Titanfall Review
It's safe to say that Titanfall is the first highly-anticipated next gen (or should I say current gen) game for 2014.Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall received some huge hype at E3, and it was well deserved. Although the game is not perfect, it's heading in the r... [read more]

Playstation Plus members take on the forces of Middle Earth for free in latest update
Posted on February 05, 2013 by

Its the first Playstation Plus update of the month and Sony is kicking off the month of love with orcs, psychedelic spaceships, kung fu warriors and an underground world seemingly inspired by Metroid. First up is this month's free game, Guardians of Middle Earth.

 

 

Released back around the same week as The Hobbit in December 2012, Guardians of MIddle Earth is a MOBA game that features characters from LOTRs lore (both books and movies) and has them battle for the fate of Middle Earth. With the newest Guardian DLC Radagast the Brown coming soon, now would be a good time to jump on the MOBA train. 

 

 

The next three games are discounted. First up is the reimaging of the Apple II classic, Karateka. The evil warlord Akuma has once again kidnapped the princess, its up to three warriors to stand up and rescue her. Karateka will have a Plus discount of 50%, which brings the game from $9.99 to $5.

 

The next discounted game is Big Sky Infinity. Big Sky Infinity is a twint stick shooter from the indie developer Boss Baddie. Here players will fly their space ship deep into an alien armada and try to take them down. Unlike most shooters that have pre determined AI, it seems that the AI in Big Sky Infinity will actually adapt to your movements and will adjust itself to make the game harder. Big Sky Infinity will have a Plus discount of 40%, making it $5.99 for Plus members and $9.99 for non-members. It's also worth mentioning that the game is cross buy enabled, meaning that if you buy the PS3 version, you also get the Vita version. 

 

The last discounted game for Plus members is Knytt Underground. Knytt Underground, is a unique looking game to say the least. Its smile gameplay reminds me of Limbo, while its large underground labyrinth reminds me of Metroid. Knytt Underground will be 40% off for Plus members,which is $8.99 for members and $14.99 for non members. The game is also a cross buy, so buying the PS3 version will net you the Vita version. 

The Plus update seems to be on the light side this week, but with all of the major releases coming out already, its something most can look over.
