The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

For the people upthread asking about a kid friendly game, Awakening: The Dreamless Castle was definitely that, with no horror or objectionable content, and I'm positive it was given away for free specifically in this thread a while ago because I would likely not have picked it myself. It's basically a fairy tale that you control but with puzzles and hidden object games.

Speaking of Awakening: The Dreamless Castle, it sounds like the freebie code for that game is still working! (MOBFREEAWAKENING)

Also, Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst (MOBFREERAVEN)

I don't think there is because I can other developer pages by googling "Big Fish Presents" and then the name of a popular game, but nothing comes up when adding popular Gamehouse games. I did find a relatively complete-looking list of Gamehouse titles, though.

It's a pure FPS with great atmosphere. All human enemies die in one headshot, maybe two if they have a helmet. 2033 & Last Light have straight-forward linear level design and in the event you're ever confused you can pull up your compass and it'll point towards your next waypoint. Only problem is they always have a "good ending" that requires you spare at least one Nazi, and, well, I ain't doing that.

As long as you explore enough, you can skip the pacifist angle and still get the good ending.

I was trying to get the good ending for the latest Metro. My guys bugged out on a mission and murdered everyone on the boat as soon as it started. Later found out in a guide that they shouldn't have started firing until i'd gotten spotted.

With their refusal to give you actual save slots, it just kinda killed the game for me. I wanna explore and do things, but i'd like to be able to save a ton and do it in one playthrough.

Your post made me realize that I have a strong but irrational aversion to having the same game on multiple storefronts, regardless if free copies are being given away. I guess maybe because it sort of artificially inflates the already too-high number of games I already own?

Having multiple copies of it on different platforms makes me feel better because my average price for the game is lower. Like buying a stock at a lovely price and then continuously buying in as it goes lower.

gently caress.

If you sign into the Big Fish club (and cancel, so that you're not charged but still get rewards for the month) every "collector's edition" of a game earns you three "punch card" punches. 6 get you a free game (but not a collector's edition).

Didn't pay attention and went through the gamehouse catalog in chronological order, using Reddit codes for regular games, when I could have doubled up.

I think this code may be specific to my account, but let's give it a try:

You also get extra punches for redeeming your codes on a Monday (including the codes you get from the game club).
You also can double-up on punches by redeeming both the Mac and PC versions of the games you get with the BIGFISHCASINO / MOBFREEAWAKENING / MOBFREERAVEN codes.

The nicest feature of Big Fish though, is that you get free one hour trials of all of their games that don't specifically have a demo version. So you can see if the old versions will actually run correctly on a modern OS / resolution. Not to mention that one hour of play is more than most of these games deserve.

Just chiming in to say that FtK is pretty meh as a singleplayer game but insanely fun as a local co-op title, striking a balance between JRPG, D&D and your regular boardgame.

I opened up the Uplay client to check if I'd gotten this for free before, and not only was it there, but Assassin's Creed 2 got in there at some point along with 3, Black Flag, and Unity. I remember getting 3 for free and thinking I could tell people that the worst game was my introduction to the series, and I also remember they gave away Unity when Notre Dame caught fire. I'm a little hazy on when they gave away Black Flag, but seeing 2 in there was a complete surprise to me.

Oof, I missed that one. AssCreed is such a ludicrous series that playing all of them is impossible, so I pick them based on setting. I have the ones set in Italy and Unity, which is set in France, but I wanted Syndicate due to the setting. So sue me, I'm European.
