Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot comes to Borderlands

December 11, 2009

More Borderlands news for you. A new DLC pack is coming to gamers by the end of the month. Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot is not only bringing more arenas to the game, but also a whole new game mode. Think of ODST’s Firefight or Gears of Wars 2 Horde mode.


Borderlands 2: Borderworlds?

December 4, 2009

Borderlands was a freaking awesome game. So awesome that Gearbox has said they are totally doing a sequel! Destructoid posted yesterday that the Borderlands sequel may be titled Borderworlds.

This confuses me. The planet in BL was called Pandora. It was used as a prison planet cause it was the harshest planet to live on, and it had mining opportunities, plus a mythical vault that was said to be full of goodies! So will there be an introduction of new planets to the Borderlands universe? Will we be traveling between them, or will they just stick us on one the whole time? Only time will tell…or maybe Gearbox..

Kerrigan is a Cylon

August 24, 2009

thNo this isn’t about Battlestar Galactica. It’s about Tricia Helfer joining the voice cast on Starcraft II. Helfer will be taking the role of Kerrigan, the Terran Psychic turned Zerg Commander.

The original voice actor for Kerrigan was Glynnis Talken Campbell. Blizzard did not ask her to come back to reprise the role. She did the Kerrigan voice in the 2008 Starcraft II trailer, but has since been replaced by Helfer.
