Free Legend of Dungeon expansion adds cats photo
Free Legend of Dungeon expansion adds cats
by Jordan Devore

More cats? More cats. And, hello, the ability to tame wild animals to fight on your behalf? I'm into it.

The dungeon brawler with the funny hats and great lighting, Legend of Dungeon, is getting the free Legend Heroes expansion today on Steam. It adds VR support for the Oculus Rift DK2, full controller support for menus, better dungeon tiles, and more bosses, items, monsters, and music.

Notably, though, eight-plus heroes have become lost in the depths and you'll want to save them not because it's the right thing to do, but because doing so unlocks new playable classes.

Contest: Win a Titan One and a controller of your choice!
by mrandydixon

[Update: Contest over! Winners are Fabio Teixeira, Topken, and TroyFullbuster!]

Destructoid has once again joined forces with our friends at ConsoleTuner to offer another awesome contest for the Dtoid community! This time around, three lucky readers will take home a Titan One cross-compatibility device and a controller of their choice*!

The Titan One lets you mix-and-match controllers with different consoles, meaning you could plug an Xbox One controller into your PlayStation 3, a DualShock 4 controller into your Xbox 360, and so on. (Or any of the supported controllers directly into your PC, too.) If that sounds like your idea of a good time, leave a comment below telling us which controller + console combo is your favorite! Limit one entry per person, and the contest is open to anyone with a U.S. mailing address. You have until this Sunday, March 29 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter.

Good luck! And remember, our Huge Members get automatic entry into all contests (and double entries if you enter one manually), exclusive beta code giveaways for upcoming games, newsletters direct from the staff, ad-free browsing, and more! And most of all, your $3 a month helps directly support the site you love. Try us out!

Our friends at Digerati and Bracket Games will soon be launching their IGF-nominated text adventure Three Fourths Home on Steam, and to celebrate they've given us 15 copies to hand out to lucky Dtoiders!

An "Excellence in Narrative" finalist at the Independent Games Festival, Three Fourths Home follows a family during an intense drive through a thunderstorm toward their (presumably) structurally-sound house. Oh, and it's absolutely gorgeous, too!

If pretty-looking text adventures are your cup of tea, then leave a comment in this thread for a chance to win! Limit one entry per person, and the contest is open to anyone in the world. You have until this Sunday, March 22 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter.

by Jordan Devore

Amazon is giving away 34 Android apps today, and some of them aren't crap. Take a look!

Consider nabbing Kingdom Rush Origins if you're into tower defense, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 if you're curious about the animatronic jump-scare craze. Familiar titles like Cut the Rope and World of Goo are in here too, as is the largely unknown but lovable-as-heck Deep Under the Sky.

Microsoft is cool with pirates upgrading to Windows 10 for free photo
Microsoft is cool with pirates upgrading to Windows 10 for free
by Jordan Devore

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages, which is good to know but not all that inherently interesting. This, on the other hand, sure is: during the operating system's first year, it'll be a free (permanent) upgrade for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 users including those who are running pirated versions of Windows.

"We believe customers over time will realize the value of properly licensing Windows and we will make it easy for them to move to legitimate copies," a Microsoft rep told Eurogamer.

Guess that means we can all play Gigantic together. Dibs on the owl guy.

Geometry Wars 3 is evolving with 40 new stages and Hardcore Mode photo
Geometry Wars 3 is evolving with 40 new stages and Hardcore Mode
by Jordan Devore

This is unexpected. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is rolling out a free update across all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) on March 31, 2015 that's large enough to warrant a name change. Going forward, the game will be known as Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved.

Adventure Mode, the one with boss battles, is adding 40 stages, and the existing score-based gating system for unlocking levels is being tweaked so that it's easier to get through. You'll also be able to choose the new Sweeper drone and Detonator super ability (i.e., more stuff to level up).

Hardcore Mode, according to Lucid Games and Sierra, "lets players tackle 20 dedicated levels without using a drone or super, including individual leaderboards for no-loadout purists to compete for high scores." Terrific excuse to get back into Geometry Wars 3. (Also, what's the catch?)

Grab a free copy of BioShock Infinite on Xbox Live photo
Grab a free copy of BioShock Infinite on Xbox Live
by Jordan Devore

March is already half over (have you filed your taxes yet?), which means more free Xbox games.

With an active Xbox Live Gold membership, you can now download BioShock Infinite for free on Xbox 360. Love it or hate it, there's no denying the game's heavenly opener. Every once in a while I'll get the urge to see the ascension to Columbia again on YouTube. "Halleluiah."

Rayman Legends is the one and only free Xbox One title this month, but it's so good I don't even mind. That and the recently-released Ori and the Blind Forest make for a blissful combination.

Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing photo
Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing
by Jordan Devore

It's great to see free maps in a multiplayer-centric game like Evolve, but -- there just had to be a but -- timed platform exclusivity? Considerably less good. When the maps Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry debut on March 31, they'll only be available for Xbox One. Following that initial release, PC and PlayStation 4 players will be able to download the pair on April 30.

"Mine" is set in a cave system whose hidden pathways should thoroughly confuse untrained hunters (like me!), while "Foundry" is more of an industrial zone containing crates of bohrium that the beast can consume (though doing so will make enough noise to give away its position).

If Turtle Rock Studios can keep a steady flow of new content going, there may still be a decently active player base by the time I dig into Evolve. Speaking of which, I need to check in on Titanfall.

Titanfall turns one year old, gives away all DLC for free photo
Titanfall turns one year old, gives away all DLC for free
by Brett Makedonski

Titanfall celebrates the first anniversary of its launch today. There might not be a grand showcase dedicated to everything that's happened to the game over the year, but EA and Respawn haven't forgotten about it altogether. They're quietly handing out gift bags to anyone who still wants to party.

All of Titanfall's add-ons across all three platforms -- Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC -- have been made free. Users can simply queue up the season pass on their preferred system. It's currently unknown how long this freebie will last, so it's best to pick it up now instead of waiting.

Happy Anniversary Titanfall [Titanfall]

Tactical cyberpunk game Syndicate free on Origin photo

by Jordan Devore

Remember that time Starbreeze and EA brought Syndicate back as a first-person shooter?

Wait, no, forget I ever mentioned it. I'm sorry.

Instead, nab the original Bullfrog Productions-developed Syndicate for free through Origin's On the House. Once the game is in your library, it'll stay there, and this is a good one to have.

[Thanks, Luna Sy]

One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch photo
One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch
by Jordan Devore

For as long of a wait as it's been, I'm still enthusiastic about heists in Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rockstar previously said that coming up with missions in which every player in the crew feels important at all times "turned out to be a lot more difficult than we originally thought [and] took several passes from scratch." Console players will find out if the studio succeeded come Tuesday.

Until then, here's a bunch of new screenshots, some of which show the heist planning stage.

Looks like Unreal Tournament is in capable hands photo
Looks like Unreal Tournament is in capable hands
by Jordan Devore

The new Unreal Tournament is going to look gorgeous once Epic and the community are finished working on it. Last I saw of the project, it had only just become "a game," and now here it is making real good use of Unreal Engine 4. According to Epic, the map shown in this video, Outpost 23, "sets our visual bar for where we would like to see Unreal Tournament continue moving forward."

You can download a pre-alpha build of the game (or simply follow its continued development) over here. It takes a certain type of person to be interested enough to want to do that, and I imagine said person is fully capable of destroying me in UT, so I'm going to pass for the time being.

The wonderful Double Fine Adventure documentary is going free photo
The wonderful Double Fine Adventure documentary is going free
by Jordan Devore

Folks who helped crowdfund Broken Age have gotten an up-close look at how Double Fine operates thanks to episodic videos chronicling development of the adventure game.

With 18 episodes down, 2 Player Productions has produced hours upon hours of compelling footage, and now it's being set free: the documentary series will be uploaded to YouTube piece by piece each Tuesday and Thursday, starting today. The first three episodes are up now.

I'm sure I've written this before, but the documentary was the main reason I backed Broken Age. It's phenomenal, insightful, humanzing, and funny. Whenever an email comes in with a new episode, I want to put down what I'm doing (usually work) and take an extra long "lunch break."
