Such an amazing month. I already own half of that list but I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Ether One, Hohokum and Race the Sun.

5 games on the PS4 damnit lol

Ron_Danger1302d ago (Edited 1302d ago )

Hohokum is one of my favorite indie games this gen. Same dev as Frobisher Says on Vita and (IMHO) best soundtrack (non-classical) of any game this gen. If you like the artists Tycho or Com Truis you'll love it cause the entire soundtrack is done by their record label Ghostly International.

It's one of those games where you are thrown in with zero explaination and you just mess around till you figure it out. Every "level" is different and the music gets remixed live while you play depending on your actions.


Ummm... Rayman Legends was released on ps+ last year. It's currently sitting in my PS+ folder on my Vita.

rdgneoz31302d ago

I may be in your folder for your vita, but it wasn't crossbuy when it released.

Overall, 5 games is not a bad month. They'll keep me busy till Witcher 3 comes out.

Genuine-User1302d ago

Thanks for all the info. I will most definitely give it a shot, and who knows, I might like it as much as you do.

fdkenzo1302d ago

Awfull month, Sony you disapoint me .....if i was'nt obligated to have ps+ for multiplayer, now probably i canceled my subscrition..... F.U Sony !!!

ExplodingJuice1302d ago

Then don't download the games. Not hard to do. Complaining about free games....

Kal-V31302d ago

How about you.. oh i dont know..ACTUALLY TRY the games. You are getting them anyway. Why not save yourself the blind anger of "they are indie so i automatically hate them" and play them, THEN not like them so at least you have an argument.

Genuine-User1302d ago

What utter nonsense.


Guacamelee - 87
Unfinished Swan - 83
Ether One - 82
Race the Sun - 76
Hohokum - 75

Or maybe you just have an awful taste in games?
Granted I've only played one of those games on that list "The Unfinished Swan" but I can tell you it is fantastic, you are missing out if you don't give at least that game a shot.

insomnium21301d ago

Ummm... FU Sony? For this? Only having all the luxuries in the world at your disposal will make you this spoiled. Gotta say I feel sorry for you.

Kurt Russell1301d ago

I feel the same, not for me. I'm sure I had Guacamelee free on my PS3 already?

Love it

GameSpawn1301d ago

I only got burned for May PS+ by Unfinished Swan because I bought that one close to when it came out. You win some and you loose some...whatever.

Ether One is the most interesting out of the list to me (I love puzzle games). This is not a terrible lineup and most of the games are crossbuy meaning there's more than 2 games if you only own a PS3 [3 Games], PS4 [5 Games], or PSVita [4 Games].

I do recommend Unfinished Swan to the uninitiated though. For the most part it is a laid back relaxing game with a nice little story - a good change of pace to most of the faster paced games people usually play.

I didn't even know murasaki baby had released. I remember the announcement, remember being excited about it, then forgot about it. No AAA games this month, but definitely a stellar line up of indie games. Some great examples of what indies can do.

miyamoto1301d ago (Edited 1301d ago )

Been waiting for Hohokum! At last its finally here.
Last months Never Alone was such a very nice two player game. We love it. And our understanding and love for indie games grows even bigger.

Such a great line up this month of May!

Cool I always wanted to play guacamelee (but didn't really want to pay for it!)

slappy5081302d ago

I'm sure it was! It did get a super high rating on metacritic. I have a tendency not to purchase these games because the likelyhood of it coming to ps plus is almost certain. My vita will be happy with all the other games

Genuine-User1302d ago

If only I had the patience to wait a few months lol.

hades071302d ago

Youll certainly enjoy it, especially if you are a fan of Metroidvania with some Super Meat Boy style puzzle platform timing sections added.

Volkama1302d ago

I received an email invited my to take a survey on Playstation Plus yesterday. Figured "yeah, may as well let them know what I want".

First question: "Before we begin, please tell us what device you are completing this service from".

Ok, 'other smart phone'. Next.

That was it, survey complete. There were no further questions. It's great to feel like my opinion is important. I hope they take my feedback on board! :)

rainslacker1301d ago

Maybe they're looking to expand PS+ to more devices, and just wanted to see what else their users have?
