I guess revolution really is coming to Red Faction: Guerrilla. Today THQ announced that the third-person action title will receive three batches of downloadable content. The DLC will be available on both PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

The first of the packs, dubbed “Demons of the Badlands” is slated to arrive August 13. Costing 800 Microsoft Points ($10), “demons of the Badlands” adds, “a destructive single-player mission arc that takes place in a new Mars landscape outside of the game’s expansive world.” Read more… »


It seems that the latest DLC for Burnout Paradise has a special car for you completists out there. Gamers who clear every freeburn challenge, including those from the original game, Cagney update, Bikes pack, and Big Surf Island, will receive a special P12 with a diamond paint job.

In total, that’s 500 challenges to complete.

Y’know, Maryland is one of those overlooked states. It’s smack dab in between Washington D.C., and New York City. It could be one of the most overlooked states in the entire US… with the exception of Kansas of course.

Who would’ve thought that Point Lookout, Maryland was home to swamps, hillbillies, and moonshine? I suppose the apocalypse really changes things, doesn’t it? Don’t really reckon you’d want to vacation there, but its home to some of the best characters and stories Bethesda has ever crafted.



Today Media Molecule announced that on Thursday, July 2, it will release a free “Sacktue of Liberty” costume for LittleBigPlanet to celebrate the U.S.A’s Independence Day. If you’re interested you better act quick. Media Molecule has stated that this costume will only be available for a limited time.

The official description reads, “Featuring the iconic crown and robe from the Statue of Liberty, the costume also includes the famous torch of enlightenment, complete with glowing flames of fabric.” Read more… »

Relic’s Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series is one of the longest-legged franchises in the whole RTS genre. At this point only Starcraft rivals it for online extensive online longevity. Now, Relic hopes its sequel will achieve the same timelessness. Dawn of War II‘s next major update, impressively titled “There is only War,” will be bringing a boatload of balance changes, bug fixes, and eight shiny new multiplayer maps. Most significant of all, however, is the addition of World Builder, a full-service map maker, allowing devoted Space Marines, Tyranids, Eldar and Orks to construct battlefields to slaughter each other on.

The builder will hit beta in early July, with the update making its glorious debut later this summer. Expect much carnage…and only war.



The connection between gamers and pop is pretty clear.  Gamers like pop.  It appears as if the ever elusive EA wishes to capitalize on this strong connection by signing a multimillion dollar deal with Dr. Pepper.



(Editor’s note: Since we have two massive Burnout enthusiasts on the crew, and they both wanted to write their own perspective… just to spice up Gamer Limit…we let them.)

Martin Bigg: It’s been nearly 18 months since Burnout Paradise was first let loose, so it is a testament to Criterion’s dedication to the franchise that they are still continually supporting the game at this point. 2009 has been awashed with a stash of premium content to download, but unfortunately some of these packs have only highlighted Burnout’s turn to the dark side that is EA, with their tendency to stamp substantial prices on subpar content. The pricing, for what has essentially been existing car models resprayed with new liveries and a few gimmicky abilities for the most part, has indeed been questionable, especially when content such as Burnout Bikes was available for free prior to this.

Big Surf Island therefore marks Criterion’s latest endeavour into the increasingly profitable DLC market, and has been by far and away the most sought after release since the entire raft of DLC was first mapped out. But is it worth the price of the admission this time?



This week’s PSN update arrives with a host of new content, including notable releases such as the much anticipated Big Surf Island for Burnout Paradise and VidZone, Sony’s brand new music video application. Compared to the deprivation the European store has previously received, this update continues the recent trend of SCEE actually delivering a worthwhile dose of both quantitative and quality content. My only complaint is that the irresistable Iron Maiden track pack is only available for Rock Band and not Guitar Hero.

A full listing of today’s update can be found after the break.



Following several rumours, it has now been confirmed that downloadable track packs featuring Green Day are indeed imminent for Rock Band. Fans of the band will no doubt be pleased to know that three seperate track packs are to be released, the first of which featuring the songs 21 Guns, Know Your Enemy and East Jesus Nowhere from their latest album release, 21st Century Breakdown.



It has been announced that Paradise City will be opening its gates to Big Surf Island this Thursday on the 11th of June, for a fee of £9.99 ($12.99).

This latest addition to Criterion’s long running series of DLC comprises of the eagerly awaited new island, packaged with 15 additional racing events and 9 new vehicles to play with. Find out if it is worth the entrance fee when Gamer Limit takes a tour around Big Surf Island upon its release.


Media Molecule teased us last week with a brief trailer hinting at Shadow of the Colossus downloadable content for LittleBigPlanet. Developers of the popular PS3 title confirmed today that the new content pack would include costumes and stickers from both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Hit the jump for pictures and the teaser.



This weeks Playstation Store update has been a bumper E3 special, offering a plethora of E3 related game trailers along with a smattering of new playable and downloadable content thrown in for good measure.

Check out this week’s mammoth update in full after the break.
