Alright, confession time. I haven’t had this big of a guilty pleasure since I downloaded Miley Cirus’ The Climb back in 2009 (Which I played over Ventrillo during WoW raid bosses to aggravate the hell out of our main healer). At leas that’s what I keep telling myself…
But Borderlands? Keep it coming! This franchise is fun, addicting, and I don’t feel guilty when I walk away from it for a month. I loved Skyrim; I will always love Skyrim. But take a a couple weeks off and I had no clue what I was doing, or who I was supposed to sacrifice someone to, or what skill I was building.
Set to debut sometime in late 2014, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place before the storyline of the original in the series, and focuses mainly on Handsome Jack and his own personal bag of problems. [Click here to read on!]
Back on April 3rd, which seems like a long time ago (this is our 100th post, believe it or not!), we published an amazing trailer for Naught Dog’s upcoming adventure game, “The Last of Us“, which may look like a new Uncharted, but according to the developers, it’s quite different. Not like that would be a bad thing, but you know what I mean. Looking ahead to the near future, “The Last of Us” will hit store shelves on June 14th, and will be an exclusive title for the PS3; sorry Xbox’ers. Like you needed more depressing news after Monday’s debacle? Naughty Dog has released brand new demo discs to many of the latest news outlets, which means savory new, HD game play footage that you absolutely must-see. Did I mention the game play video is more than 15 minutes long? You’re welcome.
As I’ve stated on a few occasions here at SQ, I’m not a huge fan of zombie shows, games, movies, etc. I’m not saying I hate ’em, but I’m not borderline obsessed with the genre like much of ‘Merica is these days. I missed the Walking Dead season 2 finale recently (hell, I missed the entire season), and apparently I also missed the first game play trailer for the upcoming zombie and PS3 blockbuster, The Last of Us. To give you the bottom line up front: The Last of Us looks absolutely awesome. Everything about this trailer seems very well put together, and I realize it is only a trailer, but this looks like its going to be a must-buy. The acting and voice overs look and sound great, which is rare in a video game, and most importantly the game play looks phenomenal. I haven’t been excited about an upcoming game for a while now, but I’ve got June 14th (official release date) marked down on my calendar.
Have you finished Starcraft II’s campaign yet? No? Well don’t feel bad, because neither have I. Let me clear the air here before I get bombarded with hate mail from the two of you who actually read SQ: I love Starcraft II. Free time has not been on my side as of late, but I fire up SC2 every chance I get, even though I still [Click here to read on!]
God of War: Ascension’s Super Bowl trailer reminded everybody just how important God of War remains. Reminiscent of the original Gears of War trailer’s debut, Ellie Goulding’s angelic voice plays the perfect foil to Kratos’ being: tainted and scarred. [Click here to read on!]
