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.

Paid DLC Coming to 3DS with New Fire Emblem

The one platform that's managed to hold back the ongoing siege of downloadable content in this industry (aside from Rock Band tracks) remains Nintendo's Wii and DS hardware. That will be changing in March with the release of Fire Emblem for the 3DS.

According to Nikkei (who've often been correct in their Nintendo rumor-mongering), Nintendo will offer the first paid-for DLC for the strategy game to the tune of "several hundred yen." No word on how many of Nintendo's titles will receive the DLC treatment, but it certainly opens to the door for other companies to tack content onto their games for a price.

The Wii U will also play nice with DLC, but with a software library yet to be nailed down, WUDLC (pronounced WOO-dilk) news is a little vaguer.

After the messy patching of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, I'm not surprised that the company would look into easing the process of adding onto games in the future.
