Borderlands 2 Profile: Maya

30 08 2012

I think that Maya could be one of the biggest suprises for Borderlands 2. Her Phaselock ability could potentially be a co-op player’s dream come true. Freezing your enemies in mid-air while all of your buddies light ’em up.

Gearbox has released Maya’s profile for Borderlands 2, check it out!

Borderlands 2 can’t get here quick enough for me, but you can expect it to hit stores September 18th, 2012.

Most of us as children remember the stories of the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and the Sandman. Well, for the first time to my knowledge, all of these fairy tale characters are coming together into one game. Dreamworks Animation and Torus Games team up to bring the video game tie-in of the movie Rise Of The Guardians to us this November 20th, 2012.

If you haven’t heard anything about this game, here are some key features from the game:

Here are some of the key features of Rise of the Guardians:

I’m all for a 4 player co-op game, even if its’ a movie tie-in video game. Will any of you be picking up Rise of the Guardians when it launches this November 20th?





Borderlands 2 Profile: Salvador

20 08 2012

With Borderlands 2 less than a month away, Gearbox/2K are keeping the hype up for (probably) the most anticipated co-op title of this year. I can’t wait to see the improvements made from the first game. The skill trees, from what I’ve seen, are going to be a lot more awesome. Which could be a problem as well because there aren’t really any bad choices for any of the characters skill trees. So what to pick? I’ll probably spend as much time debating that as I will looting and shooting!

So here is the official profile for Salvador, the Gunzerker! (click on the picture for a bigger version).

I’d have to say my favorite part of his profile is: “Likes: Shooting Things, Dislikes: Not Shooting Things.”

Well, Salvador…we can’t wait to start shooting things with you and the rest of the vault hunters when Borderlands 2 arrives September 18th, 2012!

RUMOR: Left 4 Dead Local Co-op

25 06 2008

This part is not a rumor…according to project lead Mike Booth, Left 4 Dead has been confirmed for a November 4th release date. 

Now, on to the rumor part:  We know that 4-player online co-op has been confirmed for the game.  But now, rumors on the internet are saying that there will be a split-screen 2 player ‘local’ co-op as well.  Which is fine by me, I’d enjoy that just as much as playing online (but…4 players are obviously cooler than 2 player).

Whether true or not…only time will tell and we’ll be here to confirm or deny this rumor when it’s announced.
