Tales from the Borderlands Episode 3 out June 23

In life, sometimes it's best to celebrate the little victories. For instance, the forces of the universe have prevented me from attending E3 this year, but as a consolation, Telltale is releasing Tales from the Borderlands Episode 3: Catch ...   read

Legendary weapons now drop three times as often in Borderlands

While dedicated players still roam the fringes of the Borderlands, Gearbox has been playing the part of mad scientist. Or, at least normal scientist. The developer's been toying with the way that legendary drops function in the series' most...   read

The beauty and tragedy of a perfectly planned character

I've probably spent more time creating characters, builds, and dreaming up party compositions in my head than I have actually playing games. It seems odd to think of it in that way, but if I could somehow tally it all up I bet it wouldn't e...   read

Nintendo took a big spot in last week's news, with the highs of the Nintendo Direct and the lows of the Wave 4 amiibo rollout. Does that give the company perfect balance, like a haiku? I'm not sure. In this series, we take a look at the st...   read

Review: Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage

With Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I like and dislike different parts of it in almost equal measure. The combat is exciting and the characters are likable. On the other hand, the environments are a little dull and it suffers from a host...   read
