PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita owners who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus are in for a treat in October: several free games are coming down the pipe, and many of them are must plays.
The free games in question are Resident Evil: Remaster and Transformers: Devastation, set for the PS4.
Mad Riders and From Dust will be released for the PS3, while Code: Realize - Guardian of Rebirth and Actual Sunlight are set for the PS Vita, accoding to the PS Blog.
Each game will become free by Oct. 3, which means the time to act is now, or before October comes around, for those who have yet to download the September freebies.
We're quite intrigued by these releases, especially Resident Evil, since Resident Evil 7 is on the horizon. If you've never played a Resident Evil game before, then the first game in the franchise is always the best place to begin.
It's a game that gives the true feeling of the Resident Evil before the release of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. One can only hope the new game brings back the scares and the solid storylines that are missing from previous titles.
Now, as for Transformers: Devastation, there's not much to say here. It's a game about robots going toe-to-toe. Press a button and things go boom, what's not to like? The shell shaded graphics is probably one of the best things about this game.
What about Mad Raiders? It's a great offroad racing game released initially for the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Windows. We haven't come across many offroad racers in a long time — unless we're talking about the Forza Horizon series of games for the Xbox and Windows 10.
When it comes down to From Dust, this is a game where the player takes on the role of a god. The player can alter the world in more ways than one, you know, just like any other game where the player becomes the god of his or her own little world.
As for the PS Vita games, they are decent enough and can be played on Windows. We have a special place for Actual Sunlight as it is an adventure game played from a top-down camera angle.
Sony is on a roll right now with the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. The newer system is designed to deliver 4K and HDR gaming. It will be out before Microsoft's Project Scorpio and cost only $399.
