Games Releases (19 – 23 October 2009)

BorderlandsNEW_1250272309No time to babble!

Borderlands from Gearbox Software, a First Person Shooter with RPG elements,  is game of the week.

Here’s an exerpt from the 1up’s review B+.

“Call it a first-person Diablo, an evolution of Resistance 2′s co-op mode, Monster Hunter for the west, or a party game for FPS gamers. Call it the best example of the transformative power of multiplayer. Whatever you designate it, Borderlands is a decent single-player FPS/RPG that simply becomes great — when playing with others. Besides, sheer midget panic is something that has to be shared with friends.”

Finally, an honourable mention to the former king of football, Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 for old times sake.

Costas

Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life. Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded, www.forevergamers.com, and on his personal blog, www.lostingames.net.

  • hey there costa! borderlands seems pretty cool. i really like cell shaded games.

    any word on pro evo 10 yet? im thinking of grabbing a copy but not sure weather fifa or pro will be worth it

  • Good morning!

    I have not played Pro yet, just Fifa. The reviews for Fifa a lot more favourable (for example eurogamer gave it a 7/10).

    I would go for Fifa re unless you play with friends who still play Pro multiplayer. That’s the only the reason i can think of for not making the switch.

    Borderlands should be very cool indeed with co-op. It’s one of those games worth waiting for a while cause they will drop in price a lot in a few months.

  • Btw, I am playing Uncharted 2. It’s excellent.

    And you can now buy PSN Cards to buy stuff from the Playstation store.
