You can slice the Moon in half in next week's Hyrule Warriors DLC!

In this trailer overviewing the Majora's Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we get to see Young Link don the Fierce Deity's mask and cut the Moon in half. My dark fantasy has finally been realized. There's more excitement abound:...

Dead or Alive 5 will make up for its PC delay with 28 free costumes photo
Dead or Alive 5 will make up for its PC delay with 28 free costumes
by Jordan Devore

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round won't hit its original February 17, 2015 release on PC, as Koei Tecmo has pushed the game to March 30 "[i]n order to provide you with the best possible experience..."

To that end, the company is giving away the Halloween 2013 costume set to everyone who buys Last Round on Steam. That's 28 outfits, many of them predictably scandalous.

Frankly, I've got a feeling the port won't be without its issues, delay or no delay, but let's shelve that thought until launch. At the very least, the PC version of Last Round will not support online multiplayer right away -- that's supposed to arrive "within three months of release."

But then again, mods. They're going to escalate quickly.

Hyrule Warriors ships one million units worldwide, which is damn good for the Wii U

Hyrule Warriors is a really good game, which is why I'm glad it shipped one million units globally. Koei Tecmo has recently announced the numbers, and although yes, that number is shipped, not sold, that's still great for a W...

Toukiden: Kiwami has better abs on PlayStation 4

Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels photo
Ready for Hyrule Warriors' Majora's Mask DLC? If not, grind these levels
by Jordan Devore

I'm continually amazed and frightened by how much mileage I've gotten out of Hyrule Warriors. This game is massive without DLC, and with it, god help us all -- it just keeps going.

After regularly playing since launch in late September, I've managed to clear the first Adventure Mode map, most of the Master Quest map, and around half of the Twilight Princess map. But just when I feel like my progress is coming together, more content drops. Not that I'm complaining.

There's still the Majora's Mask DLC ($7.99 standalone, or bundled with the other DLC packs for $19.99) on February 5. We got our first real look at that content -- Young Link, Tingle, three new costumes, and an Adventure map -- during today's Nintendo Direct. It's gonna be good.

I'm ready to start rocking Tingle, but if your current favorite characters aren't as leveled-up as you'd like them to be, the Twilight Princess map can help. In particular, the "Divisive Plan" missions (locations here) are ideal for grinding experience points. You'll face off against a single warrior, like Darunia or Fi, who will split apart into multiple clones as you deal damage. More clones equals more XP. Just be sure to take advantage of their elemental weakness (e.g., Water beats Fire)!

I'm on track to put more time into Hyrule Warriors than any other videogame in 2014. This is coming from someone who has spent, at most, half an hour with Omega Force's past titles. I may not be a Dynasty Warriors fan -- and,...

Dead or Alive 5 headed to PC but it won't have online at launch
