I have just received an e-mail about the PS4 Playstation Plus games for January:



The e-mail also included a voucher for a Grim Fandango Theme.
No word on the other games in the e-mail and no post on the blog yet.

Grim Fandango is a great choice, was waiting for it to come to Plus, haven't played it in years. Don't know anything about Hardware: Rivals.
I will update the thread when we know more. In the meantime, here are the launch trailers for both games.

Edit:

Full list of January PS+ games:

Grim Fandango Remastered
Hardware: Rivals
Dragon Age: Origins (PS3)
Medal of Honor: Warfighter (PS3)
Nihilumbra (PS Vita)
Legends of War: Patton (PS Vita)

DAMN, I bought Grim Fandango in October for like 4 bucks and haven't played it. My own fault, I kept saying "this is gonna be PS+", then felt like playing it so I bought it, then got sidetracked with other stuff entirely(mostly Transformers)

Oh well. Hearing people talk about it will likely convince me to play it

Already platinumed Grim Fandango, but glad other people get to share in such a wonderful game!

Missed out on the Hardware Rivals beta but I do love car combat so looking forward to giving that a shot.

I'll give Hardware Rivals a try. I heard that Grim Fandango is basically "strategy guide: the game" and can't be beaten without one, so I am not interested

Oh man, Hardware Rivals. Played the beta and I found it pretty to look at but not fun at all. Maybe its been improved since then. Already played GFR, fantastic albeit a bit clunky, hoping the vita selection is better.

PS+ really scraping the bottom of the barrel lately. A free game and a remaster?

Don't really play online much anymore might as well just let my subs lapse in Feb.

It's a shame Ive been PS+ since PS3 days without a break.

Hardware : Rivals looks like the typical PvP only games that I never managed to like. Hope the PS3 selection will be better.

Yeah.

I already have Grim Fandango and don't have much interest in MP only games but I'll grab the theme. I hope there's at least one game that interests me in the PS3 and Vita lineups but I'm not going to cry if there isn't.

Same here... Should have played it before Tales of the Borderlands and I would have felt a little better. :P

Grim Fandango has routinely been $3.74 on both PSN and Steam. Not exactly a great pick there.

Nothing wrong iwth getting a remaster (although I'm not interested in it). Hardware Rivals is a F2P game though?

God damn it I am never buying another Double Fine game on PS4 ever again.

I buy Broken Age.. BOOM free on PS+
I buy Grim Fandango... BOOM free on PS+

At least Grim is easily worth the money.

Also got a code for a Grim Fandango theme. Looks cool, but no music, so that makes it a theme I'll never use.

It can be beaten without a guide unless you're impatient or if you're going for the platinum, because some of the optional conversations etc. tied to trophies can be easily missed.

Comparing to Hardware Rivals? Not sure about it. It was on beta and it was a pretty okay beta. It'll definitely satisfy the Twisted Metal crowd.
