The Week in Demos and Patches: May 25-31
It has been a pretty interesting week what with Ubidays, Age of Conan, Mass Effect releasing for the PC and whatnot. This however cannot be said about the amount of demos we received which, if you ever even read these posts – is not a huge revelation for you. This is okay by me though because I have to bathe my dogs this weekend and if you think that is not a chore, try giving a bath to a 120 pound German Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix who refuses to get out of his leather chair. Yeah, that’s him above – Yeti is his name, and he sure as heck lives up to his name.
Here are the demos that hit FileFront this week:
