Ugh. EA and Origin keep being nice, which is really screwing with that whole “EA is teh devil-company” idea for me… In this latest incident of doing something cool, Wing Commander 3: Heart of the Tiger is free on Origin until 16 September 2014, as part of their On the House thingy. So, y’know, go git a game for nuthin’.
Redeem it on their site or through the Origin application, the choice is yours. Just do it, because it’s free and everyone knows gamers can’t resist freebies.
Hmm, perhaps I shoulda wrote the opening sentences with an “EA hopes to cash in on Star Citizen’s popularity” sorta spin, that’d feed the devil-company idea…
GamersGate, some online store I haven’t used before but likely will today, is having themselves a great big Summer Sale Reloaded and a whole lotta Ubisoft games have been well discounted for the next 61 hours. So, y’know, heads up ‘n stuff.
Myself, I’m looking to pick up Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition (75% off), Tom Clancy’s End War (75% off), the AC III Season Pass (75% off), AC IV Black Flag (33% off), and/or AC Freedom Cry (33% off). There are a lot more available, too. Thus far my experience with the site has been pretty positive and I rather like the profile achievements and minion thing they have going on. I’ve yet to buy anything but I’ll update here once I have.
The sequel to 2013’s rebooted Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, was revealed at E3. Gamescom brought forth more information, in the form of (timed) platform exclusivity.
So what did Gamescom have in store for Evolve, the 4v1 monster-hunting game in development by Turtle Rock Studios (the chaps behind Left 4 Dead) and which is looking set to be monstrously fun? Make the jump to find out.
Hmm. I’m treading dangerously close to establishing a trend of only ever posting on here about free stuff. Which is great and all, because free stuff (obviously), but, y’know, doesn’t exactly hit the “credible original content” mark that I have sorta-intentions of hitting.
A sweet little side-scrolling action title by the name of The Expendabros was recently released with extra Freedom. That is, it’s actually free. So you should look past the validity of my claims regarding the title’s “sweetness” (because I haven’t played it or the previous title that it’s based on, so I really have absolutely no idea what it tastes like), and just get on with acquiring a free game. Acquire it here, on The Expendabros‘ Steam page (or right through the Steam client, if, y’know, you’re not stuck in an office reading about things you’d rather be playing because work PCs and the frowned-upon idea of gaming on them). Oh, and it’ll be “available for download until December 31, 2014.” Read more of the rubbish I type about The Expendabros after the jump (there’s a trailer too).
