Free games

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. :)

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.

I like the Gershwin tune. I'll have to see about the game.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

      Hello, Since this track is originally from TDM,i think it's better to ask here than TTLG. Do you guys have the full version of this ambient track?

      Bachelor Mapping Challenge!
      The girlfriend will be away to her mum's place for almost a week, which means more mapping time for me! I'm planning a speed build. Hope it will go my way
      I'm starting by downloading 2.11. Don't know if I'm going to use any fancy new stuff. Just want to crack those itching map muscles that has gone dry and dead since almost a year's worth of no-mapping

      The cool part of Canonical's Snap, is that my machine can now ray-trace an entire (simple) scene faster than it takes the web browser to start!

      Fm idea (braindump)
      "Experience the life of a mission builder"
      Esentially there are finnished elements placed somewhere in storage in the game and you have to place them in the correct places, build some walls here and there, add guard routes, give them their correct speech lines, etc. Decorate the places.. all in-game. lots of fun.. 😉
      If you do it right in the end you can play the mission.
      (would be even cooler if a thief-ai could play the mission, making it some kind of tower-defence game)
      This first started as an idea for an aquarium builder mission where-in you have to fill an empty aquarium with sand, waterplants, castles water and swimming fish. But above idea is more fun.

      Dear ChatGPT, What are The Builders in the Dark Mod?
      The Builders is a popular game mode in the video game community called "Dark Mod," which is a fan-made tribute to the classic "Thief" series of stealth games. In this game mode, players assume the role of builders who construct structures in a dark and ominous environment while trying to avoid detection by patrolling guards.
      The Builders game mode is unique in that it offers players the opportunity to create and design their own levels using the in-game tools and resources provided. Players can experiment with different building materials, construct intricate traps and puzzles, and create their own unique gameplay experiences.
      While The Builders game mode is not an official part of the Dark Mod, it has become one of the most popular and well-loved aspects of the game, thanks to its emphasis on creativity, strategy, and stealth.
      You guys did not know that, did you?
