Burial at Sea video reintroduces some familiar faces

It's not often that I post a video and recommend that nobody actually watch it, but here we are. Just like the preview clip from two weeks ago, this Burial at Sea: Episode Two behind-the-scenes video is full of spoilers...

Evolve impressions: How did we feel about the Kangaroos?
by Max Scoville

A couple of weeks ago, Hamza and I got a chance to screw around in Turtle Rock and 2K's Evolve. Hamza wrote up his thoughts on the game right here, and I got to interview one of the developers about the game.

But how did Hamza and I really feel? Well, watch the dang video.

Review: Borderlands 2: Wedding Day Massacre photo
Review: Borderlands 2: Wedding Day Massacre
by Darren Nakamura

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 Christmas with How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day. This time around, Mad Moxxi teaches us a thing or two about love with the Wedding Day Massacre, just in time for Valentine's Day.

The basic idea here is largely the same: for a few dollars you get one new area, two new missions, an easter egg or two, and new cosmetic customization options for your preferred Vault Hunter. Among those constants throughout the Headhunter series, the most notable variables in play are the choice of which characters to focus on and the dialogue and interactions resulting from that choice. For Wedding Day Massacre, Gearbox chose wisely.

Preview: It's four versus one in Turtle Rock's Evolve
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Turtle Rock is best known for creating the Left 4 Dead franchise. The series was a big hit for Valve, and after a lot of tribulation over the years -- everything from getting acquired, shut down, reformed, and losing their last publisher -- the studio is back in partnership with 2K Games to offer another engaging cooperative experience in the form of Evolve

Evolve sees four players taking on the role of human hunters, while another player is in control of a giant alien beast that gets stronger over the course of the match. This isn't going to just be a straight up shooter, as teamwork and skills are key to winning a match.

NEW PS Vita coming this spring to North America photo
NEW PS Vita coming this spring to North America
by Dale North

The new PlayStation Vita will be launched this spring, coming in a Borderlands 2 bundle. This was confirmed today at a PlayStation media event in Santa Monica. It will include the game with six DLC packs (Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Psycho Character Class, Mechromancer Character Class, Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 1 and the Collector’s Edition Pack.), an 8GB PS Vita memory card, and will all retail for $199.99.

For this new model, battery life is now 4-6 hours for gaming, and a new LCD screen replaces the current version's OLED one. Its shape has changed a bit -- it's more rounded and a bit more portable.

It's the same one we saw released in Japan last year, and Europe earlier this year. 

Yay?

First look at Turtle Rock's new FPS Evolve

Coming from the people who worked on Left 4 Dead, Evolve sounds promising as a multiplayer concept. We've heard about the game's first creature, Goliath (as shown above), who can evolve to grow in size and must take on four h...

Review: Borderlands 2: How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day
by Darren Nakamura

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, widespread release of previously retailer-exclusive content, dozens of new cosmetic customization options, and most recently, the series of holiday-themed Headhunter missions.

Like T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest and The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler, How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day takes place in a single new area and consists of only a couple of missions. Where Bloody Harvest was centered around Halloween and Wattle Gobbler focused on Thanksgiving, Mercenary Day features a Christmas theme. With it comes a very Borderlands take on snowmen, carols, and the spirit of the season.

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: XCOM: Enemy Within photo
Review: XCOM: Enemy Within
by Chris Carter

XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of my favorite games of 2012. As a fan of the original franchise back in the '90s, I felt like it did an excellent job of not only re-introducing the once-beloved franchise back into the fold for newcomers, but also providing veterans with a fulfilling strategy experience. Developer Firaxis is now revisiting the XCOM universe with Enemy Within, a new expansion pack set to augment the original game.

Leaping back in, I immediately jumped at the prospect of creating an Exosquad-esque mech soldier with the new Within content. I named him Duke Nukem, gave him a blonde buzz cut, and pumped tons of credits into his loadout -- I even had a brief vision of completing the game with him, sticking through the thick and thin. Then he promptly died on the very next level.

Yep, this is still XCOM alright, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Review: BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode One photo
Review: BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode One
by Chris Carter

BioShock Infinite was one of the most polarizing releases in recent memory among the gaming community. While a number of critics lauded it as an apex for Irrational, many fans were left feeling underwhelmed by certain facets of the design, some of which felt like a regression for the franchise.

I really enjoyed Infinite myself, but I'm also fully willing to admit that there were a number of design flaws that detracted from the experience. Some of those issues are directly addressed in Burial at Sea, but in the process, others are created. Uh oh!
