Yeah, thanks... I used to follow a similar site, but they either stopped updating or I stopped paying attention for some reason. There also used to be a good Steam group for bundles, but then offers started getting so watered down it was a chore to keep up.

If it helps, I use

https://gamesfree.today/

which sends me an email when there's new free games available. If you sign up specifically for "Important" deals, you'll just get the good stuff.
Thanx for the link. I'll keep checking here but I've bookmarked this for future reference.

Holy molex. The rumour mill is apparently saying Epic wants to be your BFF this Christmas. If even half of these are true, I'd say they have a decent chance of succeeding, although with the way everybody else has hecked up hardware and game launches lately it's not like they have a great deal of competition.

Said it before, I'll say it again........I should just stop buying games at all.
Just bought AC:Origins for what I thought was a good price, but nothing is better than free.

I own and or have finished almost all of those. But I would like Zero Dawn on PC badly and Borderlands 3.

Holy crab, those are some obscenely good/popular/recent titles....

I have to assume the DLC-laden ones don't include DLC, otherwise I'll be kicking myself for having purchased FO4 GOTY recently and not having touched it yet.

So far that list is just a rumored leak. I wouldn't put too much stake in it until the games actually start showing up.

It does sound highly suspect. Last year's list was mostly high-profile indies. The leaked list on the other hand has recent AAAs from EA, Zenimax, Ubisoft, etc.

Wait... this must be fake. Half these titles aren't even currently in the store. They don't seem to have EA and Zenimax stuff.

It's also a very narrow style of game. Triple-A action and RPGs.

I'd love it if a few of those were on there (although I have a good chunk of them) rather than all indies that don't really appeal to me, but it doesn't seem likely.

Epic really seem to embrace the give the base game away when there is a lot of paid DLC model. I actually accept that model. I'm not a fan of Paid DLC but if you base game for free then the DLC becomes a sort of subscription service. If you like the game, pay for it to get more better. The base games ends up as a sort of demo.

Just picked up Jedi: Fallen Order for $13.99 by using my coupon. I believe that's a historical low.

Just to make sure: all these games are free only for their PC version, right? Or could I snag them for a console as well?

Those are free on Steam as well. I believe that to be their natural state.

i believe posting the free DLC with any new free titles announced would be helpful for everyone, since they tend to be overlooked

Heck, I just realized I already own Subnautica: Sub Zero on Epic and I can't even remember buying it or getting it free. I could look it up, but I'm busy right now :coffee:

For clarification, I am talking about Subnautica: Sub Zero, which is a different game.

UPDATE: Turns out I bought it months ago using a $10 coupon.

Today's is Oddworld: Free & Tasty.

Think we can pretty safely ignore the list above at this point.
