Any good places to browse/download PC game demos?

Honestly, the lack of demos on PC really sucks. Sure, there are a few demos on Steam, but it's rare that you get the same number of demos that the Xbox or PS3 end up getting. The big game demos that are on Xbox and PS3, don't mean that those games will get a demo on PC. I'm talking about multiplatform games that end up on 360, PS3 and PC. It's rare that you get a PC demo for one of the big multiplatform games.

So what are good sources for reviews on PC games? I usually go to Giantbomb BUT they are console focused unless you dig into the forums.

I actually use forums like this, as well as podcasts. Rebel FM is a pretty good podcast. They are more oriented towards consoles games in a way, yet most of the guys on there play their games on PC. So, they will talk about the big console games, but usually they talk about playing the PC versions of the games. That's pretty much the way I am as well, so it works out pretty good. Weekend Confirmed is kinda similar. Console focus, but a lot of the dudes play their games on PC. All that will probably change when the new consoles come out, but at least for now it works for me.

oh, forgot to mention. Gamers with Jobs podcast is an almost entirely PC focused podcast. It's actually a bit "too" PC focused if you ask me, with MMO talk, RTS talk and lots of indie PC game talk, (that I'm not that interested in), but other than that, it's a pretty good podcast. Sometimes they have really good guests.

Don't mind indie stuff but I can do without MMO talk. There are other genres right?
