    Onlive recently announced on their facebook page that you can get the indie title "Zeno Clash" for absolutely free by entering in a promo code during purchase. The deal is Onlive is giving away free indie games for 3 weeks and this weeks just so happens to be Zeno Clash. Not only that but if the facebook post which mentions this deal receives 1,000 shares by next week they'll post another code not only unlocking one indie title but two. Onlive has done something like this in the past where if they reached 62k likes in just four days they'd give the fans a code to buy any of their titles for $1 and had no problem reaching their goal (source).

    This is great for anyone wanting to try out Onlive. I'd go into details about what Onlive is but basically its a game service that steams games to your computer. You try out a crap ton of 30 minute demos for free if you want and enjoy watching other players play games as well all in real time. I know some of you are going to complain "This isn't news" or "User submitted news isn't for posting every deal that comes along" but one of the definitions of news is "previously unknown information" so if you didn't know about it then its news and I thought I'd post this because the games FREE. Still I just know someones gonna complain :|



    More details were posted on their blog post which is linked right there in the facebook message but basically all you gotta do is:

    Select “Marketplace”
    Select Zeno Clash (it is a featured game)
    Select “Get Game”
    Select “Full PlayPass” and click “Next”
    Enter in Promo Code (from step #1), apply it, select “Purchase”
    Start Playing! (Your game will be in your “My Games” tab for now on)

    Apparently you DON'T need a credit card to get this game for free. (Thanks RobertLeoDavis)

    Thanks man, Already have Zeno Clash on steam but good to have the onlive version for my netbook. I would have missed this otherwise. It looks like they are giving away a game each day until Sunday, sweet.

    Actually it's a free game each week for three weeks unless you heard something different? I wouldn't mind getting even more free games :P Here's what the blog post says:

    I've been a reader for some time, but I just wanted to register to let you guys know that a credit card is not needed. I don't have one on file and I just got the game with no problems.

    Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by that. In the past, a credit card was required to make any kind of purchase, even if you had a voucher like the one included with early Humble Indie Bundles. I'm glad they don't require it anymore.

    Really? did you use the site or the program? when I first heard about this I loaded up Onlive(program of course) and when I tried to click on next it said I didn't have a valid credit card registered :|
    I think it might have had something to do with the fact I had a credit card registered before and the code expired so maybe it checked and was telling me its not valid? either way I had to re-register my credit card.

    I'll change the post though.

    I still don't have much interest in OnLive, but hey, I'll give them credit for trying.

    Same here, when I first used it I needed a credit card. But now, I just loaded up the program, used the coupon and it let me "buy" it without adding a credit card. The Humble Indie Bundle vouchers (for Braid, Trine and I think World of Goo) still work as well, without the need of a credit card.

    Granted, it's not for everyone. I used to be a regular on OnLive, have games like Deus Ex, Borderlands, AC2, Batman, but those games are unplayable these days for me. For some reason, I keep getting Network problems 10 minutes after logging on.

    I think the future came soon enough. This platform will only shine when everyone has fibre broadband, which might or might not happen in the foreseeable future.

    For those of you not wanting to play this game with Keyboard/Mouse, are using the PC/Mac client and have a 360 controller with a controller translation app, here is my setup...

    LT - Right Mouse Button
    RT - Left Mouse Button

    LB -Space bar
    RB - R

    Left Stick W,S,A,D
    Left Stick Pressed Shift

    D-Pad - "NOT USED but if you want you can map it to WSAD or keep it blank for navigation of the OnLive menu"

    A - ENTER
    B - "CURRENTLY NOT USED"
    X - E
    Y - C

    Right Stick - Mouse Directions
    Right Stick Pressed - EDIT: Also map this button to the left mouse button (FOR SHOOTING ONLY)

    Start - ESC


    Back - "CURRENTLY NOT USED"

    Also I use Joy2Key. It's a free app. I don't mind sharing my setup files but only if it doesn't break any forum rules. IMO, this game could use some motion controls. If anyone have any suggestions on a Wii Remote/Nunchuck to Keyboard/Mouse app I could use to make a new setup, please feel free to give details below.
