    And the sky is blue and 2+2 equals 4. Nothing surprising here. Whatever. I never got to download Hitman from August, so October will give me a chance to catch up a little. But it is just a little bit ridiculous.

    I don't understand why there can't be one big program instead of what 3? (EU, NA, US). I mean I already own SOTC from when it was $5.00 from last month. And ICO was free this month...

    This month was one of the best for me and EU I don't really see how they can top it.
    We've already had 3 of the 5 listed here.

    SotC is nice considering we got Ico last month.

    I already own a copy of KoA: R for the Xbox but it's got some pretty decent replay value (albeit it's a bit repetitive) but I'll give it another go. I never beat it actually, but I've probably put around 40-50 hours in it.

    Don't really give a shit about Poker Night 2, you'll get the same value by watching all the lines on Youtube without a crappy poker game shoved in.

    Already bought Hotline Miami on PS3+Vita but if you haven't played it yet, you should. It's amazing.

    Been wanting Sine Mora on the Vita so yay.

    I like it.

    This is actually a better selection than the usual US offering, I think it's decent.

    Hell yeah been wanting to play alamur for freaking ever. An hotline miami is certainly going to keep my attention during work :) great list this time around. Anyone know if Sine mora is any good? I mean sure it is free to check out but curious none the less if I should bump it up some.

    Wouldn't it be better to just make all one thread for this kinda stuff every month? Since all console devs do free games now.

    No because only Sony does it.

    Well Microsoft sorta does, but only until the launch of Xbox One. And Nintendo doesn't do it aside from Club Nintendo.

    That is kinda the point. :/ free games are free games, and they all do it once a month.

    But the Club Nintendo stuff gets posted in the 3DS section. And again, Microsoft is only doing it till November and I don't think people post on what games they're giving away because it's usually really really old (Halo 3, AC2...).

    KoA is a great addition, if late.
    SotC only disappoints me because the PS2 version is still in my backlog.
    I'll play Poker Night 2 for the exact reason I bought the first one on Steam: In-game stuff for another game, in this case Borderlands 2.
    Hotline Miami/Sine Mora: Another month US Vita owners get shafted. I'm a big supporter of indie games, especially on more closed-off platforms, but that doesn't mean my Vita can subsist on them entirely. I don't know if Sine Mora is technically an indie game or not but regardless I wasn't a huge fan based on what I've played of it already.
