Happy Thanksgiving! Are you ready for more information about free games? If so, you have come to the right place! The PlayStation Blog has announced all of the new content coming to North American PlayStation Plus subscribers for the month of December.
The biggest title this month is easily Borderlands 2 for the PlayStation 3. This game blends RPG elements into the first person shooter genre along with the never-ending search for loot to make one great experience! While not surprising, it is worth noting that there are no offerings for the recently released PlayStation 4. I can only imagine this is due to the relatively small library of titles currently available for the system.
Sony has not announced which week subscribers will be receiving the games, but you can expect to receive a new one on a weekly basis as always. Sony was also quick to point out that one year subscriptions to PlayStation Plus will be on sale for $29.99 on Black Friday which is a great deal as it regularly retails for $49.99.

With all the hype around the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, one delightful and important game might be getting lost in the shuffle. Tearaway from Media Molecule, the studio that brought you LittleBigPlanet, has just landed on the PlayStation Vita. Having had a chance to play it at E3, I can absolutely confirm that the game is an absolute delight and all the outstanding reviews it’s been receiving are well justified. Right off the bat, it’s quite clear that, with games like Tearaway and LittleBigPlanet, Media Molecule is a different type of game company. The video after the jump is designed to give you a quick glimpse at how this first party studio functions and what makes them unique.
Nearing the end of my time with A-Men 2, my PlayStation Vita was kind enough to inform me of two stats:
1. captubaplayer (My PlayStation Network ID feel free to add me!) spent in total over 20 hours playing!
2. captubaplayer died in total 200 times trying to beat records in A-men 2!
These two facts serve to illustrate my time with the puzzle platformer A-Men 2 which is a follow-up to the PlayStation Vita launch title A-Men. According to the developer, Bloober Team, A-Men 2 is “arguably the most punishing game on PSN and Vita to date”. While I am not sure I can agree with that assessment, I will say that this it is a very challenging (oftentimes frustrating) game to work your way through. Does this level of difficulty still lend to an enjoyable experience? Keep reading to find out and see our complete review.
