QUBE 2 is now available as well. I enjoyed it much more than the original. Has a strong Portal vibe.

I must say, the free offers from Amazon and Epic seem to be diverging more and more by the month. One platform's giveaways are getting crappier, while the other's seems to be getting better (subjective I guess).

Which is which? I seriously can't tell which is getting better and which is getting worse, they are both releasing stuff I have no interest in.

For me and my tastes at least, Epic has been releasing noticeably better (also, more AAA type titles, if a little old) games than Amazon, which started off that way, but recently seems to be just shoveling more indieware stuff (which I LOVE, IF it's good). Also referring to how the games being released peg on review charts/Metacritic scores, etc.

A recent-ish comparison of Metacritic scores between the games given away by both, are pretty significantly far apart.

I refuse to tell you how I know this, lest I embarrass myself by revealing my crazy OCD tendencies. :D

FYI: Apparently, the library of games aren't in twitch anymore, they're stored in a separate Amazon app.

We have a prime account currently, so I grabbed Turmoil (and a few others).

2 questions I am hoping one of you kind souls can answer -
1 - what happens when we stop subbing to prime?
2- is the twitch/prime interface really just a web page, no active launcher like Steam and most others?

1) you get to keep all titles already downloaded
2) i haven't tried starting games outside of the 'launcher'

My twitch game library is starting to rival my Epic library... another collection of games I will likely never touch. Regardless, thanks for the reminder to add them to that collection.

Void Bastards gets a strong recommendation from me. I've played it twice now and love it.
