Borderlands 2 Final DLC Accidentally Revealed; Possible 7th Vault Hunter?

    As you can see in the accidentally leaked picture above, Gearbox confirmed to Joystiq that Tiny Tina’s Assualt on Dragon’s Keep will be the next and final(?) DLC for Borderlands 2. Many fans speculate this could possibly be content with an MMO feel, which wouldn’t be too far fetched considering the games’ leveling mechanics. 

Metal Gear Soild Legacy Collection “Too Big” for XBox 360

The Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection is in a sense, Kojima’s love letter to fans of the MGS series. It contains every MGS title which Kojima was directly involved in as a creator, designer and director. The Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. Noticeably absent are the ACID and OPS titles which have been omitted from the collection since Kojima was not directly involved in their production.

Death Inc. Video Game Dies; Irony Ensues

    Ambient Studios was one of those awesome companies that had a lot going for it.  When I first heard about Death Inc., and saw the footage, I immediately thought this game was going to replace my Mushroom Wars addiction.  RTS?  Lord Death? Hundreds of minions at your command?  Yes, dude, yes!  Sadly, after a failed crowd funding attempt, all hopes for Death Inc. to see the light of day seemed all but lost.

Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel – Review

Leave your brain at the door, grab a buddy with a sophomoric sense of humor, and have yourself a stupid fun time. You don’t need me to tell you that Army of Two: Devil’s Cartel is not a great game, it’s really not even a good game. But that’s not to say that it’s a bad game, far from it. It’s just a stupid game. Ironically enough, that’s exactly where the fun lies.

Quantic Dream: Serious Gaming is Serious

    In an exclusive interview with Eurogamer, Quantic Dream Guillaume de Fondaumiere spoke about working with the incredible talents of Ellen Page And Willem Dafoe and how working with Hollywood A-List talent will help change the landscape of how games are viewed.  “This performance is going to change people’s and gamers’ perception of how a character needs to behave in a video game,” Fondaumiere said.  “Probably, when people will see Beyond – other studios – they will want to have a great talent in their games, too, because we’re going to see a difference, and it’s going to be striking.”

DmC: Devil May Cry Review

Far be it for me to review a game I’m hardly fit to do any justice when it comes to gameplay.  If you listen to our podcasts, and you really should, you know that BobbyBeatle plays this game with the accuracy and skill of Dante himself.  When he picks up that controller, you see Triple S in mere seconds.  The kid is a virtual battery when it comes to combos.  While not as big an enthusiast for the series as Beatle, I really do love the characters and mythos behind Devil May Cry.  Most of all I love Hideki Kamiya, the original series creator, who had nothing to do with this game.  Also since Beatle hasn’t done a review for us in over a year(SAD FACE!), it’s up to me to bring you the review you need, but not the one you deserve.

Batman: Arkham Origins Announcement

Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced that the next Batman game is officially titled BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS, taking place during the beginning of Batman’s first caped crusade out-goings. Expect to fight foes like Deathstroke (seen on the cover to the next Game Informer issue). The game will take place during Christmas Eve night as the aforementioned Deathstroke and other assassins come to Gotham to kill the Dark Knight. 

Ubisoft Toronto Developing Unannounced Assassin’s Creed Title

    Under supervision of Managing Director, Jade Raymond, Ubisoft Toronto has been tapped to produce the next installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.  Not to be confused with the anticipated Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which is a prequel to Ass-Creed III, Jade and crew will be working on the next installment of the series, due out next year.  If you didn’t already know, Raymond served as producer and executive producer on both Assassin’s Creed I & II, respectively.  So, if anyone is to take the series back to it’s former glory, leaving the next title in her hands is the best route to take.
