Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

[audiotube id=”m2hLYzio9jA” size=”medium” time=”no” loop=”yes”] Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 16/09/2014 I love the Borderlands universe: It’s crazy, intense and unrealistic, all at once – although, sometimes, it can get really real, really fast too.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

[audiotube id=”EvlborTYAKo” size=”medium” time=”no” loop=”yes”] Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 08/10/2014 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor had an early trailer that left me worried.

Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition

[audiotube id=”3aE2jVRQG9U” size=”medium” time=”no” loop=”yes”] Platform(s): PC Exclusive Release: 23/5/2014 There’s a fine line between being cool and coming off like a try hard, a line that anyone who’s had to suffer through Metal Gear Rising knows isn’t extended by how many cutscenes proving you’re […]

Plants vs. Zombies : Garden Warfare

[audiotube id=”FIYmLpsePW0″ size=”medium” time=”no” loop=”yes”] Platform(s): Multi-Platform Release: 21/08/2014 Plants vs. Zombies is a pretty cool idea.
