Morederlands: 87 Bazillion Mins Of Borderlands: Pre-Sequel

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel this, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel that. Personally I'm waiting for Borderlands: The Post-Sequel, which is like regular Borderlands but without lyrics. For now, though, Pre-Sequel looks a fair deal like regular Borderlands, except it's moon-flavored. That means enemies that freeze and shatter, low-gravity airborne (not to be confused with Battleborn) antics, and other such space-defacing shenanigans. Also, you won't actually find 87 bazillion…

How Much Hearthstone’s Expansion Will (Or Won’t) Cost You

Sometimes I don't think I'll ever be able to escape how much Blizzard shaped young me as a gamer and a person. Case in point: while I haven't really invested much time (or any money) into Hearthstone, I saw that the first section in Blizzard's outline of expansion Curse of Naxxramas' pricing structure is titled "All Naxx-cess Pass" and thought, "Damn it, now I can't…

Penny For Your BioShocks: The Humble 2K Bundle Is A Steal

Rarely do I effusively recommend a bundle made up entirely of games I already own, but it's kinda hard to argue with every BioShock, Spec Ops: The Line, Mafia II, The Darkness II, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown, among others. The Humble 2K Bundle does come with a slight catch (a flat rate of $20 if you want a couple of the more recent games), but…

Fortnite To Be Online-Only, Will Have Mods… Somehow

Quick recap: once upon a time Epic's Fortnite was set to be kinda grimdark and more than likely a premium game (i.e. money upfront, party in the back). Over the course of a couple radio silent years and some fairly large revisions, however, it's emerged more lighthearted and - rather crucially - free to play. It is, then (as is usually the case with these…

Feature: Gears Of Left 4 Deadcraft

Video Preview: Epic’s Fortnite Is… Interesting, Early

For the past many years, Epic was known as the One True King of console grimdark. Gears of War was about colossal mountain men with veins running rivulets through their stone hewn necks and stubble-dappled chins, their rage matched only by their apocalyptic sorrow and love of running in slow motion to popular songs that described their situation eerily well. But now we have, well,…

Finally: Someone Mixed Dota 2 And Mario Kart

It's like they say, Internet gonna Internet. Thanks to a new and very good Mario Kart, kart racing is once again all the rage these days, and Dota 2 is more popular than all the cool kids in high school put together. What happens when you combine the two? It's called Dota Dash, and it looks like it works maybe a little. Apparently, however, there's…

League of Legends Getting Better, ‘More Fun’ Tutorial

Ah, the never-ending struggle to make MOBAs understandable to people whose stomachs are too weak to digest 200 lbs of raw, abstract systems. Each year companies like Valve and Riot get a little closer to workable solutions, and the effort is commendable given that they already have 172.43 trillion people playing their games. Riot's latest effort for League of Legends? So-called "Intro Bots," the main…

Kinect 2.0 Coming To PC Soon, Only Costs $200

Really quick, I want a show of hands: how many of you actually bought a Kinect 1 for PC? Anyone? At all? I mean, modders and hackers defied expectations (and warranties) to come up with some cool ideas for the little-motion-controller-that-couldn't-always, but nothing about it ever screamed, "BUY MEEEEE." So now the better, beefier Kinect 2 is about to (literally) get under PC owners' skin,…

Tomorrowind? – Skywind Public Test ‘Coming Soon’

BUT NOT SOON ENOUGH, etc. Skywind, the total rebuild of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in Skyrim's engine, continues to play sweet melodies on my heart strings. They're nostalgic tunes that lull me like the most charming of snake charmers. There's a new trailer out, and I can practically feel the Balmoran cliff racers pecking at my back, making me invent new deities just so…

Wolf Apart From Us: Wolf Among Us S1 Ends Next Week

"I should really catch up on The Wolf Among Us," I tell myself roughly once a week. "I really like that fairly tale noir world, but I'm way behind on episodes." Now, though, I'm wondering if I shouldn't just wait until next week, sprinkle some bacon bits atop a heaping bowl of popcorn, and binge play the whole season. The Wolf Among Us Episode Five:…

Witcher MOBA ‘Possible’ On PC, But Nothing Yet

You may or may not have heard, but CD Projekt has partnered with Fuero Games to make a Witcher MOBA. A mobile Witcher MOBA. It's called Witcher: Battle Arena, so you won't confuse it with Witcher: Hockey Arena or Witcher: Arena Rock. And yes, I know this world already has more than enough MOBAs, but this one looks kinda OK. So I had to ask,…

The Devil Cries: Rob Pardo Pardos Ways With Blizzard

That headline might be confusing for some of you, so allow me to elaborate: Rob Pardo's been one of Blizzard's top designers for 17 years, making him - among many other things - one of Diablo's many daddies. So when I say the devil cries, I'm mostly referring to that. I'm sure he's blowing his 666 nostrils into a +44 WIS Hanky Of Wretched Despondency…

Esports Org Divides Men & Women, Changes After Outcry

There are many ways to go about legitimizing a sport. Cleaning up your broadcast, treating players well and ensuring they have good post-pro-career options, maybe referring to players by real names instead of handles like "Balls," etc. I would say, then, that the Finnish Assembly eSports Tournament was on The Wrong Track. They decided to prohibit women from competing against men in games like Hearthstone and…

En-sob-le: Age Of Empires Online Goes Offline

Microsoft may be claiming that it's redoubled its efforts on PC, but it hasn't had much to show for it yet, Games For Windows Live is dying at an agonizing pace, and now Age of Empires Online is naught but ash and memories. Servers are now offline, never to be seen again. It's a shame because AOEO had potential despite a litany of flaws, and…

I Am Pretty Much All About This Rock Opera Game

You might remember that I reported on the Indiegogo for a rock opera videogame called Karmaflow a while back. Dumb name I know, but rock operas are kind of inherently dumb in the most spectacular, wonderful fashions possible. The crowdfunding campaign didn't quite get full funding, but it yielded enough for the team to really get into the multi-part harmony with string accompaniment that is…

Madness Is A City: HomeMake’s Crazy Mind-Swapping

HomeMake is a game being made by architecture students, which makes sense because it looks like what would happen if a builder's brain exploded, untethered itself from all limits of the physical world, and just vomited structural insanity every which way. Make no mistake, though: I mean that in a good way. Developers Franklin Cosgrove and Archgame have given life to this overwhelming cacophony of…

Murdered: Soul Suspect, Quantum Conundrum Dev Closes

Murdered: Soul Suspect was about a ghost detective trying to solve his own murder, but there's not a whole lot of mystery steaming off developer Airtight's color-drained corpse. Recent games like Quantum Conundrum - while by no means bad - weren't huge hits, there were layoffs, QC lead (and former Portal designer) Kim Swift took off, and Murdered never really built up much buzz. Times…

Searim: Diluvion Is Open World Deep Sea Exploration

"More games need to take place under water," I always say before reminding myself that the briny depths often play host to some of gaming's most annoying/irritating/blub-blub-blub-drowwwwning sequences. There really is no better place for unrelenting weirdness and instinctual fear than under the sea, though. I'm pretty sure they said exactly that in the Little Mermaid song. That in mind, I'm pleased to see games…

A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build Gets Video, Hugs (!!!)

I grew up in Texas. For reference, that means I didn't actually believe in snow until age 14. I just thought it was freezer chilled flour adults mashed into the ground once every couple years to convince us Santa was real. Thus, I am either a) not A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build's target audience at all or b) the perfect person to melt…

Beleaguered: Riot Closing League Of Legends’ Public Chat

I've not really frequented them, but I have it on good authority that League of Legends' public chat rooms are pretty nasty. Whose, you ask? Why the authority (named for a total lack of authority) that matters most in this case: Riot. They're so fed up with what public chat (read: non-private rooms; those have mostly taken its place) has become that they're yanking the…
