Killer collaboration: Payday 2 is getting Hotline Miami DLC

Overkill Software and Dennaton Games are teaming up for Payday 2 DLC based on Hotline Miami. It's unclear what all is included here beyond a heist -- they can get away with offering the slimmest of details and we'll still be ...

Payday 2 DLC adds more shotguns and monkey masks

Payday 2 has its seventh bit of DLC, the Gage Shotgun Pack. In it you'll find four masks, patterns, materials, melee weapons, and shotguns. Twelve achievements, too.  Call me old school, but I don't feel compelled to drop five bucks on a few new guns, patterns, masks, and melee weapons. Not when the existing ones work just fine. Adding new heists is one thing. This? Not a fan.

Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Yes, it's one of those episodes where we celebrate one game getting it right and not stuffing everything up. Speaking of stuffing, Jim at last unveils the Dragon Dildo ... and does things with it. Terrible things.

Review: PAYDAY 2  photo
Review: PAYDAY 2
by Jim Sterling

Nobody could ever claim PAYDAY: The Heist wasn't a good idea. Tapping into every human's secret desire to be part of a beautifully orchestrated, flamboyantly daring theft of grand proportions was a masterstroke, and while the execution was spotty, the overall result was a ton of fun. 

Overkill is having a second crack of the whip with PAYDAY 2, clutching its clever idea jealously while surrounding it with much more content. A deeper leveling system, greater customization options, and a ton of new heists are all on offer.

The execution is, once again, spotty, but the result is, once again, a ton of fun.

Payday 2 blew away my expectations, stole my heart photo
Payday 2 blew away my expectations, stole my heart
by Steven Hansen

Payday 2 feels like one of the most ambitious sequels in recent memory. I was a fan of Payday: The Heist, which in and of itself is high praise. Normally I can't be bothered to play online multiplayer and I've had first-person shooter fatigue for years, but Payday clicked with me. The focus on carefully orchestrated cooperation combined with the game's sometimes vicious level of challenge against near overwhelming odds is exhilarating. 

We knew Payday 2 was going to be much improved, given that it's receiving a retail release in addition to digital, and we knew that new elements were going to be added, like stealth possibilities. Still, I wasn't prepared for how much has improved. Talking to director David Goldfarb and then playing for myself left me pleasantly surprised and wanting to play more.
