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. 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.
If you haven’t yet taken a dive into Destiny 2, now’s the time to do its big “Forsaken” expansion drops in a few days. God of War III Remastered gives players a chance to try a game they might have missed on PS3, although it is very different from the newer title in the series.
Tracey reviewed Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut on PS4 and you can tell from her review she really liked it. I had the chance to review Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition on PS4 and thought the game was pretty good considering it was 20 years old. Check out my review here.
Sparkle 2 looks like a Zuma style game, so you’ll have fun if you’re into that sort of thing. Foul Play looks like a fun release that could be great on Vita and PS4 – I generally trust Devolver Digital. Finally, Knowledge is Power is one of the Play Link games that let you use your phones as controllers, so be sure to give that one a go before it is removed from the PS+ list on November 6.
