As always, for PlayStation Plus users who don’t have a PS4 yet, be sure to log in at the PSN Webstore to get the games added to your collection so that you can download them once you do get one. Also, Sony announced that PS+ would be discontinuing both PS3 and PS Vita titles in March of 2019, so if you are relying on those through the services and don’t see the value in PS+ anymore you should look at what your options are.
I haven’t played Bloodborne yet, due to it’s punishing difficulty, but I am definitely looking forward to trying it and seeing why people are saying it’s one of the best PS4 exclusive. Ratchet & Clank was a treat on the PS4 back when released, and I liked it so much that I did four playthroughs to platinum it! Ceidz liked it as well so check out his thoughts!! Mighty No.9 definitely had its issues, but I will give it a try. Tracey liked Claire:Extended Cut, a phycological horror game. Finally, we have Bombing Busters, a game I thought was an okay Bomberman clone.
What are you looking forward to playing this month? Let us know in the comments below!
