The Fuse "launch" trailer is now live. The game doesn't come out for like a week and a half so that's... weird. Why do I have the feeling there's going to be another trailer? The video offers a sliver of back story and features the prerequisite cool weapon footage and an abundance of explosions, faceless bad guys, and exploding faceless bad guys. I know, I know, it's still not Overstrike, but it looks like it has potential to be a pretty decent squad-based shooter.
Oh boy, more Borderlands 2 content! Just what I need, another reason to add to the 212 hours I've spent on Pandora - and that's NOT counting the first Borderlands. Okay, Gearbox, let's see if your hellborn, bloodlusting, maniac can tempt me back to the land of Bandits and Bullymongs. It's time to take Kreig the Psycho for a thrill kill joyride.
By now you've heard the news about the new character coming to Borderlands 2 and the bump in the level cap. The Psycho Bandit Krieg won't be arriving until May, but the "Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack" is dropping next week. A title update will accompany the upgrade, adding a few new items to the Black Market.
Boom goes the infographics! Everyone loves them. I think. Either way we've got them for you to check out for Fuse, the upcoming Insomniac Games co-op shooter that looks to have some solid potential. The one sheets show off the character, some background, their weapons and skills and how they'll behave in the game's four player co-op campaign.
What do you get when you combined a formula created by Smash T.V. with a demented fantasy filled theme park where the only thing riding is the heads of the enemies you lopped off? You get DungeonLand a new action game with some addictive elements and plenty of co-op action.
Admit it, you saw this coming from a mile away. With all the cool (and not-so-cool) player skins available for the five classes in Borderlands 2, it was only a matter of time before Gearbox started charging us for some super-cool new heads and threads. Gearbox just announced 15 new player skin and head combinations. That's three for each character, if it's too early in the day for you to math.
We are only a few days away from the third installment of Borderlands 2 DLC. "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt" will go live on January 15. Jason and I have played through the new adventure, and I really can't say anything more than that. I can say that if Gearbox decided to have a weekend event where they offered high powered weapons, you should probably take advantage of it. Oh, what a coincidence! Sir Hammerlock himself, or whoever happens to be running the @ECHOcasts Twitter feed, just announced a "Gear Up Weekend." What does that mean, exactly?
If you have somehow managed to NOT pick up Borderlands, Borderlands 2, or the Borderlands 2 Season Pass, today is your lucky day. All three items are on sale on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The original Borderlands is going for $9.99, Borderlands 2 is on sale for $39.99, and the BL2 Season Pass is available for 1800 MSP, or $22.50. (It normally costs $30.) These prices are available for today only, so buy them now!
Remember when Overstrike was announced, and everyone was like, "Coooooooool?" Then remember when it became Fuse, and everyone simultaneously lost interest? Remember how it got worse when the box art was revealed, and each character's head was bizarrely cropped out, literally making the four playable characters little more than faceless soldiers clad in generic battle armor? Yeah. That was a bummer. Despite those missteps, Fuse still looks pretty damn good in action, and that's what really matters.
Are your ready? More Borderlands 2 DLC is heading our way. Details have been surfacing for "Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt," the third add-on for the role-playing shooter. Similar to the two "leaks" that basically announced "Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty" and "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage," details for "Big Game Hunt" appeared in the most recent patch.
Borderlands 2 received a a rather large patch today. The 3 MB patch offers better Badass Rank protection, reduces the level cap for DLC raid bosses in Normal Mode, fixes the Fleshstick leveling exploit, and it also alters how Amp damage is applied to projectiles. Basically, they nerfed the Bee Shield, so I hope you didn't spend too much time farming it. You can see a full list of the patch details after the break.
Heads up gamers. See that crew of snipers from Far Cry 3's co-op mode up there? I wonder what Leonard, Tisha, Mikhail and Callum are shooting at... Could it be Xbox 360 and PC co-op aficionados? Maybe. You see, Ubisoft Massive will be launching a DLC co-op pack in January, which is awesome. But it's exclusive to the PS3 version of the game, which is lame. (Unless you pick up Far Cry 3 on the PS3, then it's still awesome.)
Ok. We get it. Borderlands 2 is a badass game. It's got badass guns, badass enemies, badass characters, and even a Badass Rank (which spontaneously resets itself from time to time). I love me some Borderlands 2, but I think I'm over all the badass stuff. It's kind of played. Just look at this AMA Gearbox writer Anthony Burch did for Reddit yesterday (in character as Mr. Torgue). It's kind of fun while simultaneously being kind of dumb. I like it, but I'm ashamed of myself for liking it. I guess that's the point.
Borderlands 2's second campaign DLC, "Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage," has been confirmed through a Gearbox Twitter account. The @ECHOcasts account was being used by the Mechromancer character until it was "hacked' by Mr. Torgue earlier today. After a poor choice of "explosion-based punctuation," Mr. Torgue went on to tweet:
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 ushers in the return of the cooperative Zombies mode. This time they are on a bus. Well, you are on a bus, the zombies are trying to get a free ride.
