Why play the game
when you can just read the book?


Here is some old news from Reddit that we missed a few days ago (sorry Reddit).
A patch has been released for Assassin's Creed 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction that makes the games no longer validate with Ubisoft's DRM server while you play them. You will still need an online connection for the initial launch of the games, but after that Ubisoft won't be constantly checking to make sure your game is valid.

A new Mass Effect 2 DLC may be coming out a few weeks before the third game.

A BioShock novel will be released in March.

EA has unlocked Operation Hastings for Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam for Xbox 360 and PS3 even though neither of them have completed the 69 million team actions.

Don't forget that contests are now ending every Monday and Thursday night at 6pm PST. Today's trivia contest closes January 3rd at 6pm PST. Send your contest entry to You will be entered for a chance to win a game on Steam, including some new additions to the contest pool that we picked up during the holiday sale.

Thanks for your support during the daily podcast, and don't forget about the new schedule. Also, watch for new reviews and game videos soon!
