Costume Quest FREE for PlayStation Plus Members


Holy smokes. I’ll be the first to admit there hasn’t exactly been a overwhelming amount of great content for PlayStation plus, but there have been a few hits here and there. Namely, Stacking (also DoubleFine), Sam and Max season 3, and Resident Evil PS1 classics (maybe still available).

But right now is not the time to hesitate. For the 3 or 4 of you out there that have PlayStationPlus… go download Costume Quest ! Just in time for Halloween. Costume Quest is an excellent DoubleFine game with all of the humor, writing, and generally excellent game design you’ve come to love… Come to think of it, some of you might still be in Sony’s “we’re sorry about mishandling your personal data” period and might have PlayStation Plus access anyhow. Either way it’s an excellent game we’ve featured previously on the site.

It’s a light-hearted RPG style game where kids turn into super-awesome versions of their Halloween costumes to fight bad guys. That’s all you need to know.


Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films/tv, synthesizers, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Switch gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all of this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Top 3 games? Let's go with System Shock 2, A Link to the Past, and Super Castlevania IV. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.
