PlayStation Plus Free Games August 2022

Having a hard time adjusting to the summer heat? Maybe you’re better off staying in a nice air-conditioned room, while playing some free games. So, here is the next line-up of PlayStation Plus free games August 2022 available for download on Tuesday, August 2.

First, for both the PS4 and PS5, there’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Released in 2020, the game is the 8th in the Yakuza series, though is unique in that it plays as a turn-based RPG, and introduces the new character Ichiban Kasuga who had been betrayed and incarcerated for 18 years.

Also, for both the PS4 and PS5, is Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2. First released in 2020, the game is a combined remaster of the first two skateboarding games in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series nearly 20 years ago.

Lastly, for the PS4, there’s the platforming puzzle horror, Little Nightmares. First released five years ago, the story follows a girl named Six who must escape from the maw which is home to horrible creatures.

Among the PlayStation Plus free games August 2022, only Little Nightmares does not have a Platinum trophy to unlock.

The Platinum for Yakuza: Like a Dragon is the easier of the two, being a turn-based RPG. However, there is a lot of grinding involved, so be prepared to spend around 80 hours of gameplay.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 can be quite challenging for anyone new to the series, but of average difficulty for those who are familiar with the series. Either way, the Platinum for this game will also require some grinding and around 70-90 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.

Unlocking 100% of the trophies for Little Nightmares is not particularly difficult if you are following a guide, and can be achieved in under five hours.

Tokyo Game Show 2019 Highlights

Just two days after a typhoon ripped through the area, game developers, distributors, gamers, and otaku alike filed into the Makuhari Messe Convention Center just outside of Tokyo, to attend the Tokyo Game Show 2019. While there were slightly fewer companies attending this year, TGS 2019 did see a new record of 2,417 booths (2,338 last year) which means plenty of games to try, and things to see.

The largest promotional event was Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, being shown-off at both the Sony PlayStation and Square Enix booth. The original Final Fantasy VII was released on the PlayStation One in 1997, and is arguable one of the most beloved titles in the series. Visitors at the Sony booth could have their picture taken while wielding Cloud Strife’s massive sword.

The other big title this year was Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, which is actually a game in itself than simply an expansion. While Sony had playable demos of the game, the Capcom booth displayed life-sized monsters. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was released last week.

This year, SEGA combined their booth with their subsidiary Atlas, promoting the upcoming Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Persona 5 Royal, both for the PS4, as well as the Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games for the Nintendo Switch. Other titles included the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva MegaMix for the Switch, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the PS4, as well as games in their SEGA Partners division including Granblue Fantasy: Versus, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Shenmue III, and Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order.

Konami continues to make its comeback with such upcoming titles as Contra: Rogue Corps, and Super Bomberman R. Though most of their efforts are being put into the mobile gaming market, with such playable games as Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, Dance Dance Revolution, and Beat Mania II DX.

Due to the lack of room, this year saw a lot less arcade-targeted VR titles, and more home oriented ones, including the dancing game Space Channel 5, and a meteor shooting game by students at Kobe Denshi College. Also, with over 4 million units sold, Sony is far from giving up on their PlayStation VR, with such playable games as Marvel’s Iron Man VR, Concrete Genie, and a new Hatsune Miku VR game.

One of the cooler VR accessories I saw were the Cybershoes by a Kickstarter group. Resembling beach sandals, you strap them to your feet or shoes, sit in a chair, and simulate walking or running while playing your favorite VR title. Simple but effective.

With all those extra booths this year, the Indie game area was packed tight with playable titles. Some that I played included Magical Girl’s Chronicle: Magusphere, which combined the cuteness of magical girls with the violence of blowing up tanks and enemies with guns and bazookas. And Liberated by Polish company Walkabout, where you literally play through the panels of a graphic novel. Both games will be out on the PS4 next year.

Overall, there were no big surprises this year at the Tokyo Game Show 2019, but still had plenty to offer and gave us a peak at what’s to come.
