If you've got a PlayStation 4 and have been following the story with live streaming with Twitch, you may already know the odd result of allowing the console's "The Playroom" app through the gate. What you'll see here is a barrage of users streaming the "game" trough Twitch with content both gaming-related and not, prompting Twitch itself to send our a reminder that only the former is acceptable through their site. The environment presented by Sony in The Playroom is about to get a big bump, as well, with two downloadable expansions in "My Alien Buddy" and "Toy Maker".
One of the most popular video game franchises that 2K Games has is BioShock. The original game had players fighting and a dilapidated under sea city where they battled against all sorts of crazy characters. The latest game in the franchise is BioShock Infinite and 2K and Irrational Games have announced a new DLC pack will be coming on November 12.
The first of two downloadable expansions for the game BioShock Infinite has been unveiled today for download. This download goes by the name Clash in the Clouds and is what the creators of this game call an "action-focused" expansion, it also arriving as the smaller of the two expansions that've been planned for this title. This game's developers at Irrational Games have also announced the second expansion: Burial at Sea.

Inside the DLC getting pumped up for release on the second of July is an Old West map with zombies. They're back, and they'll be wanting to re-take their saloon.
If there's one single joke we've seen today that's so radical and excellent that we'd rather see the real product than laugh at the trick, it's the DLC for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. In an effort to bring us back to the 1990's, a magical time when .gif images were used as webpage decorations, the folks behind this fantastic webspace have created a site, a teaser video, and more pixelated greatness than you can shake a joystick at - enter the Blood Dragon!
