This innocuous looking beast from

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)

is an Arctic Fox. I don't recall them being named, and unless you've played the game you might not understand why I chose this as my entry.
You have to control both to play, and the relationship between the girl, Nuna, and Fox makes deaths mean something in this game: you feel the anguish & sorrow when one reacts to the death of the other.
This endearing fox left me wishing I had a fox companion to adventure with.

Reminder: grab the

Clockwork City DLC for ESO for free July 2nd

as the daily login reward!
If you didn't get one of the thousands of copies given away on AWA, T4bletopG4mes mentioned you might own it from when Epic Games gave it away.
Not installed due to space? Use Nvidia Geforce Now, and your Steam or Epic Games account to run it and login.
The daily reset times depend on which server you play on, so check your appropriate time to see when you can login in and claim it.

For anyone fortunate enough to get an Elder Scrolls Online key a while back when they gave away thousands upon thousands of them here,

ESO July Login Rewards

include the Clockwork City DLC on July 2nd.
Login that day to get it.
If I recall, their day resets at 2 AM EDT, so anytime after that you should be good to claim it.
(I can never tell if stuff like this should go in Game Talk or Deals and Freebies, but last time I posted in Game Talk and I don't think it found it's audience there.)

Elder Scrolls Online ESO Plus trial

is on right now for all those who own the game.
You have to initiate it, and then you can get the benefits until June 19th, 10 AM EDT.
They do this from time to time, and apparently you can participate every time they do it.

Lol, been busy and I hadn't noted when the challenge was meant to end, so I prepped this only to come post it and find out that it's over and the winners chosen.
Still sharing anyway, cuz it's purdy.

Depth Hunter 2: Deep Dive

Very relaxing game (except for when I drowned early in, not realizing I couldn't stray too far from the surface until I improved).
No, I'm not hunting the ray. Seeing the ray and a turtle happen by was always a highlight whilst fishing.
Congrats to the winners.

Helldivers 2 Community Event

I don't have the game myself, but apparently around 1000 of you do and not everyone has played their minimum hours yet. The event is currently underway: play the game, get the rewards! There's enough of you that you can get to the final milestone if everyone helps.
Team lifting required!

300,000 bloodpoints!

NOTE: the game engine update requires basically downloading the game again (10-33 GB, depending on the platform).

ESO FTW

The Elder Scrolls Online invested heavily in our community, giving away a tonne of keys and in-game goodies. Community support even after an event has met milestones may help convince possible future partners they'll get a good ROI, and could help AWA when they're negotiating events for us. Please consider picking ESO as your Choose Your Own Steam Quest and log some extra hours to thank them.
Starting on the 15th, ESO also lets you earn a DLC for free (more info in the comments about that)

I would just like to thank the peeps at ESO, and AWA for a) the huge amount of keys given away, b) having the event when the game is on sale for a very reasonable price, and c) having the event when the game is having a free to play week, ensuring as many community members as possible can participate.
Can't imagine how much work went into making that all happen (especially so close to the end of the Warframe event), and it's greatly appreciated.

Me, with my first vehicle. I was a pretty good driver by then, but navigating in light years was new to me (you can only take rentals locally), so I wound up lost and way off base.
Luckily, some no-longer-hip hippies helped me hide the ride in plain sight until I was able to get it somewhere safe, and get settled here.
Wandered this planet for a longish time (Human-wise), and finally found my true brethren at AWA (more of us aliens here than you may realize).

Well, this is weird, the footer text is not mine.
I recall someone else having that as their footer, though.
Not sure how it wound up under my avatar.
Maybe when I edited that post to add an @?
Though, the person I @ ed doesn't have that as their footer text either.
The text seems apropos for this situation, though.
Fix the bugs, please.

Couple of things:
1. They listened to us and brought back the deals and freebies forum a while back (accessible from left side link on relays page if you scroll down), and I just noticed it's now possible to create new posts there (wasn't when they first brought it back).
2. DBD codes:
KONTROLFREEK - 50k Bloodpoints, unknown expiry
STEELSERIES2024 - 50k Bloodpoints, expires in less than 24 hours
Edit: @Only4War1988 mentioned another code: AMD - 50K Bloodpoints
