Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes the shooter looter to the moon photo
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes the shooter looter to the moon
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is official. The latest entry in Gearbox's shooter looter takes place between the original Borderlands and Borderlands 2, hence the Pre-Sequel moniker. The new game is based on the Borderlands 2 engine as well, and will be sticking to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

You'll be able to play as one of four new -- yet familiar -- characters as you work for Handsome Jack during his rise to power. Oh, and a majority of the game takes place on Pandora's moon. And you get jet packs. And laser guns. And ice weapons. Oh my.

The Last of Us PS4 remaster is real, according to a PlayStation Store listing (Update) photo
The Last of Us PS4 remaster is real, according to a PlayStation Store listing (Update)
by Chris Carter

[Update: Sony has confirmed The Last of Us Remastered. We can expect higher resolution character models, improved lighting, upgraded textures, and a director's commentary for all in-game cinematics featuring Neil Druckman, Troy Baker, and Ashley Johnson. This will also include the Left Behind expansion, Abandoned Territories map pack, and Reclaimed Territories pack. Various retailers are also providing various pre-order bonuses as well.]

The rumor of a Last of Us PS4 remaster has been doing around for some time now, and we seem to have full confirmation of its existence straight from the source. It's since been pulled, but Sony recently put up an advertisement for a "Day 1 Digital" title called The Last of Us: Remastered. The listing notes that it's $59.99, and for the PlayStation 4.

This is great news for those of you who haven't had a chance to play it yet, but since you can pick up the PS3 version on the cheap, we'll have to see if those "remastered" features are really worth it. Again, this is just a rumor, but it's said that the Left Behind DLC will be included.

PlayStation All-Stars gets 'Ultimate Balance Update'

Fitting that on the day of the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct, Sony attempts to remind everyone that the terribly named PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a game that exists. And it's not that it's a bad game, however...

LEGO The Hobbit now available photo
LEGO The Hobbit now available
by Conrad Zimmerman

Warner Bros. has released LEGO: The Hobbit to retailers in North America today, with a European release coming on April 11. As one might expect, new marketing materials have been released for the game, including the above launch trailer. 

There was once a part of me that was pretty disappointed when the LEGO game franchise implemented full voice acting for the characters. The non-verbal communication techniques used in earlier games always struck a chord with me, and their comic effect was exploited to great success. That said, I'm over it. The voice-over work is just great in this, and I'm not looking back anymore.

Review: The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile photo
Review: The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile
by Chris Carter

In some ways, Telltale's Wolf Among Us has topped its already stellar Walking Dead franchise. Although it doesn't feature a true post-apocalyptic setting, it still manages to feel bleak and hopeless in its own way. It also helps that almost every character is memorable, and the situations, harrowing.

The last time we saw Bigby Wolf he had just made a break in the case, and was hot on the trail of the murderer that had been plaguing Fabletown. While the follow-up isn't really as exciting as its predecessor, it still features the same likable and intriguing world -- and at this point, it's clear that the final episodes are going to be one hell of a ride.

Marvel teased for Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition

It's been long expected that Marvel and Star Wars characters would make their way to Disney Infinity and we're finally getting a tease for the former property. Captain America -- or his iconic shield, at least -- is all but ...

'Nowhere to Run' in new Wolfenstein gameplay trailer

Impressions: Luftrausers makes too much sense on the Vita

Luftrausers is perfect on the Vita in the same way Vlambeer's Super Crate Box was perfect on the Vita. It's "perfect for the Vita" because it's a great game. While either title, with their minimal arcade sensibilities "make s...

Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation photo
Review: Call of Duty: Ghosts: Devastation
by Chris Carter

Infinity Ward's DLC capabilities may not be up to snuff compared to Treyarch's, but the fact that they're trying is good enough for me. Call of Duty: Ghost's Onslaught DLC was a major step up in quality when compared to their prior milquetoast map packs, and somehow they've even managed to top Michael Meyer's cameo with the goddamn Predator.

Not all of the maps are created equal, but another strong Extinction mission and the Predator gimmick help elevate the package considerably.

This is what it's like to play as the Predator in the new Call of Duty DLC photo
This is what it's like to play as the Predator in the new Call of Duty DLC
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation is now out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $14.99. You get four new multiplayer maps, a new gun, a new chapter in the Extinction co-op mode, and most important of all, you can play as the goddamn Predator.

Like the Michael Myers transformation, you can become the Predator from the field orders stuff and you truly embody the Predator here. You get its thermal vision, invisibility, the claw, and even the shoulder mounted gun too. And when you're killed you can blow yourself up, which kills EVERYBODY! You even do the evil laugh!

I'm starting to regret that I gave up on Ghosts' multiplayer shortly after launch now.
