Mario Kart 8 DLC

Mario Kart 8 DLC

Mario Kart 8 just got some brand new DLC that makes the game almost brand new again. Haven’t picked it up in a few months? For $11.99 you can snag 6 new characters and 16 new playable tracks – that’s almost half the game you had already bought. Half of the tracks and characters are available now, and the other half will be coming soon (May 2015). Smart staggering, so it keep players interested. I dig it. The packs also include some customization to the colors of your Yoshi’s or Shy Guy’s, and a few new vehicles to choose from.

One of the more notable characters that you get to play right now is our favorite green-clad hero, Link, who looks hilarious when you put him in a cart that he is clearly too large for. Nice touch with the awkwardly bent legs, Nintendo. Some other fun traits they’ve included for Link? He throws a temper tantrum when he gets hit – similar to one that I might throw in real life for the same reason, and when you jump off of a ramp, he jumps out of his car and does his signature sword spins. If you’re lucky you’ll get flashed a Triforce every now and then. Link comes complete with a motor bike and parachute to match.

Track wise, all of the new tracks (or re-purposed old tracks) were great additions to the game. The LoZ one in particular (Hyrule Circuit) was strewn with Rupees instead of Mario coins, and came loaded with some of those classic Zelda box-opening or secret-finding noises. Similarly, there’s a Captain Falcon/F-Zero track with lots and lots of speed boosts throughout.

I’m already looking forward to practicing more so I can not be in 9th place when the next round of DLC comes out, including some of the Animal Crossing characters. This will probably give a nice boost to online racing as well, so if you’re looking for a real challenge take it up with the internet.

Let us know what you think of the DLC in the comments.
Toad rules, Rhi out.

Activision Confirms "At Least 20 Content Drops" for Modern Warfare 3

We’ve reported on it before, but Activision has sent out a release today confirming that they will be providing a 9 month “season” of post-release content for Modern Warfare 3, starting January 24th. Activision is calling this unprecedented, and in a sense it is, but the question is what are the “content drops” going to be. We’ve heard that they will be “like nothing seen before” consisting of maps, Special Ops Missions, new game modes and more.

Activision Launches Call Of Duty Elite App – Finally – Updated

Activision Launches Call Of Duty Elite App – Finally – Updated

Activision Blizzard took to its Facebook account today to announce its release of the much awaited Call of Duty Elite app. Unfortunately they have only cause more anger than relief, as they are only release the App for iOS on Tuesday 1/10/12. They have not mentioned the release of the app for any other devices or operating systems at this point in time.

Activision Blizzard has been getting a lot of heat for the handling of Call of Duty Elite since it’s launch and one of the selling points was the mobile app, which 3 months after launch still isn’t available. We’ll be reaching out to Activision to see if they can provide an update on additional devices / OS support but for now, folks with iPhones rejoice, everyone else, we’re used to being second class citizens.

— Update 2:00

Venture Beat that the Android version will launch a week later –
