Here are the details of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's Bloody Harvest Celebration

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's free, limited-time mini event Bloody Harvest Celebration just launched a couple hours ago. The teaser image has several pumpkin-flavored pieces of art, but little extra information. I jumped into...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's free Halloween content is live right now
by Darren Nakamura

Last year, Borderlands 2 kicked off its Headhunter series of DLC with T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest, a Halloween-themed mini-expansion that had players meeting up with zombie T.K. Baha and shooting a lot of pumpkins.

It looks like 2K is continuing the tradition with this year's Bloody Harvest Celebration, but rather than paid DLC introducing new areas, this one is a limited time event and is available right now as a free update. It alters the area Regolith Range to feature pumpkin-headed enemies, including a replacement of the boss Deadlift with Undeadlift. Get it? Playing through and can net players an exclusive gun called the Jack-o'-Cannon.

It's an interesting take on DLC, especially for a series that gets criticized for its handling of post-release content. Free stuff is hard to argue with, and I know the time constraint is going to get me to try it out quickly instead of putting it off. Sneaky.

This War of Mine is a harrowing journey of survival photo
This War of Mine is a harrowing journey of survival
by Alessandro Fillari

War, what is it good for? For starters, it makes for easy entertainment in fiction. With the rise of war games over the last two decades, it's common to see these experiences as nothing but an over-the-top spectacle to show off explosions and the might of the military. But in recent years, we've begun to see more games that pay attention to the philosophical and existential conflicts related to war.

One of my favorite last-gen games, Spec Ops: The Line, subverted expectations by reintroducing the horror and dread that war imparts on those it touches. And with last summer's Valiant Hearts, which told the stories of men and women during World War I, I'm glad we're seeing more of the human and emotional side of armed conflict.

Back at PAX Prime 2014, I had the opportunity to experience another such title called This War of Mine. Meeting with the developers at 11 bit studios, I got to chat about the origins and intentions they have with their survivalist take on war.

Review in Progress: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Patch 2.4)
by Chris Carter

I still can't believe Square Enix salvaged the original Final Fantasy XIV. I mean, it had the guts to make the game a core entry, so I'm glad the studio reworked it into A Realm Reborn -- this whole saga is just really interesting to me.

The newest update is Dreams of Ice, featuring a Primal/Summon many fans of the classic series know and love, Shiva. It also brings along the typical major changes and content bits, as well as one of the biggest additions so far -- a new class/job.

Whoa! Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty fun photo
Whoa! Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is pretty fun
by Steven Hansen

Look, you can't blame me for turning a blind eye to Final Fantasy Type-0. Why hurt and labor and want over something you can't have? At least not a videogame, of which there are alternates and substitutes plenty.

Elliot Gay knew what was up. He played it on PSP. He sought out the unlikely HD remake, which we are somehow getting in the United States of America next spring, and played it at TGS.

What Square brought to Paris Games Week was a similar demo. Three playable characters partied up, a large area to run through. I'm just here to tell you what Elliot already knew. This game is pretty cool. Maybe Final Fantasy XV could be good.

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...

Shiny Gengar is no more (hope you got yours!) but another distribution event for Pokémon X and Y has taken its place. Today through November 16 at GameStop, you'll be able to score a free code for the Legendary Rock/Fairy-type Pokémon Diancie.

Once Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are released on November 21, you'll then be able to bring your Diancie to a Pokémon Center in either game to obtain the Diancite Mega Stone necessary for its Mega Evolution. What's the new form look like? Less ... chunky.

Review: Mind Zero  photo
Review: Mind Zero
by Brittany Vincent

At a glance, it's easy to look at Mind Zero and compare it to the Persona series given its art style and the narrative advertised within early trailers and promotional materials. And you wouldn't be incorrect in declaring that it borrows several elements from the popular role-playing series.

Still, it's unfair to call Mind Zero a copycat when its most fundamental elements are much different from the Shin Megami Tensei spinoff. That doesn't mean the game is actually all that impressive, however. Acquire and ZeroDiv's Vita RPG features an interesting premise, but in the end it's a weaker product than those that obviously inspired it.

Review: Fantasy Life  photo
Review: Fantasy Life
by Brittany Vincent

One of the biggest gripes I hear from friends interested in but hesitant to play Japanese role-playing games is that they're too "complicated." It's a sentiment I've never understood; several take great pains to be accessible and enjoyable to a wide variety of players. Unfortunately, my explanations of tropes and tried-and-true mechanics aren't usually enough to sway the potential players, and they're swept away by a title of a different ilk.

That's why Fantasy Life is such an interesting case. It takes familiar elements such as classes, grinding for XP, and character customization and distills them into something that can be digested by just about any type of player. Oh, and it helps that it's a lot of fun, too.
