If for some reason you budget your video game spending by the weekend, then here's good news: you can spend that money on something else. May I suggest: nicer food. A new pair of shoes. A trip to the nearest theme park.
The reason is, Steam is making ten games free this weekend as part of its aptly titled Free Weekend promotions. The games include Company of Heroes 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Grid 2. You'll have over 48 hours to play them, as they unlock 10am Pacific time on Thursday, October 16. After that you'll need to pay for them, with the promise of substantial discounts.
Here's the list:
Awesomenauts Blade Symphony Company of Heroes 2 Don't Starve Grid 2 Injustice Killing Floor Payday 2 Trine 2 XCOM: Enemy Unknown
It's a good week for free games: GOG.com is giving away Alien versus Predator Classic this week as part of a GOG Galaxy test run.
I liked GRID 2 quite a lot but I’m some kind of racing simulation heathen who has no qualms incorporating a little bump and grind into the art of the automobile. Codemasters manage to avoid the phrase ‘going back to our roots’ when describing the newly announced follow-up, GRID Autosport, but a lengthy and informative blogpost suggests that’s exactly what they aim to do.
On release of GRID 2, I think it s fair to say that through listening to you guys and a after a substantial amount of reflection, we hadn t quite achieved everything we set out to do…we re not above admitting that we made a few decisions that perhaps we shouldn t have, and perhaps moved some of the aspects of the game too far away from our core fanbase.
What does it all mean? A flashy teaser, an enticingly close June 27th release date and a pile of information to wrap your head around.

As the birthplace of the industrial revolution, Derby is no stranger to acrid fumes and the grinding progress of metal on metal. Perhaps that’s why it’s the place that cars choose to wage war against one another in designated arenas? Grid 2 has now added just such an arena, along with a suitably violent car to smash around in it. Oddly, Codemasters reckon the car-crashing facility is in Detroit but that seems unlikely. If this isn’t taking place in the East Midlands, I’ll eat a carburettor. If you’re still playing Grid 2, it should now contain more destruction. The Masters of Code have also added light modding support but I’ve yet to return to the game to check what that involves. Below you will find culture.
