Greetings Backloggers! Welcome back from summer vacation. The Burndown spent the summer trying to get a tan, and then a lot more of the summer hiding away from the evil glowing sky orb while recovering from sunburns inflicted upon its poor, pale body. At least I had time to finish a few games!
At PAX West this past weekend, Gearbox held their usual panel. In the presentation, CEO Randy Pitchford shed some more light on the unannounced-yet-pretty-much-announced Borderlands 3. Fans like myself have been aching to get an announcement on the new sequel, but Gearbox has stayed pretty quiet about it, with the exception of little hints here and there. I attended the PAX East Panel this past Ma...[Read More]
Bulletstorm was a game that I hadn’t heard of back in 2011. I had visited this local gaming store and saw the box art for it and had noticed Epic Games was behind it, of which I am a huge fan of the Gears of War series. Why hadn’t I known about this game then? Well it seems the game was only going to cost me about $4, so I bought it, of course. Initially, I didn’t have my expectations too high due...[Read More]
To this day, I still remember picking up Bulletstorm. I’ll be honest and say the game did not interest me when I first heard about it. Quite frankly, I didn’t even really know much about it until it actually came out. Well one day at this local gaming store I live by, I picked it up for literally $5. After a week or so of playing this balls to the wall action campaign, I thought to myself, “...[Read More]
Epic Games held an event at the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. Among the speakers was Randy Pitchford, who showed some new technology that Gearbox is working with. Now we all know Borderlands 3 is going to happen, as Gearbox has made little teases here and there. They just have not made an official announcement as of yet. At GDC, Pitchford showed us more of what Borderla...[Read More]
Anyone who grew up in the nineties has uttered the words “Hail to the king baby,” at one time or another. We grew up in an era where CD-roms were all the rage and you either were the kid with all the games, or you went to your friends house because they had all the games. My family was pretty late to the game getting a computer, but when we did, you can bet that I tried to get as many games as pos...[Read More]
Earlier this year during Pax East, Gearbox’s CEO Randy Pitchford teased that there would “obviously be another Borderlands title but he was not certain if it would be called Borderlands 3.
Gearbox fans rejoice! Not only is Battleborn less than a month away, but Borderlands is getting another entry in the well-loved franchise. This will be the first time Gearbox themselves have worked in the Borderlands universe since the second game, meaning all qualms with the Pre-Sequel many hardcore fans had should be eradicated. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford revealed this announcement during a pan...[Read More]
Lucha Fury is a good-looking game, and you can tell that Punchers Impact treated the game as a labor of love. Four luchador wrestlers (who are also slackers) come together to stop a shortage of their favorite energy drink only to stumble upon something more sinister; this is no normal shortage. Ancient Gods are stealing the world’s supply of Pollojo, because they don’t think the human race deserve...[Read More]
Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 is a difficult game to describe. Thom took a shot and described it as Hogan’s Heroes meets Inglourious Basterds. Wait…that wasn’t very difficult at all. That pretty much nails it, actually. It’s gory, violent, and over the top like Inglourious Basters, and it’s fucking funny like Hogan’s Heroes. As a side note, I feel comfortable swea...[Read More]
During Ubisoft’s E3 press conference today, the next game from Gearbox was announced. Hot on the success of Borderlands and the completion of Duke Nukem Forever, Gearbox announced they are returning to the Brothers in Arms franchise with Brothers in Arms Furious 4, set to release early next year.
Recently, Sproing Interactive and dtp entertainment released Dance! It’s Your Stage for Xbox Live Arcade. Having already released the game for PC and Nintendo Wii, I was curious as to how it would play on the 360.
