PS Plus Monthly Feature Image

PlayStation 4

Resident Evil

This is a great release for those who have not purchased this already. This is the game that defined what modern horror video games were, only this time with upgraded visuals that improve the experience drastically. It was also highly important to me personally because it was the first game that I purchased for my PlayStation 1. For several weeks, my new grey console was purely a Resident Evil machine. And the first 3 games of this series remain some of my favorite gaming memories.

Transformers: Devastation

The output of Platinum Games has recently come under some fire for losing some of their noted quality, in particular Korra and TMNT. But between those two releases was this game, and by most measurements this was a much better game than it had to be. Especially if you are my age, and you grew up with Transformers on the television every Saturday morning, the affection that was put into this title is really worth experiencing.

PlayStation 3

Mad Riders

To be honest, not really my thing. But it’s good to have variety in the PS Plus releases, even if it’s a motorbike racing and trick game.

From Dust

This one is a little more interesting to me. I never played it myself, but it strongly reminds me of the old Lionhead Studios real time strategy games, Black & White.

PlayStation Vita

Actual Sunlight

This is one of the few Western Visual Novels that is actually pretty well regarded. But this is a very indie title, so chances are not many of the PS Plus subscribers own it, even with the extremely high Vita attach rate.

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~

The beloved handheld is getting quite a bit of Visual Novel love this week. This time it is a very well regarded series out of Japan, in Code: Realize. Justin reviewed this title for us when it was first released, and he was rather fond of it, so check out his review here for a more in-depth overview on whether you should download this one.

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 haven’t played any of those games, so it’s a good month for me. The highlight for me is Transformers – I heard it’s one of Platinum’s better games.

      I wouldn’t put it quite up there with Bayonetta, but it is definitely a better game than Korra, even though I’m a huge fan of both Avatar and Transformers. 🙂

      I haven’t played Korra, because the Avatar series ended after Book 3 and there was nothing else.

      Platinum’s last couple of games do lack polish (TMNT and Revengeance come to mind), but I’ve heard good things about Transformers.
