You can learn more about both games after the break. (more…)
Have you ever heard of the “magical negro” trope? Perhaps you haven’t. How about the one regarding black women being “hypersexual?” No, haven’t heard of that trope either? Well, here’s the thing… you’ve definitely seen it, read it, digested it, but you might not have consciously absorbed it. Don’t feel too bad; most people don’t recognize it, either.
The fact that most people don’t see how offensive the portrayal of black and brown women in video games is, is exactly why commentary on this valid argument is so direly needed. (more…)
With just hours to go before we celebrate the end of 2016, Valve has announced the winners of the first-ever Steam Awards.
Rather than ask Steam shoppers to select a traditional “Best of 2016” slate, Valve offered up a rather unique class of categories and let community members nominate any game from the digital storefront’s catalog. This freeform approach even gave voters the chance to create a few additional categories out of thin air.
After casting votes for the past two weeks (and browsing bargains during the digital storefront’s Winter Sale, which continues through January 2), the winners of the first-ever Steam Awards include Doom (“The “Boom Boom” Award”), Portal 2 (“The “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” Award”), Grand Theft Auto V (“The “Game Within A Game” Award” and “The “Whoooaaaaaaa, Dude” Award”), and many more.
You can find the complete list of winners after the break, and let’s hope Valve does this again next year. (more…)
The bean counters at Steam have tabulated your nominations and announced the finalists for the first-ever Steam Awards. We don’t know if this is something the game retailer plans to do every year, but we’ll all be able to cast our votes later this week.
Voting for the Steam Awards will begin on Thursday, December 22, at 1:00 PM (Eastern Time) with “The ‘Villain Most In Need Of A Hug’ Award.” Fans will have 24 hours to choose between Borderlands 2, Dead by Daylight, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Portal 2. Voting for a new category will open up once a day until Friday, December 30, which is when Steam will open up voting for the fan-created categories.
The winners will be announced on New Year’s Eve, and the complete list of finalists can be found after the break. (more…)
Everyone that perused yesterday’s PlayStation Store update should be very familiar to all the titles added to the Xbox Games Store today. Games like…
- Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (Xbox 360) – Gearbox handed the development of this interquel off to 2K Australia, and they took it all the way to Pandora’s Moon… and made Claptrap a playable character.
- The Evil Within (Xbox One, Xbox 360) – Shinji Mikami’s return to the survival horror genre promises plenty of scares and lots of gore.
- Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Xbox One) – A remastered version of United Front’s gangland tale… now complete with every DLC add-on.
- The Walking Dead: Season 1 (Xbox One) – Telltale’s heartbreaking zombie drama is now available on the Xbox One.
- Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (Xbox 360) – The second game based on Pac-Man’s latest animated adaptation.
- Duck Dynasty (Xbox 360, Xbox One) – A game adaptation of everyone’s favorite show about duck-calling multi-millionaires.
More details on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
It’s another big week for the PlayStation Store as more than a dozen new titles are now available to download on the PS4, PS3, and Vita.
Leading things off is Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (PS3), 2K’s tale of what happened between the first and second games in the series. With a new location (Pandora’s Moon) and a new developer (2K Australia), it might just make your PS4 feel a bit lonely for the next few weeks.
But speaking of the PS4, it is now home to plenty of scares and a little bit of whimsy. The scares are provided by the haunted mansion of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within (also available on the PS3) and the roving zombies of Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Come to think of it, the deadly Triad gangsters of United Front’s Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition are pretty scary too. To balance out all this blood and gore, you might like to know that PopCap’s adorable puzzle game, Peggle 2, was released for the PS4 this week as well.
Vita owners might like to know that Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition is finally available to download. Not only does the portable version of Mojang’s world-crafter include everything from the PlayStation 3 Edition, but it’s also a free download if you own it on the PS3.
Finally this week, if you love Duck Dynasty so much that you want to play a quickie tie-in game (also titled Duck Dynasty) on your PS3 or PS4, then Activision’s got you covered.
A complete list of this week’s new releases (including a few more that went unmentioned above) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
While most of this Fall’s new releases are centered around showcasing the power of the PS4 and Xbox One, let’s not forget that previous-generation consoles like the PS3 and Xbox 360 are also in line for a few new games. (Meanwhile, the Wii U sits in the corner, doing its own thing, content in its existence.) And PS3/Xbox 360 owners should take note that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, perhaps the biggest PS3/Xbox 360 release of the Fall, will be available in stores this week. The third Borderlands game, which actually takes place between the first two titles in the series, will also be released for the PC.
Bethesda’s The Evil Within is not a previous-generation exclusive, but it will be release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in addition to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Evil Within is Shinji Mikami’s return to horror and will likely be full of pants-wetting terror regardless of what platform you play it on.
The rest of this week’s new releases are a grab bag of games that run the gamut from a new Pac-Man game (Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 on the 3DS, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360) to a Duck Dynasty tie-in (Duck Dynasty on the 3DS, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One) to a passel of re-releases on new platforms (Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One; The Walking Dead on the PS4 and Xbox One; and The Walking Dead Season 2 on the PS3 and Xbox 360).
Finally, speaking of systems proclaiming their existence, Sony’s PlayStation TV set-top box, which plays Vita games and streams PlayStation Now content and local PS4 games, will be released this week.

Several retailers let the cat out of the bag a bit early, but Telltale Games officially announced today that The Walking Dead Season 1, The Walking Dead Season 2, and The Wolf Among Us will soon be available for the PS4 and Xbox One. According to Telltale, a disc-based compilation of each episodic series will be available “later this year.” PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will also get a chance to purchase The Walking Dead Season 2 and The Wolf Among Us on disc as well to join the previously released disc-based version of The Walking Dead Season 1.
Telltale has promised to announce a release date for the compilation discs soon, and this news lends further credence to the belief that Tales From the Borderlands will also be available for current-generation and new-generation platforms (and the PC) when it launches sometime this Summer or Fall.
