After six years in Steam Early Access, I imagined developers Lo-Fi Games would look at doing anything but reliving that process all over again.

The office is eerily empty tonight, as RPS has vanquished another foe, and been locked out in turn by my guerrilla forces. I am alone in the building. There is only me, Candide the rainbow llama, and the endless invisible stream of code I must consume to sustain my terrible power. It is time, my

Listen, it’s a tough world out there. Whether dead or alive, we’re all feeling the strain, and it’s hard enough getting a job even with a heartbeat.

You can’t have a discussion about the best Borderlands 3 weapons without discussing Legendary weapons – those rare gold guns that drop very occasionally from bosses, Loot Ticks, and high-value chests (to name only a few).

Battle-royale-slash-ginormous-advertising-platform Fortnite has confirmed its Batman partnership in a blink and you’ll miss it livestream. Luckily, as is the power of online video, you can watch it again at your leisure, including right below.
