Saints Row: The Third free to play, on sale this weekend on Steam

Saints Row The Third free weekend, sale on Steam
Despite its crass and often offensive tone, Saints Row: The Third was quite well done, and turned the well-traveled sandbox urban action genre on its head a few times. Don't believe us? This weekend is your chance to find out for free, as the game is free-to-play until Sunday over on Steam. For the cost of your bandwidth and an hour or so of downloading, you can take a trip to Steelport, and be both disgusted and thrilled at the same time.

And if you like the game as much as we did, you can buy it on Steam for just $13.59, 66% off of the standard price. This one's not for the kids, but it is as much fun as you'll have flying around in a hovercraft all year long.
