With the recent announcement that Gearbox Software and 2K Australia are working on a pre-sequel in the Borderlands franchise that takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, we have gotten plenty of information about where the game will take place, the characters, the plot, a release time, and what consoles it will be on. Some people were a little confused by the announcement, especially why it would only be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, but others are excited nonetheless. Randy Pitchford, the President of Gearbox Software, has recently talked about where they are right now in scaling how big the world of the pre-sequel will be, and deciding a price point for said game.

Since the news of the remastered version of the Game of the Year award winning title, The Last of Us, was recently revealed, how about we keep the news train rolling with a possible release for the upcoming version? A multitude of retail outlets have possibly leaked the release date for the game. From Gamefly to Target and Best Buy, they all have the game scheduled to release on June 20th. Most expect it as a place holder until a real date is confirmed, so we can't say for sure if this is an official release date. Some people have noticed that if it is true, the game will be released a week after the big E3 event happens. The Last of Us: Remastered Edition will run apparently run at 1080p and have improved character models, lighting, and shadows. The game will also come with a director's commentary.

Boy, we have had a lot of news stories about resolution recently, haven't we? The recent rumors that the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will run at 900p on PlayStation 4 and 720p on the Xbox One means that we are not going to hear the end of this resolution debate anytime soon. The recent victim to this news fad is Ubisoft's Trials Fusion, the next game in the popular Trials franchise. A Ubisoft rep told Venture Beats that the game will run on the PlayStation 4 at native 1080p while the Xbox One version will run at 900p. The game is also coming to the Xbox 360 and PC and Ubisoft has confirmed that all versions of the game will be able to run at 60fps.

The game is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

I think for awhile now we've known that the AAA industry seems to have a heavy focus on a select few genres, and among that, making games that seem to be all too similar. We've found plenty of avenues to place the blame for this, but chief among them is the AAA marketing teams. Jim Sterling, review editor of The Escapist, had a chance to sit down with developers and other such folks within the AAA industry to talk about this very issue.

Unfortunately, he can't say who he talked to because they would lose their jobs, but he has a very saddening yet very pointed quote that explains practically every issue we see with AAA games. Head inside.

One of the mostly critically acclaimed games of last year was Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. The horror-survival shooter won many gamers over with its story of Joel and Ellie, beautiful graphics, gorgeous music, and fantastic atmosphere. It did have some issues with some questionable AI opponents; a story, while good, was predictable at a lot of points; and some level design feeling stale. With the recent news that the game is getting a PlayStation 4 remastered edition, well...let's just say that some gamers were a little sour about this news instead of being excited. Some people think this is just a ploy to get more cash, some think that the original release was meant for the PlayStation 4, and there are a handful of other complaints and issues people have with this news. But one thing that is certain now, thanks to Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells, is that that the PlayStation 4 version of the game has been in development since June of last year when the game was released.

A few years ago, controversy arose in the gaming community about the existence of "on-disc" DLC, a hot topic for many gamers at the time. Fortunately, the topic died off quickly. So why bring it up again now? Well, the makers of Dragon Age: Inquisition recently confirmed a rumor that was floating around the net about their plan for DLC party characters, namely that the game will not come with on-disc DLC, due to the controversy that has surrounded that practice in the past with games like Street Fighter X Tekken and Mass Effect 3.

One of the more interesting downloadable games to come out for the Xbox 360 was Supergiant Games' Bastion. For those that didn't know about this game, Bastion was an isometric action game that was praised for its beautiful art style and narrative while getting a mixed reception to the combat. Their next game that is coming out is called Transistor. It is about a young woman who carries a sword called the Transistor and is being chased by an evil force. The game's combat has the appeal that you can either play this game in real time or have the action on screen pause to layout some powerful combos against the enemies that chase you. The many gamers who own a PC or PlayStation 4 will be able to download this game in May for the hefty price of $20. So far, you can not preorder the game, but Supergiant Games has been thinking about that option. The only thing they have confirmed is that the game will release with a multitude of different voice over and text styles including English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, and Portuguese. The game will be released on May 20th for the PC and PlayStation 4.

Here is an odd bit of news today. Sony's Shuhei Yoshida, the man who manages all 1st party content for the PlayStation brand (so, Sony's Miyamoto), has been banned twice on Nintendo's Miiverse community. The first was for promoting his twitter handle within his own profile (one of many rules people find a bit silly in the code of conduct) and for a Miiverse post (pictured inside) where he said "I Love PS", which was interpreted as promoting a commercial product.

Nintendo has nailed down a few exclusive titles the last few years, such as the Monster Hunter series, Sonic, ZombiU, The Wonderful 101, and Bayonetta 2. We know when it comes to Star Wars everything Lucas Arts was working on was canceled, but one of those games apparently featured Darth Maul and was intended to be Nintendo exclusive (originally for the Wii and 3DS, later moved to Wii U). When I say intended to be, that is because when push came to shove in the very early stages Nintendo didn't offer enough financial support to ensure console exclusivity.

So, as it were, it was slated for the 360, PS3, and Wii U. The game had never seen the light of day... until now. Head inside.

Japanese publication Weekly Famitsu recently ran an article by the name of "The Truth on 2014′s Rumors." Among the topics discussed was none other than the ever-looming The Last Guardian, the third game from the developers who brought us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, Team Ico. Famitsu contacted Sony to ask whether The Last Guardian is ever going to release, and the response they got was fairly standard with the addition of a vague time window for the game's reintroduction.

Sony once again confirmed that The Last Guardian is, in fact, still being developed and that they're waiting for the ideal time to bring it back into the spotlight. They did, however, also mention that, if all continues to go according to plan, new information and a release date could very well be revealed soon.
