In 10 days, the new DLC of Mafia 2 will finally be available to all on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Entitled Joe's Adventure, it will show us what happened to Joe when Vito was sent into jail for a few years and it will also take us to unexplored areas of Empire Bay.

To all DLC lovers, you should be pleased to hear that Mafia 2 will extend its main story with a new adventure focused on Joe Barbado, Vito Scaletta's best friend. The player will be able to find out what happened during the several years they spent apart from each other. I won't say more but be warned that there is a major spoiler in the press release.
Mafia 2 was launched about a week ago, and it hit the stores without earning the unanimous support of the specialist press. Ever divergent opinions accrued on the Internet to the great displeasure of slightly unsettled forum members. But we are not pretending to offer the most reliable and downright compelling review here since subjectivity is the key word. Subjectivity is greatly defined by one’s personal expectations of this new adventure with the Mafia. In order to let you discover the game on your own – and thoroughly enjoy it – we will obviously avoid revealing anything about the storyline. In the same line of thinking, the videos will only contain a scanty amount of information on the scenario. So you can rest assured: there is nothing now to prevent you from losing yourself reading this new review.
Kudos to Balita who was very helpful by translating this article.

We are running a bit late but I'm just back from a well-deserved vacation so I'm sure you'll forgive us for waiting until today to show you a bunch of videos taken from the Mafia 2 video that was released on August 10. The console versions are clearly not as sharp and smooth as the PC version but they are still doing a good job at conveying the great atmosphere of the game and no matter what some people think, they are very enjoyable to play despite some aliasing and framerate issues. I chose to cut the demo in three different vidéos so we will logically start with the first one this morning. Two more will come later today, enjoy! Update: Part 2 and part 3 are now up.
@Tinks: they started screwing over some of their long time 2nd party partners like Argonaut and (to a degree) Rare. (1 Hour ago)
during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (5 Hours ago)
if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (5 Hours ago)
I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (6 Hours ago)
Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (6 Hours ago)
@droezelke: The complaints he has in that video are mostly valid I'd say, sadly. (6 Hours ago)
