    Had this in Amiga back in the day. Was a big deal back then.

    It was certainly good at the time. I remember it being quite hard for a 90s game. Wether it stands the test of time is another story. I’ve learned to not revisit some games I thought were great 20 odd years ago but not considered classics by the masses and leave the good memories. As several I have gone back too ended up not really being anywhere near as good as I remembered.

    Even resident evil 4 which I still consider as one of the best games I’ve ever played felt clunky and slow on the HD remaster on current consoles and I quickly just turned it off to not ruin its memories.

    Good tip. I’ve heard of that one but never played it. Love Dredd, Bladerunner and Gibbons.

    I also have some to give away. FTL, Slay the Spire once the humble monthly hits and something else that I've forgotten.

    I know nothing of Epic. What is it? Is it like Gog, Humble Bundle etc, or more like Steam?

    The Xbox game pass is probably also worth mentioning. It's not free, but it's a pound a month or something at the moment and you get access to shed loads of games. Latest Metro, FM19, Moonlighter, Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon etc etc.

    Also works on PC.

    Steam but run by the people who make Fortnite. It's just a shop front. They give away games every week in order to get people to use it (as they are trying to get share off of steam).

    Lots of gamers don't like it for reasons I don't really understand. My son uses it for Fortnite anyway so I just grab the games when they come up.

    I already have MYZ on Steam anyway but I paid full price for it. It's a good strategy game. Kind of stealth XCom but a lot simpler.

    I've got a key for Slay the Spire to give away. Great card based game.

    I will also have Battletech once the next Humble monthly comes around :D

    This is a small problem with Humble Monthly. I’ve got like over a thousand games between Steam, GOG, Epic and Origin. I keep getting games i already own. It’s still a good deal though.

    Yes, there's an RPG bundle at the moment as well, which I might buy. So I will have Pillars of Eternity to give away soon as well.

    £3.60 for 5 games or whatever it is is still good, even if you have one of them.

    What with Epic and Humble and the XBox game pass - you can have more games than you ever have time for, for about a tenner a month.

    I'm addicted to 8 Ball Hero on the iPhone. Not paying for in game stuff doesn't enjoy the experience.
