Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

GAMES ON THE CHEAP has some pretty sweet picks for May 2017.

The standout of this solid list is my 2014 Game of the Year, Tales from the Borderlands (as part of the PlayStation Plus PS4 lineup). If you’ve listened to our VERSUS PLAYER podcast you’ve heard me talk about the style, humour and fun story that had me hooked the whole way through. I can’t recommend this game enough. And no, you don’t need to have played the Borderlands games before.

Getting the incredible INSIDE (one of my top three games of last year) as part of Humble Monthly is a nice get too.

Then there is the whole Xbox Games with Gold lineup. Great games all round, with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga being a fun game to play with your kids (check out our GAMING WITH THE KIDS: LEGO VIDEO GAMES article here).

Check out the full list below.
