  1. The nostrils always looked like eyes to me.
  2. EDIT: Elicas has manifested his divine law so this topic is now stickied (I moved the original post as a normal comment). Therefore short mission statement: This thread is for links to games that are free at the moment. That means: PRIMARILY: - Games temporarily on 100% sale/marked as free. - Giveaways (officially sponsored ones, like the recent one with Witcher on Ars Technica, no threads from reddit where one guy gives out a code he got with a videocard or something) - When posting, say how much time is left (at least roughly in days) so people can figure out if they still have time. SECONDARILY: - Games that previously were for money, but got republished for free (should be fairly rare occurence, afaik this happened only to Torchlight and the odd game from early 2000s) RESTRICTIONS: - Proper games. No farmville-style shit! - ABSOLUTELY NO P2W MMOs (god knows there's 7 million of those and all are the same). - No games merely on sale. Even if it's 99%. Unless it's something like Witcher 3 or unless @Elicas decides it's a good idea.

    I'd play more of these mmos, but they're all insufferably full of japanfaggotry. PoE is just boring :v. Ah, you reminded me I should really buy the SoIaF books someday. You know I hate it when a book series gets worldwide recognition and gets adapted for normies. It sort of worked with LotR, thank god, but other things, like (to my endless chagrin) The Chronicles of Narnia got it really bad. What am I talking about? Well, it usually happens that after a series is picked up by some moving-picture-related medium, that there is a reprint of the books to comply with the mainstream. Which usually means they're printed in nicely digestible format, with large typeface, no more than 50 words per page, and somehow the book is now four times larger than it was previously, not to mention it's plastered all over by the absolutely disgusting photos from the movie. Allow The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe to illustrate. These are the various old covers (as well as teh absolute genius cover of the earlier Czech edition, which, unfortunately, happened only for the first two books): http://www.pbs.org/newshour/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/slideshow/9780060234812_3_slideshow.jpg https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/86/TheLionWitchWardrobe(1stEd).jpg http://blogs.slj.com/afuse8production/files/2012/06/LionWardrobe18.jpg https://www.databazeknih.cz/images_books/29_/29484/big_lev-carodejnice-a-skrin-OvQ-29484.jpg This is the post-moving one: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51kNb4-NUoL.jpg Bring me a bucket for I have a strong desire to vomit. Also in the comaprison to the Czech version, the new book managed to be about 8 times as thick and with at least twice of the front area. Perhaps the only redeeming quality is, that it's a hardcover. I got 456 hours on that thing but I never even gitten gud. Sounds like my "to play" game list. Cool, now backport everyquest and ackis to vanilla. And god protect you if you start the discssuion about everyquest by some nonsense about querying the quest db not being possible until wotlk. Nobody talks about that function when mentioning everyquest! It's a TBC addon! I am now judging you intensely with a fierce hate too untamed for words.
  4. Possibly green. Or maybe purple. Wait, don't people call it violet? All these balance changes, man.
  5. How the fuck do so many of you people not know this is a thing. Newfags, all of you!
  6. It's there from TBC, when Brewfest was added, at the very least.
  7. Tl;dr version: ...but how?
  8. Scrub, git gud. I'm impressed he made it in the end. Well, it's only 13 years to 2030 so I think CF will have shorter development time.
  9. Yo, what did you just call central Europe? Fite me 1 on 1 m8.
  10. That's over here for something roughly equivalent to 9 euro AND it's a physical version, to boot. Well now I doubt myself for not buying it.
  11. low pop dead server
  12. Not even... The Godfather in its game version? I admit, I only played the first Mafia, and since it's a Czech game and had original Czech dubbing, I am very biased :P.
  13. Story of my life. Of course, my first adventure at a university was my last, because those stupid college lodgings cost money. Which I didn't have. In fact, I went back home and had to start working. I am now apparently a programmer. Irony.
  14. Yea, I gave that warning a few comments higher :P.
  15. Well, ok, you got me. The focus there was on modern games. But yes, when you go a decade back, Ubisoft was making good things. The "Sands trilogy" Prince of Persia, Rayman (especially 3) and BG&E is one of the best games they ever made, bottom line. Thanks to Ancel. We'll see how BG&E2 pans out. If he was allowed to work on it properly and as he wanted, with a limited team of people who know what they're doing (I hope so, he's a director on it), or if it was picked up by corporate and will end up eaten by the "Ubisoft game" disease of collectibles, repetitive side missions and towers. Can't forget the towers. I do hope that it's gonna be done properly. As in, the game he originally wanted to make in BG&E. Just annoyed it'S a prequel. I don't really like those, and we're already getting another for a game that's laid dormant and in rights hell (Spellforce - though arguably in this case, at least the second game got an expansion or two by various developers).
  16. Oh damn, I remember this series that used to release in these parts, called "Gaming Selection" or something in that sense. It was one CD with about 30-40 games on it that wouldn't pass for an idie these days. Maybe for a web game. Half of them were made in flash and/or game maker anyway. Also yea, pirating was the only way to get anything. And you were lucky if you could burn it off the original game. Of course, you had to do the legwork - in an ideal case, the person with the game would bring it to school and you could borrow it. Otherwise you'd have to visit them! Eventually you'd end up with everyone having basically the same copy. We actually had Starcraft like this - no matter who you borrowed the burned CDs from, it was a copy where the last Terran mission and cinematic didn't work.
  17. From the time of WoD: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/blizzard-will-no-longer-report-world-of-warcraft-s/1100-6431943/ This is both laughable for what the statement really says (people jumped the ship, decreased numbers don't look good) and for what it implies with the "business performance" (Players? What players? I think you meant to say revenue!).
  18. TFW blizzard will never make such a game again. Warcraft III was one of the first games I ever played. Well, technically, HoM&M and Stronghold were first, but that wasn't my PC so whatever. WC3 was one of the four not-so-legal games that we got with our first PC. The other three were Rayman 3 (the last Rayman before rabbids and the implosion of the 3D series, so good), Monsters Inc. (crap, but a lot of fun back then) and Hepumia (bomberman clone with an elf, nice music and 8 or 9 levels - and this sold for 25 USD back then, kids). That's how my love for Blizzard started back then. Few years later I got hold of Diablo II and Starcraft and, well, I had a good time. Nobody seriously considered WoW back then, because only few people had internet. Of course, that changed eventually, but ever since then, Blizzard's been giving me new and inventive reasons why hate it. They forgot how to make games thanks to wow. And then the corporate takeover. Honestly the only good game they produced since WC3 is Wings of Liberty (and that's maybe because of my nostalgia), which is the only part of SC2 that feels like the original Starcraft. Terrans in their tin cans powered equally by nuclear fusion and gasoline, on the run from the law and getting eaten by every xeno around. Good times.
  19. @Sallerius Ah, the tragedy of missing good games because of what's effectively not a real game (repeat after me, kids: MMOs aren't real games).
  20. Depends on the quality. I saw Mafia III for less than Mafia II. Boxed versions, even. Though anything from Blizzard costs at least a dozen euros, even if it's 17 years old. Goddamn jews goblins. But yea, sales are nice. Especially when sites recount it to your local currency so you actually know what the price means. The other day there was Witcher 2 for less tan I spend on bus fare every day. Shame that wasn't with a box :v. Tell that to Buzzard :P.
  21. But seriously, my to-play list is grossly long and spans a bit more than two decades. Halp.
  22. What class?
  23. Protip: Don't play the modern AAA ones :P. Anything that has a series is suspicious. Probably gets dumbed down later. Don't play anything from Ubisoft unless it's Rayman and in that case, avoid anything if it has "rabbids" in the title. There's a lot of variously old one-offs that are surprisingly good for what they are. Usually from the times when every single game wasn't trying to have ALL of the features. It's almost like if sandbox-crafting-tower-collecting openworld games aren't the universal apex of fun :P.
  24. You can also play any of the thousands of other games :P.
