TWIG: Swans, Cars, and Guns.

Oasis

Hey, vault hunters! Did you know the Borderlands 2 DLC came out? “Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty” is a campaign expansion set in a very,very sandy place of Pandora. There is no water, save for an underwater oasis you have go to through for one of the missions. There’s a new vehicle, new enemies, new bosses. I’ve only played through about a quarter of the new story campaign, and I’ve run across more weird then I thought I would. It’s perfect Borderlands.

While I haven’t found another Tiny Tina, Captain Scarlett is close to being so completely insane and funny that she might be your new favorite character. I don’t trust that Shade fella’, though. There’s also the mechromancer character available for download, if you want to spend the points on that. She’s the newest class, a sassy teenager  with the default name Gaige with a robot pal that kicks series bandit butt, once you level him up enough

The Unfinished Swan

October 23, 2012

PS3/PSN

This extremely artistic indie is a stark, minimalist maze game, and you’re choosing to chase a swan. Why does one chase a swan? In this case, it is to discover the King of Stark Swantopia. Start with a blank screen and throw paint to discover the landscape around you. It sounds extremely engaging and I… I want to play it.

IGN:
An independently-produced title, Unfinished Swan is a surreal maze game set in an entirely blank world. You find yourself chasing after a swan who has wandered off into a surreal, unfinished kingdom. The game begins in a completely white space, and you can throw paint to splatter the surroundings and reveal the world around you. Discover the land through further innovative new game mechanics to uncover your surroundings. Each level will bring new twists, challenges, and puzzles until you eventually come face-to-face with the eccentric King that built this realm.
