Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is ever-so creeping up on us and we shouldn't forget this great looking co-op title, despite its coming arrival on last gen hardware. The new Dev Diary #3 video discusses the playable characters of the game and what players can expect to see with their personal story lines. If you recall during Borderlands 2, ...

Borderlands Online Play Is Back Thanks to SteamworksJustin Reynolds

Borderlands saw an update in July, removing the game's SecuRom DRM coding and allowing access to the Granting Tool, which enables players to convert retail versions of the game to digital Steam versions. With the Steamworks server migration now in full effect, this is how you'll access online play. (2K has published a guide on how to use the tool on their blog.)

Vinnie Cannoli is a rough gangster from the heart of Thugtown, and he's on the hunt for one of his pals who has gone missing. Talking to the local gangsters usually gets things done, right? Talking, of course, refers to letting loose a few hundred rounds from a Tommy gun before walking through a puddle of the other person's blood.

Recently, Aspyr Media confirmed that they will be porting Borderlands 2 over to Linux soon, giving players even more options to experience this fantastic co-op game. The confirmation from Aspyr was followed by a listing for the Linux version on the Steam Database, including their name save file path directory. What's interesting here is that it wasn't that long ago that Randy Pitchford of Gearbox stated that Borderlands 2 would probably not be ported over to Linux at all. Then, there was a confirmation that Borderlands: The Pre-sequel would be arriving on Linux in addition to the Xbox 360 version.

Traditionally DLC for the LEGO games have taken the form of new character models that have had little impact on the gameplay.  LEGO Batman 3 will have these characters, but will also feature new story missions that can be played in freeplay too.

Trying to find the words to describe what the Binding of Isaac is about without sounding like a Satanic cult is certainly a challenge, but it's the humor and gameplay at its core that truly makes it great. Similar to that of the original Legend of Zelda dungeon maps, players control Isaac, a naked boy who fires tears as projectiles and a variety of other characters to explore the unknown depths of his basement (or Hell if you prefer). The game mixes elements of action and dungeon crawling to the greatest effect, and now Rebirth supports a local co-op mode!. Up to 2-players can team up to uncover new levels, power-ups, items, characters, enemies, and more that the game has to offer, and in the best version available. There's so much to experience here, even for veterans of the game.

The Metal Slug series may seem a little simplistic by today's standards, as it was originally designed to be a quarter-munching run and gun arcade game. Loosely translated, this means you hold down the fire button and try not to get hit. Metal Slug 3 includes more weapons and some interesting vehicles to ride in, which does add a little bit of spice to the slug dinner. The pixel art was something to be hold back in the day, and it still looks frickin' gorgeous, if you ask us.

Not a huge amount is known about the DLC for Borderlands -1, but give them a break; the game is not even out yet.  What you will get with the pass is a 25% reduction in the cost of 4 pieces of DLC.  The poster suggests these will supply; new missions, new challenges, new characters and new experiences.

The mixture of classical music with modern hits may appear a little jarring at first, but both should fit into the gameplay of Fantasia.  The game has a series of mini games that you play using the Kinect (you know that thing covered in dust in the corner); some of which use bagin' tunes such as:

We've got some developer created co-op footage here detailing some of the new modes in Rebirth. Player One controls Isaac (or one of his various incarnations), while Player Two takes control of... Well. It's a fetus. I think it's a fetus, at least. Look, this game is really screwed up. Just watch.

Of course, once you upgrade you'll need the requisite Disney Infinity base and figures to play. The reasoning behind this offer? Avalanche Software's Vice President and General Manager John Blackburn explains that in the year since Disney Infinity has launched, the number of Wii U owners has significantly increased. Avalanche wishes to continue to support compatibility for their players. Also, with Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes being due out shortly, Avalanche wants their players to experience the original in HD before the sequel, if they want to.
