Start the new year with Day of the Tentacle Remastered and This War of Mine: The Little Ones.
I had been waiting for This War of Mine to go on sale, so to get it for free is just awesome.
This !!! Actually really wanted to just buy it,.. It is an amazing game. Really happy with January's PS Plus with this one alone.
Looks like 4 cool games for PS4 Why would you bother looking 'at the you tube dislikes again' septic anyway? I never even like you tube vid in the first place so dislikes are not representative either @Deadpooled How much do you bet? I can't even understand how you can come up with those completely unrelated assumptions. Wtf? haha
Titan Souls FInally!!!!! and its cross buy vita and PS4!
I have wanted both these games for awhile. Was just about to pull the trigger on This War of Mine: the Little Ones. Do you know if that is a separate title from This War of Mine? Great start to what can only be a another great year for gaming. @Septic What is wrong with people? 6 free games and good ones at that. SMH
So happy we also get Titan Souls and The Swindle on PS4, i almost bought them numerous times. 4 intriguing PS4 games and 3 VITA games, great month.
This War of Mine...sweet was going to pick that up once my backlog thins out now I'll just add it.
"This War of Mine" is a game I was interested in, but not ready to buy at the time. Now I'll get it for free, which is nice. I had already played Day of the Tenacle on PC and game consoles. Never played the remastered version, so I guess another play through can't hurt. Besides "The Swindle", I know nothing about the other 3 games. Looks like Sony decided to scrape the Indie barrel one more time and see what they could scoop out.
Some people are never happy I guess...5 dollars for these great games.
@Errorist76 Not a whole lot to be happy about. They still haven't even given us Knack or DriveClub yet. Funny, because if any of these games were part of Microsoft's GWG, you'd be the first one in the article bashing them. @Mr-Writer I'm talking about the full version, not the demo that was released almost 2 years late. No, I won't buy Knack. Should have been on PSPlus by now. I'd rather save my money for more promising games like Horizon and Days Gone. @IamTylerDurden1 I don't game on PC much and I had never heard of Titan Souls. There are 100's of Indies out there and I don't try to keep track of all of them. The most recent PC Indie I'm interested in is OwlBoy. I hope that comes to game consoles. Not an awesome month. Another Indie month with a couple games to try. Besides Day of the Tentacle, I don't think any of these games scored an 80 or higher.
@Xander Driveclub has been on Plus ages ago. http://www.gamespot.com/art... As for Knack if you really want to play it, buy it?
Xander You are a PlayStation and PC gamer and you never heard of Titan Souls or Devolver Digital? Damn...
Don't forget TItan Soul! Its on Vita but its cross buy with PS4, so buying it gets you the PS4 version folks!
Agreed, I'm excited for this title as well
Awesome month. 4 quality PS4 titles. The Swindle is a stylish rogue like. Day of the Tentacle is aTim Schafer classic. This Little War is a stellar game plus an expansion. Titan Souls is a bad ass boss rush game where you only have a single arrow to defeat horrowing, 1 hit kill monsters.
I bought This War of Mine a few months ago on sale, but still haven't gotten around to it. At first I was bummed to see it for free, but honestly it looks so good that the developers deserve as many people playing their game as possible.
Really looking forward to playing Titan Souls, Day of the Tentacle & War of Mine.
I knew holding off on Titan Souls would pay off!!!
Wow. 8 people disagree with you looking forward to playing those games! Go home N4G, you're delusional.
Don't even download them, that only tells them they can get away with just giving shovelware. Sony use to try, but now that they're beating Xbox to a pulp and PS+ is required for online they just give you throwaway stuff.
Sony a Savage
I've made a list of a few of the top games that were added to PS+, the dates they were added, and how long after the game was released at retail, during the PS3 days. Here's what the Golden Era of PS+ was: Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2 - June 2012 (1 year after release) Saints Row 2 - July 2012 (1 year and a half after release) Just Cause 2 - Aug 2012 (2 years after release) Red Dead Redemption - Sep 2012 (2 years after release) Ratchet & Clank All 4 One - Nov 2012 (1 year after release) Arkham City - Dec 2012 (1 year after release) Bioshock 2 - Jan 2013 (3 years after release) Sleeping Dogs - Feb 2013 (6 months after release!) Mass Effect 3 - March 2013 (1 year after release) Hitman - May 2013 (6 months after release) Uncharted 3 - June 2013 (1 year and a half after release) Battlefield 3, Saints Row 3 - July 2013 (1 year and a half after release) Spec Ops: The Line - July 2013 (1 year after release) Assassin's Creed 3 - Aug 2013 (1 year after release) Far Cry 3 - Sep 2013 (1 year after release) Borderlands 2 - Dec 2013 (1 year after release) Bioshock Infinite - Jan 2014 (1 year after release) Tomb Raider - March 2014 (1 year after release) PES 14 - April 2014 (6 months after release)
Those days are LONG gone. Now (since they made it a requirement for online play) they aren't even trying anymore. They just slap a few indie titles to the release list from month to month. I had hope when I saw Transformers that they were back on track...alas such is not the case.
These were the times when multiplayer was free and ps plus was optional (as it still should be), so they had to offer games that made people want to sign a subscription. And because(and even if) they make much more money off ps plus nowadays, sony does not have to offer "big" games on a regular basis. But atleast there were a few gems from time to time. Rocket league, transformers, outlast, stick it to the man, infamous first light, tropico, journey, valiant hearts, the swapper,lords of the fallen, helldivers, injustice, oddworld new and tasty are the ones that come to my mind which i really enjoyed, a few might be missing
Yakuza 4 and 5, P4:arena ultimax, and dragons crown should be there too. I think plus would do better if they had more Japanese games. PS3 was great for this but ever since the PS4 launched the best it's gotten was Ground zeroes.
This has everything to do with the life cycle of the console IMO. These games were provided toward the end of the PS3's life (notice none of them are on PS4). As we get toward the back end of the PS4 (say 3-4 more years from now) I would expect similar AAA releases more regularly peppered in. AAA makes sense only when a sequel is about to launch (to promote the franchise to new players), or if the developer has some other incentive (like continued sales of DLC or micro transaction type incentives). Otherwise using PS+ as a platform to promote unknown indi and AA developers is a good use of the platform. Edit- It also makes sense for under performing games that the developer hopes to help further promote and offset their losses on. Also, just from a common sense stand point, while I love free (cheap) as much as the next guy, I think it's astonishing consumers paying $5 a month (yeah $5 dollars!!!) expect AAA games for that price. Seriously over-entitled non-sense IMO
How about off the top of my head i tell you we got Resogun, Outlast, and Rocket League day 1 and games like Injustice Ultimate, Infamous 1st Light, Transformers Devastation, Resident Evil, Helldivers, Oddworld NnT, NBA 2K, Yakuza 5 and more within about a year of release this gen. Since your putting 3 yr old games, we also got Lords of the Fallen, Dishonored, Thief, Saints Row, Journey HD, Valient Hearts, Persona 4 AU, Oreshika, Freedom Wars, and more. Also, we don't get PSP and PS1 games every single month like we did last gen. We have crossbuy now and this month we are getting 4 quality PS4 and 3 VITA games. Last gen was obscenely long and by the time PS+ freebies started there was already a solid catalogue of games. It's unfair to compare, but this gen while we don't get as many big games with name recognition i personally think the OVERALL quality is actually better. We get many new games, and less throwaway games, and many are crossbuy.
I highly recommend Day of the Tentacle. On a side note I can't wait for Full Throttle later on in the year. I guess I'll try This War of Mine.
Not only games with graphics from the 90's this month, but actual game from the 90's this month.
And still one of the best games ever..some people are so ignorant it hurts.
Caught with your...pantz down again.
@errorist76 yes one of the best games 20+ years ago. Not so much anymore. Much like Grim Fandango it doesn't withstand the test of time.
I've wanted to play This War of Mine for quite some time. Didn't even know it had come to console.
Day of the Tentacle is a classic. Considered one of the best games ever made. I will get Full throttle soon though. One of my favorite games of all time, and looking forward to playing it again after all these years.
Last month was trash but this makes up for it. Really wanted to play TWoM. DoTT is classic and TS will also get a shot as I haven't played it yet. Nice month.
This war of mine was a stellar experience, a definite recommend! Can't wait to play the new game.
Thanks for the recommendation I'll put the game on my download list.
It's always great when I get a game that I genuinely wanted to play. Day of The Tentacle, and Titan Souls excite me. I will at least try Azkend 2 and The Swindle(which looks interesting.) *I already own This War of Mine, btw.
Welp, another month I don't buy PS+...
Ok cool, save your money and move along.
Bluefox I understand you. It seems that there's always some people that get pumped for the selections on plus. But I personally have only been excited once when hot line Miami came out and just recently with yakuza 5 but damn I had to hook up the ps3 again from storage to play it. Who has room on their TV stans for that anymore? I would have to bee in the camp that feels Sony is just not trying hard enough to get better titles for Plus. I can understand even 3 months where there' nothing that interests me but years? There's something wrong there.
Look at those dislikes in the video!!, people are expecting Uncharted 4 or what??? Anyway, I've been wanting to play This War of Mine for a long time.
pretty much. Kids on youtube want to buy PS+ for 10$ and play 2 new AAA titles worth 100$
I don't think it's that drastic. But look at what we got on PS3 with PS plus every month before the PS4 launch and than compare what we get on PS4 with PS plus every month. Pretty underwhelming.
Thats not what it sounds like to me. Sounds like they would rather play Killzone Shadow Fall or any other older AAA game similar to PSN+ back on PS3
Na, I was expecting Killzone Shadow fall or Knack or Infamous Second Son or even AAA game from first year that PS4 release but I wasn't expecting to be completely indie across all 3 systems. PlayStation should at least give one AAA with each line up but it doesn't mean that it have to been from this year or last year. For example Sleeping Dogs or Watch Dogs or something like that.
It's 5!!!$ a month you gready bs.
@Errorist76 is 10$ a month in NA. Anyway I pay PlayStation Plus ever since they started giving free games on PS3/PSVITA and I am not greedy since I am saying going Complete Indie isn't always good and they should at least offer old PS4 AAA games at least. So explain to me so PlayStation can get away charging $10 extra in exchange for nothing since PlayStation Network didn't have an improvement, didn't bring a huge update for PS4 that have missing features that supposed to have day one since PS3 have all those features, Plus title is not strong and mostly Complete Indie every month across PS4/PS3/PSVITA. I am paying $10 more for a better service while Xbox Live be getting good live games for a while and I am not saying give 4 AAA games a month but at least balance it out with one indie and an old AAA game.
@Kaneki-Ken you pay $10 a month for ps+?!?!? So you pay $120 a year for ps+?!?!? Hmmmm lies or you don't know how math works.....or both.
@oONinjavitiSOo when did I ever said I pay $10 a month. Last I remember, if you read my comments I mentioned it cost $10 for a month in North America and I said they charging $10 more from the $50 plus a year. So you can't read!?!? Where did I ever mention that I pay $10!?!? Trying to correct me!?!?Hmm mm so either you are dumb or you just can't read or both.
People also disliked when Rocket league came to PS plus on release and that turned out to be one of the best PS plus games ever. People still asking for knack... I actually like this game but come on, it's dirt cheap now.
Yeah but unfortunately not all indie are as good as rocket league. Many of the indie is the same type of style and not always bring something new to the table while rocket league was something new, fresh.
Which further makes the point that Sony should just include it as part of PS+ already. I mean it just got a PS Pro update. Why not give it away. Sorry to say that Sony's included games with PS+ jumped the shark awhile ago. I was a + member from it's inception. Supported them even when it was optional. It is hard to do though when you just can't help but feel like they are not even trying anymore.
Here is my idea and I want everyone to rally around it. If you don't prefer the selections on Plus then we should only have to pay HALF PRICE for plus which is $30 US. If you actually do like the selections then you can keep paying your $60. Give us REAL options Sony, please! Don't be like Microsoft and just muscle money out of us!
they could put out two highly rated, highly anticipated games that wouldn't release for another month, and people would still dislike it. People love to hate.
It's a strange thing. Is PS+ the same as it was for the first first year or two? No. It was a VIP type service and the games largely represented that. In this gen they have really cut back on the quality of games but PS+ is also no longer an elective premium/VIP service but one needed to play online. So, the cut back in game quality is understandable. For people that only have it for the games, it's become less valuable. People need to stop attacking people like this as we remember getting a RE5, TR, Just Cause 2, etc almost every month! Serious retail games almost every month in the premium service days. So, those of us that don't game online are absolutely getting less this gen. Yet, it's still not as bad as some let on. It's now a case of every other month being weak and they make up for it the next. Last month was garbage and January is solid. I think I had 12 ups and 17 down votes for simply stating that with zero complaining. "Last month was trash, this month is good. Can't wait to try these games with great reviews." gets the moronic "f*** off then!" crowd up in a tizzy. LOL. For some it is 100% fact that it's a service that lost a lot of value. Yet, it's insane to expect AAA titles every month. The "give us FF XV already!" crowd is just as illogical and annoying as those that think 3 mediocre indie titles is a good month.
No, but they would love to get TLOU Remastered, Knack, Until Dawn or even Bloodborne as a PSPlus game.
Yet another month of cheap Indies. War of Mine is a great game but it's The Little Ones standalone which is only $10. Day of the Tentacle is only $15. Sony has some balls jacking up the price while offering cheaper games.
Cheap games = great games Days Of The Tentacle and War Of Mine are great games.
You're missing the point. What was the point of jacking up the price of a vast majority of the "free" games are cheap indies?? They reason they gave us was providing better value for members. I doubt indies are charging a premium fee for their games.
do some of you have to defend Sony at all cost and at all time? The comments and downvotes in the Official PSN Blog and their YouTube channel said it all. The majority of PS4 gamers with Plus are not happy with what Sony is giving us. They jacked up the PS Plus subscription price for many of us and the least they can do is give us more than cheap indies on a monthly basis. Tired of this.
Just wow...how can anyone disagree to that?!
"...only $10" "...only $15" *Pays $5 for 'only' $25 worth of content* @keneki: no one is paying $120 a year for PS+...
Content that apparently many aren't happy with but are forced to pay for if they want to play online.
*NA Plus subscriber Pays $10 for "only" $25 worth of Content*
Yeesss! Didn't played War Of Mine. Huge recommendation for Days Of The Tentacle. I played old version on PC, but this remastered game is just better. And also Titan Souls is a stellar game.
Another month, another weak selection of PS4 titles. I was hoping the price increase would result in a few more AAA titles but it is the same indies again and again every month.
