Lilo's Lair #44: Free Game Friday, October! Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Another free game Friday and with October just around this next corner, I’ve got a great new list! That’s right, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live have already announced the October’s list of new free games! I get so excited about these posts. If you are unaware, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live select games to be free for each month. You can go into your PlayStation or Xbox store to find them! This month some of the games are available at different times, and I have made sure to note that next to the game. Here are the games for October:

Xbox One

Gone Home (October 1-31)

The first game on my list is an adventure and exploration game where you take the role of Katie. Katie has just returned from overseas to her family home in Oregon to find her entire family gone from the house! You will scurry around the house finding clues to what happened to your family. The ratings for this game are not too shabby with a 7/10 on Steam, 9.5/10 on IGN, and an 86% on Metacritic.


The Turing Test (October 16-November 15)

IMAGE FROM STEAM

In The Turing Test, the main character is Ava Turing–an astronaut who is in cryogenic sleep waiting to be awoken after the other members of her team set up a base on Europa. However, she ends up being awoken by the T.O.M. (the Technical Operations Machine) and set out towards the base on Europa to help her other crew members. To get there, a series of puzzles must be solved to keep progressing. This is indeed a puzzle game and has a pretty sweet twist in the plot too. This game has good reviews with a 9/10 on Steam, 7/10 on IGN, and 80% on Metacritic for the Xbox One version.


Oxenfree (September game giveaway available through October 15)

IMAGE FROM STEAM

Oxenfree was on last months list, and it’s free until October 15th–much like how The Turing Test is free from mid-October to mid-November. This game is a graphic adventure that gets a little spooky! Perfect for October (or what I  affectionately call Harry Potter month because I re-watch all the movies every October). In Oxenfree you play as Alex, a girl having a little get together with friends on a creepy island that happens to be possessed. Alex and her friends happen to accidentally unleash a paranormal force! The ratings for this are very positive with a 9/10 on Steam and 8.2 at IGN.

Medal of Honor: Airborne (October 16-31)

IMAGE FROM STEAM

This is a first-person shooter set place in World War II and is the eleventh in the series. You get to play as a paratrooper who jumps into different locations behind enemy lines to take on a mission. This game does not have linear game-play, and you are allowed to choose between the missions each time. This game has positive reviews of 73% on Metacritic, 7.9 on IGN, and 7/10 on Steam.

PlayStation 4

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

IMAGE FROM STEAM

Metal Gear Solid 5 is an action-adventure, stealth game where you take on the role of Snake. You will travel to Soviet-controlled regions seeking revenge for those who destroyed your forces. This game has SUPER high ratings! 9/10 on Steam, 10/10 on Gamespot, and 10/10 on IGN. This is definitely one to pick up for free in your PlayStation store.


Amnesia: Collection

Amnesia Collection

IMAGE FROM STEAM

The whole collection of Amnesia. That means Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, The Dark Descent, and Justine. This is a perfect one for October considering it’s a horror action game. In each one, you are a different person who wakes up and discovers themselves in an unfortunate situation. Things can get real creepy, like with torture dungeons inside “abandoned” castles. If you want a little fright in your life for October, this game is for you. The ratings are positive with a 78% at Metacritic for the entire collection. The first game (The Dark Descent) has much better ratings than its sequels. The first one, in fact, has a 10/10 on Steam!

PlayStation 3

Monster Jam Battlegrounds

IMAGE FROM STEAM

A monster truck racing game! Though, not sure how racing heavy this game is because it looks like it’s more about doing monster truck tricks. That means this racing game requires some skill to get to the tracks finish since you’ll be faced with crazy tricks and jumps you have to complete. This game has pretty low ratings. On Steam it has a 5/10. It’s hard to find reviews at other big sites because this game is just not very popular. It is still free though, so the only thing you’ll waste is time!


Hustle Kings

This is a billiards game, and there really isn’t much else to tell you because it’s straightforward. Hustle Kings has a 52% on Metacritic (ouch), but a 7/10 on IGN. Mixed reviews usually lead to more mediocre games, but it might be just the game you were looking for to scratch that billiards itch.

Hue is a free game for the Vita, but you can also play it on the PS4. This is a puzzle adventure game all about color. While exploring a gray land in search for your mother, you come upon fragments of color. This is an award-winning game with a 4.5/5 rating in the PlayStation Store.


Sky Force Anniversary (cross-buy with PS4, PS3)

This game for Vita can also be played on PS4 and PS3. This is a recreation of the popular Sky Force shoot ’em up. Your goal is to save the world by flying around, avoiding lasers and bullets while taking our your enemies. This game has positive reviews with a 9/10 on Steam and 77% on Metacritic.

    Lilo, I wish you’d include trailers for each of these free games the next time. It definitely gets me (and a lot of readers) hyped to see even just a sampling of the game, after all. Just my two cents.

    I must admit this is a great compilation of free games to enjoy our free time. Almost all these games are new for me and Oxenfree impressed me with the description itself and I will try it out at first, The Turning Test also looks like a cool game. Anyway, all these games look cool and I huts told my brother and he said he will be my gaming buddy. Thank you, Lilo for sharing this wonderful list.
