Be A Dinosaur In Primal Carnage This Weekend (It's Free-To-Play Right Now)

Not all multiplayer shooters have to be about terrorists, aliens, marines or zombies. Sometimes, they can be about giant carnivorous land lizards and the hapless folk tasked with slaying them. Except, you can play the role of either, depending on your appetite for crunchy humans.

That's Lukewarm Media's Primal Carnage in a nutshell. Like Counter-Strike and Natural Selection, it's a team-based affair with one side playing the humans and the other the dinosaurs. Both sides can select from five classes — a scientist, commando, pathfinder, pyromaniac or trapper for the former, while the latter can play the raptor, dilophosaurus, pteranodon, carnotaurus and nature's most fearsome practical joke, the tyrannosaurus rex (big body, adorably cute arms).

And here's where we link it back to the headline! The game is free-to-play on Steam this weekend, so if you're interested, now is the time to take a look. And if you do end up getting hooked, the price has been temporarily slashed 50 per cent, to $US4.99, which is still a good deal, even with the dollar slipping below parity.

    when I was a little boy, I always wanted to be a dinosaur, I wanted to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex more than anything in the world, I made my arms short and I roamed the back yard, I chased the neighborhood cats, I growled and I roared, everybody knew me and was afraid of me, and one day my dad said "Bobby you are 17, it's time to throw childish things aside" and I said "OK Pop", but he didn't really say that he said that "Stop being a fucking dinosaur and get a job". 

      If it makes you feel any better both my girlfriend and I did the same when we were younger and had similar experiences.

      Now we eat bbq ribs while watching Jurrassic Park.

      Never give up on being a dinosaur.

    I love dinosaurs and wanted to be a dinosaur for a long time.
