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..

Oscar Mike for charity

December 4, 2009

Anyone that’s played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has heard the phrase “Oscar Mike.” Some of those players didn’t know what it meant, including myself, and made me think of Oscar Mayer Bologna. Oscar Mike means “On the Move.”

Short review: COD:MW2 is an awesome game. The story didn’t feel like the previous, this one had more of an epic action movie feel. The online is just massive. Check it out.

Giant Bomb has Oscar Mike T-shirts for purchase in their shop. The proceeds will go to the Child’s Play charity fund.

Get Oscar Mike to Giant Bomb now!

November 22, 2009

So the latest firmware update added the comic reader to the PSP. Sadly the comic store doesn’t open until December. What good is a reader if you’ve got nothing to read on it!?

November 10, 2009

The epic loot ‘n shoot game Borderlands is getting it’s first DLC pack late in November. The pack features a new island for vault hunters to explore. The only catch is, it’s crawling with the undead! Dr. Ned has taken up residence there and his evil experiments has created a way to bring the dead to life. Unfortunately their hunger for flesh was a little more than hoped for.

The DLC pack drops on Xbox Live Marketplace and Playstation Network on November 24th. It will cost 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 USD. No word yet on if the PC version will also be getting the pack or not.

Lazy? Want Pizza? Own a PS3?

September 16, 2009

You’re in luck! Now you can order Papa John’s pizza right from your Playstation 3. A Papa John’s button was added to the XMB on the PS3, but all it does is open the web browser to the PJ’s site. This isn’t the first time pizza ordering services were added to games. Everquest 2 did it a little while back. EQ is a Sony game so they aren’t new to the pizza game.

Earthworm Jim crawling to consoles again!

August 17, 2009

jimSega has been running a poll for which Genesis game you wanted to see come to the download markets of our current systems. Earthworm Jim crushed them under his super suit boot! I’m not sure why Sega was deciding this, EWJ was on just about every system there was in the 90’s.

Love/Hate: Difficulty Level

July 26, 2009

lovehate copy

Difficulty level  is the factor that separates the men from the boys, or the girls from the women (yes there are girl gamers, don’t freak out). Difficulty is a huge factor in games. Games can be too hard, and they can be too easy, and sometimes they are just right. Gamers all have their own preference for difficulty. I like a challenge when I play, but that same challenge can also discourage me from playing. This week I’m touching on difficulty and why we love and hate it.

PSP + Comics = Where IS my PSP?

July 8, 2009

The above image is very simulated. According to Kotaku, Japan’s Playstation Store will be putting comics up for download to the PSP. Offering something other than Anime styled Tactical RPG’s that line the PSP racks in every Gamestop I’ve ever been in.

There is no release date yet for when the actually plan on doing this, but they did say it will work with every model (even the new mess the PSP Go).

Excited? No? Me either, this just seems like another gimmick from Sony instead of making some solid titles for the PSP. What do you think? Rush down those comments SON!
