PS Plus members get caught in Limbo for free on PS Vita photo
PS Plus members get caught in Limbo for free on PS Vita
by Brett Makedonski

One of my favorite experiences at a trade show was at E3 in 2010. I was set to have hands-on time with Limbo and time to chat with the guys at Playdead. However, they were less interested in talking about their game, and more interested in mocking me for dying. "That's a bear trap. You're not supposed to walk into that," they'd say a split-second after I already had.

PlayStation Plus members can sort of (not really) live that gratis starting today. Limbo is available for free on PS Vita for subscribers to the service. Just make sure to enlist someone to tell you that it's not wise to get stomped by the giant spider. It makes it all that much better.

PS+ PSA: Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe are free photo
PS+ PSA: Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe are free
by Steven Hansen

Tomorrow's Tuesday, which means today is Monday. I hate Mondays, am I right? But while your Monday is guaranteed to not get any better, well, Tuesday won't, either. Life is pretty bad. But at least you can download some free PlayStation Plus games while you suffer through it!

Free tomorrow are the criminally underrated Puppeteer (PS3) and the 'what else are you playing on your Vita?' Surge Deluxe.

Stick it to the man with two more free PlayStation Plus games photo
Stick it to the man with two more free PlayStation Plus games
by Steven Hansen

Tomorrow's Tuesday, which means more free games (you'll likely never play despite still paying for the service) for PlayStation Plus.

For PS4, we have Stick It to the Man, which I hear is real good and I like for its gross 90's cartoon art style.

On PS3, you can avoid giving EA more money for calcio -- soccer -- games and get PES 2014 instead. Simulate the world cup atmosphere by becoming aggressively nationalistic. Glare sidelong at anyone who appears to be from another country than you and start planning now for excuses for why your country was knocked out.
