Game Informer is reporting that Gears of War 3 players will have an opportunity to get their DLC at bargain-bin prices.  Microsoft will offer a Season Pass, which will include access to the first four DLC packs for the game, as well as an exclusive “liquid metal” weapons set (check out the Lancer below). The Season Pass will cost 2400 Microsoft Points (about $30), and Microsoft says the discount will be 33% off the price of buying each pack individually.  The Season Pass will be available on launch day, with the first DLC pack scheduled to hit in November.

When Hurricane Irene coming ashore along the Atlantic seaboard and wreaking havoc along the East Coast, more than 1000 theaters from major chains experienced closures over the weekend, drastically impacting the box office numbers and resulting in the lowest movie-going weekend of 2011.  The Help easily captured the top spot again with $14.3 million, and female assassin flick Colombiana pulled in $10.3 million for #2. Another newcomer, the Guillermo Del Toro-produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, finished the weekend at #3 with $8.7 million, narrowly surpassing the $8.65 million collected by Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  And…

It sounds like William Monahan is going to be a busy guy for the next few months.  On Saturday, we reported that he would be working on the script for The Gambler, alongside Martin Scorsese.  Now, The Hollywood Reporter says the Oscar-winning scribe has been tapped to work on Sin City 2 for Robert Rodriguez. Sources indicate that Monahan will be polishing up the most recent draft by Sin City creator Frank Miller, and that the studio hopes to have the script locked down and ready to shoot by the end of the year.  Rodriguez had previously indicated that financing…

Piano, trumpet, cowbell, and a distinct lack of face-melting dual guitar solos?  This can’t be the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, can it?  You bet your sock-covered cock it is!  The crowned kings of funk-rap-rock-and-roll are back with their 10th studio album, I’m With You.  Clocking in at just under 60 minutes, the 14 tracks are unlike anything you have heard from the L.A. foursome, yet distinctly Chili Peppers. Technically, I suppose this isn’t the Chili Peppers you know, since it’s the first release with Josh Klinghoffer replacing guitar-god John Frusciante.  Admittedly, I was worried when I found out Frusciante…

During the 2011 Video Music Awards, MTV gave us our first exclusive look at footage from The Hunger Games.  The clip weighs in at just over a minute, and doesn’t give away too much, but we get to see Jennifer Lawrence in action as Katniss Everdeen.  Check it out below:   Looks good to me, although I had hoped for a much bigger reveal.  Here’s hoping we’re not too far away from a full-length theatrical trailer.

Earlier this week, we reported that GameStop had pulled all PC copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution due to the inclusion of a competitor’s coupon.  Apparently, the community backlash has been strong enough that GameStop has taken it upon themselves to issue an apology, via a $50 gift card.  Here’s the official email that has begun circulating: Dear GameStop customer, Earlier this week, GameStop removed a competitor’s coupon from standard edition PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a recent release by Square Enix. We were not aware that the product box would contain this competitor’s offer. We regret the…

In an official press release, Epic Games unveiled the names and descriptions of all 10 multiplayer maps that will ship with Gears of War 3.  Check them out, along with some screenshots, below: Checkout – Checkout’s combat takes place in the carcass of an abandoned superstore. The shop owners tried to move their inventory with a closeout sale in the weeks leading up to the HOD evacuations, but ultimately had to walk away and leave everything to time and history. The intense close-quarters combat of the store aisles makes every decision important. Weapon selection is key, cover is essential to…

In keeping with tradition, Bethesda has announced that the first round of DLC content for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available on Xbox Live before coming to other platforms.  The same strategy was employed for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3.  Here’s the official press release: On November 11th, Bethesda Game Studios brings us the next installment in The Elder Scrolls franchise with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Xbox LIVE will be the first to bring players the experience of Skyrim’s add-on content in this revolutionized open-world fantasy epic where players can explore any way they choose. The…

As if Martin Scorsese didn’t already have enough projects on his wishlist, The Hollywood Reporter says that he will team up with screenwriter William Monahan for a remake of the 1974 film The Gambler.  The original starred James Caan as an inspirational New York English professor who suffers from a crippling gambling addiction.  Caan’s performance was nominated for a Golden Globe. Monahan has yet to begin writing, so it’ll probably be awhile before we have any movement on this project.  Scorsese’s first family film, Hugo, will be released around Thanksgiving, and he is also scheduled to direct Silence and The…
