I bailed on original release of Amalur due to other stuff at the time so willing to give this another chance with the re-release. The flippy/spinny combat with the circular blades was pretty fun iirc.

All three of those VR titles are good, but Saints & Sinners is especially good. Good month overall.

I'll definitely take free VR titles and Knockout City should have launched on PS+. Oh well, better late than never. Actually think I'll try that one out as the trailers looked fun.

I really need to stop picking these PSVR games up when they're on sale. Have both Walking Dead and Persistence but have to play them.

But really good offering after a couple of meh months.

Just a lil finicky
happy about the kingdoms one, but if i recall it becomes rather bloated and tiresome towards the end with the quest systems.

At least that's what i recall from a review i read many years ago.

Perhaps it was improved.

The VR offering is pretty decent, but is anyone else getting the feeling that PS Plus is starting to become a bit of a dumping ground for new releases that they don't have any confidence in?

I want high profile, older AAA titles I might not have played yet, thanks. Not brand new stuff that could well be shovelware.

While it is not an awesome game I did like Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning on PS3 but to be fair I will never play a remaster.
For these interested it is a solid game... it has a lot of fetch quests but it is like it was in PS3 era with semi-open world games.

Kingdoms of Amalur is something I've come close to buying a few times so I'm happy to finally being able to play that. I know that First Class Trouble is supposed to be really good although I don;t think it's for me.
Really happy that they keep giving away PSVR games, I don't own one but it seems very unlikely that I won't be getting PSVR 2 as soon as it's out. Didn't actually know anything about those PSVR games but all three of them have reviewed really well so that's promising. I do hope they continue to give out good quality PSVR games from time to time on to of the non PSVR games that you're supposed to get.

How's this work? These games stay in your library forever?
As long as you have a PS+ subscription, yes. They’ll keep them in you PS+ library though so if you were to miss a couple of moths/years all you need to do is to subscribe again and you’ll get access to them again.

But I can't access previous months releases right?
