I finally upgraded my PC this year, so I am likely to grab a few games. The last few years there was no point, I had everything of interest that would run on my old rig.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

I have about 6-7 games in my wish-list that I have some interest in but I honestly doubt I'll buy more than 2 at most.

I'm waiting for Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator but that won't be in the sale.

Master, I do not find Destiny 2, even using the "search" feature. Probably just me but Wicki shows is as a "multi-player only". Is that your experience? I do not play muliplayer and MMOGs, so, is there a "single player" option?

Sounds interesting,though.

Thanks DaBBQ. I've had that one on my wish list. I don't like their methods, but I've been grabbing as many of the free games on Epic that I can.

I forgot about this thread for a moment, but they recently had What Remains of Edith Finch and Untold Stories for free and I think simultaneously or almost. Both of those I had on my wish list. However, I just discovered they have another new free game available and its another one I've been interested in and its available right now. Arabian Nights themed FPS developed by some Bioshock people.

I missed out on Axiom Verge because I forgot to check back with them and lost track of time. You got to really keep an eye on Epic's storefront because they don't seem to give much info on the freebies and how long they will be up.

Got an F-117A sighting at GOG right now for $1.49...

Another favorite of mine, Subwar 2050 for $3.39...
https://www.gog.com/game/subwar_2050_complete

Subwar includes very imaginative reading material to help set the mood ('Under Currents' magazine). It's a game that makes me think the developers really enjoyed creating it.

Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph

FIFA 20 (Origin) and PES 20 (Steam) have free demo versions on the go... they are both pretty good!

this is already a thing on Steam; you download an app Google Authenticator on your phone or they send you an E-mail with a 6 digit code and you have to have a Rockstar Social Club Login

Epic has a sale on right now, Ghost Recon Break point for $19.79 and if you already have Epic you get a $10 coupon which makes it well worth the price. there is also a Borderlands Bundle for Free.

Thanks Blade,I failed to spot that.

I already own the game on Steam but don't have any of the DLC. I have a love/hate relationship with this game. Mainly hate but I'm willing to give it another go.

*edit* Looks like the DLC is free on Steam too. Anyway,something seems to be wrong. If I select to play any of the free DLC in game it just takes me to the Epic Store where it says I already own it. confused

Hitman: Absolution free on GOG. https://www.gog.com/game/hitman_absolution. Looks like a weekend deal.
