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)

    Guess I’ll check the games out eventually but it’s underwhelming to say the least.

    I still need to pick up Octobers games. But Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture seems like a chill game.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this disappointed. What is this? MONKEY PORN?

      I think you lose access to your library after a while if you unsub. MS lets you keep the game forever if you unsub but PS Plus stipulates you don’t own them… unless something has changed which I haven’t picked up on.

        That’s effectively renting a game. No thanks

    I have wanted to play Everybody’s gone to the Rapture ever since it came out. Happy I don’t have to pay for it. If it is half as good as Ethan Carter then I will be happy.
