairing seemed to produce in game one, with the Horned Frogs busting out for 34 points and nearly 500 yards of total offense.

Sophomore quarterback Max Duggan gave Pittsburgh

Google workers say NDAs ban whistleblowing, violate free speech

  • Google contractors alleged in a lawsuit that they were required to sign illegal nondisclosure agreements that prevented them from whistleblowing and violated their free speech rights.
  • According to a California court’s discussion of the legal proceedings, the workers claimed Google’s rules barred them from reporting “violations of state and federal law,” “unsafe or discriminatory working conditions,” and “wage and hour violations.”
  • The workers, some of whom were employed via the staffing agency Adecco, claimed they couldn’t even write “novels” or “reassure their parents they are making enough money to pay their bills.”
