All the games in this thread are free for about a day.

I'll edit in a list of my favorite actually free games sometime.

Generally, about once every month or three, I'll go on an Itch spree and play a dozen or so recent Itch games.

There's a lot of slop, but some of the most creative ideas are coming out of the indie and homebrew scene.

And some people, like Daniel Linssen, consistently put out great little games.

"Oddworld, Abe's Oddysee" is free for a limited time on gog and Steam. I am not sure how good or bad it is, have never played it. Still, if you are interested, just get it.

 

It's great. There is a remake with better graphics, gameplay and sound though, which is very true to the original: http://store.steampo...ld_New_n_Tasty/

 

It's only a fiver ATM too.

For anyone interested, WatchDogs is available for free on Uplay right now. It said for me, that it is not yet released. No idea why, but I assume it will be unlocked soon.

I know it did not get very good reviews, but if it is good to waste a couple of hours without paying anything for it, it is fine with me. And regarding the spying by Uplay, I do not know where you got that opinion. I did a quick search and did not find anything that would support your statement. Of course, this does not mean that it might be true, but at least it is not as known for it as is Origin.

Wow thanks!


 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Is that sarcasm, or?

If that ain't enough, Assassin's Creed Black Flag is free on Uplay for the holidays (until December 18)!

 

I've been curious to play it despite myself, so now I guess I have no excuse :D

I don't think Assassin's Creed is worth the hype. It's a glorified action thriller.

Black Flag was fun to play. More of a pirate game than an Assassin's Creed, but maybe that's for the best... Anyway, I liked it. But it has been milked pretty bad in the last years, so I have not played any games after black flag and I don't have the feeling that I am missing much.

 

By the way: Company of Heroes 2 is free on humblebundle for a limited time.

assassins creed's stealth is the hide in long grass, and pop up in front of guards who say they've seen something but don't come to have a look unless they can see a corpse, or you whistle at them.

although the back ground story is assassins against knights temple who are both after apples of eden that were left by a long dead advanced race of beings that may have created humans in the far distant past.
