Borderland's shaky cam footage is bad ass.

Check this out, some dude was sly enough to get a video cam recording the private showing of Borderlands 2 at PAX. The quality isn't that great but it's the first footage of any actual game play for Borderlands 2. 

To quickly summarize on the more interesting stuff that happened on the video:
  • The ability to throw your guns at enemies
  • Better enemy AI
  • A mini boss who uses a midget as a shield
  • An awesome talent called sexual tyrannosaurus
  • A look at another playable character
  • A cameo of a returning character from the last game
  • The ability to dual wield anything as the Gunserker class
Overall the game looks more of the good stuff the first one had, except with more icing on the cake. I've never played Borderlands but after watching the huge amount of awesome this video had, I may give it a go. What do you guys think? Y'all hyped?

New cover art for Street Fighter X Tekken makes Ryu look fat.

Capcom has released their box art for their new cross fighter game Street Fighter X Tekken. All I gotta say is, damn Ryu! You've let yourself go, you fatty fat fatty, look at those chubby cheeks.

BONUS: Also released, 2 new character teaser trailers! I'm sure the first one is Heihachi. The second one might be Rolento with Sean duck-taped to him? I'm not sure I'm just going with what the YouTube community is guessing. Check em out.

Who do you guys think is the second, mysterious character?

Modern Warfare's killing streak system is being completely changed.

"We changed the entire way the killstreak system works. I can't go into detail yet, but I will share when I can." Infinity Ward's, Robert Bowling has confirmed through twitter that the killing streak system will go through major changes in Modern Warfare 3. He obviously can't give much away but at least he is giving us something to speculate on, while we wait with anticipation for the game's release.

What kind of changes would you guys like to see in the new system? Make sure to leave your comments below.

New bill wants to make streaming video games illegal!

A new bill has been proposed to  the Congress. If the bill passes any type of streaming of video games through YouTube, Live Stream, Justin TV, etc. will be considered a felony. The bill will be a ten strike bill, those who get all ten strikes will go to jail. This is fucking ridiculous, guys. This only benefits the greedy companies that don't want their content shown unless you pay for it.

Is there anything we can do? Actually there's a petition right here. Is it a 100% grantee that it'll stop the bill? Who knows, but it doesn't hurt to sign and even so it's pretty unlikely that this law will pass. It pretty much violates the first amendment. People post videos showing their opinions on a video game while playing. In a fighting game people may invent new combo's and they want to share them with their friends online. Other times they may find a humorous glitch while playing and they 'll want to share that as well. Allowing this bill to pass is pretty much taking away our freedom of speech, it is unconstitutional. It's pretty likely that the Congress will see the harm that this bill can do.

I bet this fucker is supporting the bill.

World of Warcraft, free to play and ready to take over your life!

The folk's over at Blizzard are making their biggest game free to play. Everyone and their grandmas can now join to the addiction. People who have free to play accounts can only reach level 20, this is a very sly way for Blizzard to get more people into WoW.

I'm going to be completely honest here, for one whole year I was addicted to World of Warcraft. When you play it's all you think about, it's all you want to do and it's all your going to do. Fair warning to those wanting to try it out, WoW is addicting.
