You have two options this weekend -- you can tackle that list of chores you've been meaning to get done, or you can fire up Steam
and play Call of Duty: Ghosts
for free. Yes, we said FREE! There is a hefty download required, but beyond that, you can hop in and enjoy the game and all the recently added features, such as Heavy Duty mode.
If you end up a CoD convert, you can snag the game for half price. Ghosts is on sale through Steam for $30 instead of its normal $60 selling price. And if not, well, you can jump off the free ride whenever your want or enjoy the free weekend, after which Steam will lock things back up.
While you're checking out games, be advised there's a Ubisoft sale taking place. A select few titles are marked 75 percent off, such as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon
($2.49) and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
($2.49), to give two examples. The vast majority are 35 percent off, like Far Cry 3
($19.49), Rayman Origins
($12.99), and Rayman Legends
($25.99). There will be new deals added daily up through February 24, 2014, Steam says.
So, what will you be playing this weekend?
