HANDS-ON: Xenomorph, hunter and human taken for a brutal deathmatch test drive.
Borderlands is pretty awesome. Don’t believe us? Then why not read why you should fork out for it in our Super Review. Adverse to the idea of having to shell out actual human coinage for a game? Then, rejoice. Because we’ve got copies of the game to give away, along with a super sexy PS3 Slim and Borderlands-branded t-shirts and caps.

The history of advertisements for 3D movies is an embarrassing testament to how silly people look in 3D glasses. A typical example shows a slack jawed audience while a poorly rendered tyrannosaurus breaks free from its two dimensional cage, terrifying the crowd with its jaws wide open, ready to bite everyone’s head off. Welcome to the third dimension, bitches. We hope you were wearing diapers.
“Shepard! But... but you’re dead!” cries a baffled Asari crime lord having been backed into a corner by our hero. “I got better,” replies Shepard, as cool as a penguin’s bum. It’s not a dialogue choice, it’s right there in the cutscene; otherwise we’d have chosen the option along the lines of “I know, after that E3 trailer I’m just as confused as you about the whole thing."
This year's premier wrestling game, SmackDown vs Raw 2010, is just a few days old, but we're already filled with giddy excitement for the future. One of our favorite features mentioned in the review is the online community used for sharing created content, chief among them user-created wrestlers.
Left 4 Dead 2, Valve’s cooperative zombie shooter, has had to overcome two skeptical parties: the portion of Left 4 Dead players concerned that promised free content for the original game had been replaced with a rushed, full-price sequel, and Valve co-founder Gabe Newell. “Gabe’s got a good amount of healthy skepticism about anything we do,” says Chet Faliszek.
Death and video games go together like a big heart attack-baiting burger and an extra five slices of cheddar. But just because they’re the best of mates, it doesn’t mean certain characters should go looking for the Grim Reaper through their own reckless actions. Sadly, that’s exactly want the following group of death-wishers all do. And whether it’s through their own stupidity, being huge wimps or just dying in embarrassing fashion, these guys
We made no secret about our love for the original Assassin’s Creed. We scored it glowingly, took some flak from you guys, and stood proudly by our 10 like a Christ-like figure up against an inquisition of haters. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit much.
