May 2019's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed, and guess what? The leak from earlier today was bang on the money.
We absolutely adored Giant Sparrow's sophomore effort when we reviewed it a couple of years ago:
Giant Sparrow delivers beyond our expectations once again. A touching story about a tragically unlucky family hits all the right notes, making What Remains of Edith Finch a worthy successor to the studio's sublime The Unfinished Swan. A walking simulator with a smart delivery mechanism paints the picture of a family tree full of misfortune and sadness, but leaves room for some happiness and sunshine. Between the most realised home we've ever seen in a game, the incredible voice work, and the moving, intriguing story, this is the genre's new golden standard.
Overcooked wasn't quite lavished in the same praise, but we still deemed it a delicious co-op treat:
Aside from a few minor presentation and performance niggles, Overcooked is a wonderfully executed game, and is one of the best co-operative experiences in recent years. The simplicity of the controls and gameplay make it extremely accessible, while there is still plenty of challenge in the later, crazier kitchens. Working together effectively with a few buddies feels fantastic, and even when things get a bit heated, it's all part of the fun. If you're looking for a light-hearted couch co-op game, Overcooked should definitely be on your menu.
These are two great titles, but we don't think that they're going to be received all that well as PS Plus freebies. But maybe we're wrong? Let us know if you'll be playing either of these games in the comments section below.
