More than just a pizza cutter
Sep 21
// Joe Parlock
As we found out last week at the Tokyo Game Show, Bloodborne is getting an expansion titled The Old Hunters. The trailer showed a lot of loud weapons and things dying horribly, but that’s just par fo...

Splatoon's Hammerhead Bridge drops tonight

More free content updates
Sep 17
// Jordan Devore
The Splatoon community has outpaced me. I can hold my own on the original maps, but the last couple? Not a chance. Here is another, Hammerhead Bridge, to add to that list. It joins the rotation tonight at 7:00pm Pacific.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate is getting Jack the Ripper DLC

It's part of the season pass, too
Sep 15
// Brett Makedonski
Assassin's Creed Syndicate's set in Victorian London, and that seems like a great opportunity to get one of England's greatest villains in a video game. Ubisoft's carpe diem-ing. At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press briefing, a Ja...

Time to go back to Yharnam, Hunters. Sony just announced the first expansion for Bloodborne at its Tokyo Game Show press conference. Hope more dying is cool with you. On November 24, 2015, the add-on titled The Old Hunte...

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth's pre-order discount is perfect

The price point of the beast
Sep 14
// Nic Rowen
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is now available for pre-order on Steam with a hefty 40% discount that brings the price down to an entirely appropriate $6.66. Normally I don't advise pre-ordering anything, but given how much...

It's art versus science in the next Splatfest

New weapon drop tonight
Sep 11
// Jordan Devore
Of all the Splatfests to miss, it had to be the Transformers one. Damn. I would've loved to get an Autobot shirt even if it meant losing to Decepticon apologists. The topic of the next Splatfest isn't as noteworthy, but I'm a...

The Japanese version of Destiny's Taken King trailer is way better

He just wants us to play this with him?
Sep 10
// Brett Makedonski
The live-action spot for Destiny's The Taken King is okay, but Japan does it better. Just watch this masterpiece. There's overwhelming enthusiasm (borderline verbal assault) happening in a laundromat. There's yelling in...

Everyone plays it cool in Destiny's Taken King live-action spot

Until the big dude shows up
Sep 10
// Brett Makedonski
Equipped with a gun, an aloof attitude, and some one-liners, this Guardian dares to wander into the lair of Oryx, The Taken King. This murderous bastard holds a bit of a grudge because you killed his son. It's an understanda...

Turtle Rock gives the lamest PR answer about Evolve's pre-order DLC

'We understand [it] was confusing'
Sep 08
// Brett Makedonski
Evolve's pre-order campaign was, without hyperbole, a shitshow. Jordan weighed in when the game was first announced, and opined that it was way too early to pre-order the game. By the time it released, there was more than $60...

The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone special edition comes with real Gwent cards

'You can play it after/during the story'
Sep 08
// Chris Carter
The Witcher 3 has had a pretty phenomenal launch. It sold gangbusters, and it did so without pinching pennies and splitting up pre-order DLC like many other sleazy publishers. But now, the time has almost come for its Season...

When Edmund McMillen brought word of the new Greed Mode in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, most of the shouts in the comments were, "Looks great, when can we play it?" Soon enough. The features for the DLC are detailed over...

LittleBigPlanet gets Metal Gear Solid V DLC, fat Ocelot is great

Cute enough to look at once, never buy
Sep 01
// Steven Hansen
Remember LittleBigPlanet? Sony had a hit on its hands, and then it didn't, between a lackluster Vita game, a weak kart racer, and a third entry abandoned by the original creator for newer, more interesting ideas (Tearaway!)....

Dragon Age: Inquisition's DLC epilogue is called Trespasser

Dragon Age: Inquisition isn't even a year old yet, but for some reason it feels like it's been forever since it came out. I played it, had a gay old time with my slender elven Knight-Enchanter, finished the story, then settl...

Over the past three nights I've watched my lovely boyfriend and our hunky Australian roommate stream Until Dawn and after finishing the game we decided to play the pre-order DLC chapter "The Road Not Taken" only we could...

More structure, risk/reward
The Binding of Isaac is one of the kings of procedural generation, but Greed Mode in the upcoming DLC Afterbirth is set to give it a little more structure. Instead of a random layout, each floor has the same plan, with a stor...

Witcher 3 dev wants free DLC to be an industry standard

But it won't
Aug 20
// Brett Makedonski
CD Projekt Red released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in May, but it didn't stop offering content there. Over the course of three months, the developer continually put out free add-ons -- 16 in all. That's a trend that it'd l...
