    Humble.

    When I first tried to get the game it came up with an error instead of claimed.

    It said to retry and I did, and then apparently I already own the game.

    Apparently it refreshes everytime I go to the link. No email btw.

    You might want to contact them then, preferably before the offer ends just in case they run out.

    Eh, I'm not really too interest in it so I might not go through the trouble of customer support to get it.

    If it happens with the next free game then I would because that means there's a problem.

    Huh, tried it again this time without my adblock and it went through. Don't know the reason or whatever but I'm not going to question it.

    For those ps4 owners. apparently square is giving away the standard ff14 edition for free.

    I'm not getting it myself because I'm not planning on getting a ps4. Ever.

    Assuming this key is still available would it be possible for me to receive it.

    Yo, you still got Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation + Epic map pack + Turtle Wars DLC? I only just spotted that in your list.

    Total Annilation commander pack free on GOG for the next 48 hours.

    Wonder if I ever play it, it would tell me what all the fuss about is from those SIs.

    As someone who's played it, I honestly thought Supreme Commander was better. Though to be fair, that's less a statement about how Total Annihilation is bad, and more a statement about how when the devs started working on Supreme Commander, they basically took everything that was already fantastic about TA and managed to improve on it even further to push the limits of available hardware at the time. TA is still pretty great, it's just been overshadowed by SupCom. Both of them are better than Planetary Annihilation though.

    Having said that though, TA's soundtrack still holds up as one of the best video game OSTs ever created.

    Agreed. TA was what inspired Supreme Commander in the first place; SupCom is basically a remake with it with even more features, units, and cool shit.

    Even back when TA was made, though, it still had a ton of pretty kickass features in comparison to other RTSes- bullets had trajectory, and would actually impact on hills if they were in the way, you could have units queue up complex order paths (move here, then there, then start patrolling these two points), etc. When units explode, their parts legitimately fly everywhere dynamically, instead of a static death animation.

    The economy system is pretty unique, being limitless and exponential; whereas in Starcraft/Warcraft late game the map runs out of resources, that just doesn't happen in TA. Also, resource consumption is done in real-time. If you order something built, instead of up-front costs, it's a steady drain relative to the progress, and if you stretch yourself too thin your construction will slow down.
    A lot different than most other RTSes of the time.

    As for what the fuss is about, basically wanking with biggatons and exponential growth, since the lore is about factions with basically ex-nihilo resource generation that have demonstrated the ability to construct planets of metal and true Jupiter-brains. Oh, and cloning with each clone having full memories.

    The lore was kinda silly, basically Singularity comes about and humans are mandated to upload their minds to machine, abandoning flesh. Some folks didn't want to. Humanity-that-became-machine is the Core, and the flesh and blood humans are the Arm.
    The two factions basically fought for a thousand years til the events of the game which is a pretty generic story about blah blah doing some battles and turning the tide.


    Forest Green is the best goddamn theme and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.

    I like Hitman, but.. isn't that the worst version of Hitman? At least story-wise.

    On the other hand, it's free. Hm.

    It may be free, but its still not going on my account.

    Same with For Honor, which has been offered for free about half a dozen times, although in that case it's because it's not only not a kind of gameplay I don't like but it's also a plain shit game.

    Injustice I just don't like the core gameplay. Never liked MK style fighting games.

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/322500/SUPERHOT/

    SUPERHOT is getting a sequel called MIND CONTROL DELETE.

    If you buy the first game (currently on sale for ten bucks), then you'll get the sequel for free.

    Not exactly 'free stuff', but the game needs to be purchased within the next eight hours before MCD releases, or you won't get the deal and I don't know where else to post to let people know.

    Anyone want Undertale?

    I got it a while back in a Humble Bundle, but I never redeemed it.

    Just noticed it. (Steam Key)

    It has been three goddamn years, but I now have an extra code for 140 because of the current Double Fine humble bundle sale.

    Three years, and I remembered somebody in this thread wanted it, and I was an asshole that had already activated it.

    You still want it, Angel?
