It’s October and it’s time for free games on PlayStation Plus

Fall is in the air. The leaves are changing, the nights are getting cooler, and it is time yet again to cash in on free games via PlayStation Plus! And the best part as that we are getting a crack at THREE games this month as opposed to the normal two games offered each month!

PS4 owners will get to enjoy the Metroidvania Dust: An Elysian Tail, arcade game Pix the Cat, and the platformer Spelunky, all of which are debuting this month. Pix the Cat is also available on the PS Vita and Spelunky is also available on PS3 and Vita. As a bonus this month, PS4 owners can grab the DriveClub PlayStation Plus Edition, which offers both online and offline access to 11 tracks of India and 10 cars for your garage.

PS3 owners get to play the awesome Batman: Arkham Asylum, RPG Rainbow Moon, and the recent Dungeons & Dragons rerelease of Chronicles of Mystara. PS Vita owners get a free copy of Rainbow Moon as well.

So be ready to start downloading October 7th. For more information, be sure to head over to the PlayStation Blog @ blog.us.playstation.com.

Free Updates For The Sims 4 Brings Star Wars Costumes Now, Pools Later

The Sims 4 might not have made the critical splash that EA and Maxis were hoping for (our review), but with some free updates, maybe it will warrant a second look from consumers. The first content pack is available now, with some seasonally appropriate inclusions.

October means Halloween, so Maxis is bringing your dead Sims back from the grave as ghosts. You can invite your dearly departed Simmed ones back into your house, with all their stats in place (and some new behaviors influenced by how they passed on). There’s even a chance you’ll be able to give them a second chance at wearing a meat suit. 

In celebration of the holiday, you’ll also get some Star Wars-themed costumes. You can dress up as Leia in her white gown, Luke in his X-Wing pilot uniform, Darth Vader, and Yoda.

There are also new eye colors, in case that’s something you’ve been looking for. And this is just the first of three free updates.

November brings pools back. December’s update will introduce new careers and rewards. We have no doubt that paid add-on content is coming, but it’s good to see EA start off by giving fans something free for their loyalty.

A Stunning Free Run Through An 8-bit Dream

This crazy parkour homage to classic 8-bit and arcade classics might look fake, but it's as real as they come. Take a journey through an imagined arcade scene with real actors.

Parkour expert Jason Paul races through a series of 8-bit maps and fights ninjas in this crazy stunt. It might look like it was shot in front of a green screen, but watch to the end of the video to find out the truth. The truth is out there, and it's only 2:10 minutes into this video.
