A great game, sometimes reptitive and desolate.

gossip5 | Nov. 24, 2011 | Review of Borderlands Game of the Year Edition dns

Borderlands is a great FPS game that fills the game to the brim with randomized and fixated weapons in the world. Throughout the entire desination from point a to b, from beginning to end, you're bound to find atleast one awesome gun to fit in your aresenal. Borderlands itself without DLC is long as is, including all side quests, but to add to it is a bucket load of zombies, soldiers, an arena, and robots to go around. While this gets quite boring after a while, you're bound to pick it up later in the month to give it another whirl.

Not worth it

gossip5 | Aug. 21, 2011 | Review of Duke Nukem Forever

Duke nukem forever is a long awaited sequel to one of the most awesome shooters over fifteen years ago. However, many say that it cannot live up to it's hype. However, the game is set for a different audience. It has crude adult themes and jokes, and is set to put trivial things in your face and do them for more "ego" or health. While many say this game never lived up to its hype, it surely was a big dissapointment to some and a great game to others. However, this doesn't mean this game has it's flaws. Before the latest patch, the game forced you to only carry two weapons which made the game extremely lackluster paired with the shooting. This doesn't mean that shooting is extremely solid, but it throws too much of trivial things and shooting onto your plate for you to chew. This game has little to no replayability even with the multiplayer that doesn't really suck you in. This game isn't worth it even if you're a diehard duke fan. It throws too much of something in your face for your enjoyment and is generally not replayable to be fun.

A great sandbox/rpg game

gossip5 | Aug. 18, 2011 | Review of Mount & Blade: Warband DNS

While fire and sword was a huge flop, this game set the standards with the amazing mods and huge community. The vanilla game itself, however, is a very big and vacant world. If you really want to enjoy this game, get some mods on. There's mod packs so big, it's bigger then the game itself. However, the multiplayer is the best thing out there with the huge battles and raging swords clashing. Pick this one instead of fire and sword. The general gameplay is huge battles with quests thrown in. To fully enjoy the game, you need to mass up your army and pit it against others. Then, you'll feel the satisfaction of victory with your men and soldiers. A must buy.

A great game but has its flaws

gossip5 | Aug. 18, 2011 | Review of Assassins Creed Brotherhood

Assasin's creed brotherhood is the next installment of the Assasin's creen series. In this game, you can command your very own crew of assassin recruits and send them off across europe to do missions. This game is graphically stunning to the point where Rome, the setting, seems to pop out. This game has its flaws however, with reptitive missions such as the warmachine/Leonardo ones, and with the quirky hud getting in the way of the game. This game also has multiplayer. A new addition to the franchise, the modes are just a cat and mouse with a little of this and that thrown into it, but it won't stop you enjoying a game where you stab someone in the back while you hop down from a building. Get this game, while it's not the best of the best, it's still worth a shot.

Great game that leaves you coming back for more

gossip5 | Aug. 18, 2011 | Review of Just Cause 2

Sometimes, you pick up a game and play through it once and get it over with, but Just cause 2 stuns you with an addiction that brings you back for more. While vanilla Just cause 2 is a great hybrid of a movie with stunts and a third person shooter, mods make it even better with black market mods that let you spawn any vehicle you want. Just cause 2 is a great game, and could be picked up when you have the time. It throws you into a sandbox thriller that also drags you to a gorgeous island. Get this game if you want to throw yourself onto cars and shoot the tires of pursuers while the driver narrowly rides through the road with obstacles. Very fun.
