Writeup on the new Borderlands class Zer0 the Assassin: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/121/1219459p1.html

*snip from the article*

"Like the rest of Borderlands 2's classes, the Assassin's skill set can be tailored to your preferred play style. Want to concentrate on close-up strikes? Long-distance sniper shots? You can with the Assassin, which according to Gearbox is the only class with a clearly defined weapons preference. If you really like sniping, it sounds like the Assassin could be a good choice."


This game is a blast. It's a fairly quick JRPG (unless you're a completionist, then you'll be playing for a year or two), that features some of the coolest game mechanics I've seen. The combat has you using two different characters on each screen at the same time; one controlled by the D-Pad, and the other via the touch screen and mic. It takes some getting used to, but the difficulty curve lets you learn it before it gets harder. The other cool mechanic is the item system. Different items and attacks have different brands, and different brands have more influence in different areas of the map giving boosts or handicaps depending on what you equip. It's really...

So much to do in this game!

I'm in the middle of about 10 quest trees, with probably about 30 side quests on going. I've decided to clean up my side quests before continuing on with the main quests, as there's a lot of "Go Talk To ___" type things just cluttering the quests screen. But all of them end up being enjoyable.

One quest that I'm in the middle of is following a dog that's talking to me. He and his owner had a falling out, and he wants me to help him talk to his owner. I believe his owner is some sort of demon/demigod type character, and might even be the dog itself, who's just playing a trick on me. I was following the dog, but got distracted by an interesting...

I wonder when Doom 4 is coming out? Finding this is in Rage made we wonder.

So, I'm kind of a Metroid addict. Ever since the first time I played through the first one, being the very first NES game I ever played through to completion (even before Super Mario Bros or The Legend of Zelda), I had to pick this up. I bought it a few months ago, if I'm not mistaken it was released in late 2010 or early 2011, so Its been around. I don't know anyone else who bought it, or even played it so I went into the experience completely blind. I'll tell you, this is a very refreshing take on the whole Metroid history.

Ever since the Gamecube (even on the DS) Metroid games have been largely First-Person. A very cool departure from the original side scrolling,... Read All


After pre-ordering Rage for $60 and playing it on the PS3 I was a bit disappointed with the single player. Loading took way too long, often I would die and have to re-load back an hour of gameplay. The game was frustrating on the console. I found that the legends of the wasteland was fun for co-op, really fun, but the single player wasn't.

Recently I got it on the PC and I have to say its MUCH MUCH more fun than the console counterparts. Quicksave exists by hitting F5. The game is easier with a mouse which means I can actually hit things I shoot at. The graphics are nicer and the texture pop-in is less noticeable. I'm not entirely sure of all f the reasons why but Rage... Read All

Since this game recently went free to play I decided to install it and give it a shot because the price was right.

After a bit of downloading I installed the game and created an account. Process wasn't horrible and I was greeted with some options for creating an account.

I wanted to roll a Wizard or Mage so I clicked the EQ2 version of that. Couldn't play as that character for free so I clicked a less fun class to play. I honestly don't remember what I was bummed I couldn't roll a Wizard/Mage. I was then presented with a screen to pick some hair color and some other stuff I didn't care about. I clicked random as much as I could but it would have been better to just click... Read All

I just tried out the Final Fantasy XIII-2 demo. I have to say, this dude is annoying, kupo! I always thought Moogles were cute and amusing in the games where they didn't have any recorded dialog. They aren't supposed to sound like 8-year-old girls, kupo! The moogle is really useful to have around though.

Now, on to the meat and potatoes: This is a lot of fun. Random encounters are back, but they are easily escapable if you aren't interested in fighting. The preemptive attack is done much more cleanly, giving you the opportunity to attack before battle mode is activated.

Speaking of the battle system-- say what you want about FFXIII, there are plenty of bad things to say... Read All
