Can you recommend playing Genesis? The ratings are mixed.

I can recommend getting it for free with a single click, which is what I did

That's how you add new items to your pile of shame actually :] I've got the problem that I've not played about 90% of my games. And when I find time to play I wanna make sure that's worth it in the future.

Not complaining about your post of letting us know of the free game though. I was just curios if you would've recommended it.

Sometimes, you don't want to do the research right away though whether the game is any good or not, so I just get the game and check it out later.

I recommend using GOG Galaxy, as you can integrate pretty much all launchers there and see all your games. You can tag your games and create gamelists this way. So, these unchecked free games go into my "check reviews"-list. If the game is any good, it goes into my "Playlist"-list. Really nice games I plan to play in the very near future go into my "Priority Playlist"-list.

So, to me, owning a game does not necessarily mean it enters my backlog. 🙂

I played half of the tutorial, and I thought it was boring, confusing, and irritating. Not my cup of tea at all, but it was free so I didn't lose anything.

Thanks, I can also recommend gog galaxy. The idea of the custom tags is really nice, I'll have to try this out too!

Grab Jazz Jackrabbit 2 before Nov 3, 9 AM EDT.

Pretty nostalgic because I remember watching the trailer for this game... over 20 years ago, included on a disc for Railroad Tycoon II. It's also an early game from the company now known as Epic Games... shouldn't they be the ones giving it away for free?

Warhammer 2 Vermintide 100% off on Steam, ends Nov. 7, 1 PM

"Chaos Wastes" DLC for the game is also free. I clicked "Add to Library" after getting the base game.

Terroir 100% off on GOG

Terroir is a 3D tile-based tycoon game where you manage your very own vineyard. In Terroir, you grow a variety of different grape varietals, craft your wine, and expand and manage your Estate. You'll also have to deal with factors such as weather and random events, which can either make or break your business.

This is probably the start of better-than-usual giveaways from Epic Games.

Starting with Saints Row IV + All DLC, and Wildcat Gun Machine. Next week's free game is not named to build hype.

There's rumor that starting 15th, there will be a new free game on a daily basis again.

To be honest, it's amazing what they gave out over the years... my Epic Games library is full of stuff I paid good money for on Steam. It only has been recently that their giveaways have become a bit lame.

As you frequently post the GOG freebies here: They're quite a laugh compared to what Epic Games gave away for free. But, that's not really a surprise, as Epic Games pays a lot of money for their giveaways, to get their store and service running. Didn't really work out so far though.

For my freebie of the day: Portal with RTX was released today. I can only recommend to download it if you have a beast of a high end PC though. Even in Full HD with reduced settings, it runs like crap here... Well, apart from some more graphics eye candy, it's the same game as the normal Portal anyway. ;)

On my 3060 Ti at 1440p, I had to switch to DLSS performance mode and reduce the light bounces a little, to make it half acceptable. Control and Cyberpunk had a lot better raytracing performance.

IDK about GOG, but my understanding is that Epic Games Store is not profitable, and isn't expected to be before 2027.

https://www.pcgamer.com/epic-has-sunk-dollar500m-into-the-epic-games-store-doesnt-expect-to-make-a-profit-until-2027/

But they have made so much money from Fortnite that they can afford to take the hits in order to establish themselves as at least the industry's #2 behind Steam.

I find GOG to be the most "trustworthy" platform with some exceptions, and Steam to be the most interesting/useful with their huge support for Linux gaming via Proton/WINE contributions and the Steam Deck.

      Query: when was the last time a zombie in a video game was unnerving or scary to you? I'm chipping away at my anniversary submission and I've been trying to gather opinions on the subject. I'm perfectly capable of lighting them well, changing their sfx, and creating effective ambience, but I'm worried that zombies at their core are just too overdone to be an effective payoff to the tension I'm creating.

      Has anyone had any luck with textures from Polyhaven? Their OpenEXR normal maps seem too washed out and give incorrect shading in the engine.

      I tried to upscale the TDM logo video. First try:

      briefing_video.mp4 You can test it ingame by making a copy of the core tdm_gui.mtr and place it in your-tdm-root/materials/ , then edit line 249 of that file into the location where you placed the new briefing.mp4 file.
      What I did was I extracted all the image files, then used Upscayl to upscale the images using General photo (Real-Esrgan) upscale setting and then turn it back into a video.
      I might have to crop it a bit, the logo looks smaller on screen (or maybe it's actually better this way?). My video editor turned it into a 16:9 video, which I think overal looks better than 1:1 video of original.
