Free games


Recommended Posts

No idea. I only know that Arkane Studios are Frenchies who did Arx Fatalis and Dark Messiah before doing Dishonored, and that they have been advised artistically by Harvey Smith (Deus Ex, System Shock, Thief Deadly Shadows), and that they've had Stepehn Russell as voice actor for some of their games (Arx Fatalis, Dishonored 2, Prey). So, lot of overlap to the Thief games and others.

Thinking of game-related free stuff, if you've not played Last of Us (or even if you have) then make sure you watch the full movie on youtube (I downloaded it with 4K downloader.) A wonderful 6-hour movie of tolerable resolution (1280 x 720).

I found the original gameplay so frustrating I almost gave up several times and only the drama of the story kept me going. I said to myself at the time that I'd rather watch it as a movie. In fact the game feels less like a game and more like you're an actor being directed how to play each scene and every time you get it wrong he shouts 'Cut!' and you have to act it out again from the last checkpoint.

But the movie flows wonderfully. :)

Didn't someone from TTLG work on that game?

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

"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."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

We have been spoiled by the earlier Epic Store freebies. I found the last year or so of freebies there pretty disappointing.

I won't complain though. If I take a look at my Epic library, which consists solely of free games, there are games which I would have paid total of 500 € for on Steam... Including some games for which I actually paid 59 € on Steam when I bought them shortly after released.

      Perhaps an unpopular opinion: TDM team might benefit from someone with actual QA experience; someone with naturally and professionally developed curiosity, who is interested in how and why things work, how they break At least to me it's kind of mind-boggling how untested some rather important features are (first the absence alert feature for items, now the rope +body carry behavior).

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.
