    Robots Love Ice Cream is OUT

    So remember just days ago the announcement that this game was coming out in the Spring? Well it turns out that that just meant it was coming out literally that week. So you need to check this game out. It was a KickStarter game that took a bit longer than first anticipated but it is now out, the developer, Burton Posey, is excited, and you should be too. Here's a link to the game. I know that I'm going to check out the final version, myself, when I get home today. 

    If you would like a bit more information before heading over to the AppStore page, I give you this:

    Prove that saving the galaxy is pretty sweet in this stunning, fun-packed arcade shooter. Save humanity’s vital ice cream stocks from dastardly robot enemies, armed with your weaponized ice cream (yes, weaponized ice cream!). Venture across the galaxy and discover stunning worlds, defeating the invading robot forces with your frozen firepower. When your robot foes have had enough, they explode with joy! You’ll also discover challenging extra mini-objectives, and upgrade your ice cream capabilities with magical Sprinkletonium to become super-powered! 

    - Weaponized Ice Cream: From Rapid Pop to Hot Fudge Fun Day, every type of ice cream gives you a new experience defeating your robot menace.
    - Each Planet Holds Tons of Challenges: Beat the clock, avoid traps, save the ice cream with one weapon? Defeating the robot menace is even tougher with unique objectives you face on each level. 
    - Combos Create Carnage: Weaponized ice cream is even more effective when you use your combos. Defeat more robots and collect more Sprinkletonium!
    - Explore New Worlds: Travel throughout the galaxy, beating back the robot menace on desert planets, frozen tundra terrains, and other exotic territories. 
    - More Planets, More Robots: The more you play, the more robots you’ll meet. Each new foe makes it more difficult for you to save the galaxy’s ice cream supply!
    - Power Up! What can Sprinkletonium do for you? Upgrade weaponized ice cream to help you better battle the ‘bots, that’s what! 
    - Multi-Dimensional Gameplay: 3D worlds in a 2D landscape make for a visually-appealing adventure through the galaxy.

    Gearbox Announces Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel 

    So Gearbox and 2K Australia have teamed up to give us another Borderlands to play around with. This time the game takes place on Pandora's moon, and will feature low gravity combat as well as tons of new weapons to play around with. Now of course some of the big questions has to be:

     

    1. What Platforms is this Coming out For? PlayStation 3, XBOX 360, and PC
    2. When is it Coming out? Fall of 2014
    3. What Characters will we get to play with?
      • Athena, the Gladiator: Uses her Kinetic Aspis, which is a shield that can absorb incoming damage, then convert it back into energy to use against enemies. Athena made her debut in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC for the first Borderlands game.
      • Wilhelm, the Enforcer: Wilhelm was previously seen in Borderlands 2 as one of the first deadly bosses in the game.
      • Nisha, the Lawbringer: The sheriff of Lynchwood from Borderlands 2, Nisha will be dealing out her own brand of justice, which we'll discuss further in the coming months.
      • Claptrap, the Fragtrap: Wait - Claptrap? The goofy robot companion from Borderlands 2, now playable for the first time? Fragtrap is his character class? Well, you can play him too!

    So I guess the only thing left to do is patiently wait for more information, and of course for the months to fly by so that we can get our hands on it. Now I do want to point out the platforms of choice are the current gen and do not include the PS4 and the XBOX ONE. Personally I think this was done on purpose. My reasoning behind that though is the following:

     

    1. Don't have to reinvent the engine and code for the game to come out
    2. This game has NEVER BEEN overly graphically intensive so it doesn't need the boost
    3. Finally, PS4 and XBOX ONE are spending way too much of their attention on their mediacentricness instead of  the fact that there are games to be played on the system.

     

    So in closing here's a picture of what the game is looking like right now:

    WWE: Ultimate Warrior Dies at 54

    Alright so this is not really a video game story, but it is a story about someone who was larger than life for many people, my age, growing up. He was absolutely insane, and we loved it. I was never really allowed to watch WWE when I was growing up but that didn't stop me from gaining a couple of action figures by trading them for Creepy Crawlers I had made. Actually come to think of it Ultimate Warrior might still be buried somewhere on the property of my old house in Macon, GA. 

    Anyways the crazy thing is that soon after he was inducted into the WWE hall of fame he passed away, and that is truly sad. The pivital moment for any wrestling fan, which of course I didn't get to see, was in 1990 when he took out Hulk Hogan. Wrestling fans everywhere mourn today.

    Mojang's Scrolls Coming to iOS

    Well for those of you out there who have been on top of the whole Scrolls deal from Mojang, and impressive game, if I say so myself, you might have noticed that this game SCREAMS "put it on the iPad". Well apparently they have been listening and are partnering with Ludosity to get an iOS and an Android version ported out so that even more can enjoy the game, and they can do so on the go. Now of course they don't have a date on this happening, and they will have to fill us all in when the dates are set, but for now I'd just advise, if you have not already, go over to the site, get the PC or Mac version, practice your ass off, and then when the iOS and Android versions come out you will be ready to play ALL the time.
