    Hi people, this is open only to HH regulars, a competition for a key to Ghostrunner on GOG.COM which currently retails for 40 bucks USD. It is not my key that I got for the giveaway from Twitch.com, I already used that, I'm giving a copy away to someone however. I will provide a key to unlock the game. Ok, to enter all you need to do is post in this thread "I wanna slice up some bad guys!".

    Remember, regulars only, you know who you are.

    This competition will last from now to the 11th. Winner will be selected at random. Good luck.

    Here is a trailer of Ghostrunner just so you know if you're interested in the game:



    Edit: BTW I haven't played the game yet myself, but it looks good.

    Edit 2: I have decided to include Star Wars: Squadrons to the competition to sweeten the deal a little, it retails for around 45 bucks USD. If you win the comp, you get not only Ghostrunner, but this game too. It is an Origin key. Here is a trailer;

    I look forward to playing it some day, I like fast paced games, you need to be quick in thinking and they help improve your reflexes for those oh so important FPS games. Although, as I age I can feel my reflexes slipping.

    Well, unlike the two old farts posted above me here, my reflexes are fine. That's because I am part of the new generation who can't be bothered with you old timers for too long.
    Something tells me I already have the game so I won't be taking part in this competition. Good luck, have fun and nice of you Calliers for doing this.

    No problemo, it's nice to do something, however small, for the community sometimes.

    I just felt that there might be someone out there who might not have Twitch Prime, who wanted to get one of the free games offered and this is why I started the comp.

    Edit: On that note, I'm including another game, that is also part of the Twitch Prime giveaway this month - Star Wars: Squadrons.

    I wonder what Star Wars: Squadrons would be like with VR, I'm waiting till I have a headset one day to try it. For now it sits in my Origin collection. :)

    How I loved Mirror's Edge! Finished it several times. In the end, I took up the time trials and posted three star times on all of them. It was years after release, but on one map I got a run that was in the top 100 ever (and I didn't use the running start exploit).

    Anyway, I'm in! I like the cyberpunk flavour, even though the action does look a bit overwhelming!

    Grabbed a few minutes to play the first level. I died 32 times! :D :D :D

    The game gives you a huge adrenaline rush, but in a good way. Usually, I would think that a game like this would be too stressful, but that is not the case. On the contrary, the game has that "old school difficult game" kind of a draw that makes you to try and try again. There are no quicksaves (I think), but the checkpoints are close enough to each other, at least on the first level.

    BTW, it looks good and it runs well. I have an RX 580 and, at 1080p, the game was autoconfigured to the highest possible visual settings (including "Epic" for antialiasing), but it ran well. The trailer gives out a bit of a Mirror's Edge vibe, but the gameplay feels more arcade-like.
