We've already been given the full rundown of what software is joining the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members in North America this month. I was thrilled to see so many nods of approval for Binary Domain, by the way. This week's game is Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, which will be free for subscribers once the PS Store updates on Tuesday.
For everything it did right -- climbing on beasts and repeatedly stabbing them is and will always be good fun -- there were enough minor annoyances in Dragon's Dogma that I didn't stick with it. I'm still hoping to get back in there, but now that Dark Arisen is so easily accessible, I may as well start over in this expanded game. I have unfinished business with some wolves.
Beyond the PS Plus freebie, there are also some deals coming in with the store update. Most notably, there's Guacamelee! for $10.49 or $8.39 with a Plus account. This is a Cross-Buy title for PS3 and Vita, too. Highly recommend it, especially if you've got a co-op partner lined up.
