The DTOID Show: GTA V, TES Online, & Goodbye MS Points!
by Tara Long

Greetings, internet citizens! Max was out of the office today, so I grabbed Techfeed's Scott Bromley (and fellow host of The Comedy Button) to chat with me about GTA V's Collector's Edition, the rumored-but-not-yet-announced Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition, the phasing out of MS Points, and whether or not you'll be required to use magic in The Elder Scrolls Online. We've also got details on the must-see panels and parties of PAX Prime 2013, so if you plan on attending this year - listen up!

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 ...

by Jim Sterling

In the thrilling conclusion to a rubbish playthrough of a boring campaign, the noble Jim Sterling fights his way through Stasis Interrupted, fighting more Weyland Yutani mercs, having a close encounter with an alien Queen, and giving up on the last bit because it's dumb.

It was going on far too long anyway.

Lisbeth is dead, and we continue our boring journey through space with ... some other person!

Witness the terror of aliens that stand around waiting to die. Be amazed by Hicks' magic pants! Feel shock at the comprehension of Weyland-Yutani's Danger Ammo!

Hell yeah, I finally gets a gun! After the crawling and dawdling of the first part of Stasis Interrupted, the next slice of Aliens: Colonial Marines action actually gets some action!

Thanks for all the watching and feedback on part one! People are really digging this, which is great. Expect more!

Now Bloody Playing: Aliens: Stasis Interrupted

I woke up slightly before 5am this morning and thought to myself, "You know what the world needs? Another man with an annoying voice talking to himself while playing videogames on the Internet." So it is that I sold out and attempted a "Let's Play" thing.

Of course, there is a special reason, because you get to watch me face my old nemesis, Aliens: Colonial Marines. I'll be taking you on an adventure with the Stasis Interrupted DLC over the next few days, suffering a galaxy of bad animations and clipping so you don't have to. 

Enjoy!

Aliens: Colonial Marines 'Stasis Interrupted' out now

One of the dumbest elements of Aliens: Colonial Marines was the sudden appearance of Corporal Hicks, a move that undid the canon of the movies for no real reason other than the desperate need for a recognizable character. Hic...

According to our friends at Tomopop, Square Enix is working on Aliens: Colonial Marines action figures. Now, while it might be surprising that the critically mauled game is getting toys (of the Spitter and Lurker aliens), the...

When I started cutting my teeth into Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep, it came with a satisfying somberness, thinking it to be the end to a largely enjoyable journey. It would seem though, that it's not ove...
