Bioshock 2 Gets More Singleplayer

2K Marin has announced the first piece of DLC singleplayer for Bioshock 2.  The “Protector Trials” will focus on the section of the game when the little sister gathers the ADAM from the corpses.  You will play the Big Daddy and will be in charge of protecting the little sister from the crazed splicers.

There will be three different difficulties that you can test your skills at, across six new maps taken from the most popular areas in the Bioshock 2 world.

The “Protector Trials” will be coming to the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 on August 3rd, and will run you 400 Microsoft Points or $5.


Modnation Racers Wins The Race, No Photo Finish

Last month was a crazy time for Racing fans, with Modnation Racers, Blur, and Split Second all coming out within a week of each other.  The NPD’s have revealed the best selling of the three, yet none were really outstanding.  Modnation Racers came in the 15th spot on the software sales, which isn’t too bad considering it was a Sony exclusive only title.

However, Blur and Split/Second unfortunately didn’t even make the top 30 in game sales.  Analyst Michael Pachter said that Blur sold “Well below our estimate of 100,000 units” and that Split/Second did not do much better.

It’s a shame that good games do not get that recognition it deserves at times, but when you have 3 potential top racing games coming out within 7 days of each other, what do you really expect?
