UK Charts: Dishonored 2, XCOM 7, Scunthorpe United 0

The UK game retail charts are about as relevant to PC gaming - and indeed gaming as a whole - as Mars Bars are to the red planet, knickers are to a fish or kindness is to the Murdoch dynasty. Nonethless, I feel compelled to mention this week's, purely because they suggest that even the most mainstream field of games isn't as resistent to new…

Captain Scarlett DLC For Borderlands 2 Lands Oct 16th

You can imagine my disappointment when I heard about this. Not the unparalleled mega-classic of science fiction drama Captain Scarlet, featuring the indestructible captain of the near future, but Captain Scarlett (pictured above), featuring some kind of hook-handed lady buccaneer of the wastes. Oh well, it might still be an entertaining expansion, what with it being hi-tech happenings in the Borderlands 2 world and all.…

PreLC: Borderlands 2 Mecromancer Out Early

If you like games about shooting and collecting and shooting and collecting and shooting and collecting and being yelled at all the while, you'll be glad to hear that the first major DLC for Borderlands 2 has been released a week earlier than planned. Gaige The Mechromancer is a new playable class/character for the game, and the one who offers the vaguely notorious newbie player-orientated…

Season’s Bleatings: Borderlands 2 DLC

I've barely begun to scratch the surface of Pandora and I'll never actually shoot the handsome off Handsome Jack's face. I like finding weird guns but actually shooting my way through the missions feels like sticking my head into a beehive. BUZZ BUZZ BUZZZZ, go the bees, and even if I manage to eat some honey while my face is being perforated, I'm still going…

Russian Borderlands 2 Is All Fixed

Yesterday we reported how gamers in Russia and bordering countries had received a peculiar version of Borderlands 2. It was in Russian only, and region locked so it was not possible to play with people from other countries. That was strange enough, but more odd was that this was also being distributed to non-Russian-speaking former USSR nations, which didn't much impress people. The good news…

Borderlands 2 Is Allowed To Launch Now

Not because I've given it permission, mind you. No, no - I don't possess that kind of power. I can, however, pave the way for the final domino in the┬ápromotional procession - that most mighty of Silver Surfers: the launch trailer. Without it, the delicate videogame hype ecosystem would crumble, and we'd have no way of knowing that our games were coming out tomorrow, or…

Molywho? Borderlands 2’s Curious Online Game

Peter Molyneux is building a cube that contains Powermonger 2*. Tap away to win! In what I assume is an intentional act of satirical imitation, 2K send word of a promotional webgame that bestows Borderlands 2 prizes on players. Instead of a cube, Mount Jackmore has players click on a sculpture of Handsome Jack's head,which is divided into sections, each of which will turn gold…

Decisions, Decisions: Borderlands 2 Skill Trees In Full

At first glance, you wouldn't expect a big loud shooty bang bang game such as Borderlands 2 to be the type who wears a pocket protector and hangs around for the after school mathlete competitions, and yet here it is, polishing up its statistics term paper. The Borderlands 2 character class skill tree is available online for your perusal, allowing you first to see exactly…

Sir Hammerlock Takes Stock: Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 looks as barking mad as Cujo strapped to a chainsaw-juggling Salvador Dali in zero gravity and the latest video, a seven minute introduction to the game narrated by machinated manly man Sir Hammerlock, is quite deranged. Through all the mischief and mayhem there's a remarkably decent outline of the game's actual features, which is actually more surprising than the gun that further weaponises…

Cute: Borderlands 2D

Yes, the 2D demake thing has been done many, many times before, and yeah, retro-nostalgia-mania is currently sweeping the planet so thoroughly that the Louvre has recently undertaken a project to update all its most priceless pieces of artwork with Instagram filters, but damn it, I sort of like this silly little 2D version of Borderlands 2. I mean, it's called "The Border Lands." That…

87 Bazillion New Clips Of Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 will have guns. Of all the things in the entire universe I'd be absolutely, un-hesitantly comfortable staking my life on, that'd rank only behind "Texas is warm" and "Borderlands 2 will have lands." Gearbox, though, wants to set its more-than-87-bazillion guns apart from the rest of the industry's┬ácomparatively tasteful collection of 63 trillion, so it's attempting to infuse real personality into brands this…

You Don’t Know (Handsome) Jack: Borderlands 2’s Biggie

There's been some recent awkwardness out of the Borderlands 2 camp, but the game proper is still looking quite handsome. You will not, however, see it getting all high and mighty about its rugged Wild Wild Space West charms - largely because it is an inanimate object only capable of communicating through Wimowehs and dubstep. Its main villain, on the other hand, puts the word…

Borderlands 2’s Best Friends Forever Furore

Here's today's scandal, then. The Mechromancer, a post-release DLC character for Borderlands 2 has been revealed, and one of her skill trees is aimed at making the game more accessible to people who don't play shooters. Officially, this set of abilities is called 'Best Friends Forever', and includes skills such as missed shots having a chance to auto-ricochet into their intended targets - i.e. allowing…

Borderlands 2 Trailer Employs “Wimoweh” Effect

The latest Borderlands 2 trailer is very silly. It features "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as it shows off wildlife and ultraviolence, together as intended on the surface of an alien planet. And is that an observatory the size of the moon/in the moon? We're pretty excited about this, frankly. I had an excellent time when I played it a couple of months back, and it…
