  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor - Lord Of The Hunt DLC

    Monolith Productions' Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor impressed us when it released earlier this year.

  • Blog Post: Tips For Completing The Urn Of Sacrifice Quest Chain In Destiny's The Dark Below

    If you’ve been playing the first Destiny expansion, The Dark Below, this week, you might have noticed that one quest couldn’t be completed yet.

  • Blog Post: The DLC Of 2014

    Add-on content and expansions can take a game you already love and give it longer legs. Just like core games themselves, DLC ranges from great to not-so-great. One thing that is consistent, however, is how difficult it can be to keep track of. The games themselves end up in "best of" lists... More

  • Blog Post: Opinion – Please Accept Our Apologies: DLC Doesn’t Cut It

    A sincere apology can go a long way, and these days publishers and developers have had to say a lot of them to gamers over botched launches. As we're finding out more and more, launch day isn't the end of the game's development. Instead, it's just another step in a title's continuing... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Playing As Link In Mario Kart 8's Zelda DLC

    Mario Kart 8 has been one of Nintendo's best selling Wii U games. The game came out back in May, but it still has a lot of life left in it thanks to some upcoming DLC.

    Alien fans were surprised and intrigued when The Creative Assembly announced its Crew Expendable pre-order DLC.

  • Blog Post: Should You Play Titanfall’s Expedition DLC?

    Titanfall has been out for a couple of months now, but the Respawn level designers haven’t been idle. The new Expedition map pack is the first of three planned DLC expansions for Titanfall.

  • Blog Post: Holiday DLC Round-Up

    The holidays are upon us, and that means all the biggest games of the year just came out or are coming out very soon. It also means, in this new age of post-release content, that the games that already came out earlier this year (or last year) have new holiday-themed DLC. Here's a round-up of what's... More
  • Blog Post: Five Franchises Sony Should Bring Back As Downloadable Games

    As times and tastes change, some franchises fall out of favor – or become too niche to be economically feasible. Thankfully, digital distribution has given new life to games and genres that just wouldn't make sense at a $60 price. With Sony placing a big emphasis on both digital distribution... More
  • Blog Post: The Best DLC To Play On Halloween

    There are plenty of games that revolve around ghosts, goblins, and vampires, but occasionally a game that has nothing to do with horror also gets in on the spooky fun.

  • Blog Post: Do’s And Don’ts Of Post-Release Content

    Years ago, you bought a game and that was that. You inserted the disc or cartridge, installed or booted up the game, and played it on your computer or console – flaws and all. When you completed it, your time with it was over. Today, games aren’t a standalone product. They alter and grow... More
  • Blog Post: Assassin’s Creed III: The Redemption DLC Impressions

    Despite mixed feelings I’ve had about parts one and two of The Tyranny of King Washington, I was looking forward to seeing how the story wraps up.

  • Blog Post: The Good And Bad Of The Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC

    The Mass Effect 3 DLC has both hit and missed , but regardless of quality, the team at BioWare has been supporting Mass Effect 3 with a steady stream of additional content. Citadel, which released earlier this month, is the final piece of story-based DLC for the game. That also means that it's the... More
  • Blog Post: Assassin’s Creed III: The Betrayal DLC Impressions

    The second part of the single-player DLC is out, but a mixed bag of cool powers, poor missions, and stilted story don’t come together well. Ubisoft is rolling out an interesting approach to single-player DLC for Assassin’s Creed III. The three-part Tyranny of King Washington presents an alternate... More
  • Blog Post: Devil May Cry: Vergil's Downfall Impressions

    (Warning: These impressions contain spoilers regarding the ending of Devil May Cry) Featuring tons of upgrades and no lack of one-liners, Dante was a blast to play as in the new Devil May Cry.

  • Blog Post: Assassin’s Creed III: The Infamy DLC Impressions

    Leading up to its launch, I’ve been keen to learn how Ubisoft planned to integrate the alternate history storyline of its new DLC into the main game.
