Out today you can download the Omega DLC for Mass Effect 3 for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Just like all of the other Mass Effect 3 DLC this one is free. This one however adds to the already incredible campaign, as Shepard heads back to Omega to help Aria T’Loak take it back from a dickish Cerberus general. Check out the action packed launch trailer past the break.
Ninja Theory’s colorful take on the Devil May Cry series won’t be out until January, but that isn’t stopping them from giving us a taste of the game’s first DLC, dubbed Vergil’s Downfall. The DLC will bring with it a brand new storyline featuring Dante’s twin brother Virgil, as well as new weapons, attacks, enemies to attack with your new weapons, and places to paint with the blood of the new enemies you just attacked with your new weapons. The DLC will be made available soon after launch — that’s January 15 for those keeping track — and will cost 720 MSP on XBLA, or $8.99 on PSN. Punch that ‘Read More’ button in its stupid ugly face if you want to check out the DLC trailer.
Mass Effect 3′s next DLC entitled Omega, has you joining up with Aria T’Loak, and Nyreen Kandros. Omega has been taken by Cerberus General Oleg Petrovsky, and Aria needs Shepard’s help to take back the black market station. 4 playable missions will be in the DLC. I’m not sure where in the Mass Effect timeline the DLC falls, but I suppose the only way to find out is to buy it! It comes out November 27th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. Screens past the break.
Everyone pay very close attention to the trailer past the break. I look at it as a huge hint towards making your way through the DLC. The new DLC is known as ‘In Motion’. In Motion however is a Playstation 3, Playstation Move exclusive. Yes you heard right. It was designed specifically for the Playstation Move. And it looks damn complicated. You’ll be able to portal surf, scale objects, among many other new crazy tricks. Sixense Studios who are behind the creation of In Motion are also working on making the entire game Playstation Move compatible. Once the DLC is released it will run you $9.99. Check out the trailer past the break.
Nuketown was definitely the favorite map in the original Black Ops. Whenever it popped up in voting, I never saw it get voted down, or for new map choices. If you check out the video past the break you can see the pre-order exclusive map Nuketown 2025 trailer for Black Ops II. It looks AMAZING. The map looks more like a neighborhood street rather than just 2 houses. And it still has that awesome classic look to it. Check it out, and don’t forget if you want the map you have to pre-order the game before its November 13th release.
I really enjoyed the open-world crime game Sleeping Dogs, and I love me a good horror-themed expansion. If you’re looking for something to play between visits from treat-hungry kids, I highly suggest checking out the new Nightmare in North Point expansion for Sleeping Dogs. Unfortunately, unlike Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare and Infamous II’s Festival of Blood, this is not a standalone expansion, so you’ll need a copy of the game to play it. It’s 560 MSP for the Xbox 360 or $4.99 for the PS3 and PC — but really, how can you put a price on beating down Chinese vampires with your magical fury fists? Feel free to click that Read More button, as it will transport you to a magical land that a launch trailer calls home.
Killing Floor is one of the few games that offers kick ass holiday events. Well this Halloween will be no different as we are thrown into one of my worst nightmares. Hillbilly Horrors! It’s running now until the November 6th, and for the duration you can get 75% off Killing Floor and 50% off all DLC for the game. The DLC comes with a completely rednecked out new map, new weapons, achievements, an unlockable character and more. Head past the break for all the goods as well as a bunch of new screens.
The last time I went trick-or-treating, I was dressed in full Nemesis attire, complete with big leather jacket (with a stunning Umbrella logo stitched to the back), rocket launcher, and boots that added a good 3-4 inches of pure terror. It was hopelessly geeky and way over-the-top, but at the time, I felt like a total badass. Now, I can relive those fond memories, sans Nemesis ensemble, in the new Halloween update available now for Guild Wars 2. NCsoft and ArenaNet don’t want to ruin anything since they’d rather you see it for yourself, but what we know is it adds a brand new story that follows the return of a king who was slain by his own people, trick-or-treating, special costumes, and holiday themed crafting recipes. Much of the new content is temporary, so if you want to enjoy it now, you best act quick. It’s free, so you have nothing to lose.
I’m not the biggest fan of cats. I’ve been allergic to them since childhood, so that only adds to my dislike of them. Well The Secret World is introducing us to it’s first holiday/seasonal event and it’s going to be crazy Halloween madness. In the latest update which is live now, players head back to Stonehenge to face off against the Cat God. His main move is spraying you with Tag Body Spray for sick cats….Check out the video below and get creeped out and join me in the coalition against cats!
I absolutely love it when a developer dives into my favorite genre; this can be with a full retail game or with DLC, and it seems that the latter has become increasingly popular over the last handful of years. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned brought Halloween to Borderlands, Undead Nightmare for Red Dead Redemption, Festival of Blood for inFamous, and Lost in Nightmares for Resident Evil 5 (Zing.).
Not much is known about the Sleeping Dogs expansion, other than it’s called Nightmare in Northpoint and will bring a lovely dose of horror to the game when it releases on October 30th. If you don’t own the game already, you really should give it a try — I hear it’s pretty good.
Here’s some good news for Resident Evil 6 fans — Capcom is prepping an update for the game that will bring with it a new difficulty mode dubbed ‘No Hope Left’, as well as co-op support for the previously single-player exclusive Ada scenario. Ada’s campaign will also be unlocked from the beginning, so you’ll no longer have to work for it, you lazy bum. “Said campaign was meant as a solo affair for Ms Wong, but odds are you’d like to play through it again with a pal – soon you can!” Capcom said on their blog, and I couldn’t agree more. Leon’s is easily my favorite of the bunch, and Ada’s may very well be a close second.
For those of you who might still be on the fence about the game, I suggest checking out our review. For the rest of you, who here’s played the game, and if you have, what do you think of it so far? Do you like what Capcom’s done with the game or is it time for another reboot?
If you played the Mass Effect series and know a bit of its lore, the Collectors posed quite a threat in the second game. Well those punk bitches are back in the Retaliation DLC. That’s not all though. This pack is going to be HUGE. One of my favorites is an addition of “hazards” to the regular maps. Lightening, sandstorms, whiteouts and more.
New weapons, new class kits, new upgrades, some of the enemy factions will be getting new allies to fight against you. This DLC is really going to change the mulitplayer up. You only have to wait until October 9th to get it. Though waiting until Tuesday sucks because there goes your week. You can download it October 9th on the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 for free. Check out a trailer and some screen shots and all the details past the break.
I hope you don’t cry easily, because this one’s a tear-jerker. If you looked really closely during a certain scene in Drew Goddard’s The Cabin In The Woods, you might’ve noticed a few unexpected cameos. Without spoiling anything, though seriously, if you haven’t seen this brilliant film yet, you need to remedy that immediately — the Witch, Boomer, and Tank from Valve’s Left 4 Dead series can be seen doing their thing in a scene near the end of the movie. I noticed the Boomer when I saw it in the theater, but I didn’t notice the other two, or Alma from F.E.A.R., until I watched it at home where I could pause it every half-second to more easily soak in that fantastic final act.
Apparently, there’s a reason behind this. During a recent Reddit AMA, Goddard explained the reason behind the appearance of these characters. It’s a little spoilery, so head past the break for more.
Capcom recently detailed their plans for the post-release DLC for Resident Evil 6, and it’s nothing but good news if you’re looking forward to the multiplayer features. Among the DLC are three new multiplayer modes — Survivors, Predator, and Siege. There will also be additional maps for Mercenaries to look forward to as well. More details after the break!
Mass Effect 3 has been more than generous with the free DLC. And guess what, we’re getting more! This time the fight is being brought to Earth. The DLC is named Earth. Because why not? Since the DLC is free, I find no qualms with buying a shit ton of Veteran Packs. Like usual the pack will include 3 new maps, 6 new characters, new weapons, upgrades, a new in mission objective and more. Head past the break to find out about all the goodies you get, and look out for the free DLC on July 17th in North America, and the 18th in Europe.
You’ve got to give it to Killing Floor. Not many games have that kind of staying power. A lot of games float in an out, or just float right out. But since its release it has kept quite the steady fan base. They keep it up with DLC, and special holiday events that keep people coming back for more. The Sideshow Event is back from last year, and it takes you on a ride you’ll never forget. Though, you will want to because most Circus ANYTHING freaks me out, and especially makes Adam pee his pants. The event runs from 5th July through 23rd July. Head past the break for the event trailer and all the info you need!
I’m friggen excited for Dust 514. If you want into the beta as bad as I do, you can either wait to be chosen at random, or, you can purchase the Mercenary Pack and automatically gain access to all betas until release. The price, 20 bucks. Supposedly a 50 dollar value. Like they tell you in all those infomercials. You want the mini schticky? Buy the regular schticky and we’ll include a million more for free. A bazillion dollar value, yours for just $19.95, call now to order. Head past the break for all the goods you get in the Mercenary Pack.
Since Mass Effect 3′s release gamers all over the world have been up in arms over the ending. My sister likes to randomly tell me how her life is ruined because of the ending. Well, redemption is almost at hand. Tomorrow, today, wherever you are reading this June 26th will be the release of the Mass Effect 3 – Extended Cut DLC. Those in Europe will have to wait until July 4th. The dlc will be a massive 1.9gb so prepare your hard drive for it. What the Extended Cut is, is basically scenes explaining and showing what was implied by the original ending of Mass Effect 3. What happens to those effected by the choices you’ve made and so on. To ear more head past the break and check out the audio from a Bioware podcast. The extended cut will also be FREE.
If you’re a Mass Effect 3 fan, or Mass Effect fan in general and you haven’t yet dove into the multiplayer you don’t know what you’re missing. The Rebellion Pack was just released on Tuesday FOR FREE, and it’s totally worth every penny. But seriously, with the release of the Resurgence Pack and now the Rebellion Pack the multiplayer experience keeps getting better and better. There is a total of 10 maps now, more characters than you can handle, a new equipment slot, oh man I can’t stop drooling. Check out the Rebellion Pack trailer beyond the break.
I’ve said it time and time again to any unfortunate soul who happens to be sitting next to me at the time that one of my biggest complaints about the near-perfect Skyrim was how little Bethesda expanded on the vampire underworld. You could get infected and become one, and if you read enough books you could learn more about the various covens scattered about the world, but other than that it remained largely untouched. This makes Dawnguard, the game’s first expansion, all the more exciting because not only will we have the chance to learn more about the vampires, we’ll get to fight in the war between them and the Dawnguard. It also looks to be introducing new vampire forms, mounted combat, fucking ghost horses. Check out the debut trailer, after the break. READ MORE
I’m hooked on the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. I don’t know what it is but I love it. Yes, many times I find myself yelling at the tv because the cover system isn’t as perfect as Gears Of War. But it’s still incredibly addicting. With each new multiplayer it gets better and better. New weapons, new characters, and new maps keeps bring me back for more and more. The Rebellion Pack brings the largest change to the entire multiplayer system. 2 major factors in that are new in mission objectives, and new gear slots. Find out more and check out some screenshots past the break. The pack is out in North America on May 29 and in Europe on May 30.
Remember the good old days when eventually Bungie would make their multiplayer maps free? Well guess what, THOSE DAYS ARE OVER. Companies want your money, and they want it bad. You know back when Nintendo and Super Nintendo were around, you could normally pay 60-100 dollars per game. Well, most games now are stuck on a 60 dollar price point. Clearly that isn’t enough. With some games you’re looking to spend at least 100 dollars over the life of the game to get all the DLC. If you have the patience you’re better off waiting for a game of the year edition or for a dramatic price drop. Well, amidst the ashes of all your wasted money, Uncharted developer Naughty Dog and Sony have decided to let you have all of the DLC for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for free. Head past the break for the DLC list.
Whether or not you’re a fan of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, something they definitely got right was how the DLC was managed. The strategy of handing out bite-sized portions of action a few weeks apart to keep us playing the game with some extra weapons sprinkled on in case you’re looking to spice up your arsenal is a good one. The first Spec Ops mission was free and was followed by the first batch of paid missions a few short weeks later, and for those of us who wish to finish the Spec Ops story you can do so now with the final Spec Ops mission pack. The four-player co-op is where it’s at with this game (mainly because the Versus mode sucks) and it looks like they’re fully aware of this. Now if only Capcom could learn to stop charging players for multiplayer modes–you have to pay for the Nemesis mode in ORC, similarly to the Versus mode in RE5–because that cuts the available players when searching for a game by a lot. If you want to see how the Spec Ops campaign ends I suggest you make sure you have $10, or 800 Microsoft Party Girls available and go check it out.
Later this month one of the best games of 2011 will be getting its first DLC. Coming May 29th to Batman: Arkham City is Harley Quinn’s Revenge, an all new story-based expansion featuring everyone’s favorite madwoman and the last batch of content coming to the game. It brings with it roughly two hours of single-player action where you’ll have the chance to kick unsuspecting goon ass as the Dark Knight and his wee sidekick Robin. If you haven’t had the chance to play Arkham City, now is the best time to do so since the Game of the Year edition is coming out on the same day. You can nab Harley Quinn’s Revenge for a paltry $9.99 on PSN or 800 Microsoft Who-wears-short-shorts-robin-wears-short-shorts Points on XBLA.
