During the “World of Capcom” PAX East panel, Brett Elston from Capcom made the announcement that a new Mega-Man game is on the horizon; however, later a rep explained “‘there are still discussions going on about [Mega Man] and that we won’t announce anything until something is ready. We have not confirmed there is a MM game yet'” (Destructoid). But come April 25th and May 16th, Mega-Man 4 and Mega-Man 5 will release on the 3DS eShop.

Borderlands 2 features four new classes: the Gunzerker, the Siren, the Commando and the Assassin.

You may have noticed Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchfordspeaking out against the “girlfriend mode” nickname on Twitter.

As reported below, the Mechromancer skill tree that helps video game newcomers is formally called Best Friends Forever. But Borderlands 2 lead designer John Hemingway referred to it numerous times as “girlfriend mode”.

“Borderlands 2 does NOT have a girlfriend mode,” Pitchford stated on Twitter. “Anyone that says otherwise is misinformed or trying to stir up something that isn’t there.

“The future DLC Mechromancer class has a skill tree that makes it easier for less skilled coop partners (any gender!) to play and be useful.”

Pitchford didn’t deny that Hemingway had said “girlfriend mode”. Instead, he labelled the term a “personal anecdote” that had been spun by the media.

“There is no universe where Hemingway is a sexist,” Pitchford added. “All the women at Gearbox would beat his and anyone else’s ass” (Eurogamer).
