What better way to spend this weekend than going to space? Since that’s probably a bit out of budget for most of us, though, maybe staying in and playing games is a better idea.
Get locked, loaded, and totally Triassic with class-based PVP combat – it’s MAN! VERSUS! DINOSAURS! in the ultimate survival of the fittest contest. The only thing you really need to know is that, yes, you can play as a velociraptor. The rest is just bonus.
Get it over on Steam.
Natural Selection 2
Combining humans, aliens, first-person shooting, real-time strategy, and a whole lot of heavy firepower just to see what happens, Natural Selection 2 is your one-stop destination for unmitigated chaos.
It’s also out this week on Steam.
Team Fortress 2
Valve’s free-to-play FPS is doing its annual Scream Fortress Halloween thing, mixing all sorts of spooOOOooooky stuff into the game until 8 November. That includes an extra-special, extra-scary, haunted version of King of the Hill featuring a “a bomb-spewing, fate-spinning spectral magician”. Any resemblance to next week’s American presidential election is, I’m sure, quite coincidental.
