Not a big deal really, but I try to keep everything under the Steam umbrella unless I just can't wait the year it will take to hit Steam. Hitman 3 is a case in point, but this one I am going to wait.

Civ games are bad for players that have to get up early and go to work lol.

I prefer Steam because of their backup utility.

Yup, although you can do a similar thing in Epic, it's just not a 'feature'.

I got Civ VI when it was free on Epic, but haven't bothered to install it yet along with quite a few other free games I accepted. I have Civ 5 on Steam and just couldn't get into it so it's currently not installed. I think the total war games have ruined me for trying to play the Civ games.

Anyway, I got all of these free:

Civ 6
Troy Total war saga
Assassins Creed Syndicate
Kingdom Come Deliverance
Metro 2033 Redux
Metro Last Light Redux
Starwars Battlefront II
Mudrunner

Of those, I have only installed and played the Metro 2033 redux. I wasn't that impressed with it over the original which I still have installed through Steam.
I will probably install Last Light redux just to give it a shot also. Still, I have no real issues with Epic and there's nothing wrong with free stuff. With the barrels of money that Steam is raking in, they could offer a few more games free occasionally. At last check, Gabe Newell--head of Valve and Steam was worth 4.1 billion. I think he could even afford it personally.

Cheers

If you didn't like Civ5, you won't like Civ6 I don't think. Very similar, and while there have been many changes and additions, it's still the same game at its core.

Civ 6
Kingdom Come Deliverance
Metro 2033 Redux
Metro Last Light Redux


I have all of these and like them. KCD is great, my favorite melee combat. Worth a go for sure. And I liked Last Light the best of all three Metro games. All of them are good in my view, but Last Light is my favorite. Those are some good games for free, no doubt.

I'm an absolute huge fan of the Metro series. It's a nice experience to actually a play a first person shooter with a different vibe to it and not the usual mainstream stuff.

It really doesn't interest me but being a TW geek, I took advantage of the freebie anyway. My gaming has been curtailed for over a month now since I've had two PC issues complicated by USPS priority mail losing the components I ordered for almost 5 weeks. I'm up and running now having replaced both my PSU and then just subbing in an old GPU for the GTX 980 Ti that had a PCI-e connector go bad making me think it was the Power supply in the first place. My current rig was from Cyberpower but it's 7 years old now. However, it's handled everything I've thrown at it with only the one GPU upgrade made back in 2016

I got so disgusted with my issues that I pulled the trigger on a new custom PC build from Cyberpower this past Monday. That $1400 stimulus recovery deposit that I thought I didn't really need partially helped to fund my new rig after all.

Cheers

I know a lot of people who didn't buy Three Kingdoms simply because they were not interested at all in the historical setting of Ancient China. That's fair enough since the historical settings is really a vital component of any TW historical title.

QUICK ! ACT NOW BEFORE THEY FIGURE THE LOOP HOLE !

if you own hitman on epic (last year giveaway) there is a promotion that will give you hitman gold edition for free for all owners of hitman 3, BUT hitman 3 has a free version of the game with only the starter mission, if you add that one you can still claim hitman gold edition...it will show up full price, but when you add to the chart the full discount applies.
i take back what i said before, epic is a GREAT store, \LMAO

Next week Epic is giving away Alien Isolation. Not sure if any DLC is to be included but unless you already own it or hate Epic it's a must have.

Yup, absolutely. I still can't believe that game was released in 2014. It's scary how quickly time is passing by me.
