Epic games store freebies

A free game every day on Epic, starting with Cities: Skylines. That'll change at 4pm today.

Also doing that thing where they give you a tenner coupon for anything over 14.99 - this can make for some nice prices, e.g. Star Wars Squadrons becomes 10.99. Bargain! And when you buy one thing with the coupon they apparently give you another.

Got it with 3 minutes to spare. Not really interested in sims but might give it a whirl.

Oooh I got a coupon too!

as such things go, it's pretty good.

New game: the Oddworld remake. Tomorrow's one will be something involving an axe! (the wrapping paper offers a small clue each time)

Oddworld: sidescroller. Do not want.

Just rediscovered I have GTAV in my epic lieberry, just when I was all set to buy it @ Can.$12.

I think I was put off from installing it already by the size of the dl. Maybe I'll bite the bullet and start the sucker.

The Long Dark today. Great game - get it!
I know lots of people have a hate on for Epic, but you can't beat their giveaways.

Got it thanks. Might one day give it a try :)

I also got the Abe one yesterday. I used to enjoy those games years ago.

I hear positive things about Solitairica and have been wanting to try Stranded Deep. Probably will get a few more too (that I will never download or play...)

Alien Isolation next ~4-hours.

I already bought that on a Steam sale as I wanted to try the VR mod. But I got the free Epic one too.

"Release Date
Dec 21, 2020"

From: milko22 Dec 2020 16:38
It's the first day it's available on Epic. Quite a lot of their freebies arrive that way. A little silly when the game's been 'released' elsewhere for a few years already though.

Metro 2033 indeed. I have it from last time they gave it away, or maybe the one before that.

I have the original (also the original sequel, Last Light), the free one is the remastered "redux" edition. which I might dl, as I did quite like the original.

Inside free today. Worth picking up if you haven't played it. Same maker as Limbo.

The ~60G dl took a couple of days, but deffo worth the price of admission.

This game is baaaaaaaaaaaaaad!
