All six of these? Free? Really? Is the Joker behind this or something?

Epic Games

Pinch me, I'm dreaming. For a limited time (and while licenses last, I'm guessing), Epic Games is giving away six Batman games for PC. And not just crummy junk from the '80s or something. These are top-rated titles from the Arkham and Lego Batman collections. In fact, they have a combined retail value of $120.

The games come in two bundles, so you'll have to "purchase" them separately. To do so, you need an Epic Games account; it's free to sign up for one. To actually play the games, you'll need the Epic client software, also free.

Here's the list of included titles:

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Lego Batman
  • Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
  • Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

The Arkham games are definitely for grown-ups, offering dark, moody themes and blistering combat. They're all top-rated titles. As for the LEGO games, they're bloodless, puzzle-oriented delights -- ostensibly for kids, but plenty fun for adults as well.

My advice: Grab these while you can, before the internet melts and the licenses are gone. It's the single best game giveaway I've ever seen.
