How To Shoot People For Free

Ah, the free weekend - a delectable demonstration that traditional box-bound videogaming is a relic of yesterday. It's stupidly simple to download a few gigabytes of game within just a couple of hours, then dispose of it without concern. It's done fine things for the likes of Team Fortress 2, Killing Floor and Unreal Tournament 3, so any bugger with an ounce of sense is trying the same thing. Currently, the unrespected Dreamkiller is at it until the end of the weekend - pick it up from Steam. Could a cheery overload of multiplay fun save it from its bad word of mouth? Plus, next weekend, Crysis Wars - the online component of Crysis: Warhead - goes free to play for 10 days. No Steam required there, but you do need to sign up to official fansite MyCrisis.
