Capcom Digital Collection Coming In March

Capcom has announced the release date for the  Xbox-exclusive Capcom Digital Collection. We originally learned about the Digital Collection back in December, and luckily you won't have to wait too much longer to play it. The Capcom Digital Collection is coming out on March 27 and will feature eight titles on one disc for just $39.99. The games include:

  •     1942: Joint Strike
  •     Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
  •     Final Fight Double Impact
  •     Flock!
  •     Rocketmen: Axis of Evil (including Rocketmen: It Came From Uranus expansion)
  •     Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  •     Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  •     Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3

Now that we've got a solid release date, are you more hyped to play these classic titles?

Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, came by to tell us all about a new DLC map pack coming to the first-person shooter. The first map, Liberation, is a huge, expansive map that takes place in the heart of New York City right after the Battle of New York in the campaign. The second map, Piazza, is unlike anything you've ever played in CoD before. It's totally outside the CoD campaign, has nothing to do with the story, but it features a beautiful, serene, seaside village that you're going to be fighting an uphill battle in, so get ready.

Check out Liberation and Piazza in the video below.

This first content drop, featuring the Liberation and Piazza maps is out now for Call of Duty Elite members on the Xbox 360. Then, if it follows suit with other MW3 DLC, PlayStation 3 Elite members will get, followed by Xbox 360 non premium members, and then PlayStation 3 non premium members. There's no word when this DLC will be hitting for the PC.

What do you think of Liberation and Piazza? Are you excited to play on these brand new MW3 maps?

Gears of War 3 DLC "Fenix Rising" will include several multiplayer maps. G4 has an exclusive look at "The Slab." Before Gears of War 1 Marcus was incarcerated at Jacinto Maximum Security Prison, affectionately nicknamed The Slab. This prison wasn't a place where criminals were sent to be rehabilitated; this was a place where criminals were sent to be forgotten. In this video, you'll get a bird's eye view of the new map. Cheery, right? The architecture of the prison is just lovely. Those arch ways are definitely inspired by the Romans.

Gears 3 DLC pack Fenix Rising will come with five maps total; Academy, Anvil, Depths, Escalation, and The Slab, and is available on January 17th.

Modern Warfare 3's First DLC Coming To Xbox Live On January 24 -- First Screenshot Of

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 finally seems to have found its footing following a rocky launch, on the technical side, at least. There are still areas that could be improved, and plenty of promised Elite features that have yet to arrive, but the game and its social network are both up and running. That's good. The next focus for co-developers Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, along with Raven Software? DLC.

Elite subscribers in particular have been waiting to hear what Activision's release plan is for the game's downloadable add-ons, since the main feature of the $50 subscription not only nets you all of that content, but also early access to it as well. A morning e-mail sent to Elite's Premium members confirms that the planned DLC "season" will kick off on January 24, on Xbox Live first. Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has tweeted the first screenshot of one the maps, Park. [above]

Gears of War 3 RAAM's Shadow DLC Review Verdict

Gears of War 3 players, let’s go back. Way back. . .all the way back to just after E-day. That’s where you’ll find yourself in RAAM’s Shadow, DLC numero dos for Gears of War 3.

As someone who doesn’t really care about multiplayer enough in general to get jazzed for map packs or new character skins, RAAM’s Shadow is perfect for a guy like me. This DLC is a three-hour chunk of campaign set before the events in the original Gears of War.

You play as Zeta squad made up of a couple old favorites (Lt. Minh Young Kim and Tai, my favorite mysterious shaman and face tattoo enthusiast from Gears 2) and two new fish: Alicia Velera (yay! another female character to help me towards my lady medal in MP!) and Barrick, whom I just refer to as “mutton-chops.”

Gears of War 3 now has its third piece of DLC content, RAAM's Shadow. Not bad for only three months after the launch of the game. RAAM's Shadow might be the most badass of the Gears DLC packs. It's a throwback to Gears 1 and lets players relive the thrill of the kryll, the heartbreak of losing Kim (he had a kid!) and more. Retro is hot right now, anyway. Check out the launch trailer to see what I mean!

RAAM's Shadow will set you back 1200 MS points, but it could help you get 250 more achievement points.
