To any Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel players out there: I have dibs on Athena photo
To any Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel players out there: I have dibs on Athena
by Darren Nakamura

Two years ago, Chris, Tara, Conrad, and Andy each called dibs on a Vault Hunter for Borderlands 2 before I ever could, and so I was never able to play it. All I could do was sit there looking at my copy, wishing I had called dibs first. I will not make that same mistake twice.

I have dibs on Athena. Simply put, Athena is the best. Don't worry, there are three other perfectly okay Vault Hunters for you to choose from. You should be all right, I guess. Anyway, here's why Athena is the best and I call dibs on her.

It's going to take so long to unlock every Achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection

After looking over IGN's full list of Achievements in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, yeah, I won't be earning all 4,000 (!) Gamerscore points. Hell, I knew that after reading the literal first Achievement description: "Co...

That other Evolve alpha is coming Halloween weekend

The hype for Evolve has died down for a bit. After tons of magazine covers, headline stories, previews, and hype for the alpha, we saw quite a lot of the game -- but ever since the delay, all has been quiet on the 2K fro...

DICE: Battlefield 4's bad launch 'absolutely' damaged trust

I think it's nice that we've finally managed to hold EA accountable to something. Can its ripoff sports game releases be next? Well, I guess it's been DICE falling on the sword and profusely apologizing more than EA.&nbs...

Review: Heavy Bullets photo
Review: Heavy Bullets
by Caitlin Cooke

The security system in Highrise Hunting Grounds has gone rogue, and you’ve been sent to shut down the mainframe. With only six initial bullets, you must fight your way through eight levels of neon jungle rife with lethal spiders, turrets, bush worms, and feisty cat-balls.

It’s a good thing your bullets bounce back, because you’ll need them.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies hits Steam

This trailer, haha. Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies would get a trailer like this. After a short beta, the free-to-play game is out now on Steam. It's like Counter-Strike 1.6 with a bunch of crazy, cobbled-together modes and, ...

This is what happens when you harpoon a bear in Far Cry 4

Here I was all prepared to say that I didn't feel like I'd be missing much by not pre-ordering Far Cry 4 and then they go and harpoon a bear. It's not fair, damn it. It's just not fair! Pre-orders also come with three exclusive missions featuring Hurk, who I'm only now learning was a character in Far Cry 3, too (in a DLC pack). Huh. He seems ... annoying. That harpoon gun, though.

Ten minutes of Claptrap ruining everything in this Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel video

Back when I spent way too much time playing with the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel interactive skill trees, I admitted that I was not really sure what to do with Claptrap's highly random play style. This video shows off some o...

Tigers are the most badass weapon in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 has its share of weapons that look fun to use. Machine guns? Sure, they're tried-and-true and will get the job done. Mortars? Maybe a bit of overkill, but at least you don't have to get dirty. Tigers? Wait, wh...

Destiny's loot is now way less aggravating

Here we go. The patch that fixes -- or, at least improves -- how loot works in Destiny. Chris already detailed the patch, which is out now, at length. But the short of it is that Legendary (purple) engrams will now always awa...
