Destiny 2 is Free Until November 18th, So I’m Free to Ramble About it

Right now, as I type, Destiny 2, the base game at least, is free via Battle.net, not long after being part of a Humble Bundle monthly deal for €12 and was free on Playstation Plus in September. You get it from Battle.net before November 18th, it’s yours forever. Which makes it the perfect distraction while people wait for any news on Borderlands 3. You notice I didn’t say Fortuna. Because I have to reiterate this: Destiny is nothing like Warframe, apart from the batshit crazy story and the space ships across the solar system. Nope, this is Borderlands except very… [Continue Reading]

Get Galactic Civilizations II for FREE on Humble Bundle

I know you all love free games, so it’s almost my duty to let you know about them. Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition is currently available for free via the Humble Bundle store. Yeah I know it’s free advertising for them but not everyone’s subscribed to emails from Humble Bundle and GoG and all that, and I wouldn’t want people to miss out on free games. What is Galactic Civilizations II (or Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, which is its full title)? According to the Humble Bundle page, it’s a PC strategy game based around exploring and conquering a galaxy,… [Continue Reading]

Well now you can! Half-Life comes bundled within Sven Co-op, a free-to-play GoldSrc mod available on Steam.

Half-Life: C.A.G.E.D.

A free Half-Life mod with a single player campaign by an ex-Valve developer? Why, yes please. Though it should really be called “C.A.G.E.D. – A Half-Life Mod” considering it has nothing to do with the world of Half-Life, it just shares the engine and models of the original. Some point through the game I noticed this and felt a tinge of disappointment but I wanted to reach the end and judge it accordingly on its own merit. The basic premise is that you’re locked up for some unspecified crime and you prefer the view from the outside of the bars,… [Continue Reading]

Shadow Warrior free on Humble Bundle until July 23rd

Shadow Warrior: Special Edition is currently 100% absolutely free on Humble Bundle for the next day or so, and you can get it here. As well as the base game, you also get the official Shadow Warrior soundtrack, a digital art book and two unique weapons – a Serious Sam 3 sledgehammer and a Hotline Miami katana. It’s a first person shooter and hack-and-slash game with a somewhat loud-mouthed, over-excited protagonist, if the trailer is to be believed. The game appears to have that Serious Sam vibe, with a pinch of Saints Row style over the top gangstas evil corporations,… [Continue Reading]

Outland Free on Steam Until June 8th!

Thanks to MysticTheMeemM for finding this one! Outland is a third-person platformer where the player “uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos”, to quote the Steam page. I haven’t played it, I’m actually at work and this article is more of a thought experiment to see if I can successfully write and publish an article entirely from my smart phone during my lunch break. Hope you get your money’s worth! Related posts: Saints Row 2 is Free For One Day! Shadow Warrior free on Humble Bundle until July 23rd… [Continue Reading]

Saints Row 2 is Free For One Day!

If you’ve ever wanted to play the best game in the Saints Row series, now’s your chance! GOG.com and Steam having a free giveaway today only! The comments section seems to say that the GOG version is more stable than the Steam version, which I certainly hope because the Steam version is among the worst PC ports I’ve ever played in my life. But it’s free, so you don’t really lose anything by grabbing it, and if it does work you’ll get the chance to play my personal favorite sandbox game of all time. Stilwater is bursting with personality, the combat… [Continue Reading]

Last Day to get Fractured Space free on Steam!

Do you like space combat games? Or do you just like getting free games that other people will have to spend money on? Well, Fractured Space has been free to download for the last two days, and if you get it before the free weekend ends, you get to keep it forever! Fractured Space combines the frantic fast-paced combat of a shooter with the global forward-thinking elements of a real-time strategy. In the one game I played, the strategy mostly manifested in a guy named Nanda cursing endlessly at his team of level 1 captains who wouldn’t leave home base. I’m… [Continue Reading]
