Resident Evil 5’s first downloadable episode “Lost in Nightmares” is now available for both Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. The DLC features Chris and Jill tracking down the location of Umbrella founder Ozwell E. Spencer’s mansion. Also, downloading “Lost in Nightmares” will unlock Excella Gionne and Barry Burton as playable characters in THE Mercenaries Reunion. Totally intense.

Sure, Left 4 Dead 2 is only a month away, but that hasn’t stopped Valve from supporting Left 4 Dead. Crash Course is out for both the Xbox 360 and PC today. The downloadable content adds a new campaign (playable in survival and versus mode), new dialog, new achievements, and new locations.
Three new achievements have been listed for Mass Effect, pretty much guaranteeing that new DLC will be on the way, soon. The way the achievements are listed seems to hint at an arena-type DLC, with the new area being called Pinnacle Station:
- Undisputed: Complete Ahern’s survival mission (50 Gamerscore)
- New Sheriff in Town: Take first place in any combat scenario on Pinnacle Station (50)
- Best of the Best: Take first place in 12 combat scenarios on Pinnacle Station (50)
Behemoth announced on their blog that some new DLC, the Necromantic Pack, will be available soon. The pack adds a number of new things:
- Two new characters, the Necromancer and Cult Minion
- A new animal orb, Dragonhead
- Two new weapons, the NG Skull Mace and Chainsaw
There’s no set release date or price, they are saying that’s up to Microsoft, but do note to expect it very soon.
Sure, Left 4 Dead 2 is coming out in November, but that isn’t stopping Valve from releasing more DLC for the original Left 4 Dead. The new campaign, Crash Course, will be playable in single player, co-op, and versus modes and (adding some continuity to the campaigns) takes place between the No Mercy and Death Toll campaigns. Apparently, the helicopter rescue off the rooftop of the hospital ends…poorly. The new campaign will run for 560 Microsoft points on the Xbox 360 (it’s free for all the lucky PC users).
I just finished playing through Fallout 3’s Broken Steel (which was overall pretty amazing, though I died a ton during the last section of the mission) and will be starting Point Lookout soon, so having more DLC on the horizon is always a good thing.
Defy hostile alien abductors and fight your way off of the massive Mothership Zeta, orbiting Earth miles above the Capital Wasteland. Mothership Zeta takes Fallout 3 in an entirely new direction – outer space. Meet new characters and join with them in a desperate bid to escape the Aliens’ clutches. To do so, you’ll wield powerful new weapons, like the Alien Atomizer, Alien Disintegrator, and Drone Cannon, and deck yourself out in brand new outfits, like the Gemini-Era Spacesuit and even Samurai Armor.
A strange Alien signal is being broadcast throughout the Capital Wasteland, originating from a crashed UFO. Is it a distress call, or something far more sinister? That question is answered when you find yourself beamed aboard an enormous Alien spacecraft, with only one alternative – to fight your way to the bridge of the ship and secure your escape.
* Find and exploit new and destructive alien technology, like the Alien Atomizer and Drone Cannon.
* Explore the vast Mothership and learn the secrets of the Aliens’ master plan.
* Thwart the Aliens’ attempt to stop your escape, and take over the Alien ship before it wreaks havoc on the unsuspecting Earth below.
* Fight against the Alien Invaders, their robot drones, and turn their own horrible experiments against them.
* Ally yourself with an unexpected array of characters, both from the Capital Wasteland and from Earth ’s past.

Halo Wars latest downloadable content, “Historic Battles”, will be available July 21 for 800 Microsoft points and offers 4 new multiplayer maps:
• Barrens (1v1 Map): Difficult terrain channels units into killing zones. The side that controls the Forerunner artifacts will have the advantage.
Street Fighter IV isn’t out for 12 more days, but that hasn’t stopped Capcom from announcing some DLC for the game. The first expansion pack, Championship Mode, which is free, will add replay mode, a new points system, and enhanced tournament matching. Replay mode seems pretty cool, if Halo 3 taught me anything, it’s that replays should be in every single game, no matter what.
There is also more DLC down the road, with various new outfits available for the characters.
Additionally, they confirmed that Bionic Commando, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will be releasing this May with the PC version soon to follow.
