Borderlands 3 Gets Halloween Themed Content

about X hours ago from

If you’ve been spending time in Borderlands 3 with your friends (like we have) and you’re wondering what to do next in the world of looting and shooting, you’re in luck. Developer Gearbox has announced the Bloody Harvest content for Borderlands 3 to celebrate Halloween and give all players some spooky goodies, with the only limiting factor (per the announcement post) being “Vault Hunters who have departed Pandora for the first time and started exploring the far reaches of space aboard Sanctuary III...”We’ve included the video (below) where  Borderlands 3 Creative Director, Paul Sage, spoke with Greg Miller and Fran Mirabella of Kinda Funny after a stream of the game. While the stream runs 1:25:19, you can find Sage beginning at 42:25 and the Bloody Harvest discussion at 55:55. However, as the content includes a new boss battle, location, costume(s), weapon(s), shields, grenade mods and more, you may prefer to read the full list on the official blog post here rather than watch the interview.Will Borderlands 3 be getting your Halloween gaming time, or will you, like me, be re-playing Donkey Kong Country 2 on Super Nintendo instead, as you do every year? Let us know in the comments below!

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Will Have Paid DLC

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Will Have Paid DLC

If you have been waiting for Luigi’s Mansion 3 October 31st, 2019 release date to come around, you may, like the rest of us, have been expecting Nintendo to announce any and all updates they could. However, Nintendo instead decided to keep in line with the game’s themes and be as quiet as a ghost as they placed a subtle announcement that there will be paid DLC that will add “new content” for the  ScareScraper and ScreamPark modes after launch. This announcement was placed on their website without any word via an official press release, Nintendo Direct, or even so much as a text message - talk about being “ghosted”.While both the “ScareScraper” and “ScreamPark” content are punny (Skyscraper and Theme Park, respectively) it’s unfortunate that Nintendo did not go to further lengths to explain to the waiting community what this post-launch content would bring, especially so close to the release date. Further, the website only lists the content as a sole bullet point, stating; “Paid DLC will come to Luigi's Mansion 3 in the future, adding new content to the ScareScraper and ScreamPark multiplayer modes.” Not only do we not know what it is, we also don’t know when it is - spooky.

Streets of Rogue Co-op Review

Much like a favorite meal, it is difficult choosing where to begin with Streets of Rogue. There are so many good choices that selecting just one thing feels darn near impossible. Fortunately, it also gives you plenty of reasons to come back for more. In a market saturated with pixelated indie titles, Streets of Rogue stands out as a must-play solo title and becomes instantly cemented as a classic when playing with others in co-op.

Arizona Sunshine “The Damned” DLC Announced

Arizona Sunshine will be receiving its second DLC, “The Damned,” come October 3rd, 2019. Priced at $4.99, this content adds a new mission to the story mode. Arizona Sunshine is currently available on both PC and PlayStation 4, though you do need a VR headset to play. The DLC appears to be available on both platforms on the day of launch as well.While this is not the first DLC for Arizona Sunshine, this content does precede the previous DLC, Dead Man, as the press release further states; “Preceding the events of Arizona Sunshine and Dead Man DLC, The Damned DLC will put players VR survival skills to the test as they step into the shoes of a brand new protagonist who has certainly seen better days. Tasked with an all-new and daunting mission to restore power to the military’s nuclear missile systems by reactivating the generators of a massive Arizonan hydroelectric dam, players get to explore a whole new environment with a unique sense of scale, all while facing off against hundreds of undead in an effort to stop the spread of the apocalypse in its tracks.” Will you be jumping into VR to head off to zombie-infested Arizona to kill the undead, or do you not like spooky things in October?

Undercrewed Is Now Available in Early Access

about X hours ago from

Last year, we got a brief glimpse at Undercrewed, an interesting co-op title that blends elements of FTL and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. At that time, David Strachan, the game's developer, was seeking funding for his Kickstarter (which was a success) to get enough money to help him finish development. Today, we all can enjoy the fruits of those efforts as the title arrives in Early Access!The core concept of the game is that you and your buddies place rooms (such as a bridge, engineering, guns, shields, etc) in a ship, take it out into a harsh, uncaring universe, and try to complete objectives while also fending off attacks. Rooms within the ship become active when a player (or A.I. bot if you don't have a full crew of 4 players) is standing in them, so if you want to raise shields and shoot at foes, you'll need people in those respective rooms. There aren't a ton of controls beyond just moving your in-game avatar, so it's something that's easy to pick up and play. Initially, there will be a handful of planets with specific objectives to complete, as well as the "Survival" mode, but more will be added as development continues.
