    Found a new free gaming thread, although this one seems more focused on consoles with the occasional Steam offer.
    https://www.cheapassgamer.com/forum...ort_by=Z-A&sort_key=last_post&topicfilter=all


    Today on Epic
    Costume Quest 2
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/costume-quest-2
    Seems they should have done this one back in late October rather than in December.
    There are a couple of posts on SB and GoG that it is supposed to be a good JRPG. I never heard of it or the original and I'm trying to figure out how to free up 100gb so I can finally put Win11 on my machine, so it may be a while before I try it.


    I also want to remind people that there are more free games on epic than are featured here:
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/free-games
    If you look at the top of the above link, click on "browse"
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/browse
    Then look under the right under "filters" and click "free". Then check "game" and "game edition" and make sure demos is unchecked and look what comes up. You might also want to check "apps" as well, or check it with the games unticked.

    Plea for help.
    If anybody wants to repay me for keeping this list going, I'd appreciate it if somebody who knows CSS could make a Stylus/Stylish stylesheet that can automatically make the "show more" on Epic games visible, and another one for IndieGala to automatically unfold the "System Requirements". If Stylus won't cut it, I suppose a Greasemonkey script would work too.
    Either that, or give me a quick lesson on how I could create my own stylesheets for similar websites that hide stuff like that in those annoying ways.

    Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/fallout
    This game plays very similar to a fusion of Baldur's Gate or Icewind Dale and Jagged Alliance or X-Com (original, TFTD, & Apocalypse, less so the remake) with a story and setting that's more along the lines of Wasteland and was indeed intended to be a spiritual successor to the original 1980's Wasteland since they couldn't get the rights at the time. If you liked any of those games you'll probably like this.
    The game is a contemporary of Baldur's Gate, hence the low system requirements. I can confirm the CD-ROM version worked on a 300mhz Win98 laptop with 96mb of RAM.


    Fallout 2: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/fallout-2
    I'd say this lives up to its predecessor, but unlike BG2 being better than BG1, I'd say they are both equal.


    Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/fallout-tactics-brotherhood-of-steel
    I haven't actually gotten to play this, so it's probably next on my play list.


    NORCO Goodie Pack
    https://www.gog.com/game/norco_goodie_pack?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549
    This isn't actually a game, just a bunch of extras. The digital equivalent of "feelies" they used to enclose in game boxes.

    Well, the Fallout giveaway is over. Today has several things.
    Today on Epic:


    Encased
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/encased
    I can't figure out if this is an action-RPG or something similar to X-com. I hope it's the latter. I grabbed it since it's free, but I wanted to give Fallout Tactics a try and I haven't tried it yet. Could somebody comment?

    Pixel Puzzles 2: Christmas
    https://freebies.indiegala.com/pixel-puzzles-2-christmas

    System requirements seem kinda high considering I had something similar to this on my Apple IIGS only without the Christmas theme, and the earliest Macs came with a "Jigsaw Puzzle" Desk Accessory that continued to be bundled with Macs through at least Mac OS 9.2.

    https://www.gog.com/game/greak_memories_of_azur?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549
    Winterlore tales for free
    https://itch.io/s/86875/winterlore-tales-for-free
    Happy Holidays! Christmas is a special time, and each household has its own tradition: some put hay beneath the tablecloth, some eat an odd number of dishes, most go Carol singing. But we all have the same love for unwrapping presents from our loved ones. So, this gift-giving season, Winterlore is free to play for the whole month.

    ❄️ ❄️ Happy winter everyone! ❄️ ❄️

    Merry Christmas.
    Today on Epic, if you missed it last year in Feb2021 is "Metro: Last Light Redux"
    Metro: Last Light Redux
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/metro-last-light-redux
    Also, I apologize for a glitch when posting yesterday due to a typo in the BBCode. If you missed it last year or last June, the Winterlore games are free again until the 27th. Apparently they have been free for all of December. See the previous post for more.

    Merry Christmas.
    Today on Epic:
    DEATH STRANDING
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/death-stranding
    Apparently there was a glitch and those who were quick and checked in the first hour got the director's cut with all the DLC before somebody noticed and changed it.
    Anyways, here's the summary of the base game:

    Epic is still doing the daily giveaway, I think until the end of the year. Today is

    I don't have much time, but these are kinda time sensitive, so I'll flush this out later in about four hours. Here's the summary.


    Severed Steel
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/severed-steel
    Also a free artbook if you wan it, but you have to get it separately or add both to your cart and check out.

    Worms Revolution Gold Edition
    https://www.gog.com/en/game/worms_revolution?pp=632667547e7cd3e0466547863e1207a8c0c0c549


    Holiday Bonus GOLD
    https://freebies.indiegala.com/holiday-bonus-gold
    You might want to pass on this one. I had one family member who normally isn't fond of video games get extremely addicted to this for months last year. You might wind up the same way.

    Well, today is the last of the daily giveaways. Actually technically they are over, you have until the 5th for these.
    They did do a double-feature however.


    Dishonored - Definitive Edition
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/dishonored-definitive-edition
    Apparently the sequel is free for Amazon Prime users, and if you sign up for the trial you can get the DRM-Free GoG version, so you can keep it after the trial ends.
    https://gaming.amazon.com/loot/dishonored2?ingress=amzn&ref_=SM_D2F_P1_CRWN
    It's not my genre so I haven't done so, but I'm putting it out there.


    Eximius: Seize the Frontline
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/eximius-seize-the-frontline


    Giveaway of the day — All-In-One Key Finder Pro Personal 2022
    https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/all-in-one-key-finder-pro-2022/#
    Useful if you lost your Windows or Office product keys and need to reinstall or want to install on another computer.
    Always check you still have those keys and not stored on your hard drive but externally, and if they are missing you can run this.

    Kerbal Space Program
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/kerbal-space-program
    I'm pretty sure this had an open beta or they allowed a very early beta for free because I remember downloading it for free, but didn't reinstall after a hard drive crash.

    This is simulator program that simulates a space program for an alien race. It could be considered Edutainment because it uses real physics in the game and you the player learn about orbital mechanics while playing. It was highly recommended some years back.

    IndieGala apparently has a few more giveways listed in a nonstandard place.
    Just found this by change on IndieGala:
    2Dark
    Adventures of Shuggy
    Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story
    Back to Bed
    Cubicle Quest
    Daily Chthonicle: Editor's Edition
    Deponia
    Dreaming Sarah
    The Fan
    Grottesco Absurdus#
    Land It Rocket
    Mahjong "Strip" Solitaire
    Planet of Mubu
    Puzzle Chambers
    Winexy

    Also a game similar to Civilization or Colonization has finally given the full release instead of a beta.

    Several things to report:
    [/indent][/list]


    galaFreebies
    Some of the Gala Freebies might have errors due to special characters.
    A user on another forum found a work-around:
    This works for other ones as well.


    Divine Knockout is a repeat from Dec 10-14, so I'm going to be lazy and just link to my old description instead of retyping it.
    https://sorcerers.net/community/thr...epic-store-and-more.88418/page-15#post-854632

    Download the game here:

    First Class Trouble
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/first-class-trouble
    This seems like a rip-off of "Among Us" with better graphics and a few twists.


    Gamedec - Definitive Edition
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/gamedec
    DLC:
    1. https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/gamedec--characters-bundle
    2. https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/gamedec--the-official-guidebook
    Looks like the only single player game this week, and an RPG! I haven't tried it, but I will. I wonder if I should have posted it. It isn't like there are any fans of cRPGs here on SP :-D.

    Steam has made "Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle" free to play, but you need to grab it quickly because the license is expiring on the 23rd. Apparently if you grab it before then you can keep it.
    Link to game:
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/795100/Friday_the_13th_Killer_Puzzle/
    Make sure to grab all the free DLC separately

    If you missed it last year, "Alone on Mars" is free again on IndieGala.
    https://freebies.indiegala.com/alone-on-mars
    All of the winter and holiday offers are off the freebies page.
    Just click on the link to last years offering for the description:
    https://sorcerers.net/community/thr...-epic-store-and-more.88418/page-7#post-852015

    I imagine that Nostradamus will be the next to be removed from the freebies page.


    Also they have "Last Horizon" repeating as well.
