PAX East 2014 | Borderlands the Pre-Sequel

Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is set between Borderlands and Borderlands 2 (see how it’s both a prequel and sequel?) and takes place on the moon of Pandora. (Because 2K Australia was behind getting this game out, everyone on the moon is Australian.)
I died a little when I heard there would be another Borderlands game AND it would be staring Claptrap! Well, Claptrap will be one a four playable characters.
This game will follow the rise of Handsome Jack, who is your boss/leader.
Most of the gameplay seems the same as it was in Borderlands 2– which is a pro in my book. There are a few new features like cryo-bullets that freeze enemies so they can be smashed.
This time, because you’re on the moon, there is a new piece of gear you get: your O2 thing. They called it “Oz” in the demo. Oz lets you double jump, hover, and super stomp (especially cryo-frozen bandits). You’ll also have the pleasure of blowing bandits off the moon when you grenade them!

The Rapture

Today either is, or isn’t the Rapture. Let’s face it, probably ‘isn’t’. We’ve been getting a huge number of new visitors from Rapture based searches, and I just wanted to say: Hello, Fellow Paranoids!
Regardless of whether the Rapture has occured or not, there is still a lot of survival based stuff to learn. We hope you stick around, and figure out how to survive a more likely apocalypse. Like hyper-intelligent animals, or cats with thumbs. Or genetically engineered plants.
Take a look around, figure out your best survival techniques. Our archives are listed by topic down the side there. Start with all the posts listed in ‘Basic Survival‘, and if nothing’s kicking down the door to your house, read the rest. And if you can think of something we haven’t covered, and you want to write for us, please do contact us at info @ incaseofsurvival .com.
Don’t forget to join the facebook group, ‘like’ the official facebook page, and follow us on Twitter.
Note: If the Rapture has happened and you’re still here- God has abandoned you, you may as well start looting.*
 
 
 
*Please make sure the Rapture has actually happened before you do this.

Post-apocalyptic Video Game: RAGE

Set for release in September 2011, Rage embraces the notion of a chaotic, violent and indulgent future. It has a similar vibe to the Max Max or A Boy and His Dog universes. It’s some how dark and dangerous while still being light and fun.
