Borderlands 2

Josh's Top 5 Games of 2013

For me, 2013 was about change. Life changes, career changes, and changes in the way I play and enjoy games. Almost every game I truly loved this year would never be found on a GameStop store shelf, and they brought me immensely more value than any number of AAA titles. I was looking forward to developers improving existing formulas this year, but instead I got completely new experiences that I wouldn't have dreamed of just a few years ago. Here are a few of my favorites.

Gearbox Software: Turning Frustration into Unexpected Happiness

One of the many panels I attended at PAX East 2013 was the panel hosted by Gearbox Software. It was a massive panel held in the Main Theatre that I originally didn’t plan on attending. I like Gearbox just fine but at that point I hadn’t read the description and had conjured up the idea of Gearbox dudes just talking about how great Borderlands 2 is. Eventually, when I actually read the description for the panel, I figured it was worth going to. The panel had exclusive info, some awesome inside scoops, and best of all…free stuff!

Allen's Top 5 Games of 2012

Another year, another contender for game of the year! Maybe it's just me but it felt like this year was a bit more subdued than previous years and with few exceptions, there weren't a whole lot of major AAA titles. That's not to say 2012 wasn't a good year for video games. Emotions ran high with the conclusion of the Mass Effect trilogy, a starry-eyed MMO didn't make it a full year without going free to play, video games proved once again that they have the capacity to make the player cry and some fresh new properties proved that even as we near the end of this console cycle, there is still so much more fun to be had.
