DC Universe Online gets a Holiday Upgrade

With DCUO going free to play, many users have hopped on board for the adventure. Today the team is rewarding those who have joined the fight against evil with a special holiday bonus available this season title Seasons Greedings.

Larfleeze is on the warpath after Santa leaves him with not even a box of coal this year, he’s hiding holiday goods throughout Gotham City and Metropolis until he can ship them back to his home territory. Players must quest to find the stolen goods and team up with Hal Jordan to set this season right again, even Sinestro will get in on the madness surrounding the Lanterns this time around.

The full change log is here

Game Update 7: Season’s Greedings Features: 

  • Larfleeze Sightings: Players can receive a Feat if they can spotLarfleeze lurking about Metropolis or Gotham City once a day for, of course, 12 days in a row.
  • Watchtower PVP Map: Players can battle it out in a new 5v5 death-match arena located in the Watchtower.
  • New Holiday Marketplace Items:
    • Festive Winter Hat – Do you have a jolly side? Have you been wanting to show off your festive spirit? Does your head get cold in that brisk winter air? If so, then this Festive Winter Hat is for you!
    • Reindeer Antlers – Oh, deer! Declare your appreciation for these beloved holiday animals by wearing your very own set of Reindeer Antlers.
  • New Holiday Vendor Items:
    • Holiday weapon appearances to give your weapon a sweet new look
    • New Holiday Elf outfit set
    • Snowman form trinket
    • Holiday snowglobe grenade

The update is already live and free for all levels of players in DCUO, I would suggest getting started now while everyone else is ready to team up to find those goods. Sit it out too long and others might be tired of running through to find all those items.

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition gets a massive 2012 update

So you’re a Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition fan. I bet you never saw 12 pages of update information in move by move and character by character form, all of this is coming at you for the next patch in 2012.

Because the team at Capcom didn’t want you to feel like they were holding out information, they’ve detailed every single change in such precise detail that no one will have an excuse to claim nerfed characters or hidden changes that aren’t really on that list. Get ready to have your mind blown with a huge PDF from the team.

What I can say from just a few initial browses, this list impacts every single move by every single character in the game. Amazing but a huge read, I would suggest focusing on the characters you commonly battle and use the most to avoid walls of details.

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 updates! Vita and Heroes and Heralds

Nothing celebrates a morning like news of UMVC3 features, today we have news on not only the Vita version of the game but also on Heroes and Heralds mode finally arriving.

First up, Heroes and Heralds arrives December 19th for the 360 and PS3. The ability card mode has been long in the making and managed to tease players even after the fact. It’s a wildcard mode allowing players to concentrate their focus not only on combat but on timing and skill to use these cards to the best of their ability.

A few effects:

  • Invisibility
  • X-Factor Burst
  • Super Armor
  • Projectile Invincibility
  • Jump Increase
  • Team of One
  • New Combo Chains
  • Speed Boost
  • Assist attack stun
  • Jump Increase
  • Special attack cancels

Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 just turned into a mess again with all these new features. Even the most rehearsed Youtube characters can’t rely on chains with invulnerability, invisibility and other increases in a match going active when they don’t count on it. As the game passes into Month 2, it will only get added life with these updates. Check out the trailer for teasers of this in action.

Next, if you own a Playstation Vita and wish you could get in on some console gaming goodness, you don’t have to wait longer. The Vita version of UMVC3 is coming and it’s looking good. Capcom has an entire mini gallery out to showcase the progress of it. Check it out below.

Day 8: Android 10 Billion 10 cent sale reaches overdrive

Wanted to call it yesterday but today helps at least confirm it, we’re seeing a huge visit of top products from the start of the sale. Today SketchBook Mobile, Shazam, Flick Golf and more return. Check out the full list and it might be time to get those hopes up for last chances at big items.

There is a slight shift, the Color & Draw for kids is a tablet version of the app released earlier, no other shifts just cleaner visuals for larger screens. Everyone should keep fingers crossed while  hoping for Minecraft and possibly even Sims 3 to make a return in the final days. I’ll finally be picking up Flick Golf, the response seems good and even Train Conductor 2: USA. See you guys tomorrow with more info from Day 9
