The Stanley Parable

The Stanley Parable is a puzzle-like, first-person exploration game which portrays a somewhat dystopian office environment.

TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN – This story takes many turns and
twists to keep your day exciting!

With fun and cartoon-like graphics, you don’t need to worry about your PC specs to run the game. However, the game still looks great using lighting to make the different environment feel unique.

The Stanley Parable explores morals that not many other games do. Just be prepared for a confusing but exciting story based around dimensions and paradoxes.

It will be great to see the fan base grow once again after it’s release over 6 years ago!

Watch Dogs

Watch Dogs received… mixed opinions at release. With much of the negative feedback coming from the unrealistic trailers portraying the game as it isn’t.

If you put this to one side, Ubisoft has created a great and expansive universe.

HYPE KILLS GAMES – Watch Dogs demise is mostly due to the
false marketing.

With Watch Dogs Legion on the way, we recommend you pick this one up, to begin the Watch Dogs Saga.

If you enjoy causing havoc in urban environments (similar to GTA or Saint’s Row), Watch Dogs is a great game to add to your collection.

Watch Dogs 2 is considered superior to this game, improving upon features that are missing from the first game, as well as fixing a lot of bugs present in Watch Dogs.

However, to get the full experience, you MUST play the first game. It’s also a great way to get to grips with the mechanics of the series.


As the current free games end on the 19th March, these two new games will be available.

The dates run from the 19th March to the 26th March.

If you want to get a hold of these games, make sure you can get on the Epic Games Store between these dates.

After this, they will go back to paid games, and we’ll see two (possibly three) new games to become free on the store.
