Borderlands 2 was, and still is, an amazing game. The sequel to the surprise hit from Gearbox brought a lot of new players to the world of Pandora, and it’s a world that is filled with life, action, and Easter Eggs. But, one of the most interesting Easter Eggs in the game is an NPC called Michael Mamaril. You likely won’t know his name (barring you hearing it from other Borderlands 2 players), but his story is touching.
The Borderlands movie that Lionsgate took on last year finally has a screenwriter and a producer. Aaron Berg, who was responsible for creating the script for Section 6, will be tasked with writing duties on the R-rated movie. Meanwhile, Arad Productions will take on the producing role, giving the movie the backing of people who have worked on films such as Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man and Ghost Rider.
Gearbox’s next big project, Battleborn, was on full display for attendees to play at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. This title was getting a great deal of positive buzz online, so I was very curious to finally check it out and see what the game is really about. Based on the playable demo that was available, Battleborn appears to be an eclectic mix of multiple game genres. It is hard to really classify the title. It definitely has a different play style and feel than a game like Borderlands. However, it absolutely has the signature Gearbox style and sense of humor that is very reminiscent of Borderlands. Overall, the demo was a fun and interesting experience during the Expo.
While day one patches have been around this the launch of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the current generation of consoles seems to have taken the practice to the extreme. Almost every game that is released now sees a patch made available to download and Gearbox’s latest title, Borderlands: The Handsome Jack Collection, is not different. The remastering of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will require users to download a day one update if they want to remain online while playing the game.
The developers behind the Borderlands series have today revealed their first original franchise since Borderlands launched as Gearbox announce Battleborn. Revealed as the cover story for the next issue of Game Informer, Battleborn is described as “a fusion of first-person shooting and loot-grabbing RPG elements in a living comic book art style” which doesn’t sound too far flung from Gearbox’s most popular Borderlands series.
Sony has announced that acclaimed console FPS Borderlands 2 will make its handheld debut on the PS Vita along with many of the biggest upcoming indie titles.
Well this is pretty cool! With Aliens: Colonial Marines just 5 days out from its US launch date of February 12th, Sega/Gearbox have released an extended cut of the previously seen “Contact” trailer. I’m not sure which one I like more, but this latest trailer has some pretty great scenes added on. Check it out below!
It seems Gearbox and Sega have decided to give every Aliens fan out there an early Christmas present in to form of a bunch of new Colonial Marines footage and info! Speaking personally as a fan who has been waiting his whole life for an Aliens experience like this one, February simply can’t come quickly enough.
The original Borderlands was a pretty unique concept brought to market by developer Gearbox, a loot loaded RPG with shooter gameplay wrapped in a cartoonish presentation. Borderlands sold well and received fantastic support through DLC, but the formula clearly had room for improvement. Fast forward to 2012 and few games this year have garnered as much hype and interest as Borderlands 2, but now that its been released does the finished product validate all those high expectations? Hell yes it does!
In this latest trailer for Gearbox’s love letter to James Cameron is plenty of info on both the Marines and Aliens. We see plenty of great multiplayer shots and even some concept art of brand new Xenos. If you watch carefully you may even spot an acid spitting variant with a cool looking head crest. Check out the trailer below.
It seems that today Sega made an official announcement on the finalized contents of both the Limited and Collector’s edition of Alien’s Colonial Marines. Sadly for us, it’s not in English quite yet. From what we can gather though, fans of the movie are going to flip their lids at some of the content being provided here.
