I’ve got a score to settle with Rockstar. Or at least one to plan, prepare for and execute perfectly. Synchronise cheap watches bought at the robots, on the count of 3, lads. GTA Online heists are finally, finally, coming to the game. But that won’t be until next year. Which means that you need to be a tad bit more patient. But at least Rockstar will be making it up to players, with a Christmas gift.
So here’s the deal kiddos: I’m about to start diving into spoiler territory. I’m using this intro paragraph however, to warn your asses of what I’m about to do, because that’s what heroes do. So, if you’re still planning on playing either Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel or the Telltale Games developed Tales From The Borderlands, I’d recommend not reading any further. You got that? Great!
Hey! Hey you! Yeah I see you, putting that copy of Sunset Overdrive away. LET ME SEE THOSE HANDS, DON’T MOVE! Ahem. Sunset Overdrive is currently one of my favourite new IPs of this generation, filling in that gap to bounce around city rooftops while dressed like a garish 1980s washed up pop star. By now though, you’ve long finished all the content in the game. Fortunately, there’s some new DLC on the way.
Battlefield 4 had a pretty tight schedule when it came to DLC. The last bit of content was called Final Stand, and from what I understood, it was meant to send Battlefield 4 out with a bang before its cops-and-robbers sibling arrives sometime next year. That doesn’t seem to be the case though. Apparently Dice don’t understand the meaning behind the word “final”.
I’ve yet to jump into Destiny head-on. Because right now, I’m playing a waiting game, as I’ve got a R10 bet with Matty that we’ll see a GOTY edition of the game by September 2015 that packs in all the game DLC. That might be a wise move on my part. Because without that DLC which cost the prettiest of pennies, players are going to be locked out of certain in-game content.
What’s that? You need a challenge in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? You need your skills tested to the max, pushed to the verge of throwing a controller through the TV screen? Well, you might be in luck, you masochist. Borderlands games have always been a step above when it comes to difficulty, throwing pure bullet sponges at players that just won’t die. Expect those enemies to be even spongier, when the Ultimate Vault Hunter pack arrives for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Plenty of big things were a’happenin’ at the Sony PlayStation Experience over the weekend. Naturally, I ignored all of them until I finally got some news on Batman Arkham Knight. When the Dark Knight returns next year, it won’t just be in a vanilla edition of the game, as he’ll be getting some exclusive Scarecrow-themed content on the PS4. Night-light not included.

I’ve spent many a happy hour shooting people on both Pandora and Elpis in the Borderlands universe. I was particularly chuffed with all the core DLC that Borderlands 2 got – well, at least 2 of them. The Torque and Tiny Tina campaigns were well worth the extra money, and almost made me forget how underwhelming those other two were. Pre-Sequel is taking a different approach to their additional content. The first gave players the opportunity to play as a Handsome Jack clone. The second has just been announced, and it’s called The Holodome Onslaught. Basically, it’s a new challenge arena.
2015 is going to be my year. I know I’m supposed to be impartial and unbiased, but testicles to that idea right now. I want Arkham Knight. I want it so bad, that I hope people aren’t watching me when I lick Batman comics in CNA. The development gang at Rocksteady recently took to Reddit for an AMA session, answering numerous questions. And shedding plenty of new light on the game, the world and it’s story. And that sexy new Batsuit. Hmmmmmm.

While folks still refuse to believe that I actually play Call Of Duty for the single-player and not the humiliating multiplayer wherein I have the motor reflex skills of a sloth that has eaten too many Jamaican brownies, they’re more than willing to accept that I also dig the extra modes offered in the game. Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 had the best Zombie mode in my humble opinion,with many an hour spent shooting and cursing at the screen. Advanced Warfare will also have such a mode present, when it lands in January.
Sunset Overdrive is currently one of the best games on the Xbox One, and a pretty great reason to pick up Microsoft's console. It's being kept alive by weekly and monthly challenges, but that can only go so far. DLC is what's going to keep this game alive and kicking for the next few months, and it's up to you to decide what's in and what's out.
Part of what will keep Evolve interesting in the long run is a plan to continue releasing maps to keep players on their toes. New monsters and hunters could also be introduced via DLC as well. However, they will make sure that everyone can always play together, even if they don't fork out for DLC.
