COD Black Ops 4 Blackout (their battle royale mode) is free for a week on battle.net. 85GB download though. How they managed to need 85GB for a limited mode run on a tweaked quake 3 engine is a bit of a mystery to me.

Iím certain youíre downloading a full-featured game that has most of the content locked. If you like it enough to pay for the whole thing you unlock the rest. I think most limited demos are like that.

I own it already and this is a great adventure game series. Well worth....well, zero.

If you liked Monkey Island and other games back in the early 90's, this is about the closest to that kind of game. I played all 4 and while the last one was a bit of a disappointment, the original trilogy was great.

Man, there's too much free stuff going on and I get too lazy to post it all. I missed a few freebies this week that already expired. If you want to make sure you catch everything, subscribe to www.reddit.com/r/gamedeals

Epic games store has jackbox party pack (1) free.

Endless space free but it requires making an account and linking it to your steam account from some site I've never heard of so meh.

Yep pretty much every week there are 1 or 2 decent free games.

Jackbox Party Pack is pretty fun with a couple friends and cell phones.

I think the Endless Space store is from the company that makes Endless Space. I linked my Steam account, claimed the game, then unlinked.

Kholat is free on Steam at the moment. In case you live in the Midwest and are already missing the polar vortex.

I was trying to download something on Origin yesterday and I was cut off in the middle of the download and haven't been able to log-in since.

It's ok, because it's on Epic Games, not Origin
