Borderlands Level Cap Update Coming Soon, Gearbox Pretty Promise

Are you still playing Borderlands? Thought you might be

That game is big. In fact, if we didn't have a back-log of about 5,264,631 games to review [slight exaggeration - Ed], we'd still be playing it now. And if we were still playing it now, we'd be hotly anticipating the game's level cap raising patch. Speaking of which, Gearbox claim that the patch is finished on the development side. It's just..

The Wait For Bioshock: Infinite Is Going To Be Long & Difficult

We were excited about Bioshock: Infinite the moment it got announced

The game's debut trailer was stunning. But nothing really prepared us for this 10 minute gameplay blow-out. Infinite looks distinctly Bioshock in gameplay, but the world and setting carries the same amazement as the initial encounters with Rapture. Columbia looks fascinating. From the rails connecting the various..

The Latest Mafia II DLC Lets You Play As Ed Baines

We're not going to drop it

Vito Scaletta's side-kick in Mafia II, Joe Barbaro, is clearly based upon top restaurateur, and Britains Best Dish judge, Ed Baines. And now he's due to get his own DLC campaign in Mafia II.

Is There Still A Place For Duke Nukem? -- "Twiggy" The Push Square Opinionator

The re-announcement of Duke Nukem Forever this week has put my thoughts to the test

I was semi pleased when the game was cancelled. Obviously, my thoughts went out to all those who had worked hard and were losing employment — but at the same time, I feel like we've moved on from the Duke Nukem character. Does he even matter anymore? I vaguely remember my brother playing Duke Nukem on one of our..

We don't know why, but it's fact. We were sitting in front of our site traffic counter just as the news of Duke Nukem Forever's re-existence broke, and were amazed by the impact.

It's Time To Kick Ass & Forget About Duke Nukem

Duke Nukem Forever's going to get announced tonight

There's no way it's not going to happen. The evidence has been mounting. First there was the Gearbox rumour, to which the studio's gaffer, Randy Pitchford, said we'd find out more at PAX. Then 3D Realms' George Broussard posted a picture of some flying pigs on Twitter, one of which was wearing Duke's glasses. Now 2K's teasing a huge announcement..

Hey Mr. Levine, Could Bioshock Ever Return To Rapture?

The latest Bioshock game, Bioshock: Infinite, is notably set in the sky

Aside from going into space, you couldn't get further from the depths of the ocean. So is this the end of Rapture then? This was the question CVG put to Bioshock's creator, Ken Levine, during GamesCom last week. His response was decidedly indecisive (ooooh): “It was a very challenging and very difficult thing for me not to do..

Ken Levine On Skipping Bioshock 2 & His Thoughts On The Game

With the announcement of Bioshock: Infinite, many people are asking the question as to why the series' creator, Ken Levine, skipped on Bioshock 2

The answer's simple, he told Joystiq that he "felt like we said what we wanted to say about Rapture". He continued: "That's one of the reasons Bioshock 2 wasn't the right project for us and, as we agreed with the company, we didn't have..

Borderlands Gets New DLC This September, "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution"

It was nice of Gearbox to mention that there'd be even more Borderlands DLC

Assuming the third pack was the last, we eliminated Borderlands from our growing PlayStation 3 software tower a while ago. Wrong move, PushSquare. "Claptrap's New Robot Revolution" is due in September and will set you back roughly $10. The DLC will include 20 new missions, Claptrap (skag-traps, etc) modded beasts,..
