Xenomorph And Leatherface In Mortal Kombat X DLC

They mostly come at night. Mostly. They also sometimes come when the realms align for mystical martial arts tournaments.

Continuing their romp across every fictional universe, those face-hugging, chest-bursting Aliens are joining the Mortal Kombat X [official site] melee in DLC. Given that Predator is already in MKX as DLC, you’ll be able to relive teenage arguments. And pit them against Leatherface. Or Jason Vorhees. I’m oddly fond of games adding wacky extras as DLC. Heck, throw in musicians signed to Warner Bros. too. I’d certainly go for Goro tearing the arms off Linkin Park.

LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Trailer Roams Manhattan

We missed out on that mega-super-turbo-movie-comic-game crossover bonanza LEGO Dimensions round these PC parts, probably because it’s one of those buy-toys-to-put-them-in-the-game doodads made for consoles. Oh well! Our next outing to a plastic world will come with LEGO Marvel’s Avengers [official site] in January, following a delay. It’s far more than just the movie Avengers, mind. A new trailer shows superhero antics in its ‘free roam’ zones, and you’ll also catch a wee glimpse of Jessica Jones fighting crime in her Jewel costume, which… look, yeah, maybe I’ve hoped to play as Jess in her old leather jacket, swigging cheap bourbon (and in the game).

Batman: Arkham Knight Drops New Batpatch

Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] returned to sale in October, after months of work fixing the poor performance that saw it pulled from sale. It was still wonky. That’s a shame, becase it’s a pretty good game according to our Adam. Work still continues, and this week has brought another patch which fixes more things but, apparently, still has issues.

Dying Light DLC Season Pass’s Price Is… Going Up $10?

I don’t know anything about business but I know that if you’re not disrupting, you’re bankrupting. This isn’t 2014, grandma. Here in 2015, we’ve disrupted the economic paradigm with an innovative shareconomy. Just the other day, I used the app Walk A Mile to rent my shoes to someone who wanted a smarter pair for a business lunch.

So yeah, you might be used to DLC and DLC season passes becoming cheaper over time, but pssh! We can disrupt that. Get this: the Dying Light [official site] DLC season pass’s price is about to go up from $20 to $30. Its makers say the upcoming expansion included with it, The Following, has grown big enough to warrant a higher price.

Batman: Arkham Knight – Warner Bros Offer Full Refunds For Steam PC Version

UPDATE: Green Man Gaming will also be honouring full refunds until the end of 2015. I’ve updated the article to reflect this.

Warner Bros have announced they will offer a full refund to Steam owners of their troubled PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site].

“Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product,” announced the company on the game’s Steam page. I’m flagging up the Steam stuff because it looks like this is an offer or an attempt at damage limitation which relies on Steam’s refund system.

The Red-Faced Knight Returns: Batman’s Back On Steam

So, let’s try this again. After a three and a half month hiatus, Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] is now available on Steam again. It was pulled off sale in July after criticisms of the PC version’s poor performance reached fever pitch, but I don’t think any of us really expected it would take this long to return. But now it has, along with all the DLC released for the untroubled console versions in the meantime. Warner are also offering all previous Arkham games for free to folk who purchased Arkham Knight between its initial release and November 16, along with a forthcoming Community Challenge Pack DLC and “Batman: Arkham inspired Team Fortress 2 items created by the Batman: Arkham community.”

The re-release hasn’t gone completely smoothly, however. SLI and Crossfire aren’t playing nice, and some folk with single GPUs are even reporting issues on newer drivers. Meanwhile, “For Windows 10 users, we’ve found that having at least 12GB of system RAM on a PC allows the game to operate without paging and provides a smoother gameplay experience.” Holy high disposable incomes, Batman – 12 Gigabytes?

Batman Returns: Arkham Knight Re-Released Next Week

Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] will be re-released on October 28th, just over four months after it was pulled from sale for launching with big performance problems, publishers Warner Bros. announced today. After months of interim patches fixing it up for folks who bought it while it was available, they’re planning one big final patch including extra content that has since arrived for console versions.
