Who doesn’t love free games? This is the question that Sony asked themselves when coming up with their brilliant idea for an instant game collection as part of their PlayStation Plus program. So far, my hard drive is overflowing with good quality games that I paid no additional fee for, aside from my PS+ membership. This month, Sony has quite a few freebies in mind, but don’t fret if you’re not a member of their paid service, they’re even offering a few titles free of charge with or without PlayStation Plus.
Let’s start with the games the games that are going to be free at various points during the month with a PlayStation Plus membership:
Spec Ops: The Line – PS3
Going free tonight, this third-person shooter certainly has its moments. You can take that statement however you want and it will likely be true. There are moments in this game that make you want to throw down the controller in frustration and there are others that make you profoundly glad you pushed through. If you haven’t played through this game yet, it’s definitely worth trying out, especially when it’s free.
Joe Danger 2: The Movie – PS3
Coming later in the month, this game has you riding various vehicles through exciting movie-style environments. If you’ve played the original Joe Danger game, then you know how incredibly fun and overtly silly this game can be. Pair that with a metric ton of extras and you’ve got one game definitely worth downloading when it goes up on PS+.
The Cave – PS3
Double Fine and Ron Gilbert combine their witty and puzzling efforts to create this title that’s going free sometime in March. The game starts out by letting you choose three characters from a pool of seven and then you journey through a cave that explores a little bit about each of these people. The witty dialogue and brain-bending puzzles make this a must-play, especially at a price-point of zero.
Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention – PS Vita
Are your strategy RPGs just far too simple? Do you wish that you could travel inside your weapons to level them up? Do you like penguins who say “dood?” If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to download this title for your Vita when it goes live on PlayStation Plus this March.
Tekken 6 – PS Vita via PSP
If you’re a fighting game fan, then you’ve got to be familiar with the Tekken series. With a huge roster of crazy characters and some even crazier story-lines for them, this fighter is perfect for a mobile platform. Get it free on PlayStation Plus when it goes live sometime in March.
Additionally, there are a small selection of games, playable on the PS Vita, that are going up tonight for free. The best part, you don’t even need a PlayStation Plus account to get them. Here’s the breakdown of those games:
- Patchwork Heroes
- Wild Arms
What will all of you be picking up for free this month?
