Stick it to the Man

Next month, Playstation Plus members will be getting Stick It To The Man (PS4) as the PS4 game for the month. We've previously mentioned how wacky this game is, but it's best to be reminded about this title.

On an ordinary day, hard hat tester Ray has a bizarre accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain, giving him extraordinary mind-reading powers. Ray can suddenly change the world with stickers, transforming his paper universe by tearing it, folding it and using the crazy stickers he finds (along with his awesome new powers) to solve mind-boggling puzzles! Sadly, Ray doesn’t have much time to get to grips with his new-fangled psychic abilities. Instead, he’s on the run from ‘The Man’ for a crime he didn’t commit. Can you help Ray out of this sticky situation?

Playstation 3 users will be getting three titles that seem to cover a wide spectrum of gaming tastes. First up is the acclaimed Puppeteer.

One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet. Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured the boy’s wooden head and cast away his body. But the headless hero was not alone, for he had discovered a very special pair of scissors to help him on his harrowing adventure to find his head, and his way home.
PES 2014

Users will also be getting Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 to fill any football voids they've been feeling. If you thought Metal Gear was the only game to use the Fox Engine, you may be mistaken, as PES also uses the Fox Engine.

Experience a whole new ball game with KONAMI’s PES 2014. The stunning new FOX Engine has been combined with a revolutionary soccer system that puts the ball at the heart of the action for the first time. Every element has been rebuilt and now features all-new physics systems, custom team and player AI and a huge leap forward in animations and atmosphere.

If you've got an itch for fighting games, scratch away with, also being added next month to the Playstation Plus lineup.

Skullgirls Encore is an update to the original Skullgirls, a fast-paced 2-D fighting game that puts players in control of fierce warriors in an extraordinary Dark Deco world. Building on its established game systems tried and tested by veteran and casual fighting game fans alike, Skullgirls Encore includes new systems, new stages and music, balance adjustments, gameplay tweaks and more. All brought to you with the same high quality Skullgirls and Lab Zero Games are known for!
They haven't forgotten about Playstation Vita users, as there will be two games joining the IGC next month for PS Vita.


First up is this match-puzzler, Surge Deluxe (Vita).

A new energy source provides humanity with enormous electrical power, but by-product materials build up fast, and must be constantly cleared to keep pressure levels in check. Shatter the dangerous by-products by routing electrical surges between matching blocks, and then vent pressure in huge blasts to buy you more time! Surge Deluxe puts sizzling electrical energy at your fingertips!
Limbo Vita

Finally, the beautifully done gem, LIMBO (Vita) begs users to tread down the dark journey of this young boy searching for his sister.

Uncertain of his sister’s fate, a boy enters LIMBO.
I'm scared.

Also, let the Playstation Plus team know your thoughts about April's North America lineup. They've provided a poll, making it easy for you to express your feelings about what has come.

There will also be one for May's lineup, at the end of May, so be on the look-out every month for those polls. Your voice shapes the way Playstation Plus delivers content to you.

An enigmatic figure, whose biography is narrated by the same voice as most North America movie trailers, Shadow walks a dangerous line in the life of a man who does not exist...

Actually, he's a mild-mannered New Yorker who lives and breathes gaming. He also loves long walks on the beach...

While his biographical strategy may be questionable, this genuine and sincere gamer enjoys all the flavors of life, including all aspects of gaming. Being heavily invested in video games since the dawn of gaming, he usually prefers to experience gaming across multiple platforms through multiple perspectives, but will always feel best at home in an Arcade environment.

Here on TrueTrophies, he's usually writing about important PlayStation announcements and tries to keep up with the daunting abyss of lists in the PlayStation store weekly updates. He usually gets the chance to spread the word about sales that occur on the PlayStation Network, and takes pride in getting out the word of the latest Flash Sales when they occur. However, he's eternally grateful to the entire Newshound family for all their hard work and diligent writing, for he feels that they contribute the most to the site's news.

Under the strong and lovely guidance of Rebecca Smith (aka Punkyliar), he's making himself a home in the Newshound lounge.

He's also the Site Social Manager, Forum Manager, a Moderator and Janitor. If you hear him grumbling down the hall, you'll hear echoes of, "Someone's gotta do the dirty work *grumble grumble*..."

He loves conversation, so if you have anything to say to him, his inbox is always open for comment, criticism, conversation, or even a bit of trolling.
