Current FREE Games Promotions
RULES (Please?):

  • Game discounts, as opposed to FREE titles, go in the other thread dedicated to that purpose.
  • Include the name of the game in question, and a link to the source (if possible)
  • If the promotion expires, include the expiry date if known.
  • Strike out dead entries when you become aware of them, and a mod/admin will remove them.
  • Feel free to post when games become F2P, but these posts will be removed periodically (after a few weeks).
  • Commentary is fine, but will be removed when the thread is periodically pruned.  Commentary of value (tech support, etc) will be split out.  Please try to keep unnecessary commentary out entirely - start a new discussion topic instead.

I'll prune the thread periodically, but other moderators are welcome to help out as well.  We're going to try to keep this to a single page topic.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
EPIC is really upping their game to get store buy-in these days.  The free titles they've given away have been really stellar.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
And yet I still don't plan on ever bothering to install their software, even if I will snap up the games because why not I guess.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Well it's going to be annoying to get those games onto your computer without the software.  I can definitely reassure you that the software is OK, and is not spying on you.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
I mean I already own the majority of them on Steam, and any I don't that I'd legitimately want to play I'll probably just buy there anyway.

Freespace 2 is free on GOG for the next ~41 hours (until Sept 27 12pm GMT?)

https://www.gog.com/game/freespace_2

I assume most people here have it already, but hey, it's free and you cannot have too many copies of a great game.

I had one of these.  As long as it was a surface scratch on the bottom (ie, label side was undamaged) they actually worked, too, unlike some of the solutions of that day.  Just spritz a thin film of distilled water from the included spray bottle on the disc surface, crank for a complete turn, and presto! Good as new (usually - sometimes you had to do a few more resurfacing passes if the scratches were deeper).  Link goes to Amazon, just in case anyone needs one for whatever reason.:

Princess Remedy 2 (whatever that is) free on Steam.

 
Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Based solely on the title, it sounds like a game about guillotining royals and aristocrats.  Somehow I doubt it's anything quite so cathartic, though.

I didn't think of something so bloodthirsty, my first thought was that film where the princess kisses the frog which turns her into a frog herself.

I looked it up and it isn't the princess that needs saving, she is the one saving people from illnesses.
