Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry Will Stand Alone

By John Walker on February 6th, 2014.

Assasssin’s Creed IV released itself a significant DLC add-on called Freedom Cry, back in November. Naturally the PC version suffered a last-minute (almost literally this time) delay, but it did eventually emerge at £8/£10. Here’s a strange thing. Later this month the slave-themed separate storyline is getting re-released, this time as a standalone purchase. It’s a chance to say the best word in gaming! EXPANDALONE! Ooh, that felt good.

Jagged Alliance Is Back In Action Again, With Crossfire

By John Walker on August 2nd, 2012.

Seriously, this was the best of the screenshots.

(You know, the last time I went on about how utterly brilliant that word is, the guy who coined it got in touch. He is my hero.) Shogun 2: Total 2 War Shogun is doing this some more, with the addition of Fall Of The Samurai: Total Shogun: War, and as further proof they’ve released a new video of non-game footage, and some shots: screen, which are by far the most ludicrously watermarked images I have seen in over a decade of doing this nonsense.

Expandalone! Shogun 2: Fall Of The Samurai

By John Walker on November 28th, 2011.

He's expanding, alone.

I love saying “expandalone”. Say it out loud. Sometimes those cute little terms that spring up can be nauseating, but expandalone is the best. EXPANDALONE! Creative Assembly have announced an EXPANDALONE for Total War: Shogun 2, called Fall Of The Samurai.
