Borderlands Gameplay Trailer

Borderlands, from Gearbox Entertainment already had me intrigued with it’s Mad Max style take on open world FPS games, but then it had to go ahead and sell me on the idea with it’s unique artistic aesthetic and RPG elements.

For those that don’t know, the best way to describe Borderlands is Fallout 3 meets Mad Max. That may not really be doing the title justice, but it’s the only way I can put it into words.

It doesn’t seem like players can create their own avatar, but they take control of one of 4 characters, and roam a somewhat post apocalyptic world, battling enemies and gaining experience points. On top of that, there is a near infinite amount of guns that can be created using parts found in the world. I literally saw, in one demo, a shotgun that was modified to freeze enemies, then explode them.

The game hits US shores on October 30th, 2009, but to tide you over, a gameplay trailer has been released, and is found at the link below.

On a side note, my internet is down at home, so unfortunately, I won’t be able to update further for the next few days (i’m currently at work, which frowns upon things like posting on your website). Have a great weekend everybody!

Sony and Quantic Dreams have finally lifted the veil over their Playstation 3 exclusive suspense/thriller title, Heavy Rain, with a slew of screenshots and a new trailer showcasing it’s unique gameplay.

Visually, the game is looking stunning, with an insane amount of detail on the character models and the environments, with amazing animation. Follow the links below for the video, as well as the second link for screenshots.

9 Minutes of Bioshock 2 Footage

Posted in Game Videos, News, PC, Playstation 3, PSN, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE with tags , , , , , , on May 14, 2009 by Stefano Terry

IGN was kind enough to post 9 minutes of Bioshock 2 footage for our enjoyment, so I’m just passing along the information (and the link!) to you all here!

The footage looks good, if not very familiar (I’m a bit disappointed that the game, graphically, looks very much like the original Bioshock), but the duel plasmid/weapon mechanic is looking like a blast, and the new baddy, the Big Sister, looks cool and scary to fight. Enjoy the video at the link below.

Bioshock 2 is hitting the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 later this year.
