With our Warlock at level 30, we decide it’s time for another character. Our Titan races to level 20, then jumps up to 24 thanks to
the legendary gear in our vault. Further progress means spending hours scouring the Moon for Helium Filaments, and at last, after 150 hours, we begin to lose interest. By the time you read this, The Dark
Below will be out, and we’ll be back on the hook again. It was nice while it lasted.
Mario Kart 8 Wii U
We worried it might seem incongruous, but jump-boosting past the Master Sword on the
Hyrule Castle track in Mario Kart 8’ s first DLC pack leverages familiarity to fantastic effect. In fact, that’s something of a theme for this addon, the recreation of F-Zero’s
Mute City a particular delight thanks to playful touches such as pit areas refilling your coins. This is DLC done right: a fresh
injection of life for Wii U’s joyous racer.
Middle-earth: Shadow Of Mordor PS4
Another DLC expansion this month sends us back to Mordor, this time to impale orcs on the blades of warrior princess Lithariel. The Nemesis system still hasn’t lost its shine, its web of enemies as enjoyable to study and unpick as ever, but the open world’s flaws are all the more obvious in the light of Far
Cry 4’ s wonderfully dynamic Himalayan landscapes. Here’s hoping the inevitable sequel offers something as imaginative as
Shadow Of Mordor’s standout feature.
