Layers of Fear is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Bloober Team. In Layers of Fear, the player controls a psychologically disturbed painter trying to complete his magnum opus, as he navigates through a Victorian mansion, with disturbing secrets about the painter being discovered. The gameplay, presented in first person perspective, is heavily story driven and revolves mostly around puzzle-solving and exploration, as the game intensifies after each level while jump scares occur often. Layers of Fear will be available for download during the entire month of March.

Evolve: Ultimate Edition is a first-person shooter video game developed by Turtle Rock Studios, Evolve uses an asymmetrical multiplayer structure, where five players—four playing as hunters and one as the monster—battle against each other on an industrialized alien planet called Shear. The hunters' gameplay is based on the first-person shooter design, while the monsters are controlled from a third-person perspective. The hunters' goal is to eliminate the monster, while the monster's goal is to consume wildlife and evolve to make themselves stronger. The game can be played alone or with multiple players. Evolve Ultimate Edition will be available from March 16th - April 15th

Borderlands 2 is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game. As with the first game, Borderlands 2 allows players to complete a campaign consisting of central quests and optional side-missions as one of four treasure seekers, "Vault Hunters", on the planet Pandora. Key gameplay features from the original game, such as online collaborative campaign gameplay; randomly generated loot, such as weapons and shields; and character-building elements commonly found in role-playing video games are in Borderlands 2. Borderlands 2 will be available for download from March 1st - 15th

Heavy Weapon is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up video game In Heavy Weapon, The player guides a powerful atomic tank through several stages of opposing enemy forces. The tank moves only left and right, while its main weapon, a turret gun, can be aimed in a 180 degree span and nukes which can destroy enemies off the screen. The game's storyline deals with a Red Star (Soviet Union) invasion, and the player takes the role of the commander of an Atomic Tank to repel the invasion back into the main headquarters of Red Star. The main premise of the game is one individual against the collective forces of Communism.

The game features a total of 19 levels/missions along with two game modes (mission and survival). In mission mode, one must blast through countless enemies and defeat a boss at the end. Mission mode allows for three lives in each mission. Upon defeating the boss, the player visits the armory, where one can get various upgrades and power-ups for use in subsequent missions. After going through the first nine bosses, the player must destroy the same nine bosses in the remaining nine levels, until the final level. The new bosses are slightly different in weapons and armor. Heavy Weapon will be available for download from March 16th - 31st

    SO hyped for Borderlands 2!
    I used to be absolutely in love with that game, having hundreds/thousands of hours on it.
    I was considering getting the Triple Pack, but I'm glad I can postpone that a little bit (Generally don't like spending +-$30 on games I've already played and completed.)

    Heavy Weapon seems really enjoyable too.

    I heard Evolve had some issues, but since it's not only free but also comes with all DLC, I think any bugs can be forgiven.

    And while Layers of Fear does seem fun, I'll probably have to save it for much later. I'm a very jumpy person, so I probably shouldn't play scary games :laugh:

    A great month in my opinion!
