Twitch Prime/Amazon Prime - Free Games!

Postby Achtung Englander » Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:15 pm



If you have an Amazon Prime account you can link it to Twitch Prime. Free games now added. Already claimed Superhot, Oxenfree, Shadow Tactics and Mr. Shifty.

You will need to install the Twitch client but....who cares...free games

Looks like they will be adding free games going forward. Next month I have dibs on Tokyo 42 =D>

Free Shadow Tactics? That's surprising.

No time to watch the video. When you download them on the client will you then have to launch them through it, ala Steam, or is it just a matter of downloading the exe? And do you keep access to it permanently? Or do you have to stay signed up with Prime?

I'd sign up for Prime for the month just for Shadow Tactics tbh.

its just like GOG

You can open via a shortcut or via client. Not tested it yet but it asks if you want a shortcut on your desktop. I am pretty happy with this as I got Prime for P&P, so this is just a bonus. A bit like when the misses gives you a blowie when you were just expecting missionary again

Already have Prime for the telly and delivery, so will probably do this at some point. I've already got all those games that I care to play, though, so will wait until they add something I want to pick up and haven't played yet.

How to ensure I'll never want to use your terrible software:
-Force me to install it just to download a game that runs without it.
-Give no ability to pause a download.
-Give no ability to limit download rate.
-Don't even let me see the download rate.

I know it's free stuff, but it's almost as if Twitch don't want me to use their client.

It certainly is. Probably the best title there outside of Pyschonauts, but let's be honest if you wanted to play Psychonauts you would've done so by now.

for a second I was excited to get Gone Home, only to check my Steam library. I already own it ](*,)

That's a regular occurrence with me these days too.

I have games in my steam account I have absolutely no idea where they came from. :?
