Playstation Plus for January ’15

It’s that time again, a new month means new Playstation Plus goodies for members of the service. The last couple of months have been on the weak side for me personally, mainly because I either already owned a portion of the games or I wasn’t interested in them. This month looks to rectify that, and this is why I stay a member: for every bad month there will be months that make up for it. First, the video:

On PS4, there’s inFamous: First Light, which is a spin-off title of Second Son, and looks to be similar to that Festival of Blood spin-off that came out sometime inbetween inFamous and inFamous 2. It looks amazing graphically, but is probably more of the same. There’s also the Swapper, which is a puzzle platformer with a cloning gun that looks rather interesting. That one is cross platform for PS3 and Vita as well, so I’ll be able to check it out. Add First Light to my backlog of PS4 games for when I actually buy the system.

For PS3, aside from the aforementioned Swapper, is Prototype 2, which looks so much like inFamous it’s not even funny. I remember hearing many positive things about the original game, though I’m not sure if the sequel is better or worse. Either way, running around a city with super mutative powers sounds like a good time, even if I don’t take it very seriously. I have become a little bored with open world games, but I did really enjoy the inFamous series so I can’t see why I wouldn’t enjoy this one as well.

Next up is Duck Tales Remastered, which is a title that I’ve been meaning to pick up for far too long. I almost bought it a few times for PS3, but also almost bought it a time or two on Steam. I’m now glad that I didn’t, because now I’m getting it for free. This is my most anticipated game this month, because I loved the NES classic and remember spending many hours playing it, though I’m not sure if I ever beat it. I will rectify that soon enough.

For Vita, there’s the Duke Nukem Megaton edition, which wraps up the original Duke Nukem 3D with three expansion packs. This one is also supposed to be cross platform with the PS3, so I should also be able to check it out. I mean, I played the original back when it came out in the 90’s, but I like the nostalgia lane stuff. When I bought the Doom 3 BFG edition it came with the original two Doom games from the 90’s, and they were fun to play through again. This should be no different, and I don’t think I ever tried any of the expansions. Lastly, there’s a platformer called Whoa Dave! that looks pretty crappy. It’s supposed to have a PS4 version coming at a later date as well, but for now Vita owners can check it out. I don’t see it being something you’ll spend much time on.

So that’s it for this month, a pretty good month over all in my opinion. I’ll give more opinions on these games as I check them out.
