273w ago - Metal Gear Online will getting a brand new (free) mode, dubbed 'Bomb Mission' soon.

To quote: Bomb Mission will be available to all MGO players on January 27th. In this new mode, two teams go head-to-head.

The offensive team will attempt to detonate a bomb at a targeted location, protecting the bomb until it detonates.

The defending team must protect its stronghold and prevent bombs from exploding by using a special coolant.

We're not sure how many people still play MGO, but it's great to see Konami offer brand new content at a price we all can approve of.

Burnout Paradise Free Pack Details, Coming February 6, 2009

300°
273w ago - On February 6th, PS3 owners of Burnout Paradise will be able to download a free patch that adds a whole lot of content. To quote:

• In-Game Store (PS3/PC only) - An in-game browser will connect to the "Criterion Games Network." From here, you'll be able to see all the game's updates and purchase any of the upcoming premium DLC.
• Tweaked vehicle handling - The earlier cars are now tweaked to be easier for newcomers to use. "These cars are now slower, harder to crash and less likely to spin out at low speeds."
• Junkyard sorting - You'll be able to compare the stats of cars, and you'll be able to filter out cars, bikes, and upcoming DLC vehicles.
• Stunt Run timer changed - Stunt Run will now have a different timer that starts much slower than before. This allows beginners more wiggle room to start a combo. Experts will still be challenged: the larger your combo, the faster the timer runs out.
• Events rebalanced - All events have been modified to accommodate the new car speeds.
• Road Rage tweaked - Players no longer get additional time once they reach the target score. This is great, because we usually intentionally crash in order to end this mode.
• Enhanced visuals - In-game items, like billboards and smashes, are now easier to spot. The lighting has been tweaked...
