Don't Starve: Reign of Giants coming to PlayStation 4 next week

Don't Starve: Reign of Giants has been out on PC since May, but soon PlayStation 4 owners will finally be able to catch up. Klei has announced that the expansion will launch next week. It will hit July 22 for $4.99, and PlayStation Plus members will get 10% off at launch. 

Sniper Elite III DLC available now

Earlier this month, 505 Games and Rebellion released Sniper Elite III, a highly effective action game where sniping is the name of the game, as you get to watch the skulls of German soldiers get ripped to shreds by bullets. We gave the game fair marks in our review, and now the fun continues, as the publisher has announced the release of new downloadable content for the game.

Evo 2014: The indies played

Evo wasn't just an event to celebrate the best fighting games in the world. It also served as a showcase for some of the indie sector's greatest competitive efforts, with a chunk of the show floor dedicated to showing off some upcoming multiplayer efforts. In-between catching the tournament action, I had a chance to go check some of these up-and-comers out.

Opinion: How DLC lost its way

Downloadable content was a concept so full of promise. Those of us who remember the early days of DLC can recall the high-minded ideals of the proposition. Play more of the games you like and stave off unnecessary sequels in the process! It sounded like a win-win for gamers and publishers alike. Years later, as the concept has slowly become standard practice, DLC announcements are generally met with a shrug. Why don't we care anymore?

      I haven't seen any of these before but this is a thoroughly well-produced video! I'm just concerned it doesn't have much of an audience, it seems kind of redundant to those who just look at the front page and read articles they pick.
