As expected, Battleborn is getting microtransactions

Gearbox is pulling a Garden Warfare 1 -- in that it launched its game without microtransactions, but is adding them in several months later. The culprit? Battleborn, which is getting a new premium currency system called "Platinum" on J...   read

A graphics card overclocking program has more Steam users than Battleborn

When Battleborn launched a few weeks ago, the response was uh… muted, to say the least. At best it’s an okay FPS-MOBA hybrid, at worst it’s not much more than a wet fart in a lift. It’s also leaking players like the...   read

Tales from the Borderlands now available on disc

I can't stress enough how good Tales from the Borderlands is. It made the number one spot on my personal game of the year list for 2015. It's probably the most densely comedic Borderlands game and one of the most sharply written Telltale ga...   read
