Gearbox's first person shoot-and-loot, Borderlands 2, was not only fun but also hilarious, at least in my opinion.

Anthony Burch, the game's lead writer, made a twitter post saying he's leaving Gearbox and moving on to write for a brand new Hulu series by RocketJump.

Over the past few years, it would seem the LEGO company has made quite a name for itself in the realm of video games. Their formula of creating brick-filled, kid friendly versions of popular franchises has become a huge hit. Recently, Warner Bros.

Yokai Watch 2: Shinuchi launched in Japan on December 13, and it's been the top-selling game in that market ever since, selling over 2.4 million units in just a few weeks. However, the popular series was knocked all the way down to number four this week, as PlayStation 3's Tales of Zestria took the top spot, and The Legend of Legacy and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse both debuted ahead of Yokai Watch as well. In all, seven new titles debuted on Japan's top twenty this week, but hardware sales still declined on every platform across the board except PlayStation 3. Hit the jump for the complete numbers!

Microsoft had a very strong holiday season with good sales all the way from Black Friday into the Christmas period. As a result, its quarterly revenues from first-party franchises is up $171 million, or 79%, with PC Gamer attributing a large chunk of that increase to the company’s $2.5 billion acquisition of Mojang AB, the developer of Minecraft, which is still selling around 10,000 copies per day on desktops alone.

Recently a hands-on preview of Capcom's upcoming survival-horror title Resident Evil: Revelations 2 stated that the game featured microtransactions at the start of every chapter. Many gamers found this troubling because the report stated that real cash would be used to buy an item that allows you to re-spawn after death, and without this item there would be no checkpoints. Capcom has addressed the situation, and although there are microtransactions, they are not present in the campaign. Raid Mode will allow players to use cash to buy various weapons and upgrades, but the main story will not.

We're less than a month away now from the debut of the first chapter of Resident Evil: Revelations 2, and lots of details are trickling in for the episodic survival-horror game.

Each chapter will begin with a checkpoint where players can use real money to purchase weapons, skills, and life crystals. Hit the jump for more info!
