REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Carrying your DLC
Posted on Monday, February 16 2009 @ 16:18:12 Eastern

*Before i type this, i'm calling the cards that have a special code that allows you two download special characters,weopons, maps etc. I call DLC cards.

As i continue my mischief mayhem on Xbox Live, I been searching for newer games to buy. Variety of games i choose will depend on how well multiplayer is going to be online (if any) and how well a single player game will evaluate my decision. It's been tougher now buying a game more than ever. Developers, now from what i saw, are producing downloadable contents and putting them on cards. Putting them on cards with a special codes is indeed helpful but what do they actually do?

Many of the cards i use are for new weopons or maps. Fable 2 Allowed me to receive Spartan Armor which i was fascinated in having. Allowing these maps and other special downloads can be found on your Xbox Live Market place (don't know about the PSN), some maybe made just for you if you buy that all so valuable collectors edition. Gears of War 2 is a game that gave gamers many DLC cards when they bought the collecters(limited) edition. The game gave variety of codes such as for new maps, a golden lancher, and an theme for the Dashboard.

So what is the problem with all these DLCs on cards? There is no problem at all. I would love to carry my Hal's Armor, or my golden lancer everywhere i go. It's just the matter of developers using them to help promote gamers to buy the game. Having these DLCs will allow the gamer to feel a bit more powerful. Some DLC cards for advance your levels or instantly unlock a value. The two games the were recently released that did this task was Call of Duty: World at War and Guitar Hero: World Tour. For CoD:WaW you were instantly able to unlock a rifle (forget which one) and for GH:WT you were instantly able to unlock all 84 songs and more continuing to grow from their DLC on the marketplace or a gamer creating their own music.

So developers i appretiate the DLC cards. They're extremely useful to promote your game and have gamers find much value in to them.
