Patch Snatch: A hotfix for Borderlands 2 on all platforms is now live and makes Thermitage from the Sir Hammerlock DLC friendlier. I am not quite sure how, maybe he offers you a nice mug of tea. For further details, click here.
Meanwhile boobs and punching game Dead Or Alive 5 will be patched to Ver.1.03A which will “will address the issue found with Ver.1.03 game play.” Brilliant.
Zen Studios have announced Star Wars Pinball for every format, ever. The first three tables are based on Boba Fett, The Empire Strikes Back and the animated series, The Clone Wars.
Achievements and Trophies are just for fun, right? Wrong! Check out this dude on Channel 9.
“I pick up a lot of chicks at clubs showing my Gamerscore on my phone. Right now, I’m getting more cred and respect from my cheevos, but later I will probably make a lot of money from it.”
Chicks AND money, what more could you ask for.
Good news for those in the Defiance PC beta, if you also ticked the box saying you want to playtest the PS3 and Xbox 360 beta then you will also get access to those when they launch.
Borderlands 2 has sold almost six million copies whilst Dead Island has exceeded expectations with five million sales.
The reboot of The Great Giana Sisters, an Amiga and C64 title that slavishly copied Mario is almost upon us and will be released this spring on PS3 and Xbox 360. The new game, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, has ditched the Mario styling and is now a 23 level platformer with “Dreamlike landscapes transform themselves from lush, resplendent surroundings into surreal, withered nightmare worlds, in which there are always new details to discover.”
Scandal of the Day: PS3 and PC players are rather miffed with Activision and Treyarch. Again. Activision has announced an official tournament for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and there is a whopping $1,000,000 up for grabs… if you play the Xbox version.
The event is sponsored by, yup you guessed it, Microsoft Xbox 360 and the rules state you must be an Xbox gamer and a COD Elite member.
And that’s it for today, not much of interest going on at all. What a dull post, if we had a video of Kris dancing at last years EGX then I would post it here to fill space but we don’t – it was recorded but has never been seen so I will just have to use the one from the 2011 show.
