Sony’s PlayStation + service has offered games ranging from “pretty damn awful” (See my Review of Zombi from a while ago) to “pretty ok actually” (See my review of Furi from a while ago….i need the page views, ok). Personally, while I’ve kept adding the games to my library it has been a while since I’ve bothered to download and play any of them. Well, it seems like that might change next month as the two free games coming January are both pretty big names.
First up is “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided”. While i wasn’t as big on “Human Revolution” as most everyone else was but it wasn’t bad and i was very interested in seeing where the story went. While the game was pledged by controversy before it’s release (Which i wrote about….like i said, i need the page views) the reception upon launch was still rather positive.
The other game is Telltale’s Batman. This one i was a little worried about upon it’s original announcement, becuase i am so tired or “Mature” takes on Batman as they almost always turn him into a Frank Miller style violent sociopath that i find simply tiring. But from what I’ve heard that’s not what this does. I’m still not 100% sure i’m sold on the idea of Telltale doing a more action based franchise, but it is undoubtedly an interesting step for them to take.
All in all, it’s not a bad way to kick off the new year, especially for those who are going to be a little short on cash after the holidays….or just in general….god i hate being poor.
