Rapture City Counsel Approves Expansion
2K Games announced new expansion plans for BioShock 2 today.

The first (of several) will be the Sinclair Solutions Test Pack. It will add 5 new masks, a 3rd upgrade for each weapon, 20 new trials, two new playable characters (Louie McGraff and Oscar Calraca) & the level cap will be raised to 50.

Playstation Store Refresh 02/18/10
Yeah, I don’t have a lot to say here. Not terribly impressed with any of it. Sure, there’s some decent sales & the first episode of The Tester is now available (Meh!) along with some DLC for Assassin’s Creed II & Resident Evil 5, but that’s about it. Hopefully next week brings some better goodies… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Rock Band Restock 02/23-02/25
Next week, MTV Games & the Harmonix crew will be bringing a couple of tracks from the Finnish band H.I.M. For the uninitiated, His Infernal Majesty (H.I.M.) has had most of their success overseas. But, they did have their breakout hit here in the ‘States called Wings of a Butterfly back in 2005. Look for that track pack along with singles from Marilyn Manson & The Police… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Red Dead Redemption Obey’s ‘The Law’

Red Dead Redemption Obey’s ‘The Law’
When one lists the games they are most looking forward to in 2010, it’s easy to forget about Rockstar’s western opus, Red Dead Redemption. The Red Dead Revolver sequel looks like it will be what I had hoped Gun would have been back in 2005. Basically, it’s what the offspring would be if Grand Theft Auto & the Man With No Name trilogy of spaghetti western films were to mate. Here’s the latest trailer for you below… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Are You The Next ‘God Of War’?

Are You The Next ‘God Of War’?
*sigh* Really, the whole reality show thing is okay sometimes, if anything to appease the inner voyeur in all of us. But seriously, it’s becoming the dirge of television. What? Can’t exploit a media property anymore? I know, lets make a reality show!! Bah! Drives me nuts. Anyway, Sony is at it again, this time partnering up with Spike TV & featuring everyone’s favorite pissed off warrior, Kratos. Poised to promo the game, it sounds like it will be a single episode set to air the night before the March 16th launch (so does it really qualify as a reality show or a glorified...

Zero Punctuation: Borderlands

Zero Punctuation: Borderlands
Looks like Yahtzee didn’t really care for Borderlands. While most of his points are valid (like the interface issue), I can’t say I would be as harsh on it as he was. Hopefully I get my review written soon so you can see my thoughts… Bookmark It Hide Sites

Playstation Store Refresh 02/11/10
This week’s Playstation Store update has a lot of awesome sauce in it. First, you’ll find a Burnout Paradise bundle for a really good price as you can get the game & all the DLC for $30. Also, Trine has a 50% price reduction, available for only $10. It’s certainly worth it at that price. As for PSOne Classics, you can’t go wrong with Populous: The Beginning, which is one of the most loved “god-games” of all time. Rock Band see’s Megadeth’s Rust in Peace album hit the music store. Little Big Planet get’s some new Valentine’s Day themed...

Final Fantasy XIII Bundles Up Xbox 360

Final Fantasy XIII Bundles Up Xbox 360
Man, I really need to find a way to have a ‘bundle budget’. You know, a stash of cash that’s dedicated solely to buying the various console bundles that come out as I really want some of them. Case in point is the recently announced (& previously Japan-only) Final Fantasy XIII Xbox 360 Bundle. Sporting a 250GB HD, 2 controllers, a white console, the game & some Avatar downloads, it’s a solid package…for someone who doesn’t already have an Xbox 360. Considering I already have two consoles & several controllers, $400 is a bit much to pay for a $60...

EA Shows Us The Future

EA Shows Us The Future
EA released their 3rd Q Financial Report this afternoon. Typically these are full of a bunch of numbers that most of you won’t really care about. But, once you dig past that, sometimes you’ll find some interesting (& unannounced) information. First up, both APB & the new Medal of Honor title will launch this summer (read July, Aug, or Sept), with the MMO being PC only, but MoH reboot will be on the consoles, PC & the handhelds. The holidays will see Crysis 2 (for both consoles & PC), a new EA Sports Active title, the new Need For Speed game, NBA Jam, EA Sports MMA, a...

Dante’s Inferno Live Chat

Dante’s Inferno Live Chat
With Dante going to Hell tomorrow, there’s a lot of launch festivities planned for what was probably the most uniquely marketed game ever. For those out of the loop, Dante’s Inferno is an Action/Adventure game from EA’s Visceral Games based on part one of Dante Alighieri’s fourteenth-century poem, the Divine Comedy. It follows Dante’s quest to free his beloved from the Underworld. In the process, he’ll have to traverse the nine circles of Hell (Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Heresy, Violence, Fraud & Treason), atoning for his past sins along the way....

Lego Star Wars Gets ‘Cloned’

Lego Star Wars Gets ‘Cloned’
The popular (& obscenely cute) Lego game franchise will be adding a 3rd title in it’s Star Wars series. Dubbed The Clone Wars, this new game will draw from the Cartoon Network series of the same name, boasting a better level editor, squad command & long distance Jedi attacks. You should see all the characters from the animated series making an appearance in the game along with “some fan-favourite characters from the beloved theatrical Star Wars Saga”. While I enjoy the franchise, it’s certainly a better experience for the younger crowd. I wonder why TT Games opted...

Sackboy Is A ‘Luvre’
This week is celebrated as a week of all things love. With heart merchandising infecting every retail store before Santa could get back up the chimney, we’ve been besieged by chocolates, flowers & the color red at every turn. Valentines is a holiday that’s truly designed to make men everywhere feel guilty because they didn’t do enough for their significant other (I’m not jaded, am I?). Anyway, joining in the themed fray is Media Molecule’s user created platformer, Little Big Planet. Bookmark It Hide Sites

Rock Band Restock 02/09-02/11
Megadeth returns to Rock Band this week with Rust in Peace, one of the best metal albums of the 1980’s. Released in 1986, it was big for me personally as at 11 years old, I was just starting to transition away from the Top 40/Adult Contemporary music my Mom listened to (trust me, one can only listen to so much Anne Murrey). Rock & metal were a perfect fit for me, with bands like Quiet Riot, Iron Maiden, Ratt, Van Halen & Aerosmith already on my playlist thanks to buddies, groups like Megadeth, Metallica & Guns & Roses finished off my 80’s Pop habits for good. While I...

Apparently gamers who haven’t been able to upgrade to an HD display are have been having trouble reading the many lines of text in the recently launched Mass Effect 2. There’s even a thread about it in the official forums. Bioware’s response? Well, according to Mass Effect Project Manager Michael Gamble, “it was a byproduct of enhancements to the user interface” & they can’t address it with a patch, but will keep it in mind for their future Mass Effect titles. I wonder what they’ve done differently since this isn’t the first time this issue has...

Playstation Store Refresh 02/04/10
While there isn’t a lot here to be impressed with, Sony does have a few items that may catch your eye. First up, both Puzzle Quest & Madden NFL Arcade have a temporary price drop, from $15 to $10. The February issue of Qore is also available, sporting the demo of God of War III (for subscribers). Tecmo’s instrument-controller-enabled platformer Fret Nice is another one you might want to check out. Both the full game ($15) & the demo launched. Since I don’t have any instrument controllers for my Playstation 3, I’ll have to wait for the Xbox LIVE Arcade version to...

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4

Needlemouse + XBLA/PSN/WW = Sonic 4
When we first got wind of Project Needlemouse, there was a mix of joy & trepidation. Joy at the return of the iconic speedster & trepidation because of the long time struggle Sega has had getting the spiny mammal to be successful since it’s 16 bit days. Today, Sega finally showed it’s hand, & I must say, I think they’ve been dealt full house. One of the biggest complaints have been that they seem to miss re-creating the magic that Sonic had back on the Genesis. So, Sega seems to have finally taken that to heart & is creating Sonic 4. No were-hogs, no RPG elements...
