Lgndary Thoughts - February's PS Plus Lineup

Happy Friday everyone! The month of February has just started and with it comes a new batch of Playstation Plus games. Unlike last month, however, I am not going to forget to write about the new games. So welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

For those that missed it, here is February’s lineup:

  • Knack, PS4
  • Rime, PS4
  • Spelunker HD, PS3
  • Mugen Souls Z, PS3
  • Exiles End, PS Vita
  • Grand Kingdom, PS Vita (Also available on PS4)

Starting with Rime. Personally, I’m pretty excited that Rime is included in this month’s lineup. I have been interested in the game since it was first announced, and couldn’t wait to play it. That is, until it launched. Initially, I didn’t pick it up when it first released because I was waiting on the Switch version. But when that released I heard it didn’t run so well on the Switch, and that a lot of problems weren’t even exclusive to the system. Despite the issues that apparently were present in some form on every console, I still wanted to try the game. Enter PS Plus! Now I get to play the game without having to buy it separately. That way, if I don’t enjoy it for any reason, performance issues or otherwise, I wont be too upset. Something I think PS Plus games are perfect for. 

Moving on to Knack. I actually have Knack, and have had it since the PS4 launched. But I am still very happy that it is apart of PS Plus this month. I have talked about this game on the site in the past, but I don’t mind saying it again. Knack is not a bad game. Knack is actually a pretty good game, and one that I enjoyed a lot. The reason it has such a bad rap is back when the PS4 was about to launch, the press was given a very limited amount of time with each launch title, and could only play them for a few minutes before having to go off and write a review. And when you play Knack on easy mode, for 20 minutes, it is easy to think it is a bad game. That is why the reviews were bad, and everyone else kind of went with it. This is something that still bugs me to this day. 

But if you play it on a higher difficulty setting, and actually give it a chance, I think most people will enjoy the hell out of it just like I did. That is why I am stoked that so many people are going to have the chance to play it, and see for themselves that it isn’t as bad as so many people made it out to be. 

All in all, there isn’t anything this month that I am just sitting on the edge of my seat to play. But I am still very satisfied with the lineup. I get to play something that was on my radar, but didn’t want to risk money on, and a lot of people will get to play something that they heard was awful. 

But what do you think? Are you still happy with the direction PS Plus has been moving in? Or do you think Sony could do better? Let me know in the comments below!

Games: Knack, Rime


I’m actually happy with both games, I have neither and having been wanting to give RIME a try. It’s probably a good free PS+ game. ‘Cause while I do agree the Switch would be nice for it, I think it was this week the developer had pointed out that the myarid problems in the Switch version need a patch that may actually be rejected by Nintendo due to the amount of memory space it requires. So most likely PS4 is probably the best way to play it. And hey, it’s free.
