PlayStation Plus has been brilliant for smaller games. Some of the freebies on there are streets ahead of AAA titles in terms of gameplay. Between the freebies on my Vita and PS4 I've been pretty much sorted for personal gaming lately. Although I did buy Rogue Legacy on PSN the other day, plus it's cross buy

Playing Plague Inc. a lot the last few days.

You control a plague and your aim is to wipe out humanity. There's loads of variety in what you can do, including controlling how your plague gets transmitted, what symptoms it causes etc. A country's climate, wealth and geography impacts on how well your plague does so there's lots of tactics involved. And all countries are trying to develop a cure too so it's a race against time. There's a cool Planet of the Apes mode too but I haven't played it yet.

It's awkward enough at the start. You have to wait 'til your DNA keeps building up, and just pop those little bubbles that sometimes appear. I think transmitting your plague is the most important thing at the start.

Get it too as many people as possibly, then turn it deadly. Helps to ruin the US or Europe early to stop them curing it.
