Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday photo
Pac-Man CE DX+ is ridiculously good and free to play on Steam until Monday
by Jordan Devore

This week on Steam, you can check out the superb Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ for free as Namco plays the part of a "friendly" drug dealer. The promotion lasts until Monday at 10:00am Pacific and in that time the game and its DLC are 66 percent off.

Building up a huge chain of ghosts -- a ghost train, if you will -- and then eating them all in the span of a couple seconds is so damn satisfying. See that image up there? Uh huh.

Just play this already. Cancel plans. Shun responsibilities. There is only time for Pac-Man, now.

Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon photo
Guild Wars 2 is throwing a free trial week soon
by Jordan Devore

On Thursday, ArenaNet will kick off a week-long trial for Guild Wars 2. You'll be able to play the MMORPG for free from 12:00am Pacific on September 25 until 11:59pm Pacific on October 1.

Trial accounts can be opened ahead of time, so I'd suggest you go take care of that now to maximize your time. Note: there are some restrictions placed on trial players.

Just last week, community member Solar Pony Django put up a blog to generate interest in potentially starting a Destructoid guild. Take a look. Keep forgetting I own this game.

PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend photo
PS4 online multiplayer will be free this weekend
by Jordan Devore

Weekends sure are good at going by too quickly. It's only Monday morning and I'm already wishing it were the end of the week. Sony isn't helping, either -- its unlocking online multiplayer for PlayStation 4 owners who aren't subscribed to PlayStation Plus this weekend.

Those users will gain access starting Friday, September 26 at 12:01am Pacific and it'll carry through Sunday, September 28 at 11:59pm Pacific. All you need to do to take part is log into your system during those times -- simple as that. What to play, though.

Kill time with Bejeweled 3 now that it's free on Origin photo
Kill time with Bejeweled 3 now that it's free on Origin
by Jordan Devore

It may not carry the same weight as past "On the House" offerings like Dead Space or Battlefield 3, but the latest freebie from Origin, Bejeweled 3, is a great game in its own right.

The popular match-three puzzler is free to download for PC and Mac until October 28, 2014.

It's about what you'd expect -- both from the genre and Bejeweled, specifically -- but sometimes the familiar is all you really want. Lots of modes in this installment. It's pretty fun.

Download Halo: Reach for free with Xbox Live Gold photo
Download Halo: Reach for free with Xbox Live Gold
by Jordan Devore

Now through September 30, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download Halo: Reach for free through Microsoft's Games with Gold program. And those of you with an Xbox One still have the rest of the month to nab the excellent Super Time Force. Just putting that out there.

Reach has the distinction of being the last Halo game I was even moderately into, though my memory of it is mostly hazy. I do recall struggling quite a bit toward the end of the game. Funny how of all the things I could remember about my playthrough, it ends up being the painful part.

Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today photo
Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today
by Jordan Devore

Wolfire Games' Receiver is a first-person shooter unlike any other I've played.

Instead of a quick button press to reload your gun, here, reloading is a much more realistic, multi-step process that requires effort on your part. As in, you'll need to actually practice. Also, levels are randomized and there are creepy drones out to get you. Good luck!

You can and should experience Receiver, if only for a few moments, especially now that it's free through the Humble Store. Offer's good for today only. Be sure to redeem your Steam key by September 29.

Now, when I say this is a decent month for Club Nintendo game offers, I'm asking you to focus on Kirby Super Star, Super Punch-Out!!, and Art Style: PiCTOBiTS. Two Super Nintendo classics and an awesome, underplayed puzzler. Go ahead and ignore the rest, if you would.

At long last, I'll be able to get a shiny Gengar photo
At long last, I'll be able to get a shiny Gengar
by Jordan Devore

Gengar only became my favorite Pokémon in the last few years, but now that it's my bestie, I don't see that ever changing. (Sorry, Feraligatr.) Matter of fact, I'd even be willing to step foot in a GameStop for a distribution event related to the ghostly Pokémon -- true love.

There are two events planned for Pokémon X/Y in the United States this year and both require leaving the house. The first one is for a shiny Gengar with its Gengarite Mega Stone, obtainable via a "special code card" at GameStop from October 13 - October 26.

The next event is for Diance -- claim yours from October 27 - November 16 at the game retailer. The Diancite Mega Stone isn't included here; you'll need to earn it in either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire once those titles launch on November 21.

by Dale North

Xbox One-owning Xbox Live Gold members can play Forza Motorsport 5 for free this weekend, starting 12:01 a.m. Pacific time September 4, running through midnight on Sunday. The entire game is available for free play. It's a big ass download so you had better get started.

During this weekend event, Xbox Live users in USA can qualify for a chance to win a trip to the Forza Motorsport Grand Prix road Racing Class at Bondurant, located in Arizona. All expenses are paid for the three-day trip.

Watch out for my Drivatar.

by Mr Andy Dixon

Mr Destructoid has gotten his greedy little hands on some codes for the Spacecom beta, and he's decided to hand them out to the Dtoid community! (This is actually quite generous of our robot overlord. He normally eats things like this.)

Spacecom is a strategic starfleet command game with a heavy focus on multiplayer, and you can enjoy the beta from today until September 11. To claim your code, just click here! (Huge members, click here for your reserved codes.) Then just login to Steam and redeem it there. Be sure and let us know your thoughts on the game in the comments below!

Weren't fast enough to claim a code? Think about becoming on of our Huge members! They get preferred access to beta codes such as these, automatic entry into contests, ad-free browsing, and more!

September Games with Gold: Super Time Force, Halo: Reach, and Monaco photo
September Games with Gold: Super Time Force, Halo: Reach, and Monaco
by Jordan Devore

Next month's Games with Gold lineup is among the service's best yet.

Xbox 360 owners who are subscribed to Xbox Live Gold can nab Monaco: What's Yours is Mine for free from September 1 - 15, followed by Halo: Reach from September 16 - 30, while Xbox One owners will have all of September to download Super Time Force.

Shame about the Xbox 360 version of Super Time Force not being included here, but if you're thinking of playing it there I'd recommend going for the Ultra PC release instead.

These are your free PlayStation Plus games for September photo
These are your free PlayStation Plus games for September
by Steven Hansen

Not a bad haul. Sportsfriends is great for local co-op. PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale probably is, too. I've been meaning to go back and play it since they added Kat from Gravity Rush. And TxK is a real good Vita game. Hoard (PS3) is, uh, probably okay.

Joe Danger is hitting the Vita, too, along with Velocity 2X (PS4, Vita). Both are going to be free with PS+ right at their launch.

ChAIR is wrapping up Infinity Blade III with its final update next week photo
ChAIR is wrapping up Infinity Blade III with its final update next week
by Jordan Devore

As part of my slowly-get-out-of-bed routine this morning, I glanced at my inbox and was delighted to see an email pop up on my phone about ChAIR. Could this be it? The announcement of another Shadow Complex? We've been waiting years for a follow-up!

Nah. It was just a press release for some more Infinity Blade stuff.

The studio is preparing its final update for Infinity Blade III, a free download dubbed Kingdom Come. It'll hit the App Store on September 4, 2014. There's going to be a new environment, more items and weapons, a dragon -- the usual. ChAIR has also put out a recap of the series, viewable above, with some of this new content featured here and there.

I liked the original Infinity Blade fine, but I'm eager to see this team move on to another project.
