Tiny Tina demonstrates the power of fantasy

I'd all but forgotten about Borderlands 2 at this point. My wife and I stopped playing long ago, half of our season passes never explored. And yet, it's allure remains strangely potent upon viewing this latest short-for...

Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition on the horizon

Those of you who have remained strong and resisted Borderlands 2 knowing full well that 2K and Gearbox Software would eventually put out a "game of the year" version shouldn't have to wait all that much longer. At least, the ...

New releases: Fight in the snow in Company of Heroes 2 photo
New releases: Fight in the snow in Company of Heroes 2
by Fraser Brown

This week sees the return of Relic's superb World War 2 strategy series, Company of Heroes, with the bloody conflict in the Eastern Front being presented in a brand new engine. Though it adds little more than extreme weather and a new, explosive campaign to the tried and tested formula, it's really rather splendid.

On top of this, the Biker action game, Ride to Hell: Retribution finally drops, after a bit of a delay; the merc with the mouth, Deadpool, gets his very own game; Dark leaps out of the shadows with a smattering of stealth and vampire action; and that really rather awful looking Spartacus Legends game is a thing.

Anything tempting you this week?

Hands-on with Borderlands 2's take on Dungeons & Dragons photo
Hands-on with Borderlands 2's take on Dungeons & Dragons
by Abel Girmay

It's been a hell of ride, with a fair share of high and low points, but the Borderlands 2 season of content is finally at an end. As the last campaign downloadable content for Borderlands 2, there's a considerable amount of pressure for Tiny Tina's: Assault on Dragon Keep to deliver big.

"Big" certainly seems to be the keyword here, as Dragon Keep crams a substantial amount of content when compared to the last few campaign packs.

Borderlands 2: Hands-on with Krieg the Psycho Bandit

Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design photo
Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design
by Jim Sterling

The Dragon's Crown "thing" shows no sign of stopping, with vehement and sometimes venomous opinions flying this way and that. To bring you up to speed, Vanillaware's upcoming brawler features a big-boobed Sorceress, the design of which is causing a ruckus. 

Now an artist from a completely different studio is in the mix, Gearbox environmental artist Shaylyn Hamm. To say she's not impressed by George Kamitani's mammary magician is putting it lightly. 

"I want to see more women getting interested in games and game development, but stuff like this only serves to further cement the idea that you're stepping into a male hobby rather than something that is more inclusive," she wrote on The Escapist's forums

"Also, this is the first time I've seen that character and holy shit, ahahahahahaha. That's actually something that made its way into a basically finished video game, fucking lol! Some juvenile delinquent kid in my 5th grade class used to draw girls that looked like that (only without the creepy blank, featureless samefaces and wizard hats), and I think he was actually better at it. I also think he's in jail now. This is amazing."

HAWP: How Anthony Burch wrote Borderlands 2

Anthony Burch was very lucky to get hired by Gearbox to work on Borderlands 2. But the road to writing a critically acclaimed game script would only get harder from there. In this very special episode of Hey Ash, Whatcha Pla...
