As a fighting game enthusiast (who’s not particularly good at fighting games), I’m deliriously excited for NetherRealm’s upcoming sequel, Mortal Kombat X. It’s got all the right ingredients to make it a truly exceptional fighting game. Taking all it learned from the successful Mortal Kombat 9 reboot, NetherRealm has iterated in grand fashion, adding 3 style variants per character, making MK as deep and technical a fighter as MK could possibly be. Yes, I’m excited. I’m also a little annoyed.
UPDATE: The trailer has been released and looks epic. It all started with a leak. Achievements were leaked for a new Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC. Of course, that meant that EA had to confirm it, and give us some details. I'm still waiting for the trailer for this DLC, but here's what we know thus far.
I love me some Batman. No wait, I know this is shocking news to you, but I am a fan. But to be precise, I’m a fan of the Arkham universe. To be even more precise, I’m a fan of Harley Quinn. There’s a lot of love out there for the Joker’s number one gal, and she’s been a consistent part of the Batman Arkham games since day one. And she’ll be getting her chance to shine in the upcoming story DLC for Arkham Knight, which won;t star that meddling B-Man at all.

We know already that Evolve is…close to dead. There’s a small, core group of players that keeps at it, but interest in the 4v1 shooter has dropped to embarrassingly low levels. Could some new DLC help bring players back? Probably not, but it’s happening anyway.
I reviewed Helldivers not so long ago. In fact, the game only released at the beginning of this month. I'm still playing it, which says something considering my backlog, and it's become my go to game when I'm not busy with a review title. Now it's getting DLC, and I'm not convinced.
DLC baby! It’s where the real money is at! Right now, you can purchase a season pass to Lazygamer, that gives you the option to view the website with a green palette instead of the usual blue. Only R14.99! Bargain! And much like a certain other video game, our DLC will also include balls! Because who what other website would have the testicular brazen attitude to hit their loyal readers with such a scheme?
It’s Friday 13th today, which is all about bad luck, superstition, and scary stuff. One of the most famed and popular of the scary things are the shambling undead - yes, I’m talking about zombies, not Gavin trying to get out of bed with his Saturday morning hangover. It’s also Exo Zombies day, according to the chaps at Activision. That makes it a great excuse to give away Havoc DLC codes, enabling the zombie mode, for the latest Call of Duty, Advanced Warfare.
Evolve’s a great big deal of fun when played with the right people – but it’s hard to get a group of like-minded players together all the time. As a result, we’ve seen player numbers drop significantly on the PC version. Console gamers, likewise, have said that it seem that just a core group continues to play the game. What the game needs then, is some DLC to shake things up. Thankfully, all of its maps will be free. And it’s getting two new ones, soon.
Excitement and expectations go hand in hand when it comes to new video games. On the one side of the fence, you just can’t wait for launch day to come so that you can finally play a game that you’ve been keeping an eye ever since it got a glitzy reveal at E3. On the other side of that fence however, so help me Zod that damn game better be worth my emotional and financial investment. Evolve is pretty much that kind of game. Expectations were at a fever-pitch, with plenty of risk attached to the new property. And it looks like that risk has paid off.
There’s a lot to love about Far Cry 4, from it’s beautiful sweeping mountain vistas, to the fact that you can blast a pursuer in a tense cliff-side vehicle chase with a grenade launcher while pumping some Bollywood in the background. On the other hand, there’s a lot to hate about the initial offering of DLC from the game, Escape From Durgesh as it took the more annoying aspects of Far Cry 4 and amplified them into a time trial nightmare that wasn’t worth the season pass it came with. Far Cry 4’s sophomore effort, Valley Of The Yetis has a lot of lost ground to regain. Which it easily does, and then some.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the world of Borderlands and its polarising Pre-Sequel. There’s still some content to get through before the curtain closes on that game and development shifts to the next Borderlands tale. And it looks like one of the final pieces of DLC for the Pre-Sequel, will be focusing on a bridge.
What, you thought that you were going to pay only once for Battlefield Hardline? Ha! I scoff in your general direction! SCOFF TO THE MAX! Much like previous Battlefield games, Hardline will have a premium membership available for consumers who want more out of the multiplayer side of the game. And it’ll cost ya.
