Title: Free games
Post by: bob on August 22, 2017, 09:16:41 PM
Since I come across free games a lot and probably very few people know about them being free, I figure I'll just post them here as I come across them.

This won't include "free" games ala the monthly Playstation Plus or Games with Gold titles or pirated games (and don't even think about posting links to those.) Also won't include mobile games, because I don't care about mobile games. Only actual free ones.

So to start off:

Shadow Warrior is free on Steam. This seems like a 1 day only thing, so go grab it like now or it'll be too late.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/233130/Shadow_Warrior/

And over on Origin you can grab Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault. I don't know how long this lasts. EA seems to have no rhyme or reason as to when they change it.

And Club Ubisoft has Rayman Origins free for the remainder of August

Two questions:
Would titles such as AM2R or Pokémon Uranium be permissed to link towards?
Would BitTorrent magnet links be permissed?
Title: Re: Free games
Post by: bob on August 23, 2017, 01:49:21 AM
I wouldn't link those as they've both been issued takedown orders. They're easy enough to find for anyone who really wants to play them though.

Not quite a game, but the season pass for Star Wars Battlefront is now free on PS4, Xbone, and PC. I don't know if it's only a limited time thing or what, so if you have the game you might want to jump on that ASAP

I would recommend Outlast and it's DLC "Whistleblower". I bought it on my Xbox One when it was on sale for like Ł5 and I had an absolute blast when playing it! I'm a big fan of horror games and Outlast certainly takes the cake with being one of the scariest and best for me!

If you're a fan of horror games then I would highly recommend you get this before it's not free anymore!
