When Borderlands first burst on to the scene back in 2009, many critics wrote the series off before it was even released. Gearbox Software “loot and shoot” first-person shooter launched at a highly competitive period against the likes of Uncharted 2, Demon’s Souls, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the following month.

Despite the odds, Borderlands not only survived; but thrived thanks largely to its addictive looting system, tight gameplay controls, and lush cel-shaded graphics.

Naturally Borderlands 2 followed not too long after, but before the series takes a step forward, Gearbox Software along with our very own home-grown 2K Australia will be taking things half a step back with a 1.5 release in the story arc – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Coming off the success of their first soiree into the next-generation marketplace, NBA 2K14 set a high benchmark as arguably the greatest basketball simulator experience ever created. The distinction between the previous-gen and now current-gen consoles was pretty much light and day, leaving many fans to ask the obvious question of Visual Concepts – Where can the 2K franchise go from here?

Although the improvements aren’t as drastic or immediately distinguishable from tip-off, NBA 2K15 adds further refinement to a series that needed very little improvement to captivate its audience.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified has suffered from a development hell of sorts and the fact it made it to release is a test of perseverance. Originally announced back in 2006 as a spiritual sequel to the original XCOM of the late 90s, the working title was apparently in the capable hands of BioShock developer Irrational Games. Years later at the 2010 E3 Expo, the title was revealed to be a first-person shooter and now under development by 2K Marin. Given XCOM‘s strategic heritage, the change in genre didn’t go down well with fans and as a result was again overhauled in 2011 to feature more strategic elements but at its core remained a first-person shooter.
