Bridge Constructor is in the new Humble Bundle

There's a single game above all others that has me interested in Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9 and you can probably guess whi--yeah, it's Bridge Constructor. What gave it away? If you're confused as to why I'm so happy abou...

Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold photo
Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight are April's free Games with Gold
by Jordan Devore

The featured titles in Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion have tended to not be compelling, I think most of us can agree. April shows signs of improvement, with Hitman: Absolution available to Xbox Live Gold members for free from April 1 - 15, and Deadlight offered from April 16 - 30.

I hadn't yet played the game, but our own Brett Makedonski shared this advice for Deadlight: "Get it for free, play the first bit, then put it down forever."

Let's hope this pair is the beginning of moderately good things to come for Games with Gold.

Dead Space is free if you're willing to put up with Origin photo
Dead Space is free if you're willing to put up with Origin
by Jordan Devore

In an effort to get you to finally install Origin, Electronic Arts has begun a new On the House promotion in which "full games, expansions, and more" can be downloaded for free.

The first selection is one those who can deal with horror games ought to play: Dead Space.

Frankly, I'm not sure what else would convince someone to play this for the first time in 2014 other than it being given away for free. While Visceral lost its momentum with Dead Space 3, the two prior games are absolutely worth playing for genre fans -- they hold up well to this day.

Play Wii Sports Club for free this weekend photo
Play Wii Sports Club for free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

As announced last week, Nintendo is giving Wii U owners the opportunity to play Wii Sports Club for free today through Sunday, March 23 at 11:59 PM Pacific. There are three games available currently -- Tennis, Bowling, and Golf -- and the latter just got a new nine-hole Resort Course.

Outside of promotions like this, these sports are $9.99 each to own, or $1.99 to rent all of them for 24 hours on the Wii U eShop. Nintendo is offering this particular free weekend in the United Kingdom as well, by the way. Too bad Baseball and Boxing aren't out yet!

Now all I need is to hire a bunch of actors to portray my family. I like the look of those old folks.

Civ Rev and Dungeon Defenders are March's Games with Gold
by Brett Makedonski

Well, we're certainly at the point where we know exactly what to expect from Microsoft's monthly Games with Gold promotion. If you're new to the process, it typically features two games that are generally considered to be good, but a bit too old. That doesn't really change in March.

This month's offerings are Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution and Dungeon Defenders -- two games worth checking out if you hadn't gotten to them before. As is the case with these things, Civilization Revolution is free for Gold subscribers through March 16, at which point Dungeon Defenders takes over and is free for the remainder of the month.

Burnout Paradise 'Legendary Cars Collection' free today photo
Burnout Paradise 'Legendary Cars Collection' free today
by Jordan Devore

Criterion has made the Legendary Cars Collection DLC for Burnout Paradise free today on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (in North America) in memory of actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis.

The pack contains four vehicles all of which are references to famous cars in pop culture. There's the Jansen P12 88 Special (Back to the Future), the Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger (The Dukes of Hazzard), the Carson GT Nighthawk (Knight Rider), and last but not least, the Hunter Manhattan Spirit (Ghostbusters). Worth taking the time to download, in other words.

"Harold Ramis was a comedy genius," said Criterion. "He inspired us." A true legend indeed.
