You can read up on this week’s delights after the break.

[Join Steve Kelso and Chris Carter, as they both review Fallout 3's Mothership Zeta pack for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Steve Kelso's review was written months ago when the DLC dropped on the 360, and Chris Carter's is brand new. Intro by Steve Kelso.]

Fallout 3′s Capital Wasteland is without a doubt one of the largest areas to explore inside of a video game to date. Many fans are absolutely clueless about half of the known locations of the map, much less the little secrets which can be found in some random nook or cranny.

If you’ve come across the alien crash site, you have done a fair bit of exploring. Of course who would have ever thought we’d visit the ominous mothership from whence it came?  The deafening cries of alien probes await you upon Mothership Zeta.

Part of what makes Fallout 3 such a unique title is the world in which it sits. Washington D.C. is a reality, where the steampunk science fiction is the product of Bethesda Game Studio’s imagination.

Although The Pitt is much smaller in scale than The Capital Wasteland, it does not make it any less enjoyable to explore. Forget the negative hype that surrounded the launch of The Pitt; the patch has been applied, and the review is in.

[Join Christopher Matulich and Chris Carter, as they both review Fallout 3's Operation: Anchorage pack for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Chris M's review was written months ago when the DLC dropped on the 360, and Chris Carter's is brand new. Intro by Christopher Matulich.]

Operation: Anchorage, set during the liberation of Alaska shortly before the nuclear fallout that shapes Fallout 3, has officially been available to the public for over 72 hours. Aside from my hardware problems, I had Operation: Anchorage up and running with a character fresh out of the vault.

I quickly entered Megaton and massacred the town for the measly amount of weapons, ammo and armor to hopefully be able to fend for myself against the Super Mutant Brutes attacking the Outcast’s base. Read more… »

Let’s face it. The ending that Bethesda had originally intended for Fallout 3 was incredibly anticlimactic. You’re left with a decision, and you get a cutscene based upon it and then its over.

Broken Steel makes a valiant attempt at rectify this problem, allowing you to play beyond the original intended ending of the game. Is it worth it? Let’s figure that out. Oh, and by the way:

Developer BioWare previously announced that Dragon Age: Origins will receive two downloadable expansions when the game launches November 3. Today the developer released two new trailers showcasing what exactly is in these DLC packs.

The first DLC pack, dubbed the “Stone Prisoner” expansion, will allow a golem, named Shale, to join your in-game party. Featuring unique abilities and a new storyline, the “Stone Prisoner” tasks gamers with discovering the hidden past of this rocky rumbler.

Well, it looks like Ultimate Alliance 2 is starting to roll out it’s line of downloadable characters! Cletus Cassidy, aka Carnage, is set to be the first add-on character in Activision’s new epic brawler.

Personally, I always found Carnage’s appearances on the relatively cheeky Spider-Man TV Show pretty disturbing. I mean, the guy murders his whole family, and is constantly threatening to kill everyone he meets with some sort of sharp-edged arm weapon: that’s a little heavy in comparison to your typical “Pinky and the Brain” diabolical Spider-Man villain. Either way, you can bet we’ll give you the lowdown on any sort of release date, and feel free to check out our Ultimate Alliance 2 review right here.

PSP Minis also make a triumphant return – who could resist the lure of Yummy Yumm Cooking Jam?

residentevil5alternativeedition vote

Ever since Resident Evil 5‘s “Alternative Edition” was announced, gamers have been debating whether or not the content should be released as DLC. Today Capcom opened a poll allowing gamers to vote on whether the Alternative Edition should arrive in North America via DLC or on a completely new game disc.

Capcom’s Chris Kramer stated “[The physical re-release] makes absolutely perfect sense for the Japanese gaming market, where the uptake of digital content is a bit behind the western markets.”

In what must be the most substantial Store update to date, this week sees the launch of the PSP Go, and with it comes a slew of downloadable content ready for consumption straight out of the box.
