This Dead Rising 3 DLC trailer is just too badass

If this trailer were to be believed, Dead Rising 3's new DLC Chaos Rising is pretty darn cool. I mean, look at all the leather, and motorcycles, and angry dudes in jail. That's practically the trifecta of cool stuff. However, Chris "Smash Mouth" Carter says it's not all that great. Maybe he just hates leather, and motorcycles, and dudes in jail.

Review: Dead Rising 3: Chaos Rising
by Chris Carter

Capcom is churning out DLC for Dead Rising 3, and so far, it's struck out. The first DLC had a major problem offering up an uninteresting character and scenario, while the second gave us a better character, but an equally disappointing campaign.

This time around, the third episode focuses on one of the psychopath bosses from the main campaign, in the form of biker king Hunter Thibodeux. While the concept of playing as a boss character is decidedly unique, the third scenario is still just as shallow as its predecessors.

Starbound's progression will see a complete overhaul

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes platform comparison
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is one of the three major new releases in March. We just found out the Xbox One version is in 720p, while the PlayStation 4 version will be in 1080p.

So what does that mean when the different versions are in motion? This, this is what it means. Konami went ahead and made this comparison video, so fight. Fight for your platforms, and make your enemies bleed because your version is probably better than the other version because videogames!

Review: Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel
by Chris Carter

Although I had an amazing time with Dead Rising 3, the first DLC offering left a sour taste in my mouth. It was a generic add-on that encapsulated some of our worst fears when we saw the initial footage of the game, and playable soldier Adam Kane was one of the worst characters the franchise had to offer.

Thankfully, the second time around is a slight improvement on the broken formula, even if it's not quite there yet.

The Toymaker returns in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 photo
The Toymaker returns in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The Toymaker was first introduced in Mirror of Fate, and he returns for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Dracula is looking for the Mirror of Fate, and when the Toymaker is about to present one clue pointing to the mirror he gets floor molested and turned into a big jerky boss fight.

I'm actually really looking forward to Lords of Shadow 2, it's just something about this boss fight that kind of turned me off. I think it's the lack of music. What's up with that? Is Konami worried about getting flagged some weasel claimer?
