The Borderlands games aren't somewhere I expect to see a sensitive portrayal of mental illness. They're full of kooky, "crazy" characters who rant about turning you into their pain-puppet, so hearing a solid bit of mental health advice mid-quest was a surprise. I did not expect that, or the parts where it talks about the value of therapy and the sidequest to transform Krieg's memory of his old cell into a safe internal happy place by redecorating it. … [Read more...] about The best parts of Borderlands 3 are hidden in its DLC

Build crafting in Destiny 2 has gone from non-existent at launch to now being so complex that some players are afraid to even touch it. Which is a shame, because the two main mod systems—'Charged with Light' and 'Warmind Cells'—enable perks that are super fun and powerful to play with.

Are we excited that Massive is making a Star Wars game?Tim Clark, Brand Director: I love this. It's one of those announcements that just seems such a good fit that your brain immediately spins up with ideas. I played a lot of The Division, and only less of its sequel because by that point my Destiny 2 addiction had spiraled so irrevocably out of control. But if we're to assume that this new Star Wars game will be some sort of shared-world looter shooter, then the license feels like an incredibly good fit. What I think the continued love for KOTOR tells us is that Star Wars fans want to live in this universe, not just blow through a quick campaign like Fallen Order, and although live service loot games have a bit of a bad rap right now—largely I think because they're so hard to get right—Massive is one of very few studios with the experience to pull it off. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?
