This Sunday, I will be appearing as an interview guest on Headshots from the Heart, a Child’s Play charity event where they play Borderlands to… hang on. Let me just give you the scoop from their site:
There are many marathons online which contribute to causes like this one, but what makes Headshots from the Heart unique is that viewers not only have the option to donate directly, but to pledge an amount of money to be earned by the players each time they defeat a foe with a critical hit, or “Head shot”. This will force us not merely to play for twenty-four hours straight, but to play well, in order to earn your money for charity. Children deserve our best, and we at Headshots from the Heart intend to give it to them.
So… a twenty-four hour game of four-person Borderlands. That sounds like enough time to play through the tutorial and then car-wrestle for twenty hours. Or maybe that’s just me.
Twenty-four hours of multiplayer Borderlands? Let’s hope Gamespy behaves in some way other than the way it usually behaves. (Or maybe they’re playing on XBox?)
The event begins tomorrow at 12:30pm EST. (5:30pm GMT) I’ll be appearing on Sunday at 10am EST. (3pm GMT) If all goes well, we should be able to get the video feed working this time. Please tune in if you can.
The plot of this game isn't just dumb, it's actively hostile to the player. This game hates you and thinks you are stupid.
Do you like electronic music? Do you like free stuff? Are you okay with amateur music from someone who's learning? Yes? Because that's what this is.
Batman: Arkham Origins
A breakdown of how this game faltered when the franchise was given to a different studio.
Dead or Alive 5 Last Round
I'm not surprised a fighting game has an absurd story. I just can't figure out why they bothered with the story at all.
Final Fantasy X
A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.
