For all those kids out there frenziedly ringing doorbells or knocking on doors till your knuckles hurt: If no one’s coming out to rain candy into your little plastic jack-o-lantern, they’re probably just taking advantage of OnLive’s Halloween weekend of temporarily free-to-play games and too busy to come to the door.
OnLive selected four Halloween-appropriate games — Orcs Must Die, F.E.A.R. 3, Metro 2033 and Amnesia — and is allowing users to select one to play for free this weekend only, essentially giving anyone who signs up a free three-day rental.
Sign up for a free OnLive account, download the OS X app, pick a game and you’re off and hacking. Here’s a link to the promo for more details.
When he was eight, Eli Milchman came home from frolicking in the Veld one day and was given an Atari 400. Since then, his fascination with technology has made him an intrepid early adopter of whatever charming new contraption crosses his path — which explains why he's Cult of Mac's test editor-at-large. He calls San Francisco home, where he works as a journalist and photographer. Eli has contributed to the pages of Wired.com and BIKE Magazine, among others. Hang with him on Twitter.
