Just ahead of PAX East 2011, the team at developer Uber Entertainment have just released a new PC version update for its multiplayer action game Monday Night Combat. The update, via Steam, has some neat content additions, including being able to outfit the game's Assassin character in Penny Arcade's Cardboard Tube Samurai.

Other new additions include new Outlander gear for your team (complete with new taunts) and a new All-Star player ranking system where players can guage how good of a player they are compared to other players on a server. Your player rating will automatically adjust; if you are on a killing spree your rating will go up. If you keep getting killed the ranking will go down. You can check out the new content for the game at the trailer after the jump:

If you are attending PAX East 2011 this weekend you can drop by the Uber Entertainment booth and get access to a code that will unlock an exclusive Authentic Battle Damage version of the Cardboard Tube Samurai outfit. You will also see a preview of an upcoming new map, Uncle Tully's Funland.

On the one hand, it's a little sad that Robot Entertainment won't be finishing Age of Empires Online. On the other hand we can't think of a better developer to take over the reigns than Gas Powered Games.

Monday Night Combat celebrates Valentine's Day with new update and video

Monday Night Combat is a game that has a bit of goofy humor in it anyway and this week the multiplayer shooter's developer team at Uber Entertainment decided to make a little love, not war, with a new content update via Steam. The update adds some Crimson Gear for all of the game's Pros. It also adds a "Broken Heart Headshot Effect" for anyone playing the Sniper and wearing the Crimson Gear. There's also a new "Rose Petal Death Effect" for any Pro wearing the same gear.

But that's not as fun as the newly added music video "You are My Pitgirl" as we get to hear how someone just love the female member of a Monday Night Combat team. We have to agree.

Review: Monday Night Combat

Team Fortress 2 has been the undisputed champion of team-based, competitive multiplayer chooters. With characteristic classes, high-octane gameplay, and continued support from the developers, it's no wonder that TF2 has gone on to become one of the biggest games on the PC. However, they certainly don't have a monopoly on this sort of creativity, and upstart Uber Entertainment has managed to deliver an incredible freshman game that is on par with, if not better than, TF2. Monday Night Combat is a polished masterpiece, and despite a few nagging issues, it remains the best multiplayer shooters we have played in almost four years.

Magicka lands on top of Steam's weekly top 10 best selling PC game list

Magicka pretty much came out of nowhere this past week to land on top of Steam's top 10 best selling PC games (based on revenue). The action-RPG from developer Arrowhead Game Studios and publisher Paradox Interactive sold over 30,000 copies in just its first 24 hours and remains on top despite issues with bugs in the game.

Second place this week went to Electronic Arts' new survival horror sequel Dead Space 2. Another small download-only game, Uber Entertainment's multiplayer shooter Monday Night Combat, is in third place this week. The full top 10 list is as follows:

1. Magicka - Arrowhead Game Studios/Paradox Interactive
2. Dead Space 2 - Visceral Games/Electronic Arts
3 Monday Night Combat - Uber Entertainment
4. DC Universe Online - Sony Online Entertainment
5. The Sims 3 Ultimate Bundle - Electronic Arts
6. Breach - Atomic Games
7. Call of Duty Black Ops - Treyarch/Activision
8. Battlefield Bad Company 2 - DICE/EA
9. Penny Arcade Adventures Combo Pack - Hothead Games
10. Dead Space - Visceral Games/EA
