Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batgirl DLC Gets Release Date, Price

Batgirl DLC Batman Arkham Knight

While the news of Batman: Arkham Knight‘s PC problems have dominated the headlines this week, you might remember all of the controversy about the game’s DLC prior to launch. In another astonishing gaffe from Warner Bros. Interactive, the game’s publisher began to sell a $40 season pass for DLC that hadn’t even been announced yet.

Backlash ensued and Warner Bros. soon revealed that some of the DLC would be dedicated to Batgirl, called ‘A Matter of Family’. We now have a release date for that extra content, as well as a price. More on Batgirl’s Arkham Knight content after the break.

Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! Announced for PC and PS4

Last year, I picked up Cook, Serve, Delicious! up on a whim when it was discounted in the Steam holiday sale, enticed by its description of “hardcore restaurant sim”. Well I’m glad to say that its incredibly difficult gameplay certainly delivered. It’s all about keeping up with orders, keeping up with managerial duties (like cleaning the toilets) all while attempting to become the most desirable eatery in the SherriSoda Tower.

As far as satisfaction goes, Cook, Serve, Delicious! was the complete package as you can play it for hours on end, trying not to fudge everything up and learning new and more complex dishes as you go. So it might seem a bit unusual that Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! has been announced, but developer Vertigo Gaming says that the sequel will be “massive” and that “everything is new”. Find out more after the break.

Warner Bros. Knew Batman: Arkham Knight PC Was Broken

When Batman: Arkham Knight was released last week, people expected it to be exceptional. And on PS4 and Xbox, it was. The same couldn’t be said for the PC version of the game though, as it was so horribly broken and its framerate was so poor that even those on high-end gaming machines struggled to play it.

As a result of the backlash and due to the amount of players requesting refunds, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive pulled the game off sale and promised to fix everything soon. While it wasn’t good that Arkham Knight had been released in that state in the first place, many appreciated that Warner Bros. was at least trying to make it right.

However, according to some sources, Warner Bros. knew about Batman: Arkham Knight‘s PC problems and still released the game anyway.

Will Fight for Food Review

The first game from developer Pyrodactyl was Unrest, an adventure RPG set in ancient India that touched upon poverty, disease, and social and political change. So you’ll understand when I say that their latest game, Will Fight For Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour, an RPG and brawler that stars a down on his luck wrestler (Jared Casey Dent) seeking revenge on the cartoon villains that betrayed him, is massively different. Even that title is a parody in and of itself.

So being such a huge tonal shift from their first title, Will Fight for Food is a huge risk. Plus, in addition to being marketed as a tongue-in-cheek fighting game, Pyrodactyl has also been keen to point out the fact that their game isn’t just punching, kicking and wish-upon-a-prayering as its dialogue system is quite rich too. But does the game deliver on all fronts or is it as hapless as Jared’s future prospects? Read our Will Fight for Food review to find out.

Earlier this year, EA told investors that by March 2016 we would see “another” Sims 4 expansion pack released, along with multiple game packs. There’s been no official word on that Sims 4 expansion (although it’s most likely The Sims 4 Pets), but we do know that the next game pack will be The Sims 4 Spa Day.

Following on from the chilled out Outdoor Retreat, Luxury Party Stuff, and Perfect Patio Stuff add-ons, The Sims 4 Spa Day will let your Sims to get their ‘rest and relaxation’ on. There will be a series of health and wellness related activities on offer from massages to mudbaths and you can find out more about this game pack after the break.

Fallout Shelter Introduces First Fallout 4 Character

When Fallout 4 was announced ahead of E3 2015, that was incredible, as fans had been begging Bethesda to make it since Fallout 3 came out. Then, at Bethesda’s actual E3 2015 press conference, when they announced that Fallout 4 would be out in November, that was even better. But when you’ve been waiting years for a game to be released, even four or so months can seem like forever.

So to tide us over until then, Bethesda released Fallout Shelter. A free to play mobile app that lets you manage your own Vault-Tec vault (as well as the people in it), Fallout Shelter has been massively successful, even knocking Candy Crush Saga off of the top spot. It also has 70 million play sessions a day – so get ready to become even more addicted as Fallout Shelter is about to introduce a new character from Fallout 4.

FIFA 16 Gameplay Trailer Stars Messi, No Touch Dribbling

Every year, without fail, EA releases a brand new FIFA game. And every year, EA has to come up with some significant new features and tweaks to prove that this year’s game isn’t just last year’s game in a new box with a new roster update.

EA has already tried to prove how different FIFA 16 is, with the biggest addition being the inclusion of women’s international teams. As important as that is, we don’t just want new characters models, new names on the back of the jerseys and new pronouns in the commentary, we want tangible gameplay changes. So could ‘no touch dribbling’ be the change that we need? According to the new FIFA 16 gameplay trailer, no touch dribbling will change everything.

Turn-Based Action ‘RONIN’ Gets a Launch Trailer

If you’re a fan of ninja video games then you’re in luck, because they’re certainly not in shortage. There’s the adorable (and deadly) Mini Ninja, the gory Mortal Kombat, and the iconic Strider to choose from. We’ve got a lot of choice there, but for RONIN, the new ninja game publisher by Devolver Digital, it means that things are looking a little crowded.

However, it’s not all nunchucks and shurikens at dawn with this one, as RONIN uses turn-based action to set it apart from everyone else. ‘Turn-based action’ may sound like a bit of an oxymoron but it does seem to work well, and after testing and tweaking in Steam Early Access, the game has now launched proper. Watch the RONIN launch trailer after the break.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Released

These last few days have not been particularly joyous one for fans of the Batman. Batman: Arkham Knight was supposed to be a bombastic, over the top and extravagant finale to Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham trilogy but instead the game has been at the centre of a huge controversy.

When the game launched, those who bought Batman: Arkham Knight on PC found that the game had such a poor framerate that it was unplayable. Some people asked for a refund, others just left scathing reviews, and others criticised (PC development team) Iron Galaxy Studios for not having done a better job. Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive chose to pull the game from sale until the problems were fixed and now, a new Batman: Arkham Knight PC patch has been released.

League of Legends: Tahm Kench Heads to PBE, Master Chef Tahm Kench Skin Revealed

Earlier this week, Riot Games unveiled Tahm Kench, The River King as the new League of Legends champion. We’d already gotten a teaser video and patch 5.11 also allowed us to hear his maniacal laugh (by standing near the river and typing /laugh into the chat box) but this was our first official meeting of the slimy new character.

Riot says that Tahm Kench works best as a tanky support champion as his ulti (Abyssal Voyage) allows him to get both he and his lane partner out of tricky situations and he also has a pretty powerful stun/slowing attack too. Understandably, everybody wants to get a chance to play as him and now they can as he’s just been added to the League of Legends PBE (Public Beta Environment). Find out more (and see the first Tahm Kench skin) after the break.
