Sony Goes Hands-on With Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita

50°
21w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands-on with Borderlands 2 on PlayStation Vita today with details below.

To quote: The PlayStation social team recently had a chance to play a build of Borderlands 2 on PS Vita, and as the group's resident Borderlandophile, I immediately called dibs. What can I say about this game? It's Borderlands 2 on the Vita!

Controlling Borderlands 2 on PS Vita is a customizable affair: just go into options and remap to your heart's content. To change a control, tap the action or button (even the abilities assigned to the touch screen or rear touch pad) you want to change, then tap wherever you want the action to be.

By default, tapping different areas of Vita's rear touch pad yield a sprint or a melee attack, while a tap on the front screen tosses a grenade or activates your character-specific ability.

Shoulder buttons L and R still aim and shoot, though I did notice a useful new feature that takes advantage of PS Vita's built-in gyroscope: when you're aiming down the sight, moving PS Vita will adjust your aim.

Environments and character models are surprisingly detailed, and the game overall runs at a solid clip, generally hovering in the vicinity of 30 frames per second. Slicing dudes up as my main cyborg-man-alien-mystery-assassin-thing...

24w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill revealed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel PS3 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: More Borderlands? Yes please!

2K just announced Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, a new entry in the awesome/ridiculous/ridiculously-awesome FPS series from Gearbox. It takes place between Borderlands 1 and 2, and explores the rise of the latter's charmingly sadistic villain: Handsome Jack. Oh, and it's on the moon.

Offensive opportunities will be plentiful, with new laser-based and "Cryo" weapons joining the already gargantuan armory present on Pandora, and you can play as one of four new characters - including Claptrap.

Read on for full details about Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, straight from 2K.

Handsome Jack is back with a whole new cast of playable characters and he's taking you to the moon of Pandora in the next standalone AAA game in 2K's best-selling franchise - Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. 2K announced today that the game is being co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, and will be available later this fall for the PlayStation 3. See, aren't you glad you kept your PS3!?

Narratively, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place between the original Borderlands game and Borderlands 2. For the very first...

Video: Telltale Games: Tales from the Borderlands Detailed at SXSW

50°
28w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared details and video footage today on Tales from the Borderlands from SXSW below.

To quote: Hey everyone! This weekend, Telltale Games, Gearbox, and 2K Games unveiled Tales from the Borderlands at SXSW with the very first details from the upcoming series... and we have the full video of the panel right here to share with you!





We can finally reveal that you will play as TWO protagonists: Rhys, a Hyperion company man with a robotic arm and a knack for hacking; and Fiona, a fast-talking con artist.

The story will be told from both of their perspectives, and here's the twist: both of these characters are lying jerks, so you're never playing what REALLY happened. It's more like playing each of their interpretations of events, and the truth lies somewhere in between...

Set on Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2 and all its DLC, Tales from the Borderlands will explore characters who aren't your typical heroes or badasses. Rhys and Fiona aren't vault hunters, but they definitely have their own agendas, doing whatever swindling, cheating, or backstabbing they need to in order to survive.

Rest assured it's not all talk, either - there'll...
