Would you pay full price—or close to full price—for a game that is nearly a decade old? Activision is banking on Call of Duty fans doing exactly that when the standalone version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered ships later this month. If you want the full experience, you'll have to cough up $40 for the core game, plus another $15 for the accompanying DLC that includes extra maps and other additional content. Activision is catching a fair amount of heat from gamers on this one. Initially, the controversy surrounding the remastered release was Activision's decision to bundle it with the... Read more...
Balancing a checkbook can be a real buzz kill if you often find yourself with too much month at the end of your paycheck. Do you know what else stinks? Auditing the expense of in-game purchases, whether paid for with the time you spend grinding away to avoid doling out real dollars, or the actual hit to your wallet for various microtransactions. This is especially true in For Honor, in which casual players would have to clear their calendars for the next two and a half years in order to unlock all of the game's items. Or you can spend an exorbitant amount to unlock everything. Here's the thing—in... Read more...
The Grand Theft Auto series is known for encouraging in-game theft and murder, but could extortion also be added to the list of crimes?

When the concept of downloadable content for games first hit us, people en masse were enraged at the fact that companies couldn't just sell us a complete game from the get-go. Fast-forward to today, and DLC is a much more accepted, but that doesn't mean the underlying issues no longer exist. For the most part, many gamers today seem fine with purchasing DLC as long as it feels like it provides real value. If a game is a mere 8 hours long and has $40 worth of DLC to extend that, no one is going to be pleased outside of the game's most intense fans. But when happens when DLC for an otherwise multi-platform... Read more...

All good things eventually come to an end, and sadly, Bethesda's VP of marketing Pete Hines confirmed on Twitter that Nuka World will be the last expansion for Fallout 4. However, before the post-apocalyptic amusement park add-on arrives in August, Bethesda has one other piece of DLC up its sleeve, the Vault-Tec Workshop.The Vault-Tec Workshop is scheduled to release on July 26 (two Tuesdays from now) for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Bethesda is getting ready to send Fallout 4 fans to the high seas with Far Harbor, the third and most ambitious DLC pack for the post-apocalyptic title that was honored as Game of the Year at the DICE Awards, but what comes next? Perhaps a trip to a wasteland theme park called Nuka World, which holds all sorts of fun possibilities. Reddit forum member "flashman7870" data mined Fallout 4's game files and posted an interesting screenshot of what he found. There were three entries of note, including "DLCNukaWorld.esm," "DLCworkshop02.exm," and "DLCworkshop03.esm." Bethesda often uses the file extension... Read more...

In a series of tweets, Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has teased some of the game's upcoming content, while giving fans little to go on (as usual). When asked about an update regarding the release of Creation Kit, Pete Hines, Bethesda PR, said, "We're pretty close to divulging details." We're not given a timeframe, but are told that it "Won't be much longer." The response to the DLC question is much the same: "We're not far off." We’re also doing a complete overhaul of Fallout 4 Survival mode. Food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Stay tuned. — BethesdaGameStudios (@BethesdaStudios) February 11,... Read more...
It's been an interesting year for fans of fighting games. With Mortal Kombat X, gaming buddies can finally settle the debate as to who would win in a fight, Jason Voorhees or Predator. And with Street Fighter V, Capcom is introducing a new way to play, one that features a brand new service-based approach with regards to downloadable content (DLC). Straight to the point, you'll never have to buy DLC. Additional content will either be free to download outright, or can be earned simply by playing the game. Balance changes and system adjustments will fall into the former category, while the latter... Read more...
In the last few weeks, Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Unity has become a cautionary tale of how treating a franchise as a perfunctory once-a-year update machine while simultaneously stoking player expectations can catastrophically backfire. Once it realized how unhappy its player base was, Ubisoft snapped into action, stepped up to the plate, and courageously blamed everybody else for its own wretched game. Now that it's clear that this strategy has failed, Ubisoft is instead handing out genuine apologies, a promise to do better in the future, and free DLC. Yannis Mallat, the CEO of Ubisoft Montreal,...
