Another 'You've Been Chosen' teaser from BioWare

This second live-action teaser for BioWare's next game isn't as good as the initial one, but I found it ever so mildly interesting. No "smokeface" this time, sadly. While we know the project is set for a gamescom reveal next...

Titanfall's Frontier's Edge DLC is another okay, yet underwhelming map pack photo
Titanfall's Frontier's Edge DLC is another okay, yet underwhelming map pack
by Chris Carter

Titanfall was a good game for what it was -- a fun, but not revolutionary shooter. It didn't change gaming (or even the genre) forever, and some players abandoned it weeks after launch, turning many playlists into desolate wastelands. It was Unreal Tournament lite with mechs, basically. The end.

So far, the DLC hasn't measured up to the core game, but there are still two more packs to go. Today the second map pack titled Frontier's Edge drops, alongside of a very cool free update that brings a (non-microtransaction filled) store into the mix called the "Black Market."

The Black Market is actually a cooler add-on than the paid DLC.

Hardline 27: EA Access, Deep Silver's smooth moves, and decapitations photo
Hardline 27: EA Access, Deep Silver's smooth moves, and decapitations
by Jordan Devore

For this week's episode of Hardline, the major topic of discussion was Electronic Arts' new subscription service for Xbox One that offers full access to select games and discounts on digital DLC and full-game purchases for $4.99 per month, or $29.99 annually. Is it a good value, and if so, for who? Was Sony right to turn down the program?

Steven, Brett, and Bill also chatted with me about Deep Silver picking up Homefront from Crytek and why the lack of period-appropriate decapitations in Assassin's Creed Unity is a bit silly.

We had a technical mishap mid-recording that threw off our audio-video synch, so no video episode this week. Sorry! Just imagine Steven looking stoned and everything will be okay.

Double the RP, double the fun in GTA Online this weekend

How's your street cred doin'? It's probably taken a hit since you visited that indie coffee shop and volunteered at the local food shelter. Everyone thinks you're a softie now. GTA Online can help reverse that notion (at...

I've been looping Hohokum's OST all day and you can too

Sometimes I worry not enough of you appreciate how good Hohokum is. It has a poop factory.  It also has a great soundtrack, which I've been listening to on repeat for most of this dragging day. You can, too. Just click here. And if you like it enough that you want to buy it when it comes out on August 12, just click here.

Capcom made money this quarter without a big, new release

More quarter 1 for the fiscal year 2015 fun times. Capcom. Haven't heard much out of them while we wait for Monster Hunter. Their E3 line-up was slim. I played the 3DS port of the Ace Attorney trilogy. So, Capcom? Its nu...
