Pre-order Battleborn on PC for just £18.80

Gearbox Software's next title will be with us in February, and this is the best pre-order offer around if you're after the PC version. It beats the next best price by over a tenner. Having revealed its latest character during this weekend's PlayStation Experience presser, this hero shooter will feature team-based multiplayer, and a story campaign that can be played solo or co-op. That's about as much as we can say right now as we've not got hands-on with it, but there's a beta due to begin next month, so hopefully we'll know if it's up to the same standard as Borderlands before release. Still, if you absolutely must get it, this is the best price around. Thanks to Ag2014 @ HUKD!

Get Borderlands 2 GOTY Edition on PC for just £8.75

Gamersgate are currently doing a huge sale on Borderlands franchise (including the DLC, in case you already own the base game and are looking to expand your experience) but it you're one of the few people who hasn't jumped in on the action this deal is the best around for the complete experience at the time of writing. So what do you get? Most of the major DLC packs released so far, which includes Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, both Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Packs, the Mechromancer and Psycho characters, Creature Slaughterdome, Collector's Edition Pack, Premiere Club, and a number of character customisation skins and heads. In other words, for under a tenner you're getting a huge amount of content for an excellent game.

E3 Battleborn trailer shows off gameplay

The new E3 trailer for Battleborn has been released early and it's looking pretty good. We'll remain cautious until we've got our hands on the new FPS/MOBA hybrid as Gearbox's output in recent years has varied considerably (Borderlands series - ace. Aliens: Colonial Marines and Duke Nukem' Forever - balls.).

It's undeniably pretty though, reminding me of the colourful aesthetic of WildStar. Unlike WildStar though, Battleborn will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One as well as the PC. With any luck we'll find out how the FPS/MOBA model is going to work out as more details emerge during E3.

Get Borderlands 2 on the Vita for just £14.99

Borderlands 2 for PS Vita is currently £14.99 from Grainger Games

The Vita version of Borderlands 2 has managed to hold its price surprisingly well, but this latest offer from Grainger Games is one of the cheapest we've seen for a brand new copy, beating the next best deal by a fiver. The port to the Vita isn't flawless, but it's a faithful one that brings the entire Borderlands 2 experience to a handheld. With most of the DLC included in the purchase, and the ability to cross save with the PS3 version, newcomers and fans of the series alike might see it as a reason to return to Pandora.

Get Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PC for just £14.99

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PC is currently £14.99 from Amazon

Here's one of the lowest prices we've seen for the PC version of The Pre-Sequel, with Amazon's latest deal working out £7 better than the next cheapest deal elsewhere. Although it didn't really offer anything particularly new, and the story didn't capitalise upon the potential that was there, it doesn't change the fact The Pre-Sequel is great fun, especially in co-op.

Get Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PS3 for just £19.99 from The Game Collection

Today's flash deal from The Game Collection brings the PS3 version of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to the lowest we've seen.

Although it didn't really offer anything particularly new, and the story didn't capitalise upon the potential that was there, it doesn't change the fact The Pre-Sequel is great fun, especially in co-op.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is out this week, and the review embargo is up. But we're not quite ready to drop the verdict of Gearbox and 2K Australia's latest just yet. Our review will be along later this week, but in the interim, here's a little look at the game's opening scenes.

Definitely check out Carl's interview with the devs too.

How come Claptrap can navigate stairs in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel? Why the hell does he need oxygen? What's the most badass, awesome thing in a game overflowing with badassery and awesomesauce?

Carl catches up with Gearbox's James Lopez and 2K Australia's Joel Eschler at this year's Gamescom to find out, and get the lowdown on the latest addition to the playable roster for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Preview | Claptrap Is The Best Worst Vault Hunter EVER

"You're... GOING TO LOVE ME!!"

Forget Lilith. Zer0 wh0? There's a new vault hunter in town, an unstoppable force of pure chaos, and its name is...

...Claptrap? Oh no.

Oh yes. The irritating yelllow robot who everybody hates to love has finally got his chance to shine in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and having stepped into his chassis for an hour at Gamescom, he's possibly the most ridiculously brilliant character in the series to date.

And possibly the worst. See, whereas most vault hunters bring a single powerful primary ability to the table, literally anything can happen when you hit that left bumper. Sometimes you'll turn into a pirate galleon. Sometimes you'll force bizarre statuses on your entire team, such as infinitely throwing grenades or bouncing off all surfaces like a mad pinball machine. And then, damage done, you can ask for a high five. I'm going to regale you with my stories from Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel soon, but right now, it's time to do the moon dance.

Yes, Colonial Marines is a big bag of xenomorph effluence. But sometimes a bad game can be worth dropping two quid on just for the lulz. Alternatively, you can probably buy the DVD of Aliens for this much. Or a little paint tester kit, which you could watch dry.

The disc also makes a great coaster. Thanks to Irah @ HUKD!

Not made that generation jump? Don't bother just yet

Not made that generation jump? Don't bother just yet

Titanfall 360 and Borderlands Pre-Sequel illustrate that we're not ready to let go of last-gen yet

Titanfall on Xbox 360 is great fun. It's not as sharp as its Xbox One sibling, nor is it as impressive in terms of framerate, but at its core it's still the same fast-paced, exhilarating experience that we've come to find on the other platforms thus far.

Put simply, I'm not entirely sure that the difference between the Xbox 360 version and the Xbox One version is worth forking out £400 for.

We're nearly five months on now from the release of the Xbox One and the PS4, and we've seen prices fall a little in that time, but I'd still posit that there's little reason to invest in the advent of this new generation of video game consoles, and the Titanfall situation perfectly illustrates why: we're not ready to let go of last-gen just yet.

We speculated that the delay of the 360 version, and the fact that no-one had seen or heard anything much about it until a couple of days before release, might have been because it was crap. That's a fairly tried-and-tested strategy in the games industry: if you have a crap game it's either vertical slice time (hello Aliens), or you follow that old adage of if you haven't got anything good to say, don't say anything at all. It's all helped along by the fact that 2014 has seen some of the most hilariously overblown scrutiny of games and visuals and technical specifications and comparisons that a tiny, tiny, very vocal niche care about. As soon as you put something out there in the virtual ether, it's going to get torn apart, and so we often jump to the conclusion that no news is probably bad news.

Not made that generation jump? Don't bother just yet

But in this instance it would seem that the reverse is true: that the Xbox 360 port is good enough to have probably posed a challenge to the more expensive, pleasebuyaconsoleforthis Xbox One version of Titanfall, and that says much about the fragility of this first year of next-gen gaming. With third parties going for an expansive approach, and hamstringing the potential of current-gen versions to allow for feature-complete last-gen games, the exclusive big hitters matter more for Sony and Microsoft, and it makes sense to try and make things as easy for the likes of Titanfall and inFamous: Second Son as is possible. Given the choice between forking out forty quid for a really enjoyable version of Titanfall on Xbox 360 and ten times that for Titanfall on Xbox One, many might have gone for the former over the latter.
