    I'm beginning to think that our celebration of The Summer Of Free at CGC will have extra relevance this year, as many people will be aiming to save money and looking for free entertainment. And since I have a note in my work schedule to begin my Summer Of Free research today, I thought it would be wise to invite you guys in on the process if you have any ideas. So I will try to pin this topic or flag it or whatever so that it is easy to see and update. Whenever you have a suggestion for geeky entertainment that is 100% legal and 100% free to anyone with an internet connection, please be encouraged to post it here! Thank you!

    Valiant Comics has released their Ninjak vs. the Valiant Universe movie for free on YouTube. It was a webseries, but they've combined all the episodes together to make it a film.

    It features characters from the Valiant Comics universe such as Ninjak, X-O Manowar, the Eternal Warrior (played by WWE's John Morrison), and Bloodshot (played by the Green/White Ranger himself, Jason David Frank). This was Bloodshot's first official live action portrayal, even before the Vin Diesel movie.

    I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know if it's any good, but it was definitely made with a lower budget than anything you'll see in the theater.

    NINJAK VS THE VALIANT UNIVERSE - The Complete Webseries
    From Valiant Entertainment and Bat In the Sun Productions

    Colin King is Ninjak, MI6’s deadliest intelligence operative and weapons expert. When the ruthless assassin Roku exploits his greatest weakness, Ninjak will be forced to betray his closest allies. Now, on the run, he must face off against the most powerful heroes known to man for a high-octane, take-no-prisoners trial by fire more perilous and more unpredictable than any he’s faced before.

    Nice, Reed! I did some quick skipping around the video. Looks like about CW TV production budget quality but without CW TV "Flavor". That's a step in the right direction for me!

    Here's a couple shocking freebies for PS4 owners I just learned about! Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection & Journey are both free from April 15th-May 5th. And reportedly if you get them during that time they will remain yours forever, NO PS+ Subscription required!!!

    Oh, Man! Never before have I so wished that I had a PS4.
    I love the first 3 Uncharted games but haven't been able to play further than that in the series.

    I don't know if this counts, but my book Countless as the Stars is on kindle unlimited, so sort of free-ish if you're a subscriber... but I will be running a free promo on amazon later in summer for non-subscribers Smile

    Criteria requires 100% free for those with an internet connection and home computer. (Although I'll be breaking that rule a bit featuring print & play games this summer.) But let us know when that free amazon promo starts!

    Although I ended up not reviewing Desperados 3 this week, I caught the news that they are releasing a free PnP Western RPG to coincide with the launch of the video game. You can get it now at: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/316116/Desperados-A-Pen-and-Paper-Roleplaying-Game

    If anyone tries it out or even just reads the rules I'd love to hear what you think!
