You know you’ve all wanted to be one of the hundreds of exes Miss Moxxie has racked up in Borderlands 2. Well today is your chance. With new SHiFT codes from Gearbox you get a new skin to make your character the prettiest of pink, and Moxxi’s Critical Heart Breaker shotgun which will level up to whatever level you are when you redeem the code. But act fast, they’re only good [...]
After a round of layoffs and a failed Kickstarter project, things weren’t looking rosy for Supreme Commander developer Gas Powered Games at all. In fact, it wouldn’t be unfair to say that those guys were probably staring at the bottom of their pints a little more wistfully than they have done in recent times. A good thing then that seemingly out of nowhere, World of Tanks developer Wargaming.net has said [...]
EA and Mythic have released the first teaser trailer for their forthcoming F2P Ultima title, Ultima Forever. In further news, the iOS version of the game is apparently furthest into development and as such, will be released on those platforms first.

I was ecstatic about Aliens: Colonial Marines. It was my most anticipated shooter of this year, even above BioShock Infinite. Yeah. That’s how excited I was about Colonial Marines.

And it won’t be developed by previous IP custodians Rocksteady Studios if the article on VG247 is to be believed. Kaboom etc. You can see the whole investor call here, via Yahoo!, but the lines you want to focus on are the ones spat out by Time Warner’s CFO John K. [...]
With the release of their Tomb Raider reboot looming large (it went gold last week ahead of its release next month) Square-Enix have today released an over eleven-minute gameplay trailer for the game showing off the combat tactics that Lara can use as well as an impressive array of firearms that the titular heroine has at her disposal. Its set against the backdrop of an escape from monastery and it goes without [...]
VaultCast? What the hell is that?? Let me share the knowledge. The SML VaultCast is a podcast that I have started up with my friends Tim Robinson and Jason “Boge” Bogert. It will be a weekly release with unique themes and general fun times for all. The SML stands for Small, Medium, and Large, because when you place Tim, Boge, and myself next to each other, those are our sizes. [...]
InXile Entertainment have put their mouth where their money is and have delivered unto us the very first alpha gameplay video of post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2. We’ve got it for you after the break and if you’re even in the slightest bit disillusioned with how RPG’s are made/spat-out/regurgitated these days, you’re going to want to see this.
Oh hey, that rhymes! A bit. Anyhow ignore my idle prattle; the real news here is that Square-Enix created a web domain registration on the 7th of Febraury for a game/thing called “War of Nosgoth“.
