Watch Street Fighter IV's new fighter Decapre go against vanilla Sagat

Capcom revealed the fifth new fighter for Ultra Street Fighter IV this past week and boy were you all pretty damn pissed off. Decapre is one M. Bison's dolls, and it looks like she's more than just a Cammy clone. To prove th...

PvZ: Garden Warfare is getting substantial new DLC and it's free photo
PvZ: Garden Warfare is getting substantial new DLC and it's free
by Jordan Devore

I've been pleasantly surprised by the way Electronic Arts and PopCap have handled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. First, the game itself is loads of fun -- the foundation is solid. But more than that, they don't have paid microtransactions yet even though they absolutely could have had those ready for day one, and the game's upcoming DLC is not only free, it's worthwhile.

Detailed today ahead of its March 18, 2014 release on Xbox One and Xbox 360, the Garden Variety Pack offers a new map, Chomp Town, and the eight-on-eight Gnome Bomb mode in which both plants and zombies try to destroy the other team's base.

There are also 24 new character ability upgrades -- three for each of the eight primary classes -- providing some additional (and much-needed) variety. Examples listed include a Super Goop attack for the Chomper which cements zombies, an Ultra Tackle for the All-Star, and a Solar Flare Beam for the way-too-happy Sunflower. Also be on the lookout for Pirate Zombies in the existing Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag maps.

Valve shows off its redesigned Steam Controller

Yes, it's still weird-looking but the Steam Controller is coming along. Particularly when compared with its original, intimidating version which you can see side-by-side below. We knew a redesign was in the works, but this it...

Fare warning: The new Crazy Taxi is a free-to-play mobile title

Taking beloved videogame franchises from the late 90's and early 2000's and putting new titles on mobile platforms seems to be all the rage right now. Activision's doing it with Tony Hawk, and now Sega's taking its shot with...

One Piece Unlimited World Red coming to North America

I hope you didn't miss the first footage of One Piece Unlimited World Red earlier this year. This adventure RPG looks fantastic on any platform, but it's somehow even more impressive on the 3DS. I continue to be impressed by...

Luna's Wandering Stars rides physics through space puzzles

Using gravity to manipulate orbit and slingshot to a desired destination is always satisfying, in an "I could have been a NASA scientist" kind of way. With titles like Kerbal Space Program and Gravity Ghost, we've seen the m...

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

Dark Souls II set for April 25, 2014 on PC

There was concern that the PC release of Dark Souls II would arrive long after the game hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 11, 2014. While the PC date isn't as bad as some had feared, it's by no means right around the c...
