I played it when I drunkenly badgered Mr Dave into buying it and was very buggy and unfinished.

I've corrected that for you.

I thought I bought it for you, or was that My Summer Car? That was somehow worse.


You got me My Summer Car. Which bugged out and locked me into the toilet until i pissed myself and starved to death.

Obduction (spiritual sequel to Myst and Riven and made by the same devs) is free on GOG right now:

https://www.gog.com/game/obduction

I suspect I'll just get confused almost instantly by it but I'm hoping it'll be atmospheric enough to justify a wander around it's world.

Fucking hell, that's a stupid amount of DLC! And it reminds me that I own Borderlands 2 and loads of the DLC from a Humble Bundle a while back. Maybe I should play it some day...

That’s confusing if you don’t know both of us. Let’s simplify it by saying it’s free as in June’s issue of Pedant Monthly when you’ve bought a 12-month subscription free, not free as in I bought two copies of June’s issue of Pedant Monthly would you like my spare one free.

But you might expect a favour in return so not really free

It's potentially still worth doing if you've got a Pro and a 1080p TV because the higher res textures will be downsampled, not sure what performance hit you might get from that though.

You're right about the Pro but: "they’re best enjoyed on 4K displays, but also offer some improvements at lower resolutions."

Yeah, the £35 voucher on CDKeys is by far the best value for money, which is a little odd.

Not complaining, though.

Ta.

I got it, downloaded it, tried it for 15 minutes, quit. Way too complex with a terrible ui for me to bother trying to learn it at this stage, i'm too old and impatient for that shit.
I'm sure it's great if you have been playing the previous variants for years, but not for me.

Fez is currently free on the Epic Store, which isn't all that interesting. What is potentially more interesting is that from Thursday onwards the free gamess are Celeste and Inside. The former seems to be adored by pretty much everyone that's played it and if you're one of the lunatics that still hasn't played Inside then you'll have no excuse not to sort that out.

You’ll get fed up with Celeste very quickly if our effort at Towerfall is anything to go by.
