PlayStation Plus Welcomes Titles For Last-Gen And New-Gen This Week

This week’s Instant Game Collection will see two new additions when the PlayStation Store updates on Tuesday. Joining the party are a brand new horror title and one of last year’s standout shooters.

PlayStation 4 owners will have access to the fright-filled Outlast (our review). Red Barrels has found success on PC, and is bringing the terror of exploring Mount Massive Asylum to console.

PlayStation 3 Plus members will be getting Metro: Last Light (our review). 4A Games’ sequel to Metro 2033 returns players to the post-nuclear Russian underground. 

Today is your last chance to pick up Don’t Starve on PlayStation 4 and DMC: Devil May Cry on PlayStation 3 before they rotate off the service. This week also marks your last chance to nab Shadow of the Colossus HD for PlayStation 3. For the rest of what to expect this month, check out our previous coverage.

Our Take
This is a strong start to the month, and Sony is knocking it out of the park giving PS4 users new games in the Instant Game Collection. I’m looking forward to trying Outlast, but given my aversion to nightmares, I’m not sure how far I’ll get.

Injustice: Gods Among Us welcomes Martian Manhunter next week

Injustice Gods Among Us welcomes Martian Manhunter next week

He’s Martian, he hunts men, and he’s coming to Injustice: Gods Among Us next week. The game’s fifth DLC character has a date with PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace on Tuesday, July 30, so says the game’s official Facebook page.

Martian Manhunter, AKA the equally brilliant moniker of J’onn J’onzz, was revealed as the first of the non-season-pass characters at EVO 2013 earlier this month. There’s no news on a price – the preceding four newbies were priced $ 5/400 MSP – or when Wii U players can expect their portion of Martian.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon welcomes you to the retro party

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon welcomes you to the retro party

If Far Cry 3‘s grim tale of survival was a poor fit for the game’s exotic, often preposterous antics, there are no such fears for its seemingly disconnected spin-off. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is nothing short of ridiculous, and deliberately so. Ubisoft’s standalone shooter celebrates the endearingly excessive sci-fi action of a bygone era in entertainment, when men wore cyber-armor over cyber-arms and when eyes glowed red.

An animated introduction transports us to the post-apocalyptic near future… of 2007. Our new cyborg hero is sent to an island to take out a rogue terrorist group – full of evil cyborgs. The intro has music so pungent of Terminator 2 that I half expect it to tell me it’ll be back, and the first 10 or so minutes are filled with references to sci-fi and action movies from in and around the 1980s. Blood Dragon pays homage to an era full of sci-fi missteps and overblown heroes exuding machismo.

The Cave welcomes visitors beginning Jan. 22

Double Fine’s The Cave is set for exploration starting January 22 on PlayStation Network and Wii U, designer Ron Gilbert revealed today. The XBLA and Steam versions will follow one day later. “Plus … Mac and Linux on Steam Play!!” Gilbert noted, which means the Steam release will not be PC only.

The Cave puts player-chosen three-character parties into a strange, animate cave that speaks as you explore it. We assume solving the mysteries within isn’t as simple as just asking the cave what its deal is.
