In the announcement earlier this month it looked like Broken Age was the last free Twitch Prime game this month (on Prime Day). But two more just dropped today. So I guess keep an eye on that page.


When someone tells you they game with a trackball.


PSA in case you've forgotten about the free Twitch Prime games today is Tyrrany, which is probably the biggest title of the bunch.


Tried the Fear the Wolves beta. Total PUBG ripoff, buggy & broken. Not even Early Access ready. I actually enjoyed Volstok's Survarium for a while but this feels like an uninspired cashgrab. Sad as it's the only BR that had looked interesting to me.


So the qp add image button seems to be missing for me. anyone know a fix? :/ I'm using Firefox. (the best part is that I almost took a snapshot to show you before I realized how dumb that would be)


Sorry, gaming websites, I'm not disabling adblock. Every time I've disabled it somewhere I've been pummeled with harassing popups, autoplaying videos, etc. Ads would be fine if they weren't obnoxious & intrusive. Plus it's a security issue at this point.


Haven't been around as much lately so I just wanted to poke in & say hi. I'm still playing way too much Overwatch & my backlog is getting worse because of it. Need to play Nier Automata or Hollow Knight next I think. What good stuff is in your backlog?


My sister just got the monitor I helped her pick out. So jealous lol. Ultrawides are so sexy.


Don't think I've seen this posted yet. Freedom Planet 1 is coming to Switch. Really loved this game on pc, though the late levels & bosses were hard. Beautiful pixel art & music. A little cheese story wise, but still really fun for platformer fans.


The free Twitch Prime games for June are available. Both Banner Saga games and a few others. Treadnauts looks like it would a blast for local multiplayer.


Death's Gambit has a release date (Steam & PS4 so far afaik), August 14th. I've been waiting a couple years for this one, looks like Castlevania & Dark Souls had a baby. Beautiful pixel art & animation, huge bosses, etc. Hope it's as good as it looks.


I have a great little team to play Overwatch with now! Crimson is an amazing Mercy main & supports me, & Nivek is great at taking out enemy snipers. So I get to rain justice like crazy! Good times.


Was curious whether the PS4/One hard copy of Sega Genesis Classics would have games that aren't on PC. So I compared lists & the hard copy is actually *missing* several games. No Sonic 3 or CD, no Ecco games, no Eternal Champions. Just an FYI for buyers.


Having put like 80 hours into the Early Access version I can definitely recommend this one to people on Switch. It's similar to Rogue Legacy but with deeper combat and a million weapons.


Loved Black Tiger in the 80s as a kid & Sears had it listed for NES in their catalog. It never released, though. I just looked it up- it got canceled :( More important: I found this art from the computer version and... what is up with that ass?!


Looks like a Switch port of The Long Dark is in the works. I've played it an insane amount on PC. If you want a chill, beautiful survival game with no zombies or other players it's pretty great.


Just checked & the free Twitch/Amazon Prime games for May have been announced. Nothing too exciting, unfortunately. If you haven't claimed the April games, though, get on it. Steamworld Dig 2 is one of the freebies but goes away at the end of the month.


PSA: If you buy Battlezone VR, you get the non-VR Gold edition free when it comes out. Since it's on sale for $20 atm I picked it up. And Swords of Ditto comes out Tuesday for PC/PS4. It looks like Zelda + co-op + roguelite. *throws money at screen*


Decided I needed to ramp over the train in Forza Horizon 3 because duh it's cool. Kinda sad there was no acknowledgement from the game that I'd done it. Lame :( Hope FH4 makes it out this year. The one series I'll brave MS's awful Windows Store to play.


Best comment on the new Sombra skin lmao


I look employable, right?


I am loving that the icon Twitch uses for Dungeons & Dragons is the cover of the classic "red box" Basic Set from 1983. My parents got it for me when I was a little kid. Still my favorite version of D&D!


Job interview tomorrow after being out of work for a few years. Hoo-boy... :/


Sorry I was super bitchy to some people earlier. I'm having an atrocious day and I didn't realize how much it had messed with my mood. I'm so sorry guys :(


If you have Amazon Prime, they just put up April's free Twitch Prime games. Get win.


About Jinx 01one of us since 4:26 PM on 11.18.2011

I love gaming, and I have followed the industry and its technology since I was a kid in the 80's. I have gamed primarily on PC since 2000, though I still follow console news and hardware as well.

I worked as a mapper and beta tester for the mod Action Half-Life. I also make custom images for Steam's grid view, those are over on my website.
