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.

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.
