Killing Floor Is Free and Christmas Themed This Weekend

Oh, sweet!  Killing Floor is free to play this weekend!  For those of you who don't know, Killing Floor is a PC horror themed FPS that offers online co-op for up to six players.  We reviewed it way back in 2009, and we really enjoyed the title, giving it a 4.5/5.  Not only is the game free to play, there's also a "Twisted Christmas" event going on.  That's right, you can blast mutant reindeer and gruesome gingerbread men into tiny little bite-sized pieces.  The "Twisted Christmas" event also includes new weapons, new achievements, and a new map.  All of the details are right here.  Check out the following video for more information.

Series creator weighs in on the subject

Twisted Metal May Receive Online Pass, Maybe Not

These days, online passes are a point of contention between gamers. People who purchase mostly new games (like me) don’t mind them, while used game aficionados hate the idea of an online pass cutting into their welfare checks (just kidding). The whole purpose behind online passes is to allow developers to recoup some of the lost profits from used game sales. But at least one developer doesn’t want one included in his game – namely David Jaffe, director of the upcoming Twisted Metal reboot.

Left 4 Dead Fan Film Looks like the Real Deal

Fan films are all the rage these days, but most can't seem to actually hold a visual candle to the source material.  While their hearts are usually in the right place, these films lack the financial backing to turn their creator's true vision into a reality.  That's what makes the Left 4 Dead fan film so unique - it's being created by several folks from Airsoft GI, manufacturers of Airsoft guns.  They also seem to have a few sponsors on board helping fill the coffers and creating something that looks like Left 4 Dead..

Dark Souls Patch Fixes Co-Op, Review Updated

The Dark Souls 1.05 patch has finally come stateside.  It rolled out in Japan a little over a month ago, and it began showing up on North American consoles shortly thereafter.  This new patch includes a host of features and fixes, but the most important one for me, and many other players, is an improvement on the multiplayer summoning system.  If you've been following the whole Dark Souls co-op ordeal, you know what I'm talking about.  Previously, I openly doubted whether any real solution would ever be enabled.  After hours of post-patch testing, I'm happy, nay, delighted to report that the multiplayer portion of the game has been fixed.
