Remember back when demos came out before the games themselves? Better late than never, I guess. Some six weeks after Bulletstorm hit retail shelves for the PC, a demo has found its way onto Steam and the Games for Windows Marketplace. The demo is a hefty 1.8GB download, so you might want to get an early start on it.
Bulletstorm has been pretty well received on the PC, garnering a Metacritic score of 83 with a 7.3 user rating. Our own Cyril Kowaliski is having a lot of fun with the game, too. The demo's free, so there's no reason not to give it a shot. I hear it even runs on Sandy Bridge integrated graphics.
Speaking of free games, the latest iteration in the Battlefield franchise is completely free to play. Literally. After a brief beta period, Battlefield Play4Free has opened its doors, allowing freeloaders to customize their characters and jump into online firefights. Rather than relying on advertising to cover the costs associated with Play4Free, players will be wooed with in-game items that can be purchased with real money. Thanks to Shacknews for the tips.
