Hankering for more Borderlands, well now's you chance to take Borderlands wherever you go. Gearbox Software has announced that Borderlands Legends will be coming to iOS devices at the end of this month. The game is an action-RPG-strategy game that features the original cast of Borderlands and will offer the same kill, loot and level experience only this time in an isometric view. Head over to Entertainment Weekly for a first look. The game will be $4.99 on iPhone's and $6.99 on iPad's.

Joe Mad Leaves Vigil Games

Co-founder and Creative Director Joe Madureira has left THQ and Vigil Games. Joe and a few other gentlemen founded Vigil Games back in 2005 which was acquired by THQ a year later. After working on Darksiders I and Darksiders II Joe is leaving to pursue new adventures he said via a Facebook update. This means that the next installment of Darksiders will be done without the first two games creative director. 

It always hits with a pang of disappointment hearing one of the people behind a well-received game is leaving a company but all the best to Joe on his future endeavors.

Bioshock Infinite Beast of America Trailer

Anarchy Reigns Release Date

So it's been some time since we've heard anything about Anarchy Reigns, Sega multiplayer brawler. Well here's some good news, the game is scheduled to be released on Jan 8th in the US and Jan 11th in Europe--FINALLY. The kicker is that the game has a suggested price of $29.99, which is quite low for a new retail game. It begs the question WHY? but far be it for me to question a reasonable price.

I'm Back!!!

Apologies are in order. For the past month or so I've been, for lack of a better word, neglecting my blog. During that time I've missed a bit. My last post was about the Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC, that has since been released and a new piece of DLC--Omega--is set to be released. So let's do a quick recap of what I didn't post over the time I was away.

Let's see things you may have heard and some that I found really surprising. The Nintendo Wii U has an official release date and price point, coming in two version. This came by way of an event Nintendo held where they revealed that the Wii U will be released this November with an 8GB and 32GB model (White and Black respectively).
