The Latest In Evil DLC

The Latest In Evil DLC

Holy shit! It’s the return of Evil, Evil DLC! We’ve been on hiatus through all of the summer, but now we’re back to scold all of the pre-release preoder bonuses and day-one DLC drops for the big spring season.

Far Cry 3-Monkey Business Pack

Available: Why the heck hasn’t Far Cry 3 come out yet? I feel like that game should have been out in April. When is this thing — December? This isn’t gonna be out until December?

Price: Nominally free.

What You Get: Four bonus missions involving bombs strapped to monkeys and some special death humiliations for multiplayer.

Why It’s Evil: Because this will inevitably invite the wrath of our friends at PETA. Using monkeys as suicide bombers? That’s rather inconsiderate of animal rights. Also, using Randall from that goddamn honey badger video, to narrate this trailer (NSFW language, also a lingering shot with honey badger balls in full view) is just phoning it in. already ripped this game, published by Square Enix, pretty good, but if you want to progress through this game, fighting additional demon bosses and hearing new music, it’s going to cost you $US2.99 per boss. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck hearing the same tune and fighting the same battle that you bought, for $US6.99 I remind you.

Evil Score: 5/5. The $US6.99 base price is on the high end of an iOS game, and you get so little for it, I’m astounded Square has the chutzpah to sell you Satan himself for $US9.99. That’s evil.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter: Zero Dark Thirty

Available: December 17

Price: $US9.99

What You Get: A map pack based on locations in Pakistan tied to the American hunt for, and killing of, Osama Bin Laden.

Why It’s Evil: Well, map pack DLC is a given for any military shooter and it’s not like there’s much sympathy for Bin Laden in the constituencies that will be buying and playing this game. It’s still militainment, but then a dollar of every DLC purchase goes to the “Project Honor” charity that gets trotted out every time Medal of Honor does something cringe-inducing, like link to the makers of assault weapons through the game’s main site.

Evil Score: 1/5, mostly for cynicism. But hell, we’ve been killing Hitler repeatedly in video games. It’s not like Bin Laden appears in this map pack, so what’s the harm in running around the land where he was holed up for so long.


  • Wait, why does a warfighter map pack (1 map) get a 1/5? Because it was written by an american.

    Osama Bin Laden was handled poorly compared to how Saddam Hussein was treated. Osama was unarmed, they should have captured him and put him on trial. If its democracy, then it has to be democracy for everyone, you can’t assassinate some people just because they’re evil. Prove they’re evil via trial.

    • I think Bin Laden proved he was evil when he orchestrated the death of thousands of people. There needs not be a trial to prove that…

      • Doesn’t matter. I think he’s evil. But we should have taken the high road and done a trial anyway. I’m still impressed with the Saddam Hussein situation, that was done mega awesomely.

        • Which part impressed you the most? The kangaroo court or the poorly handled execution? Saddam was a dead man anyhow, he had no chance, America just drew it out and tortured him over a long period of time.

      • So you believe Bush, Blair and Howard should be executed tomorrow?

        Or is your post meant to be

        ‘orchestrated the death of thousands of white people’

      • There are people who still believe 4 dirka dirkas with no weapons could hijack a suspicious looking aircraft and fly it inot a building with pin point accuracy? How about the pentagon that amazingly had little debris and no massive pile of dead bodies… kinda like it was hit with atomahawlk…. But i guess im just crazy.

    • Being in a democracy does not entitle you to a trial. One is a mode of selecting representative government – the other is a trial. The presumption of innocence is part of the Australian legal system that is created and regulated by the government the(regardless of it being a democracy). Which is irrelevant as he was killed in Pakistan.
