Oh, not on Steam, but Origin has the entire Command and Conquer series for $20. I also have a GoG account, but they seem to specialize in REALLY old games.

On GoG, I have one of the old "AD&D" sets that I used to play on the Amiga BitD. Pool of Radiance, Hillsfar, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades... I originally bought Battle Chess and Pinball Fantasies from them, that was before they went to a "Steam-like" content delivery system. Made me really glad I'd kept the purchase e-mails.

Aside from the C&C series, I also have Zuma's Revenge, Jade Empire, and Ultima VIII on Origin. They give away games once in a while, and no matter if it's a game I'm into or not, I'll grab it. Hey, free is free.

Have been playing TFC a bit and it felt like coming home from a long journey.

Everything looked a bit dusty, but once I got the flow going I remember why it has always been my personal fav game of all time.

Really miss the good old tfc times

Nope, sadly I haven't played PC games for a long time

... but I really miss it and plan to start again someday - there just isn't a [popular!] game that makes me want to enough atm. Hopefully something that grabs me will come along soon but even if nothing does I'll probably eventually give in and start playing some FF/TFC/TF2/CSGO/QL/etc

Playing Rocket League at the moment. It's very silly but very fun. Movement based 3v3 / 4v4 multiplayer game playing football with flying cars.

I can't find anything else worth playing MP wise either. I'm either growing out of on-line play or games are shit these days. Not sure which. Plenty of SP games to keep me occupied though.

Yeah it looks fun, good to know it delivers I'll add it to my potential playlist but it doesn't quite make me want to go get the PC out the cupboard [yet!].

Anyone tried Overwatch?

Hardly been playing anything recently.

I'm wondering whether Doom is worth a new computer. it's multiplayer looks rather interesting.

RL is on xbox one and PS4 too

havent played overwatch yet - looks promising if they can put meaningful movement based objectives in and move away from the who-shoots-who-first tedium.

Overwatch looks like an ungodly clusterfuck.

Doom MP mainly just looks like halo. The latest campaign trailer has restored some hope for me in the SP though. A few shots of decent sized monster groups, assuming they're not even showing you the best parts it's possible we could get that "run and gun through hordes of monsters" feel back. Just so long as the game is plagued by qte's, shitty story expo, dumb shit like escort missions. (lookin at you quake 4 level one)

Yeah I know exactly what you mean and I have no idea if it will deliver for people like us in that (or maybe some other) way ... but at this point I'm very open minded and just looking for an excuse to unpack my PC and try something new if it's fun, popular and clannable

For what it's worth I spoke to an ex-TFC/TF2 player yesterday who's been playing the beta since November and he says he really enjoys it.

I don't have or want xbox/playstation - I have nintendo for noob-stick action in the living room which is awesome for that! I'm really wanting something I like on PC for all the community/clanning that can only really come with that.

I made a thread about Rocket League just before I saw this. Been playing RL fairly competitively for a couple months and always looking to connect with more players. PM me if you want to add my Steam. Maybe there could be a FF team.

Why do I have the feeling someone who plays FF or TFC works at blizzard and is secretly marketing Overwatch to us?

Yeah, it definitely has that "TF2" flavor to it. From watching the video, though.... it does look reasonably fast paced. Also looks like it may have some sort of grenades..... so it seems worth checking out.

That blizzard guy sounds like a good guy. Wasn't really interested in Overwatch, but now I'll keep an eye on it.

Just came across Lawbreakers.. the trailer looked fantastic

I am waiting for Overwatch. I believe we are going to see several TFC/FF players there

Lawbreakers definitely looks like it has potential. More movement possibilities? May not be concs but looks pretty dope.
