The_Witcher_Enhanced_EditionOne of my all time favorite games is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  Never played the other games in the series.  Mostly because back then they came out they were on PC.  Which I didn’t have one that could run them.  They were all so on the Xbox but didn’t have one.  If you are like me and want to try them out.  We are in luck.  GOG.com is giving the The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free.  Of course there is a bit of catch to it.  But nothing too complicated.  Well you need to have a GOG account.  The next thing you have to do is download the free game GWENT.  If you never heard of this.  It is a card game which was featured first in the Wild Hunt game.  It came super popular.  So they made a standalone game. Have you do that there is a link > here and subscribe to their newsletter.  Once that is done you can download the first game. This doesn’t take long.  Not sure when I will get around to playing it.  But free game is a free game.

Mount & Blade

Mount_&_BladeBack in June 2014 got a free game from GoG.com, Torchlight.  This sites sells mostly older digital PC games and some new ones for a good price.  They all so have movies that are game related in some way.  As I am typing this (May 20, 2017) they are giving another game way for free called Mount & Blade for a 48 hour period.  The game was first released back in 2008.  It is a medieval action role playing game.  Have head of it.  But didn’t know much about.  So being free had to give it a download.  While it was downloading looked up some videos.  It does look dated but still fun.

Torchlight

TorchlightAs I am typing this (June 24, 2014) the people over at GoG.com are having a summer sale.  If you haven’t heard of GoG, it stands for Good Old Games.  It is a website that sells older computer games as well as some newer ones for around $15 or under.  What makes this different from other game selling sites is they are DRM free.  While reading a gaming news article talking about the summer sale they were having I had to  check it out.  Took a look at the site and they had Torchlight going for free.  This game first game out in 2009.  All ways wanted to try that game.  So I stopped every thing I was doing.  Sign up for the site and download the game.  It only took minutes.  Have not tried the game yet, will on my day off.   While that was downloading took a look at what other games they have.  There is a lot different types of games.  Some real old ones and others I never heard of and new ones.

[Update] Have played a bit of the first part of the game.  Made it to level five.  This game is pretty much a Diablo clone.  Plays the game you interact with the world and item screens the same.  The one big difference is you have a pet with you.  Which helps you fight and can carry things for you.  Another differences you can use guns as well.
