Sony hasn't announced what February's free games will be, but they have announced that anyone who signs up for PS+ in February will get a free copy of Far Cry 4. This only applies to people who do not have an account already, which is pretty bogus IMO.

I take it back! Next month's free games just got announced.

PS4:
- Knack (meh)
- Rime (puzzle game that looks kinda Ico/Shadow of the Colossus-ish in terms of atmosphere. Will probably check it out)
- Grand Kingdom (turn based strategy rpg, looks kind of similar to Advance Wars. Might check out.)
PS3:
- Spelunker HD (this literally just looks like Spelunky with a new coat of paint. Meh.)
- Mugen Souls Z (anime fanservice JRPG... I hate these)

Vita:
- Exile's End (pixel-y action sidescroller)
- Grand Kingdom (crossbuy)

Not as good as last month, but Rime looks good. I've considered it a couple times when it was on sale.

Yeah, it seems like they've got a pattern going. One month of good games, one month of meh. I got Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain, Just Cause 3, and The Amnesia Collection all from those good months.

Although Spelunky was very loosely inspired by Spelunker, which originated on home computers in the early 80s before getting an infamously hard NES version, in reality the two games have very little in common. Spelunker HD actually has a pretty decent amount of old-school charm, particularly if you play it with 8-bit graphics as opposed to the ass-ugly default visuals, and fixes a couple of the more irritating aspects of the NES version.
