No GravatarUbisoft has released the latest Watch Dog 2 trailer, revealing the a new mission for players who pre-order the game will receive an extra mission.

The mission titled Zodiac Killer, is based on a real life serial killer, that roamed and scared the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960’s. The killer claimed to have taken as many as 37 lives, though police have only officially linked him to seven victims. After he commited the murders, he would send the media and police encrypted messages, taunting them by revealing information about the crimes that only the killer would know, or about future possible victims. Fifty years later, and the Zodiac Killer has yet to be identified.

In the pre-order mission, “an unwanted ghost of San Francisco’s past has resurfaced after fifty years. A killer is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland like the infamous Zodiac Killer of the Sixties, and he’s taunting the police and news outlets with coded messages. Will you succeed in decrypting the messages and hunting down the copycat?”

They have exposed the dangers of ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking city infrastructure that is in the hands of a corrupt corporations and being used to manipulate the lives of the citizens.

Between Marcus Holloway and the Dedsec, it is the player’s responsibility to take down the ctOS 2.0 and protect the lives of the people of the Bay Area.

Watch Dogs 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 15.

No Gravatarlevel_90_boost

The new expansion for World of Warcraft, Warlords of Draenor, is available for pre-order today on Battle.net.

If you pre-order Warlords of Draenor, you get a free level 90 boost that you can use today. It is good for one character. If that character is over level 60, you can get your professions to max level as well. If you would like to boost more characters to level 90, you can pay $60 in the in-game store instead of pre-ordering extra game codes.

The Digital Deluxe Edition ($69.99 USD) includes the Dread Raven mount and matching Dread Hatchling pet, two Starcraft 2 portraits, and a Warsong Pennant for Diablo 3. The Standard Edition is $49.99 USD and Blizzard expects a release date on or before December 20, 2014.

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the instant level 90 boost. Some are saying it’s not fair because they put a lot of time and effort into their level 90 characters. Others are saying dungeon and raid groups will be full of players that don’t know how to play the class they chose.

How do you feel about the instant level 90 boost? Can it take the enjoyment out of the game for serious players? Many players are still on the fence about it, let us know your opinion on the matter.

No GravatarIt’s the days after Christmas. You have gift cards abundant and games coming out for all girls and boys. But what can you get? With all the choices lying ahead?

Have no fear, with all the bundles abound, waiting to be found, I got the ones with the most “extra” kick aside from the gaming bit (Sorry for my cheesiness).

 

Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition 

Collector's edition view

First and foremost, I love Tomb Raider, so I had to list it first. It doesn’t have the best content, but I believe it has the most bang for your buck. It includes:

  • A realistically rendered Play Arts Kai Lara Croft figurine approximately 8 inches tall
  • Weapon pack DLC
  • 3 iron-on experience shield badges
  • Tomb Raider soundtrack with 10 songs
  • An Endurance survival tin made to look like it was recovered from the shipwreck
  • 5″ X 7″ Lithographic print
  • A double sided poster with an island map and the box art
  • Access to the Tomb Raider Scavenger Hunt to participate in challenges for prizes and more

I simply love the Lara Croft figure, it’s so detailed and perfectly muddy not getting it would kill me. I hope the DLC weapons are exclusives to these game copies with the collector’s edition to get my money’s worth, and the CD is a nice touch (I legally download all my music).

Price: $99.99

 

Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm Collector’s Edition

Starcraft 2 Collector's bundle

Starcraft is an MMO with its own fanbase, so I listed it mainly so Starcraft fans can assess if the collector’s edition is worth the extra money. All of the great additional merch that comes with the game seems reasonable to me, especially with the extras for other Blizzard MMOs you might play.

  • A behind the scenes DVD and Blu Ray 2 disc set
  • Heart of the Swarm Art Book
  • Collector’s Edition Soundtrack
  • Zerg Rush mouse pad
  • Exclusive in-game content

The in game content includes a Torrasque Ultradisk and portaits in Starcraft II, pet banneling in World of Warcraft, and blade wings and a banner sigil in Diablo III.

Price: $79.99

 

Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector’s Edition

I don’t have much hope for this game except for the fact it’s made by Sega, but because this list is about the extra and not the game itself, it earns a spot. This game has some very good extra content.

  • Resin Powerloader figurine in a limited edition Xeno Hive box
  • USCM Dossier, iron-on badges, and graduation certificate
  • Recruitment card
  • LV-426 Recon photo
  • USS Sephora schematic
  • Mission brief

But this is just physical extras. The exclusive in-game content includes:

  • Four playable movie characters
  • Extra game level
  • Additional Marines character customization features
  • Exclusive multiplayer weapons
  • Sonic Electronic Ball Breakers
  • Phase Plasma Rifle
  • Ripley’s flamethrower
  • USCM Academy firing range

Price: $99.99

 

Bioshock Infinite Premium Edition

Bioshock Infinite Premium

This bundle definitely comes with awesome stuff.

  • Collectible mini edition of The Art of Bioshock Infinite
  • Exclusive digital soundtrack
  • Murder of Crow keychain
  • Handyman figurine
  • Lithographic print of propaganda

It also comes with a gear pack that gives three exclusive power ups in the game.

  • Bull rush: Sprints become melee strikes and can knock down enemies
  • Extra! Extra!: Audio logs give “Silver Eagles”
  • Betrayer: In the PC game causes possessed enemies to explode once you kill them. In the PS3 you get Bioshock Infinite themes. The XBox 360 players get Booker and Elizabeth avatar costumes.

There is a way more costly bundle that costs $70 more. What’s the difference? It comes with a Songbird statue. You must really really want that figure to spend so much money for the Ultimate Songbird Edition of the game.

Price: $79.99

 

God of War: Ascension Collector’s Edition

God of War Ascension Collector Edition

The God of War franchise has outdone itself with this beautiful pre-order which includes:

  • An exclusive 8 inch Kratos statue
  • Premium Steelbook case
  • Digital game soundtrack
  • Multiplayer Double XP unlock
  • PS3 Dynamic theme and PSN Avatar pack
  • A pass for all future DLC

The last perk seems very promising.  Especially since I don’t like always paying for future DLC.

Price: $79.99

 

This is the best of the best I’ve gathered so far. I hope as the year reveals more new games to try out, they come out with more tempting bundles like these.
