THE GAMES:

Mercenary Kings (PS4)

Batman: Arkham City (P33)

Stealth Inc A Clone in the Dark (PS3-Cross Buy)

Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse(PS3)

Velocity Ultra (Vita)

Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD (Vita)

Seems like an okay month. Probably a good excuse for the holdouts to jump on Arkham City ahead of Arkham Knight's release later this year.

Pretty much the point of PSN+ ; games that you probably already played years ago

So far disappointed with the PS4 Plus selection, only game I've downloaded is Outlast.

Damn wish it were Arkham Asylum.

I'll definitely be grabbing Mercenary Kings. Arkham City is great but I picked it up on Steam long ago.

Yeah the PS4 selection hasn't been good besides Outlast which is freaking GEM of a game!

Really hoping the PS4 picks start getting better here. I had been hoping for the store to be close to as expansive as the PS3 store but it has been shit so far and left me disappointed..

Can't wait to try out Mercenary Kings. Is it going to have split screen?

#18 Posted by 06 (945 posts) -

No way! Mercenary kings releases on ps+, I was willing to pay full price for it, this just makes it so much better. Don't see how anyone can hate on ps+

#19 Posted by Nengo_Flow (10508 posts) -

Eh.... Never liked the Batman games, but I kinda getting hyped for Arkham Knight ever since that announcement trailer, so Im gonna try City even tho Knight is going to be really different. Free game cant complain, tho i still have like 10 games on my HDD from PSN+ that i still havent play, like Bio Infinite, Deus Ex , Tomb Raider, and a whole bunch of others.

Up to 4 player split screen (you can also mix local and online players) and drop in/out coop. Soo nice!

#21 Posted by 2Chalupas (5320 posts) -

Meh for Arkham City. Already played it. But that's fine as I have WAYYYY to many PSN+ retail games to catch up on anyway.

Another nice showing for Vita though, and I will probably at least play Castle of Illusion on my PS3.

#22 Edited by Xaero_Gravity (9520 posts) -

Heh, I was planing on buying Mercenary Kings anyways.

#23 Posted by misterpmedia (4481 posts) -

Think the EU got a better deal this time. Mercenary Kings has that Metal Slug goodness.

^No problem Matt. It wasn't totally wrong, though. Paolo is how you spell it in Spanish :)

I'm really happy they keep pushing newly released PS4 psn games every month. Hope this trend continues. If you haven't played Arkham City yet, this is the time. Amazing game, might give it a second playthrough. Was always curious about Pixeljunk so I'm happy to see that here, will give it a go :)

#35 Posted by CrashNBurn281 (448 posts) -

So far the only game on PS+ that I thought was descent was Outlast. Have no interest in indie games that look like they came from the SNES era. Call it shallow if you would like, but I bought a PS4 for next gen visuals, not something that could have come out 20 years ago.

#36 Edited by Blabadon (28447 posts) -

I knew buying PixelJunk and Velocity Ultra wasn't a good idea.

Anyways, I highly recommend Stealth Clone. That game is balls-out great and one of my favorite puzzlers ever. Funass 2D controls, inventive puzzles, not one dull level, and then someone got the balls to go "shit we should copy the exact feel of Mario jumping" which feels so good.

Arkham City is superb as we all know. Not my month I guess, but still good for those who haven't played the latter two mentioned.

#37 Posted by bobbetybob (19297 posts) -

Mercenary Kings looks fun. I have to say though, for all the fuss people make about PS+ it's not exactly amazing if you only own a PS4.

why would I buy it on steam then play the second on ps3? how about I get it on ps3 play it, play the second one on ps3 as well?

also 5 dollars isn't free.

#39 Edited by SolidTy (45928 posts) -

I have all those PS3 games, but Mickey and Stealth are fun. I'll check out the Vita games, I know Pixeljunk Monsters is fun, I beat the PS3 ages ago.

I was interested in Merc for PS4, so this works out great on that front. I love that PS+ keeps on giving PS4 gamers games to play even though the system is still so new. I know my Xbone gets jealous when she sees me spending time on PS4 as she spies on me with Kinect, but she doesn't put out like the PS4 does. Step it up Xbone honey, and give me Games for Gold on Xbone and I'll give you some more time too.

My Wii U I keep him in the corner with a dunce hat and feed him cheese. Stop being so needy!

Why would it matter? I don't think saves carry over, so it shouldn't matter what platform you play it on.

This. Plus, it's not like you are going to be playing the 4th game on the PS3. Also, $50 per year isn't free. It's more than $4 per month.

I had never heard of Mercenary King but it looks fun!

PSN+ is starting to lose it's value.

PS+ is starting to gain even more value.

Once the library builds up a bit they'll start renting AAA games instead of just indies. They'll probably start around July/August with like Knack and Need for Speed.

It's being described as Metal Slug/Contra meets Monster Hunter. There are even RPG elements like damage numbers and craftable weapons.

Also up to 4-player co-op, local or online or even mix-and-match.

Definitely worth a try for any old-school PS4 owner.

Yeah don't you need to still play City? Jump on that, dude. I had it on my 360 HDD, but that's upstate now. I'm downloading it.

Let's agree to disagree.
