Well, you might have to sign up but DLH is giving away a few games.

 

http://www.dlh.net/

 

They do have pop-ups but once you sign in, look in the top-right corner next to your sign-in name and you should see a link that says "Profile/Keys".  Click on that, scroll down, and you should see games with buttons that say something like "Get Your Key".  If it says it is out don't give up...keep refreshing and try again.  Something about their site does that and you have to literally keep hammering away until it gives in.  The keys will require Steam for activation.  Enjoy!!

Not free, but Postal 2 is on sale for $0.99 until Jan 25 on Steam.  For those that like dark humor and action. 

 

(I just bought it).

Picked up the C&C: Red Alert 2 and just now picked up Jade Empire Special Edition.  I have the latter for the original XBOX and it is a really neat and enticing action/adventure/RPG-style game.  The storyline was well worth it for me.

Pinball FX2 is free on Steam, and this week for $1 you can unlock several tables via HumbleBundle

https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

Pay a few bucks more and get even more tables.

Make sure you activate the free game on Steam before you try to redeem your table keys!

This game is by no means new, and it does have micro-transactions.   That being said, you can enjoy a pretty balanced system for something that's free 2 play.   There ARE premium tanks, but they aren't the best tanks in the game.  They are just, well...easy to get and pretty good. 

Anyway, I love World War II games.  I like them from the grand strategy board game or PC game, down to the first person shooter or RPG.   If you've ever wanted to jump in countless different WWII vehicles (many of them prototypes) and beat up other people who love doing the same...this game is a blast.

It is PvP, but it is 15v15 pvp, so you do have a team and sometimes they even work together!  

I suck at it, but would be honored to be in a platoon (a group that does battles together) with anyone from Atari.IO anytime!
