Every now and again a piece of news comes along which reminds me not just why I love video games, but I love everybody who plays them. This is certainly one of them. Thanks to the powers of the internet, there’s a chance for you can dress your heavy as the only man big enough to take down Reggie, Gaben. Link after the break.
Record breaking Xbox Live Arcade game is the second game this week to be outright banned in Australia. The ABC (Australian Board of Classification) has banned it for the excessive drug use. In a post on the developers forums, developer Undead Jeff announced that they have began working with Microsoft to change the names of the drugs in the game.
A Youtube channel fittingly named UberCoolStuffLdnOnt, has posted a pretty awesome video. How it’s never been thought of before is beyond me since it seems such a good idea. Using a Gym Ball, two optical mice, the guts of a DS3 and an Arduino, you can roll the god damn thing around in it’s base and control what’s happening on screen.
Gearbox have released the first five minutes of the fourth and final piece of DLC for Borderlands 2. Called Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s keep, the DLC will see players partaking in a Dungeons and Dragons inspired game hosted by the lover her or hate her character, Tina.
It’s in the nature of the video game industry to run something successful dead into the ground and then slide on it’s bedraggled corpse like a skateboard until it comes to a stop and won’t shift any more. I don’t think anybody believed Halo would be a trilogy, remember five years ago when we we’re finishing the fight? It would be way to romantic for a video game to stop while it’s ahead.
You probably already know that we here at EG don’t hold the Ass Creed games to the highest regard. It amazed me to hear that 4 months before the game is due to be released, you can already pre order the season pass from the Best Buy website. First of all, I have a big problem with Season Passes, it just makes no sense to me that people would be willing to part with there cash, on merely the promise that the content that they’ll give you will be worth it.
Unfortunately there’s no place Valve won’t take their Team Fortress license and today sees yet another crossover with the title, today it’s indie hit, Surgeon Simulator 2013.
