Banjo and Kazooie Are Coming to Smash!

It’s happening, folks. Once again, a recent trailer has blown my mind…and the minds of pretty much every other gamer in existence. Banjo and Kazooie are coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate as DLC fighters!

Just Cause 4 Leans into it’s Inherent Silliness With Destruction DLC

Ever since Just Cause 2, the series has been more about seeing how many ridiculous things one can pull off with Rico Rodriguez’s insane arsenal than anything else. There’s always a story involving liberating this state or that country from a cartoonish dicator, but they always take a backseat to goofy grapple tricks and chain…

Did the Residence Answer My Questions?

Since playing Little Nightmares back in October, I have been anxiously awaiting the third and final Secrets of the Maw DLC so that we could finally learn all there is to know (more or less) about the Maw and its bizarre inhabitants.  If you’re curious to read a review about the game, I have already…

It’s Not a Game. It’s a Service.

It’s finally taken hold, hasn’t it? This notion of video games as a service. It was only a few years ago that many of us were mocking the idea. “Treating games as a service? Like that would ever happen!” we scoffed. “Nobody will support that” we jeered. Yet, here we are. After years of getting…

Too Little, Too Late?

In games, and everything else really, making a good first impression is paramount. Succeed, and good things will follow. Fail and you’re suddenly faced with an uphill battle. It used to be that if a game bombed at launch, that was it. Its reputation would be mud, and nothing could change that. That doesn’t necessarily…

A Look Inside Breath of the Wild’s DLC Pack 1

As many of you no doubt know, it was announced some time back that owners of Breath of the Wild could pay a $20 fee for some DLC entitled “Expansion Pass” (which I discussed in a past post).  Aside from some bonuses I assume were initially available for anyone who bought the DLC, several additional…

Let’s Be Fair About: Breath of the Wild DLC

It’s happening.  Nintendo is releasing DLC with one of its games.  Whether or not this will become commonplace is yet to be seen, but it has been officially announced that Breath of the Wild will have the dreaded and reviled…downloadable content.  (Cue clichéd violin-horror music here.)  By now, we’re all probably familiar with this practice…

Street Fighter V and a Different(?) Approach to DLC

Several days back, at the EVO 2015 fighting game tournament, Capcom announced that its newest Street Fighter game, Street Fighter V (SFV), would essentially be released as a “complete” game with free (or mostly free) content becoming available down the road.  So unlike with Street Fighter IV (SFIV) and its “Super” and “Ultra” upgraded versions on disc,…

Good, Not Great

Image by Flickr user: commorancy (cc) There have been more than a few disappointments out this year haven’t there? Game after game released to tremendous hype only to fall short of our collected expectations. It happened with Lightning Returns, it happened with Alien: Isolation, and especially so with Destiny. They are all good games in their…

A Demon In Our Midst

Dlc, if you have dabbled in gaming at all during this generation you know what this is. This is the 40-80 dollars you spend after your initial purchase of a video game. We may hate ourselves for it, but we get excited when it’s announced, froth at the mouth and ready our wallets for it’s…
