Lilo's Lair #5: Free Game Friday. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

It’s Friday! Got any gaming plans? I have a date with a plate of nachos that have so many jalapenos I can barely lift the chips. Then, I’m going to wash it all down with a Rockstar and greet the sunrise gaming. Woohoo!

Now, I thought “Friday….what a great day to share free games“. Mostly because it sounds good: Free Friday. Lilo’s Lair Free Game Fridays. Yup, I like that sound of that. Hopefully, you do too because this is going to be a habit.

Being as this is the very first Friday of a new month, it’s a very good time for me to compile a list for you. See, every month both Xbox live and PlayStation Plus offers new free games. Welcome to August!


Xbox Live

There are four games, all of which are available on Xbox One, but only two of those are available for Xbox 360 as well. Without further ado…

Slime Rancher (Xbox One)
Genre: Life simulation

This is a first-person open world game about Beatrix LeBeau, a rancher who has moved a thousand light years from planet Earth to live her dreams of being a slime rancher. You will construct your ranch and collect, raise, feed, and breed your slimes. Yeehaw!

Trials Fusion (Xbox One)
Genre: Racing

A single player, third-person with a combat system similar to Devil May Cry. You’ll play as Bayonetta, an Umbra Witch who’s just woken from a 500-year slumber. She fights the angels of Paradiso to uncover the mystery of her past that she has forgotten after her super long cat nap.

Red Faction: Armageddon (Xbox One and 360)
Genre: Shooter

This is a third-person shooter where you play Darius Mason. This game takes place 50 years after Red Faction: Guerrilla. You’ll spend most the game in underground tunnels of colonized Mars with some weird Alien creatures that look better dead. Darius may or may not have released them from their vault, whoops.


PlayStation Plus

There are six total games for three different gaming devices–PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.

Just Cause 3 (PS4)
Genre: Action-Adventure

Third-person, open world game set in the fictional Mediterranean island, Medici. You’ll play as Rico Rodriguez, a man looking to destroy General Di Ravello–the power hungry dictator of Medici. Your mission is utter havoc. Hope you like making explosions.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry (PS4)

A 1-4 player couch co-op adventure game about digging. You’re on Mars in an alternative Cold-War era, working for Solarus Corporation–a mining company that needs the sweet goods at the center of the red planet. You’ll man a digging machine barreling into Mars for its precious resources and discovering some questionable things going on while doing it.

Snakeball (PS3)
Genre: Action

This is the 3D remake of the 70’s game Snake. Snakeball in the game is a fun, futurist sport that appears to take place at a disco. The goal is to collect balls and score goals. You ride a hoversnake around, while other players try to mess you up. Those jerks.

Downwell (PS Vita)
Genre: Vertically scrolling shooter

Strap on your gun boots and jump down the park well–there’s exploring to do. Make sure to shoot the monsters and collect treasure while you do it!

Level 22: Gary’s Misadventure (PS Vita)
Genre: Action-Stealth

You are Gary, the office worker who’s been late to work too many times–one more and you’re fired! But uh-oh, looks like you slept in late after a night of heavy drinking around town. Time to claw your way up the 22 floors to your desk without Mr. Boss seeing you.


PC

I won’t leave PC gamers hanging. I’ve included five PC games which are some of the best free games out there.

Dota 2
Genre: MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena)

Two teams of five battle it out to destroy the other teams base before they destroy yours. You pick your character from a list of hundreds of available options and work with your teammates while hundreds of creatures continually spawn from the opposing teams base. It’s not an easy feat.

EVE Online
Genre: MMORPG, Space simulation

This mass multiplayer world is controlled by the players. You can do pretty much anything you want in this game, it’s unlimited. Live the space cowboy lifestyle of your dreams. Anyone else thinking about the show Firefly?

Team Fortress 2
Genre: Shooter

This is a first-person multiplayer shooter published by Valve. For this shooter, you join up one of two teams battling it out. There are several different types of battle types including capture the flag and king of the hill. You have nine character class options to choose from.

ArcheAge
Genre: MMORPG

ArcheAge is a sandbox MMO, and there are plenty of options for gameplay. Take over land and build castles, have epic siege battle, be a craftsman and a trader, rule a nation, or be a pirate even.

Skyforge
Genre: MMORPG

This MMO is a little different than most. Its a nice blend of science fiction and fantasy and there is no leveling up or strict classes. You play as an immortal protecting the world from jerk gods. Now, how do you progress without leveling up? Well, you build prestige. This opens up new things for your character. Get enough prestige, and you’ll become a god with a horde of followers.

I hope you enjoyed my list. Have a great weekend! I’ll see you guys again Monday, for my Mobile Monday blog. I’ve got a great new phone game to share with you guys!

  1. SUPER MOTHERLOAD??? I find that title funny but at least it interest me and the game with Baymax too.

  2. skydragonwendymarvell says:

    If I may, DOTA is a worldwide phenomenon. However, I am pretty sure they had to fail a lot of times if not rejected before they became what they are today. If I play DOTA at least the older version I choose the range types.

  3. wolfbro92 says:

    Well said when you mentioned that it was no easy feat to play DOTA 2. Because it is really not, the fact that you have to work with four other players and learn all the skills of more than a hundred heros in the game, it’s really crazy but super fun at the same time!

  4. JansenS says:

    A lot of very nice games on your lists! But if i have to pick one, i will choose to play the DOTA 2 in desktop platform. I’m already an avid fan of this multiplayer online battle arena since the launch of the very first version.

  5. micorobin says:

    A few days on the job and this girl is already flexing wow!!! Keep it up and keep the content coming.

  6. miakayuuki2012 says:

    This gives me a reason to look forward to your content. Great start miss newbie.

  7. califrank says:

    Who needs romance when you’ve got these much fun waiting for you on Fridays? Yeaaahh!

    Thanks for the tip, though, darlin’. 🙂

  8. edg4r32 says:

    An awesome list of free games? You know that only means… no sleep tonight, folks! >:)

    I wish you included links where we can download/play those PC games, tho.

  9. titanierza says:

    If I were the creator of DOTA and AC I would take advantage of mobile too. I Mean sure it may not be as big as consoles money wise but you will have more people playing. In turn more money in the long run.

  10. grayicemake says:

    Any mobile versions of these games? DOTA is out of the question and AC are out of the question but the others perhaps. Fingers crossed.

  11. darkkvader says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I also hope for free games in mobile too! So that I can also check out.

  12. valine13 says:

    Thanks for this! I love seeing the details of the game than putting some more stuff. Thanks for sharing the genres of these games.

  13. amaterasu123 says:

    Downwell is for me. I do not know must be the BAYMAX on the cover. I am gonna try it out.

  14. alexsummers123 says:

    So many unknown games to choose from. I Hope you feature a walkthough for the new titles that will help a lot. So far. RED FACTION pique my interest.

  15. Maury Cheskes says:

    Trials Fusion’s got my name on it. Thanks for the article, Lilo.

  16. saviourv says:

    Ahh, Downwell. Almost forgot about that game. I spotted a video of it about a year or so ago, and it amazed me that such a game was both simple in terms of control, and yet so complex in its gameplay. Might get that sometime.

    As for Super Motherload, I’ve played its prequel (“Motherload”) ages ago, and I liked it a lot. Super Motherload brings a bit more to the table, features-wise and gameplay-wise, so I’ll be getting that as well, once I’ve got funds to spare.

  17. hebrewisraelitesblog says:

    Thanks for the list of games. I play assisins creed all the time but I will probably get one of the other games after reading thanks.

  18. sansnomph says:

    Red faction and DOTA 2 on my list! So much excited for these! Thanks for posting!

  19. theinterpreter13 says:

    Free Friday, I also like the sound of it. Dato 2 is my favorite among the list. Thanks for the post.

  20. beastxmen2012 says:

    Now this is the type of news i wanna read FREE STUFF!!! Not just any free stuff but quality free stuff . LOVE that.

  21. I love this free game Friday post. I hope you keep this every for every Friday! So many games to choose from and experience. I’m interested in Team Fortress 2!

  22. charlesxavier123 says:

    Wow nice freebie list you got here. I will take note of all of it. In particular the games that I have not played before.

  23. unvrso says:

    I love racing games, so trials fusion is a good one to try this Friday evening. Another game of my likes is skyforge; one that appeals to my viewing sense
