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.

Borderlands is the star of the show, and for a few pence you can pick up the original game, the sequel, tons of DLC and add-on packs, and some coupons for 2K merchandise and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Earth Defense Force 2 Getting an Enhanced North American Vita Release

XSEED Games is getting ready to release another Earth Defense Force game in North America. Know what that means? Another confusing mess of trans-oceanic naming conventions! Earth Defense Force 2 is making its debut, and it's technically a prequel to the previous games released in the US, which makes sense in other territories since it was actually released before them. Shrug.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition Adds Skin Support, Fishing, Baby Zombies

The "cute but don't let that fool you" brawler Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds is packed with serious combo chaining, ability unleashing, character upgrading action that's extremely well-suited for co-op play. The original version has been kicking around the PC, Vita and Xbox 360 scenes for awhile, but the PlayStation 4 Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive release adds new features, including online co-op!

Legally distinct from Castlevania, but we know the secret!

Igarashi-Designed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Hits Co-Op Stretch Goal

Do you ache for the days of sidescrolling Castlevania games where you can get lost in a sea of flying medusa heads because you got lost on your way to find that one stupid piece of armor you wanted? Designer and former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi does, too, which is why he kicked off a crowdfunding campaign for the frighteningly similar Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
