Batman goes all Iron Man in the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC

DC All Access is showing off what we can expect out of the Batman: Arkham Origins "Cold, Cold Heart" downloadable content, and it looks like DC is taking a page out of Iron Man's playbook. To deal with Mr. Freeze, Batman wil...

A GameStop product page for the Watch Dogs Season Pass describes what the $19.99 purchase will cover, at least in general terms: "a unique single-player campaign featuring a new playable character plus more missions, weapons,...

Fulgore closes out season one of Killer Instinct

When I think "Killer Instinct," I think "Fulgore." How could I not, given that iconic, badass black Super Nintendo cartridge featuring the cyborg front and center? It's nice, then, to finally see him added to the game today a...

Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow photo
Forza Motorsport 5 gets another free track tomorrow
by Jordan Devore

Additional tracks for Forza Motorsport 5 is a very good thing indeed, I think we can all agree. Especially when they're delivered as free DLC. Like the Road America track before it, Turn 10 is giving away another course, southern California's Long Beach Circuit, starting tomorrow.

As per usual with add-on tracks, Long Beach will be playable across all of Forza 5's modes. There's also a Long Beach Booster Pack containing five new vehicles on the way, although this is unsurprisingly only free for Car Pass owners. Those cars are: the 1977 Ford Coyote Gilmore77, the 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale, the 1956 Jaguar D-Type, the 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG Mercedes CLK GTR, and the 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P.

Pocketwatch wraps up Monaco with one final chapter photo
Pocketwatch wraps up Monaco with one final chapter
by Jordan Devore

This is it for Monaco. Pocketwatch Games has already talked about its next project -- a real-time strategy game called Armada specifically built for gamepads -- and now that it has added a fourth, final chapter to the co-op heist game called Monaco: Fin, "it's time to move on."

Recapping the past several years, lead developer Andy Schatz wrote in a blog post that "EVERYTHING has changed" since development began in 2009. "My design philosophy, our lives, Pocketwatch, indie games as a movement, the internet as a whole." He also called Monaco "the culmination of lifelong dreams" for himself and producer/designer Andy Nguyen.

As for Fin, here's Schatz' description: "This campaign is brutally difficult (all eight levels are as hard as Identity) and it concludes the story of the Gentleman and his nefarious crew."

Another map, local multiplayer planned for Goat Simulator photo
Another map, local multiplayer planned for Goat Simulator
by Jordan Devore

Fans have been asking Coffee Stain Studios for Goat Simulator DLC and I can see why: what's there is tremendously funny, goofy stuff but there isn't a ton of it. We're in luck. The studio doesn't want to "charge for new content" so it'll have a free patch for us in mid-May.

Patch 1.1 introduces another playable map that's "roughly the size of the original map," local splitscreen multiplayer, more achievements, and new goats, to name a few of the additions.

Mods have helped extend the life of Goat Simulator but they're not all going to meet expectations set by the core game. Another map from Coffee Stain is exactly what I wanted.

There is a GIANT shark in Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map. And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump.

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation
by Chris Carter

Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their prior milquetoast map packs, and somehow they've even managed to top Michael Meyer's cameo with the goddamn Predator.

Not all of the maps are created equal, but another strong Extinction mission and the Predator gimmick help elevate the package considerably.

Impressions: Sonic Lost World The Legend of Zelda Zone
by Chris Carter

Sonic Lost World may not have met everyone's expectations, but two free pieces of Nintendo-themed DLC sits right with me. We already got a chance to play the 2D Yoshi's Island-themed add-on back in December, but now Link has teamed up with Sonic for a grand 3D adventure.

Just like its predecessor, the "Legend of Zelda Zone" is very brief, but it's a wonderful glimpse into what Sega and Nintendo can accomplish together.
