PS Plus Monthly Feature Image

It is that time of the month again, and we are featuring the free games that come with your PlayStation Plus subscription. Here is the overall trailer, and I will go into the individual games after.

PlayStation 4 Games

Furi

For many people the next title will be the highlight of the month’s releases. But for me, this is the really exciting one. This is a very new indie game by some prolific people within the game industry. And from concept to realization this has been a very fascinating one that I’ve long wanted to try.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell

Most of the people who would already own this one likely do, although perhaps for previous generation systems. But in case you don’t own it, or have been living under a rock, this one is like Grand Theft Auto only turn the humor and ridiculous situations up to 11.

PlayStation 3 Games

Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

Not quite up to the standard that Red Dead Redemption set, but still a great game in it’s own right. This one definitely performed below the audience that it deserved to have. Westerns are a very niche genre these days, but a good game is a good game.

Fat Princess

A very well loved small co-op game that carved out quite a fan base for itself. It was successful enough to warrant a sequel, which came out last December, although many people consider this version of the game to be superior.

PlayStation Vita

Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines

This is another amazing game in this month’s lineup. A lot of people missed out on this one last year due to a name that wasn’t widely recognized. But this is a classic turn based RPG with the art style of Okami. Trust me, this is right up the alley of much of the Operation Rainfall.

Prince of Persia: Revelations

Possibly the weakest entry of the month, but still a good game. This title released on the PSP originally, and it performs better on the PS Vita. Given how long it’s been since we’ve seen a Prince of Persia entry, though, it still be a welcome release for many.

PlayStation Plus Extra

As a bonus this month, PlayStation Plus subscribers will have early access to the Paragon beta before it hits Open Beta on August 16.

About William Haderlie

Born in the 1970's, I've been an avid participant for much of video game history. A lifetime of being the sort of supergeek entrenched in the sciences and mathematics has not curbed my appreciation for the artistry of video games, cinema, and especially literature.

    I was going to buy Furi day 1 anyway, but now I’ll play it via PS+. I’ve heard good things about Oreshika, so I’ll give that a try. Overall a really great month.

    • William Haderlie

      Agreed totally. One of the best months I’ve seen.

    F Gat out of hell. Long time SR fan, feel insulted they think I’d want that, even for free.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    Furi – I hadn’t heard of it before but it looks cool and a lil difficult but i’m game

    Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines – I’m most excited about since it’s been on my wishlist for awhile and now i get it for free. Luv it!!!

    Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood – Gonna grab this too. Luv me a western.

    Paragon – Not sure what that is but it looks nice.

    • Mr0303

      Furi is a bit like Devil May Cry with some bullet hell elements. It is a bit challenging and the game is only boss fights, but I really enjoyed it when I tried a demo at a convention.

      Paragon is the only one I’ll skip since it’s a MOBA.
