It’s that time of month again folks — the time where Sony unveils its PlayStation Plus free games offering, and the internet has to make the hard choice of being content, or unimaginably angry. Spoilers: it’s raining pitchforks out there.
So what is Sony packing this month?
- Tricky Towers (PS4)
- Rebel Galaxy (PS4)
- Yakuza 5 (PS3)
- Retro/Grade (PS3)
- Patapon 3 (PS Vita)
- Ultratron (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)
Here is a pair of official descriptions for Rebel Galaxy and Tricky Towers (the two PS4 games on offer) provided by the PlayStation Blog:
“Tricky Towers: Tricky Towers is a physics-based puzzler that’s at its best when you’re competing against friends. With local and online multiplayer for two to four players, the game shines as you race to stack your tower while casting spells to disrupt your opponents. The gameplay is fast, fun, and addictive, as you’ll find yourself coming back for more. So gather your friends or join them online and enjoy the mayhem of Tricky Towers.
Rebel Galaxy: Suit up and take command in this space combat RPG from developer Double Damage. Take the helm of a massive destroyer as you make your reputation through trade, by being a work-for-hire mercenary or a swashbuckling pirate. In a procedurally generated universe, no two star systems are the same and there’s always something new to discover. So take the helm, prepare for battle, and have a blast with Rebel Galaxy.”
Good thing I’ll be subscapularis deep in No Man’s Sky this August, because this offering is pretty abysmal. Not completely abysmal — because of Yakuza 5 and Rebel Galaxy — but pretty abyssmal.
