When I was nine years old, the very irresponsible father of a friend took a group of us to see Starship Troopers. Since then, not only have I harboured a deep fear of the impending bug invasion, I’ve also been searching for a game that makes me truly feel like one of Rico’s Roughnecks. The first game to really scratch the Paul Verhoeven itch was the original Helldivers, a top-down twin stick shoot ‘em up with a strong focus on fast paced, tactical co-operative action and a super-sized serving of referential satire. Arrowhead Game Studios is back for another bite of the cherry with Helldivers ..read more

Update: And the full, official first trailer for the Borderlands movie has now arrived. The nearly-three-minute spot thoroughly sets up the vibe for the upcoming film, which seems to be somewhere between “Mad Max” and “maximum madness” and honestly looks like it might be a good, goofy time. Also, somehow Jack Black is making Claptrap mildly tolerable, which is huge. Borderlands stars Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Edgar Ramírez, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Gina Gershon, and Jamie Lee Curtis and is headed to cinemas this August 9th, and you can watch the new trailer below ..read more
