The first half of January gave us the opportunity to check out Deadly Premonition creator Swery's quirky Kinect adventure, D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, but as of Jan. 15, we're in the second half of the month and it's time to download a new game.

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is the free game for the second half of the month. With The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt coming along in May, this is perfect timing – almost as if they did it on purpose.

There's time to check out this game, take a break from the series, and then get back into it while the game's still fresh in your mind.
