Borderlands 2: Mr Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage DLC Out Next Week

"YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH"

Gearbox have stopped playing coy about the latest expansion for Borderlands 2: Mr Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage. The fittingly explosive expansion campaign will launch on November 20th for $10/800 Microsoft Points, and is naturally included in the season pass.

Joystiq reports that standard fetch and kill quests are interspersed with Underdome-style arena battles, courtesy of the eponymous villain who rocks big guns (in any sense of the phrase) and A LOVE OF EXCESSIVE CAPITALISATION.

New screenshots and a teaser trailer suggest that Mr Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage probably won't be particularly subtle. Also, Truckasaurus.

Borderlands 2: Mr Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage DLC Confirmed

Gearbox has confirmed that the next piece of Borderlands 2 DLC will indeed be the rumoured Mr. Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage. There he is, look. Gosh.

Skyrim: Dragonborn Gets First Screenshots & Details

After the debut trailer went live last week, Skyrim's latest expansion has revealed more its secrets in some new screenshots. Dragonborn will take players to the frozen island of Solstheim (which many of us will remember from Morrowind: Bloodmoon), empowering them with new shouts, weapons, armour and mounts as they take on the first Dovakiin.

With Rieklings and Netch making a welcome return, amongst other new enemies, we hope that Dragonborn will evoke some of the more alien and unpredictable design elements that made Morrowind such a unique RPG experience.

This six minutes of gameplay footage shows off the size of one of the singleplayer levels, along with the strategic opportunities it offers.

Spin the Bottle Promises "Innocent Fun For Innocent Kids"

KnapNok Games, Party games, Spin the Bottle, Wii U, WTF?

KnapNok Games have confused us. First of all, it turns out that they're releasing a party game titled Spin the Bottle for Wii U; secondly, they're promising "innocent fun for innocent kids", which seems a little weird to us considering the name of the game; but that's apparently because, thirdly, apparently the emphasis is on "collaborative micro challenges" rather than wanton making out.

Additionally, the trailer reminds us more of Noby Noby Boy than getting hammered and using the evidence to create a game that's a thinly veiled excuse for a bit of a snog.

According to Polygon (thanks for the tip James!), Spin the Bottle will "require player coordination, trust, body contact, dancing and flexibility". That sounds an awful lot like the pre-requisites for a horizontal tango to us, but that can't be right. This is one for the kids.

*facepalm*

However, it does allow us to post an almost completely gratuitous Peep Show excerpt, so that's fine then. Spin the Bottle is set for release next year.

PSN Store Update: Portal On The Move, Black Ops Declassified

This week's PlayStation Store update finally brings us Counter-Strike: GO.

Only joking.

Instead, we have the new expansion for Portal 2, In Motion, that features a motion-controlled campaign compatible with the PlayStation Move. PS Plus members can get a 30% discount. New games include Of Orcs And Men and a complete Saints Row package, alongside Black Ops: Declassified for the PS Vita. Early reports suggest that you should avoid Nihilistic's portable Call Of Duty title like the plague, and for the sake of full disclosure, review code hasn't been made available to us (danger!).

Either way, as always, we have the lean update and prices after the break - thanks to the latest post on the PlayStation Blog.
