Twitch/Amazon free PC games

Post by Jag » Tue Jul 03, 2018 9:00 am

If you have Amazon Prime you get free Twitch Prime. Twitch is a streaming service, but they give away some good stuff, including games and skins for Fortnite, etc. They had some decent free stuff that I had on my Steam wishlist. As far as Prime, if you don't want to pay full price and have access to an .edu account, you can get half price student Prime. Which is pretty much the same.

This month's games are pretty amazing for the low price of free. May be worth a monthly update.

Brutal Legend: July 14th — July 27th
Jump into this heavy metal action adventure RPS mashup featuring voices from rock legends like Ozzy Ozbourne and Rob Halford. You’ll take control of “The Chosen One” to battle through hordes of demons as you fight to save humanity.
Definitely recommended for anyone who hasn't played this game yet. For free it's a no brainer.

Tyranny: July 16th — July 18th
Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, Tyranny is a narrative focused RPG that will change based on the decisions you make while playing. You will make allies, choose sides and fight for your own brand of justice in an incredibly immersive world.
Just bought from Steam. :grund:

makes me wonder if they're going to eventually make the "Twitch marketplace" a Steam competitor. i don't know of any other digital storefront that could compete with Amazon's briberyfinancial backing.

Framed is a fantastic game - I played it when it first came out on iOS a few years ago. So unique.

Twitch is giving away games again in August.
Jotun: Valhalla Edition
Jotun is a beautifully illustrated action-exploration game themed around Norse mythology. You play as the viking warrior Thora who must prove herself to the Gods after dying an inglorious death. Only then will she be allowed to enter Valhalla.
Death Squared
Put your teamwork (and friendships) to the test as you try and solve puzzles in this cooperative puzzle game! Each player must take control of a robot and guide it to it’s color-coded goal. If only it were that easy…
Antihero
A turn-based strategy game where you must use your wits to out-steal and outsmart your opponents in a chaotically paced multiplayer game. Get ready to assassinate, blackmail and bribe your way to victory!
Wizardry Bundle
Play through Wizardry 6, 7, and 8, and bring together the 3 artifacts needed to pursue godhood in the world of Dominus. Once you have assembled all 3 artifacts you must venture forth to Ascension Peak where true terror awaits.
Steamworld Dig
A platforming mining adventure, highly influenced by “metroidvania” style games. Play as Rusty as you dig your way through the earth and collect riches along the way. Just beware of the ominous threat that lurks below…

If you are looking to play any of the Wizardry titles, note that only 8 has been redone/remastered for modern machines. I tried playing 7 the other day, and while I loved that game when it came out, it did not age well (I don't know of any game made at that time that did) in terms of playability/graphics and UI.

Wiz 8 however, is fantastic, looks and plays great, and I plan to play it through for the 3rd (and last time). Anyone that hasn't played it and is considering: VERY tough, grindy, old school party based RPG, but IMO one of, if not the best of the genre. Absolutely love that game. As a kind of time stamp for the game: this is one of those where you will spend AT LEAST an hour or more, just creating your party. :D

And Prime preorders are no longer 20% off at that time, although you get a $10 credit.

With all of the games I have, Twitch has still managed in the past few months to give me 16 games I didn't have in Steam, several of which were on my wish list to buy. That's so weird to me.
