2K Games


There were a lot of memorable moments that came about in 2K Games' Borderlands when it released in 2010.  Dancing robots.  Huge explosions.  A mammoth boss battle or two.  Then there's Crazy Earl, a character that not only stood out in his own right with his craziness, but also expanded the campaign by adding various missions that we didn't see coming.  Well, hang onto your hats, boys and girls, because he's coming back with a vengeance.


A few companies are introducing a new practice with some of their releases, in the hopes of introducing some new fans to games that helped generate interest in a franchise to begin with.  Case in point -- when Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Bioshock Infinite come out for the PlayStation 3, they'll come packed in with bonuses that players can enjoy right on the disc -- the original games that started them all.


It's not often you see a company reward its attendees when they come to their panel, aside from telling some great stories and entertaining them, of course.  We're talking PHYSICAL rewards.  But Gearbox Software actually turned a few heads at its panel, not only bringing 140 pizzas to feed its happy, hungry attendees, but giving them an unexpected bonus -- its upcoming 2K Games release Borderlands 2.


If anything is inevitable in the video game industry, it's that if a video game is successful, a sequel -- or maybe more -- will follow.  This has been proven time and time again, and this year alone will bring a series of sequels to the forefront, including Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Gears of War 3 and more.  Now rumors are circling that 2K Games' open world shooter Borderlands will be getting a sequel sometime next year.  To which we say, "Um, surprise?  We knew this already."


This year was looking pretty good for comic book game releases, particularly with Batman: Arkham City closing in on its October 18th premiere.  But the pressure of how good that game will be is probably leaving an effect on some publishers, most notably 2K Games.  The company has announced that one of their big projects for the Halloween season, The Darkness II, has been pushed to February 2012.

Out of all of the games that were shown at E3, it seems that Bioshock: Infinite left a huge impression on judges and critics alike, scoring lots of awards including Best of Show. The reason it won so many people over was a demo that was shown at E3, but only privileged people were allowed to see this. You may be wondering what was so good about the demo in the first place, but now you'll get the chance to see it for yourself. In preparation for a 30-minute special on Spike TV, 2K Games sent out a teaser that shows the first 2 minutes of the E3 demo.

MIAMI, Florida – Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban's Dallas Mavericks finally won their first NBA World Championship as Dallas beat Miami 105-95 in a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, which Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat won. This time around, Dirk would not let his team lose as he took NBA Finals MVP honors for a remarkable series. Dirk talks to GamerLive.TV about what video games he played growing up. The Finals MVP also explains why he hates gaming now and talks about which haircut he wants to have in the next NBA 2K12 basketball game in this exclusive video interview.


I'm just going to get it out there, the Bioshock Infinite video demo was one of the most exciting things I saw at E3 2011. Bioshock Infinite is set on an alternate history floating Island called Columbia, sort of a skyward World's Fair and a monument to "American Exceptionalism." In this alternate timeline, the floating city became militarily involved in the Boxer Rebellion, killing many innocent civilians. The United States disowned the floating city, and it took to the clouds and out of the public eye. For years it was spoken of as a legend or "Boogie Man" to scare children.


SEATTLE -- 2K Games and developer Gearbox made a surprise reveal at the PAX PRIME 2010 in Seattle when they showed the game for the first time. PAX Prime 2010, also known as the Penny Arcade Expo, is an annual public show centered around video games. Many of the top video game companies are on hand to show off their latest products, some for the first time like Duke Nukem Forever. Duke Nukem Forever's reveal quickly became the biggest story at PAX because of its long history of false starts and its surprise appearance and announcement at PAX that caught even the game media by surprise.
