    • SNK Collection should be renamed as Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection

      • Would be happy to do that but as you replied to the comment I cannot edit it anymore.šŸ˜‰

        • no worries..
          others can read my comment

          yeah it is shit that ozbargain does not allow editing our comment after someone replied or a time period has elapsed

          when I read SNK collection
          I thought it would have other SNK games like KOF etc..

          • @pinkybrain: Sorry about that. I just wrote the name from memory and would really love to follow your suggestion and edit.
            But of course, these games are fun too. KOF might come around some time again in a cheap bundle.
            Have a lovely night and weekend.

  • I dont know how you do it epic games, but keep it up…. I am slowly being converted to use you in addition to steam.

  • Hey, I'm on mobile and when I click on the "Get" link, it just sends me to the game's main page. I'm stuck in a loop.

  • What ever happened to [PC] Free - Samurai Shodown Neogeo Collection (Was US $39.99) @ Epic Games?
    Doesn't show up free, is it any good?

    • This is why I don't pay for games anymore :) I may need to pay for a computer upgrade to run all of these game though.

    • Epicgames giveaway just being so much better than steam giveaways (which consist of a lot of crap in my steam library)

  • Anyone has experience with installation failed on EPIC game launcher?

    • Not failed to install, but the launcher fails to run on my win 10 laptop error 0007b something. Which I understand to be a lack of current drivers or .dll files. Have not found a successful fix. Super frustrating.

      Is this similar to your issue?

  • Pathway is great! It's a nice blend of XCOM style combat and Faster Than Light exploration.

  • Got The Escapist from a previous epic giveaway. Thought I might have to buy the sequel. Good thing I waited. :D

  • Following so I know when escapist comes

  • I had a reminder for this on the start date (which was today at 1am). I didn't get any notification though, anyone else in the same boat. The last few notifications for my reminders on the Epic store haven't gone off either.

  • Why does this game get so many upvotes? Its graphics is bad, like from a really old nindendo and its just realeased. Even contra and mario looked better. And most of us will just add this to library and probably never even play it. I am not complaining, just asking why almost 300 votes?

    • Because this is OzBargain and gamers here have an addiction with large game libraries. I know because I'm one of them.

    • Gameplay is fun.. not all bad graphic games are bad

    • Are you saying that about the escapist 2? It was released like a year or 2 ago and the graphics is a design choice. Not all games are made to be photorealistic. Minecraft, one of the biggest games of all times is literally about box shaped objects with low poly counts.

      • Minecraft was released a decade ago.

      • Minecraft is in a league of its own. It was an old game and to add to this it also allowed players to build worlds, SO MANY options when building, allowed one player to enter other player's world and what not. Cant compare both. I was speaking about the Pathway BTW.

        • Ok well that's understandable then lol. I had never heard of pathway until this deal, the same still probably applies tho, it's often an artistic choice.

          Also, to answer trapper too, Indy studios and smaller studios don't have the budget, manpower and time to make something with hyper realistic graphics. Games that do are made by multi million dollar companies with 100's of staff working on specific parts of the game and those games still take a long time to develop. If an indie studio even tried doing that, they would have to work on it for decades and they would run out of money well before it even gets to the detailed art stage anyway.

          • @AlmightyBeing: That is all true and I agree, I was simple referring to the upvotes for such a game that most people I know will just add to thier libs and probably never play :) I mean who really has the time when tere are so many AAA games pending to finish for many people :D

            • @John Doh: Yeah I haven't finished a game in like 5 years

              • @AlmightyBeing: I just tried pathways and immediatly uninstalled it. Why? Such horrible graphics and boring game play. I have decided to never add such games and clutter my library because there is no way I am playing it and there is no way to remove the games permanently from the library!

        • I also struggle to play games with subpar graphics (PUBG for me).

          But games which are designed around 8 bit graphics can be great.
          Enter the gungeon
          Crypt of the necrodancer
          as a few of my current favourites.

    • It is weird how so many great indy games go for the 8 bit look.

      Just hire some flipping artists ffs

  • Thanks op. Not sure when I'll get a chance to play, but nice to have in the catalogue

  • Still no The Escapists 2. I wonder what's going on why it's still delayed.

  • Thanks OP… still no The Escapists 2 though :(

    • Epic tweeted an update saying they are still working on it and it will still go free.

      • Hopefully they'll just add it onto next week's freebies rather than this week. I'm just use to logging into their app every Friday morning to grab free games now.

  • We're currently investigating an issue and are working to find a resolution.

    Sounds like the 'issue' is that they'd lose too much money and are waiting for most people to forget about it before making it available. Or is that too cynical?

    • Too cynical

    • Didnt have time to edit my response before but they could be enjoying increased daily traffic (and consequent sales) from people determined not to miss out on the Escapists 2. But personally I don't think this is the best title for such a trick. I think it's an innocent cock up

  • Is there any update to the Escapists at all?
