VideoWatch: Seven games made better by DLC

It's this week's Eurogamer Show.

It's been a good week for people who enjoy half-cloaks and complicated bits of machinery, all things told. Star Wars Battlefront's new DLC let's you play as cape-sporting cloud man Lando Calrissian, whereas Fallout 4's Contraptions workshop DLC lets you tinker with all sorts of, well, contraptions.

Some tremendous steps toward LGBTI equality have been taken of late - the gay marriage referendum in Ireland being one particularly inspiring example. There's still a ways to go, of course, but overall it's encouraging to see acceptance growing in the public consciousness.

Whatever your stance on the humble moustache, mutton chops, beard or goatee, facial hair can be found growing with reckless abandon on a number of gaming's most memorable protagonists (and a few forgettable ones to boot). Once you delve a bit deeper, however, a pattern starts to emerge from among the bristles; facial hair is, basically, game developer shorthand for emotional development.

We haven't seen much in-game yet, but those 1080p cut-scenes look nice.

Sony and Naughty Dog unveiled The Last of Us Remastered some time before E3, but for whatever reason last week's showing in Los Angeles was still rather anaemic. We learned that the game will be out on 29th July, but very little of the trailer shown at Sony's conference was in-game.

With that in mind, Digital Foundry is keeping its powder dry for the game's release next month - or at least when we get to see substantial in-game content - but for the time being we've put together a quick video comparing the game's E3 trailer with the same cut-scenes in the PS3 version. The main differences will be a smoother frame-rate and higher resolution (although the PS3 cut-scenes will have been rendered at a higher res and then scaled down), but hopefully it will still whet your appetite.
