PS Plus May games include a revolution and loco gods of war

May, the worst month of the year. A 31-day period that has given birth to the most terrible human beings to ever walk the planet, whether they be sociopathic monsters in disguise or the month that Steve Urkel was born in. But enough about me dropping subtle cues for my upcoming birthday party which will have liberal amounts of alcohol and a jumping castle which can’t possibly be a terrible combination that will result in vomit being sprayed everywhere. Time for free games!

Or at least, games that come with a subscription to PS Plus. Sony has just announced the latest games that’ll be available with a PS Plus membership in May. Here’s the list of what you’ll be able to download, for gratis with PS Plus:

PS4:

  • Switch Galaxy Ultra
  • Table Top Racing: World Tour
  • Tropico 5

PS3:

  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
  • LocoRoco Cocoreccho!

PlayStation Vita:

I…have no idea what to say about any of those games. Tropico I’m familiar with, so I’m actually curious to see just how well it does with a console interface. The PS Vita is clearly getting the best game of the bunch however, with its own God of War title. Neat, something that will please the tens of people who still have one.

I’ve heard a few decent words uttered about Switch Galaxy Ultra, which looks like the bastard child of WipeOut and that one racing stage from the Battletoads NES game that was responsible for controller warranties being voided back in the 1990s. Otherwise,PS Plus this month is nothing to write home about, is it? Nothing to really justify dropping close to an entire grand on a subscription, something which Sony has been abysmal with lately.

Hopefully next month, there’ll be the kind of games available that are worth the price of admission. Hopefully.

    Some pretty good titles for May. If Table Top Racing is anything like Micro Machines, I will be ecstatic.

      Things were better on PS3, the tinfoil party accuses PS Now as the scapegoat for hogging all the AAA games

            If I bought PS+ at the full price I would be pissed.

            I got it at R560 last month. Probably some promotion.

    I though Tropico was the outright winner of the lot. Its an incredibly addictive, humorous and fun game. Works well on consoles too.

    PS4, the perfect console to own if you want to play indie, side-scrolling, non-taxing I can play this on my phone games. This is what you would think if you followed Sony’s PS+ offering or their big whoohaa every time something like Shovel Knight, Hotline Miami or Rogue Legacy got ported.
