No, it's not different this time!

Borderlands 2 DLC

Like most games anymore, Borderlands 2 has DLC. It is overflowing with it. Some games sort of give up; others have less but more substantial installments. I do not have all of the DLC for Borderlands 2, but I have most of the main points. It seems that most of the DLC centers around some character.

Sequels. In every form of media, there are sequels. Generally, the more of them there are in a series, the worse it is. Even the first sequel can come with numerous problems that make the original still hold value. Borderlands 2 is not one of them.

2048

It's been a wild three weeks. In browsing Hacker News, like I do, I witnessed the rise of 2048, and the proliferation of its forks.

Here's a THQ classic that I mentioned a while ago. This game is the absolute scariest game that I have ever played. The best part about it is that it does not present itself as such. There's no motif of murder, psycic eminations, or some crazy whacko, in neither its ads nor its environment.

It doesn't seem so "modern" anymore, because it was released in 2008 or so. The only reason I had bought it was because that's what everyone was playing at LAN parties. Although it itself is a sequel, this could be pointed to as the beginning of the series' sequelitis.

Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas is an interesting kind of game, and not quite all in the good way. For some, it's the only game they have on their neglected Xbox 360. For others, they wanted more Fallout 3. And New Vegas is sort of that, but not really. There is much less emphasis on the karma system, in that it hardly affects anything, and more emphasis is placed on your relations with another person's faction. If a town doesn't like you, the people won't be friendly, and if they hate you enough, they will start shooting. Last summer, I decided that I would replay it.

Sorry, it seems that I've been slacking off the shooter promise for a bit. Let's get back to work with the next F.E.A.R. installment.
