Trailer Park: If It’s Assassin’s Creed THREE, Why Have There Been FIVE Console Games?

Dude, I don’t know. Math I guess. BUT! This trailer will get you caught up if you’re in the dark as to who this guy in the white hoodie is & why he’s so insistent on parkouring all over the place while stabbing everyone. Also, why does he seem to be a time traveler? Answers below chief.

We (Don’t) Have to Go Back!

From Fake Anything comes this somewhat cartoonish but still super detailed map of Tamriel. It’s an interesting twist on my (virtual, buggy) homeland from last winter. I’m still annoyed that those of us on the PS3 aren’t going to be seeing any DLC anytime soon but maybe that’s not a bad thing…I don’t know if I have the time to get completely absorbed back into that game. Do you know how many charts I drew up, mapping out my smithing & enchanting strategies? I had Skyrim To-Do lists, fer #@#%-sake. On second thought…Skyrim, it was super fun. But you stay over there in the played games pile. GIVE ME BACK MY LIFE.

Score One For the Good Guys: Borderlands 2 Arrives!

The end result of my tussle with the Honey Badger of Video Game Retailers? VICTORY BY 1ST ROUND GOGOPLATA!!
ALL THE GUNS

Also? I SUCK at Photoshop. Anyone out there want to give me some pointers?

P.S. If you ever do encounter an actual honey badger, rubber guard & submission grappling is probably not your best defense. I think it would turn your crotch into chili in approx. 4 seconds.

Hungry Hungry Koopas!

Borderlands 2: Exponential Excitement Increase

This weekend I pulled the trigger (Ed. note: really? Ugh.) and pre-ordered Borderlands 2. Not going to lie, I almost bought the $99 Deluxe Vault Hunter’s Edition.  Somehow my mania abated long enough to navigate over to the “normal” version and hit purchase.

Dumb

VS.

Smart

So now I’ve EIGHT WHOLE DAYS of waiting until the game arrives. Luckily, Gearbox Software has me (and by extension, you) covered, with interactive skill trees where you can spec out your perfect character.

Zero, the Assassin & likely my first playthrough

The original Borderlands saw me play through twice (as well as one time through the now de rigueur zombie expansion) with my character, Mordecai the Hunter & his/my trusty bloodwing named, uh, Bloodwing.  Suffice it to say, I liked the first Borderlands and I am really expecting big things form the sequel**. Especially looking forward to see what improvements they make this go ’round (and am also hoping that my previous Borderlands save bestows some sort of in-game bonus…).

Here’s the launch date trailer to whet/re-whet your appetite:

**Let’s hope this isn’t one of those games that I’m looking forward to for months, buy, and am incredibly disappointed in, like: Assassin’s Creed, Kane & Lynch, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Brink, Rage
