Gearbox Reveals Three New, Weird-Looking Battleborn Characters

about X hours ago from

In a post on the official Battleborn website, 2K spills the beans on three new Battleborn characters: Whiskey Foxtrot, Kelvin, and Shayne and Aurox – a supernatural teen/demon duo.

Of the three new characters, Whiskey Foxtrot seems like the most traditional, packing a tactical assault rifle as his main weapon, along with explosive abilities that include sticky bombs and a scrap cannon.

Kelvin, on the other hand, is a melee-focused ice golem that takes on rivals with ice fists, a bite attack (appropriately called Chomp), and a defensive ice wall. Kelvin can also turn into a gaseous cloud that can freeze his enemies when he passes through them.

Jason Voorhees Gets Funny In This Motion-Captured Kills Video

Friday The 13th: The Game has raised over $885,000 during its Kickstarter campaign so far, and now it's in full production. That means a lot of animations need to be made, which is where this cool yet comical motion capture video comes in.

The mo-cap session shows several new and classic kills performed by Kain Hodder, who played Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th: Part 7 through Jason X. Over 400 animations were captured during the shoot, which means you'll probably be able to murder camp counselors in quite a few creative ways in the final game. Watch it for yourself below.

Training Day: Why The Opening Missions Have Us Interested

about X hours ago from

The Hitman series has seen some drastic changes over the years. Agent 47 took a long hiatus after the release of Blood Money, only to reappear with Absolution in 2012. Absolution reworked the Hitman formula quite a bit, but some of those changes were disappointing to longtime fans. A few of its open levels rivaled previous Hitman games in terms of size and NPC counts, but roughly half of Absolution’s levels were designed to be more linear, including several “escape” sequences that didn’t even have targets to kill. Despite Absolution's problems, though, it introduced a much better control scheme and other improvements to things like hiding bodies and using disguises.

After spending three days playing the closed beta for the upcoming Hitman, I was both intrigued and apprehensive. The beta only included two missions, but the structure that surrounds those missions has the makings of a uniquely great Hitman game. It feels like the technical advancements of Absolution but more focused on the freedom that past Hitman titles gave you. That managed to get me thinking about the future of the full version, and what it could do to make it the ideal combination of old and new.
