Ubi gives fans Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Fan Pack DLC

To award loyal Rainbow Six Vegas fanboys and to give the game's online multiplayer a nice little tuneup, Ubisoft recently announced they'll be releasing a FREE set of RSV2 'Fan Pack' downloadable content this July.

The Fan Pack will feature the three new maps Calypso Casino, Murdertown and CQB Training and add new XP ranks beyond Elite as well as additional A.C.E.S. Along with the Fan Pack, Ubi will release an update for the title that'll make RSV2 even more enjoyable including the addition of a grenade indicator, a new High Stakes setting, a few balancing tweaks and various gameplay updates. There's also a rumor floating around that with the Fan Pack DLC download gamers will receive a free buy one buffet get one free printable coupon. That rumor has yet to be confirmed. Make the jump to read the complete list of RSV2 changes that'll go live next month.

Bad Company parodies Gears and Rainbow Six


Following in the sneaky footsteps of their Metal Gear Solid 4 parody, DICE just released two more Battlefield: Bad Company parodies, this time targeting Gears of War and Rainbow Six. And again, they caused us to chuckle uncontrollably.

The first promo vid takes on Gears of War's unforgettable "Mad World" trailer, where the B Company crew comes up with their own, more happy rendition that incorporates a musical injection of shortening bread. High-larious! The Rainbow Six parody, embedded after the break, is also enjoyable as it mocks the over exaggerated, charades-style communication style RS soldiers are known for. You must admit, that even if you aren't interested in the game, it's refreshing to see EA and DICE take this kind of entertaining marketing approach. They get the X3F seal of approval.

X3F TV -- Points>Life: The Beginning and the End


Each week, X3F tips gamers to the tricks of the trade of Achievement hording in Points>Life. Every week a new achievement is unlocked to help you continue your unhealthy obsession with the Xbox 360 meta-game.

This week in Points>Life we're taking a stroll through memory lane and Team Rainbow's first vacation to Vegas. In Rainbow Six: Vegas there are two easy tips we can give you, the first is a simple reminder that some people may not realize and the second is a glitch in the end of the game that could save you a headache while trying to end the mission.

Both tips are classic, meaning they're old ones ... but somewhere someone is picking up this game for the first time and we're here to help!

Sunday brings Assassin's deals and boxers too [update]

Update: Success! We we able to slash our way through Best Buy Canada's security to discover that you can get DMC4 and Turok bundled together for $89. High price assassin FTW!

Today is Sunday, which means we get to look through the all the Sunday deals to spot some of the best gaming deals. We like to think of ourselves as high price assassins whose goal is to rid the world of corporate foolery and deny high priced gaming goods from making it to store shelves. That's just how we roll.

Speaking of being an assassin, we discovered that Best Buy has Assassin's Creed and Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for $39 and also priced the original Rainbow Six Vegas at $29. Also, being stealth like a kitten, we noticed that Toys R Us has placed a $49 price tag on Guitar Hero III (game only) and we spotted Circuit City giving away free "DENIED" boxers (the kind you wear) with the purchase of Conflict: Denied Ops. We tried to sneak into Canada's Best Buy stores for some high price murdering, but security prevented our entry and thus, no savings justice could be made.

Rainbow Six won't see Vegas again


It looks like what happens in Vegas really will stay in Vegas, as Ubisoft designer Philippe Therien recently told Eurogamer that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will mark the last entry in the series to be set in the city. "We really feel that the story of Vegas is done. We've explored as much of Vegas as we wanted. For now, we're pretty much covered with Vegas," said Therien. Therien added that having Rainbow Six focus on a single city worked well, but that the team is unsure if future installments will be based on a similar concept. So, if you want more Vegas, your last shot hits shelves on March 21. Next stop, Rainbow Six Stringtown.
