Google has announced that it is shutting down its Stadia cloud gaming service, but Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service seems to still be going strong. As it does each month, Amazon is adding new games to Luna next month for paid subscribers and rotating in six new games that Prime members can play for free. The free games in October for Prime members are Blair Witch, Earthworm Jim 2, Metro Exodus, Monster Truck Championship, SkateBIRD, and Star Wars Pinball. If you’re a paid subscriber to the Luna+ Channel, you’ll see Chicken Police — Paint it RED! and Martha is Dead added in October. Family Channel subscribers are getting Are you Smarter Than a 5th Grader? added, but there aren’t any new games for the Retro Channel, Ubisoft+ Channel, or the Jackbox Games Channel. As always, these Luna games are playable on most Fire TV models, computers, phones, tablets, and newer Samsung Smart TVs. They work best with the Luna Controller, thanks to its ability to connect directly to Luna’s game servers over wifi for reduced latency, but generic Bluetooth, Xbox, or PlayStation control works as well. If you don’t have a controller to use, you can use your phone as a virtual controller to give the service a try without spending any money.
