A Free Dead Island and RPG Maker, Arkhams Axed by 85%, Reduced RoboCop, and More! – IGN


There’s never been a better time to serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law, and save some moolah. Yep, RoboCop: Rogue City—the game I’d buy for a dollar—has finally seen a decent double-digit discount. I’m also spying a bunch of Final Fantasy related bargains, chief of which being the free FFVII Rebirth demo. Grab it here, register a save file, and then reap a free Summon reward if you decide to buy the full game.

In retro news, I have the 20th birthday of a cult classic that not many of you would have played. Capcom’s Maximo vs. Army of Zin was the second title in a 3D platformer/brawler series experiment. Honestly couldn’t tell you why this enjoyable offshoot of the Ghost ‘n Goblins franchise went the way of the dodo. Hewing through the undead wearing nothing but your love hearted underpants is a timelessly amusing concept.

When you’re born with Maximo strength: 1 weak hit = decapitation.

Now this is how you do a Batverse game (or…several). Make no mistake, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight all hold up phenomenally well today. If you’ve somehow never played them, do yourself the triple favour now.

Dead Island: Riptide Def.

I seriously love Dead Island Riptide for its satisfying zombie dismemberment and co-op. Techland slightly modified the setting and delivered a new character and more content. It’s a fun time, but there are no surprises here. But hey, free’s free!

Avatar: FoP features a stunning alien world to explore with a refreshingly uncluttered approach to navigation, countless enemy bases to destroy and Na’vi clan sidequests to complete, and no shortage of exotic flora and fauna to harvest and hunt.

Still on the fence? Head on over to the PS Store to download a multi-hour demo that will make your mind up. Side bonus: playing the demo unlocks a powerful Summon for the main game. I can confirm you don’t even need to beat the demo to score that unlock.
