Nintendo hopes to strike balance with new Smash Bros. 3DS patch

Fighting games constantly strive for the fabled perfect balance that turns the contest into a pure standoff of skill rather than giving one player an edge based on character. Nintendo's taking more steps to inch closer to its...

Final Fantasy XIV's patch 2.28 brings lots of great changes

Musings on the Dota 2 6.81 patch photo
Musings on the Dota 2 6.81 patch
by Patrick Hancock

A new update just hit Dota 2, and it brought with it another slew of balance changes in the form of the 6.81 patch. Buffs and nerfs abound, and the future of the game has changed once again. Many have claimed that the 6.80 version of the game was really damn good, and I would certainly agree. Changes had to be made to certain Heroes though, and Icefrog is not one to keep us waiting for long.

I'm not including every single change here, but I have included the ones I feel are worth talking about. I'm also not talking about the bug fixes specifically, but let it be known that the Dota 2 team at Valve really went all out for fixing so many bugs in this patch, including ones that they just introduced (like the Vengeful Spirit bug)!

And please! Let's discuss this patch in the comments. We're already seeing some interesting tournament picks (Sniper?!) which is exciting!

Day-one patch for inFamous: Second Son adds 19 missions photo
Day-one patch for inFamous: Second Son adds 19 missions
by Jordan Devore

As Chris mentioned in his review of inFamous: Second Son, Sucker Punch is expanding the core game with the Cole's Legacy and Paper Trail story arcs. The first of this content will be playable tomorrow as part of a day-one patch alongside difficulty balancing and technical improvements.

Paper Trail is a free set of 19 missions which are said to extend the game by approximately five hours and tell the "full story behind the [Department of Unified Protection's] occupation of Seattle" both in-game and online. This content was co-developed by alternate-reality game maker 42 Entertainment and also includes "web-based investigations."

As for Cole's Legacy, that's also free -- if you have a Limited Edition copy of Second Son. Sucker Punch says this is spread across four story missions, providing another hour of gameplay.

As much as it can be a pain to have day-one updates prevent you from immediately diving into a game you just cracked open, this will be a welcome sight.
