Alien: Isolation's pre-order bonuses are annoyingly good
by Max Scoville

The pre-order bonuses for Alien: Isolation have been announced, and they're really, really cool... but should we take it at some kind of sign? After all, it was a very similar lust for bonuses that led to the crew of The Nostromo investigating the distress signal coming from LV-426, in the process granting passage to the film's titular nightmarish stowaway.

Video: Ubisoft is now luring consumers into pre-orders with gambling
by Bill Zoeker

Ubisoft has launched a new tactic for netting pre-orders for Assassin's Creed: Unity in the form of a digital slot machine. Pre-order customers gain 5 free spins every Friday, and prizes include everything from in-game content to a trip to Paris. While participants pay no actual money to play, using gambling as a way to attract customers still feels a bit sleazy.
