Armored Kill DLC trailer proves that Battlefield 3 hasn’t forgotten its roots

The main appeal of the Battlefield series – for me, anyway – was always about vehicular violence. Headshot from halfway across the map? Pfft, anybody could do that. Running over an enemy with a tank on his own aircraft carrier? Now that’s something to tell the grandchildren. Vehicles just make everything better, and this latest trailer for the Armored Kill DLC proves that. Coming this September, Armored Kill will bring five new vehicles to the battlefield, as well as a whole bunch of vehicle-related unlocks. Road warriors, saddle up.
Oh, and in case you were wondering just how awesome vehicular combat can be, watch this.

Portal 2’s Perpetual Testing Initiative DLC Is Never Going To Give You Up

If you needed a reason to dust off your copy of Portal 2, here you go : Aperture Science is about to introduce the Perpetual Testing Initiative, as Cave Johnson announces with his customary style in the above trailer. On one level, this announcement is about the release of free DLC that will let players create and share their own Portal puzzles; and, on another level, it’s about Aperture Science taking outsourcing to new levels by conning the Multiverse (as depicted by a rather pathetic cephalopod) into doing its dirty work for it. What it’s really about, however, is the fact that once user-created puzzles start hitting the Steam Workshop, Valve/Aperture (it’s getting harder to tell them apart, isn’t it?) is going to have you testing for a long, long time.

You won’t really care too much about that, though, because Cave Johnson laughs at an octopus. No, really.

Full press release after the break.
