Title: The "KEEP EACH OTHER POSTED ABOUT FREE GAMES" thread
Post by: Dutchman on October 16, 2014, 05:39:59 PM
Let me sticky this.

*stick*

Recently lots of sites like Steam, Origin and Gog.com have been chucking free games around. I thought this would be a good place to let you idiots know when they are, seeing as in the past they had things like Wing Commander III: The one with Mark Hamil and the talking Lion, and other decent games from the past on offer:

The Steam thing is just what they often do.
Having game/s free for the weekend, then you have to buy em to keep playing.
So, don't think it really falls under this category.

Origin is trying to get people to like it by giving away free shit.  Last week it was Dragon Age Origins.

As mentioned above, its Bejeweled 3 now.

Yeah, too bad I bought Dragon Age Origins as it was 5 bucks with all DLC on Steam last week.
And it's still a fantastic game.
Having a ton of fun with it, playing all the DLC stuff for the first time.

I'm surprised that a game from 1995 can take up 2 gigs of HD space.

Considering Hexen came out the same year and came shipped on like, seven floppy disks.  1.4meg storage on each.

They had it listed as 2 gigs.

PS3: Hitman HD Trilogy

PS4: Injustice: Gods Among Us Collector's Edition

All free, not sure how long but obviously you have to be a plus member, not sure if this constitutes as free. But it might as well since you practically have to have it to be on PS4.

Yes. Once you are a member of PSPlus, and the game is free, its free. But for PS4 you basically have to have plus to play online so, that's why I said not sure if it constitutes as being free but again it is(techincally.)

There's always a ton of free shit off PSN for Playstation Plus subscribers.

I got Duke 3D Megaton Edition, Ducktales Remastered, The Hitman Trilogy, Deadly Premonition, some Sherlock Holmes game that seems neat, and I would have gotten shit like Bioshock Infinite if I had had it when that was a promotion. $50 for one year, and you more than get your value back on great games?

Fuck yes. PSPlus is great

Saints Row 2's currently available for free on Steam.

Edit: also on Gog.com, apparently, and probably some other places. The Gog.com tweet mentions a 48-hour deadline. Steam just states it's a limited time offer.
