The Week in Demos and Patches: March 31-April 5
The release of GTA IV is just around the corner, and if you are holding out on purchasing any games because you are saving your money for Rockstar’s latest hit, then maybe a few free demos will keep you occupied in the meantime.This week, we only received seven demos and since there are so few of them, I decided to list all of them instead of just randomly picking the ones you may or may not be interested in, and you can view all of them after the break.
- Space Force: Rogue Universe
- Frontlines: Fuel of War
- Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties
- Lost Empire: Immortals
Demos that hit this week were the following:

- Rigs of Rods (Linux) : Rigs of Rods (also known as RoR), is a truck, car, airplane and boat simulator. You can drive, fly or sail in total freedom in an open environment. What makes RoR different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics: vehicles chassis and wheels are simulated in real-time as flexible objects, giving the simulation an extremely accurate behavior, while allowing the vehicles to be simply specified by their structural composition, as a network of interconnected nodes (forming the chassis and the wheels).
