With the jumbo-sized Easter weekender having finally drawn to a close, it’s time for many of us to knuckle down and press on through whatever monotonous delights the rest of the week has in store. It’s not all bad news, however, especially with this month’s cluster of PlayStation Plus goodies waiting just around the corner.
- Pokémon Rumble World [3DS]
- Aaru’s Awakening [PS3 | PS4]
- Tower of Guns [PS3 | PS4]
- MonsterBag [PSV]
- Bastion [PS4]
- Element41 [PSV]
- Krinkle Krusher [PS3 | PS4 | PSV]
- Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones [PS3 | PS4 | PSV]
- Affordable Space Adventures [Wii U]
- Ride [XB1 | X360]
Kicking off this week’s slightly scaled back edition of OTW is an old favourite here at TSA Towers, finally arriving on PlayStation 4. Bastion, for those who don’t know, was the debut title from Transitor devs, Supergiant Games. Much like its recent successor, Bastion boasts a jaw-dropping art style that now looks even more stunning in 1080p on PS4. It may be approaching its fourth birthday yet Bastion still holds up remarkably well – it’s a must-buy for action RPG fanatics.
No doubt many of you are pining for this month’s line-up of free titles courtesy of PlayStation Plus. Again, this month, there’s a decent variety, catering for all three current Sony consoles. First off we have three newcomers, including MonsterBag for Vita as well as Tower of Guns and Aaru’s Awakening, both of which will appear on PS4 and PS3. Moving on we have underrated 2D platformer, Never Alone, as well as two bigger hits. These are, of course, Victorian-themed stealth ’em up, Dishonored, as well as Guerrilla’s polished portable shooter, Killzone Mercenary.
Rounding up this week’s roll call we have Ride finally touching down on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Developed Milestone S.r.l (the MotoGP guys), it is currently positioning itself as the Gran Turismo of motorbikes. Whether this comparison holds up, however, is another thing entirely, with Ride currently sitting on Metacritic average of 63.
