PES 2016 Euro 2016 DLC Free, Some Official Kits Missing

about X hours ago from

Konami has announced that it is offering Euro 2016 content for free to existing PES 2016 owners as DLC, as well as creating a standalone release on PS4 and PS3 featuring the tournament and the full PES 2016 title. This summer's tournament may feature 24 international squads competing against each other – and Konami has the official license for the event – but not all of the teams' official kits will be in the game.

Twenty-four countries play in the tournament, but the game itself only features the official kits, players, and faces for 15 of the countries (in bold below). The rest of the teams will be outfitted in generic uniforms.

Silicon Studio, the developer behind the Bravely Default RPG series on 3DS, is teaming up with Hironobu Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker. The specifics haven’t yet been revealed, but Silicon suggests that the partnership is for multiple games.

The likeliest subject is the promised console versions of Terra Battle. The free-to-play mobile game has received millions of downloads.

As part of Mistwalker’s “download-starter” campaign, more characters, missions, and music have been added as more people loaded the game onto their devices. The console editions were part of that program.

about X hours ago from

Youtuber and modder Cosmic Contrarian is at it again. Contrarian is known for creating massive battles within Fallout 4, like this one we covered back in November where they pitted every legendary creature in the game against one another.

The latest video says it has 20,000 Demon Deathclaws facing off against a fort filled to the brim with Brotherhood Of Steel soldiers. It's a heck of a spectacle, even if the framerate (understandably) chugs in some places; you can watch the whole thing right here:

Reader Discussion: What Do You Think About The HTC Vive's Price?

about X hours ago from

Earlier today, HTC revealed the price for the Vive. The VR headset, which comes bundled with two games and two wireless controllers, will cost a whopping $799. For those keeping track: that's $200 more than what the Oculus Rift will cost.

Since so many of you had strong opinions about The Rift's pricing we thought we'd revisit the subject again. So sound off! What are your thoughts? Do you think that price point is ludicrous? Are you canceling your Rift preorder to grab a Vive? Do you think VR is silly nonsense, or the future?

Let us know in the comments below!

HTC has just revealed via a blog post the price for the Vive, a virtual reality headset developed by both HTC and Valve. The consumer edition of the VR headset will cost $799 and ship in early April with two games bundled with it, Fantastic Contraption and Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives.

You can read up on our history of the Vive's development here. We also recently got to spend time with several games playable on Vive (and other VR platforms) in an event put on by Valve and wrote about 10 that are worth checking out.

[Update] Sega's Giving Away Another Trio Of Games On Steam

Update: A third wave of free games has hit the Make War, Not Love promotion page. The games are Gunstar Heroes, Renegade Ops, and Vikings: Battle For Asgard. You can enter your email address on the page to receive codes, though SEGA notes that it might take a few days for them to get to you because of the high volume of requests to work through.

Original Story (February 17 at 2:20 p.m. Central): Sega's holding its third annual Make War, Not Love promotion, where players can participate in a meta battle to unlock free DLC. You don't need to participate to grab a few free games, however, and you can download three at no cost right now.

Log onto Steam and visit the pages for Golden Axe, Hell Yeah! Or Jet Set Radio. There, you'll notice that they're bundled as part of a package. Add that to your library, and they're yours. That's it.
