It took a little longer than usual for Sony to share the selection this month, but we finally know which PS4, PS3 and PS Vita games will be free to download for PlayStation Plus members in March.
PlayStation 4 owners can download two great indie games this month — Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee — New ‘n’ Tasty! and Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Abe’s Oddysee is a remaster of one of the all time great platformers. It’s difficult, but worth a shot, especially to see the improved visuals. Valiant Hearts was said to be one of the most emotional games released last year, so unless you’re comfortable with your friends seeing you cry, maybe finish this one on your own.
On PlayStation 3, Papo & Yo and Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishment will be free to download. Papo & Yo is another indie game that won over a lot of gamers when it launched and Crimes & Punishment is one of the most surprisingly adequate Sherlock Holmes games in recent history. Both are worth checking out.
Finally, PS Vita owners can snag OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood and CounterSpy for free this month. If you haven’t read my review for CounterSpy, let me just say that it’s one of the slickest games I played in 2014. As for OlliOlli2, I downloaded it last night and forgot to set an alarm this morning. That should be praise enough.
And remember, all of these games are up on the PlayStation Store right now.
