I took up the Dragon Age Inquisition offer from Epic since I had that game on PS4 a long time ago but never finished it but now, I can start playing it again on the Steam Deck

I had 100% Orange Juice when I first started building my Steam game collection using the Fanatical bundles and Endless Dungeon was a later grab when it offered it up for free some time ago but never started neither one of the games though.

is there a way to get DAI to install from Heroic?
Will probably grab Endless Legend, seems like my kind of thing.

Man, I love PC-gaming - giveaways like these remind me of older releases being given away on the C64 magazine cover-tapes of old.

I just grabbed Machinika: Museum - looks interesting.

Are GOG games working a bit better through Heroic Game Launcher over Lutris? Lutris seems to be acting up on my computer (though that could just be from a bunch of cruftiness that one of these days I should clean up on my system).

Machinka: Museum looks like exactly the sort of thing I'd like. Sold, for zero bucks!

Might as well grab Endless Legend too, I was interested in that once upon a time.
Fair warning: Dragon Age Inquisition requires you to use the EA launcher.

They very generous, free game, but when you check let's see hmm, it's not the full game, it's a way to make people buy must have dlcs unless you wanna play a demo.

No one gives anything for free, not even Epig store, thanks to Tecent I guess they made an easy way to know what not to buy till it's 5€ and I wonder why those games that oh, lost millions and their reputation, take for example Metro saga, their games lost their value so much you can buy entire saga for what, 8€? those who received the bribe from tencent don't care they happy with their whores and their blow, or maybe they blown already their brains, cuz sooner than later they gonna see money is not what you need, the thing is all team behind those games, (that's many people working for living with a contract for a normal pay, they have to keep working every day, despite what epig sais mixing developers with publishers, well I think they were not so happy to see their work getting dust on Epig, but life is unfair.

Quoting: GuestD'aww. I was hoping to get card drops from ENDLESS Legend, but it seems like they were aware of the possibility of card farmers making very good use of that.

I have to ask - what do you do with the cards ?
Sell them for profit ? Do they make your profile look better ?
I honestly feel like "old man yells at cloud" but i don't get it
