Saturday Shorts: Crysis for cheap, L4D2 Midnight Riders, Brink, DMC sale
Some weeks just eat you alive, or at least grab you by the neck an maul you a bit. To cope, read up on some smaller things that don’t bite as hard.
- Did you know that if you purchased Brink via Steam you can pre-load it? You did? Oh, well, we told you again anyway, know-it-all.
- Blizzard has some new StarCraft II t-shirts you can wear this summer.
- CNN has listed what it thinks will be the summer’s hottest games.

- Ever wondered what a cross between Halo and Portal would look like? Wonder no longer.
- There’s quite a few places on the net hosting a demo for Panzer Command: Ostfront.
- Dibalo III’s Facebook page was liked enough to where a couple new screens were released.

Be sure and do something nice for your Mother tomorrow. We mean it.
