'Speedhunters' DLC races to SHIFT 2 on May 17

[Update: Original story now with more video!]

Our very own Mr. Destructoid has found his way into videogames, but car-tuner website Speedhunters is getting an entire Shift 2 Unleashed car pack named after it!

The "Speedhunters" content pack brings two new branches to the game, including Drag and Standing mile, each with nine events a piece. For all of you automatic transmission wimps out there, know this: you'll only be able to use manual in these brand new events. Electronic Arts says that the game's traction control features will be turned off, and the HUD will display a brand new rev counter and gear indicator.

A content pack without new cars isn't a content pack at all, so you'll also get Chris Rado's World Racing Pro-FWD Reaper Scion tC and Koz's Dodge Viper GTS by Twin Turbo. That's in addition to the 12 Speedhunters-tuned vehicles, which range from Nissan's to Mazda's.

The full list of cars and new tracks for the 800 MS Point/$9.99 pack can be found below. It'll be out May 17.

Apparently some people are upset at Hyrule Warriors Legends calling it "the most expensive DLC", to quote a well known former writer of the site "they're Nintendo fans, that's what they do" complain.

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

My opinion on Tomba has changed, now I dig it again. Stay tuned for updates.

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

Team Fortress 2 just got a massive community-made Invasion update. SFM short, reskins, cosmetics, and 4 brand new maps?!?! God, I love this game and its wonderful community so, so much. [youtube][/youtube]

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
