Epic Games Store: Free Games – 17th September 2020
Stick It to the Man
Stick It to the Man is a 2D platformer with a grappling hook mechanic. That grappling hook is a weird, pink, mutated hand that pokes out the top of your head, that can grab and pull the world – and read people’s minds. For some reason. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, yadda yadda. It’s got a cool papercraft (or is it cardboardcraft?) aesthetic which I really like and lots of neon. Nothing bad ever came from lots of neon.
Football Manager 2020
Football Manager 2020 is a game about managing football. Like the previous FM games, it has really detailed statistics and analysis that’ll make all those armchair managers across the world wet their pants. Even though I’m not that into football (or soccer, if you’d prefer), I’ve wanted to have a go at a recent Football Manager game for a while, so this is a great chance to give it a shot. A shot? Get it? Never mind.
Watch Dogs 2
Although the original Watch Dogs didn’t live up to the hype, the 2016 sequel is apparently much better. More sneaky hacking and causing chaos in a fake version of San Francisco. It takes itself way less seriously, which probably makes it more like Just Cause than Far Cry – and that might just be a good thing.
FYI, Rocket League is also moving into the EGS next week (September 23rd). I figured I’d mention it now in case I forget later!
