AH: Assassin's Creed 2 DLC: Overpricing Issue

January 31st, 2010

The new DLC pack "Sequence 12: Battle of Forli" has been released today, but don't go buying just yet!
Seem's there's been a mistake with the pricing, and the pack is currently costing...how much?

That's right, over 90,000! Unless you have that much cash to burn, I'd seriously suggest waiting until the pack is released for the correct price of 320MSP. There are no achievements associated with this DLC.

Update: The DLC pack has been fixed, still no achievements as planned, but at least you're not paying a fortune for it.

Lockheed’s HULC – a step towards MJOLNIR

January 30th, 2010
We've talked about exoskeletons in the past - modern-day companies are working on systems that assist humans to enable feats of strength that would not be possible without the skeleton. Enda noticed a new one - this one is called the HULC (Human Universal Load Carrier), which just got a new power source that will allow users to perform for 72+ hours. We're definitely getting closer to the Spartan project! (Louis Wu 15:09:23 UTC)
