Its a pretty interesting week with no big game releases hitting anymore. Its the time of year I look forward to playing the big pile of games I’ve already bought, seeing the latest movies and drinking lots of hot cocoa. What’s interesting about this week, however is that in lieu of proper game releases, we are seeing some great DLC for those games we already have. If you are looking for a new fix, DLC is the place to look this week:
- Bastion - Stranger’s Dream (free on Steam, 80 points on Xbox Live)
- Gears of War 3 – RAAM’s Shadow (1200 points on Xbox Live, but comes with 2400 point Season Pass which is recommended)
- Battlefield 3 – Back to Karkand (free for Limited Edition owners, $15 for all others)
Interesting how you can bypass the usual DLC price with other options, could this be a turning point in DLC pricing? I’d hope so, I can only take so many $10 or $15 map packs before my wallet cries.
