Thomas Was Alone up on PS3 and PS Vita with DLC

Demon's Souls headed to PS Plus Instant Game Collection
by Jordan Devore

Looking ahead at this month's schedule for PlayStation Plus, we're off to a good start with the arrival of Demon's Souls in the Instant Game Collection on Tuesday. If you happen to be a member, there are officially no more excuses to put off at least attempting to play this oft-talked-about title.

For discounts this week, it's The Walking Dead ($10.49 for the full season; $2.99 for individual episodes), various Rainbow Moon bundles (the core game will be down to $7.99), and even more Söldner-X bundles ($3.99 for Final Prototype; $3.19 for Himmelsstürmer). These titles are also going to be discounted for non-Plus members, though not to the same extent.

Later on in April, Plus will get Malicious, Labyrinth Legends, SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny, and Zombie Tycoon 2 as freebies as well.

PlayStation Plus offers up free Guardians of Middle-earth photo
PlayStation Plus offers up free Guardians of Middle-earth
by Jordan Devore

Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members can nab Monolith's console-exclusive MOBA, Guardians of Middle-Earth, for free. A less-than-active community made it difficult for me to play the Xbox Live Arcade version not long after launch, and I have to imagine things aren't much different here. Hopefully the promo will give the game a nice boost, because it really is worth checking out for a few hours. (And possibly many, many more.)

Rounding out the list, Plus subscribers can also save on the remake of Karateka ($5.00), a procedurally-generated shoot-'em-up called Big Sky Infinity with PS3/Vita cross-buy functionality ($5.99), and the exploration-centric Knytt Underground ($5.00).

Review: Jet Set Radio photo
Review: Jet Set Radio
by Ian Bonds

Oh, the late 90s/early 2000s. In-line skating, graffiti, techno-infused Japanese pop, and the Sega Dreamcast ruled my life, in and out of gaming. It was a better time, a simpler time. However, nostalgia can be a funny thing. What was a fond, fun memory once before may not hold up as well almost 12 years later. For example, I was never good at in-line skating, and I'm still pretty terrible at it now.

The same can be said for a lot of things. Is the new HD re-release of Jet Set Radio one of those?
