@RogueSix,

So, if I can translate this properly, what you're saying is, you'll collect a turd game as long as it's free? Am I hearing that right?

Damn right, bro . I haven't skipped a single EGS freebie. You never know what it's good for and maybe my taste in gaming is gonna go crap in 10 years and then I'll be happy as a pig in a poke when I have some shit games to play! Forward-thinking, dude. FORWARD-THINKING!!!

TIL RogueSix can time travel.

It aint XCOM 3, but for free, it's definitely worth the asking price.

Yeah, it’s a card game for people who like card games and deck builders. It’s nothing like XCOM aside from some minor tactical and research elements.

The comparisons to XCOM probably resulted in a lot of disappointed gamers and contributed to the poor sales.
Yeah I waited to see because super hero anything I tend to avoid in the first place. Adding cards just made it a no go for me since I wanted a less random tactical experience. Even the recent article about the game design with Jake Soloman said that cards was maybe not the best move design wise.

I think cards can work, in fact, it turns out I very much enjoy deck builders like Balatro (though I have major criticisms of that one, too.)

But if you gave me a box with a big red button, and told me that I could push the button and kill 20,000 random people but also get XCOM 3 by Jake Solomon, if spend way more time staring at that button than a decent human being should.

Well you're a better man than I am because I would be tap dancing on that bitch

Do you take requests? There are a few games I'd love to have free, if you can prioritize them so they happen sooner.

I don't generally play or enjoy card games, nor do I follow the Marvel universe at all, but overall I really enjoyed my time with Midnight Suns. The card and tactics part of it was solid, and really fun.

They went way overboard with the Abbey content though. Not often you see a game where it would so clearly be better if it just shortened or cut some parts, but this is one... The dating minigame and gift matching in particular, ugh.. Had to sit there with the Wiki on my laptop next to me, because I just couldn't be bothered, but wanted to maximize friendships for the combat power Unless you want to do extra laps, i.e. artificially extend the game, you kind of have to make the stupid gifts and conversation choices count, and can't just ignore that part of the game.

Pretty much a no brainer if you like comics. This game did a much better job of representing characters than pretty much any Marvel movie. You actually feel like you are rooming with a bunch of heroes, getting into petty squabbles, settling disputes, spending quality time together. It's a bit more than just a card game as there is combos, battlefield position, weaknesses, some minor researching, collecting gear, exploration, etc., in addition to the cards. Quality game imo.

If you like XCOM style strategy/management games and aren't sick to death of superheroes, you might really like this. No reason not to try it now.

Great game by the makers of the Firaxis XCOMs. The downtime exploration and the superhero relationship simulator can be hit or miss though. Very unfortunate that it sold like shit and we will never get a sequel, or better yet, a similar game set in the x-mansion featuring all the x-men.

The DLC is also pretty good and worth getting on sale.

Nice. I've gotten hundreds of free games from Epic, but I've only played about a dozen or so (not that different from my Steam account honestly ). This will definitely get a play.
