Mafia III gets its first DLC nearly six months after launch

Mafia III didn't hit a lot of the right notes for a lot of people, but if you're still into the idea of playing past the slog of a campaign, there's some DLC in the pipeline. The first of three packs is actually available today, and wi...

Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...

Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...

Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968...

Mafia III destroys more rackets than John McEnroe

Further proof positive that I am bad at this job. That headline is an extremely unclickable headline. John McEnroe references in 2016? Like, who's going to understand that? I cater to the four percent of people who understand both crime sy...

Mafia III rhymes with DLC, baby!

Mafia III has a season pass, because of course it does. The price for standalone purchase is $30, while paying $20 more will net you the digital deluxe edition that includes the season pass. If you opt to do each add-on separately, you'll s...

Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk

We know that Mafia III's Lincoln Clay hasn't had it easy. He's a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He's also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah...

Mafia III knows what the word 'family' means

When you think of the mafia, taking care of business comes to mind. You know, empire building by way of putting cement galoshes on guys and dumping them into the river. Do that enough times and you're feared and respected. Mafia III&n...
