More “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” DLC incoming

Those lovely chaps at Eurogamer have excellent news – the DLC pipeline for their sadly-underrated “Warhammer 40K: Space Marine” game continues to gush forth exciting new content.

This is Captain Titus' happy face. Would you like to see him when he's ticked off?

Following the recent, free downloadable ‘Exterminatus’ co-op mode which recently showed up in-game once you updated the game comes a new ‘Chaos Unleashed‘ mode, a new enemy class and some new multi-player maps – for 800 Microsoft Space Bucks or the equivalent on your platform.

You can expect to see that in December – there’s also a new collection of bunch of Legion skins due at the same time for 240 MSP.

Any new add-on for this game sounds great to me and I’m kind of apt to support it as I really would like to see a sequel to this title – THQ’s recent words on the subject don’t inspire hope, but as my dear mum (never ever) says – ‘it’s not over until the belligerent inquisitor sings‘.

In which negotiation fails and radical alternatives to debate are called for...(via Game Craic)

Why you should never confiscate your child’s Blackberry…

Over at the UK version of Gizmodo, their weekly ‘Notes from the Frontline’ column (which follows a serving officer in the London Metropolitan Police Service) outlines just why a child and his mobile phone should never be parted.

It’s a tale of family strife, concealed weapons and the fated allure of Blackberry mobile phones and it made my jaw drop a few times.

These are strange (and occasionally) frightening times in which we live, and no mistake.

That “Grand Theft Auto V” teaser is here…

Kotaku have the one minute, 24 second-long teaser trailer for Rockstar’s next controversy magnet – “Grand Theft Auto V”.

As predicted, we’re in Rockstar North’s iterative take on Los Angeles, nefarious doings are afoot and the engine looks quite pretty.

Won't somebody think of the children?

This is the part where I tell you that I’ve never played a “Grand Theft Auto” game and that this is, in fact, the extent of my knowledge of the series.

If you have thoughts on what you’ve just watched, feel free to regale me with them in the comments.
