Digitally Distributed PC games ON SALE Thread

I just found out Steam is giving away Amnesia: The Dark Descent for free until 10am (Pacific) on Wednesday. My quest to find the Ultimate Strong One of horror games lives on! :zodd:

GTA4 is basically free today if you have Amazon Prime. You gotta sign up for a free trial of Twitch Prime through your Amazon account, link it, and then buy GTA4 from Amazon (specifically Amazon, not other vendors on there) and you'll get a $15 credit on your $14.99 purchase. Just ordered one for PS4, so I guess I'll finally be playing it.

This url has all the links if you're not sure about the process (as I wasn't):

It's still kinda tricky because even if you sign up through Amazon it'll funnel you to a Twitch login but you still need to do a separate Twitch sign up, etc.

Oh wow, thanks. Snagged it. BTW linking to Twitch Prime is a good idea in general, if you already have Prime. They give away several games each month for free.

There are tons of games on sale right now on steam until February 11 im getting the Witcher 3 game of the year edition for 14.99 and maybe Rainbow Six Siege for 9.99 also there is a deal of getting 5 dollars off a 30 dollar or higher purchase.

I'm tempted yet again to get that last Tomb Raider for half off, especially so I have something to play in the PC room (totally regret not getting RE2 on PC for that reason and will now only buy PS4 exclusives on PS4... at least until I see how Sekiro runs on my rig =).

That's more than the 45 minutes I gave it! To be fair, the game probably only actually let me play for 10 minutes and it was shitty tutorials, so there's lots of blame to go around. I mean, if you have to put in 20 hours just to get into a game, is it your fault? Resident Evil 7 was one of my favorite games last year, and I think I played it for 12 hours. It took me 11 hours to beat Bioshock Infinite yet it loomed plenty large. I love a game I can get lost in for a hundred hours as much as the next guy, but if it's NOT that game for me I'd much prefer an economical 10-20 hour campaign and then I can decide if I want to go crazy and play it forever. I've put at least 25 hours into the new RE2, but spread across various campaigns.

I'm thinking about doing that as well Mainly because Pc has a lot of deals for games and can run those games better; I kinda wish exclusives weren't a thing I want to play the last of us 2/uncharted 4 with maxed out settings :judo:

Well, I hope cyberpunk 2077 doesn't give you guys a bad experience as the Witcher 3 did.

At the time, I didn't have anything else on my radar so I decided to give it more than my usual allotment. The combat was weak, but I was interested in the story. All of the sudden, though, I just stopped caring.

Decided not to get Witcher 3 instead I got Max Payne 3, and Rainbow six siege standard edition. Also, the deal might still be going on for a short while so to those that have not got anything yet you still have an opening.

I signed up for the Microsoft PC Game Pass since I already have an account and its just $1 for the first month, and we'll see if it's worth it beyond that.

Some more details, and if all the games listed here are readily available, it may very well be more than worth it:

That is a stellar lineup
Yep, here's the whole thing:

I'm trying to fire up Sea of Thieves now. I wish I hadn't bought so many of these on sale already, but if they keep updating it with AAA titles and indies I'm interested in, but not enough to buy at launch/full price, this could continue to be very cool.

Is the PC app working for you, Griffith? Mine says it's not ready.
Hmmm, I'm able to download but haven't I'll tried launching. I'll let you know.

Update: Yeah, I was able to download and launch Hello Neighbor.

Another update: Okay, now it's not letting me install new games. Maybe I need to restart the program unless we're limited to how many we can have at once.
