by jollinson 05/05/2016
Battleborn is the latest first person shooter to come out of Gearbox, The studio behind the Borderlands series.

RAMPAGE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

by Leonieon 18/05/2013
So, my Borderlands obsession, it started with Mordecai. I don’t know why, normally I am not the type to go for that type of character. Normally I go for the big beefy type that runs into a battle with both hands gripping the handles of two mighty war axes, ready to cleave some skulls and […]
