It seems like Christmas has done a number on Steam, PSN and the eShop.  I can't redeem my Zelda code!  :angry:

Okay I'm ready for the hate. I haven't liked any Zelda games, I didn't like it on the NES, Ocarina of Time was meh, and I don't like any of the other ones since. I have literally never met someone who agrees with me on this matter.

On the off chance that Steam comes back up today, Left 4 Dead 2 is apparently free.

Oooh. So THAT'S why it's been down all day. Mine now. Always wanted to try Left 4 Dead...

That's called "Being wrong." ;^)

Actually, I'm not as gaga over the N64 Zelda games as most people are. I have a harder time finding myself in 3D, which makes some of the puzzles a chore.

I LOVE Link to the Past on the SNES, though, and a direct follow-up excites me to no end. Got mine for Christmas today. Bouncing with excitement. :^)

God dammit, this would be awesome but I bought it a few months ago, wish the first one was free too.

Same here. *Yoink!*

And seeing as I picked up Borderlands GOTY and Borderlands 2 on Amazon for $12, today has been a great day for my Steam library.

Ooh. I think I'll pick up Borderlands too. Now I can gear up for the upcoming Telltale game.

Also if you have PS Plus (which you should if you own a PS3 or PS4), Don't Starve will be free for the PS4 in January, as will Bioshock Infinite, Brothers, DmC, Smart As and Worms Battle Islands for the PS3.

Get a used one, they flooded the market before the PS4 came out.

I didn't know a better place to post this but I figured the right people would see it here. I just today learned about 'The Dark Mod' it's a free first person stealth game that mirrors Thief  made by modders that used the Doom 3 engine. It plays exactly like Thief but with modernized graphics and mechanics. There isn't an official campaign but tons of unique missions made by the community. While the mod has been around for a couple years it didn't get a finished stand alone release this year. If you want to try it go to http://www.thedarkmod.com/main/ and download it.

Extremely appreciative of the shout-out. I almost picked it up "on sale" for $20 last night directly on Steam and thought, "No, it'll get cheaper than this.".

Thank you for proving me right.  :D
