If you still haven't decided if you want to buy Modern Warfare 3 on PC, then get downloading as you've got until Monday to get in as much free multiplayer action as you can muster. To help sway you further, there's 33% knocked off the game's price.

I have to imagine having free mulitplayer weekends for games must help shift lots of extra copies, and a quick glance of the Top Sellers list on Steam shows MW3 in second spot just pipped by the newly released PC version of Alan Wake. I've enjoyed playing previous free weekends to discover new games like Dawn of War 2 and Killing Floor, but surely you all know what MW3 is gonna play like, right?

Still, it would be interesting to see why people are buying the game now. Is it the price drop that's swaying them now or is it gamers finally getting a big taste of the game's multiplayer action? Are any of you guys going to pick the game up now, despite the fact it's four months old and you will probably get slaughtered (okay, that might just be me)?

Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games

“Destiny is the worst game I can't stop playing” I keep hearing this, or variations of it again and again from my friends, all of whom seem unable to escape the jaws of a game they all claim to hate. And you know ...more

Why I love The Last of Us multiplayer, in a nutshell

We're outnumbered, down to our last pair of lives. The clock is ticking, it's as much of a threat to my team's survival as the four armed men bearing down on our position. I don't like our chances, not one bit, but moments like this, they're the reason I play the game.more

I never thought Super Mario Bros. would make me so angry

In a cramped beachside arcade, sandwiched between Galaga and Mortal Kombat 3, sits my white whale. It's surrounded by restaurants, a roller coaster, churro vendors, and a carousel, this sad little Super Mario Bros. arcade cab...more
