When we saw a trend of remakes getting done, it was clear that there were many games fans would want, and many of those games would no doubt see the light of day. From Resident Evil to Darksiders to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered helped bring forth the idea of what game remastering can be like. It brought forth a valid question of whether or not games could be lost to time. With smash-hit sales in the years before as well as a rather ubiquitous sales as well as cultural marks.

Bulletstorm is one of those games that just managed to fascinate its fans with its ability to lure in rewards for styles of killing enemies, working with their friends, and even pushing them through the games campaign. However, the question remains: Do games deserve a second chance like this? That’s the biggest question of them all. With new state-of-the-art hardware. Do these games deserve a second chance even if they possibly failed to succeed the first time around?

The Nintendo Switch and Borderlands 3 Won’t be Happening and What This Means for the Switch

If you’ve ever wondered if Nintendo’s upcoming console that has set the world into a frenzy would be getting Borderlands 3, you’d be heavily mistaken at this bit of news, and it’s partially due to the company who is about to attempt shaking the world. While Gearbox hasn’t confirmed the new game will be titled Borderlands 3, it’s safe to assume this isn’t happening, especially when Randy Pitchford himself comes out and makes that abundantly clear.

His response was plenty clear when responding to the original tweet and there is a bit of resounding disappointment from fans of both the new console and Gearbox themselves. This continues on to prove the point Nintendo has a lot to work on in order to keep fans entertained. With this news, it proves that Nintendo may not have what it takes to prove that, and keep ups as entertained as we would hope.

As fans already own consoles and PCs that can play the game, it’d be safe to bet that Nintendo and Gearbox have a lot to work on together in order to keep their fans amused and rather entertained. With a subscription cost and everything coming with their new console, they need something to look forwards to, and Borderlands 3 would have been the game to do that.

Will this deter you from getting a Nintendo Switch if you are preparing to get one? Let us know in the comments.

Battleborn Closed Beta Registration’s Go Live

Battleborn_Banner

If you’re wanting in on the closed beta for the upcoming Gearbox title Battleborn’s closed technical tests, pay some attention. As we know, the first test will take place on the 29th of October. Those that participate in the closed beta will be under an NDA, which means no floods of streams, no chatter, or even very little about what the game itself featured.

Sign-ups are still open on Gearbox’s website. Those that participate will be under NDA, so there won’t be a flood of streams or chatter about what’s on display.

You’re fine with that? Cool! Then here’s what you need to do. Head over to the Gearbox Website and sign up for the beta if you already have an account. If you do not have a Shift Account? You will need to head over onto the Shift Account page to setup and get ready for the Beta. This beta includes tests for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; this also includes what you’ll need if you plan on testing this rather colorful first-person multiplayer title that is set to play much like a rather colorful MOBA. So what exactly is this test for? To test the 25 playable characters for balancing, the servers, as well as to help polish the game before its launch on February 9th, 2016. So lets get down to what you’ll need to have in order to get rolling.

For PC Players:

  • OS: Windows 7 x64-Bit or Later
  • Processor: Intel Core2 Extreme CPU Q6850/ AMD A8-3870k (Quad Core CPU’s)
  • Memory: 6 GB
  • Hard Disk Space: 10 GB free
  • Video Memory: 2 GB
  • Video Card: AMD HD 7700/ NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or better, PhysX support
  • Sound: DirectX 11 Compliant

For consoles? The email that we received stated that the game will require between 4 to 8 GBs free of Hard Disk Space. This doesn’t surprise us since the console game will probably be lacking in a PhysX like engine, which we assume Battleborn will use.

So will we be writing at all about our experience with the Battleborn beta? The answer is quite frankly no. Due to the way the NDA’s work we won’t be able to discuss it, take pictures or even show you anything in regards to it outside of what we get or do not get in press kits. If you would like to get in on the beta? We highly suggest it and if you are in the test and will be frequenting the closed beta forums for feedback.
