Sony Finally Has PS Plus Games That Don’t Suck For January, 2018
Deus Ex Mankind Divided

The January, 2018 line-up of PS Plus games for subscribers has been revealed. There’s a good line-up titles for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita users. There’s even a free game for PlayStation VR gamers as well.

The details were rolled out over on the PlayStation Blog by James Hallahan. The games for each respective system includes:

  • StarBlood Arena for PSVR
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for PS4
  • Batman: The Telltale Series for PS4
  • Sacred 3 for PS3
  • The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 for PS3
  • Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness for PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Uncanny Valley for PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)

VN fans were duly excited for getting Psycho-Pass for free, especially if it’s true Cross Buy-compatible with the PlayStation 4, since it’s one of the few PS Vita games that’s actually worth owning (then again, it’s one of the only few PS Vita games on the market).

Unlike the last few months, PS4 gamers are actually getting real games this time around, and not the lazy, SJW-laden titles that Sony has been keen on shoving down the throats of their audience like Mark Wahlberg being fed capitalist black gold in Three Kings.

Then again, I suppose the “SJW” moniker depends on how you view the newest Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, because some people weren’t fond of the augs being supplemented for illegal immigrants as a tale about xenophobia and aggressive immigration policies, feeling as if the game was espousing immigration apologia. Others thought that it hit a little too close to home and that its mirror of the real-life migrant crisis made it insensitive to the real-life plights of people caught in the cross-hairs of wars they didn’t create.

For some games it’s impossible to separate the play from the politics.

If you don’t want to have to deal with that kind of a headache, there’s the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series. It clearly wasn’t one of Telltale’s best, but I did like the relationship threads they setup between Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne, as well as how it all carried over into Batman: The Enemy Within. That was some top notch writing from Telltale; a rarity, I know.

You can look to get your hands on these games starting January 1st (or January 2nd in the case of StarBlood Arena) for the respective PlayStation devices.
