    This week on Epic: Insurmountable and X-Com 2 (remake)

    [h1]Insurmountable[/h1]
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/insurmountable-b02c31


    [h1]X-Com 2[/h1] (remake, not TFTD)
    The base game for the X-Com Reboot, X-Com 2 is available at Epic. It seems they are doing this as a loss leader for the expansions, which are not yet available on Epic but "coming soon" even though they have been on GoG and Steam for years.
    I'm a bit miffed, I just got X-com 2 when it was on sale back in February from GoG as a birthday treat to myself, and now they are giving it away for free, even though Epic has online-only DRM.
    It's a great game, people who like Jagged Alliance, Front Mission, Rainbow, Silent Storm, or the Battletech game will enjoy it. Again, no "War of the Chosen" or the DLC expansion packs, those cost extra.

    "The Wild Eternal" is free on Steam, it MIGHT be a permanent freebee. Never heard of the game before.

    Also I noticed that on Epic if you search for games with a price of "free" you get more options than if you click on the "free games" link prominently displayed on the store page.

    Postal 2 is free for 24 hours on GoG!
    Be warned, the game is very off-color. Nothing really sexual, but senseless violence and morally questionable stuff is in it. A bit of a fun shooter and great for stress release by "going postal" on a small town if you wish.
    Includes the first two expansions. I've had the base game for 15 years, it would have been nice to have back in the '90s when I was in high school for stress release.
    That said, you don't have to go nuts, you play as a down-on-his-luck guy who is trying to get through his daily chores in a place that makes the wild west look tame. Along the way he accidentally manages to anger a bunch of hate groups and terrorists by being in the wrong place at the wrong time while defending himself from their mayhem. After each event said hate groups start attacking him on sight. It has some rather crude humor and is rather juvenile, but fun if you don't take it too seriously. It does do some stereotyping however and is very politically incorrect.

    It bears mentioning that Bethesda is getting rid of its extra DRM layer and moving its games back to Steam. In light of that, Elder Scrolls: Arena and Daggerfall are now available for free, as well as the original Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

    Arena and Daggerfall have been available for free for years, I'm pretty sure I mentioned it much earlier in this thread and I think there was another thread about it in "The Playground" some years back.
    That said, they seem to have vanished from GoG's catalog. I'm not sure why.
    I think Arena was released for free when Oblivion came out, and Daggerfall was released when Skyrim came out.


    P.S. Another thread mentions this game that just sounds weird. It is for Windows, Mac, and Linux

    As I remember, they removed the games from GOG and Steam when Bethesda decided they were gonna have their own launcher and sell everything through their own store.

    They recently realized that was a dumb move and have decided to remove the launcher and move the games back to Steam. GOG will most likely renegotiate their deal with them soon as well.

    It's worth mentioning that Bethesda did the HUGE favor of releasing daggerfall without fixing a critical bug that could stop you from reaching the end of the game. ;)

    Nice move from Bethesda. :p

    This week on Epic, another double-feature, plus I noticed a couple quite new releases on the "free games" page. However, reflecting the trend in retail stores of "don't put all the similar products in one place so the customer can look at them all at once", I noticed there are several games listed by selecting "browse" and setting the price to "free" that are NOT on the list you get when you click on "free games" in the store page. An example is "Armored Warfare"
    Compare this:
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/b...Dir=DESC&priceTier=tierFree&count=40&start=40
    to this:
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/free-games
    Anyways, this week is "Just Die Already" and "Paradigm", along with "Space Punks (open beta)" and "Pinball FX" is once again free, this time possibly semi-permanently.

    You know, I forgot to check the GoG links and I missed some stuff yesterday. I wish they allowed for e-mail alerts.
