EA promises free DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront

EA promises free DLC for Star Wars: Battlefront

EA and Dice have gotten a lot of flack for Star Wars: Battlefront, partially because of the season pass that they're offering. Namely, people don't want to have to shell out over $100 just to get the same, full game that everyone else will be playing. In fact, the DLC that they've announced for the season pass appears to have more content than the base game itself. The good news is that for those that don't want to pony up the extra cash, there's still more free content on the way.

Rock Band 4 will finally let you disable the kick pedal

When Rock Band first debuted back in 2007, suddenly everyone and their brother was a drummer. This was the first time that many people had access to a simple drum kit, and could play along with a game. While that was great for a lot of people, there's a bit of a learning curve to get your feet to play nice with your hands. After 8 years, Harmonix is finally making that pesky bass pedal optional.

3D print your own custom Halo 5 Spartan

3D print your own custom Halo 5 Spartan

When I play a game for any length of time, I tend to get attached to the character. This only really applies to characters that I've created, named, and customized. If I'm playing a Mario game, I don't care nearly as much as an RPG or an MMO where I've battled foes for the weapons and armor that they wear. Eventually, I'll move onto other games and forget about those characters. But what if you could save them, and display them for all to see? Well, Halo 5 players will be treated to that ability.

Xbox One now supports button remapping for standard controllers too

Last week, the Xbox One was treated to a big new software update that not only introduced backwards compatibility with over 100 Xbox 360 games, but also improved the console's dashboard interface, making it easier to navigate. Even better, however, is that the update introduced a feature that, until now, was exclusive to Microsoft's new Xbox One Elite controller: total button remapping. This customization option allows users to swap button functions, like switching the X and B buttons, or A with the left trigger, for example, and is now available on the console's standard controller.

Fallout 4’s game-breaking bug, and how to avoid it

I've been trying to take a more old school approach to playing Fallout 4. Namely, I've been avoiding looking at guides or tips online, because I want to experience the joy of exploring, and finding secrets on my own. I've also found renewed joy in sharing my experiences with friends who have chosen to take the same approach. However, when it comes to game-breaking bugs, it's worth a look at what not to do. Minor spoilers after the jump.

Star Wars: Battlefront season pass gets you 16 maps, and a custom emote

Season passes are the new fad for AAA games. Buying one is a way to give money to a publisher up-front, in exchange for a discount on DLC that will come out over a period of time. Sure, it saves you some money, if you plan on buying all of the DLC, but it turns your $60 game into a $110 game. So what does the season pass for Battlefront get you?
