Don't think there is. It's not that hard to do though.

Plus if you're not a member of GOG already it's worth joining, because you can grab some other free games.

If anyone likes Halo you should grab ElDewrito. It's a free Halo PC Online game https://eldewrito.com/

You don't need to own the game on PC, it's all in the download links. I've played it a bit and there are heaps of servers because you can host your own quite easily.



Edit: This might even be better suited to it's own thread or the Halo thread (which I'm sure exists somewhere)

And we do have a Halo thread!

I've been messing with this for a while tonight. It's pretty good. Trying to get some mates on it so we can get a game going. It's mainly Halo 3 but it has some other stuff in it. No campaign though.

Arrested Overwatch cheaters sentenced in South Korea

Back in 2016, South Korea passed a law that made distributing cheats for video games illegal. Back in January, we learned that 13 Overwatch cheaters had been arrested following this law change, and now two of them have been officially sentenced.

As confirmed by Blizzard Korea, one offender was hit with a fine of 10 million South Korean Won, which works out to be just under $9300. The second offender had a different punishment, there is no monetary fine, but this person will have to serve two years on probation. If they violate the terms of their probation, they would be hit by a prison sentence.

The maximum penalty allowed under these new laws is five years of jail time, or the equivalent of a $40,000 fine. There will be more sentences to come too, as only two out of the 13 cheaters arrested have been handed a punishment.

This follows on from news last week, where 15 people in China were arrested for creating and selling cheats for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

KitGuru Says: We’ve seen more than a few game makers get tougher with cheaters over the last few years, with legal action becoming more consistent and expected.

Wow, for game cheats? I assume Gamefaqs is banned in South Korea.

Abe's Oddysee is free for a limited time on Steam


EDIT: for some reason it shows the Oddboxx for me on that link, but when I click it I can see Abe's Oddysee in the list for free.

Thanks Skynet. The Oddboxx is quite cheap, even with free Abe's Oddysee.

Missed out on Abe but think it was a freebie on GOG a while ago.
