Leak reveals Yakuza Kiwami as free PS Plus game for November

Somebody at Sony jumped the gun, as the November graphic was used temporarily on the PS Plus page promoting the free games subscribers will be able to download. Listed on the official PlayStation site are Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition and Yakuza Kiwami as November’s PS Plus free games. The graphic has since been pulled, but various sites and people on social media managed to save the graphic.

This is great news, as Yakuza is continuing to gain more and more fans and a free release of the remake of the original game is sure to bring in even more fans!

Yakuza 5 going free for PlayStation Plus users in August


Didn’t pick up Yakuza 5 when it launched late last year? Well, you might be in luck since Yakuza 5 is will be a free PlayStation Plus game for August. That means that the game will be free to download and play, as long as you are subscribed to PlayStation Plus. If you cancel PlayStation Plus, you will no longer have access to Yakuza 5.

But Yakuza 5 isn’t the only game going free in August, so are the following games:

  • Tricky Towers (PS4)
  • Rebel Galaxy (PS4)
  • Retro/Grade (PS3)
  • Patapon 3 (PS Vita)
  • Ultratron (PS Vita, PS3, PS4)

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you will know that I’m a huge fan of the Yakuza series and I even did a Yakuza 5 review which was mostly nothing but praise for the game. While I rather have people buy the full game when it was out, if you haven’t tried it I would highly suggest giving this a spin. If you like it, make sure to pre-order Yakuza 0 which is set to launch Januray 24, 2017. If we want SEGA to bring more Japanese focused games West, we have to start supporting these type of titles!

Castle of Illusion HD free to Playstation Plus members starting tomorrow

Castle of Illusion
is an HD ‘remake’ of the popular SEGA Genesis title Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse and if you haven’t picked this title up, you will soon be able to play it for free. US Playstation Plus subscribers will be able to download and play the game for free as long as they continue to pay for the service.

If you download the game before April 28th, you will also get a copy of the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive version for free as well (which used to be a pre-order bonus). The game will be added to Sony’s ‘Instant Collection’, meaning it will be free to download for a long time.

The Cave coming for free on Playstation Plus later this month


SEGA’s joint game with Double Fine Productions (Brutal Legends, Stacking) and Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island) will be free for Playstation Plus owners later this month. So if you already got a Playstation Plus account, this should be welcoming news to your ears. This is for US Playstation Plus members, Europeans are getting Mass Effect 3 and Dead or Alive 5 for free (so I don’t think they will be crying).

Don’t know if you’d like the game? Read our review! You know, we do those, right?
