The Last of Us
Left Behind

By Jorge Figueiredo - March 16th, 2014


FYI: While I have tried to keep this spoiler-free, it is impossible to talk about Left Behind without referring to parts of the game that occur later on. In fact, the DLC warns you that you should finish the main game before engaging in Left Behind. You have been warned.

The Last of Us was one of my favourite games of 2013. For those that haven’t played it, it is very intense and can be quite emotionally exhausting – in a good way. Naughty Dog did a great job leaving the world of Joel and Ellie open in a few spots, allowing for some extended story-telling goodness. Left Behind is one such story, and is no less emotionally charged. If you enjoyed the main game, you will definitely love this plot extension.

Drinkbox Studios’ Guacamelee! is well-loved by us Thumbers around the office. This PS3 and Vita title really took the ring by storm and body-slammed the hell out of word “platforming” with bold characters, a hilarious story, and the power of el pollo. For those of you that missed it, two DLC packs have been released that will add some variety and some challenge to your game (to put it lightly).

Halo 4 Champions Bundle

By Mehran Malek - August 29th, 2013


Sometimes we tend to forget how much value we get out of our video game purchases. Take Halo 4, for example. Your retail purchase gets a campaign that can be played in heartfelt solo mode, split-screen with a friend, or online with a few more. If the campaign wasn’t enough, in the weeks following Halo 4′s release, we were treated to 50 new objective-based missions. This is all in addition to the map-editing tool and the online multi-player (Infinity) that Halo has come to be known for. So with hundreds of hours entertainment, what else could we ask for?

Endless Space: Disharmony

By Rituro - July 2nd, 2013


Almost one year ago, I had the pleasure of picking apart Endless Space, the space-based strategy game by Amplitude Studios. Despite being rife with comparisons (both favourably and otherwise) to Master of Orion, my review could be summed up as follows: good game, nice interface, hated combat. I did end up playing a few more games after that review, just to see if I could get over my combat gripe. I didn’t; but I did end up getting some multi-player in with a friend which ended with me dominating the galaxy and him deciding the game was too complicated1. Fast forward to this month and what should I find in my inbox, but a copy of the new Endless Space expansion pack: Disharmony. Well, I have used far worse reasons to re-install a game – time to see what the new expansion pack will bring to the table.

By Mehran Malek - June 3rd, 2013


If you’re a fan of DLC, I can do you one better: free DLC. That’s right! So step out of your comfort zone for a second and try to forget that you have been trained to pay for new maps, character abilities, weapons, vehicles, or snazzy skins and avatars – because the folks at i-FRIQIYA have just released their second set of free-DLC for their top-down racer, Fuel Overdose.

Released this past May 28th, the Wanderer Vehicle Pack gives you access to five new vehicles: Vintage, Buggy, Dragster, Racing and Future. Counting the Mercenary Vehicle Pack released in April, this brings your total possible vehicle count to 20.

Alien Hive
Blitz Mode

By Jorge Figueiredo - May 19th, 2013


Last month I posted a review for Appxplore’s sliding puzzler: Alien Hive. Last week, Appxplore announced a new mode for the game called “Blitz Mode”, in which the player has only 60 seconds to attain as large a score as possible. This update is free (for both iOS and Android), and is an even more addictive version of a game that I was already playing far too much for my own good.
