Big Borderlands Announcements at PAX East 2019 March 30, 2019

Gearbox Software have made not one, not two, but THREE Borderlands related announcements at PAX East 2019 and one of them is one hell of a doozy.

First up, the original Borderlands game is being remastered for current consoles with all of its DLC missions included. The game is being upgraded to support 4K UHD on consoles like the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Next up, the Handsome Jack Collection, which included Borderlands 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is also getting re-released for modern systems including the Xbox One and PS4, and will also support Ultra HD if played on a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X.

If that is not enough for you, let me reveal the biggest elephant in the room, Borderlands 3 was announced and we’ve got the trailer for that as well.

You might want to crank up the resolution on these videos if you can, Gearbox software promises these games will be presented in native 4K UHD (where supported) and these trailers match the resolution. Gearbox promises more will be shown from Borderlands 3 on April 3rd so stay tuned for more information about that.

Borderlands 3 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

During E3 2018, Bethesda revealed The Elder Scrolls Blades was coming to iOS and Android powered smart devices. The free-to-play game is heavily inspired by the franchise, and has a fantastic art style anyone who played the previous games will instantly recognize. Today, anyone with a compatible device can finally play Blades in Open Beta, and we’ve spent most of this morning trying it out and enjoying it.

If you signed up for the game’s beta during E3, make sure to sign into your Bethesda account to unlock your exclusive Beta content. Even if you didn’t play in the closed Beta, your account will still unlock your goodies during this Open Beta period. Progress in the Beta will carry over to the full game when it is officially released, and that includes purchased content.

The Elder Scrolls Blades is out now for Android and iOS Smartphones and Tablets.

A new system software update has just been released for various personal Apple devices following today’s Apple media event. The new update brings in support for upcoming Apple services when they become active. It also enables a new Siri feature so you’ll be able to watch video content from your personal device on a recent model Apple TV.

While this isn’t the biggest update we’ve seen for a personal device, it certainly isn’t small. On our testing, it weighed in at over 800MB. You can download it right now through iTunes or your device’s software update feature.

Iron Man VR Announced March 25, 2019

During Sony’s first State of Play event, they showcased some all new titles coming to the PSVR, one of which looks like it’ll make you say “I Am Iron Man”, even if you’re not a fan of Black Sabbath, Iron Man VR. Take a look!

I have hundreds of potential questions about this announcement. The Marvel gaming team that oversaw Spider-Man on PS4 is clearly involved in this game but we have no idea if it takes place in the Spider-Man GamerVerse. The armor and style appear to look ripped straight out of the MCU films. If we learn more about this game, we will keep you posted!

Iron Man VR is coming later this year to PSVR.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 Announced March 22, 2019

Never in the span of my tenure running this website did I ever believe I would make the announcement I’m making right now. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 has just been announced.

Bloodlines was one of my favorite PC RPGs of all time. It was released in 2004 and its story, gameplay and atmosphere appealed to me immediately. Here was a game that presented a grounded vampire world where you could accomplish so much. The newest game will take place in Seattle and you will play a new fledgling vampire. Paradox promises it will be a direct sequel to the first game with all the gameplay intact. The trailer even hints at some of that gameplay. Heck, the writer from the first game is coming back to write the story for this game! We couldn’t be more excited about all the possibilities for this project!

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is coming Q1 2020 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Tales from IT – How PC Gaming Prepared me for IT March 20, 2019

Welcome back to another Tales from IT. This is going to be a bit of a different kind of Tale in the fact we aren’t going to be discussing the events from one particular job, but instead talk about our history. Recently, I was asked to perform a task at work I had done tons of times before and I quipped about the first time I had ever done that particular task and why. I had done it because I wanted to play video games against my friends. I then realized I owed a lot to my gaming experiences, and since formal computer classes were never offered during my primary school education, gaming had taught me more useful life skills than anything I ever learned in school.

So where did my IT experiences come from, and how did it prepare me for a career? Watch below and find out.

Making of a Tomb Raider Documentary Released March 19, 2019

The television-length documentary Making of a Tomb Raider, which we originally witnessed during its one night only cinematic release, has finally been released online and you can watch it right now.

The documentary isn’t as much about the making of the most recent Tomb Raider game, but instead about the trials and tribulations of professional athlete Clair Marie as she tries to replicate the things Lara Croft has done in the real world. How well do the games stack up to reality, and is Clair up to the challenge? Well you’ll have to watch the video and find out!

The documentary lacks the cinematic replay of the first two rebooted Tomb Raider games and the preview of the most recent title shown during the theatrical distribution, but those games are still out in stores and can be played on modern gaming systems.

Control – GDC 2019 Nvidia RTX Gameplay March 18, 2019

Remedy’s Control has landed at GDC 2019 and Nvidia has used it as a big example of the new ray-tracing capabilities of their most power graphics cards. Sadly, this video isn’t in 4K, so there’s some limitation on how good this will look, but you will be able to notice the difference between the game’s RTX mode being on and off.

Hopefully we will have more gameplay videos for you guys as GDC goes on!

Control is coming later this year for the PC, Xbox One and PS4.
