I'd be interested in either Hitman or Overwatch bud, if they're still free :) Will let you judge which I'd probably like better given you know my tastes!

I'd also be interested in you picking a game you'd like for me to get you in return, else I'll pick something randomly from your Steam Wishlist as a thank you and return Christmas gift ;)

Decisions, decisions! You seem to have developed a bit of a taste for online multiplayers just recently (both shooters & battle royales) so I think I'll go with Overwatch. Still one of the best out there atm, plus since I know your backlog is always growing it should be a nice game for you to just pick up and play whenever you fancy ;)
(Will send you a Discord PM with it tomorrow bud!)

As for getting me a game in return for Christmas, don't feel you have to as I wasn't expecting anything in return from anyone but if you really want to (in no particular order): These are some of the games I made a mental list of throughout the year which I missed picking up at release for one reason or another but would still like to play sooner rather than later. Feel free to take your pick from those if you want mate - though wait until the Steam sale if you do! I believe it starts this week (Thu evening) <3

Thank you very much bud, claimed :)

I'll find you a good choice from that list in the next day or so and PM you details :D

Dark Souls III, always been a souls junkie, loved the series since Demon Souls.

I still need to play Dark Souls II & Demon's Souls at some point (hoping we'll one day see a remaster of the latter) but I loved the original Dark Souls & Dark Souls III, Bloodborne would probably be one of my top 3 games of the generation as well tbh. Can't wait for Sekiro in March :D

Enjoy! :)

I'd like to claim Hitman if available. I've been wanting to play it for a long time and it should be a good one to test out the new PC. Thanks for offering up a very generous giveaway this year, MS!

I'd like to add in a couple spare games of my own, both I highly recommend as a much better alternative to the current Humble Sonic Bundle:

Freedom Planet: Takes the retro Sonic formula to the next level in a way that no other game attempted until Sonic Mania. This game started its development as a Sonic fan game and became a Kickstarter sensation. It fully lives up to the Sonic legacy of "gotta go fast" with a cast of animal characters featuring a variety of different abilities.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams + DLC: My favorite indie platformer of the decade. This is a fast-paced and difficult sequel to the Commodore 64 "Giana Sisters" game. Switching between the two sisters on the fly changes your abilities, and also switches between two iterations of the world. You'll need to utilize both sisters and both worlds to master each stage.

Typically I'm on a low-spec rig at the mo (integrated graphics!) I don't think any of them will run! :lol:

If the rules change and we can have more than one gift, then I would like to have Seven the days long gone. Happy Holidays everyone :D

There's a couple of days left on the giveaway so I'll open it up to a second game. Will PM you Seven: The Days Long Gone on Discord shortly, Molgia. Cities: Skylines will be going to Anny too :)
I think I'll do another one of these next year (should I have a nice amount of titles again) so anything left over will likely get thrown in with the next giveaway I do :thumb:

With the giveaway wrapping up, I'll go ahead and double dip as well. I'd like Mankind Divided, so I can finally finish up the Deus Ex series.

Thanks again to MS for running this amazing giveaway, and for giving us some great surprises for the holidays :)
