Prepare For A Stolen Weekend: Heist Is Free On Steam

By Craig Pearson on March 2nd, 2012.

They're frowning on the inside
Ooh, I’m in PSA mode: bank-robbing FPS PayDay:The Heist is free on Steam this weekend, and 50% off if you choose to buy it. Dan Gril loved it, and I concur that it’s an excellent mash-up of gaming and film influences: everything from the opening sequence of The Dark Knight to Heat is mined and tossed into a Left 4 Deadish co-op run and gun. It’s kind of the perfect weekend game, if your idea of the perfect weekend is shooting policemen and being able to get to sleep at night afterwards. And if you’re not planning to play this, why not tell us what you are up to that’s so important that you can afford to ignore a free game? It better be damn good.

First-Person Shiner: 12 Mins Of Nexuiz

By Craig Pearson on February 27th, 2012.

The Free-y of the Fury

By Kieron Gillen on December 23rd, 2007.

Now we don’t normally link to games we haven’t had a chance to play yet, but this screenshot caught my eye from Fury and found its way into a quick festive post.

Sexy vomit

You see, it’s particularly seasonal, because it’s suitably snowy and prominently features a bloke apparently projectile vomiting bile green stuff. And if that doesn’t get a link on RPS, I don’t know what does. Anyway – the news being that Fury, an online action-paced RPG thing, has added a free-to-play option (“Chosen”) which allows you to get a taste for the game for no Earth pounds. If you don’t get horrified by the grammatical apocalypse of “Free 2 Download + Free 2 Play = Free 4 Ever!”, you can get it from here, and then get stuck into feeling aggrieved you have no Voice-chat and a limited friends list.
