Out Today for Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions, the hilarious shooter Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare heads to the Wild West in Zomboss Down, the brand-new free* downloadable game pack. The new pack will feature even weirder shooter fun with the new Cactus Canyon Gardens and Graveyards Map, eight new playable characters, over 200 wild customization items, an increased Level cap from 20 to 30 for each character, and all-new challenges to accomplish.
In Zomboss Down the plants have blasted down Dr. Zomboss’s blimp and unleashed packs of zombies, who are now roaming the desert and battling their way through the wreckage to reach the local golf course.

Players will also enjoy increased character levels and eight fun new characters like the Archeologist Zombie, the Wrestling Star Zombie, the Law Pea and the Sun Pharaoh. In addition, players will discover weapon upgrades and skins for new characters, new accessories, tattoos and facial hair, and even more.

A leaked image of a GameStop poster has at the very least given us the names of the new maps in the first map pack due to drop for Call of Duty: Ghosts on January 28th this year (First on Xbox LIVE). Fog, BayView, Containment and Ignition are the multiplayer maps with an Extinction map titled Episode 1: NightFall.
This is also likely to be the trend now for the foreseeable Call of Duty: Ghosts future – four multiplayer maps and one extinction map. Extinction is not quite the ‘hit’ as was Zombies for Treyarch, but it’s something different all the same. Spec Ops Survival could have been great on Ghosts, but it was never meant to be…
We are hoping to review this map pack in due course from Activision – look out for our opinion on the new content in the coming weeks…

Irrational Games already had an absolute winner with the experience of Bioshock Infinite alone. Their first piece of single player DLC was always going to be a big seller, and many clamouring for their DLC after buying the season pass, it was time. All Irrational games had to do to make the general public giddy with excitement, was mention one word. One name rather, Rapture. So what with the game taking its glorious return to the where it all began, it was time to see if it could live up to the name, and to the expectations of the many who hold Bioshock in the highest regard.
So onto the content itself. Burial At Sea is set just before Rapture becomes the underwater haven that we know it as today, Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth are back together again for the adventure of a lifetime. Their mission is to find a missing young girl known only as ‘Sally’. Booker is well established in this implied alternate timeline in Rapture. He’s known as a bit a sleuth, a private detective that takes on any contract. Elizabeth is more of a mystery, much as she is in the single player campaign. Elizabeth has been given a wonderful fifties makeover. Complete with an elegantly fiendish looking outfit and cigarette. There are some characters and cameos you may recognise, but when I saw them I was pleasantly surprised. So I shan’t be ruining it for any of you fine folk.
Gameplay offers much of the same in the way of weapons and vigors. The return of splicers does add to the excitement somewhat. Not that it changes much of the gameplay, it’s just feels good to dive right in at these bastards again. Ammunition is quite scarce » Continue Reading.
Capcom’s Tomoaki Ayano has announced the latest gameplay mechanic to come in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV. Besides the Red Focus and the Double Ultra mechanics, we now have delayed wake-ups. This completely flips the script and changes the way everyone will play, especially grapplers like Zangief and T. Hawk as well as vortex characters like Seth.
This is a roughly translated statement from Capcom’s Saikyo Blog .
“We also have a third new battle system — Delay Standing… For you to experience!
Delay Standing allows you to alter the timing of your wakeup, making your rise take a bit longer than usual. With this, you can increase your options against opponents with strong okizeme!”
Ultra Street Fighter IV is due out in Q1 of 2014 on the Xbox 360 as both a downloadable upgrade to Super Street Fighter IV, and a full retail release.
UndeadLabs has announced the release date for their first DLC for State of Decay, the love it or hate it Xbox LIVE Arcade title that was quite a hit. The DLC will be on both XBLA and Steam on Friday, November 29th, and cost around $6.99 – for UK folk, check the dashboard on launch day.
The first expansion comes largely from you and your dreams say UndeadLabs, “less story, more survival. Long-term survival. More difficulty. New achievements, survivors, and weapons. We hope you have as much fun with it as we have.”
Scouring derelict buildings for supplies in the dead of night, fighting of swarms of undead or sneaking through blood soaked forests was all hugely entertaining. However I just can’t help but feel a lot of my enjoyment came from the fact that I wanted to enjoy it. Now I have finished it, and the review is complete. I won’t be playing it again in the foreseeable future, at least not until I hear CO-OP has been released and I can jump in with friends and see if that adds more to the game.
Title Update 4 has been confirmed to hit the game on the same day, with bug fixes and the new loot distribution system.
