December is going to be very busy for this Hairy Ape. Not only will I be consuming copious amounts of booze and eating myself stupid, I will also be gaming like a MOFO.
Playstation have just announced that Batman: Arkham City will be available on PS Plus from 5th December for 4 weeks. I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t played it yet and if it’s as good as its predecessor, Arkham Asylum, it should be an awesome way to spend the holidays and 4 weeks should be plenty of time to complete it. Also out on 5th December for PS3 are LIMBO which is a puzzle platformer and Vanquish, the stunning sci-fi third person shooter.
On the Vita front, there are 3 release dates in December: On 19th the latest entry in the classic Mortal Kombat franchise is out. The shoot’em up Big Sky Infinity is out on the 12th and Knytt Underground, (another puzzle platformer), is out on the 21st. Not as exciting as the PS3 content but this is still pretty darn good.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – PS Plus is amazing value for money and Sony are obviously making it as attractive as possible for gamers. Before you ask, no I do not get paid by Sony for saying this stuff, this ape just loves getting games cheaply and for the cost of a PS Plus subscription, I’m practically stealing from Sony.
Check out the videos below for LIMBO and Mortal Kombat. LIMBO looks eerily fantastic and Mortal Kombat seems to have all the grittiness and style that it had when it was originally released 20 years ago, back when I was just a hairless chimp.
