Found 16th Oct 2014
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

If you've played grid 1 you'll be unpleasantly disappointed.

Heat, thanks! Any stand-out games in the list? I've only played coh2 which is great

I wanted 100% achievements, plus I enjoyed it so much and have also dabbled in multiplayer.

killing floor is a lot of fun but quite aged, x-com is superb and any strategy fan should have it (expansion makes it so much better).

might try coh2 myself if the download isn't huge

Yeah im hoping that XCOM: Enemy Within is also discounted, need to get it !

Can I throw in that Payday 2 is an excellent game, especially if you play it with three friends :-)

Sorry
The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again later.

Awesomenauts, Company of Heroes 2, Killing Floor, Payday 2 and Don't starve all on the download list..


It's good for a go, but personally I don't bother with these, you spend 1 night downloading a 10-20GB game to play it for 2 days.

Dont forget you can get a free copy of XCom by voting in the golden joystick awards:

There is a mention on there that they are out of keys, but I've just voted and got one mailed to me straight away.

Treat it as free rental or try before you buy. Downloaded injustice. Darn awesome beat em up! The story mode was very good. Halfway through.

Takes an hour or so on plusnet fibre, get about 8MB/s download from steam on wifi. For a 20gb file thats 20480MB, 8MB/s is 2560 seconds, or 42 minutes to download.

Do we get these forever?

Yeah, it's ok for people living in the city where they've upgraded to fibre optic, but my download speed is 1/8th of that speed.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

Company of Heroes 2 is a superb RTS game - Brilliant

I never bother with these free weekends, seems like a hassle to install them for a day or two. But I am tempted to buy Xcom, haven't played any of them before but it has pretty good reviews and I like to try different things every now and then. XCOM complete (all expansions) is £6.24 at the minute. Given the amount of hours the average reviewer seems to be putting into the game that seems like good value...
