This month, PlayStation Plus members can download Towerfall Ascension and Strider on PlayStation 4
Lots of cool games. Never played any of the Dead Space games, I guess I'll start with the one they offer
Dang Heavy...Dead Space 3 is the worse one to start off with.
I feel like the series went from best to worst 1-2-3 lol
@Transported I feel the exact same way. It's shame because usually video game sequels get better (at least they are supposed too) but Dead Space literally got worse as it got further and further away from what made the original so fantastic. Part 3 for was just a former shell of what 1 was and I couldn't even make it to the end without returning it to Gamefly.
3 was definitely the worst. Had none of the creepy atmosphere the 1st one had. A great example of when catering to the casual market back fires.
Hell , even the one on iOS/Android is better than 3 .
Pretty much best to worst for Bioshock, Gears, and Mass Effect also.
Agreed with pretty much everyone. I'm adore the hell out of the original Dead Space. And even DS2 was incredible as well. DS3... killed it for me. I never even bothered to get platinum, let alone play it more than once. DS1 & 2; I've got 10+ playthroughs on each.
I platinumed the first one and almost did with the second one and to me the second one is the very best of them all. i only played DS3 demo but i dont think it can top DS2. i'll definitely DL it and try it but the demo with snow and daylight was a terrible set up for the franchise. TowerFall and Strider? Hell yeah!!
Dead Space 1 hit al the right notes, the latter games went the resident evil evolution route and began to focus more on action and blockbuster set peice elements and less on immersion and pacing. Such a shame :( I almost bought Strider several times in the last 3 months but always convinced myself to hold off. Delighted I did :D Just bought Valiant Hearts so that'll keep me busy until next tuesday :)
Dead Space 3 was definitely not as scary as the first, or as good as the second. It is more of an action game and much less of a horror game. But, it wasn't a terrible game and is certainly worth playing especially for free.
You can get DS 1&2 for cheap. I wouldn't pass them up! Dead Space>Resident Evil(new games anyways) IMO.
you can indeed compare DS to RE4 5 and 6 and DS1&2 ARE way better than any of these but by any mean you can compare DS to Code Veronica and before cause DS is no survival horror it's a TPS action game.
I would suggest playing the earlier ones, since Dead Space features a linear story (so you're going to be confused if you know nothing of the previous titles) and 3 was a departure from what we saw in 1 and to a lesser extent 2.
@xheavyx: don't start with 3. if you're going to play dead space, the only one you really need to play is the first one, and it's dirt cheap to buy.
"Lots of cool games. Never played any of the Dead Space games, I guess I'll start with the one they offer" How the hell do you get disagrees for a comment like that????? What the hell is there to disagree to?
Dead Space 3 is terrible, and you can tell why people are disagreeing by just reading the replies
Don't start off with the 3rd game, it was terrible! Number one was my favorite @Transported I completely agree with that @mikeslemonade I agree with that also
That's a pretty bad idea. Dead space 3 is the worst and you would have no idea whats going on because 1 and 2 are pretty crucial to the story.
Damn! I just bought Strider :( That's the thing with PS+. Sometimes you buy a game, and then very shortly after you could have got it free on PS+ haha. This has surprisingly not happened very often to me, actually. Probably because I don't buy that many downloadable games. But I was bored and I tried the Strider demo and it was so awesome I had to keep playing, so I bought it. Oh well.
Strider, Muramasa, Dead Space and Tower fall Ascension, can't wait to play those.Not so much the Dead Space but hey it's free.
its weird but ive been playing muramasa rebirth for the last week after seeing it free on ps+... did australia get something early for once?
Does Australia operate off the EU store? (Or maybe Asia?) EU's had Muramasa free for PS+ since the end of April it looks like. The list posted here is for North America, EU is getting the same list except LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes in place of NA's Muramasa.
that would probably be it. also muramasa rebirth is really addictive!
Nice update for me as I don't own any of these. Great month.
Was going to buy the two PS4 games when they came out, great there free now also Lego game for the Vita :D EDIT: Just realised this was a US article to avoid confusion here is what Europe are getting also Doki Doki Universe is cross play so 3 PS4 games this month ! Entering PS Plus: 2nd July: TowerFall Ascension 2nd July: Strider 2nd July: Dead Space 3 2nd July: Vessel 2nd July: LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes 2nd July: Doki Doki Universe
WOW and i was about to buy muramasa rebirth for PS vita and strider! hell yes
great feeling Ahoy 8D
Nothing I'll play personally. I guess DS3 is nice but I already got it from the humble ea bundle and I still haven't started it.
I put over 30 hours in muramasa, great game forgotten on the vita. Towerfall is great too
I have Muramasa for the wii so I never bought it for the Vita.I look forward to playing it again on the OLED screen.Plus I think it had a graphics upgrade didn't it?
It looks so much nicer on the Vita. Yes, graphics upgrade, plus that screen helps. I'm glad I just barely touched it on the Wii and saved it for the better version. Great game for a handheld system.
Muramasa is a must have for a Vita owner. About eight months ago, I spent a weekend hunting a sealed copy of this game on several local stores after playing the game on a friend's Vita. I spent a lot on gas, tolls and fast food (and on beers too, of course. No road trip is complete without a six pack of ur favorite elixir). And I can say I don't regret it at all. I was so desperate to get my hands on it that I didn't want to wait two days shipping on Amazon. Lol! Is awesome the game is coming for PS Plus. Now a lot of gamers can enjoy this great game for free.
Even if its free, I will buy the Blessing Of Amithaba edition. Vanillaware deserves my money. I bought the game on Wii and loved it and I will support Vanillaware with my money for future games equally beautiful and challenging.
Meh on the PS4 offerings. I understand the PS4 has only been out for 7 months and there isn't much out there for it yet, but I think we are due a full retail game about now. Maybe Knack or another launch title.
I expect a retail game at the end of the year. I still think it is too early.
There will always be those who complain because the FREE games we get arent of "good" enough or well known. If they give away a retail game this early it could cut future sales because of gamers that would hold back paying full price for a game because they think they might get it free in the near future with plus
Not free game, remember these are rentals chief,
@dancinsolo, no YOU remember CHIEF, their free forever
Tower Fall is said to be a blast to play with others and Strider is made by the same guy's the did the KI game for Xboxone and got great reviews.PSplus is only $50 a year at most so it's hard to be upset with 70 to 80 games a year and the sales on top of that.They could give us a quarter of that and we would still be getting more then our moneys worth.
You need to go buy one instead of waiting for one on ps+. Small games are big as retail games, I'm tired of people that says things like this no logic at all. Like the guys on ps blog saying we should get $5 compensation for games we already own.
a retail game would be nice, but I am very happy about tower fall. Besides just being a mini game, it has great multiplayer fun potential and was the only game I wanted from the ouyas exclusive games (remember, this android console experiment). @GamingSinceThe80s: you forget that there are many different types of gamers, and for some only or even less than a quarter of the free games by ps+ are of interest. For me PS+ is great, since I own a PS3 and Vita and once I get my PS4 I will have a handful of games to play from the beginning. If I would only own a PS4 however, and I was not into the likes of Strider and Towerfall, this would be a very disappointing update and one might question the 50bucks a year are appropriate.
Dead Space 3, Strider PS4, and Muramasa Rebirth???? *hyperventilates*
Happy to see Muramasa go free, since my former friend stole my copy, but sad to see the DLC is no longer on sale. I knew I should have bought it, but didn't think it was worth risking the money. Y_Y
Nothing I'll personally play kinda a bummer lol .
with ps+ it's amazing to own ps3, ps4 and ps vita :)
Pixel Junk Shooter Ultimate is pretty cool. This list is pretty damn good as well. I remember people scoffing at the idea of PS+ back in 2011. Not anymore.
There was a sale for Muramasa earlier, glad I didn't bite.
Already have Muramasa (bought the LE). I reccomend to give it a try for people who never play it.
Looking forward to Deadspace 3, woohoo. Really enjoyed number 2 via a previous PS+ some time back. Now for the third instalment, awesome thanks Sony.
Great month. No games that I own and I still want to play them all.
I'll be downloaded Strider and Towerfall for me PS4 and Marumasa for when/if I get a Playstation TV. I've been stacking up on Vita games for the past few months.
Awesome, hoping the EU update is close to this one :)
EU was already revealed and largely the same. 2nd July: TowerFall Ascension 2nd July: Strider 2nd July: Dead Space 3 2nd July: Vessel 2nd July: LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes 2nd July: Doki Doki Universe
Oh, didn't catch that. Thanks!
Finally something worth it on Vita. Played Muramasa on Wii. Getting it for Vita.
Funny, this game has been available since 2013, so why didn't you get it then if you were looking for games to play on Vita? I guess you just like to spam articles until they give you things for free.
I was talking PS Plus. I have FFX HD, Gravity Rush, Ragnarok Odyssey and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time. The past months of free games has been disappointing. I only had my Vita since Xmas eve 2013. All my 2013 purchases were 3DS, Wii U and X360 games.
Sony need to step there game up! they have changed it so each platform gets 2 games but the games themselves seem to be getting worse and worse every month!! I for one wanna see some classics or at least something decent ... Trine 2 was good last month but Sony already released that on ps-plus last year for ps3. Ill give Strider a download but other than that Sony can suck a dick.
Guess I can finally finish off the platinum for DS3.
I don't mean to hate. but I bought strider and towerfall when they came out to support the devs now I feel ripped off never gonna buy another indie game on psn again.
Looks like im finally going to play DS3 all the way. lol.
I remember dead space 1 traversing a little taking enemies out then going back to save, love non respawns games
Damn!!! . I find myself lazy everytime I enter PSN to buy Strider but thanks Sony you to make it easier for me.
practically the same as eu. towerfall ascension looks cool, shame its local multiplayer only. i doubt i would call 3 others round and buy 3 controllers to play this game. its probably a good idea on sonys end to give this game away to get others to buy control pads though :D strider looks cool. was going to buy it day one. glad i waited.
Yay more 2D side scrolling games for my next-gen console. Can we get ONE game that's a big title? Not everyone likes indie games. I actually hate indie games now because of the PS4.
Yes! Dead space 3! About time sony put something worth downloading, I didn't waste my time with the sport b.s.
another disappointing month ugh. ive regretted buying into PS+ since i got it in may. every game they have offered are games i already have on PC and i dont want to play them when i already have them or waste time downloading them again for no reason. I want to play games on playstation that i cant get anywhere else. ive gotten maybe 3 games if even that many from this program and that was in the first month. dead space 3 may be good but its on every platform
double post why u so slow N4G
