The PlayStation 4 will be available to some very lucky people this month, and if you are a PlayStation Plus member you’ll be even luckier. In addition to normal access to a few PS3 and PS Vita games for free, PS Plus members will have the opportunity to download two PS4 games once the system hits shelves (November 15th): Resogun and Contrast.
Resogun is a side-scrolling shooter developed by Housemarque (of Super StarDust fame). Prepare to utilize all the lasers, missles, and bombs at your disposal to take down evil aliens and rescue survivors on multiple colonies. Contrast is a vaudevillian puzzle/platformer, and is studio Compulsion Games’ first release. According to the description, you play as a little girl’s imaginary friend who can transverse from the 3D world into the 2D shadow-world around you. The game takes place in a 1920’s background, and has a film noir look to it. While not AAA games, these look like they will be a lot of fun, and certainly worth the membership.
For those of us who weren’t able to get our hands on a pre-order, there are a number of PS3 and PS Vita games available for free this month, as well. First up, we have Capcom’s RPG, Dragon Dogma: Dark Arisen. A little over a year old, the game was generally well-received and gives us the option to be one of a number of different classes and explore a rich, open-world fantasy setting while utilizing specific tactics to take down enemies. Also on the list of games that will be released some time this month are Ibb and Obb (PS3), Binary Domain (PS3), Soul Sacrifice (Vita), and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath (Vita).
