The "Free Game" Topic

Want to know about a game? Should we buy that new upcoming release? Post your thoughts on new games and ones you have...so others can know whether to buy it or not! All non-SWBF, non-modding topics should go here.

Off-topic : If you do not mind this Demand, I would want you to compare both the content of your previous message and the one inherent to most of those having been inserted prior to it in order to tell me whether yours was that worth the posting, while reminding that the Statement you have held through it is was far from being that helpful and Informative for GameToast members having a look at it. Of course, if you can't help thinking the opposite way, feel free to check out that by reading as many times as possible the concerned post...

Off-topic : In that precise case, since you seem to have indeed ever faced troubles while attempting to reach the web-site I have substituted yours by, I guess I do not need to phrase additional Remarks and Lessons with regards to the Drawbacks presented by Third-party Locations, but I would merely like to remind that sharing as many Different Links as possible referring to a Common Resource may not be mostly that useless and time-elapsing, especially if some of them have unexpectedly become unavailable, for sample.

Off-topic : I know I shouldn't tackle such a Discussion into a thread which has not been that hijacked and abused yet, but since you apparently seem to be somewhat lured and attracted into emitting Comments regarding the multiple Avatars I may exploit on GameToast Message-Board, I was wondering whether you would enjoy using some of the Star Wars Episode III : Revenge of the Sith - The Video Game-related Graphics Files I may have gathered onto my Hard-Drive so far...

Yes, I would enjoy it. :D

I donno if it's already been said, but http://www.gamehippo.com is an okay source for Freeware games (I don't personally like most of the games there, as there aren't very many in the genres I like best).

But, http://www.digipen.edu/main/Game_Downloads (DigiPen Institute of Technology) displays games designed by students. I wanna go there...lol

Here is a free game that looks cool. It is the game called F.E.A.R. The free version will be multiplayer only.

Off-topic : As far as I can currently tell, the web-address you have attached to your previous message is actually way far from referring to a possible Demonstration Version of F.E.A.R., and that's why I would rather suggest editing the concerned reply in order to substitute this same URL by another one matching a little better the Description you have made and phrased out of it. Indeed, I wouldn't wish you to forget that the current Location isn't intended to promote upcoming Monolith Productions® Products, and that's why working out this unsignificant Mistake as fastly as possible would be at the very least welcome and appreciable for the around GameToast members eager to get their hands down on the Devising you have mentioned and advised previously... :wink:

Ok so I just finished a huge session on FEAR multiplayer and I gotta say that was some of the most fun, addictive FPS ive played in a while. Regualr deathmatch is awesome but it really shines in team DM, people actually work as a team Shocked And as for realism i gotta say that Fear multiplayer strikes just the right balance of fun and intensity. You live long enough to take a couple of bullets but taking a couple shots isnt something you just brush off either. Also in team DM its almost impossible to get some little punk who will ruin the game because 1) throwing a nade while you're in the middle of a room of buddies will only hurt you, so theres really no TK's and 2) theres almost no wall glitching. Its almost nonexistent because while you can do it in like two select areas, you can flush them out easy with nades no prob. (so far ive only seen one glitch and thats on a roof.)
And the graphics are beautiful to boot. In a gory, macabre, flying body parts kinda way. This game is about as close as you can get to the intensity and addictiveness of Halo 2 w/out leaving your PC. (Battlefield 2 excluded) Combine all of that with the fact that its free and you have a thoroughly fun game on your hands

My Score: 9/10

graphics-9 (awesome)

sound-9 (very convincing)

gameplay-9 (very intense, very satasying and very addictive, only hurt by the fact that some guns are a little over powered on certain levels)

presentation-9 (very polished)

value-10 (you cant beat free)

Lasting Appeal- 9 (DM takes a good bit of skill but I think its the team DM that will keep me coming back 2 months down the line)

Another Tip- To get the most out of your game id advise sticking to servers with no more than 12 guys for team games and 8 guys for DM. Anything above those is just too chaotic and really just less fun.

Return to Blockland:

By all means, it's nothing special, but it's fun as heck when you get the right people on a server (which really isn't hard). It takes a while to get used to and learn how to do everything, but it's well worth it in my opinion. Give it a go, fellow lego nerds. :)

Review for the game above. Overall 9/10
One person is the commander who runs the side like in a rts. The soldiers are the other people who play online. They play from a fps/tps perspective. The graphics are not great, but are not bad. I thought the graphics were very fitting for the game. This is not the average freeware game, it is a high quality, professionally made game. I highly recomend you download it. I am not the best reviewer, so... if you want more reviews... http://www.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin ... 61393.html
There are many online servers for the version I downloaded (SEP version(the first link(recomended))) with up to 64 players. It is very fun.

Wow i can't believe nobodys mentioned Tremulous yet! Its a free FPS multiplayer game released last March and is kind of like Dawn of War, but just first person. It has amazing graphics, runs off the quake 3 engine and is incredibly fun with lots of servers online.

Wow i have to thank Teancum for bringing Albatross18 to my attention.

It's strangely addictive, and its gone and pushed aside Trackmania Nations, Counterstrike 2d and Generally (only just) as the most played free game in the last 3 days on my pc.

So, i thank Teancum :D

And to add more games to this free games list:

Counterstrike 2D: http://cs2d.com/index.php

A 2d clone of Counterstrike, with an active online community and many addon maps. Map edtior included :D

Trackmania Nations: http://www.trackmanianations.com/indexUk.php

For Mods: http://nations.tm-exchange.com/main.aspx

An online driving game, very active community, different types of racing, with a car paint editor and track editor, and many mods.

And finally, yoda_does_yoga, that game looks good, i'l try it when i'm done with all the free games on my pc.

eep.

(also, i have a plethora of TMN and GeneRally files, so don't hesitate to email me (cooee345@hotmail.com)

-And yes i am a free games freak lol-

Have any of you remembered Runescape, people? Sure, they try to cater to younger users, but it's pretty good for not being bloody and what not. Very rarely is there any bad language said by NPC's. Just the people say that kind of stuff...[/url]
