It’s that time of the month again! Sony have revealed the PlayStation plus line up for February 2017! 6 games are here for you to try this month which will be available to download from the Tuesday February 7th. Both Vita games are accessible on PS3 and PS4 so please stick even if you don’t have a vita.
We have a mixed bag for you this month. So as always lets check out the PS4 releases first.
Little Big Planet 3 heads up the month on PS4 and follows in the footsteps of the super enjoyable original. Sadly Media Molecule the development team who created the first Little Big Planet have been replaced by Sumo Digital who seem to miss the nuances that the series is renowned for but what they lack in originality is made up for in sheer scope and story. The narrative is suitable for the whole family and there are many references to films and video games. At its heart this is a platformer and the controls will annoy you regularly but if you need a hit of Sack boy for nostalgia purposes or you never really played Little Big Planet. Give this one a go. Current Meta critic score 79%.
Not a hero is our indie title which embraces retro graphics and colors. You play as Rabbit Bunny Lord who has travelled back in time from the year 2048 to be elected as mayor and save the world from alien invasion. Yep, this is one messed up game which does not take itself seriously in the slightest. This is a 2d cover shooter with 84 challenges to uncover. Metacritic has this one at 74%.
Before we jumped over to the PS3 please do us a favor and subscribe to help us reach more people. We’re a small channel with big ambitions but we need you to make that happen. Right lets get back to make free games.
The first title on PS3 is also available on PS4 and goes by the name Starwhal. Ok so I know what you’re gonna say, this looks terrible. Well it may not look great to many people it is surprisingly good when you get your friends round.
You play as 1 of 4 Narwhals, also known as the unicorn of the sea. The unicorn element is important, as the horn on your head is your weapon of choice. Pierce your friends through their Narwhal heart and be victorious. Go on, give it a go. I will if you will.
Next up is Anna: Extended edition on PS3. This is a psychological horror game originally released in 2012, set in a saw mill, of all places. Think of this like a poor mans Resident evil 7 and you’re half way there. For a 2012 game it has aged remarkably well and the story is linked to amnesia so new information pops up regularly and makes you rethink your actions. There are many many endings to this game so go crazy. Steam users gave this 6/10.
The hidden gem that is the vita has 2 further games for us this month and both of these titles are playable on PS4 and Ps3.
First up is Ninja Senki DX a platformer in the style of megaman. It’s the typical story of boy meets girl, girl is killed by demon, boy vows revenge. What you see is definitely what you get, so is this for you? Please let me know in the comments below.
And final yet another crossbuy title in the shape of Torque L. What the heck can I say about this one? You know what, I’m not going to say anything and let you take in those fine graphics.
