@ThanosReXXX haha I don't know I probably just live under a rock, I call them tablets if you are talking about a flat computer with a touch screen or a large smart phone that can't make phone calls

I feel like a lot of the free games come across as that sort of smartphone jobby you described. But yeah I think I largely agree, awareness of a title/publisher/developer helps me sort the value from the detritus in terms of the sub-£3 games. If something looks interesting, I'll normally click on the publisher and may see they've published something decent or well known and that this cheap game may be worth a punt. Not the case for the 8p games though, I just saw them as "basically free"

@ThanosReXXX my apologies, yeah I actually don't think I've seen them before. I've seen PDAs before and Wacom drawing tablets similar to the link but without screens and they just plug into the computer with USB. They look pretty new though, so I guess they must have a specific application for artists or note takers or something. They're a bit like a digital etch a sketch

@NEStalgia They probably aren't free for you b/c you're a big ole' meanie. ūüėĚ

Mosou games are great. I think I could get by playing only Mosou games as long as they have a decent story and cool weapons. So far HW2 is a huge step down from HW. Probably saving all the good stuff for the season pass like Pokemon S&S. ūü§∑

@ralphdibny Told ya he wouldn't be happy. ūüėā

Played all 3 last night about 5-15 minutes each.

Have no idea what's going on in Akane, it may just be a fast paced Robotron.

Coffee Crisis is garbage. You have 2attacks, 1of which drains all your health and 1is worthless, and you can grab people with 1 button and then maybe throw them? I do like the ascetic but they spent80% of their time on that and only 20% on gameplay.

Showdown needs a 1player tutorial. I think my kids could have a lot of fun with their friends playing that one but it's too fast for me. But easily the best of the 3. Though Amend might be if I had any idea as to what was going on. These cheap games are always so bad at explaining things.

I had a decent time with coffee crisis. It's kinda silly but fun it short spurts. Only played the 15 min as well though.

@ralphdibny Ah, no apologies needed, my friend. I sometimes forget that just because I work in the IT/Telecom industry that everybody is a tech head, or at least up to speed with modern day tech, so I can also look to myself in that regard.

@rjejr lol. I found the 8p ones I've tried have no tutorial but thankfully they were simple enough to work out

@ThanosReXXX that's fair enough, funnily enough I work in IT too but I have such little interest in business applications that if nobody has ported Doom to it yet then I will leave that knowledge in the work place. I'm sure somebody will port Doom to one of those things one day though!

@ralphdibny I've heard that you can now already play it on your fridge, so nothing surprises me anymore in that regard.

The Next Penelope from Plug In Digital is showing as free for me. I'm assuming it's tied to something, but I wasn't able to find any info about it. I own a bunch of stuff from Plug In Digital though, so it would make sense.

Sorry for not tagging anybody, but I feel weird about potentially bothering a bunch of people if they don't care about this game. Hopefully at least a few are keeping an eye on this thread. If someone else wants to do a mass tag, feel free.

@Northwind Yeah, I'm assuming this would be something separate from the QubicGames thing since this is a different publisher. I'm also in the US eShop and it was free. I'm guessing you need to own something else in order to trigger the freebie, but I don't know what that "something else" is.

I own quite a few games from Plug In Digital, so I can't really narrow it down any. Now that I think about it, they did a promotion a while back where Bury me, my Love was free if you owned any game published by them, so maybe this is the same.

Cheers for the tip @klingki ! Unfortunately it's not showing up free for me, looks like there's a stackable discount of 25 and 15 percent on it for owning other games from the publisher (UK eshop)

No worries about the mass tag, it's not always an appropriate thing to do. I have this thread "watched" so I get the notification anyway. I feel a bit apprehensive about the mass tag too but I have asked people to let me know if they don't want to be a part of it so hopefully they do and then I can remove them from the list.

@klingki Thanks, it's working for me. It seems like a good game so it's generous of them to give it away like this. The other Plug In Digital games I have are Splasher and Bury Me, My Love (the latter of which I got for free like you mentioned), so it must be one or both of those that counts towards getting The Next Penelope for free.

@Dogorilla Well darn. I already have The Next Penelope but when you said that I was hoping I could get Splasher for free because I've wanted that one for awhile, but alas, no. Nothing of theirs is free for me. Too bad because they actually had a lot of good games that I've been interested in.

@Xyphon22 Ah that's a shame. Splasher is a good game, it's a bit short but I'd definitely recommend getting it if it goes on sale.

@ralphdibny I did like 3 edits adding tags. I wonder if there was a glitch, or if adding tags as an edit doesn't notify the users. Wonder if I should repaste the list of tags as a new comment? EDIT: if you were logged into NL when I tagged you, emails don't get sent, I don't think.

Could you add me to the tag list please? Thanks!

The Next Penelope was 100% off for me. I also got Bury Me My Love free from them back then.

I think it’s because I purchased one of their terrible My Farm games. So I take it as penance on their part.

Also no, editing people in after posting doesn’t send them notifications. Probably because the page wouldn’t really be able to tell which users were already notified and which haven’t. So it would probably just send an email to everyone again every time you edited your post.

@Clyde_Radcliffe added!

The list is in post 62 on page 4 (mobile browser) in case anyone intends to use it! I thought I'd repeat that as we are now a few pages away

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
