For a free promotional game, I found "Doritos Crash Course" to be surprisingly entertaining, and it looks like Xbox Live is getting sequel. According to a recent tweet via Xbox's Major Nelson, "Doritos Crash Course 2" will be available for free this week.
With the recent announcement of intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo coming to "Injustice" as the first DLC character, we got to thinking about others who would be a great fit for developer Netherrealm Studios' DC Universe fighting game.
After the jump, we've got a list of ten characters who would be essential picks (and maybe should have been in the game at release), offering Batman, Lex Luthor, and the rest of the "Injustice" heroes and villains some formidable challenges while mining the legacy of the DC Universe.
A summer blockbuster based around giant robots beating the crap out of unearthly kaiju would be a natural fit for a big budget video game tie-in, right? If the Australian rating submission for the XBLA/PSN "Pacific Rim: The Video Game" that VG247 came across is to be believed, then we just might be getting a more modest take on Guillermo del Toro's next big feature.
Want a chance to visit Bethesda's studios and try out some new and upcoming games? Folks in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will be able to do just that as Bethesda has just opened a Play Test Lab at id Software's studios, and volunteers are needed.
"Blood Dragon" in a lot of ways is a perfect way to experience vanilla "Far Cry 3" without getting too invested. For 15 bucks (1200 MS Points), Ubisoft smartly detatches the main game and narrative threads of an island hopping, male power fantasy featuring a douchey 20 something for... a male power fantasy featuring a retro throwback of douchey action star. A mouthy look at some of the best (and worst) of what 80's and 90's action movies had to offer -- it's that mid-afternoon cable movie that you've just woken up to after passing out drunk on the couch, bathed in the dim glow of your TV set. Shirtless and confused, you stumble for the remote to turn it off but something compels you to perervere through your stupor because you just saw the most kickass and ridiculous action sequence of any action movie worth its salt.

In 2010 Telltale Games did the unthinkable, bringing a handful of random characters together to sit down at the same table, and play some poker. "Poker Night at the Inventory" had players face off against Tycho from Penny Arcade, Max from "Sam & Max," the Heavy Weapons Guy from "Team Fortress 2," and Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, in a PC only, Texas Hold 'Em tournament where poker was only half as interesting as the characters. "Poker Night 2" sends players back to The Inventory, and deals them in for another hand against some huge names from the worlds of video games, cartoons, and movies. Read More...
Whelp I guess the Skag's outta tha bag. An early tweet from "Borderlands 2" lead writer, Anthony Burch, has forced Gearbox to prematurely debut the 4th DLC for the boisterous loot 'n' shooter! Read More...
The team at KontrolFreek, makers of the joystick modifying FPS Freeks, have just revealed yet another way to customize your gamepad – KontrolFreek Shields. There's nothing more annoying than having a roommate, sibling or significant other greasing up your PS3 or Xbox 360 controller, and Shields will your give gamepad a unique look so everyone knows to keep their Cheeto covered fingers to themselves.
It has only been a few short weeks since Frodo showed up, but WB Games and Monlith have revealed yet another DLC character coming to "Guardians of Middle-Earth." Elrond, the half-elven lord of Rivendell, will now be lending his blade and abilities to the cause on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
