Sideway: New York PS3

Sideway: New York PS3
At E3 last month, Sony announced their PlayStation Plus paid service would be giving members an instant game library. One of those free titles is Sideway: New York, an indie download that got sprayed over by blockbuster taggers when it came out late last year. Like cult classic Jet Grind Radio, this similarly clever little title is set in the world of graffiti. But this appropriately cartoon-esque puzzle-platformer takes the notion a little bit further. While the city is 3D you are not. As Nox, a graffiti artist turned into graffiti art by an evil tagger named Spray, you must navigate the 3D world on a 2D plane, climbing and wrapping around the urban buildings as you go, like an even more mind-bending Super Paper Mario. All set to a banging hip-hop soundtrack courtesy of Mr. Lif. Download it out if you have any interest in graffiti or old-school platformers or, y'know, free shit. (Playbrains)
