Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock Versus the Son of Crawmerax

04-29-2014

After one of the longest tails for a game on the last-generation consoles, Borderlands 2's DLC has finally come to an end. The fifth and final Headhunter pack is out, and it sends the Vault Hunters on vacation to the tropical...

Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart

04-22-2014

So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise...

Borderlands 2: Mad Moxxi and the Wedding Day Massacre

02-11-2014

Another holiday is upon us, which means another Borderlands 2 Headhunter pack. Previously, we celebrated Halloween with T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest, Thanksgiving with The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler, and Chr...

Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation

12-31-2013

I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins. Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was, but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series. Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.

Borderlands 2: How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day

12-23-2013

Borderlands 2 has had quite the long tail of content for a noncompetitive first-person shooter. Since its release a bit over a year ago, it has seen two additional characters, four story DLC packs, two level cap increases, wi...

BandFuse: Rock Legends

11-29-2013

My family is very musically inclined. My father sings, and my mother sings and plays guitar. My wife's family is also musical; playing piano, guitar, drums, etc. between her, her brother, father, aunt, and so on. When I was a...

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...

Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman: Assault on Arkham is an upcoming direct-to-video animated film that serves as the direct sequel to Batman: Arkham Origins. Expect more not-so-zany adventures with the Riddler and Joker and the debut of the Suicide Sq...

Borderlands 2: T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest

10-22-2013

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 pr...

Brothers - a Tale of Two Sons

08-07-2013

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons just came out for Xbox Live Arcade to little marketing and fanfare this past week. We're here to remind you that's it pretty great though, and something worth adding to your XBLA collection. Or, ...

Borderlands 2: Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep

06-25-2013

I'd all but forgotten about Borderlands 2 at this point. My wife and I stopped playing long ago, half of our season passes never explored. And yet, it's allure remains strangely potent upon viewing this latest short-for...

BattleBlock Theater

04-03-2013

BattleBlock Theater is a great platformer (especially when played cooperatively), and now it's free on Games with Gold on the Xbox 360. Gotham City Imposters is out, and BattleBlock is in, with all its "buckle your ...

Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt

01-23-2013

It’s a good thing that Borderlands 2 doesn’t often touch on real-world culture over the course of its kitschy, ostentatious sci-fi romp -- the times where it does have tended to be low points. I was disappointed t...

Borderlands 2: Mr. Torgue's Campaing of Carnage

11-30-2012

The best downloadable content, in my experience, serves as a low-risk workshop to spitball and prototype new ideas. Sometimes those ideas pop up later in, say, sequels: it’s impossible to get from Dragon Age: Origins to...

Borderlands 2: Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty

10-16-2012

Borderlands 2's first DLC, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, extends the original game's love for having as many Easter eggs as possible. The latest (I'd argue greatest), discovery is that there is a Big Daddy na...

Battleship

Your name is Hasbro and you own the rights to a well-known board game, centered about guessing where the opponent's ships are. What do you do? Naturally, you let Universal turn it into a blockbuster marketed to look like Mich...

Birds of Steel

Combat flight simulators, like real-time strategy games, are a resilient breed which has always struggled to find its place on consoles. A mouse and keyboard control scheme is almost always preferred over a gamepad when it co...

Blades of Time

If you thought the intense Blades of Time saga was over just because we finally got a copy and were able to review it, think again. In astounding news, it seems that an honest-to-God Limited Edition version is on its way to P...

Binary Domain

Batman: Arkham City

Across the Arkham titles, the developers have included at least two incredibly well-hidden easter eggs. Who could forget the one in Arkham Asylum that was so stashed away that Rocksteady itself had to reveal i...

Blocks that Matter

There is a trend with a lot of modern puzzle games and platformers to have hectic gameplay, and to punch you in the balls while you play. This might seem awful to some, but most gamers gladly accept this extra challenge. The ...
