Ken Levine, creator of BioShock made that tweet, along with others yesterday that suggest the BioShock Infinite is going to get new DLC announced today. He said to “check the internets on Tuesday around 8 AM est”, which is strange because that is tomorrow. He then made sense of it by explaining how far away the event is taking place.

All joking aside, many are looking forward to this, and we may see the continuation of BioShock Infinite that we’ve been waiting for.

The Last of Us: American Dreams, which has proven itself to be a great four-part series so far, actually influenced the lore of the game itself, Neil Druckmann (the game’s director) at SDCC this week.

During an interview with GameInformer, Druckmann told how Ellie’s friend Riley Abel was actually created by the co-writer of the graphic novel, Faith Erin Hicks. Riley never actually appeared in the game, but was mentioned at the end. Originally when the development team was making the game, Ellie was alone when she was bitten, but it was changed to fit with the comic. Read more to see what Druckmann had to say about this in his interview.

Enter the Dominatrix was originally intended to be a standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third, but got scrapped when THQ went bankrupt. Now that Volition is taking care of the series though, it looks like the long-awaited expansion will finally be arriving. The problem that many are having with this news though, is what was told at Comic Con by Steve Jaros, the game’s creative director.

Jaros told fans that while the expansion will get its release, with new content to boot, it will be released 45 days after the initial release of Saints Row IV as paid DLC. People tend to have an issue with DLC being announced before a game is even released because it implies that they could just put it in the game, but are choosing not to because they want more money. In this case, it’s been a bit of a debate between fans though, because it’s not “Day 1 DLC”, a situation in which a publisher releases DLC on the same day as the game it’s for. The fact that it is being released a month and a half later implies that it isn’t done yet, so they’re still working on it.

Either way, I’m glad to see this expansion being released, but I’d have to see the content first to decide if it is worth the money it will cost to buy it. Let’s hope that it was worth the wait.

DuckTales: Remastered was announced a few months ago at PAX East, and now at San Diego Comic-Con Capcom has unveiled more gameplay than was shown in the announcement trailer. Much more. This time, we get nearly a half hour of footage of the Himalayas level, though it has some audio problems that are fixed shortly after they present themselves. The game looks absolutely fantastic, and even has levels play out differently than the original game, as we see rabbits tearing apart the machine that Launchpad McQuack dropped and running off with the pieces.

One of the most noteworthy parts about this is the voice acting. The fact that Capcom got all of the original voice actors on board for this game is wonderful, and it gives us an even better DuckTales experience than the one we had as children on the NES. This game is not simply a graphical update, but a complete remake with new content, and I hope everyone else can agree with me that this is one of the most anticipated Capcom titles announced this year.

Tales fans can sure be a vociferous bunch, even when it comes to getting minor updates of their games. One need only mention the fallout over the PS3 port of Vesperia not coming stateside. For once, they can breathe a sigh of relief, as Namco Bandai has just announced that Tales of Symphonia: Unisonant Pack will be released in the US and Europe early next year as Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. Chronicles will compile HD remasters of the PS2 version of Tales of Symphonia and Dawn of the New World. Given that Nintendo owned the localization to Symphonia, which put the kibosh on the PS2 port getting a localization, one wonders if the former will be re-localized.


Today Sega announced a remake of the 1990 Genesis classic Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse produced in collaboration with Disney Interactive and developed by Sega Studios Australia. The updated rerelease of this platformer will be available worldwide this summer on Playstation Network, XBox Live, and Windows PC.
