There's some kind of bug where if you try to get it through the Origin client, the only option is to purchase it as a gift. Without launching the client, go to the origin.com and buy it there, then open the client to download.

I guess I don't get the appeal of The Sims.

Cool, I've been wanting to try Asetto Corsa, Endless Space 2, and Black Desert. Don't Starve Together might be cool too.

Looks like Kingdom New Lands is free on the Epic Games Store until June 13th. Then itís Enter The Gungeon from June 13th to June 20th.

Kingdom New Lands is one of those 2D side-scrolling city builders.

Nice. I don't think I really want to play the game, but I'd love to explore the map.

Have they patched it to the point that it's worth playing at that price?

You can't edit posts on this board past 5 minutes - but in any case the free periods are short, so just reading new posts will keep you up to date.

Ubisoft is doing a subscription service and offering a free month (Sept 3-30) if you register before August 15th. You do need to provide a valid credit card and they will bill you $15 on October 1st if you don't cancel before then. But if you can live with that, you can get a month's worth of free Ubisoft game playing.
