If you haven’t seen “Tell Your Children [Reefer Madness]“ the movie, go find it – it’s incredibly funny, educational, and it’s the basis for the brand new L.A. Noire DLC, appropriately titled Reefer Madness.

So what’s Cole up to this time? Oh, you know, same old, same old – rotating coke cans, chasing down bad guys, and accusing old women of brutally torturing and murdering their baby grandkids. Thankfully, it’s still a ton of fun.


Alien Zombie Megadeath, a new Killzone 3 map pack, three new PSP minis, a host of deals and bundles and more are now available via the PlayStation Network this week. The full details await you after the break.


Today word got out that Activision will be launching a new subscription based service called Call of Duty Elite in conjunction with the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 this fall. Activision is still trying to determine the right subscription pricing for the service which is said to “provide extra content that isn’t offered on game discs sold in stores, including downloadable map packs.”

Aside from extra content, Elite will also provide gamers with stat tracking tools that analyze their performance and tendencies in game, in hopes of directing the player to guides and tutorials on how to improve. “These can cover things like the best way to employ a certain weapon, pros and cons for their attachments, or how to make the best use of different perks. Video tutorials will also be part of the package.” Read more… »

Remember when I told you about this little game Magicka that is selling like hotcakes? Well, today publisher Paradox Interactive announced that there is an expansion coming to the popular action-RPG. The thing is, rather than tossing players into more dungeons and the like, developer Arrowhead decided to do something out of the norm; put Magicka in the Vietnam War.

That’s right, taking a cue from Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Magicka will allow players to lightning bolt and fireball Charley back to the Stone Age. Why put a fantasy action-RPG in the Vietnam War? Why not!? Paradox asks, “Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if wizards were allowed to roam the jungles of war-torn Vietnam, attempting to bring peace and stability to the region by casting spells on all opponents?” Read more… »

While it may not come as that big of a surprise considering all the delays, it still stings a bit to hear developer DICE finally confirm that the PC versions of Battlefield 1943 and the Onslaught Mode DLC for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 have been axed.

Karl Magnus Troedsson, general Manager of DICE, said the cancellation was “to balance work on the new against the already shipped, prioritizing the amount of energy spent on the known franchises and the time spent on developing something entirely new.”


It’s time for another weekly installment of PS Store updates, with this week’s standout offerings including the anticipated Angry Birds Mini, along with a playable demo for Winter Sports 2011 and some delicious DLC for ModNation Racers, The Sims 3 and a Linkin Park pack for Rock Band 3.

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


Blimp: The Flying Adventures is not a terribly deep or substantial game. It’s a twenty level downloadable Steampunk 2D version of Crazy Taxi with bombs available for the PS3, PSP and iOS devices. If that sounds like your cup of tea hit the jump for the full review.


Until now, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has been cruelly starved of worthwhile DLC for too long. The optimistically priced online co-op Onslaught was completely lacklustre and the recurring influx of “new” VIP map packs was becoming a running joke.

Coincidentally timed with the release of a game that bears the initials of a certain breed of fish, DICE finally served up a tastier DLC dish comprising of four free maps, which did well to accentuate the aforementioned fish’s astronomically priced map packs. This, however, was only the start of DICE’s extensive DLC plans.

Announced in the most fleeting of teaser trailers during this year’s E3, Bad Company 2: Vietnam is DICE’s latest and most substantial DLC offering to date, stealthily creeping into the market after months of uncertainty surrounding the release date. But with such stiff competition in the FPS pond, is there any room left for Vietnam to engage?


Fallout: New Vegas had its fair share of glitches, but overall, it was one of my favorite games of all time. Running around with a .44 Magnum, a prophetic robe, and Danny Trejo is one of my deepest badass fantasies. But I’ve had my romp, and now, I’m just waiting to see what the planned DLC can offer.

The newest contender, Dead Money, set in the doomed wasteland of the Sierra Madre casino, just launched on the Xbox 360. Does it match up to something like The Pitt, one of the quality packs from Fallout 3? Or does it completely fail like Mothership Zeta?


Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is definitely one of my favorite games of the year, but not entirely because it is one of the best. I fell in love with the game before even playing it, and while I did find some reasons to be disappointed in it, I thought it was great. The environment, the story, and the characters were all phenomenal, but the gameplay wasn’t always as fun as it could have been.

The game’s first DLC, Pigsy’s Perfect 10, does something rather remarkable, changing the basic gameplay in such a drastic way as to be almost an entirely new game. Replacing the main game’s melee-centric combat with slow, methodical sniping, the content provides a surprising amount of difficulty — and quite a lot of fun.

Nintendo DLC Update: 12/27/10

Back in the day when I was still wearing braces,  getting in trouble for skate boarding in the school yard and was death afraid of girls (who at the time stood at least a head taller than me) my favourite multiplayer game was…well, I guess it was Goldeneye. That was the first, and unfortunately only, FPS that I was able to whoop everyone and there brother at.

My second favourite multiplayer game back then was…Super Smash Bros. Dammit. Well, a game I really liked was Mario Party 2 and it’s out out this week on Virtual Console. Hit the jump for more info on that and this week’s other releases.
