I must start this post by saying that it had been a while since I got really excited about playing a game as I’ve gotten playing Borderlands. It hasn’t been long since I’ve owned the game, I got it from the PSN store when the bundle came out on July 19th for only $20 ($15 if you have PS+, I think it’s still available so if you didn’t get it then go get it NOW).
Anyway, the game is great, challenging, nice to look at, creative, has nice RPG elements, LOTS of loot and an enormous amounts of replay value. I can tell you that I’ve been playing the game non-stop since I bought it, with the only exception being a brief GT5 multiplayer with Jay and Dean147. I’ve finished the game twice now (it gives you two distinct play-throughs with different difficult levels) and I’m not stopping anytime soon. I still need to get all the way to level 69 and I just can’t stop looking for better gear to annihilate those poor bastards. Ok, I guess you all got the general idea, Borderlands is above awesome.
First of all, be warned, as this is a long post and its many inquiries might feel unanswered at end, but if you also feel like the industry is increasing the size of the cookie factory and you keep getting the same batch of bland chocolate chip cookies, you might like it. Without further ado, let’s begin:
What is the most innovative game you’ve seen lately? That’s a question I won’t try to answer at this point, I’ll let you guys think about it for a couple of minutes… OK, so what is the first thing that came up on your mind? Not so simple, isn’t it?
I’ve noticed (and probably most others have) that the most noteworthy titles these days are sequels, and that got me thinking, is that all we want to see? I own a very small collection of PS3 games (about 16) and astonishingly, 50% of those games are sequels to games featured in the same platform; if I consider sequels to a series, that number jumps to 70%. It’s incredible how many developers we’ve seen lately seem so scared of trying something different. If you just think about your “top 10” most expected titles this year, you’ll see what I’m talking about. Probably 90% of those games are sequels.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been on my “most anticipated titles of 2011” since I first heard of it, so anything related to that game makes me really excited, however, it had been a couple months since I had seen something substantial about it. This has now changed.
Bethesda published at their forum a Q & A made from fan questions, there are 25 points discussed in total, and I suggest everyone slightly interested in the game to read that.
In my opinion these are the most interesting/new things I’ve seen on the interview:
A great news for all hack and slash lovers and more so to those who specially appreciate Diablo (and perhaps don’t own a super awesome gaming rig). Blizzard is hiring a “Senior Software Engineer” to be working exclusively for Diablo III development on the PS3. Amongst the qualifications, at least one AAA PS3 title is required. Job responsibilities include:
To all zombie lovers out there, September 6th (North America) and September 9th (everywhere else) is a date that should be marked on your calendar and it’s pretty close.
Dead Island will (hopefully) bring the best of FPS and RPG games into a world full of Zombies, basically, everything you (well, actually me) ever hoped for.
In this new E3 trailer we have more gameplay footage, as well as what apparently is the begging of the game.
If you want to keep an eye out for everything Dead Island related check their official Facebook page for all the bloody details. Also, for the release date announcement, be sure to read Madagasca’s post here! If you haven’t checked out Part 1 yet, be sure to head over to Oly’s post.
Keep in mind any videos during E3 will be embedded on the post itself and not on the main page
