Here is a link to the league. Feel free to kick off whenever, I imagine tonight will be a good opportunity to get some games in.

- 3pts for a win, 1 for the losing team if it goes to over time, 0 for a loss.
- Please record the scores for goal difference purposes.
- Every team plays each other twice, a home and away leg.
- 2 weeks provisional time limit to get your games done, though we can chop and change this if people race through their games or whatever.
- Scheduling games will just be worked on an honor system. Try and get them scheduled being accommodating as possible to the opposing team, if you're not getting any response or they're just not available the team trying to arrange the match will be awarded the win.
- No obligation to take screens or post videos of results (though they would be nice).
- Top 4 teams go through to the playoffs which will be a best of 3 legs to be played two weeks today (time variable)
- Final will be the best of 5 legs.
- Winners will be given the keys to GRcade

This is strawberry floating awesome.

It's bringing back great memories of the football multiplayer mode from Excitebike 64.

PS3 version was one of my most played multiplayer games, really looking forward to this.

Downloading now :)

EDIT: Can't download it yet, Store is currently undergoing maintenance.

Do you often contemplate the complexity of life?

I'm glad it was on Plus, because I've got no issue picking up the PC version too now, rather than having to choose.

Yeah this is pretty good, complete chaos. Hope we can get some GR games going. I - of course - am a 4-wheeled Messi already.

This looks interesting... and GameCentral has awarded it 9/10 in its review.

This could be the first game I've downloaded through PS Plus since Resogun during the PS4 launch weekend. I'm excited!

I hope you do mean "downloaded" and not first PS+ game you've "purchased" since Resogun.

The original was properly good fun. Real breath of fresh air, completely bonkers, outstanding multiplayer experience.

I'd download this now if the banana spliting store would work.

Apparently Rocket League's servers are also down, independent of the PSN downtime. Then again, 22k concurrent connections isn't to be sniffed at.

Nah, I haven't purchased or downloaded anything from PS Plus since Reso! Oh, hang on, I did download The Unfinished Swan on PS4, 'cos I'd already bought and played it on PS3 and it was a cross-buy. It's a brilliant title, but no different on PS4 so I deleted it.

I'd rather get discounts and choose what I buy then have a service that picks out random games. I know I'm in the minority, but I'm not overly keen on renting titles. I'd honestly rather that Sony used my subs fee to provide a more reliable network service than dishing out 'free' titles.

Outlast
PixelJunk Shooter: Ultimate Edition
Trine 2: Complete Story
TowerFall: Ascension
Fez
Velocity 2X
Dust: An Elysian Tail
Pix the Cat
Spelunky
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
inFamous: First Light
The Swapper
Rogue Legacy
Transistor
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty
OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood
Valiant Hearts: The Great War

These are all great games that you just threw the strawberry float away.

Anyway, yeah, Rocket League. I played SARBC for a few hours on PS3 and thought "man, this is great, but nobody I know owns it!". I hope the server troubles aren't going to put too many people off. Game is funkin' legit.

I just *knew* that sharing my viewpoint would only encourage lists!

I had MGS Ground Zeroes and Fez already; plus Trine 2 and The Swapper on Wii U. I'm not saying the others are bad, just that I'd rather spend time playing games of my own choice and those ones didn't tempt me. But, yeah, I probably should have downloaded Oddworld.

Anyway... I've just downloaded Rocket League and I'll give that a go tomorrow night :-).
