THQ trades Metro 2033 codes for Facebook likes

THQ just can't stop giving away copies of Metro 2033. The publisher is handing out free Steam codes for the sleeper hit Oprah-style to anyone who "Likes" its THQ Demos Facebook page, not to mention including it in the cheap-as-you-are Humble THQ Bundle.

Speaking of the bundle, it's grown a few games since we initially reported on it and ends tomorrow. Now users who pledge above the average (currently $5.69) will receive Steam codes for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, Titan Quest, and Red Faction: Armageddon's Path to War DLC on top of the original slate.

We'd feel pretty silly about actually paying for Metro 2033 at this point if we didn't enjoy its creepy post-apocalyptic Russian atmosphere so much, and THQ's surely banking on adding a few more fans to the series in time for sequel Metro: Last Light's release next year.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
