OMG!

When the concept of downloading old games was first realized, there were three games I swore I would buy regardless of the cost.  Secret of Mana, which I have on the Virtual Console, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which will come out this summer and the greatest brawler of all time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, which I am still waiting on….

But not for long! Hit the jump for details and video!

Review: Prince of Persia – Epilogue DLC

Posted in DLC, Xbox 360 with tags on March 7, 2009 by mornaur

Prince of Persia was one of my favorite games of 2008 (Granted, I am still catching up on 2008). I am well aware of the love/hate thing that people seem to have with the game, and having come into the game with no bias, I ended up loving the game a lot. The biggest complaint I had for the game was the fact that combat did not feel consequential. It was fun to execute and watch long combos, but there was no meaning it in. I could get beat the hell up, and it wouldn’t mean anything. Other than that, the game was a blast for me.

Suffice it to say when Ubisoft announced a DLC for the game, I flamboyantly jumped for joy like Jesse at a John Mayer concert. The new DLC titled “Epilogue” continues the plot from where the cliffhanger ending of the original title left off. Ubisoft has also claimed that they have taken much of the criticism they received for the original game to heart, and have implemented changes within the DLC, including implementing a higher difficulty level. The release of the DLC is a good sign. In a statement made before the release of the game, a Ubisoft rep said they expected it to sell 2.5 million copies of the game, and 1.5 million copies would be disappointing. To date, I don’t think the game has even broken 1 million yet, so I was fearful that they were going to drop the series, especially in these times. The fact that they are still actively supporting the game is a sigh of relief for me.

So did Ubisoft deliver on its promise? Hit the jump to find out.

Carts Before Horses, etc.

Glad that someone has the right idea about DLC:

“It’s getting to the point where downloadable content is almost a given for any videogame worth its place in the market. We’ve come to expect it, and when you’re even talking about DLC for Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain, you know we’re entering a bold new era.

Luckily for us, Quantic Dream has its priorities straight, and has explained that its primary focus is on making the finished product before moving onto any possible extras…”

Praise be!  Between this, Burnout Paradise, and The Lost & the Damned, I think developers might actually be starting to comprehend how DLC should work…
