John Bardinelli - Contributor

John started playing games back in the dark days before the internet. You know, Game Boy link cables, multitaps and all of that. Now, with portable devices dwarfing the power of his first few gaming consoles, John mostly sticks to the PC and mobile worlds and has a particular fondness for retro-themed indie games. That, and Borderlands! Over the past decade John has written for more than a dozen gaming sites, covering everything from browser to mainstream games. Once the day's work has been done, he can usually be found with his nose in some ancient history or philosophy book. Next stop: publishing another game script, or maybe a regular old work of fiction!

When not writing or gaming, John has a summer home on Arrakis where he spends his leisure time wrestling sandworms.

Another Huge Patch for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection

Ready for your PS4 or Xbox One's hard drive to take another one for the team? Shortly after the March release of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, Gearbox rolled out a huge patch for both systems that weighed in at roughly 16GB. Two months later we get hit with another patch, this one around 8GB. Good thing 1.25 inch floppies aren't the storage norm.

BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition Heading to PC, Consoles in Late May

Here's a juicy confession: I really enjoyed BADLAND when it was first released on mobile devices, like, a hundred years ago or whatever. Great game, great artwork, just great all around. Not too long ago, BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition was announced for PC and consoles, hauling with it some neat upgrades, including a full-on co-op mode. Excitement mode... engage!

Can you feel the magic(ka)?

Humble Paradox Bundle is Drenched in Magicka

The Humble Paradox Interactive Bundle has launched, and it's got a good dose of Magicka waiting to be consumed. Maybe it's to capitalize on the buzz surrounding Magicka 2's release later this month. Or maybe it's just because cheap games are good. Either way, you can get your hands on some co-op wizard video entertainment software for whatever price you feel like paying. Score!
