If you have a device capable of it, the Amazon App Store gives away a paid app for free every day. Sometimes it's something stupid, while other times it's really good (didn't pay a cent for the first 2 FNaF games on mobile).
And Apple's App Store gives away a free app every week, for those on iOS.

    The Guild Wars 2 is a F2P? Since when? (And why wasn't I told?)

    It's not truly F2P. You still have to buy the game; just has no monthly fee.

    Doesn't require the purchase anymore.

    If I remember correctly, the initial game is now free, but you still have to buy the expansion if you want access to its content. When it first went free to play, Reon and I tried it...I found it boring, but in fairness he seemed to love it.

    GOG.com already had this bundle on sale a couple of weeks ago, but now it's back! And this time I just grabbed it, last time I tried to do the adult thing and save my money, but I just ended up regretting it.

    https://www.gog.com/promo/20160615_summer_bundle_star_trek

    For $4.76 the bundle includes:
    • Star Trek: The 25th Anniversary
    • Star Trek: Judgment Rites
    • Star Trek: Starfleet Academy
    • Star Trek: Starfleet Command Gold Edition

    They can also be purchased separately for $1.19 each (last time this wasn't possible). (*)

    What a coincidence! I was just thinking about Judgement Rites last night...I think it's one of the best Star Trek games to have ever came out. Also just recently watched a let's play of Starfleet Academy, which also presents some interesting scenarios to work your way through. :D

    Judgment Rites is 1.3GB, that was unexpected. ??? But oh well, I guess there must be a reason for that, and I bet it's good. :P

    If I remember, Judgement Rites has voice-acting from all the main characters and a few video clips, so that could be taking up a lot of that space.

    Star Trek: The 25th Anniversary Edition seems to have proper voice acting as well, and it's only around 500MB. ::)
