I’m actually a little bummed that WWE2K15 is coming to the new consoles later than their aged counterparts. Not long Ago, 2K Games announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the digital slobberknocker would be released over two weeks later than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. This makes me sad, because I’m an elitist snob.

One thing that Destiny got wrong, in my opinion, was its skill tree – which wasn’t so much of a tree as much as a linear progression of skills. Borderlands does skills so much better, I think – by actually making it a bit of a branching tree. And now you can play with Borderlands: The Pre Sequel!’s trees from the comfort of your browser.

There’s a lot of work that goes into making a video game these days. Art, motion capture and setting up a ring in your studio in order to accurately capture a DDT spine-breaker deluxe. Well, not all games go to those lengths. But WWE 2K15 certainly is putting some more effort into capturing some sports entertainment love this year. Here’s how they’re making that game smell like some of the Rock’s cooking.

WWE games were starting to get stale, they were starting to feel more repetitive than a best of 7 match between Goldberg and Gillberg, under the stewardship of THQ. After that company dissolved however, 2K Games picked up the franchise, and injected some much needed new blood back into the series. It wasn’t perfect, but for a fresh start it was most certainly headed in the right direction thanks to some superb rekindling of classic memories. And this year, expect WWE 2K15 to focus on kicking even more ass this year, thanks to the new 2K Showcase mode.

Looks like yet another game is getting delayed out of the hellish month of October. Publisher 2K Games are pushing Evolve into February of next year.

Here at Lazygamer, we love us some Borderlands, as I’m so fond of telling Umar with each and every article that I possibly can (JOKES LUVS YOO). Borderlands, its sequel and various add-ons, have been an American product in the hands of Gearbox ever since the franchise arrived. But with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, players are getting a game with a very Australian development feel to it.

If there’s one bunch of games that I’ve perhaps put too many damn hours into, it has to be Borderlands and its superb sequel. I’m currently reaching the hundred hour mark on that game as I replay missions yet again in order to build up my Mechromancer (BEST ROBOT EVAR), and you can be damn well certain that I want some time alone with the upcoming Pre-Sequel game. That game is only scheduled for old-gen consoles and PC at the moment. But it could be more handsome on new-gen as well.

Word life! This is basic thuganomics! Word life! While I find John Cena’s supposed doctorate in thuganomics to be rather spotty at best, you can’t argue with the 15-time World Heavyweight and WWE champion. Because you’re most likely going to end up on the receiving end of an Attitude Adjustment slam.

Evolve is one of those games picked up from the smouldering embers of THQ’s demise early last year and I’m increasingly starting to think 2K games made a wise purchasing decision.  You may not recognize its developer, Turtle Rock Studios by name, but you’re almost certainly aware of its biggest game; the co-operative zombie-shooter Left 4 Dead. Evolve takes the basic premise of that, as a co-operative shooter and  - I hate myself for saying this – evolves it. And it’s fun.

We here at the Lazygamer office have spent more time than we care to admit playing Borderlands 2 – as have many of you. That said, we’re not sure we’re quite ready for a sequel.  Good thing there isn’t one. Gearbox’s Randy Pitchord recently said that his studio wasn’t busy making Borderlands 3. He omitted the fact that another studio was making a Borderlands game though.

2K’s latest baseball release, MLB 2K13, was widely panned as being a limp copy of the previous MLB 2K12. And now, we have all been taken by surprise at their decision to cancel all future development of the MLB series in its entirety.

When we talk about the industry's mega-titles we quickly start thinking about Call of Duty, Battlefield, FIFA and even Assassin’s Creed. But in reality they all pale in comparison to the juggernaut that is Grand Theft Auto.

It hasn't been an easy couple of years for the XCOM franchise. Back in 2011' the next step in the future of that series was revealed, a FPS that was heavy on the gung-ho and light on the spirit of the original games. After being off the radar for quite a while, that game has re-emerged as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. And it might just be the updated game that fans wanted in the first place.
