the books are pretty good. You can only download 5 at a time to a kindle - but that is not a big issue for me. I cannot fault Prime. Great shows, movies, games and books as well as free P&P for certain items. Its really good given it is the cost of a couple of high street coffees.

The Twitch client is not intrusive. Its like any other program sitting on your PC, just switch off auto-boot

I once couldn’t be bothered looking for an hdmi cable in the might big box of random cables and instead ordered one from prime now and it came in 45mins and I was well chuffed with my ability to adult.

Mantis wrote:Done it. Signing up with Amazon bags you £10 free credit for Prime Day too, so for the £7.99 it's cost me for the month I've already made good on it.

A word of warning though, the free Twitch games require you to install the Twitch app and launch the games through it (á la Steam). It's a bit of a pain to have yet another game client on the PC, but for the value this particular deal is offering I figured I'd just bite the bullet and install it.


As far as I know you can play the games independent from the client. You only need it to download the games.

EDIT: Just checked and that appears to be correct. You can run the .exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Twitch\Games Library without the need for the client to be running.

I played some of this lastnight, seems good fun, just make sure you use a pad as it's horrid to play on a keyboard as it doesn't have mouse support.

It really isn't a suitable replacement for vodka after all.

Looking through my, now quite considerably sized, game backlog I found one called Tokyo 42. What an awesome little game let down by a bad control scheme (rotate with Q and E keys....really?)

I think I have nearly 20 or so games on this twiotch app and not a penny spent. Some are awful though but there are some little gems in there.

Oh and started Pillars of eternity too . Wow. Is that Baulders gate or what?

Just in case anyone needs reminding, the 'free' games continue.

Hue from yesterday and Deponia Doomsday today.
