I’ve had quite a bit of time now with State of Decay and it’s quite different from the demo once you get into the main bulk of the game. The intro can be compared almost do Dead Rising with scavenging while the main game itself is a bit more complex.

For one, the most important rule here is that once a character dies, they’re gone forever. So you might not want to get too attached to your survivors. Fortunately, if you do lose everyone, a seemingly random survivor is generated for you to take over. You may be tempted to restart the game over, but it’s actually probably best to push on and accept this as more of a story element. (more…)

Today is the day! The final piece of Season Pass DLC for Borderlands 2 has hit the marketplace just waiting for you to download it. If you’re feeling conflicted on whether or not to buy this (if you don’t already have the Season Pass), you can check out this developer diary and see what they have to say about it.

Personally I’m stoked about it because as I’ve stated many times before, it combines two of my favorite things gaming related: Borderlands & Fantasy.

To celebrate the releases of “Tiny Tina’s Assault On Dragon Keep”, Gearbox has released a launch trailer:

The fighting game community (FGC) has grown from holding local events to smaller venues to occupying ballrooms at four-star establishments with talent from all across the globe attending. Major sponsors such as Capcom, Namco Bandai, and others are responsible for the development of some of the world’s most famous franchises in gaming, and are showcased at a central tournament featuring the top fighting talent from across the world. With major prize pools, fighting games are now reaching a platform that can be compared to traditional eSports.

Each week, I’ll be posting interviews I’ve had the pleasure of conducting with members of the fighting game community. The interviews will touch upon their history in the FGC, where they got their start, and what they’d like to see from video games in general.

This weeks guest is Kim Le, better known to some as Keemmay (yes she is a girl and play fighting games, they do exist!). (more…)

Respawn Entertainment, you know…the group of people that left Infinity Ward and Call Of Duty to pursue their own visions, have released a developer diary today of the game Titanfall. This, in many gamers eyes, is one of the big exclusives that Microsoft has up its’ sleeve.

Set in a distant frontier torn apart by war, Titanfall gives players the freedom to switch between fighting as elite assault Pilots or agile, heavily armored, 24-foot tall Titans. The advanced warfare of tomorrow gives you the freedom to fight your way as both elite assault Pilot and agile, heavily armored Titan. Online gameplay is core to the Titanfall experience, as fast-paced multiplayer action is combined with heroic moments from traditional campaign mode.

In this developer diary Drew McCoy, among other developers, want to show gamers what makes their game different from other shooters out there – and not just the shiny graphics. (more…)

The final piece of DLC in the Borderlands 2 series is nearly here. In fact, it releases next week. If you happened to miss out on the Krieg gameplay video, I highly suggest you check it out here.

I’m anticipating Assault On Dragon Keep to be the best of the four DLC’s for quite a few reasons. The most important one is because it’s in Tiny Tina’s ever imaginative head. Yeah, imagine living inside that kids head… Another reason is because this download is the Borderlands version of Dungeons & Dragons, complete with dragons, wizards, golems, and more. Everything you could ever want!

To hear what the developers have to say about Assault On Dragon Keep, keep reading after the jump.
