To put it mildly, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has been one of the most genuinely exhilarating console racing experiences I have ever had, so the prospect of receiving a further dose of action in the form of DLC was one of salivating proportions.

This is where the Speed and Adrenaline Expansions come in, Evolution Studio’s first attempt at expanding the MotorStorm experience since the launch of Pacific Rift last year. But with so many games now turning to DLC, how do Evolution’s efforts weigh up?

Read on as I dissect both expansion packs with a fine shard of broken glass.

Today MTV Games and Harmonix announced a new program called the Rock Band Network. The RBN allows artists to upload and price their own songs so that gamers can download them and rock out in Rock Band.

The RBN will launch sometime this year on the Xbox 360. User uploaded tracks that are popular will then be ported over to the PS3 and Wii versions of Rock Band.

The way this new program works is, artists will submit their songs to a team of “Harmonix-trained freelance game developers” who will code the song for the gaming audience. Artists will have the choice to price their songs anywhere from $0.50 to $3, putting 30% of sale into their wallet. Read more… »

A somewhat lackluster update this week, but let’s face it – everyone is going to be far too engrossed in the phenominally entertaining Battlefield 1942 to really notice.

Getting Fallout 3 DLC on the PlayStation 3 has been troublesome for Bethesda Softworks. The developer originally planned on releasing the first batch of DLC last month. Apparently something went wrong because now Bethesda is expecting the first batch of DLC for Fallout 3 on the PS3 “by the end of September.”

Producer Ashley Cheng explained the delays . “Keep in mind that not only do we need to test each DLC on PS3, we also need to test each DLC when used in conjunction with each of the other DLC, as well as all of them together, along with the entire original game.” Read more… »

July introduced more goodies for Final Fantasy 4: The After Years, including three new quests: one for Yang, the karate master of the kingdom of Fabul: Palom, the arrogant black magic prodigy of the magedom of Mysidia; and Edge: the young king of the ninja kingdom of Eblan.

Each quest costs 300 Wii Points ($3 USD), and is completely optional to the main game; only the main quest (bought for 800 Wii Points) and the final chapter, which will be released in September for 800 Wii Points, are necessary. These quests are here to supplement the story and allow you to get levels and items for the characters before they inevitably meet up and save the world. Since they’re optional, the real question is “Are the quests fun?”
