Overkill Software is in a good spot with Payday 2. The just-released co-op heist shooter is already profitable -- it was even before launch, if you can believe that -- and game director tells OXM "There's like a year of DLC planned." Which may be offputting to hear right now, especially phrased like that, but continued support for a game people enjoy isn't inherently bad.

Among the studio's plans is the possible introduction of a playable female character. "I'm hoping -- I don't know if we'll get it as our first DLC, because we'd have to redo all the animations so it doesn't look like a dude walking around with a female body," he explained. "But I'd like to do that."

Continuing: "...it's just a question of when on the timeline. Because I want, like I said, I want my daughters to be able to -- no, I'd need to wait a bit for that -- but in theory, it'd be cool for them to mask up. I just think it'd be cool if we had both, that's all. It's definitely on our list. One of the many things that are on our list."

This situation reminds me of Unknown Worlds and Natural Selection 2, which is another studio that's taking the post-release route with its female marine character. Giving players more choice, in my experience, is rarely if ever a bad thing. Even if it takes time to get there.

Payday 2 DLC adds more shotguns and monkey masks

Payday 2 has its seventh bit of DLC, the Gage Shotgun Pack. In it you'll find four masks, patterns, materials, melee weapons, and shotguns. Twelve achievements, too.  Call me old school, but I don't feel compelled to drop five bucks on a few new guns, patterns, masks, and melee weapons. Not when the existing ones work just fine. Adding new heists is one thing. This? Not a fan.more

Video: Wilhelm is like a Terminator on rocket skates in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Back with more impressions from playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I had some first-hand playtime with the cybernetic tough guy, Wilhelm the Enforcer, which I would like to relate to you with my mouth. Wilhelm may not be all he's cracked up to be, yet. But he's got a couple of interesting surprises.more
