Darkest Dungeon

Darkest Dungeon's DLC Adds More Awesome Bad Times For Your Party

The new Darkest Dungeon DLC, The Crimson Court, tacks a couple more stressful mechanics on top of an already stressful game. I love it. Darkest Dungeon is a game about losing—you will lose all your party members as they explore dungeons, they will all lose their sanity, and you will lose the game. Despite being unrelentingly oppressive, it’s a fun time. If you’ve ever thumbed through a Lovecraft short story, it’s kind of like that, minus the racism. Wanna see the lowest depths of humanity? Watch as unspeakable monsters tear through your party after a main healer becomes a kleptomaniac, opens a trapped treasure chest and dies. The Crimson Court launched yesterday for PC and Mac, with a PS4 and Vita version to come. It adds a new character class, monsters and a creepy new area, but it’s most brilliant addition is the new Crimson Curse. It’s a kind of vampirism—in the new Courtyard area, your explorers can be bitten by monstrous mosquitoes who can give them this Curse. It can’t be cured in the Sanitarium, and must be sated by The Blood. If they’re thirsting for Blood, it’ll bring them down to normal. You can also READ FULL STORY…

Take-Two Shuts Down Paid GTA Online Cheating Tool, Forces Creators To Donate To Charity

Days after Take-Two Interactive shut down a popular GTA V modding tool, another modding service has come into the publisher’s crosshairs.

Force Hax was not the only tool of its kind, but it was one of the most popular ones. Advertisement Right now, the Force Hax official website redirects to a statement from the development team: “After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services. We will be donating our proceeds to charity and we apologize for any and all problems Force Hax services have caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community.” Rockstar confirmed with Kotaku that the former cheat enablers do indeed have to donate READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
