Launching today on Apples iTunes APP store, you can pick up a quite impressive looking overhead shooter. Borderlands Legends. The game seems to focus on in game cash to buy new weapons instead of gathering loot, but does include leveling up and skill tree goodness. Starring the playable characters from the original Borderlands, gamers play through randomized missions which should hopefully keep replayability up.

The iPhone sized version of the game is $4.99, while the iPad edition will cost you $6.99.

If you’re like me, you enjoy making your own game content. It’s not always complex though, sometimes it’s just level creating fun. Take a look at what Bigpoint is working on and sign up for a free account on

Basically Gameglobe sounds like a level creator with freedom to play other gamers content, as well as share your own. It looks really impressive for a game running in a browser and with good community support should be a fun time!

Sony’s Japan Studio released a new trailer today for Puppeteer featuring some awesome Halloween fun for the holidays. Puppeteer was announced back in August and features a boy who was carried off by the Moon Bear King into Castle Gristlestein where he’s transformed into a puppet. He escapes and ventures off to retrieve his disembodied head. As seen in the trailer here, the scissors seem to be his main defense and a way to interact with the environment.

The trailer focuses on Hallowee Ville which is just part of the Moon Realm the story takes place in. The Art Director at SCE Worldwide Studios promises many surprising and diverse locations in the game. This PS3 title’s release date is still to be announced.

In an effort to exorcise Monty, Broken Joysticks’ official demonically possessed bulldog, I’ve been continuing my Halloween tradition of replaying some of my favorite horror games. Unfortunately, my efforts have only empowered “demonty,” but I’ve gone too far to turn back now. (more…)

In news that will no doubt flow over into video games, and makes one wonder what in the world future Kingdom Hearts games will include now that Disney has both Marvel titles and Lucas Arts titles, Disney has purchased Lucas Film. News has it to the tune of $4.05 Billion.

This is very surprising news including that Disney plans to release Star Wars episode VII by 2015. I’m actually skeptical about all of this still since it seems very surreal.

News media is quoting George Lucas as saying, “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers.”

What do you think?
