Ever feel like you don’t have enough time? Well, that’s by design in Sine Mora, where classic shoot-em-up mechanics (or shmup, if you like saying funny words) are blended with a new twist: you’re racing against the clock. Instead of scoring points, you’ll hunt down enemies to gain precious seconds and hopefully avoid the Game Over screen. PlayStation Plus members get the PS Vita version of this title for free starting tomorrow.
Put on a mask (did I mention they’re all animal heads and that each one has a different benefit?) and ‘take care’ of anyone your answering machine tells you to. Sure, it may sound a little crazy, but that’s part of Hotline Miami’s appeal. This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
Poker is one of the world’s most popular card games, so chances are you already know the rules of Texas Hold ‘Em and Omaha, which are the two gameplay types in Poker Night 2. The twist in Telltale’s version is that your opponents are memorable characters from other video games and movies like Borderlands’ ever-lovable jack-ass robot Claptrap, Ash from Army of Darkness and doggy detective Sam from the Sam & Max. Best of all, your dealer throughout the game is none other than Portal’s GLaDOS.
Those poor, poor Colossi. All they want is be left alone to wander majestically, but if you want to save your lady friend, you’re gonna have to bring them down. I know. Take a minute to prepare your mental state, and then make sure your hard drive is ready for this awesome game when it becomes free for PlayStation Plus members tomorrow.
Dive into the expansive realm of Kingdoms of Amalur, a fantasy tale penned by famed author R.A. Salvatore. There are plenty of options to customize your character and the way you defeat your foes, so role-playing fans will be right at home here.
You may remember that last month we added Team Ico’s original cult classic ICO to the IGC, so their equally beloved sequel Shadow of the Colossus seemed like a natural follow-up. Slaying the majestic Colossi should make you feel something (read: incredibly guilty), but hey, you gotta save your #1 girl, right?
Ubisoft Montpellier recently released Rayman Legends, a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Rayman Origins. An ever-charming, colorful platformer, Rayman Origins will get you reacquainted with the armless, legless hero who first appeared on the original PlayStation. Rayman is perfect on the PlayStation Vita, and PS Plus members will be able to experience this game for free when it enters the Instant Game Collection tomorrow.
I hope you’re ready to get hit right in the feels, because ICO joins the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection tomorrow. The classic title has been an industry favorite ever since its release, so if you haven’t had a chance to play it, you can finally learn what all the fuss was about.
