Take control of War, one of the fabled Horseman of the Apocalypse, and rain down destruction with a combination of brutal attacks and supernatural abilities. Darksiders’ true appeal however isn’t just in its visceral action. With an emphasis on open world traversal and mind-bending dungeons to explore, Darksiders delivers a true adventure, supported by the amazing art styling of comic book art genius Joe Madureira.

Stardrone Extreme

50% off for PS Plus members (Original price: $3.99; PS Plus Price: $2.00)

Don’t miss out on this great deal for the PS Vita charmer Stardrone Extreme. Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself out of a cannon into outer space. Your spaceship stays in motion from this point on, and it’s your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate its flight path. While tethered to a beacon, you’ll swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic brings together elements of shoot ‘em up, pinball, collecting objects; all in one unique game.

One other note; some of you noticed that inFAMOUS 2 left PlayStation Plus as a free game last week. This was an error and it will be back in the Instant Game Collection on the 1/15 PlayStation Store Update.

Is Stardrone one of those that auto-sync's the 100%? How is the gameplay? Sounds like Angry Birds Star Wars...

Just reading over forums else where and it does sound like a game that you can auto-pop the trophies on.

Pretty disappointed with Plus for the last month or so.
Stardone is auto pop but it isn't cross buy so you'll have to pay for the other version.

Ahh, thanks Shoe. Is it worth the time/money/effort?
It's not hard but it is no pushover. At least to me it wasn't. I liked it overall.
