Matt Looks into thIs weeks DLC news from BF4
DICE have finally announced that they are releasing their second and third DLC packages for PC, Xbox360 and Playstation users.
DICE have received a lot of pressure from the community for holding off on releasing Second Assault for PC and Playstation, with some asking if the wait is due to the problems with the game and the focus the developer has put into updates to attempt to fix issues. After the release of Second Assault on Xbox the game had a lot of work put into it to improve the overall experience after poor post launch stability and multiple gameplay issues.
The third DLC package, Naval Strike, will be available sometime in late March for all platforms. Initially only available to Premium members, the pack will include new weapons, new gadgets and a new multiplayer game mode. The new game mode, which DICE are calling Carrier Assault, is a revamped and modernised (instead of futuristic) Titan mode, a fan favourite from Battlefield 2142.
In this expansion, you’ll experience intense water-based combat as the Chinese armada takes the fight to the sea. You’ll have access to new weapons, gadgets, and amphibious vehicles, and four all-new maps – Lost Island, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker, and Operation Mortar. Offical Battlefield Blog
Things might not be going according to plan for DICE; after almost three months for the content to go multi-platform, only to get a double up only a month apart.
Putting all this aside, I’m genuinely excited for Titan mode. Attacking objectives to weaken a central target followed by boarding and destroying an enemy aircraft carrier: Battlefield bliss. Lets hope they can pull this off.
More information will be available from DICE as we get closer to the release date for Naval Strike.
Curve Digital are going Stealthy onto the PS4 (Not that stealthy as this is a press release but you get the picture).
Episode 1: Nightfall is included with Onslaught, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Onslaught comes to Xbox LIVE on 28th January, with other platforms to follow. http://www.callofduty.com/ghosts/dlc/dlc1-onslaught

Second Season of the Award-Winning Series Officially Unveiled;
Two big pieces of The Walking Dead News, The first is the reveal of Season 2 starring everyone's favourite little survivor. The second is the announcement of a Game of the Year edition for Season 1.

“This is a love letter to the fans, but it’s also the beginning of a story that will give gamers a new perspective on the BioShock universe,” said Ken Levine, creative director of Irrational Games. “With Burial at Sea, we built a Rapture not from BioShock and BioShock Infinite scraps and pieces, but with environments almost entirely crafted from scratch.”
To be honest the title says it all. One of this generations best titles will be releasing its DLC starting on the 12th of November (13th for PS3 Europe). The question will be can the finest of the generation have the pull to keep away the next gen? We will soon get the chance to see and from Ken Levine's quote above it seems they are aiming for the stars with their underwater escapade.
The new DLC from Volition is out tomorrow. Originally destined as DLC for Saints Row III, but with such a compelling central idea that Volition turned it into a fully fledged game, 'Enter the Dominatrix' is finally here to play as extra content for Saints Row IV.
With boundless self-referential humour squashed into a couple of hours of content, expect to get more of the same batshit-crazy fun you have already seen in the main game. This is not just a skin pack, or extra weapon download package (although there are some new fun weapons and outfits to be had as you play), but actually extra story content which adds to the main game without ruining any of the existing canon. You can actually play even before finishing the main story, however you do have to reach a certain level to be able to access the missions and side quests.
The story presents you with the Saints being interviewed by a reporter on their spaceship about the DLC pack. That's right, in the usual smash down of the fourth wall, the Saints discuss the history of the famous DLC-that-became-a-game in the actual DLC itself, with each character commenting on their roles within. The missions are presented as flashbacks, which you play through with tongue-in-cheek comments from all the crew narrated over your gameplay.
The missions are a pure joy, as ever, with the emphasis being placed on unadulterated fun, rather than challenging gameplay. There is plenty of fan service being pushed out too, with many references to geek-genre entertainment, although, as the name suggests, the Wachowski bros do get hit with the parody paddle on plenty of occasions. One particular protagonist, in sunglasses and long leather jacket, features, making complaints about the editing process of the game which left out many of his favourite lines. This is much like the minor character from the original Matrix movies who appeared with a more important role in the disappointing game tie-in.
There are plenty more gaming-related jokes too. At the beginning your character pointedly ignores a request to go through the laborious tutorial process as, quite rightly, the player should know all this by now (much like the beginning of Blood Dragon). There are some pretty funny scathing comments from the Saints about having to do the usual fetch quests and escort missions, and pixelated fast forwarding of some of Kenzie's tech related exposition, with a loud, "BORING!" from the president. The final level reaches new heights of (self-confessed) craziness and the primitive cut scene footage is another homage to the cutting room floor style of the DLC. The scene with The Saints travelling out of Paul's head made me laugh out loud.
If you are feeling jaded after putting many hours into GTAV, Enter the Dominatrix is a very welcome tonic; it certainly put a smile on my face. It is no coincidence that Volition are releasing this DLC now, their timing is pretty good. It certainly made me want to jump back into Steelport for a bit of gimp bashing, so to speak. If you've played the main game already, or are still missing wielding your big purple dildo bat, I can throughly recommend downloading this. You might be cautious about spending £5.99 for two hours play, but this gets you a package (ahem) of high density fun and genuinely good humour. Whip-crackingly good.

This video is being released as the 90's DLC for F1 2013 hits the XBox Live Market place and Playstation store this week (look out on the day your store updates along with the pricing information).
This is a very early view and we will be creating individual reviews for all of the Zen Pinball tables over the coming weeks and beyond. However today the Balance of the Force pack dropped and I have spent some time on each table.
Just for transparency all the scores are form my first full game on the table and I played on the Vita (My platform of choice for Pinball) with the view 4 option selected.
Overall for £7.99 I can highly recommend the Balance of the force pack, the three tables have the usual polish and will offer a great challenge. Look out for the full reviews coming soon
Zen Studio's are returning to the Marvel universe in December with a dose from the Doctor (Strange that is)
The Saints world is growing with the announcement of Enter the Dominatrix coming to systems on the 23rd of October from the screens and news it looks just as OTT as the rest of the game and lets hope that's true.
For our review of the base game you can click this link and we will be covering the dlc when it drops.
A special downloadable character (DLC) pack will be available for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes at launch. The Asgard DLC pack will include eight playable characters, all of whom are also featured in the film.
Needless to say there are spoilers below but its a great introduction to the upcoming DLC for Bioshock Infinite.
