Well time to see what all the fuss is about.

Food spoils, demos should too.
No! Demos should last forever!

Does it really need an ending?

You missed HL2 Episode 2. Vortigaunts free Gordon from G-Man, new Combine invasion is being prepared, major supporting character dies in front of you and it fades to black. Pretty big cliffhanger.
Yep, and you just gave him and others many spoilers if they are going to play it! :O

Don't forget its soundtracks. 2D PoP1 and 3D's SoT were the best of the series.

Maybe you were thinking of 2D PoP2? That game had soundtracks throughout, including contextual music for fight scenes and other events. 2D PoP1 had hardly any music, and was basically silent of music, except for the title screen, game over, and some fanfares for special events.
Sorry. I meant SoT's soundtracks only.

Great game, and unexpected to be free. Sequels weren't that good though.
I agree that the first (PoP:SoT) of the "new" remakes was the best.
A lot of interesting bits in trailers that never made it to game too.
The story in sands of time was riveting to me.
Yep. Don't forget its soundtracks. 2D PoP1 and 3D's SoT were the best of the series. I played their sequels and even their first 3D game before SoT. Oh, and I watched Disney's movie/film.

Dude, I know you're an Ant but unless you are using some wicked ant tech to translate ant language to human language I'd suggest to maybe, you know, umm... read the fookin' news you are commenting on?

But since I'm generally known as a nice guy and exemplar to society I shall answer your question: YES.
Oops, I missed that. My bad. Too much craps today! Now, you know why I don't game anymore!

Will there be SE upgrades for those who already bought the older editions?

Game is dead. A shame. They should have suppprted modding with a framework but with each patch needing lots of blind mod changes most of the kodders have left alomg with the players.
Dead? It still looks active to me.

Why don't they end these on Monday at 1PM when the week long deals or whatever takes over is beyond stupid.

Because as I noted above, the point of the free weekend isn't to reward you for using Steam, but to convince you to buy a game you otherwise wouldn't buy. If the free weekend ended at midnight right before Monday morning, you'd likely say "well that was fun, but it's time to get to bed before work, and I don't want to buy this right now if I'm not going to have time to play it until next weekend." When it ends at 1pm on Sunday, when you still have plenty of time to play, you're much more likely to buy the game to keep playing.

I'm not saying this is "right" or anything, but I would think it would be pretty transparent why it ends at 1pm on Sunday; it's because they want you to actually buy the game, not just play the free weekend and never look back.
Ah, good point there. Trying to get more sales. Also, I forgot that the free weekends start on Fridays. It still sucks for those are BUSY on weekends though.

They need to replace free weekends with free weeks. Friday to Friday or something of that nature. Not all of us are free on weekends, but that's the only time they ever host these.
Ditto. I hate it when they end on Sundays at 1:00 PM PT. Dude, what about the 11 hours left of the weekend?
