PlayStation Plus is a weird beast. It’s necessary to in order to play with others online, so if you’re planning to jump into Destiny, Helldivers or Call of Duty, you probably already have it. As an added bonus, you get some free games each month, some of which are quite rad. This month has some absolutely excellent games, but not on my platform of choice.

That’s right, here’re the games that you can get for R0 in November with your PS+ subscription:

  • The Walking Dead Season 2 (PS4)
  • Magicka 2 (PS4)
  • Dragon Fin Soup (PS4, PS Vita, PS3)
  • Mass Effect 2 (PS3)
  • Beyond Good and Evil (PS3)
  • inviZimals (PS Vita)

The Walking Dead has won a ton of awards, and if you haven’t already played it, I’d highly recommend it. I loved the first season, and enjoyed what I managed to play of the second season, but my PC decided that all saves of season 2 were corrupted, even after deleting and reinstalling. Maybe now I’ll finally get to find out what happens next.

Dragon Fin Soup sounds interesting enough with this explanation:

Dragon Fin Soup is a tactical-action RPG with roguelike elements set in a twisted tongue-in-cheek fairytale world. Inspired by those ingredients, the game features a 2D top-down camera and fluid turn-based movement that allows you to set the pace.

Dragon Fin Soup seamlessly blends genres to create a fresh experience: half story-driven tactical RPG and half high-stakes roguelike, with a pinch of crass humor and a heaping helping of murder & madness set in a procedurally generated fantasy world.

I will definitely redeem the game, although it might just end up sitting in my backlog for a while until it grabs me enough to make me need to play it.

Read  PlayStation Plus games for November include Bound, Worms, and Rush of Blood

By far, the biggest draws for PS+ this month are Mass Effect 2 and Beyond Good and Evil. Unfortunately, both titles are only available on old generation consoles. However, if you still haven’t played them, you really must. Yes, dust off that PS3 and enjoy the glory of both titles so that you can share in my excitement for Mass Effect: Andromeda and share in my never ending frustration that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will probably never come.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

    I probably won’t look at any of these games until next year because Fallout, but i’m always happy to have good games waiting for me in the PSN backlog 🙂

    Haven’t played Beyond Good and Evil yet, and am very curious to see why the anticipation for a sequel (and disappointment when rumours are proven false) is near the level of HL3.

      • Hammersteyn

        Agreed, will play it sometime next year

    Sooooo Bleak, I loved beyond good and evil! Would love to play it again

    I was expecting some AAA for PS4 however not a bad line up at all to be honest! I absolutely adore the Walking Dead series and would recommend it to all, Magicka 2 actually is something I really want to play coop with my brother and friends so pretty excited it’s free the reviews are good and seem like a really fun game!

      I read something interesting the other day. (it was on the internet so it must be true, right). Maybe LG can dig deeper into this.

      In the past, Sony would gave the devs an amount per download. So when PSN got huge, this was no longer feasible.

      With the newer PSN+ deals, they give the devs a lump sum, often before the game is finished, so that lump sum effectively funds the completion of the game. (which is great for indies). Apparently this happened with Rocket League.

      So if Sony is going to be doing this more often, it means that a portion of our PSN subs is funding indie game dev, but it also means that AAA’s will be less likely.
