Mod completely sinks Los Santos into the ocean in GTA V

Oh this is just fantastic. A modder by the name of Bushigan has submerged Los Santos into the ocean. The mod was accomplished through a modded PlayStation 3, and as you can see life sort of goes on while Grand Theft Auto V's main city is ravaged by waves. You can make this happen yourself, so long as you have a modded PS3 that is. (Via Kotaku)

Review: Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle photo
Review: Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle
by Chris Carter

Dead Rising 3 was a very welcome surprise. It was not only my favorite launch game between the Xbox One and PS4, but it was a killer co-op experience, and had a lot more personality than I thought it would based on early trailers.

Leave it to DLC to not only take out multiplayer, but jettison some of that personality as well.

Play Company of Heroes 2, Saints Row IV for free on Steam
by Jordan Devore

This weekend on Steam, both Saints Row IV and Company of Heroes 2 will be playable for free. If you like what you find and want to continue after 1:00pm Pacific on Sunday, which is when this promo ends, the titles are on sale to own for $19.99 and $13.59, respectively.

You surely don't need me to tell you these titles are worth the time it takes to download them, so I'll just say in the case of Company of Heroes 2 that all of the game's paid multiplayer commanders are also going to be unlocked during this free weekend.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bold and uncompromising photo
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is bold and uncompromising
by Alessandro Fillari

In 2010, Konami took a chance on the obscure Spanish development studio MercurySteam to create a reboot for one of the most adored and quoted game series ever. While Castlevania: Lords of Shadow went on to become a popular seller and was admired for its storytelling and action, it was a also a polarizing entry among fans of the series.

Now, the developers are back with their next and final title in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series -- and they fully intend on leaving their mark on the franchise. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is daring, shows the clout that the developers earned from their previous outing, and also marks the first time we'll get to play as the infamous Dracula.

Destructoid was invited out to play the first few hours of the game, where we also had some time to chat with game producer Dave Cox. We got to see firsthand what it took to bring this iconic character to life, and how the developers at MercurySteam plan to make the series relevant again.
