  • News Wii U Owners Shunned Again As Warner Refuses To Reveal Injustice DLC Release Date

    "We have not made any DLC announcements for Wii U"

    If you own Injustice: Gods Among Us on the Xbox 360 or PS3, then you can enjoy some nice additional downloadable content right now. However, if you bought the same game for the Wii U — for the same price, naturally — then you're out of luck as far as DLC is concerned. At the time of release,...

  • Feature Robust DLC Ensures That Fire Emblem: Awakening Just Keeps On Giving

    We go hands-on with the map packs released in Europe so far

    Fire Emblem: Awakening is a truly amazing 3DS title, packing hours of compelling tactical action into one of the most entertaining games we've played all year. However, thanks to a growing selection of downloadable maps, the battle doesn't have to end when the credits roll. Before moving...

  • News Zen Studios Working on Star Wars Tables for Zen Pinball 2 on Wii U

    Still seeking the Force

    Zen Pinball 2 has been available on the Wii U for a good while now, but eager fans will have noticed the absence of the most recent high profile tables to grace rival platforms — those from the Star Wars franchise.

  • News Injustice: Gods Among Us For Wii U May Not Support Cross-Unlock Content With iOS Version

    Perhaps in a future update?

    Just days before its release in the UK, we were given unfortunate news that Injustice: Gods Among Us will miss its scheduled release date of 19th April this week in that region. For any Brits reading it's worth noting that it'll only be delayed by one week, launching on 26th April. Now, it seems, the spotlight has been...

    "It's as simple as that"

    At the weekend we reported on the rather depressing news that the Wii U version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted may be missing out on DLC support.

  • Video Assassin's Creed III - Tyranny of King Washington's "Wolf Power" Has Some Bite

    It's a dog's life

    As a big-budget release, Assassin's Creed III was always destined to have a fair bit of DLC.

  • News Ubisoft Has No Plans To Release DLC For ZombiU

    But it remains a "possibility"

    Downloadable content is still a bit of an alien concept for many Nintendo gamers.
