Another weekend, another collection of snippets that came in while we were AFK.
- Borderlands: Gearbox have rolled out the first update for the console versions of Borderlands, addressing a number of launch bugs. The fixes include improved loading times, corrections to the reversed d-pad mapping and Lilith's phase strike ability. Stop by these threads on the Gearbox forums for the changelogs for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. No word on patch-love for the PC version as yet, but one would hope it's not too far behind.
- Champions Online: Currently winding up their free weekend period after celebrating the in-game Bloodmoon Halloween festivities, developer Cryptic Studios has cheerfully announced that their superhero-themed MMO has topped 1 million user-created characters although no word on actual subscriber numbers. They've also released a new trailer boasting a few of their review accolades.
- Doom: As promised, id Software have released a port of their legendary first person shooter, the original Doom to the iPhone App-store. Disapointingly it doesn't include Doom 2, but you can play both 4-player deathmatch multiplayer as well as cooperative. Early reports also seem to indicate that the control scheme is much better than the clumsy Duke Nukem 3D iPhone offering. Doom Classic on iPhone is priced at $8.99 on the Aussie App Store and weighs in at 76.8MB.
