The gang returns from thanksgiving break with Tales from the Borderlands, Dragon Age, Star Wars, Kingdom Rush Origins, and more!
Happy Valentine’s day gang! Who would have thought we’d still be celebrating the sacrifice of some Christian saint that was beaten and beheaded in the name of love. Today, the fine folks at Gearbox issued a special Valentine’s day SHiFT code that can be used for some all new Borderlands 2 prizes. We love prizes
Is there room on the Rated NA podcast for two folks named Ash? We’re joined on this week’s episode of Rated NA by writer, actress, and all around bad ass, Ashly Burch.
Unlike PAX: East where only Maya and Salvador were playable, all four character classes were available to choose from at Prime, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on Zero the ninja. Given about 30 skill points to allocate, I ended up dumping almost all of my points into close combat as I was eager to see how this ninja thing really worked.
Whats new in the worlds of SWTOR and Mass Effect? Gearbox is good people, and we update our fall TV predictions. Reviews of Skyrim, Rayman Origins, Uncharted 3, and Battlefield 3. Finally, we try to convince “D the P” to play SWTOR in our open thread. Featuring Cossby Sweater’s “Comedians”, nice! (http://cossbysweater.bandcamp.com/)
What is it about Duke Nukem that makes him so special? Simple answer, Duke hasn’t changed. While Duke’s legacy of delays and closed studios has no doubt eclipsed the content of the game itself ( there is even an interactive game release timeline on the disc) Duke Nukem is the same asshole that he’s always been, and people like that. Following Scott’s lead I stopped by the nearest Red Box and payed two dollars to take Duke Nukem home with me for the evening. I had a feeling Duke would be a shitty date, but I decided to take him home with me anyway.
So why has there never been a truly amazing Aliens video game? Gearbox hopes to fix that with Aliens Colonial Marines coming in 2012. Take a look at this teaser… for the film that should have been.
….While the game looks like a lot of fun, fans of the series are up in arms about the game’s shift in tone and characters. I for one welcome the change. A few years ago journalists tricked developers into thinking that gamers didn’t want to play WW2 games anymore, when in fact they were still selling quite well. Now, we get gritty/realistic “modern” shooters set in fictitious versions of Iraq, Afghanistan, and the new goto war-zone New York City (golf clap).
