This can only end well
Feb 26
You might not know this, but murderers love cross-brand synergy. That's why hot on the heels of some John Wick co-marketing, Payday 2 is getting a rash of neon-soaked DLC to celebrate the release of Hotline Miami 2. Remorsel... read

Payday doesn't have much to be thankful for in its Christmas carol


That drill

Crime doesn't have a slow season. You strike when opportunity presents itself. If that means getting your ass out of bed on Christmas morning and proverbially crossing the Delaware River, you do it. But, all that doesn't mea... read

Gage Shotgun Pack

Payday 2 DLC adds more shotguns and monkey masks


Gage Shotgun Pack
Jul 07
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. read

Terrible things. read feature
