In Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine players take on the role of Captain Titus, Space Marine of the Ultramarines chapter and seasoned battle veteran. Facing a horde of countless Orks, you must protect the Imperial Forge World, one of the planet-sized factories where the war machines deployed for the never ending battle for humanity are created.

The Space Marine Collection includes all available DLC, including the Chaos Unleashed map pack, where you take the role of the Chaos Space Marines in a 4 player Co-op mode, and Dreadnought, allowing you to obliterate your friends in multiplayer as the heavily armored 12-foot tall Dreadnought. With additional maps, modes, character skins, and more, the Space Marine Collection is the ultimate Ork-stomping experience.

As an added bonus, we’ve introduced Steam Trading Cards to Space Marine! Throughout your journey you can unlock 15 trading cards, as well as badges, Steam backgrounds, and more!

The one certainty with news items about S.T.A.L.K.E.R. [official site] is there’s at least a 70 percent chance they’ve been planted by Jim. Thanks Jim!

GOG.com continues to blow the horn in support of DRM-free everything with a new game reclaiming service, which you can check it out for yourself in this generously placed link. The idea is that if you bought a game legitimately but the game no longer works because of unsupported DRM or other causes, then you can enter your original game key in order to get a free copy of the game through GOG’s DRM-free online store.

Discounts on the STALKER trilogy (which seems like the wrong way to categorise the series somehow, but never mind) tend to wheel around pretty often, but this is particularly good deal for the whole set. There a certain games which are buried deep in RPS’ DNA, and the semi-open world, post apocalyptic survival/horror/action STALKER is one of them. If you haven’t played them, you are everything that’s wrong with humanity missing out some of the most ambitious and atmospheric shooters of all time. … [visit site to read more]

PC Gamer

Want to play some free games this weekend? Steam's latest Free Weekend promotion has a couple to choose from, and they couldn't be more different. One lets you colonise an alien world, another lets you spray liquid faeces at buildings and people.

I'll let you decide which sounds more appealing. No judgements.

In one corner we have Firaxis's latest, Civilization: Beyond Earth. In the other corner, Volition's absurdist open-world comedy Saints Row. It's the full series that's playable, including Saints Row 2Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV.

I particularly enjoyed the latter two Saints Rows, which are enjoyably silly and perfect for a mindless weekend of laughs and carnage. If you are in the mood for something more considered, Beyond Earth is a perfectly good alternative. I'm not it's greatest fan—much preferring last year's Endless Legend—but our reviewer liked it a lot.

To download any of the games, head to their Steam page and click the "Play Game" button. You've got until Sunday to get your free time in, and each game is discounted until Monday if you like what you play.
