But now in honor of the zodiac, you may now play the new DLC Year of the Snake that is available for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Our main character, Wei Shen, is back with the police and is looking for details concerning the Cult of the Snake whom has been participating in a series of bombings.

Trine 2 to receive Goblin Menace DLC in the fall


Trine 2 will be receiving a DLC titled Goblin Menace. The brand new DLC like most DLCs will expand on the gameplay of the original game by introducing new levels along with skills available for the three classes. Check out the reveal trailer below for this new expansion which will hit in the fall for just Steam and Wii U (Trine 2: Director’s Cut). Eventually, the DLC will probably make it to the PS3 and Xbox 360, but there’s still no word on that, the release date, and price. Whatever the release date or the price may be, it looks wonderful in the vivid screenshots and is probably well worth the wait.

Borderlands 2 Badass system and screenshots


There’s a new infinite levels of progression system in Borderlands 2 detailed below and taken from Eurogamer since it was well-written and I’d rather not paraphrase the information and instead play some of games from the Steam Summer Sale 🙂 Oh if you happen to not purchase Borderlands from the Steam Summer Sale when it ends at less than 34 hours from now, Amazon is having a bit of their own summer sale and you can purchase Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition which includes the DLCs for just $7.49 (the same price as Steam’s) and it’ll also be redeemable on Steam. I really like the vibrant colors, bright greens, purples, and blues of Borderlands 2.

Gearbox Software has unveiled Borderlands 2’s Badass system, its character-wide progression system with an infinite number of levels.

As you play Borderlands 2 you level up your Badass rank, which is linked to your profile but provides statistical bonuses to all your characters – new and old.

Each time you use a token gained through Badass, the game randomly picks a set of statistics. Then, you decide which statistic to increase. It’s all powered by a secret algorithm the developer is keeping close to its chest,

Gearbox chief Randy Pitchford, who expects to see long-term players with Badass levels in the thousands, told Eurogamer he believes the system is the first of its kind.

“I don’t know of any examples,” he said. “There are a couple of games that have done profile levelling. Even Call of Duty multiplayer, your growth is profile related, not character related, but they don’t have character choices. You’re not growing characters.

“And I haven’t seen one that’s comfortable with infini-growth. Everything puts a cap onto it.”

Using data based on how Borderlands 1 players played the game some two-and-a-half years after launch, Gearbox is able to extrapolate how players will play the sequel two-and-a-half years after it launches, and use mathematical models to predict how the Badass system will evolve.

It’s all part of Gearbox’s effort to create a hobby with Borderlands 2, something players continue to play for years.

“Borderlands was a weird thing in the sense that, a lot of games are designed to be a story you consume and then you’re done,” Pitchford said. “Whereas Borderlands was this thing that launched and then both in sales and in playtime it kept accelerating, instead of just launching big and then dropping off.”

Borderlands 2’s expected enduring popularity should enable Gearbox to make a “really big investment” in downloadable content, much in the same way it did with Borderlands 1.

There’s also the issue of value, Pitchford added. He hopes that by creating a game that, technically, will last players forever, they will feel they’re getting value for money.

“They got to take a risk. They’ve got to spend some money. They’ve got to buy a game. And I want them to feel like, man, the value I’m getting out of this, it’s not only worth the $60 or whatever, I’m getting more value out of this than the last $500 I spent on other video games. We want that goodwill.

“So we’re thinking about it like a hobby and not like just a consumable, get it done and get ready to buy your next game.”

Steam’s midweek madness reduces indie tower-defense, Dungeon Defenders


Supposedly Steam’s summer sale will begin on the 12th making this midweek madness sale the last for the next two weeks. Dungeon Defenders has received the special Steam discount this week at 66% off. Dungeon Defenders latest Quest of Lost Eternia Shards DLC is available now at just $3.99. But even if you don’t want to shell out $4 for a DLC, the other DLCs are all 66% off and range from $0.33-$1.69. Additionally if you don’t own this indie tower defense game, you can pick up the game for just $5.09 as pretty cheap try-out. The Trendy Entertainment game mixes tower defense, action, strategy, and RPG into one allowing you to immerse yourself in the quirky game solo or with a buddy or two. The game supports both PC and Mac versions and uses Steamplay (just a one time purchase and you get both editions). The sale ends on Thursday at 7.oopm EST.

BioShock will receive an Ultimate Rapture Edition


BioShock Infinite is delayed until 2013, but BioShock and BioShock 2 will be receiving a special edition called the BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition, according to the British Board of Film and Classification. The UK Edition will feature BioShock and BioShock 2 with all previous DLCs.

According to BBFC, this is what they had to say about the games’ description (possible spoiler ahead):

“During normal gameplay, the BioShock Ultimate Rapture compilation contains frequent strong bloody violence. The depiction of violence is similar throughout the original game and its sequel, with sight of spraying blood as enemies are attacked with a range of weapons, including a mechanised drill and a rivet gun.

“In spite of the fantastical nature of ‘Rapture’ and the heavy science fiction elements present in the narrative, such as the ability to use special destructive powers including freezing, immolation and telekinesis, the violence has a visceral feel during much of the combat. Enemies, including genetically mutated humans, twitch and scream as they are gunned down, and weapons such as a spear gun allow the player to pin characters to the wall in a cloud of blood. It is also possible to shoot enemies after death, with blood spurting from the corpses.

“At various points, the player is also given a moral choice to either kill or save ‘Little Sisters’ (possessed little girls who harvest the corpses scattered around the city). Such a scenario is clearly fantastical, although the player sees the girl reduced to a slimy writhing creature if he or she decides to harvest the girl rather than saving her. At ’15’, the BBFC’s Guidelines state ‘Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury.’ The frequency and visceral impact of the violence exceeds this limit, with a dwelling on the infliction of both pain and injury throughout.

“The game also includes some very strong language during gameplay, as well as numerous uses of strong language. The very strong language is most appropriately classified at ’18’.”
