  • Blog Post: Editorial: The Aliens Colonial Marines Lawsuit Is Wrong

    Aliens: Colonial Marines will likely be remembered as one of the biggest disappointments of this generation of gaming.

  • Blog Post: The Writers' Room: Revealing The Art And Science Of Game Writing

    Whether we're following Mario as he leaps through pipes to rescue an abducted princess or sculpting the saga of Commander Shepard in the midst of a universe-spanning war, most video games have stories to tell. Even Ms. Pac-Man – a game about a hockey puck that eats pellets – provides... More
  • Blog Post: Test Chamber – Aliens: Colonial Marines

    We had high hopes for Gearbox's latest game, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Unfortunately, it's a bit of a disaster. Watch as Dan, Reiner, and I wade through the game for a while and see for yourself.

  • Blog Post: Gearbox On The Past, Present, And Future Of Co-Op Play

    With the original Borderlands, Gearbox presented one of the most seamless, accessible co-op experiences seen to date on consoles. It was great fun playing solo, but the addition of a friend (or three) really served to make it something special. It'll come as no surprise that cooperative play will... More
  • Blog Post: Hands-On With Borderlands' General Knoxx

    Yesterday we were surprised to find out that the third DLC add-on for Borderlands, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, was only one day away from launch (for Xbox 360 owners, at least). Usually Gearbox announces its release dates weeks in advance to whip Borderlands fans up into a frenzy for new content... More
  • Blog Post: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot Hands-on Preview

    Even before Gearbox started pumping out DLC, Borderlands was a massive game, complete with tons of ground to cover, bosses to slay, and loot to claim. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned added to the wondrous grind, sending players on an epic quest to acquire 250 zombie brains, among other things. But while... More
