Mining! It’s the industry of the future! Especially if said future results in the city of Johannesburg falling down a massive sinkhole thanks to unscrupulous activities which have weakened the ground around that metropolis! But data-mining is also good! And that’s exactly what has happened with Destiny, as details regarding the upcoming House Of Wolves DLC pack have been data-mined out of the latest patch. So uh, spoilers and all that.

There’s a reason why Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a polarising game. Some folks love the more detailed characters. Other people hate the iffy level design. The Zero-G combat is pure fun, provided that you can make it past the various bugs in the game. It’s a game that doesn’t hit all the right notes, but it is a Borderlands game that is important, thanks to the story that fleshes out the events between Borderlands 1 and 2. In the Claptastic Voyage however, the game goes somewhere few vault hunters have had the courage to explore. Prepare to enter the mind of…Claptrap.

You almost had me? You never had me - you never had your DLC... granny shiftin' not double clutchin' like you should. You're lucky that hundred megabyte shot of updates didn't blow the welds on the download! You almost had me? Now, me and the mad scientist got to rip apart the controller... and replace the analogue sticks that you fried. Ask any gamer. Any real gamer. It don't matter if you win by an inch of lag or a dropped connection. Winning's winning.

When it comes to Witcher developers CD Projekt RED, there are two principles that come to mind. Their strong stance against any form of DRM, and their reluctance to charge for post-launch content. The Witcher 2, for example, revealed a ton of content for free following launch, and 16 free DLC pieces have already been revealed for the upcoming conclusion to the trilogy. The two newly announced expansions, however, do not fall under that banner.

I truly despise Nintendo sometimes. During their Nintendo Direct stream last night, they unveiled plans to bankrupt everybody… those evil bastards! Seriously, how can anybody say no to wooly Yoshi? Anyways, they also unveiled new content for their fantastic brawler, Super Smash Bros, and it’s another way of strangling every cent from their most loyal of fans. If you’re ok with this (I know I am), here’s who you can look forward to playing as.

Sunset Overdrive was in many ways the biggest surprise for me last year. I had drooled over the Xbox One exclusive since its announcement, but slowly began worrying about its longevity in the months leading to launch. Those worries were put to rest after actually playing it, and I still maintain it’s the best game you can pick up for Microsoft’s console. And if you haven’t yet, you can save a few bucks now.

Dragon Age: Inquisition was a massive and beautiful game. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I haven't felt drawn towards replaying it with my second character. I'm hoping that the new DLC, Jaws of Hakkon, adds some new fire to the experience and expands upon things. However, it will still be quite a while before I'll be able to play.

The inclusion of Kevin Spacey as a main character in the single player bits of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a genius decision by Activision and undoubtedly helped appeal to the one or two people who hadn’t heard of Call of Duty before.

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.
