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.

DOTA's always free (but there a lot of asshats on the community you've been warned)

Also XCOM: Enemy Unknown free trial is up, for at least 2 more days.  And if your smart you can play for free longer

Injustice: Gods Among us is supposed to be free, but I'm not sure where.  It isn't free on steam from what I can tell (though it is 50% off for just NINE NINETY NINE)

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.
