Wow, great find! I've been looking for Tribes 1 and 2 since I used to play those and I'm always looking for a nostalgia fix :P

CT Special Forces: Fire for Effect

Edit: Be advised, I'm getting a "no serial available yet" showing up instead of a key for whatever reason.

I tried doing the CT one. I did the transaction and everything. I then got to the page where you hit the Steam button and it produces a code. When I do that, it says 'No serial available yet.'. Very strange.

Seems like the same issue as Dhobo. I sent an email to their support to see what is happening.

I waited and tried again after about an hour. My serial showed up this time, so I think it's working again.

edit: Also appears this game needs to be added to the site? I don't see it in my searching at least, but I'm a bit sleep deprived, so I'll let someone more mentally capable double check :P

That is weird that it seems to be not there. I already had it on Steam, so it should have come up as something that needed to be added when I imported.

Ah, I remember this game now! I knew I had looked at it before and it's actually the same game as Special Forces: Nemesis Strike. It was known as Counter Terrorist Special Forces: Fire for Effect in Europe. I've updated the alias name so it should be picked up in searches now (although I entered it as "Counter Terrorist" instead of "CT"...sometimes Steam is weird like that).

Do you mind if I change part of the alias from Counter Terrorist to CT? Seems like the majority of sources online that I see use CT instead of the full words. Don't want to override your edit if you want it kept as "Counter Terrorist" etc... though.

Nah, I say go for it if that's what most sites are listing it as. I know Steam displays it as "CT" in the image, but the official box art for Europe was completely different: http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/9/3/0/62930_front.jpg

I'm glad region-specific naming isn't quite as prevalent as it used to be (at least it doesn't seem to be as bad to me).

Technically, this isn't a FREE game, but it's close enough and I don't want to make a thread just for this.

The $1 tier on this week's Humble Weekly Bundle includes Hack n' Slash and its soundtrack. However, when you redeem the game (and I've confirmed this with other purchasers), you'll immediately get a copy of Spacebase DF-9 in your inventory that you can either activate for yourself or give away.

So the total haul from this week's Humble Weekly Bundle $1 tier is Costume Quest, Lumino City, Hack n' Slash and Spacebase DF-9. Not bad for a buck.

Oh wow, I really wanted to get my hands on Spacebase DF-9 before, then they went and gave up on it, but I guess the community's been putting some work in on it, so for a buck, heck yes! Thanks for that info, I totally would have missed out :D

I think that Blockstorm is only free to play during this promotion though. I don't think you keep it in your library do you?

It should be something you can add permanently. If they wanted it to be only free during this promotion, they'd do a free play weekend so it automatically self deletes like every other game does. Every game I've ever added by going to its Steam page and adding while it was free I kept forever.

Though it is acting wonky. It's not showing up in my library at all, yet the store page insists I have it.

Yeah, it's been behaving oddly for me as well. Only reason I wondered if it was free free is because they still list it with a purchase price underneath the "play for free" bit. Made me think this was more of a "free weekend" thing that they do with other games, but for longer.

Jade Empire - Special Edition is apparently going to be the next "On The House" game on Origin. Going to the On The House section still shows the Command & Conquer games, but searching Origin for Jade Empire says it's On the House.

If you try to "buy" it, it says there's a problem and doesn't let you. But it will likely be live Tuesday.

For anyone who didn't tune in to the game awards tonight (or read any followup news for it) you can get Shadow Complex for free.

https://www.epicgames.com/shadowcomplex/

Not sure if it's perma-free like say, an on-the-house Origin game, or if it's removed at the end of the month. It's available through December at the least... so long as you use the Epic Games Launcher.
