about X hours ago from

If you are familiar with Tripwire Interactive’s first Killing Floor game you know that the series isn’t just about killing zombies, it’s about killing them in the most delightfully gory ways possible. Unsatisfied with the levels of viscera in the first game, the developers plan to take the zombie bloodbath to new heights in Killing Floor 2, as detailed in their newest developer diary “The Gore: Part 1." 

In this new video the developers explain the three pillars of the game: Bullets, Blades, and Blood (blood being the most important of course). You'll also get a look at how dismemberment works in the new M.E.A.T. System. Tripwire explains that the M.E.A.T. (massive evisceration and trauma) System is actually a bunch of systems working together to create the most spectacular zombie mutilation possible.

The Final Making Of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Is All About The Weapons

about X hours ago from

With Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel out next week, 2K Games is wrapping up its four-part behind the scenes look at the game. They’ve covered the partnership between Gearbox and 2K Australia, moving the action to the moon, and the characters. Today, we get to look more closely at the weapons.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel adds one new weapon type (lasers) and a new element (cryo). There are four different lasers that all take cues from sci-fi stalwarts. 

Maliwan lasers riff on Ghostbusters proton packs, with beams that oscillate and dance, but are continuous streams. Hyperion’s are more like a rail gun. Dahl is your typical laser blaster ripped right out of Star Wars. Finally, Tediore weapons operate like laser shotguns, splitting into multiple beams.
