Borderlands 2 VR Shoves Pandora In Your Face

Grab your guns and get into Pandora once again with Borderlands 2 VR on PSVR, coming out December 14.

Unlike the original, the title doesn't feature co-op, but developer Gearbox has tweaked some of the co-op aspects of the original to suit this game's single-player design. For instance, in Borderlands 2 VR players can simultaneously drive a vehicle (using the PlayStation Move motion controllers) and aim its guns (using the headset).

The game also includes a bullet-time slow-mo feature called BAMF Time (BadAss Mega Fun Time) that is included as an upgrade to existing abilities.

Bandai Namco Releases Part One Of Its Soulcalibur Documentary

Soulcalibur VI releases next week, but right now Bandai Namco is turning up the nostalgia. They shared part one of Soulcalibur VI Swords and Souls: The Rise of Soulcalibur on their YouTube channel this morning. Before getting your hands on the latest entry in the series, Bandai Namco invites you to look back on the making of the series in this multi-part documentary.

Focusing on the earliest days of Soulcalibur, this first part, The Stage of History, initially examines what set this fighting game apart from other games on the market. Bandai Namco’s brand and community adviser, Markman, explains that in his eyes Soulcalibur was “the first true 3D fighting game.” Its unique weapon-based fighting style and fast pace are also cited as reasons for its large fandom and competitive community. Many of the most well-known competitive players make an appearance in the documentary, from Aris to Kayane. Bandai Namco also dives into the games world-wide appeal and the international rivalry Soulcalibur sparked between France and America. The documentary stresses Soulcalibur II’s popularity and seems ready to make Soulcalibur VI this competitive favorite’s successor.
