The first details and screenshots to the upcoming sequel of last year’s Dead Island have surfaced over at OXM. From the sounds of things, the game picks right after the first iteration, following the same four characters.

How did I miss this one? Last week those sly dogs over at Gearbox Studios released a browser-based, “old-school” 16-bit version of Borderlands.

Earlier this week, there was a rumored Rock Band DLC leak revealed by our friends over at RockBandAide, but it looks like Harmonix is giving us a swerve by releasing a totally different pack than we thought.

Now Theatrhythm has gone and done it again. Square Enix announced today [...]

The rumors have been around, but today Gearbox made it official. Borderlands 2 will be getting four pieces of DLC and they can be pre-purchased with a season pass. Each DLC will be priced at $9.99 and the season pass gets a 25% discount of $29.99. The DLC is specifically referred to as “campaign add-ons,” so hopefully we don’t get another Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. We are promised new areas, adventures, and enemies, [...]
