In one of those things where if it weren't so then something would be amiss in the universe, Gearbox has confirmed plans to continue the Borderlands franchise. Gearbox CEO and president Randy Pitchford said as much at a recent PAX East panel, "It's no secret, obviously there's going to be another Borderlands." Which is good to know.
Hey remember back at E3 last year when Bethesda announced that a competitive card game set in the Elder Scrolls universe was in development? Yeah, well we kind of forgot about it too. Mainly because nothing tangible was shown at the time. But now, as The Elder Scrolls: Legends goes into closed beta we have a new trailer that gives us a look at how it all works. One that will no doubt be familiar to Hearthstone players.
Which is to be expected when a game is published by Devolver Digital. But even so, with its anime-inspired look and wonderful art direction and animation, Ruiner (from developer Reikon Games) look like one to keep an eye out for. Set for release later this year on Windows, Mac, and Linux, the new teaser trailer for the game not only sets the tone for a frantic stylish action game but it's just, well, cool.
Mirror's Edge Catalyst, which according to my cats-as-historical-wartime-figures calendar was due for release late May. Well, not so anymore with the release date pushed back a few weeks until June 9 (June 7 for North America). In cat calendar terms that moves it from the tail-end (no pun intended) of kitten Julius Caeser, to the beginnings of Siamese Mao Zedong's rein of cuteness. Anyway, the reasons for the delay are due to the social play features of the game.

The arena shooter is making a serious comeback in the wake of the military shooter running the show for the past number of years, and it looks like the evolution is just right, while maintaining a sense of history to where it all began.
Nathan "nachosjustice" Lawrence recently took Boss Key Productions' debut arena shooter, LawBreakers, for a hands-on spin.
With a title that is more cyberpunk than a cyborg standing on the corner of a neon-lit rainy street at night, The Technomancer is actually a sci-fi action-RPG set on Mars. In a future where augmented humans and crazy creatures coexist in a Mad Max-inspired paradise. As to why this game isn't on the radar of most is anyone's guess, but the latest trailer which showcases both gameplay and the fairly impressive locations and characters certainly makes this more than an intriguing concept. One that is due pretty soon too, with a release date in June for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Bastion and Transistor, the first two games from indie studio Supergiant Games, were both visually stylish and wonderful games to boot. The studio's third game, Pyre, has just been revealed and it looks equally as good. Although it may be hard to figure out exactly what's going on in the trailer, like the studio's games before it, it will be a mix of classic game mechanics with wonderful hand-drawn art. But this time in the form of a party-based RPG, not unlike something we might have seen in the 16-bit era.
Some of the best moments from Elder Scrolls games have come from joining the Dark Brotherhood and taking part in quest-lines that feature more than their fair share of murder. And usually in a darkly funny fashion, like the quest in Oblivion where you attend a dinner party and then murder all the guests one by one as they scramble to try and figure out who done it. Funny stuff. Which is why its great to hear that the next bit of DLC coming to The Elder Scrolls online will feature the Dark Brotherhood, a game that's in dire need of some pitch black humour.
Yeah, the Xbox 360 is over 10 years old. It certainly doesn't feel that way, as over the years with numerous revisions both under the hood and on screen, the Xbox 360 grew from strength to strength into one of the most beloved consoles of all time. From the blade dash to avatars to Xbox Live Arcade and a long list of brilliant games like Gears of War and Mass Effect, the legacy of the Xbox 360 will be felt for a number of years. And after 10 years on the market Microsoft has discontinued production on the console.
