The average video game player is in their mid-thirties, as any adult gamer will eagerly tell you, but even if less than 20% are under 18, gaming is as much a part of kiddie culture as it has been since the dawn of Pong. In fact, gaming is aiming younger by the day.
“Throughout the years, games became more complicated and less accessible,” says Nintendo Canada’s Matt Ryan, who notes the motion-sensing Wii and touch-screen Nintendo DS helped the Japanese company reach an age range of five to 95. “We need to consider what that audience is able to do from an ability standpoint. That’s why we make games we call ‘pick up and play,’ which is a game like Kirby’s Epic Yarn.” ILLUSTRATION BY STEVE MURRAY

Borderlands 2 Official Reveal Trailer

This newly released official reveal trailer for Borderlands 2 shows off some more of the game that is going to be one of the biggest for 2012. New characters, a new vehicle which shows four players riding in it, compared to the only two available seats in the original Borderlands 1 car (there was a four person tank, but only via dlc), a new skill tree, and the original 87 bazillion guns, just got more bazilliondier.

Borderlands was a ton of fun. If you haven’t played it. You should pick up a cheap copy to warm you up for one of the biggest games for 2012, Borderlands 2.

This game can be played single player but emphasizes co-op gameplay of up to four people. With awesome comic cell-shaded type graphics, some hilarious dark comedy, and seriously an insane amount of guns all set in a dystopian Mad Max/Sci-Fi type of environment, this game really brings a TON of fun to the table.

This was a fantastic trailer. I’ve seen gameplay awhile ago, and am surprised it’s not being released until Q3 of 2012. But that just means that this game should be freaking flawless. We shall wait and see.

Although, not always a fan, I thoroughly enjoyed the dubstep to this trailer.

Borderlands 2 will be released for Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Looting will begin on September 18th in the States, and September 20th Internationally.

It’s too bad. I really want to be excited for this, as everything about the setting and plot and characters really draws me in. Unfortunately, I remember how unsatisfying and frustrating the single-player gameplay was in the first one, and this one seems even more hellish for the lone gunman. Sorry, 2k. Big miss.

Nintendo’s Problem Isn’t Hardware—They Stopped Making Killer Games

all-the-lights:

“Let’s whisper the awkward truth that Nintendo, the company hailed as one of the best game-creating studios in the world, is in a great-game slump.”

YES YES YES YES YES YES. I have been saying this ever since the Wii came out. Nintendo has lost its edge. I feel like Nintendo has been slowly gearing itself towards casual, fluffy gaming than trying to compete on the level of big, cinematic games.

to be fair, anyone who is not mentally defective in some way knows this. unfortunately that narrows down to quite a demographic

Haven’t been posting much recently cos the girlfriend was staying over but I’m back now, I know everyone missed me so much. Here’s a lovely video which has aroused me
