Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition Re-Releasing With New Improvements

about X hours ago from

Gearbox teased that it would have multiple announcements during its PAX East panel, and one of them has turned out to center around the original Borderlands. The studio has announced a re-released version of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. It releases on April 3.

This news isn't a complete surprise, as a Korean ratings board listing from last year suggested this game was coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Gearbox tried to run the trailer revealing the news during its panel, but it seemingly ran into technical issues. Despite that, the trailer was rolled out on YouTube anyway, and you can see it below.

"With new weapons, visual upgrades, character heads, gold chests and keys, plus all 4 add-on packs, you can enjoy all of the content from one of the Most Acclaimed Games of its era, now in one sweet and deliciously modern package!" a description reads.

Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition Adds More Weapons, Improvements In New Release

about X hours ago from

In the lead up to PAX East, Gearbox teased that we'd potentially see multiple new games unveiled. Despite some technical issues hampering the reveal during the panel, One of those has turned out to be an enhanced re-release of an existing game, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. This version of the original game in the Borderlands series is seeing a new release on current-gen platforms, but it's not a mere port--it also packs in new content, including more weapons, in addition to a variety of other improvements, and it releases next week.

This is described as the "brand-new definitive version." It's set for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and features the same basic content as the original game, complete with all four of its DLC packs: The Zombie Island of Doctor Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.

The Game of the Year Edition will feature visual improvements suited to the new platforms. Gearbox boasts that PS4 and Xbox One X players (and presumably those with adequate PC hardware) can play in 4K and HDR, but all platforms will include "improved lighting, textures, and character models."

Google Stadia: Hands-On Impressions With The New Cloud Streaming Service

about X hours ago from

Google Stadia, a cloud-based platform that streams games from a remote data center to nearly any device, is designed to work on laptops, phones, tablets, PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, and TVs with Chromecast. All graphics processing is relegated to off-site hardware, so all you need is a strong internet connection. It's a technologically impressive concept, and we were eager to be one of the first to experience it on the GDC 2019 showroom floor. Both Assassin's Creed Odyssey and 2016's Doom were playable at the event, and though they ran and looked great, I couldn't help but notice one significant shortcoming.

Keep in mind, my hands-on time was at the Google stations on the GDC show floor, so your mileage may vary. There are a lot variables at play in addition to the internet connection, and these are early playable builds under unknown conditions. Display response time is another factor that we couldn't account for during the hands-on demo, and it's an important spec to consider, especially for a PC-like experience--these were not gaming-grade monitors at the demo stations.

Every Major Apple Keynote Announcement: Apple Arcade, Streaming Services, And More

about X hours ago from

Apple's latest keynote, the Show Time event, brought with it news on an array of products and services coming to the company's slew of devices. However, unlike most Apple events, the focus was not on new hardware, but instead on subscription-based services--all designed to deliver entertainment, video game, and magazine content.

We've condensed all of the major news for you below, and we also have a roundup of everything we know about Apple Arcade.

The centerpiece of the announcements was Apple TV, which came in two major ways. The Apple TV app is getting a major revision called Apple TV Channels that will allow users to directly access shows from providers like HBO, Starz, Amazon, and Hulu. You'll also be able to purchase shows on demand. It's coming this May, and the app will also expand to smart TVs and players like Roku and Amazon Fire TV in the spring.

Apple Arcade Detailed: New Game Subscription Service Coming 2019

about X hours ago from

Apple is expanding its presence in the games industry with its own game subscription service called Apple Arcade--designed to provide access to a variety of titles whether you want to play on mobile, desktop, or in the living room. Unlike Google's Stadia, Apple Arcade won't be a cloud streaming service, though. A brief overview trailer of Apple Arcade is linked below, and if you're looking for more details, check out everything we know about Apple Arcade.

Essentially, Apple's service takes the form of a monthly subscription that provides unlimited access to a curated selection of paid titles on the App Store; it sounds sort of like Xbox Game Pass. Development partners include Sega, Konami, Disney, Sumo Digital, and Cartoon Network, among others, and more than 100 exclusive games will become part of the service. Additional games will also be added "all the time," the company said, although an exact cadence for new releases was not shared.

New Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Trailer Delivers Stunning Monster Action

about X hours ago from

Godzilla might be one of the most famous movie monsters of all time, but there are plenty of other incredible creatures in this long-running franchise. King Ghidorah, Rodan, and Mothra are all classic monsters from Japanese Godzilla movies, and they will make their Hollywood debut this summer in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. A new trailer has now been released.

The latest promo features loads of new footage. It opens with some stunning shots of three-headed King Ghidorah, the winged Rodan, and moth-like Mothra. The trailer reveals that scientists from monster-tracking agency Monarch plan to set Godzilla free from his aquatic prison to fight these giant threats--as one character says, "It's a good thing he's on our side." The movie looks absolutely stunning--check the trailer out below.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is directed by Michael Dougherty, whose previous credits include the Christmas monster movie Krampus. It stars Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), Kyle Chandler (Game Night), and Millie Bobbie Brown (Stranger Things), plus Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Ken Watanabe (Inception), and O'Shea Jackson Jr (Straight Outta Compton). It hits theaters on May 31, 2019. For more check out everything we know about Godzilla: King of the Monsters, plus this recent trailer.

New Free Pokemon Available Now For Ultra Sun And Moon

about X hours ago from

Pokemon Sword and Shield may be on the horizon, but The Pokemon Company isn't done giving away freebies for the series' latest 3DS installments, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Players with a Pokemon Bank subscription can now claim two more free Pokemon in the seventh-gen games, and these are a little different from the ones you can normally catch.

For a limited time, you'll be able to receive a free Oranguru and Passimian by signing into Pokemon Bank. What makes these particular Pokemon special is they come with their Hidden Abilities, which normally aren't obtainable in the games. Passimian's is Defiant, which raises its Attack any time one of its stats is lowered by the opponent, while Oranguru's is Symbiosis, which will pass the item it's holding to an ally in Double or Triple Battles when that Pokemon consumes its own held item.

You can claim Oranguru and Passimian in either of the Ultra games or the original Sun and Moon versions. To download them, you'll need to insert your game of choice in the 3DS and access the Pokemon Bank app. After you see a notification that the gifts are available, you'll need to open the game, then pick the Pokemon up from the deliveryman waiting inside any Pokemon Center. It's unclear how long this distribution will run, so you'll want to act fast.
