A month after Team Fortress 2 turns free-to-play, Valve rolls out a DLC that is quite unexpected — the Dr. Grordbort’s Victory Pack.

This is so unfair! EA will offer exclusive weapons for those gamers who pre-ordered Battlefield 3.

In EA’s recent announcement of Battlefield 3, the shooter game of the year is heating up with its exclusive pre-order bonuses. The DLC offers exclusive guns, like Type 88, for those who pre-order the game. Thos who do not, will not have access to the weapons at all. Hence it is no wonder that 94% of EA’s members dislike the idea of the pre-order bonus.

The whole idea brought in so much controversy, that a small retaliation started in the community. If you are one of those who think that this move is unfair, voice your comments down here and EA might just listen.

Mortal Kombat DLC Gets Kenshi and Scarlet

Test your might one more time, because Mortal Kombat is coming with Kenshi and Scarlet in the game's first DLC.

The Mortal Kombat reboot hasn’t even been released yet, but gamers were already treated with two new characters that are set to be on the downloadable content after title’s launch. Enter the fray, Kenshi and Scarlet!

The sword-wielding warrior – Kenshi – is making another appearance, becoming one of the characters to have ever appeared in almost every single incarnation of Mortal Kombat.

Scarlet on the other hand, has a different story. The seemingly sister of Jade, Kitana and Milena was once a glitch at the original Mortal Kombat arcade game where the aforementioned three sisters came out in blood red costumes. Players thought that it was a hidden character in the game despite having the same moves of their originally chosen fighter. But according to Netherrealm’s Hans Lo, Scarlet is now for real.

First Black Ops DLC Release Date Announced

Written on December 21, 2010 by Kristoff Jones

Call of Duty: Black Ops fans are in for a treat this February 1st as its first downloadable content (DLC) will be available for the Xbox 360 for $15.

It’s been almost a while since Black Ops has been out for play, and having the first DLC around the first quarter of 2011 is certainly something to look out for.

Players using other consoles might need to wait a little while longer before the content is available on their turf thanks to a deal made between Microsoft and Activision. Pffft, typical Microsoft.

Xbox 360 players will have a multiplayer map pack that has five additional levels which includes four regular levels and one zombie mode. Two of the four maps are relatively new content as they dwell on Cold War content: the Berlin Wall and an Ice Hockey Stadium. While the other two will be based on maps from the single player mode, namely the Arctic Circle and Hong Kong.

And yeah, the DLC has Oscar Mike as well.
