PS Plus Free Games – February 2016

Playstation Plus Games for February 2016

Each month, PS Plus subscribers are given access to a new batch of games for the PS4, PS3, and Vita. Although they aren’t yours “forever,” as long as you have an active PS Plus Subscription, access is unlimited. 2015 saw a wide variety of games released, with some months being major highlights over others. For example, in July, Rocket League was launched as a PS Plus game, and it is still a popular game with a large player base. As a side note, it was one of our GOTY contenders in 2015! (Check out part 2 of our premiere podcast episode for our top 10 games in 2015)

Since I completely skipped out on the PS3 (listen to our opening podcast episode to find out why), I’ve been able to enjoy the Uncharted series as a completely fresh game experience. Playing through these games felt like binge-watching a show on Netflix. I didn’t have to wait until the next season to find out what happens next!

These games really are unique from each other, so I’m breaking down my thoughts on each of them in separate posts. Check out my Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune reaction here. 

Now, let’s see how Among Thieves holds up…

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Nathan Drake has returned, and this time, he brought more variety to the gameplay! Uncharted 2 takes the formula established by its predecessor and improves on it in every way.

Reviewing The Uncharted Collection – Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune

During the last generation of game consoles, I focused my time on the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. I completely skipped out on the PS3 (listen to our opening podcast episode to find out why).

Here we are in 2016, and I finally own a Sony console again. I’m thrilled with the PS4, and I’m glad to see games from last generation get another shot at life on this system. I spent some time this holiday season playing through the widely-acclaimed Uncharted series, and it exceeded my expectations in nearly every way. Since each entry is a separate experience, let’s break it down game-by-game:
