Late last month, Sony announced that PlayStation Plus will stop offering monthly PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita titles starting next year. From March 8th, 2019, going forward for the foreseeable future, PS4 players can look forward to just two free PS4 titles each month as part of their Playstation Plus subscription.
This won’t affect any games players already downloaded, or will download, prior to March 8, 2019. These games will still be part of players’ PS Plus games libraries as long as they remain a PS Plus subscriber. Game saves and other benefits of PS Plus will also be unaffected – the only change is that no new PS3 and PS Vita games will be added to the PS Plus monthly games lineup after March 8, 2019.
Sony provided a reason for this change in their official blog post which also announced this month’s line up of free Playstation Plus titles. “Many of our fans are playing on the PS4 platform, with the increasingly vast number of PS4s in homes around the world; We’ll continue to prioritize the benefits you receive through your PS Plus membership, such as online multiplayer, online game save storage, PS4 monthly games, and exclusive PS Store discounts across content and network services.”

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ.
My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up.
I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities.
My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
