Check out Athena’s skills in Borderlands:The Pre-Sequel

Skills for kills Moon Agent, skills for kills. The real magic behind Borderlands has always been in the light RPG mechanics behind each character. After all, why focus on just shooting when you can tailor your Vault Hunter to be able to shoot ricocheting bullets that stack anarchy and cause elemental havoc? The upcoming Pre-Sequel to Borderlands features four such new additions. Here’s a look at the skill tree of a character who rhymes with Shmaptain Shmamerica.

Check out episode one of the making of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

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.

Borderlands:The Pre-Sequel could arrive on PS4 and Xbox One

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.

Borderlandsing tips from Handsome Jack

When Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! was announced, I had written it off as a blatant cash in on a popular franchise. Gearbox wasn’t doing development itself, handing the reins over to 2K Australia. For a long while, I remained unconvinced. And then I saw a trailer for the game that turned my opinion around completely.

E3 2014 – Borderlands:The Pre-Sequel is pure dance-kittens

The moons of Pandora. Desolate, barren and populated by bandits who are married to their own sisters. It’s the kind of environment that is just asking for four plucky adventurers to go on a lunar rampage in. And become moo-oo-oon kings!

The next Duke Nukem game might not have Duke Nukem in it

For all intents and purposes, Gearbox now own the not just the rights to Duke Nukem, but the entire IP itself. At least, according to Gearbox. Interceptor and 3D Realms believe this to be nonsense, going so far as to tease a new Duke game in Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction with a website called www.AllOutOfGum.com. Litigation seems to be getting in the way.

Meet the new gang of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Is the world ready for Borderlands 3? Probably not. But is it ready for an interquel, dubbed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? The answer to that, is a definitive maybe. The curtain was finally pulled open yesterday on the new game that is being developed by 2K Australia. Here’s what you can expect to find in the missing chapter of Borderlands.

Video of Borderlands 2 on the PS Vita

Borderlands 2 was our game of the year in 2012 and is the game I’ve probably put the most time into over the last 5 yeas. So when I heard it was coming to the Vita, a device I do not like, I was intrigued.

Homeworld Remastered Collection includes both new and old games

One genre that has seen a dip over the last decade, has to be the strategy game. Sure, there’s a few great examples out on shelves now, but they certainly don’t dominate sales like they used to. One of the best such games back then was Homeworld, a cosmic real-time battle amongst the stars. Gearbox has been hard at work remastering the two games. And they sound like old-school ideas with new school visuals.

Has Duke Nukem been sold again?

I think it’s time King Duke was put out of our misery. according to a tweet posted on the weekend the studio who once owned Duke Nukem, Apogee Software (3D Realms) has now been sold to Interceptor Entertainment. The studio currently developing a new Duke Nukem title.

Borderlands 3 is not in development

I love internet conspiracies - they are fun and silly and outlandish. My favorite are all the Half Life 3 fake mathematics to prove that the game is actually coming. But Gearbox isn't going to let you do that to Borderlands 3. It just isn't in development.

Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction runs out of gum on Feb 25

You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. That was the case with Duke Nukem Forever, a perpetually delayed game starring the Chuck Norris of video game characters, which never was going to live up to a decade of hype. But a new game starring the Duke? Let’s rock!

Tequila behind Telltale’s collaboration with Gearbox

Tequila often leads to strange pairings, as any bartender or bar fly can attest. However, at last year's Spike VGAs, it helped bring Telltale Games and Gearbox together, eventually leading to that strange love child that will be Tales from the Borderlands.

Telltale’s making a Borderlands game

I’m honestly quite conflicted. I love Borderlands unequivocally. Very little of that has to do with the story though; it’s all got to do with looting and shooting. I love Telltale equally; their adventure games tell some of the best stories in the videogame medium. I’m just not sure the two will work together.  

Aliens Colonial Marines ‘passionless’

80’s action-flick actor du jour (DuJour means friendship!) Michael Biehn reprised his role as Dwayne Hicks in Gearbox’s canonical Aliens: Colonial Marines, which as you know was a terrible game, lacking any real sort of direction.  According to the actor, working on the game wasn’t a great experience.
