October’s PlayStation Plus lineup is a bit of a range. Friday the 13th is good for some co-op scares, and there’s also some indie gems in The Bridge and Read Only Memories. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
Just in time for Forsaken, PlayStation Plus members can get Destiny 2 as part of September’s offerings. As an added bonus, the game is available starting today. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PS Plus membership.
I’ve been meaning to play Mafia III since it came out, and now that it’s one of August’s PlayStation Plus games, I might finally do it. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
I’ve never actually played a David Cage game; I end up watching them on YouTube since they’re already so cinematic. Could Heavy Rain’s inclusion in July’s PS Plus lineup change my trend? (Probably not.) As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
I’ve always lacked the patience for XCOM games. Maybe June’s PS Plus lineup will encourage me to give XCOM 2 a go, at least until I lose a squad member and quit in sadness yet again. As always, PS Plus games are only “free” if you have an active PS Plus subscription.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III mixes the series’ familiar first-person shooting with a wild cyberpunk storyline. The narrative breaks apart the further the player progress unless it finally explodes in a level that mixes World War II, zombies, and dying dreams. That level, Demon Within, is both the high point of the…
If you need some David Cage before Detroit comes out in May, next month’s PlayStation Plus lineup has you with Beyond: Two Souls. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus account.
Now that the West is getting new Yakuza games every six months, there’s never been a better to check out the series. But with over seven games and numerous spin offs, it can be hard to know where to start. Well, today’s your lucky day! Let me help you take your first step into one of gaming’s best series.
If you don’t own Bloodborne, you’re in luck with March’s PlayStation Plus offerings. There are also going to be some changes coming to PS Plus next year.
Dead Space brims with apprehension and panic—its tight spaceship corridors provide little place to run as monsters challenge the player to adapt quickly or get torn to shreds. The game’s final boss, a giant zombie slug, throws all of that out. Dead Space’s final boss fight is a loud, bombastic battle that clashes with…
We recently finished playing Deadly Premonition on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. In Deadly Premonition, FBI detective Francis York Morgan tries to find the murderer behind a series of serial killings in the town of Greenvale. Greenvale is full of colorful residents with daily schedules and humanizing side-stories. Its…
February’s PlayStation Plus lineup has you covered if you missed Rime or, like me, heard the jokes about Knack but never actually played it. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.
The Yakuza series has a few constants: burly men with tattoos, karaoke and cabaret, dramatic fist fights, and the city of Kamurocho. From Yakuza 0’s 1980s setting to Yakuza 6’s modern day, players have seen the city grow and expand, adding life and character to one of gaming’s greatest locations.
There are some good games in January’s PlayStation Plus lineup. In addition to some solid PS4 games with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Telltale’s Batman, the PS3 gets The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and the Vita gets Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active…
There’s a range of games in December’s PlayStation Plus lineup, from the bloody action of Darksiders II to visual novel Xblaze Lost: Memories. As always, these games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus membership.
Today, Sony Entertainment and Atlus announced that the online servers for Demon’s Souls will shut down next year on February 28th. The game, which mixed online and single-player elements, will transform into something completely different. This asks the question: how do we preserve experiences tied to online features?
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is an awkward game that feels a little bit like world full of Disney World animatronics. One piece of poison food highlighted the game’s silliness while also forcing players to get intimate with their targets.
I managed to miss Bound when it came out last year, so I’m excited to see it make its way to November’s PlayStation Plus lineup. As always, the following games are only “free” if you have an active PlayStation Plus membership.
