Games on the Cheap: May 2018

Games on the Cheap: May 2018

Games with Gold, PlayStation Plus, Humble Bundle and more

As an Aussie and someone who owns both a PS4 and Xbox One, this month’s Games on the Cheap offerings is a little bit down on previous months. The reason I feel this way is because us Aussies miss out on the Capcom X Sega Humble Bundle and because Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain (Xbox One) and Rayman Legends (PS4) have been offered for free in the past on competitors “freebie” service. That said, for anyone out there who only owns only one of the two platforms, these two games are up amongst the best games of their genres and definitely worth a play (I still play Rayman Legends every few weeks, years after its release).

Like I just mentioned, for those lucky enough to be able to access the Capcom X Sega Humble Bundle, it’s a no brainer. It has a whole bunch of games worth playing.

The game I’m looking forward to trying out the most is Vanquish, which is one of the Xbox Games with Gold backward compatibility offerings this month. Vanquish is a fast paced action game made from Platinum Games, the makers of the superb Bayonetta games.

I’m also keen to try out Beyond Two Souls over on the PS4. I loved Heavy Rain, although have heard very mixed things about Beyond Two Souls.
