PlayStation LifeStyle PlayList: August 9 & 10, 2014 – PS Plus Edition

August 8, 2014Written by Chandler Wood


PlayStation Plus for August seems to have delighted many of the PSLS staff as they will be trying their hands at a variety of those titles this weekend. Rogue Legacy manages to make an appearance for the third week running, and can likely be assumed to have at least mild play time for the rest of the year. It’s also starting back in to review season, so many staff members are working to bring you their opinions on a variety of games. 

Here’s what everyone is playing this weekend:

Going to play some more Rogue Legacy while dining out with the fam and filling out that application for the old folk’s home. Yes, turning 33 ain’t pretty unless you’re me. Aside from that, maybe play some The Last of Us multiplayer and eat some cake!

Akiba’s Trip: Undead and Undressed.

My Vita is getting tons of playtime with reviews for games like Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1, as well as the new Plus titles for this month like Fez. D’yani and I will also try to squeeze in some time with Dragon’s Crown now that there will be a resurgence of players online, and some of our friends can finally play with us. And more Rogue Legacy please.

I’ll be reviewing Velocity 2X and Hohokum this weekend, and I’m also really excited to finally play Fez! I’ve been waiting for it to come to PlayStation consoles so I can play it ever since I saw Indie Game: The Movie.

Instead of playing video games over the weekend, I will be playing the part of a groomsman at my friend’s wedding, tuxedo and all.

With The Last of Us: Remastered finally having shown up, I’ll be bypassing the single-player and Left Behind and head straight to the multiplayer. It’s been many months since I last played The Last of Us, but if my skills held up, I should be dominating matches in no time.

With my new addiction to the crazy little guy called Fez, everything else is taking a back seat. Since it has cross save functionality between the PS4 and the Vita, I’ll even be taking him with me if we head out somewhere.

I’d say Watch Dogs, but the new free PS+ games Fez and Road Less Traveled are definitely calling my name…

I’ve just started playing Wolfenstein: The New Order. Finished one chapter, so far so good. The first thing I noticed was how accurate the shooting is. Absolutely love it. PS… registered my Doom beta code as well. Can’t wait for an announcement!

What will you be playing? Anything from August’s PS Plus offerings on your plate this weekend?
