Now Bloody Playing: Aliens: Stasis Interrupted photo
Now Bloody Playing: Aliens: Stasis Interrupted
by Jim Sterling

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...

More Borderlands 2 DLC on the way

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...

Meet Borderlands 2's Krieg, he drives the poop train

Krieg, Borderlands 2's newest downloadable character, has some sort of odd affliction. Somewhere between his brain and his mouth, his intended words get replaced by phrases of utter insanity. At least he lives up to his...

Hands-on with Borderlands 2's take on Dungeons & Dragons
by Abel Girmay

It's been a hell of ride, with a fair share of high and low points, but the Borderlands 2 season of content is finally at an end. As the last campaign downloadable content for Borderlands 2, there's a considerable amount of pressure for Tiny Tina's: Assault on Dragon Keep to deliver big.

"Big" certainly seems to be the keyword here, as Dragon Keep crams a substantial amount of content when compared to the last few campaign packs.

Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design photo
Gearbox artist slams Dragon's Crown character design
by Jim Sterling

The Dragon's Crown "thing" shows no sign of stopping, with vehement and sometimes venomous opinions flying this way and that. To bring you up to speed, Vanillaware's upcoming brawler features a big-boobed Sorceress, the design of which is causing a ruckus. 

Now an artist from a completely different studio is in the mix, Gearbox environmental artist Shaylyn Hamm. To say she's not impressed by George Kamitani's mammary magician is putting it lightly. 

"I want to see more women getting interested in games and game development, but stuff like this only serves to further cement the idea that you're stepping into a male hobby rather than something that is more inclusive," she wrote on The Escapist's forums

"Also, this is the first time I've seen that character and holy shit, ahahahahahaha. That's actually something that made its way into a basically finished video game, fucking lol! Some juvenile delinquent kid in my 5th grade class used to draw girls that looked like that (only without the creepy blank, featureless samefaces and wizard hats), and I think he was actually better at it. I also think he's in jail now. This is amazing."
