#FreeGameFriday! To The Moon and Dust: An Elysian Tail.

Standard

Let’s kick off #FreeGameFriday with two indie games!

To The Moon is an indie game about granting a man’s dying wish to go to the moon. It manipulates all your emotional strings and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be left crying at the end. Anyone who loves a good story will love this.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is also an indie game. It’s a visually beautiful game (reason why I bought my copy in the first place) and is, all-an-all, a fun play.

You can sign up here. Form will be open until next friday and your info will be private. Winners will be picked through the awesomeness of Random.org.

Happy gaming! ❤

Edit: Doc has closed and winner has been notified! If you didn’t hear anything, well… Maybe next time!

A revival with free games!

Standard

Since my CPs are always on my case because my blog has cobwebs and bats, I’ve decided to revive it with one of my favorite things in the world: GAMES.

I have A LOT of clutter on my Humble Bundle account (mostly stemming from buying a bundle for a couple games while having all others), I’m giving some away. For free, because I’m a firm believer that a) sharing is caring and b) I’m always happy to spread some game love around.

Starting Friday, I will be giving away games every week. Keys will be mostly for Steam, but I have some on Origin laying around too. So it’ll be a #FreeGameFriday

You don’t have to give me anything, but it’d be nice if you followed me on twitter, because I’ll then be able to see if you’re enjoying the stuff.

So, yeah. If you’re interested, let me know!

And if you want to blame anyone, blame Tasha, Emma and Kathy.

Games with romantic elements

Standard

Ok, I won’t lie: I’m a sucker for romance. I love it in books, in movies and yes, in video games. So I decided to compile a list of all the games I’ve played that have romantic elements to them.

The list!
Grim Fandango
Planescape: Torment
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (the original has a slight mention of romance too — but VERY slight)
Dreamfall: Chapters
The Last Story
Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic II
(albeit a bit subdued)
The Old Republic (every class has at least one romance for male/female. IMPERIAL AGENT FTW)
Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn
Baldur’s Gate II: Throne of Baal (continuation of the BGII romances)
Neverwinter Nights
Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark
(also, you have TONS of NWN modules with romances in them)

Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Beyond Good and Evil
(Oh, come on, there was something there!)
The Darkness
Deadly Premonition
(and, I’m not joking, it’s AMAZING)
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (highly subdued and arguable, but still…)

Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones
