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.
This is a pretty solid month. I was a little surprised to see Friday the 13th: The Game on the list for this month, as due to some legal rights issues with the movie franchise, they had to stop updating the game with the planned DLC. That being said, it did receive regular content updates after launch and should be a really good multiplayer experience for you.
I reviewed The Bridge and found it to be a unique puzzle game – give that a shot. Ceidz and EdEN did a double review of 2064: Read Only Memories and had a great time with the retro adventure game. RocketBirds 2 Looks like a great game to play on the PlaySation Vita on the go, and I can’t wait to try that. one!
Don’t forget that the PlayStation VR game “Here they Lie” is still free this month, and is the Play Link Game “Knowledge is Power.” Take advantage of those if you have not had the chance!
