We already know that the excellent, South-African made Freedom simulator Broforce is coming to the PlayStation Plus Instant Games Collection in March – thanks to your well-placed votes – but what else will PlayStation Plus subscribers be getting as part of their subscriptions in this new month?
The list isn’t bad at all, though the lack of big blockbuster AAA retail titles is likely to convince many that the Xbox offerings next month are superior.
Joining Broforce on the PlayStation 4 is the excellent and challenging 2D rogue-like shooter Galak-Z: The Dimension. It’s well worth playing.
On the PS3, you get The Last Guy, a sort of modern take on Pac Man that has you escaping a zombie infestation, using real-world maps of real-world cities. Joining that is one of my very favourite games ever, Super Stardust HD. It’s a twin-stick shooter from Housemarque, the chaps who brought you Resogun, arguably the best launch game for the PlayStation 4.
The PlayStation Vita, meanwhile, gets Reality Fighters – which is a load of hot garbage. It’s an augmented reality game that puts little fighters in to the real world. Have them fight on your desk, or your car dashboard, or your friend’s face – and have fun for about 5 minutes before you realise how terribly unfun it all is.
The other game hitting the Vita next month isFlame Over, another indie rogue-like that has you playing as a fireman.
Broforce and Galak-Z are the clear highlights next month. For comparison’s sake, the Xbox One is getting Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments and Lords of The Fallen. The Xbox 360 is getting Borderlands and Supreme Commander 2, both of which will be backwards compatible with the Xbox One as well.
