Saints Row IV, COH 2 Get Free Weekend On Steam

War is hellarious

The weekend's just over the horizon and I couldn't be happier. Well... except for one thing. I'm terribly afraid, actually, that my Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are going to be too tonally consistent. No wild mood swings. No spine-separating ups and downs. What a drag, right? So thank goodness that both Company of Heroes 2 and Saints Row IV will be free all weekend on Steam. The silliest game of 2013 and the most brutal front of the most serious war, er, possibly ever. I can't wait to cross all of my emotional wires - to giggle out world-weary tears and give stirring, morale-boosting war speeches laden with dick jokes.

Both games are completely free to play starting now, and they'll continue scampering about without even a single price tag to cover their naughty bits and bytes until Sunday at 1 PM PST.

If you decide you want to purchase one or the other, they'll also be discounted until Monday. Relic's opus of cold and wars (but not cold wars) is 66 percent off, and Volition's super silly open-worlder has dropped by 50 percent.

Both are great, and Saints Row IV even won the admiration of the whole RPS hivemind (minus Alec, for some reason) on last year's Advent Calendar. Have you been holding out on trying either for some silly reason? Well stop that. You stop that right now.
