Borderlands: Claptastic Voyage screenshots, we got 'em

The first and only big story piece of downloadable content released for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel earlier this week, and I just finished playing through it. As usual, I took a bunch of screenshots as I played through. Fair ...

What if videogame consoles were Transformers? photo
What if videogame consoles were Transformers?
by Mike Cosimano

This isn't clickbait. This isn't some article cashing in on hypothetical fan art of an Xbox turning into Megatron or a post about those awesome Mega Drive/PlayStation Transformers. This is my life, you fools. I've spent time pouring over this existential question. The world needs to know: what if videogame consoles were Transformers? Here are the Transformers they would be, mostly framed through the IDW comics because those are rad.

You're welcome.

Cowboy Erron Black revealed for Mortal Kombat X

Erron Black is the hot new Clint Eastwood-like character revealed in the above trailer for Mortal Kombat X. He's like a cooler gun-slinging version of Stryker, the silly cop character from earlier Mortal Kombat games. So when do we get to see Nightwolf appropriately kill Erron Black? Because that needs to happen stat, you hear me Netherrealm Studios!?

That free Fast & Furious expansion for Forza Horizon 2 is out today photo
That free Fast & Furious expansion for Forza Horizon 2 is out today
by Jordan Devore

More free stuff to download on Xbox One and Xbox 360 assuming you get around to nabbing Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious before April 10, at which point the standalone expansion becomes $10. As we said previously, Ludacris is in this so, yeah. Cool.

I'm a couple films behind in the Fast & Furious series, but Furious 7 looks like more dumb fun and the ten cars you'll acquire in this game are based on the new movie. One of the vehicles is an "armored 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited." Hah. Consider that the litmus test.

There's said to be around six to eight hours of gameplay. Good chunk of game, then. Grab it here.

How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound? photo
How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound?
by Brett Makedonski

We're at that point in the month where it's time to start thinking about which adorable kitten is waiting to replace that other adorable kitten when you flip your calendar, and less importantly, what Xbox's Games with Gold titles will be. You can probably sneak a peek at the kitty cat whenever you want, but Microsoft's already allowed us to steal a glimpse at our free games.

April is fairly special in that there are twice the number of titles offered to download for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Whether or not you're interested in all six of them is another story.

The two Xbox One games in April will have you chalking your cue and spouting off rhymes in awkward rhythm, too. Pool Nation FX and Child of Light are both available throughout the entirety of the month.

Those on Xbox 360 will find themselves sticking blades in necks, and chainsaws on guns. But, that's only half the fun. Gears of War: Judgment and Terraria will be available from April 1 to 15 (no foolin'!). After that, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel take over until it's time to flip to yet another kitten.

Mekazoo has a cheeky rhyme for tricky gameplay photo
Mekazoo has a cheeky rhyme for tricky gameplay
by Brett Makedonski

“When in doubt, switch them out.” Sage-like advice, really. That’s what Mekazoo’s creative director Jarrett Slavin had to tell me to do when I showed obvious struggles playing his demo. I’m no stranger to platformers, but this one has a learning curve about it that’s difficult to grasp, but so rewarding once you find a rhythm.

His suggestion was one that developers Good Mood Creators coined whenever someone seemed to temporarily forget that Mekazoo features a dual-animal system. It’s easy to fall into the trap of cruising right along with your game-assigned, tech-glimmering creature -- so much so that repeated failures of a section are likely less a case of “you’re bad at this game” and more “you need to try with the other animal.”

Half the reason that Mekazoo players have a tendency to put strategy on the back-burner is because the game looks so damn enchanting. Sporting a “2.5D” aesthetic, the camera has a way of wrapping and zooming around  in a controlled frenzy that adds depth to the levels. When it’s time to slow things down again, a standard two-dimensional approach is taken.
