EGM’s TAKE: As noted, the major addition is the Starhawk beta which many fans will be clambering to download. Normal folk will have to wait until the end of the month to access it. Another fan favorite will be the Uncharted 3 Flashback DLC, which you can find details on here, adding four revamped maps from Uncharted 2. The major problem with these updates has to be the full game downloads, supposedly it’s a matter of convenience but is it really? It takes several hours to download and install them and they are usually way overpriced, paying an extra $10 for an older game seems pointless when you can easily buy a copy online and have it delivered to your house. We urge you to give the Reckoning demo a try, if not to see if this is the game to rescue the fantasy genre, then to get your free Mass Effect 3 weapon and armor.
