Was it just me, or was this a fairly crap holiday for game sales? Consoles had a few decent deals, but I didn't see anything that wow'd me on PC. Maybe I just own everything I'm genuinely interested in already....

Omikron is free from Square Enix's store to uhh.... celebrate? Reminisce? Tribute?..... Well either way it's free because David Bowie died I guess.

https://store.na.square-enix.com/pro...ul-pc-download

Enter promo 'Omikron' at checkout and you'll get the game for free until the 22nd.

It's old, but free is free!

I remember when this game came out, I really enjoyed it at the time.

Gog's Having another midweek sale, not amazing but you can get a decent price on a few DRM free goodies; Pillars of Eternity (but not the Expansion :( ), Wasteland 2, Grim Fandango Remastered. All Solid PC games;

GOG.com

Fractured Space on steam might not just be a free weekend but free to keep if you download it.

Microsoft Store has Rise of Tomb raider-PC on sale for $54$ US or $62 CAD something.
This sale is only for Windows 10 machine.

[Windows Store] Rise of the Tomb Raider ($53.99/11% off) | Discount applies to Windows 10 devices only.

Now If you change your location setting in Windows to, let's says Ukraine, you'll pay less than 14$ CAD (after conversion).
YMMV, Do it at your own risk.

To change location: Settings --> Time & Language --> Region & Language

people discussing the deal here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/GameDeals/c...er_539911_off/

check out with a Ukraine address and a CAN Credit card.

This is not Steam DRM. It's Microsoft Store.

Currently downloading the game now. Was charged about <$14 CAD.

I know Micro$oft is keen to push their new OS onto everyone, but somehow this almost seems a bit pathetic/desperate/sad.

In other news, Star Citizen is free to try for a week - PC Gamer FYI, it's a 27.7GB download.

I'm at least glad to hear it's finally out-ish for the PC as I did not feel like spending the full retail price for the Xbone version.

Microsoft Store retail locations are apparently carrying USD steam cards. So $20 CAD for a $20 USD steam card (automatically gets converted when you input the code, so $20 CAD to about $28 CAD). Supplies are probably low since it's on RFD but worth a look or see if they will restock.

Just double check the back, it'll say USD.
