December’s PS Plus games were announced today, and we think many people are going to be disappointed. For the last games of the year, they are a little anticlimactic, even if they aren’t exactly coal in your stocking. The top games for the PS4 are Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition and Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends.
Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition is the PS4 remastered version of the game with all the DLC. If you have not purchased it in a sale or played one of the multiple versions previously released, it is worth your time. It is not as good as the original, but there is plenty to enjoy. Death is different from War both in moves and personality, and you have a post-apocalyptic world with supernatural conflicts to resolve and monsters to kill.
Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends looks like Super Smash Bros. with characters from the Kung Fu Panda movies. Up to four people can fight, and those looking for a family game may be able to squeeze more value from the game than others.
If you want a little more, the free PSVR title Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is still able to be downloaded through January 2nd. Starting December 9th, you can play the Monster Hunter World Beta until December 12th and take out your wrath on the monsters in the Ancient Forest and Wildspire Waste. On December 12th, you can pick up a free bundle for Smite with gods, voices, and and skins.
Here are the rest of the games for the PS3 and PS Vita. We will be giving Xblaze Lost: Memories a try, since we are always up for another visual novel. The rest will be downloaded in 7-10 days by our glacial PS3 connection.
- Syberia Collection PS3
- Xblaze Lost: Memories, PS3
- Forma.8, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Wanted Corp, PS Vita
Let’s talk a bit. Are you disappointed by this month? Are you happy? With your backlog, does it matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and tell us what you think we should have received this month.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
