PlayStation Plus in September: Grow Home, Super Time Force Ultra, Twisted Metal

Plus, La-Mulana EX, Xeodrifter and Teslagrad

The PlayStation Plus community has spoken, the votes have been counted and we can now reveal the game you have chosen to be part of your Monthly Games line-up is… Grow Home

We hope you’ve enjoyed the first Vote to Play campaign and we look forward to running it again in the future.

We’ve got lots of other goodies coming your way this month so let’s get straight into the games!

Grow Home (PS4)

Grow Home is the story of BUD, a Botanical Utility Droid sent on a mission across the galaxy to seek out a new species of flora to help oxygenate his home world. He finds the perfect specimen in the Star Plant. You’ll help the plant grow as you climb to the top. Along the way you’ll travel through a series of floating islands, crafting your own playground in the sky.

Super Time Force Ultra (PS4 and PS Vita)

Next on PS4 comes time-travelling, bullet-spraying, rocket-launching, explosion-filled platformer Super Time Force Ultra. Half the fun of STFU comes from controlling a cast of powerful, kooky and sometimes downright bizarre characters. The talented team at developer Capybara Games has already revealed that Shuhei Yoshida himself is playable but Shu didn’t come alone! In fact, he brought a few very close friends exclusively to PS4 and PS Vita. Make sure you check out this crazy cross buy extravaganza!

Twisted Metal (PS3)

The demented ringmaster known only as Calypso has returned to host another macabre circus of turbo-charged destruction and you are invited to compete! Join an infamous cast of characters including Sweet Tooth, Doll Face and The Preacher, and get behind the wheel of some of the most violent vehicles imaginable. Follow the dark and twisted stories of the tournament contestants in the cinematic single player game or take the madness online and compete in a variety of multiplayer modes.

Teslagrad (PS4 and PS3)

Next up, a 2D puzzle-platformer where electromagnetic powers are the key to discovering the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower. You play as a young boy who finds himself embroiled in a conspiracy involving a despotic king who has ruled with an iron fist for years. Armed with ancient Teslamancer technology and your own ingenuity and creativity, your path lies through the decrepit Tesla Tower and beyond.

La-Mulana EX (PS Vita)

A combination of classic 2D platforming, Metroidvania-style adventuring and challenging action gameplay, La-Mulana EX takes you deep into ancient ruins on a quest to discover not just valuable treasure, but the secret to life itself! Fight monsters, uncover clues, collect weapons, spring traps and battle huge bosses. But watch out! No-one who’s entered the ruins before has come out alive… can you succeed where others have failed?

Xeodrifter (PS4 and PS Vita)

Finally this month, Xeodrifter, a classic action-adventure game where you control an astronaut whose spaceship is damaged by an asteroid, and must visit four nearby planets in order to repair it.

In summary

Time force! Amazing! Great month just for that!

Finally, NES time for sony systems. Worst PS+ Line up of all time.

2.1

For me, as an (adult) PS4 owner, I don’t feel stimulated -_-

Carnivius_Prime 24 August, 2015 @ 17:54

For you perhaps. I was thinking it’s one of the best in a long time. A lot of fun games here.

I’m loving this line up. Just the long week wait ahead now. I played Twisted Metal back when it came out and although it didn’t look great it played just fine. I voted for Grow Home so over the moon about that. Super Ultra Time Force. . . .For FWEEEEEE???? Get out, Shut the front door.

Why, With this line-up I’m gonna have no time to sleep.

MGS V
Tearaway unfolded
Until Dawn
and a 2 week Vacation to Greece… Damn September is busy.

3.1

Greece? did you spend all your money on games or something???

Have fun here! :)

I’m looking forward to it CounterUAVbaby. Hopefully gonna find my way towards some of the God of War sites. . .Ahem I mean Mount Olympus, Isle of Crete. . .Maybe Athens but it doesn’t sound too friendly atm.

Well, the decline seems to be gaining pace. Nothing this month for me.

4.1

When the first line of this article is “The PlayStation Plus community has spoken”, do you not find it slightly ironic that the games on offer could never be described as crowd pleasers?

Time and time again there have been hundreds of comments decrying puzzle platformers and retro styled shooters, time and time again they have been ignored.

When a survey was undertaken some time back, puzzle games were by far the least requested genre for the IGC, yet we still get them.
What was the thought process behind securing Teslagrad for this month? I would be willing to bet that the percentage of people who are excited about it isn’t even two digits. It’s probably not a bad game, but I would certainly say it looks like filler at best.

Racing games garnered a similarly unenthusiastic response, yet here we have Twisted Metal. The ICP of racers. A Shocking choice.
Super Time Force looks like it may be moderately enjoyable, but why would I waste my time with MGSV around the corner, and The Tak...

I’m not saying that it should be AAA or nothing, but what I am saying is that if you can’t compete, then why bother? would it be easier to offer other content aside from games? How about getting rid of the dead wood and ending support for the PS3 and Vita, leaving the budget to obtaining higher quality PS4 titles?

Twisted Metal is literally not a racing game.

Re, thought process behind adding teslagrad

Dev 1. I doubt many people will buy our 2d game what with ps+ giving away so many similar titles.

Dev 2. We should have gone down that route and maybe recouped some of our expenses.

Dev 1. Ah well maybe next time.

PS+ rep. Not so fast guys, this is exactly the sort of cr.. quality title our customers would love and if they don’t well it’s not like we ever address any complaints. #4theshareho… #4theplayers.

Nice! I’m happy this month, don’t have any of them.. look forward to playing them all. Thanks! good to see Grow Home won!

Great games, can’t wait!

7

any big game sales coming up in sept?

8

It’s good to see that the price raise for PS+ is getting put to good use…

9

Too much pixel-art indies, but I’ll try it.

Absolutely unacceptable dross yet again.

PS+ has gone down the toilet in recent months.

11

Awesome. I want pretty much all of them, especially super time force!

Grow Home (PS4) – 75% on Metacritic
Super Time Force Ultra (PS4 and PS Vita) – 80% (for the PC version)
Twisted Metal (PS3) – 76%
Teslagrad (PS4 and PS3) – 78%
La-Mulana EX (PS Vita) – 76%
Xeodrifter (PS4 and PS Vita) – 75% (for the 3DS version)

Easy summary, there is nothing really good there, but nothing really bad either. Mediocrity, the new Plus Standard.

I guess that Sony offers GoW Ascension and Twisted Metal for the PS3, suggest that the end of the PS Plus support for that system is close. They share their own stuff for a final hurrah.

I might suggest to offer some RPGs or other genres for some diversity, but by now it’s a bit too obvious that any kind of suggestions and feedback falls on deaf ears.

Carnivius_Prime 24 August, 2015 @ 17:59
12.1

Reviews don’t mean anything to the individual. We all got different tastes and enjoy different kinds of games. I’d much rather play a good old fashioned platformer like La-Mulana than the tedious movie-wannabe Metal Gear Solid. Not even joking.

12.2

So you are saying everything below 9/10 is not a good game, just “mediocore”?
OMG what have we become?
What’s next? Only 10/10 games will be considered as good games?
Seriously, there is nothing under 7/10 on the list, 7/10 is a good game. 9 or higher is a great game.
You know what would be mediocore? 5/10. That’s mediocore. And maybe 6/10 too. Grow up kid…
A few years ago these scores actually meant something…

I wonder if there’ll ever be a month where not some guy appears to preach about the value(lessness) of reviews.

But alas, let’s repeat it for those people, as always:
You have your opinion, others have theirs’. And Metacritic represents the weighted average rating of people who actually played those games.
Thus ratings have a value. One that is probably slightly higher than all those “I hate this line up / Everything is awesome this month” comments.

Glad, I made the right decision. By the way, COD beta plays fine without the online paywall called PS+

14

Genuinely awful. With all the money being saved on this cheap tripe can you at least spend some of my monthly PS+ fee to get PSN to stop going down all the time?

Or remove the cap on download speed you seem to have.

15

A nice lineup, but can we please, please get an official comment ton the download speeds? Three months ago I could hit download on my PS+ games upon return from work and at least one of them would be ready by the time I have a shower and grab a beer. Now when I hit download I’m seeing 10-20 hours ETA, I could hit download the moment they’re live and still be wouldn’t be playing my new games same day.

I’m not expecting a fix overnight (even though all evidence points to a deliberate cap on the back end) but at the very least the problem needs to be acknowledged.

15.1

Something is definitely being throttled somewhere, I had thought it may have been my ISP using a cheap route but there have been a few people now complaint of the same issue in different countries. It makes digital purchases a tough sell.

16

I’ll get in on that STFU, despite being pixel-art (which is just happening too much to be stylistic these days) it looks pretty damn fun.

On the other hand, all the people that moan about getting pixelated games or games with no depth, clearly PS4 gamers don’t want that, given that we were given the choice of one of the games, and went for the seemingly shallow, platformer.

Community, especially the vocal complainers, you need to step up.

17

After a couple of months where I already owned every title on Plus, September more than makes up for my previous disappointment!

Super Time Force Ultra has been one of my most anticipated Vita games all year. Plus Grow Home and Xeodrifter. I’m over the moon :-)

One of the worst list of Ps+ Games ever. On Ps4, where are the AAA ??

Finka_Karfein 24 August, 2015 @ 18:50
18.1

In the shops and PSN? :P Give it some time and enjoy the pixel-art games. When they give people Knack, almost everybody will complain it’s 54/100 on metacritic or sth like that.

Although I’m for a full version of DriveClub for PS+. Why? Because their PS+ Edition delay was and full version debut was so pathetic we deserve some kind of compensation. Better than late PS+ Edition release. But I’m patient and just wait and enjoy those indies.

eoinoreilly24 24 August, 2015 @ 20:50
18.2

“When they give people Knack, almost everybody will complain it’s 54/100 on metacritic or sth like that.”

Well, yeah. Why would anyone be happy about getting a game they don’t want to play?

And please don’t say because it’s free. It’s not. Even with the huge increase of subscribers since it is required for online play on PS4, PS Plus has seen an increase in price and a decrease in the window in which the IGC games can be claimed (and no visible increase in the quality of service, in my opinion). Also, never forget that you have access to these games only when you are subscribed.

18.3

Finka_Karfein, it is you, who specifically deserve NO compensation for Driveclub. you did not spend a dime on it, it was never a PS+ seller (if you wanted PS+ just for that, chances are you waited), and an unreleased game is hardly a system seller. It is only people, who bought it at launch who deserves any compensation, as the game plummeted in price without delivering any early value. Nevertheless, it delivered a lot of improvement and season pass was probably the best DLC I have encountered ever, so no compensation is needed there. You are just sad it was not perfect and free from the start and there is no cure for that.

Is Super Time Force PSTV compatible?

19.1

Is anything!

I hope so, regardless im more than happy take it on the go with me on the vita, nice compatibility list by the way

Excellent line up. I was already going to buy some of these and hadn’t got around to buying the others yet. Gonna save me a nice chunk of money. This more than makes up for the past few months (where Rocket League was the only great game released on Plus).
Thanks very much. :D

21

I expected nothing, and I was still disappointed.

Excellent example of the only reason i still keep checking this blog: to read the wonderful comments. I really mean it. You nailed it. Hats off to you, mate!

22

I hope, with the price rise, that we start getting some AAA titles on ps4. PlayStation plus used to be great value for money but not now. If I didn’t have to keep it up to play online and backup my saves I wouldn’t bother with it anymore. I’ve been a subscriber for years now and it feels like I’m being ripped off. Most of my friends are gamers, some on Xbox and some on PlayStation, and me nor any of them are interested in 2D puzzle platformers or any of the other indie style games that are on offer every single month. I didn’t spend £350 on a console to play games that would run on my phone. I know there are a lot of people out there who do like those games but it just seems unfair that this is all PlayStation plus offers with the subscription fee when people like me pay the same and get nothing. All I’m saying is that there needs to be more diversity in what’s offered to your customers instead of favouring one group that enjoys the more obscure titles just because it costs you less...

22.1

Then buy games, you know, like normal people do.

22.2

I do buy games. And when I buy them I usually get good value for my money. All I’m saying is that PlayStation plus should be good value for money as well. Instead of forcing me to pay my subscription for online play and backup of my saves only. I’m not asking them to give me all the games I want for free. Just for them to give me a decent game every now and then to make my subscription feel worthwhile.

22.3

@misi2mezei

How about kids who can’t afford to pay for more than one game a month, if that? Should they have to put up with a decline in quality? I am lucky enough to be able to buy games on release, but I would rather see a good game I already owned on here than a bad one that I don’t. Your argument is that people shouldn’t voice an opinion you don’t agree with, even if it means the average consumer is worse off.
That’s a terrible point of view, get off your high horse.

So bad, so sad…

I3loodthirsty 24 August, 2015 @ 18:02

Wow thats all i can say………wow (and not in the good sense)

Utter dross, I’ll accept Grow Home as the populace have apparently spoken, but of the rest only Twisted Metal screams of any polish or quality.

2D platformers and pixel-art indie shovelware, cheap, lazy and not at all what was promised when most of us signed up for this service. At this point I’m only continuing to pay for PS+ for cloud saves, store discounts and the occasional title like Dragons Crown that’s still sitting on my Vita from way back when we used to get decent titles.

25.1

Yeah…. people “chose” grow home. It’s not so much that it’s an appealing looking game. Just less unappealing than the other two options.

And the people had a chance to get something remotely resembling an AAA (and starting with ‘A’).
They chose Grow Home, another pretendous ‘art’ game. Like, 100th in a row.

why all the indies sony ? except twisted metal all are just 2d stuff thats why i left plus .

madmanwithabox12 24 August, 2015 @ 20:05
26.1

Grow Home is 3D. Also 2D doesn’t equal bad. Some of the best games of all time are 2D: Symphony of the Night, Super Mario World, Super Metroid etc. And 2D games aren’t all the same either. Compare Metroid to Mario to Streets of Rage to Mortal Kombat to Gradius.

26.2

2D seems kind of out of place on a PS4 though.

No matter how good the game is, they’re just not a good fit. I have my Vita for “new” games like that – and I have older consoles for awesome 2D games.

Grow Home seems like one of those games you download, play for five minutes until you realize it’s utter crap and then never touch again. The taste of the uneducated masses will always vote for crap.
As for the rest? Twisted Metal is okay, but one badly censored mess in germany. Anything else, can’t really say. I’ve been around when games started being pixel-based (as opposed to text/ascii based), so it’s always quite off-putting to me to see it happen again. But who knows, I’ll try everything ‘cept the gross Grow Home.

27.1

But I’ve really grown tired of platformers and especially puzzle-platformers.

27.2

The uneducated masses dodged a bullet by not having to play that horrible looking zombie thing by those imbeciles behind the abhorrent Stick it to the Man, or a card game. The poll was like seeing where you’d like to get kicked. Face, legs, or nuts.

27.3

I would’ve preferred Armello. At least something different, with potential for replayability.

BLACKY-BlackNEkO 24 August, 2015 @ 18:11

Really? Why do we have to pay 4 this poor things. You even rised the 3 month subsciption.

X_Blood_Curse_X 24 August, 2015 @ 18:11
29

Pretty happy with this line up personally. Was hoping Grow Home wouldn’t take up a slot, but other than that thumbs up from me

Okay, but why did you have to buy a PS4 for that? Those games would run perfectly on a NES.

Calm down folks, you will get your AAA ps4 games on plus…

Around November/December when most people “have to” resubscribe PS+.

Tranquil-Fury 24 August, 2015 @ 18:13
31

5 2D platform games!!!!!!

I remember when ps+ gave us plenty of variety
We have already had at least 15 such games this year.

I used to be happy to pay for ps+ but given this years output I would happily forego the games and pay less just for online access.

madmanwithabox12 24 August, 2015 @ 20:07
31.1

???

Grow Home is 3D. Y’all don’t even look at the pictures or watch the videos.

Tranquil-Fury 24 August, 2015 @ 23:17
31.2

@madmanwithabox

4 2d platform games. I stand corrected.

9 games for about the same price as a pint. Cheers Sony!

totaldirkness 24 August, 2015 @ 18:31
32.1

I prefer the pint.

Nice try, Sony employee.
Where do you live? Pint is $0.5 where I live, and all this indie garbage can be obtained for $1 in humblebundle if you want Steam keys (or $0.01 for no DRM versions).

33

Can’t wait to play as Shu in Super Time Force Ultra :D
I hope we will get Shovel Knight too sometime.

34

Whyyyyyyyy? PS Plus prices rise and you offer us these kind of games? I love good indie games but COME ON! Enough is enough!

35

Jesus christ, and I thought the other previous months sucked (Except the month with Rocket League). This takes the price in The Worst PS+ Month. EVERRRRRR.

No, the one with Sports With Friends (only for Move owners) was the worst. But this one comes in real close.

Okay…good thing I have a huge backlog not to mention lots of hacking and a slashing my way through One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 and Onechanbara Z2. I need to surround myself in filth to wash off the god bothering from that Rapture game..the hubb bought it for me in hopes I would start convulsing and contorting ala Emily Rose (and I did). Bible verses in a game = god bothering

I hope we are getting Amnesia tomorrow or Wed….please tell me we are

36.1

Bible verses in Rapture? Now I doubt I should get it.

36.2

One of my fav indies so far, but definitely not for everyone. Amazing atmosphere.

36.3

I especially think I would like the atmosphere, but if there’s religious content I’d simply be appalled, and this is something I would have to know before I make a decision. I mean, there are are disclaimers warning of violent, drug related, sexual and whatnot content, so why not warn about religious content, too?

I’m so happy me Plus is almost expired, so I don’t have to be dissapointed every month. I can’t believe how bad PsPlus has gotten and why Playstation think it’s fair to raise te prices of this formaly great service. For people who don’t play online there and who don’t like Indy Pixel”art” there is absolutely nothing worth the price of a membership.

38

4 more pixel art platformers… yay I’m not tired of them yet

39

Let’s never have community vote on ps+ again. Feel like even more people Will end up dissapointed when the “wrong” game wins compared to when Sony picks the game. Oh, and the discount is weaker than i thought for the “losers” was expecting at least 50% off. Will wait for them to go on a proper sale like i do with all digital titles that interests me.

Grow Home (Steam, 9/10)
Super Time Force (Steam, 9/10)
La-Mulana (Steam, 9/10)

I got Black Flag for 20€ 1 year and a half ago, beat it and moved on. If they give us too generic AAA, there’ll be complaints too since those games have sold millions of copies already.

You know the greatest payback for all the haters is the fact your getting this ….and you hate it!

Haha look at you all so angry!

Its every month fun to read all the comments.Cant wait for the OCT line up. I bet you will see alot of the same peeps of this month complaining again. But thats cool pure entertainment :)

42.2

Talk about being a sore winner… You guys get the indies you want every month for years on end and still you somehow feel the need to mock us losers that aren’t alligned with your indie interests.. I don’t understand that.. It’s really petty. The least you can do is suffer through our complaints, preferably without the attitude.

Personally I think the line-up is quite decent game-wise, even though I already have two of the games (Teslagrad & La-Mulana EX) and I won’t be able to redeem the others (my subscription finally ends at the end of the month).

But still I think that the line-ups of the last few months were rather disappointing. Not because most of the games were indies, but due to the fact that the line-up seems rather unbalanced genre-wise. Nearly every month, the majority of the line-up seems to consist of puzzle-games and 2D-platformers.
A little more variety would be nice. That doesn’t mean that you should ignore these genres completely, but maybe switch them more often for more-favored genres like (3D) action-adventures, shooter (whether it’ 1st or 3rd-person), racing, sports or a (j)rpg one in a while and try to spread this variety over all platforms. E.g. the Vita got a shooter a few months ago (Killzone Mercenary), so why not try to give the PS4-people one, too?

And one small suggestion:
May...

And one small suggestion:
Maybe you could split PS+ up into several smaller services (e.g. PS4 online multiplayer, Cloud backup for savegames, instant game collection) and sell them separately with slightly higher fees per service or in the “all-in-one”-package with the price as of today. There are people that don’t care about the IGC and there are some that don’t care about multiplayer. These people would e.g. pay 20 euros per year (or let’s say 25 euros) and would only get the services they really cared for and others could subscribe to the all-in-package which we get now.

Great month for me. I’ll be playing Grow Home and Twisted Meal.
And MGS V comes out in the same day :D

45

Good games on offer. I’m not surprised the comments are full of crybaby peasants that are upset they’re not getting AAA games every month.

I’ll be enjoying these games while the casuals cry because they can’t afford to buy AAA games they want.

45.1

I’m not surprised to see that one smug crybaby crying over comments from up on his high horse again.. Atleast us peasants have something real (not to mention relevant) to complain about ;)

Good games, maybe. If you’re into (puzzle) platformers. Not everyone is that, y’know?

Yeah, sure this is a completly relevant problem to complain about.
I really hope you won’t have worse problems in your life…

Wasnt expecting this announcement so soon so that was a pleasant surprise. Then I read the line-up:-/
Still, I voted for Grow Home so looking forward to that. As for the rest, probably won’t bother. Had Super Time Force last year on XBL and deleted it after one play. So bored of these retro looking games, I can’t tell you. Its not that I want Next-Gen graphics all the time, but I don’t see the need for these pixelated graphics either! I bought Rare Replay on XBOne earlier this month, that is enough retro for me! Enough now!

They say, they want to offer variety with PS+ and yet i see 4 more pixel art indie platformers like every other month before it. lool

Just give up guys… you wont see or get the experience that you had with the PS3. I gave up on PS+ a long time ago wen it became a paywall. Just don’t subscribe again… I’m waiting for my to end in form of protest you should do the same.

Don’t forget it’ll automatically renew if you don’t unsubscribe yourself.

Rodrigo Sharigan: i gave up on ps+ since ps4 launch, i subbed for a couple of months here and there, when at least two games in a month would catch my eye. I just come here to have fun reading the comments but still, this is all a sad joke. On the good side, i’m glad i resumed pc gaming.

Makes sense to me to bro

Happy for Twisted Metal, Grow Home and La Mulana-EX. The rest are on play-later for indefinite amount of time.

I don’t care about the free monthly “games”, but dear Sony fix the godd*mn PSN servers and download speed. Thats all I want. Thank you!
