In reality.....I, and I figure most of us, have a majority of those games anyway.
I was just feigning being upset that I couldn't trust something that was posted on the internet.......it happens so infrequently.....

I only own Borderlands 3. Was really hoping for the Witcher 3 as I've heard good things about it. Oh well.

Tomorrow they're giving away unopened, boxed copies of vanilla WoW: Collector's Edition and a T206 Honus Wagner.

Witcher 3 GOTY edition (with all the DLC) was marked down to $11 during the Steam Autumn sale. I expect we'll see similar for the holiday sale.

I do, and was only personally interested in one or two. I was excited for my son, though, who would have loved to play through a few of those.

Well, I did say it was a rumour, and I saw articles about it on two different gaming sites so apparently some people must have thought it plausible enough. With them having given away GTA V and a brand new Total War game recently I guess all bets were off. Anyway, I suppose this list seems more credible.

Yeah. I copied it from elsewhere and discovered that evidently this messageboard doesn't resize images.

No worries. I believe it resizes based on width only. We do have the bigimg tag.

Far Cry 5 Gold for $<9 bucks (with coupon) is hard to beat. Of course, I have to play 4 and Primal first.

Alien: Isolation is free today and to go along with that, here is an article from PCGamesN originally published in 2014, How Creative Assembly designed Alien: Isolation’s terrifyingly clever xenomorph

Excerpt:
Alien: Isolation burst out of Creative Assembly’s chest yesterday, splattering previews all over the internet and making us spill our collective cereal — here is my Alien: Isolation preview, in case you’re interested in finding out more. The game plays, in the parts we’ve been shown at least, like Amnesia in space, with only a solitary, highly intelligent and free-roaming xenomorph forming the game’s horror centrepiece.

Gary Napper, lead designer at Creative Assembly, and Jude Bond, lead artist, spoke to me about how to create a truly terrifying artificial intelligence, what they thought of recent games in the franchise and how Alien: Isolation hopes to sustain a level of tension from start to finish that doesn’t result in heart-stopping fatalities. Come have a look at the words we said to one another.

Well, I foolishly forgot to grab the games the last few days. Shame, cause some of them are on my wishlist. But I've gotten so many games so not a huge deal.

GC3 by itself is good, but needs some of the DLC to really have the best experience. And I don't even see the Retribution and Crusade DLC being available on the Epic store.
