Telltale, Gearbox team up for Tales from the Borderlands

For the first reveal of this year's VGX, a Telltale logo showed up on a vending machine, with very Telltale-esque cel-shading. Not so Telltale was the music, which was clearly a Borderlands guitar riff. Yep, Telltale is maki...

Borderlands 2 Christmas customizations shown in video

Review: Borderlands 2: Ravenous Wattle Gobbler
by Darren Nakamura

Last month, the first Headhunter DLC pack for Borderlands 2 released, celebrating Halloween with T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest. The Headhunter series aims to be quick and inexpensive, offering a couple of holiday-themed missions for just a few dollars apiece.

Next in the series is the Thanksgiving flavored content, with a title as stuffed as our stomachs will be in two days: The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler. While it follows the same general format as the previous entry, Wattle Gobbler has a bit more of the signature Borderlands charm, which benefits it in the end.

Review: Borderlands 2: T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest
by Darren Nakamura

Borderlands 2's huge array of downloadable content has inarguably had its ups and downs. At its worst, we have seen simple cosmetic additions like new outfit colors and heads (which seem doubly silly considering the game's predominantly first-person perspective). At its best, we've experienced a truly heartfelt story inside of a substantial campaign addition, with a plethora of new enemies to fight in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep.

The new Headhunter series of DLC aims to be something in between those two extremes. Rather than providing a substantial set of side story missions across several locales, the Headhunter content intends to be more bite-sized, with a price to match. T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest is Halloween-themed, so perhaps "fun-sized" is the more apt adjective to use, and while shooting things in the face while numbers fly out is as fun as it has ever been, there really isn't much new to find here.

Jimquisition: Reasons To Pass On Season Passes
by Jim Sterling

You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass.

Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things.

It's here! It's finally here! Pokemon X and Y is out this week for the 3DS and it's pretty much going to be the only thing anyone talks about leading up to the next-gen consoles. Oh, Beyond: Two Souls is also out this week. It has emotions and stuff. You like emotions, right?

Other biggies this week are two repacked re-releases: Borderlands 2 and Dishonored Game of the Year Editions. Oh, videogame industry. No wonder gamers love Steam sales so much.
