Don't worry, that's the only time I'll do that with the title. Couldn't resist. I miss my old name and avatar :( No regrets at all though, just a little melancholy. Goodbye you handsome devil. May Chist carry on the legacy of...
Unlock new "adventurers" from iconic Final Fantasy character designer Yoshitaka Amano and a new scenario from Yasumi Matsuno, designer of Final Fantasy XII. Also, Terra Battle received the highly anticipated online co-op mode update that allows players to work together to clear stages and adds summons to the battlefield.
Today, EA announced that the Battlefield Hardline open beta will begin February 3 and end on February 8.
If you haven't had a chance to play EA's version of cops and robbers, now is this time. Well, technically February is t...
Samurai Gunn is great. It's a mainstay in my living room, especially with the backwards compatible PS1 taking a dive (no more convenient Bushido Blade). I also gave it a 2014 game of the year award even though...
Trendy Entertainment has already bestowed Dungeon Defenders II upon its most invested fans. In fact, they've had it for more than a month now. "Invested" is the only way to describe those people -- both financially and mentally -- as that's what it takes to pay an Early Access fee for a game that will eventually be free-to-play.
But, those same fans get the privilege of seeing Dungeon Defenders II along as it's molded through the development cycle, and better yet, they'll get to help shape it too. Early adopters are "rewarded" with influence points that allow them to vote on future game features. It's unknown how far their reach has extended thus far, but someone's doing something right with Dungeon Defenders II.
I'm filing this one under "You'd be stupid not to cover it, Jordan."
Lovesickis a simple, physics-driven two-player game for PC and Mac in which a bride and groom explode out of both ends after eating undercooked shrimp. Classic mistake. The player who lands the most "projectiles" in the toilet is deemed victorious. But really, whoever wins, we lose.
I refuse to spoil the game's fabulous song selection, but know that it's on point.
It's a fairly light week for games this week, due mostly to the fact that both MAGFest and PAX South are happening as you read this. To all the Dtoiders attending these wonderful events, have an absolutely awesome time. For those of us not attending, well, we'll have our own damn fun, won't we?!

Welcome to Team Fortress 2sdays. It looks like your old pal Chilly (that's me) is gonna be the next victim guest on the always popular Q&A show, Between 2Fort, hosted by the one and only Shadow. Now, I don't want to steal any of Shadow's thunder, so I'll let him give all the juicy details:
It's the perfect fit. Broforce is cheesy, over the top 80s action films distilled into a shooter, a sort of hyperactive Contra. Meanwhile, Aliens is a cheesy 80s action film far removed from Alien's brilliance. Keep...
Most high-end special editions of games come with the same sort of tchotchkes -- maybe a figurine, an art book -- that sort of stuff. 2K is raising the bar when it comes to limited editions, both in terms of content and pric...
Rumors have circulated for months that Gearbox Software's Borderlands would be the recipient of some sort of upgraded port to current consoles. In fact, speculation was so strong that it was more a matter of what titles would be bundled together, as opposed to wondering if the collection existed at all.
2K Games broke the shroud of mystery today by revealing Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. The package, which is a play on main antagonist Handsome Jack's name, bundles Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequelalong with all downloadable content ever released for both games. The Handsome Collection will be available on PS4 and Xbox One on March 24 in North America and March 27 in other regions, and it'll retail for $59.99.
Maybe the best news to come out of this announcement is that those that have played one or both titles before don't have to worry about losing their established characters. The Handsome Collection will feature a cross-save system meaning that characters and Badass Rank can be carried over from previous-gen consoles. It's important to note that this only works within the same console family (i.e. Xbox 360 to Xbox One). This bundle will also support four-player local co-op in the event that you want to have a meeting of Vault Hunters all on one screen.
It may not be the first foray onto new consoles that Borderlands fans necessarily wanted, but it's definitely the one that was expected. The Handsome Collection is yet another clear indicator of the franchise's importance to 2K. But, we'll have to wait a bit longer to hear of the next original installment on Pandora.
