PlayStation Plus has been back on a roll the last few months. The monthly titles added to the instant game collection have been great. Its carrying on this month with another set of 6 great titles for all 3 Sony platforms, available on Wednesday 8th April. Let's take a closer look.
The first videogame to be funded by actual inuits . Never Alone is a retelling of Alaskan folk tales, where you take control of the young inuit, Nuna and her loyal canine companion, Fox. The game is a highly atmospheric platforms with puzzle elements. It is a title I had been waiting to play and look forward to experience the world of the Inupiat tribe.
Tower of Guns
From thought provoking puzzler to guns, guns, guns! Tower of Guns is a retro styled first person shooter, that dispenses of the triviality of things like story and missions. Kill the bad guys and defeat the bosses. Simple! This in random levels and enemies and this tower should take a while to beat.
Dishonoured is the best stealth action game of the last generation and the game that the Thief reboot wanted to be. Dishonoured sees you take control of Corvo, protector of the empress. Framed for murder and on the run. Corporate takes the fight back to those who stole his life away and sets to assassinate the conspirators. What follows is a fantastic first person adventure of stealth, murder and mayhem (if you cannot avoid it). I have to admit that a return to Dunball is well over due. Maybe we might see Dishonoured 2 at Bethesda's Pre E3 show in June?
Aaru's Awakening is beautiful 2D platforms that has a hand drawn style. Taking control of titular creature, Aaru. Players have to traverse the levels using his two powers, teleportation and charging. I don't know much more about this game, but from the trailer it looks like it is worth a look at.
The last of the big AAA first party titles on the Vita and still one of the best showcases of what the little machine is truly capable of. Killzone Mercenary attempts to bring the full PlayStation 3 Killzone experience to the Vita and succeeds. Now with addition of offline Bot modes even multiplayer fun can be had where ever you may be. I am sure that a lot of Vita owners already have this, but if you are new to the system and haven't got around to picking this up. You are in for a treat! Great single player campaign and fantastic multiplayer. If only Sony still made game so this quality for the forgotten console.
When was the last time you played a videogame from a Chilean developer? Probably never, but not anymore as Monster bag comes straight out of Chile and onto the Vita. Another Platform puzzler, but a really cute and fascinating one, where you control a little monster on his quest to find his friend.
All in all its another bumper month for all PlayStation owners no matter what their console of choice is. Let's hope that the service can keep going at this quality next month.
PS: Also you can download Whoa Dave! for free as well, although it is not officially part of this month's Plus lineup.
