Australian Classification Board listing points to Borderlands collection on current generation consoles

It seems like every post about Borderlands has the same comments in it: a scathing remark about Aliens: Colonial Marines, a proclamation to wait for the Game of the Year Edition, and a prediction that 2K and Gearbox will...

Let's look at some cool behind-the-scenes pictures of Doom

In celebration of Doom's 21st birthday, Brett shared a personal anecdote about how the iconic game came into his life at an early age and refused to leave. He didn't include Doomguy's midriff in the article, much to my chagri...

Not-so-final stand: There's more Battlefield 4 DLC on the way

It looked like Battlefield 4 was going to go out on a relative high note with the Final Stand DLC, but when it comes to naming in this industry, "final" doesn't have to mean the end. "With [Final Stand] released, we hope and ...

Review in Progress: Destiny: The Dark Below photo
Review in Progress: Destiny: The Dark Below
by Chris Carter

Destiny was released earlier this year, and like many hyped games, it failed to deliver on its promises. The good news? It was still a well crafted shooter, and practically everything involving the actual gameplay was excellent. In fact, I find it hard to go back to other shooters now -- that's how good Destiny feels.

Unfortunately, the folks over at Bungie made a number of design choices that prevent players from consistently having fun. There was also backpedaling over the past few months -- some of which led to changes to the raid -- that brought even more glitches alongside of the update.

So far in my testing, The Dark Below plays out similarly. The core of the game is still intact, but there's a lot of weird choices that prevent it from reaching its potential.

343 Industries is caught in a tough place when it comes to trying to fix Halo: The Master Chief Collection's broken multiplayer component. It obviously wants to roll out updates as quickly as possible. But, it also wants ever...

Warface is noface, to be displaced and not replaced on the Xbox 360 marketplace

Crytek hasn't been doing so hot critically lately, with the recent releases of Ryse and Warface. I would have completely forgotten that the latter game had existed if it weren't for the ridiculous name, which immediately...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's second piece of DLC is out December 16

2K Games announced today the second DLC pack for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and as with the first pack, it is commendable in some ways but disappointing in others. In The Holodome Onslaught, Axton and Gaige join the crew in...

Evolve is about more than just monster hunting photo
Evolve is about more than just monster hunting
by Kyle MacGregor

"Hopefully, nobody has any questions about Hunt," Turtle Rock co-founder Chris Ashton said, his eyes darting around a cloistered room flush with press. "We've been talking about that forever!"

Over the past several months, the humble, long-bearded design director has ceaselessly detailed this one fragment of the experience, holding his tongue about just about every other facet of the asymmetric game of pursuit. In that moment you could see it on his face, a shy glimmer of excitement to, at long last, reveal something new.

If you see this armor in Call of Duty, you're gonna die

Sledgehammer's making sure that the top Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare players stick out like a sore thumb. That way, you'll be slightly consoled when you have the worst game of your life. Or, you won't feel guilty when ...

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...

Destiny's new DLC is 'sexy' 'awesome' 'bacon' says horrible trailer

"Boom, daddy's home." "Call me when you level up, bro" "This is like a-Sasquatch-and-a-unicorn-had-a-baby exotic." Please stick to over serious trailers. I've made a point to ignore Destiny because I know it ain't ...

Destiny expansion video teases what players will find in The Dark Below
