And that FINAL final boss? I know Borderlands likes bullet-sponges, but man... that was too much.

Oh, no disrespect to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at all. Fever To Tell is an all-timer, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a perennial favorite of mine. (I saw them live during the Mosquito era!)

Such a cool tidbit, albeit one that is now giving nightmares (daymeres?) of a dino-sized crow.

You’re putting this on my computer screen before noon?!? Please go to the principal’s office.

I totally hear that, but in this case, there’s a newsworthiness to running a piece sooner rather than later. Pre-launch, the cat suit was hyped to the moon; there was a whole Game Informer video and spread and everything, which, understandably, generated a lot of interest. It’s helpful for people to know that, sorry, Read more

Ah, I was afraid of that, parrying being my Achilles heel in this game.

Damn, this actually should’ve been tip #1. Even worse, the two Lecrae songs—which have been in my head all week—seem to be unavailable on Spotify to U.S. listeners!

Oh, ditto. I actually just got my first external storage this week! (To see how things work with next-gen consoles.) I’m not too worried about these early years. But consider how much larger games are now compared to 2013. What will happen between now and 2030, at which point developers will be unshackled from having Read more

Ah, yeah, that gameplay loop doesn’t change much. It get more complicated, once your characters start leveling up and you reach higher gear (heh) tiers. But the whole mission-menu-mission-menu structure holds strong.

Well said. This times a thousand. The idea that one person’s experience or preference is “normal” ipso facto suggests that another’s is not—a dated way of thinking that this industry would do well to snap out of.

I’d have to look into it more, but after I switched my home Xbox today to my Series X, my Xbox One stopped being my home Xbox. When I kicked it offline, I couldn’t access the downloaded games purchased by my account. So that functionality is down. (I can’t test the other accounts at the moment...) Read more

Yup! Ultimate ($15) covers both console and PC. But if you just have the $10-monthly PC tier, you won’t be able to access it on console.

I really like it! The texture on the triggers is fantastic. Same goes for the grips. It’s both familiar and new, kind of like you’re replacing a well-worn pair of boots with a fresh-out-of-the-box pair from the same brand. Read more

Ah, you’re right—that could’ve been more clear. I meant this mostly as a tip for those who have never used an external drive before and are now using one for the first time. Apologies for the confusion. Read more

Correction: I am an idiot, and also apparently made a mess in my living room for no reason. Turns out, I hadn’t triple-checked to make sure the game was loading from a full stop. The real time is 40 seconds—still damn fast, but not as next-next-gen as the initial figure implied. Sorry about that, folks!
