posted up the weekly PlayStation Plus updates today, which includes Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for PS Plus members.
To quote: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons was praised by game critics last year for its successful meshing of story and gameplay.
Controlling the two brothers of the story with one analog stick each can take some getting used to, but you'll find your rhythm as you solve puzzles with the end goal of saving your ailing father.
Starting tomorrow you can get your friends together and pit your wormy soldiers against each other in Worms: Battle Island on PS Vita. The adorable franchise has remained a favorite over the years with its classic turn-based strategy gameplay.
With options like dressing your worms how you want and using oddball weapons like a Holy Hand Grenade, your fights will have plenty of pizzaz.
Finally, there's a new PS Vita PLAY sale starting with OlliOlli. If you like music and rhythm games there's also an entire sale dedicated to titles in those genres, so check out all the discounts below.
You can download Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Worms: Battle Islands after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 1/21.
