People often when discussing Gearbox Software and its CEO Randy Pitchford talk about the mess that was Aliens: Colonial Marines and Duke Nukem Forever – but I haven’t trusted them since E3 2004 when they showed off Brother in Arms: Road to Hill 30.
Borderlands 2 has two new DLC packs available, the first is called Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty which to old players of the Borderlands franchise will recognise the format with previous DLC packs. You download it and play a side story in the Borderlands universe gaining cool new loot as you do. The second DLC pack is called the Mechromancer (Gaige) which adds a new class to Borderlands 2.
The sequel to Gearbox Software’s excellent FPS RPG game Borderlands, Borderlands 2 is now available for digital download from Steam and from all good retail shops. The game costs £29.99 on PC while it costs £39.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You can also buy a Borderlands 2 Four-Pack on Steam for £89.99 which means you are buying three and getting one free.
Gearbox Software have announced a bonus for players of the first Borderlands game, who intend on playing the sequel Borderlands 2. “Vault Veteran” skins and heads (helmets), will be available for each character for returning players.
Namco Bandai Splatterhouse is looking tasty if you’re a meat-eater that is. It is a remake of the original Splatterhouse which was released in 1988. The game combines beat ’em up mechanics with survival horror.
The game is filled with blood, bones, limbs etc being put in positions they aren’t naturally suppose to be in. The game seems like a typically hack n slash but I am sure there’s more to it than that. The character design reminds me of Borderlands which means it has a distinctive look. I find it to be eye-catching.
Splatterhouse will be set loose around December time on PS3 and Xbox 360.
