I'm a college student always looking for a fun game to play between classes. I've been playing XBLA games for some time now, and I'm a huge fan of the price and creativity of these games. Writing about them is almost as fun as playing them. Almost.

Tower of Guns locked and loaded for April 10 release

Tower-of-guns

Grip Games is working with Terrible Posture Games to bring their hit FPS Tower of Guns to consoles. This high-octane shooter is built on old-school sensibilities, offering fast-paced action and a hailstorm of bullets. Players will enter the Tower of Guns, a challenging gauntlet made of seven randomly-generated floor. Blast away enemies and defeat giant bosses using an arsenal of big weapons, modifiable equipment and upgradable abilities. Every death will start you at the beginning of the tower and completely reset its layout, but at least you’ll start off stronger and better equipped.

Tower of Guns will shoot its way onto Xbox One on April 10 for $14.99. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Tales from the Borderlands review hub

Talesfromtheborderlands

Welcome to the Tales from the Borderlands review hub. Here we’ll collect our reviews for the individual episodes of the series as they are released. Once the series is complete, we’ll update this page to have a full review of the entire series. Check out the reviews for the currently available episode(s) below.

  • Episode 1: Zer0 Sum — “an amazing start to the series, worth a try if you love Borderlands or just love a good story”
  • Episode 2: Atlas Mugged “more great performances, more laugh-out-loud moments, more crazy action sequences and more Loaderbot”
  • Episode 3: Catch A Ride! (coming soon)
  • Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo (coming soon)
  • Episode 5: The Vault of the Traveler (coming soon)

Tales from the Borderlands is Telltale’s take on the Borderlands universe created by Gearbox Software. The game ditches its FPS roots, trading its deadly guns for cutting words. The series takes place after the events of Borderlands 2, showing players for the first time what life on Pandora is like after the fall of Handsome Jack. The game is told as a flashback, as Hyperion employee Rhys and skilled con-artist Fiona recall their adventures and continually embellish the truth.

Tales-from-the-Borderlands-Ep2-6

Atlas Mugged happens to be a big milestone for Telltale Games: this is their 100th episode across all series.

Atlas Mugged shows that Tales from the Borderlands is here to stay by continuing a precedent of uber-awesomeness. It delivers more great performances, more laugh-out-loud moments, more crazy action sequences and more Loaderbot. It’s more Tales from the Borderlands, and boy is that a wonderful thing.

goat_simulator_logo_0

Do you want a hyper-realistic simulation of the life of a farm animal? Well, we don’t have that, but we have the next best thing. Goat Simulator is coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One this April.

Goat Simulator released last year on PC and took the world by storm with its non-stop randomness. You play as an indestructible goat with an impossibly long tongue, out exploring an intentionally glitchy open world full of secrets. You must find as many ways as possible to rack up points, whether it be by doing flips, causing mayhem in the streets, or climbing ladders with your head. Check out the trailer after the jump, which contains the most dramatic goat footage you’ll ever see.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood coming in May

Wolfenstein-The-Old-Blood

Today Bethesda announced Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a standalone prequel to MachineGame’s Wolfenstein: The New Order. Taking place in an alternate-history 1496, the game will yet again follow BJ Blazkowicz in his bloody fight against the Nazis.
