You are telling me you are talking about the iOS version of Injustice as part of your free games friday when it's free all the time. 

Big waste of space on an iOS device

That version of RnR was complete garbage, waste of a download

I think that OSU is a really good time killer too. This is a FTP rhytm based game by the way.

I'm really liking Wildstar. Didn't expect to, honestly-- I've been instantly disappointed by just about every MMORPG that's come out in the last few years, with the exception of GW2.

Injustice: Gods Among Us for free sounded too good to be true. I clicked the link, and it turns out that it's the mobile version that's free, not the console version. Thanks for the massive letdown, GameSpot, as always.

@CatAtomic999  It's a fun, solid game with a lot of stuff to experience. I've had it preordered from day uno and have not a single regret.

@CatAtomic999 Only played it for an hour, but so far not impressed. I'll give it some time, however I doubt I will be buying it. It's a good MMO, but after playing so many others, it just doesn't have anything exceptional to keep me.

@GameSpot  Any chance you can get some codes for us for Injustice: Gods Among Us on PC not mobile :)

@Sl4cka @CatAtomic999 yea I dunno, i think i've seen more that I probably won't like about it than like, but i'm still going to try it based solely on dungeons/bosses giving you a sense of accomplishment.  crazy that's absent from 99% of the mmos nowadays.
