Review – Portal 2: Peer Review

Portal 2: Peer Review

You may remember that a few months back, a little game called ‘Portal 2’ was released. It was no big deal or anything, just a sequel to an enormous cult success of a side-project game, which was only very slightly hyped up before release, so that a handful of people would be aware of it and maybe buy it later on. Of course – in true GLaDOS spirit – I’m lying, and it was one of the most cleverly hyped up games I have ever committed my wallet to. So naturally, when we finished that game, we did a review-thingy of the robotty co-op mode. Now, several months later, we’ve got round to trying out the brand new – and free! – Peer Review DLC, and spent roughly three hours completing the brain-melting puzzles that came with it.

Left 4 Dead Blowout News Hyper Special!

So much Left 4 Dead related shit right now! Firstly, the final part of The Sacrifice comic is out, and you can read it right here. Second, linked to that, The Sacrifice DLC is available today, and if you own either Left 4 Dead or L4D2, you can download it through Steam for free! Thirdly, Left 4 Dead 2 is now available on the Mac, and Valve have promised OSX support for the original L4D before Halloween arrives. And finally, to celebrate all of this, Valve have SLASHED (with a katana) the price of both games in one of their ridiculous sales – pick up either game for about a fiver, or get both for just under 8 quid. Rock on. Read More ››

Alan Wake: The Writer – New DLC Trailer

The next instalment of Alan Wake’s tale is on its way, and there’s a new trailer for it below. After the relatively short (but free for most people who had bought the game) first bit of DLC, The Signal, I’m hoping this new one will be considerably longer and have a bit more to it, especially since it’s gonna cost 560 MS points. It’s out on October 12th, apparantly. Check out our other Alan Wake related ramblings here.

Lair of the Shadowbroker – Mass Effect 2 DLC

The newest bit of DLC for Mass Effect 2 is out soon, subtitled Lair of the Shadowbroker, it looks as though we’re finally gonna discover who or what that slightly more elusive man is. Or woman. Or alien. If my damn PC save files hadn’t corrupted, my Shepherd could even continue her relationship with Liara! Alas, until I get round to replaying through the entire game again, there’ll be no more disturbing cross-spieces lesbianism’s going on…which is a shame. Check out the trailer below.

Review – Alan Wake: The Signal

Alan Wake: The Signal

If you were one of the super smart people like us who bought Alan Wake brand new, you should have found a voucher code thingy inside the box for your game, entitling you to a free download of the first episode of downloadable content for the game when it became available. A few long months later, the aforementioned episode ‘The Signal’ was finally released just the other day, and so I delved right in.

The Signal – Alan Wake’s newest episode is available now!

Alan Wake - The Signal

If you bought and played Alan Wake when it was released earlier this year, then you may by pleased to hear that the first episode of downloadable content has just been made available on Xbox Live! It gets better though, because if you bought the game brand new you are able to download it absolutely free! (or for 560 Microsoft Points if you went for a pre-owned offering of the game instead).

According to descriptions, this first episode entitled ‘The Signal’ continues the story of Alan Wake’s twisted mind right where the main game left off, and allows us to delve even deeper into the utterly insane world being created in his own mind.
