Pure Pool – Snooker DLC review


Mr Richard Berry and myself have spent a fair bit of time playing Pure Pool, it’s one of those games that’s perfect for a lazy hour. The chilled out environment, sexy lounge music and a game that is simple enough to play. When I say simple, it is for me, as I’m great at pool and when I talk about the chilled environment, it is, except for the tones of rage coming from Rich’s headset as another cue ball ends up in the bar…

That has all changed thanks to the newly released Snooker DLC, all of a sudden the rage is coming from my headset while Berry thinks he is the next Ronnie O’Sullivan. The first three frames backed this up as he battered me three-nil!

Great for him, not for me. Anyway, I digress. The DLC is exactly what you expect from Ripstone, it looks good and plays really well, abeit a few niggles. While taking shots you can stand back to plan your shot but you can’t move round the table fully, which would make things much easier. Also a top down view would be nice but for the sake of realism I can let that one slide.

It’s also a bit of a shame you can’t set up a league against your friends, which is always good for bragging rights. The DLC does follow on from the game in terms of presentation, the snooker tvake gets its own room  away from the pool tables, complete with house band but it’s the same music from the main game. Rather oddly the cue ball seems to have a pink tint to it, possibly because of the lighting, it’s a bit off-putting but not a major problem. We also noticed that a few times the game suggested that one » Continue Reading.

Dying Light : The Following details and trailer revealed


After a successful showing at Gamescom 2015, Techland has released the reveal trailer for Dying Light: The Following – a story-based expansion set in a massive new area that’s as big as the original maps from Dying Light combined. Dying Light: The Following will see Kyle Crane travel to a hazardous outback ruled by mysterious and fanatical cultists whose beliefs have unnerving connections with the zombie outbreak.

To get close to the cult and unravel their secrets, players will need to earn the trust of the locals. Through various missions and tasks, players will be able to choose their own path for infiltrating the inner circles of the cultists. In order to succeed in this harsh countryside, players will also gain access to fully customizable and upgradable dirt buggies. With its own unique skill tree, players will be able to traverse the vast expanse of the Harran countryside in what is their deadliest weapon yet.

While a release date is still to be determined, Techland has confirmed that Dying Light: The Following will be priced at $14.99(UK and EURO pricing TBC but we suspect it will be between 12 – 15 €/£), while all Season Pass holders will receive the expansion completely free.

Neverwinter: Strongholds trailer


Neverwinter: Strongholds – the seventh expansion for the action MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast is due for release.

Strongholds introduces the largest playable map released for Neverwinter and focuses on players banding together to take back a stronghold from the wild. The initial release will focus on player-versus-environment gameplay in order to allow guilds the opportunity to build their strongholds before taking the fight to other players when large scale player-versus-player content launches.

Reminiscent of early Dungeons & Dragons gameplay, Neverwinter: Strongholds empowers guilds to reclaim a keep and its surrounding wilderness areas from monsters. As the lands are cleared, guilds will build defenses both in and around their strongholds using structures like archer towers to fend off attackers, while building siege structures to increase their ability to wage war against enemy guilds. Once the keep has been secured, guilds will work to solidify their foothold along the ranges of the Sword Coast.

Neverwinter : Strongholds is due for PC launch on August 11th with an Xbox One release to follow shortly thereafter.


This week’s The Witcher 3 DLC gets animated


You can expect some new finishing moves in this week’s DLC for The Witcher 3.

Coming later this week: "New Finisher Animations" the 15th FREE DLC. One more to go. What could it be? #TheWitcher

— The Witcher (@witchergame) July 21, 2015

It seems there are a few folk that are unhappy by this week’s offering – complaining about free things? – it confuses me too! CD Projekt RED are already teasing that next week’s DLC, and the last piece of content in their planned free DLC, will see them go out on a high!

A game of Cat and Wolf – brand new The Witcher 3 DLC


This week’s free DLC offering for The Witcher 3 is a new quest called “Where the Cat and Wolf play”. We all know who the ‘wolf’ is, but who might be the cat?

In previous weeks we have seen CD Projekt RED offer two new pieces of content, so is this week’s single quest larger than those before it? Keep an eye on the Xbox Store and download it to find out!

Dying Light DLC Competition extended


With all the negative press surrounding Bungie/Activisions Destiny & Red Bull exclusivity deal, many took to utilising their suffering at the hands of the community at large to promote their own game.


Most attempts fell flat, Planetside 2 in particular; given their own troubles, yet one developer has managed to find the balance that keeps it firmly in the tongue in cheek satire department. Techland’s #DrinkforDLC twitter campaign went down so well with gamers when they opened the campaign on Wednesday, that they have now decided to take a poke at another community gripe, as it appears they are now ripping on Sony’s recent decision to Crowd-fund Shenmue 3, even though it appears they intended to finance its development.


The #DrinkforDLC campaign now has added stretch goals for further free content, and they have also thrown a docket code in for good measure.

Project CARS reveals DLC plans


Slightly Mad Studios have released a rather nifty Infographic showing plans for all of their DLC. The game has been designed to last and the free updates that improve and expand upon the original core game, free cars and vehicle liveries will be delivered at no extra charge, and additional content made available without the usual obligation to purchase a long-term season pass.

Since it launched, Project CARS players have been received the $3.4m Lykan Hypersport to their garage, a free set of ten beautiful community-created liveries, and the release of Update 1.3 that addressed key issues and expanded functionality within the game.

They have also announced the Racing Icons Car pack with an awesome trailer below.

This is the first game in a while that hasn’t used a Season Pass, it’s a refreshing an welcome change.
