Free Games

Updating thread title, rather than having to ask for each individual expired thread to be closed, might as well just make a universal freebie thread.

 

 

 

 

...In theory. I can't figure out how to claim it. If I try to open it in ubisoft the activation popup just comes with no code, add it to cart and they still want $40. Probably still free on Epic anyway but hey, free stuffs.

edit: Got it working, if you're having trouble, make sure Uplay is completely closed before clicking the get it free button if you're having any problems.

I didn't have to do any such thing. If it's going into your cart on the web page, something is wrong. That happened to me too.

 

Just make sure you have the uplay launcher installed and it should try to launch it from the browser.

 

THIS is the link that launched uplay and gave me the game (not sure if it will work here though)

Yeah, games are getting huge these days..

 

I recently grabbed a decommissioned 3TB WD Black from ebay for $50 for a game drive.... got lucky, only had a few hundred hours on it and a couple current pending sectors in smart.. Zeroed it out and the errors are still gone.. good enough for a poor mans fast-ish game drive.

I remember when games where like 6-10Gb...those were the days. Then again its all kind of relative. Back then broadband was still in its infancy....so it still took ages to download lol.

Dirt Rally is an Oculus Rift exclusive ? I can't get it to work at all with my Index, nothing gets it to work. These types of exclusives are very dumb and I'm glad it didn't work out for them.

 

Otherwise, it's a very good game. Both with a wheel and controller.

Hi all,just want to add that Epic Games has a new free game(@ least 1) every week. What I do is click "Get game" and send it to my library instead of installing.Then when I DO decide to finally play 1 I download it onto the comp.This way I'm not taking up hundreds & hundreds of Gbs of space that I may never use but I DO have the games if I ever decide to actually play 1. ;) If I play 1 & it sucks,I can delete it off the drive,but still have it in the library if I change my mind.

True, they were certainly smaller back then. I think the smallest game I remember playing was Lemmings at school on a floppy disk.

 

Sure feel free to post keys here. I will at somepoint create a freebies section as well for this kind of thing.

 

Welcome to EHW :)

Thx.

I played a lot of games back in the day like "Paperboy, Winter and Summer Games to C64" and "Zelda, Mario, Battletoads and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES." i think i owned most consoles over the years.

lol, can't remember the title, was on windows 95/98 that I played it.1 CD based game had a pentium1 [email protected] with 32Mb of Ram and 1Gb hhd along with a 4mb video card. "The first Pentium microprocessor core was code-named "P5". Its product code was 80501 (80500 for the earliest steppings Q0399). There were two versions, specified to operate at 60 MHz and 66 MHz respectively, using Socket 4. It contained 3.1 million transistors and measured 16.7 mm by 17.6 mm for an area of 293.92 mm2. It was fabricated in a 0.8 µm BiCMOS process." ROTFL, can U picture even trying to load an operating system today with those specs??

The mind boggles when you think about what we ran back in the day and the systems we used to use :lachen:

What's more, mind boggle is i had a PC like that... i think it was in 2008 or close to that. It had a speed button that makes it go from 60 - 80Hz with a big 4GB HDD in it that was big a heavy with Windows NT on lol. i bet you could play Wolfenstein 3D on it.

 

Good old Windows NT ! Some of the school computers were running that beast lol.

HAHA. Windows NT from what i remember is a Server Windows from back in 1993? It was a really Bad OS. It may be good for its time, but I'm an XP fan i loved that OS. I had a guy ask me to install NT on his computer. I think that was in the mid-2000s, 2008, or close to that. I was like What is this? Go out and buy XP instead of this; it's too old to work today.

XP was certainly one of the best that MS produced followed by Win 7. Im even a fair fan of Windows 10 assuming you minus the telemetry aspect etc. It is still a solid OS. If you combined the stripped back nature of XP with the advancements of Win 10, that would be great.

XP was undoubtedly one of the best that MS produced, followed by Win 7. I'm even a fair fan of Windows 10 assuming you minus the telemetry aspect etc. It is still a reliable OS. If you combined the stripped-back nature of XP with the advancements of Win 10, that would be great.

 

What i love about XP is that you can customize everything, and i mean everything. Want to customize booting screen sure go ahead, there was nothing on XP you could not change. I don't feel the same with any other windows after XP. For me, PC stands for a personal computer, but how can you make anything personally if you need a 3 part program that uses PC performance to change how windows ten looks and runs.

 

You should have seen my Laptop back in the day.

 

This is the only video i can find of one of the Laptops i had with XP on.

i can't find the video i have where i had changed the Booting screen and some other stuff. But even this good looking Thema tells you the difference between XP and ten. i Know you can easy Change windows 7 Booting screen you just more limited since you can use win7boot to do it. But windows 10 is to much work to do so, and I'm not even sure how it is going to look.

lol, U give Win 10 too little credit. My Dell Dimension 3100 has been able to run 3 OS from microsoft halfway smoothly. XP,7,and 10. The others(Vista & 8/8.1) were so much worse I had to use linux mint. :) Mint IS better than 10 on many systems,especially my optiplex 160 with the atom cpu and sys graphics.

There was a lot of customization you could do with XP manually or view utilities such as TweakUI and others. Windows 10 does not have as much customization but still has a fair bit. That being said most of the modifications I make are for performance/usability reasons. I tend not to play with the GUI side of it as I am fairly happy with it.

Windows 10 is rather forgiving hardware requirements wise, I have been fairly impressed thus fair when running it on less that stellar systems, still does a pretty good job.
