So my regularly occurring Something New posts on Sunday, I had been taking advantage of twice a month free games from EGS. I noticed during this sale that they were doing one every week. They’ve really put me in a spot now by announcing they’ll be doing it the rest fo the year.
Now, that’s not to say that this is a bad thing. I’ll gladly accept another 28 free games, though that was about half their library last I checked and I’m curious how they intend to deal with that. I personally expect that we’ll see some repeats by the end of the year.
What it means for me, though, is that I can be a little more particular about which one I cover, if I wish, though the original point was to get caught up and cover the game that was actually still free, in case anyone wanted to check it out. That means I have to download, play, and write between Thursday afternoon and Sunday on a given week because the free game will have changed by the following Sunday.
Ah well, we’ll see. I was looking forward to trying Enter the Gungeon this weekend, so don’t be surprised if you end up hearing about that this Sunday. I actually did play last week’s game, Kingdom: New Lands, I just didn’t get around to writing the post.
It was a pretty good game. Little more difficult than I anticipated, as I never managed to clear the first area and each attempt took close to an hour. After the third or fourth failure, I moved on to other stuff. If nothing else, the gameplay itself was a cool concept and was executed well.
Y’all take care, and don’t mess with EGS. They have weaponized their cash flow.
