Borderlands now €/$/£ 5 on the Steam Store.

Well everyone Valve has done it again. Another amazing mainstream series for a ridiculously low price. Played a demo of this and have been meaning to buy it for a long time. If you'll excuse me, I just printed out a picture of the Valve logo and intend to make out with it for the next 10 mins. (Not really)

Skyrim, Why I WONT be looking stuff up about it.

This time last year, I was full on melting down with excitement for Bethesdas new game, Fallout New Vegas. This time round about 3 weeks apart they're release their sequel to Game of the Year hit Oblivion, Skyrim. Now when they announced Fallout New Vegas, I nearly Ddosed the Fallout Wiki as I constantly refreshed for news. Fallout 3 was one of my favourite games of course I was going to find all the news I could. However when October 22nd rolled around, I picked up my collectors edition and ran through the game with little to no effort. The reason why? I knew where EVERY thing was. I knew all about each area and it just took the fun out of it for me really. It wasn't like how I ran through a Subway in Fallout 3 and happened upon a cult of Vampires or went off exploring and found The Republic of Dave. This time around, even though I didn't enjoy Oblivion as much as I did Fallout 3, i'm not looking at anything besides the occasional screenshot to simply get a bit of excitement going. However this is still getting me excited. The graphics in this game simply WOW me. There is so much detail in the smallest thing. The gameplay appears to be vastly improved and of course... DRAGONS!!!! So now this gives me two things to be jizztastically excited about on 11/11/11 (The other being Minecraft full release)

For this weekend only, Minecraft accounts 2 for the price of 1

Well if you have that special someone, or are a greedy bastard like myself, you get a free Minecraft account when you buy one. Essentially that's €7.50 per account. You can't buy them separate but it is definitly worth it especially for this game which is ranked as one my top 3 games of the year.

Free 3DS Games, What would you like

Well as you may know the 3DS recently had a large price drop. Personally I see this as being down to lack of good starting games and the fact that a key area that would by them, Japan, was affected by the Tsunami that so rudely happened on my birthday...
So not to screw us over, by us I mean early purchasers of the 3DS, we get 20, count 'em 20 free games for our 3DS. 10 in September and 10 around December. The 10 in September will be NES games while the ones in December will be GBA games. Personally i'm hoping to get a Final Fantasy in that NES package seeing as that's where it all started. In terms of GBA i'd love to see Kirbys amazing mirror.
So if there are any other early adopters out there, what do you want in your free games?

Catherine Statue Reveals Cleavage and Undergarments That's Worth Taking A Peek

So Catherine apparently did quite well in sale and critic wise during its release in July. It has no doubt achieved a cult following leading up to its release such as sauwcy cosplay and its eye capturing fan art. So collectibles like this awesome statue above was well expect. I have to admit I really do love the attention to detail on the statue and, obviously, the pose. Its release will be next year and sadly no talks of its price as of yet from the creators Max Factory.

Garrys Mod review

Well in terms of reviews i've been pretty dry lately. I haven't been able to do much Blarg wise because of other projects and lack of games I'm willing to review but anyway, I'm back, have a few reviews planned so let's get this show on the road.

Garrys mod is a new game created by PC Powerhouse Valve. How to explain Garrys Mod. Well, it isn't really that easy. Think of it this way. Imagine Bethesda created a game where you could drag random bits of the Fallout and Elder Scrolls universe and put them together to make whatever you want. This is what Garrys mod is apart from instead of Bethesda games they're Valve games. Meaning, you can actually use decent games and a be free from glitches and crashes. So essentially I could drag out a Manhack from Half Life and then blow it up with a Shoop da whoop like laser.

When you get Garrys mod for its low low price, you get the half life kit free and a variety of random content. You also get the "Toybox". It's essentially a folder of items created by your fellow players you can use in your level. These include maps, Guns etc. Today I killed 10 combine soldiers with a 300 Sparta Kick. There are LITERALLY infinite possibilities. Among my other creations are a couch with 100 baloons in an attempt to recreate "UP". I made a Gunship out of the air boat from half life.
So much for brotherly love...

Even when you're "finished" with some of the materials, Garrys mod picks up any Valve content on your computer and adds them in. For example, It picked out my Counter Strike Source and Team Fortress 2 and now I can use them too.

The Following video is essentially a showcase of what Garrys Mod can do. (It is a bit NSFW)

The multiplayer is DEFINITLY something to shout about. A lot of modded game modes are available, My personal favourite is called "Smash". The object of the game to avoid cannonballs being shot ( Which destroy the Stands you and your team-mates are on) survive and win. I see this game as a more in depth 3D Little Big Planet. If you enjoy open sandbox games like LBP or Minecraft, you'll fall in love with this.
Don't read too much into it...

So what did I like and dislike?
  1. Amazing depth of building inventions
  2. Loads content from other games
  3. Amazing Multiplayer
  4. Endless Possibilities
  5. Very Cheap price of 10 euro (For all the stuff you get, it's fecking worth it.)
  1. Lack of tutorials which made it hard for me to start off.

This game gets a 9/10. It's spectacular and it's no surprise it's made it to the glory it has. Another home run for indie gaming.
My actual reaction to Garrys mod ^

Borderlands 2 is Now Official

So just randomly (well sort of) Borderlands 2 gets its announcement with only the September cover to Game Informer to anticipate. Sadly there is no trailer and no signs of Cl4p-Tr4ps (Clap Traps) so its no true Borderlands announcement. Plus who's that fat bastard on the cover? Clearly a character not in the original Borderlands, so many questions only one issue of Game Informer to answer maybe two of them. Can't wait for this which will be hitting stores in 2012 or 2013. Here's the official press release; 

Fans can get their first glimpse of the bold evolution of the Role-Playing Shooter at Gamescom and PAX Prime 2011 this month 
New York, NY – August 3, 2011 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that the sequel to the extravasplosive breakout hit, Borderlands™, is currently in development at world-renowned developer Gearbox Software. Coming to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC during Take-Two's fiscal year 2013 beginning on April 1, 2012, Borderlands 2 is the epic sequel to the ultimate four-player Role-Playing Shooter loot fest. Combining invention and evolution, Borderlands 2 features all new characters, skills, environments, enemies, weapons and equipment, which come together in an ambitiously crafted story. Players will reveal secrets, and escalate mysteries of the Borderlands universe as they adventure across the unexplored new areas of Pandora.
A new character class? AWESOME! This is like the Diablo equivalent to the consoles, so here's me excited. Can't wait to see some gameplay!ing this show on the road, and fan

Time to Get Back Bl4rGing!

Well talk about neglect, this Bl4rG has been really dry lately due to basically the inactivity of the gaming industry which more or less means there is NOTHING to talk about. Were approaching the end of Summer :( so I think its time to get back to Bl4rGing, and just as we begin to come back there is quite a bit of announcements creeping up the street ahead. Not to mention the ton of games coming this fall, so this is an apology for our absence but we had birthdays and holidays that needed our attention and now that its all done and over with I can thankfully say we're back after a short break.
