October’s PS Plus Games Revealed

Sony has announced which games will be free for PS Plus subscribers starting on October 6th. The lineup goes as follows:

Super Meat Boy, PS4, PS Vita

Broken Age, PS4, PS Vita

Unmechanical: Extended, PS4, PS3

Chariot, PS3

KickBeat, PS3, PS Vita

Kung Fu Rabbit, PS3, PS Vita

Overall this is a solid list. The highlights are Super Meat Boy, a super hard fast paced platformer, and Broken Age, Tim Schafer’s latest point an click adventure. The less widely known games include: Unmechanical: Extended. Originally releasing on the iPhone, Unmechanical: Extended follows the journey of a helicopter trapped in strange and claustrophobic world.

On the PS3, Chariot has players assuming the roles of a princess and her suitor who have to transport their fathers’ casket through an arduous journey. KickBeat on the PS3 and PS Vita, combines the worlds of rhythm games and fighting games in a unique, new style of gameplay that has yet to be emulated. Finally, Kung Fu Rabbit is a 2D platformer available on the PS3 and PS Vita.

Personally, I think this list is very good. The reason I love Playstation Plus is because it introduces me to games that I never would have considered playing. It gives me an opportunity to flex my gaming muscles and try out genres that I may not be that knowledgeable of.

The only knock I have about this list is its lack of a horror title. With Halloween right around the corner, it is likely many gamers would be looking for a horror game to give them the heebie jeebies. I do not necessarily shame Sony for not giving us a AAA title such as The Evil Within, but it would have been nice to at least have a horror option for the Halloween season.

These games go live on October 6th! Be sure to grab September’s freebies before then!

WWE 2K16

2K Games Responds To WWE 2K16 Diva’s Controversy

Now that 2K Games have announced the entire 120 character roster for their upcoming wrestling game WWE 2K16, they have received criticism from fans because of a lack of new Divas in the game. The backlash was added to because of how many of the newer Divas have not been added to the game, and won’t be even in DLC, especially given the fact that some newer male wrestlers have been added to WWE 2K16‘s roster.

Now however, 2K Games have issued a statement on the matter. 2K Games have said that they tried to include some newer Divas, but they weren’t able to, writing on their website that:

“With our final roster reveal this past Monday, it was awesome seeing the excitement for The New Day, Enzo and Cass, Mikey Whipwreck, and more. But it was clear that some in the community are frustrated by the lack of the newer Divas added to the main WWE roster recently.

“We pushed as hard as we could to include Sasha Banks, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Bayley in WWE 2k16, but it simply did not work out for various reasons. While we are not divulging full details on WWE 2K16’s post-launch plans just yet, we can confirm that the Four Horsewomen will not be available as DLC.

“We are proud to have and built the largest WWE roster to date featuring the most Divas ever. The WWE 2K16 disc includes all of the Divas on the main roster at the time we locked it in (13 playable in total).

We all agree the Divas Revolution is great for business and look forward to celebrating the Divas even more in future WWE 2K titles.”

The WWE 2K16 release date is set for October 27 on Xbox One,Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. Those who preorder WWE 2K16 will receive two playable versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator from the popular action movies.
