Free PC Games
« on: September 19, 2020, 12:17:23 AM »
Thought it might be an idea to have a thread for all the free PC games that you can get these days thanks to game store hegemony.

Have found this site as a good source of free game news:

Noticed that Football Manager 2020 is free at the moment for you football headz.
Epic gives away so many games it's hard to keep up. Post anything worth the hard drive space from any platform, steam, epic, ubi etc. here.

I use Opera GX to watch twitch, the start page there has lots if deals, will post em when I see em. I'd argue Football Manager is a bigger giveaway than GTA 5 and Civ 6 maybe?

Cheers dude. Not sure about numbers but the GTA giveaway certainly buggered up the Rockstar servers for a while.

I've always been very jealous of my friends who got addicted to Football Manager. Is it possible for someone like me who has zero interest in football to get into it?

I like a game of Guwange or DoDonpachi as much as the next man. OR WOMAN (thanks Stan. Sorry! Loretta). Get them posted if they're free and worth hammering the fire button for.

When you're in doubt, the Steam free games is always worth a check out, there was really a big splurge in free games earlier in the year, but seems to have quietened down now (yay lockdown!)

Warframe, TF2, LOTRO and the (actual) World of ... games for Dads are all quality

Yep may as well include free to play games, at least the ones that aren't exploitative Skinner boxes. War Thunder is good and I've been playing Counter Strike: Global Offensive a wee bit recently.
Hit me up on Steam as Crabsantler if yous fancy. wee go on the counter strikes.

Good lad! Sorry for the late reply.

Blue Wish Resurrection Plus and Dokingan are two of my favourites.

I remember there being a few subreddits that kept up with the latest game freebies, have you had a look into that? These seem to be quite active from a quick google.

Ha! It was going fucky on the PS4 (common problem from a quick google) so my nephew just bought it yesterday for the PC. I already had it on my steam account but he's not getting that! Little bugger's nabbed everything else!
What do we get for buying it 3 times? A kick in the cods, I'd wager!

Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 free on Epic this week(end)

For the Rocket League change above, Steam owners need to link their purchase to an Epic account to play, that's going to make a lot of them happier, right.....

"3 out of 10", an adventure game about a bad game studio, is still free on Epic atm

"Pikuniku" a puzzle/adventure game is free on Epic this week

I picked up Pikuniku on the Switch in a sale ages ago. It's hilarious and well worth a look.

Blue Wish Resurrection Plus
Had a quick go of this: strong Donpachi vibes, really good shooter, especially freeware, cheers. Need to get the arcade stick connected back up. Not had a MAMEfest in a while either.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam free on Epic tomorrow. Rising Storm 1/Red Orchestra 2 (games are merged into 1) is one of the few online only shooters I still play and Rising storm 2 is a great bunch of lads, so I hear. Almost bought this in a Steam sale a few weeks ago but the sale ended while I was browsing Steam.

Abzu is also free on Epic tomorrow, for those who might enjoy underwater walking simulators, it looks nice and cartoony and stylish, but is a walking simulator/screensaver.

Rising Storm Vietnam 2 is also an interesting game, I got it after playing and eventually getting the hang of Red Orchestra 2. It is a brutal, "realistic" shooter

Folks it's the big one. The mother lode.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is FREE on Steam.

Finally a way to play this obscure gem that doesn't break the bank.

Streets Of Kamurocho free on Steam as part of the 60th Sega thing - if you sign up at their site at https://www.sega60th.com/ you can also get a copy of NIGHTS into Dreams on Steam if you link your account to SEGA.
Also Free as part of the 60th are Golden Axed - a "crunched" games form 8 years ago that's being released, and a Total-War card game too

Sadly I don't have the time these days, but I'm going to say a big thank you to you lot anyway for old time's sake as, during a particularly dark and difficult few years around a decade ago, PC strategy games (a couple of which I see in the above links) and Mystery Science Theater 3000 were about the only things that kept me going.

A thread for me to bookmark for future perhaps...
