PlayStation Plus

The PlayStation Plus games for November have been announced – and they, once again, may not tickle everyone’s fancy. The first game that’s up is The Chinese Room’s Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture – a very acclaimed game that’s set in the little English village of Shropshire.

It’s one of those “walking simulators” that’s beautifully constructed and features some of the most amazing music, but it just didn’t elicit the emotional response in me that it did for some others.

“Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture isn’t a game for everyone, and it certainly isn’t for me, though I wanted very much to love it,” I said when I reviewed it.

“Like Journey, it’s the sort of game that works as a sort of blank slate on which to project your own feelings of loneliness, loss, unease, and perhaps even peace – but as much as I tried, I found no such emotional connection. No sorrow, no joy…just nothing.”

But, and this is important, your mileage may vary.

The second bigger PS4 game is something called The Deadly Tower of Monsters a B-grade Sci Fi…thing.

“Have you ever wanted to play through your favorite sci-fi B-movie? Of course you have! That’s exactly what Atlus and ACE team have made with this game. Add in a clever director’s commentary and there’s a lot to enjoy about revisiting this cooky cult classic.”

Ps3 owners get decent games though – with Dirt 3 and Costume Quest 2 coming their way. On the Vita, players will get Letter Quest 2, the language RPG that’s a pretty fun diversion, and also Pumped BMX+. Letter Quest is cross buy with PS4, while BMX is cross buy with both PS4 and PS3. Something for everyone, I guess.

The full PlayStation Plus lineup:

  • Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, PS4
  • The Deadly Tower of Monsters, PS4
  • Dirt 3, PS3
  • Costume Quest 2, PS3
  • Letter Quest Remastered, PS Vita (Cross buy with PS4)
  • Pumped BMX+, PS Vita (Cross buy with PS4 and PS3)

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
