March PS+ games
- Bloodborne (PS4)
- Ratchet & Clank (PS4)
- Legend of Kay, PS3
- Mighty No. 9, PS3 (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Claire: Extended Cut, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
- Bombing Busters, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)

The big news is PS+ will no longer include PS Vita or PS3 games starting March 2019. You'll keep all the games you have, they're just not releasing any more. Sony told Polygon they won't be adding more PS4 games. The program will be just reduced to two games a month. It's still a reduction to me - look at the three games that are crossbuy with PS4 that won't exist in a year.

Ratchet & Clank was pleasant. There was a sale on NBA Live '18 to $4.50 and I've been playing way too much of it. It's not great.

Burnout Paradise is getting a re-release.

We got Knack last month, and my seven-year-old adores it.

I got the system update last night, and we got a 2TB drive for the PS Plus games. My son tore through Knack in about three weeks, and he just started Ratchet and Clank. I got Bloodborne, having never played it before.

I adore Far Cry 4. It's possibly my favorite game of all the times, so I have high-ish hopes for Far Cry 5.

I lasted about an hour in Bloodborne before I felt like I realized I couldn't devote that kind of time to a game like this.

April PS+ games

- Mad Max (PS4)
- TrackMania Turbo (PS4)
- In Space we Brawl, PS3
- Toy Home, PS3
- 99 Vidas, PS Vita
- Q*Bert Rebooted, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS3 and PS4)

Mad Max is not a pinnacle of gaming but it's remarkable addictive open world game. It also might have caused me to become slightly depressed. Slightly more depressed? Who's to say. (Possibly a licensed mental health expert.) Make sure you take a break from traversing the empty deserts of an apocalyptic future to interact with real people every so often.

I'm old enough to remember the original Q*Bert but never bought Rebooted because I heard it was terrible. Now I get to see how terrible it is for free!

The port of classic Q*Bert is pretty faithful. The new version makes you press a button with every jump which completely kills the flow. I get why they did it - you can jump in more directions - but still. Also the characters are 3D models but they move so slowly and awkwardly. I’m glad I got it for free just for the port, but won’t play it much.

I damn near played through it on The Deuce. It's fun enough, but the addition of the minigames are all that save it from mind numbing repetition. Run shoot run. The prison scene was boss though.
