Battleborn v Overwatch: One of These Things is Not Like the Other

by Callum Tyndallon 15/05/2016
There is an emerging genre currently being referred to as “hero shooters”, essentially a combination of FPS style combat with MOBA influenced hero design. Two of the biggest games currently being placed in this bracket at the moment are Blizzard’s Overwatch and Gearbox’s Battleborn.

Battleborn Review

by jollinson 05/05/2016
Battleborn is the latest first person shooter to come out of Gearbox, The studio behind the Borderlands series. I say first person shooter but perhaps that’s not an accurate description as many of the heroes you will see in the game are perfectly happy bringing a sword to a gun fight! Or a stick… or a rocket launcher. Essentially there is no rules for combat when the last star in the universe is at steak!

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review – 3 GPP

by Sai Mealingon 03/03/2013
Straight to the point: An appallingly bad spin-off from the Aliens franchise and a game which will leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Gearbox Software and possibly even the entire gaming industry for years to come. One of the most disappointing titles of this generation.

Straight to the Point – With a world full of character and unique personalities, a dash of insanity, tried and tested gameplay and fantastic opportunities for loot; Gearbox have once again made the surprise hit of the year.   Review I’ve always thought for the last few years that there are very few quality split-screen […]
