Section 8: Prejudice Frontier Colonies Map Pack

More downloadable goodness will be available for Section 8: Prejudice on on July 13, 2011. The Frontier Colonies Map Pack will feature two new maps: Desolation and Overseer. The first is a dry desert, covered in the remains of a failed civilization, while the latter is a military base overlooking a forest valley. Both maps can be played on any game mode, including a new Skirmish mode. This mode will play as a team death match, but Control Points cannot be captured or hacked. This mode will be released separately from the map pack later this summer. The Frontier Colonies Map Pack will be available for 320MSP, and the Skirmish game mode will be completely free. More information can be found on the official site.

Section 8: Prejudice InfoGraphic has some big numbers

Section 8: Prejudice has not been on Xbox Live Arcade long, but it is already a hit. This is increasingly apparent in the new infographic from GameSpy, tallying all of the deaths, deployments, free falls, and loadouts that have occurred since the games release. The numbers are amazing, so it’s best if you just read it for yourself.

Tribes: Ascend gets new trailer, may miss the boat to XBLA

Tribes: Ascend is going free-to-play, but may be straying away from Xbox Live Arcade. The game is set for a fall release, but Hi-Rez Studios’ Todd Harris told Joystiq that they’re “focused on delivering Tribes: Ascend for PC only.” When asked about the original plans to bring the game to XBLA he stated that “an eventual XBLA version, and even PSN version, is not out of the question but neither will be this year.” Doesn’t sound overly promising, but in the meantime we have the incredibly awesome Section 8: Prejudice which more than fulfills any large scale Sci-Fi shooter needs.

What we are playing: Week of June 5th

This is a new piece we’re starting to let our readers know what we’ve been playing the past week. This will be coming out once a week from this point and should give a little insight into what we play just for fun. Please leave a comment letting us know what games have you hooked.

John Laster – Prep work for E3 is consuming my life this week, but I did find the time to finish L.A. Noire and play a little Snoopy Flying Ace.

Perry Jackson – Really haven’t been playing too much, mostly older games like Mega Man 3 but I just got back my PS3 from repairs so I’m looking forward to Infamous 2 next week as “the game I’ll play while watching all the crazy E3 stuff”.

James Heiger – I’m thinking about playing some Super Street Fighter 4 in preparation for the arcade edition coming out. To keep the consistency, I will play the Street Fighter 2 tribute table on Pinball FX 2 as well.

Andrew Crews – I finished up Doritos Crash Course this week as my “not fun” game. To balance out my frustrations with Doritos Crash Course, I’ve been relaxing with a little Gin Rummy which is a solid title that not many people know about. Check it out, it’s only 400MS points!

Justin Last – I am playing Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood lately, but as soon as I can connect to PSN I will be spending some time with my complimentary copy of Infamous in preparation for picking up the sequel. On XBLA Commanders: Attack of the Genos is an underrated gem that’s been calling to me so I will play some of that in the mornings before work this week.

John Drawdy – I have been playing Section 8: Prejudice, which I can’t seem to get away from. Another non surprise is I am still playing Halo: Reach, but at least now I am having some fun and trying my hand at some awesome HORSE maps.

Steve Melton – Broke down and picked up a PS2 and Gran Turismo 4. Yeah, I know, I should be playing Gran Turismo 5. But between buying a PS2 and GT4 in 1080i on a PS2 set me back 80 bucks. That’s only 20 bucks more than GT5, I can run it in HD, and I don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a PS3.

Nathan Bowring – Finally picked up the DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also got back into Halo: Reach to practice firefight until my friend gets a copy. Then I can finally play with someone on my skill level!

Damon Fillman – Just finished up L.A. Noire and have recently moved on to Avatar Legends. What an incredible game!  Oh yeah, and there’s this little thing called E3 happening next week that we’ll be covering.  Ever hear of it?
