I did it twice. Unfortunately, my second was over my 3years. I paid $9.69 as is the price on site now. I’ll never remember to redeem. Anyone want it for say, $8? Paypal. Pm me.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

These “freebies” are very sketchy. The company names are generic names to the type of game genre. The reviews are awful as well.

You know, this would be a great time for Sony, MS and Steam to have some kind of huge "quarantine" sale. I mean, we're all going to be sitting at home a lot more for a while, give us some games to play for cheap!!

It would take something of the level of the black plague for me to be home long enough to play through the backlog that I already have.

Apologies for the off-topic-ness, but my GCU finally expired today. RIP, my friend. Farewell, buying physical games on release.

Mine expires last Fri. Lasted long enough to preorder Ghost of Tshushima. Did they send you a 25% off coupon?

Not all of us have been stock-piling games for such an occasion!

Crap ton of “quarantine sale” freebies in itch.io lately, for the low quality Indy game collectors amongst us.

Conversely, Gog is giving away a pack of Witcher extras today.

New Steam freebie.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/555000/GOAT_OF_DUTY/

One in the near daily freebies at IndieGala that looks kinda cool, maybe.
https://freebies.indiegala.com/balancity/

And similar possible diamond in the rough at itch.

Fwiw, Gog has a new “staying at home” page of all (?) of their free games. One was new to me and I thought I kept up.

I think all the freebies are listed here:
https://itch.io/sales

The two Bleed games, on sale for discounted prices on Steam and Switch, are totally free on itch.io:
https://itch.io/s/28806/bleed-series-quarantine-pwyw

Interestingly, those two games are the only ones I've encountered that I can't "claim" them to add to my itch.io library. So be sure to download them now while you can, and then save the installer.
