Fallout 3 Comes Included With Fallout 4 On Xbox One

A subtle announcement many may have missed is the fact that Fallout 3 will be included with the Xbox One version of Fallout 4.

The announcement wasn't called out or highlighted in an overt way, and instead appeared as a ticker note on the bottom of the screen while Todd Howard detailed Fallout 4. Presumably, the included Fallout 3 will the Xbox 360 version of the game, and will be backwards compatible as opposed to being an updated version of the game specifically for Xbox One.

Tanya, who made her debut in Mortal Kombat 4, is making her way to Mortal Kombat X next week.

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon tweeted her release date. Kombat Pack owners can grab her on June 2 and she will be available widely on June 9.

We were impressed with Mortal Kombat X, even without the addition of characters like Tanya, Jason Vorhees, and the Predator. You can read our review here. It remains unconfirmed, but reports this morning indicate that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Mortal Kombat X may be delayed.

Choreographed Destiny Dance Party Comes Complete With Stage Show

It's a fairly well-known fact that you can make your Guardians dance in Destiny, and many take advantage of that ability everywhere from the Tower to the most inappropriate times (see: the middle of a firefight). Destiny dance parties are nothing new, but this crew took things to a whole new level with a stage show, choreography, and some perfectly-synced music.

Using Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" as a backdrop, YouTuber davidsondavidson99 captured five Guardians showing off their dance skills in a way we've never seen before. The result could have been a disaster, but they actually pulled it off and made it look pretty awesome and entertaining. You can check out the show for yourself below. The dance performance starts around the two-minute mark.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Comes To Vita Tomorrow With Symbiote Suit Spider-Man

Last December at PlayStation Experience, Disney announced it was bringing its toys-to-life game, Infinity, to the handheld scene. Tomorrow, that becomes a reality, as the starter kit arrives at retail.

Included in the starter is a rechargeable bluetooth base, the Spider-Man playset, the same toy box game discs that come with the console starters, and Spider-Man in his symbiote suit. You can use the black-clad Spidey in the console versions, and given the language that he’s “debuting” in the starter, he may be available for purchase later.

The base appears to have only two spots for items (compared to the console base, which two character spots and a playset/other slot). One of these is for a character (and circular discs). The other is for a playset or the hexagonal discs that add terrain, skies, and toys to the toy box. The bundle is priced at $ 59.99. 

For those looking for even more Disney Infinity information, check out our coverage hub. Disney Infinity 3.0 (introducing the Star Wars universe to the series) adorns the June 2015 cover.

Our Take
If this works smoothly, it would be a great way for kids to continue their toy box building on the go. That feature gets the most play in my house, and with my son’s adoration of Spider-Man in his symbiote suit, I need to make sure he doesn’t see this on the store shelves.

Furious 7 Car Pack Comes To Forza Horizon 2

Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One is adding eight cars from the Furious 7 movie for its monthly car pack that have been tailored to the film's high-octane driving.

The new car pack is now available for the system for $ 5 (not on Xbox 360, however), and the 1998 Toyota Supra is available to all players for free.

Microsoft has informed us that although the cars below were included in the Fast & Furious standalone expansion just released, those cars don't transfer from the expansion into Forza Horizon 2. If you want them in FH 2, you'll have to get this car pack.

All versions of the cars are the Fast & Furious editions

  • 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
  • 1970 Plymouth Cuda
  • 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • 2014 Maserati Ghibli S
  • 1970 Plymouth Road Runner
  • 2015 Dodge Charger R/T
  • 2015 Dodge Challenger
  • 1998 Toyota Supra 

For more on the game's Furious 7 standalone add-on, take a look at our Test Chamber on the expansion.

Our Take
It may seem like double-dipping to make fans buy cars that are already featured in the expansion, but think of it this way: The expansion was free (until April 10), and serves as a test drive of sorts to see if you really like and need to own those cars.

WWE 2K Comes To Mobile In New Simulation Game

If WWE Supercard doesn’t scratch your itch for wrestling on the go, 2K’s latest might be a better fit. WWE 2K is a simulation-style game coming this spring for iOS and Android.

Visual Concepts (which worked on the console versions with Yuke’s) and n-Space have created a version of the in-ring action for mobile devices. The full roster hasn’t yet been revealed, but John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Sting, Undertaker, Triple H, Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Bray Wyatt.

The game includes three match types, multiplayer, unlockables, and a career mode. If you want to be more original, you’ll be able to create your own superstar.

The title will cost $ 7.99 when it’s released. There’s no word yet on how the controls will be handled or if the title supports a bluetooth gamepad.

Our Take
2K has done a solid job of porting games like XCOM and BioShock to mobile devices. This game is built from the ground up, though. While its connected to the concepts in the console games, there’s no guarantee it plays exactly like them.
