Borderlands 2 review snippet How funny is Borderlands 2?
Humour's a really subjective thing and I just didn't find Borderlands 2 funny. The writers have gone for crazy characters but I didn't think any of their jokes were any good. As I said, this is all subjective, I know other people think they're hilarious.

It depends if the terrorist players are in a tea bagging mood.

I only took the basic game tier, but yeah. I'm kind of ashamed of having supported this.


Whatever. I just want the single player anyway. That's all I ever wanted, a follow up to Wing Commander.

Likewise. Unfortunately it looks like Squadron 42 is the last piece of the puzzle :(

Evil Genius. Such a great concept, I'm amazed it hasn't been revived up to this point. Same for Startopia.


A sequel to Master of Orion 2. Because as we all know, MOO3 NEVER HAPPENED.


No One Lives Forever. Set today. Kate Archer's Daughter (Granddaughter?) is the main character, and Kate provides mentorship and training.


Sword of the Samurai. With the success of CK2 and Shogun 2, I think this would be a huge hit.

I started playing Evil Genius again recently and it truly is a wonderful concept. I'd love to see someone make a sequel!

Would you like us to run a PCGamesN Blood Bowl League?
jon_hill987 Avatar

What about the possibility of streaming matches? Or at least uploading highlights of the season to YouTube?

Julian Benson Avatar

This is something I'll definitely look into. If there's a spectator mode that I can gain access to then I should be able to stream the games

And I suddenly have an idea for a PCGN Blood Bowl league... Does such a thing exist? Should such a thing exist?

Julian Benson Avatar

Great idea! I'm gauging interest over on the forums. If we can get a group of players together then we'll make this happen

Ah okay. It wasn't really important to me so I guessed I never noticed. Apologies.

I've not had the chance to play Cataclysm yet so I couldn't say to its quality of the list :(


As to Plants Vs Zombies over Minecraft, I'd already got a fair number of survival games on the list and wanted to make sure I had a variety of genres represented.


And The Last of Us, soon as it comes out on PC, my friend.

I see. I just figured since it was a definitive list (as in "the best on pc") I'd just assume it belonged there.

As for diverse genres, ok, but that shouldn't matter in a top 10? Ah well no matter I guess.


As for TLOU, haha that's fair enough. I didn't even think about that (obviously). Fantastic game though!

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review snippet How open is Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor to explore?
This is one area the game really falls down. The two regions we get to play in are relatively small, feeling much more compact that games like Grand Theft Auto and Assassin's Creed. Yet, despite their small size, none of the areas really stand out. The fortresses all feel similar and largely indistinguisable and the landscape does nothing to excite the eye.

I'd think they plan on making a large part of it back on merchandising. They've bought the most popular franchise for an entire generation of children, I reckon it'll pay off for quite a while.


Somewhat like Disney buying Star Wars

I figured it would be something like that. I hope it doesn't go down th Angry Bird route. 2.5 billion is a lot of stuffed creepers
