April. April fools. That's fun, right?

Having a bunch of morons going around POSTING NEWS IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY THAT YOU WANT TO BE TRUE, BUT IT'S A JOKE

FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY

But, this month, we are getting a game that didn't release 5 years ago! Perhaps that is the joke.

Anyways, here's a link.

Interested?

I'm not surprised by Hitman Absolution, we saw that on PS+ back in August last year.

Since PS+ did a deal with SE, PS+ got Lara Croft: Gol and Sleeping Dogs and those also came to Games with Gold many months laster. It seems a pattern emerged with SE games. Perhaps this means SE's Just Cause 2 will release on on Games for Gold next, since we saw that on PS+ back in June 2012. The newest Tomb Raider is an SE games as well that is found on PS+, but probably six months-a year off for Games with Gold since that's out currently for PS+ now.

I'm hoping Games with Gold kicks off on Xbone soon. They are a rich company as SW Armchair Sales representatives reminds us, so I'm sure they could afford to throw the Xbone a bone. I would love free games to spring up on the Xbone every month like clockwork.

As far as Deadlight, I remember that was big, big news for awhile in SW until it actually released. It was a timed exclusive that had promise. It's newer at least as it released Aug 1, 2012,

68/100 Deadlight metascore.

I knew this the other day, about Hitman anyway. However I hadn't wanted to post it before making sure it'd be 100% certain. Anyway, Absolution isn't even available in Poland! And I wonder what's going to happen in lieu of it or if they're going to finally put it in my region...Btw cool news about Deadlight as I wanted to buy it during Christmas sale.

Microsoft should really consider giving away some mature games instead of this kiddy crap that's rated E.

You mean the people who don't have to pay for online? Unfortunately they don't get anything, well apart from hermits who get a shit ton of F2P games as well as lower game prices all round and constant sales.

You do know that Hitman Absolution is newer than Batman Arkham city. So I guess PSN+ in April isn't as good as Games with Gold. ;)

Also when is the PS4 going to get a retail game and not an indie digital game.

Hitman Absolution (August 2013) and Batman Arkham City (Current) were both apart of PS+, Hitman Absolution (April 2014) is joining the Games for Gold Program in April for two weeks. Batman Arkham City is not. Gamers on one service get both retail games (PSN) and gamers on the other service get one retail game (XBL)...not understanding your point or why you bothered to strawman up Batman as part of your answer, even though it was an easy answer.

I can't answer that snide last question since I don't control either corporation unless you want I should speak in that same rhetoric.

Here goes:

"Also, the PS4 will get a retail game about the time Xbone gets a single DD game FINALLY when Games for Gold starts late on Xbone. ;)"

I used to watch my brother play that when I was little. I remember thinking it was really cool. Played it a little bit.
