Aliens Colonial Marines

Sega held an event during New York Comic-Con where gamers could see Aliens: Colonial Marines in action. The demo wasn't playable, but based on what we saw, Sega and Gearbox are working on a truly great Alien experience. Adam "The Riveter" Rosenberg does have a few concerns though.

Here's a piece of his Aliens: Colonial Marines preview.

I should have left the preview event raring to see more Aliens: Colonial Marines, but I didn't. I'm worried. There's a talented team at Gearbox Software, and it's clear that they're passionate about delivering a fun, canon-extending game within the Alien universe. That said, they have four months to polish off a game that looks great but feels woefully unfinished. Can it be done? I'll be rooting for them every step of the way, but I've yet to be convinced.

Skyrim

Fans are hoping for some killer Skyrim DLC after the so-so "House Armor" release Hearthfire, and newly discovered code in the PC game's latest update hints at just that, in Dragonborn (via OXM). The rumored DLC pack adds a number of new elements to the game, based on the update files, most notably a new feature that allows players to use dragons as mounts. YES.

There are also indications in the update files that the upcoming quest content returns to the land of Morrowind, last seen in The Elder Scrolls 3. There are apparently quest markers for familiar locations from the distant land, including Solstheim, Telvanni, Castle Karstaag, Raven Rock, and Miraak Temple. It also appears that some new armor types are being added to the game: Bonemold, Chitin, Nordin, and Stalhrim.

It's all unconfirmed rumor until Bethesda goes on record with confirmation, but seeing as this info all comes from the latest PC game update, it's probably okay to get your hopes up. At least a little bit.

Gearbox and 2K have released this badass Borderlands 2 trailer for the DLC character, the Mechromancer. Gaige the Mechromancer is newest resident of Pandora. Don't be fooled by her adorable looks, she's packing a serious attitude, and a seriously lethal robot bestie named Deathtrap.

The Mechromancer is available for download right now. If you pre-ordered Borderlands 2, you'll be able to add Gaige to your team for free.


EA has released a trailer for SimCity  featuring the game's more destructive features. Playing god and creating your own city is great, but sometimes what you really want to do is tear it all down. I guess some gamers just want to see the wold burn.

Disasters include tornadoes, alien invasions, earthquakes and more. I'm still hoping there is a Godzilla vs. Gamera vs. Mothra dance battle to destroy my city!

SimCity will be released for the PC on February 28, 2013.








All Call of Duty Elite services for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be free when the game launches in November, Activision has announced. Call of Duty Elite currently offers extra services and features for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, like Player HQ, Clan HQ, and Call of Duty Elite TV, as well as guaranteed early access to downloadable map packs for a subscription fee.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Elite Integration Trailer »


"What we have realized is that several of the Call of Duty Elite services which are currently only available to our premium members for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are things that would further unite, engage and delight our player community. So we are going to make them free for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2," said Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg.

Everyone loves free, but we're kind of surprised by the move considering that Call of Duty elite sold one million premium membership in its first week when the service debuted. To make up for the difference this time around, Activision has also announced that they'll be selling four DLC Map Pack for Black Ops 2 as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Season Pass.

The CoD: Black Ops 2 Season Pass will be available for $50 and come to the Xbox 360 first. The maps included will bring new multiplayer and zombie content to players, and each pack will be available individually for $15 for anyone who wants them. In total, those who pick up the Season Pass will save $10.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launches on November 13, 2012.





Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Elite Integration Trailer »


Call of Duty Elite is back in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and a newly released trailer takes a look at how it all fits together. A lot of the core features from Modern Warfare 3's v1.0 have been expanded for Elite's second year, including the addition of a section for Zombies stats and the ability to easily copy someone else's Pick 10 class build into your own profile.

Other features are returning as well. Clans and clan-based challenges/contests are back, with players permitted to continue sticking with their group from Modern Warfare 3. Elite TV returns as well in some form, though there's no mention of what sort of programming might be planned. 

The trailer focuses entirely on Call of Duty Elite's free features, with no mention at all of a subscription package or DLC plans. There are rumors coming out of the U.K. of a £34.99 season pass amounting to four DLC drops that will be priced at £14.99 individually (via MP1st), but nothing's been confirmed by Acitivision on that front just yet.

The upcoming Transformers MMO, Transformers Universe, is looking very slick in its latest trailer. The free-to-play, browser-based game is the work of Runescape dev Jagex, though nearly everything we know of the game's multi-faction play and focus on customization has so far been promised rather than shown.

The new trailer is a step in the right direction, offering an extended look at various robot forms and some actual, action-focused gameplay. It's all looking surprisingly slick for a browser-exclusive game. Jagex could have another hit on its hands if Transformers Universe can really deliver on the promise of fully customizable robots-in-disguise. Is there a fan out there who hasn't dreamed of piecing together an Autobot or Decepticon from scratch?




Metro Last Light

When Metro: Last Light arrives in early 2013, it won't feature any multiplayer modes. THQ and 4A Games had hinted at the inclusion of an online component, but a new post on the game's official website confirms that such plans have been scrapped.

"Throughout the development of Metro: Last Light a small, dedicated team had been working on a number of multiplayer prototypes," the post reads. "After E3, we decided to fold this multiplayer team back into the main group and focus 100% of the studio’s resources on the single player campaign. As a result, Metro: Last Light will not ship with a multiplayer component."

It's possible that Last Light will one day be updated to include a multiplayer mode, but for now, 4A is "100% focused on the single player campaign and not thinking beyond that." Were any of you looking forward to this multiplayer mode, or is story all you care about in a Metro game, as the post suggests?

Sleeping Dogs

The first story-based DLC for United Front Games' excellent Sleeping Dogs is confirmed to be arriving on October 30, 2012. The "Nightmare in Northpoint" pack adds some Halloween-themed supernatural kung fu flavor to the open world adventure, as a New York Comic Con trailer revealed.

According to United Front, the DLC pack is similar in scope to Red Dead Redemption's "Undead Nightmare" pack, a game expansion which added roughly six hours of story and a Wild West filled with zombies to Rockstar's release. Footage from the NYCC panel has yet to be officially posted online, but you can head over to Kotaku to check out some spycam video.




Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett And Her Pirate’s Booty is the next DLC coming to the successful first-person shooter Borderlands 2. In this gameplay video, you'll meet Shade, your new  BFF, and get to check out a few of the new areas in Oasis that await you in the expansion. While out on the adventure you'll even meet Captain Scarlett for the first time too.

Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett And Her Pirate‚Äôs Booty Gameplay Preview Video »


Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett And Her Pirate’s Booty has a pirate theme and adds new enemies to the game, as well as a skiff vehicle.

"You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."

Captain Scarlett is set to sail on October 16, 2012.




When it comes to unlocking achievements in Dishonored, there is really no right or wrong way to go about it. Experimentation and creative thinking define the Dishonored gameplay experience, and the same goes for snagging those precious cheevos. Outside of the achievements that you’ll unlock simply by progressing through the story, and pulling off standard actions like “Assassinate 10 unaware enemies,” there are some that require certain powers and even certain environments to pull off.

So without further ado, here are some tips to help you pick up these rewarding accolades as you journey across Dunwall on the hunt for your revenge.

Dishonored Achievement Tips -- Corvo, Cheevos, and You...vo

1. King of the World (Reach the top of Kaldwin's Bridge): This is a location based achievement that you get for climbing to the top of drawbridge portion of Kaldwin’s Bridge. There’s no real trick to this one (other than just realizing it’s possible), and there’s only one way up, so just keep looking up and blinking between beams, climbing a chain or two as you find them, and eventually you’ll pop out on top of the bridge, and be able to cross it without any interference from any pesky guards patrolling below.

League Of Legends Is The Most Played Video Game In The World

League of Legends is the most played video game in the world in terms of hours played per month according to Riot Games' most recent infographic. The incredibly successful multiplayer online battle arena has 70 million registered users and every month over a billion hours are logged by players.

The infographic has tons of other interesting stats as well, like monthly and daily active player amounts, as well as a breakdown of who's playing the game (over 90% over the playerbase is male, where my girls at?), an in-game kill distribution, and even a stat showing how many times Teemo dies a day. The poor guy seems to be everyone's favorite target.
