Free Overlord & Penumbra Overture

GameTap has added this week's selection of new games, including a couple of freebies. Their new premium games are Gas Powered Games' Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance and Treyarch's Die By the Sword: Limb from Limb. For you cheapskates, there are two new free games, as Codemasters' fantasy action/adventure Overlord will be free for the coming week, and Penumbra Overture is also now free, offering the chance to play the middle installment in Frictional Games' horror/adventure trilogy.

Gold membership is basically access to Gametap's entire catalog through it's player for 10 bucks a month. They occasionally rotate their gold games into the free service for a week (as in Overlord's case).

Depends on the game. Overlord is this week only. Penumbra goes until November 5. Supreme Commander is for Gold Membership only (not sure what that is). Die By the Sword has a broken page for me.

Overture is the first Penumbra game. Black Plague is the second.

The Gametap site won't load for me @ work, are these games free to download & play for just this week only or free to download this week only and available to play indefinitely?

I've wanted to try Overlord since it came out; just didn't care much for the demo. Anyone try these free games from Gametap? It's a fairly large download for only a week of play. Wondering if it's worth it, or if Gametap is going to load my machine up with a bunch of extra crap.
