Guns, Midgets, Aliens and more Guns!

Borderlands!

I am not joking…..borderlands does have midgets.

Borderlands is a very unique game, It combines aspects of MMO’S (Massively Multiplayer Online) with the gameplay of an FPS ( First Person Shooter)

There are 4 classes to choose from

  • Siren
  • Hunter
  • Soldier
  • Berserker

They each have different attributes and when played together can help each other through the game.  The level cap is 50 and there is split screen and online co-op multiplayer

So far I haven’t spotted any real flaws to the game, I have come across maybe one or two minor bugs and the art style is different and rather amazing in its own way. For now I have only played multiplayer co-op and the  game play is fantastic, but I can imagine if you were playing single player you would get rather bored.

A major selling point of the game is the arsenal of guns, and there are thousands! I’m not even joking there are over 1000 guns which makes working out your inventory of weapons a kind of mini-game. As you can imagine with so many guns you begin to find guns that are practically exactly the same except for maybe a minor tweak of speed or damage.

There are plenty of enemies to fight yourself through and as soon as you start getting sick of the same old enemy a new set of alien inhabitants cross your road.

The game plays marvelously and I cannot get enough of the way they have been able to make an FPS feel like an MMO, and we can only hope other games companies follow 2k’s lead and develop more games as good as Borderlands.

Guitar Hero 5

As many may know I am a massive fan when it comes to online games, console games, video games and anything that fits under the category “games”. Now being the gamer that I am I was very well aware of the Guitar hero franchise but never really had an interest for the guitar rhythm game. A few of my friends had the game and I played it occasionally but was never a massive fan….That is T’ill now!

The game was released on the 16th of September and I only recently got my hands on a copy of the game and a wireless Xbox 360 guitar. As soon as I started playing I noticed two things firstly, the game was awesome! and secondly, I sucked at it!

But just as most other things in life it takes practice, and practice pays off. I started on the easy difficulty but as I progressed through the amazing arsenal of 85 songs my skills improved and now I’m on the medium setting.

This game really is something worth picking up if you have a Ps2, Wii, Xbox360 or Ps3. The great thing is that once you have your instruments you can buy the other games standalone, which shouldn’t set you back to much.

The song list is pretty sweet as well flaunting songs by famous artists such as Bon jovi, Blink 182, Nirvana and loads more. My favorite songs at the moment would have to be Dancing with myself, The rock show, Blue orchid, and you give love a bad name.

Thats all from me, I’m going to go and rock it out in my living room!
