Fitgirl Repacks – PC games

If you’re a regular PC gamer then you’ll love this site. She’s compressed already cracked games to usually much smaller file sizes than you’d expect. This helps greatly in regards to seeders and storage, but the downside is that the decompression can take a good while for the largest games (4 hours for GTA V). She offers different download options, but I pick the magnet link as they start almost immediately in...

There’s still probably 5-6 seconds lost that I could make up, but to be so...
