Star Citizen!? Well that explains the large "Anonymous" funding leap last week.

The only game that interests me is Alien Isolation.

I wonder why they put AvP 2010 on there ? It's a little old for a game pack

A lot of AMD friendly devs are throwing their back catalogues. Square enix's Just Cause 2 being a prime example, an Nvidia game originally.

So how would we get the star citizen thingy? We redeem a code and then we get a few ships or what?

Though I am surprised they have 2 Total War games on their, guess Sega(publisher for the game) and AMD have a good relationship. Pretty sure Sega is also publishing Alien Isolation too. That's 3 games from one publisher.

Having JC2 on there makes no sense as it has Nvidia exclusive graphical features even if it is a SE game and they primarily now work with AMD.

Don't think it matters much. Its just another option for the consumer to choose from.

At present you have a choice of some great PC games here.

It is especially good for newcomers who haven't got a lot of these games.

I agree and IMO its the sole reason why they are doing this. The PC market in comparison to consoles is growing and if they can get all the newcombers coming over and throw in some free games that are actually quite good, then its better business for them. Can't forget they need to get some market share back to remain more competitive.

In the past year AMD's GPU market share has increased, unlike Nvidia's

A lot of that is low end APUs though
