It’s a blast from the past as SEGA has made several of its classic titles available for free as part of their annual Steam event, which ends tomorrow, Saturday, February 20. The event is Make War Not Love 3: A Bloody Valentine, and is underway right now, and it’s a chance for gamers to add a few SEGA titles to their Steam collection. The giveaway doesn’t have a set end time but gamers are urged to snag these titles soon!
Make War Not Love 3 is an event where Relic and Creative Assembly face off in a head-to-head battle, and participants are urged to play their side (their game of choice in the duel) as much as they can in the event’s time window. Every 48 hours, the leading side will unlock some of SEGA’s catalog and receive games free to download. They will also get a piece of content specific to the winning game for free after the event ends.
The best part of this event is that SEGA is awarding other players who are on Steam with goodies too. Streets of Rage II, Binary Domain and Condemned: Criminal Origins are now available for free to add to your Steam collection. To receive the games, you’ll need to head over to MakeWarNotLove.com, and click “Redeem Prize,” and SEGA will send you a redemption code.

CONDEMNED: CRIMINAL ORIGINS
“Condemned: Criminal Origins is a first-person psychological survival horror video game, first launched in 2005. The player takes on the role of Ethan Thomas, a crime scene investigation agent with the FBI’s Serial Crime Unit, as he traverses the seedier sides of the city. His journey takes him through a number of condemned buildings as he searches for the one who framed him for murder, the evasive Serial Killer X. Along the way, Ethan must use his investigative intuition and technology to examine evidence left behind by SKX, all the while fighting off the violently psychotic denizens of Metro City, who seem to be driven to such madness by a mysterious, yet seemingly extraneous force.”
“Binary Domain is is a third-person shooter video game, first released in 2012. The game is set in a world where global warming had caused worldwide flooding, leaving much of the world uninhabitable. As a result, robots were used as the main labor force. The game features a consequence system, which decides how non-playable characters in the squad views and trusts the player in story mode. The game also features seven different multiplayer modes, with five classes being available for players to choose.”
STREETS OF RAGE 2
Streets of Rage 2 is a side-scrolling beat ’em upvideo game first released in 1992. A year has passed since the events of Streets of Rage. To celebrate the defeat of the mysterious ‘Mr. X’ and his syndicate the previous year, Adam Hunter, Axel Stone and Blaze Fielding met at their favorite nightspot in the city and spent their time reminiscing about their vigilante crusade against ‘Mr. X’ and his organization. Axel and Blaze had moved out of the city after the adventure from last year. Axel has begun working as a part-time bodyguard and Blaze teaches dance classes. Adam has since rejoined the police force and lives in a small house with his younger brother. The next morning, Axel received a phone call from Eddie ‘Skate’ Hunter, Adam’s younger brother. Skate had arrived at home from school and was shocked to find his house in ruin and his older brother missing. Attached to the front door was a picture of Adam chained to a wall at the feet of Mr. X. The criminals began to retake the streets once more. Beatings and lootings took place regularly and in broad daylight. Chaos reigned in the city, far worse than before.”
